The Role of L-Methylfolate Supplements in Depression Management


Depression is sometimes referred to as ‘the silent killer’, due to the fact that people often suffer in silence, and try to pretend that everything is fine when they’re dealing with the condition.

MTHFR and Fertility: A Link To PCOS


PCOS–long name Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, affects around 10 percent of the female population between the ages of 15 and 44…the childbearing years. A hormonal condition that can affect menstruation, appearance (skin health, hair patterns resembling those of males), and probably most well known, fertility.  PCOS is typically diagnosed when women are trying to get pregnant and have difficulty. But, it can show up any time after puberty. In younger women, PCOS can show up as irregular periods (spaced out or unusually long periods), excess facial or body hair, severe acne, or sometimes even hair loss that resembles male pattern baldness.

MTHFR and Methylation


What is Methylation? In its simplest explanation, methylation is the transformation of food into enzymes or ‘active elements’, the body’s cells can directly and immediately use. The food transformation takes place in the body’s metabolic pathways and may go through many different stages before the conversion to ‘usable enzyme’ is complete. Imagine having a can of soup without a can opener – you have food, it is just not available to you in a form that is useful. Alternatively, imagine having Mexican Pesos while on vacation in Japan, you have money, you just cannot use it. At least not until you convert it to Yen. Well it’s the same with the body’s need for certain enzymes, the food we eat has to be activated or converted into the enzyme form your cells can actually use. Some...

Autism Caregivers, Don’t Forget About YOU.


Over the years (not nearly enough years to fully understand it) autism has been studied, it’s evolved from being thought of as a purely psychological condition, mostly affecting behavior and social interaction, to being recognized as a medical condition with several overlapping sets of problems. One of the newest sets of problems placed within the autism puzzle is this: toxins, along with the two bodily processes that those toxins will nearly universally create–chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.  The Methylation Component Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR, in case you’re new to our blog) is the enzyme that creates activated folate, critical to neurotransmitter function, among other things. MTHFR also methylates vitamin B-12 we eat…and there’s a whole domino effect, as shown above. When...
