MTHFR Gene Mutation for Beginners


There are over 20,000 genes made of DNA in the human body and they are each essential to defining who you are as a unique individual. One of the thousands of genes in our body is called the MTHFR gene, which has turned a lot of heads recently.  The MTHFR gene is responsible for helping produce methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), an enzyme that plays a vital role in turning folic acid (Vitamin B9) into methylfolate, the form your cells use directly. Methylfolate is the most active form of folate or Vitamin B9 -- and is important for methylation.  Methylation is a process that helps create DNA, allows for detoxification to occur, promotes neurotransmitters, and even plays a role in metabolizing hormones....

What Does Citicoline Do for the Brain?


Our brain is the most complex part of our body. It’s an organ that’s been studied for hundreds of years, yet we still know so little about it. As research continues daily, we are learning more about what our brain needs to function and what we can do to help it function better.  It is known that there are hundreds of neurons and neurotransmitters throughout our bodies that are affecting a wide range of our bodily functions. When these aren’t connecting properly, we l experience a variety of mental disruptions.  One promising nutrient that’s recently been uncovered in the search for cognitive health is citicoline, which many researchers are claiming to be their favorite brain nutrient.  What is Citicoline? Citicoline’s...

Do Multivitamins Help You Lose Weight?


You’ve probably heard your family, doctors, or teachers tell you about the importance of vitamins and minerals in your diet. One question that gets asked often is whether these vitamins can do anything for weight loss.  The short answer is yes, but it’s also a complicated answer. While vitamins can play a role in losing weight, they do so indirectly and behind-the-scenes. For many people, vitamins will make a good “workout buddy” when trying to lose weight, but they won’t be able to achieve that feat alone.  With that being said, let’s explain a little further how multivitamins can help you lose weight.  Multivitamins Improve Metabolism If you’re trying to lose weight, your main goal is going to be burning...

Is Your Body Getting Enough Magnesium?


Magnesium is an essential part of our body’s chemical reactions. In fact, it’s essential to more than 300 biochemical reactions in our body that happen simultaneously. For those that are deficient in this mineral (and this is a large percentage of the population due to its lack in our current food supply), proper supplementation will be recommended.  What does magnesium do for us, anyway? Not only will it help convert food into energy, but it will aid in the creation of proteins, muscle movements, regulating neurotransmitters, and repairing/forming new DNA and RNA. Outside of that, magnesium can indirectly help your athletic performance, fight depression, lower blood pressure, promote a healthy heartbeat, and has anti-inflammatory properties. How Much Magnesium Do We...

Nutrigenomics, Epigenetics & MTHFR


Nutrigenomics and epigenetics are two fancy words that have circulated around the world of medicine for decades. If you see a functional or an integrative health practitioner, you may be familiar with one or both of these words. Let’s break it down into simpler terms: Epigenetics is a term that is used to identify how the environment interacts with our genes. Epigenetic research has shown that our lifestyle choices, our environment, and our exposure to toxins can actually impact how genes are expressed. Genes that are expressed explain some of our differences, including our individual vulnerabilities to certain health conditions. Nutrigenomics is the study of how nutrition affects the expression of genes. Scientists have learned that vital nutrients give your...
