Why is an MTHFR test important?
Determining your MTHFR genotype gives you valuable information about your body's ability to methylate. Methylation is a crucial part of cell processes and reduced function has been linked to numerous medical conditions including neurological and cardiovascular disorders, mental dysfunctions and diabetes. The old paradigm that we are simply at the mercy of our genes is now challenged by a new age of truly individualized healthcare. Get vital knowledge for your personalized healthcare solutions today.
What role does nutrition play in this function?
Nutrition plays a substantial role in methylation pathways, and SpectraCell's Micronutrient testing can give you an accurate stats of 33 vitamins, minerals and amino acids. You may be able to compensate for your body's inability to methylate efficiently through targeted repletion, and micronutrient testing will provide assessment of nutritional deficiencies. The test also allows you to identify deficiencies in other micronutrients that can be contributing toward the development and/or progression of chronic disease and keep you from feeling your best.
