MTHFR Testing

The MTHFR Mutation is found throughout the population in the United States. However, many people are asymptomatic (without symptoms). If you suffer from depression, anxiety, difficulty focusing, or poor memory, you may be one of the people that are symptomatic from this enzyme mutation. Also, if you have high levels of inflammation or homocysteine (hyperhomocysteinemia), you may need to supplement L-methylfolate. The MTHFR enzyme is found throughout your body, and its functions include:

  • Anti-inflammation / anti-oxidation
  • Detoxification of heavy metals–Mercury
  • Production of neurotransmitters in your brain
  • –Serotonin
  • –Norepinephrine
  • –Dopamine
  • –Epinephrine

How do I know if I have this mutation? 
The MTHFR Gene Mutation can be identified through a simple blood test.  The results are generally back in approximately 7-10 days.
