TOPIC: Unraveling the Mystery of MTHFR Mutation
Methylation is a major pathway of focus to understand autoimmune and neurological diseases. It is a biochemical pathway that manages or contributes to a wide range of functions including detoxification, conversion of nutrients, DNA and RNA production, proper hormone function, ATP production, reducing inflammation, synthesizing neurotransmitters, homocysteine metabolism, protein methylation, phase 2 liver detoxification and supporting immune function. It is estimated that 40% of our population has a MTHFR mutation. Having a mutation in this pathway can lead to deficiencies and disease. This lecture will provide you with understanding of MTHFR mutations, SNP expression and proper supplementation.
