Is There a Connection Between MTHFR and Eczema?


As researchers continue to uncover more about the MTHFR gene, we are discovering more about the symptoms and side effects experienced by those with a mutation in the gene.

Homocysteine and Hyperhomocysteinemia: Hard to spell. Easy to manage


Since we’re science people and love the mysteries of the body, let’s talk about another one.  Homocysteine. Homocysteine is a common amino acid (aka the “building blocks of proteins”) in your blood.

Enzymes: Kind of a Big Deal


Enzymes are make or break substances when it comes to your health, but we rarely give them much thought when actually, good enzyme health isn’t a given. So...what really ARE they, anyway? The dictionary defines an enzyme as “a substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction.” Some of those biochemical reactions are vital to us as humans--digestion, respiration, and metabolism, to name a few of them. And enzymes have varying duties in the body. They might bind molecules together to produce a new molecule or, conversely, break large molecules into smaller pieces to be more easily absorbed by the body. Some of the enzymes in the human body and...

Sometimes you can see your migraines coming from a mile away, and all you can do is brace yourself for the onslaught; other times, they hit out of nowhere.
