Has anyone else ever felt overwhelmed with the vast amount of information out there regarding our children's health? 🙋🏼 Sometimes it feels like every blog post and magazine article is alerting you to a new crisis in our parenting.
So. Many. Things. 😵
I know how helpful it is to have someone put a spotlight on the truly vital info. Well, here is some tinformation today that was shared in my health group.
Do you know what MTHFR is?
MTHFR is a gene mutation AND it effects up to HALF of the population!! 👀 That means there's a good chance someone or multiple people in your house have this mutation.
Just a glimpse at the potential damage...😢If you or your kiddos have it they can’t absorb folic acid properly. Folic acid helps growth and repair of every cell.
Here’s a short list of a few known way that MTHFR can present in health issues:
💥Neural Tube Defects
People with the MTHFR mutation are unable to “methylate” ingredients like Folic Acid, as well as certain B vitamins. Instead, these ingredients turn TOXIC in their body. 🌿Methylation, simply put, it’s the ability to process toxins and hormones. When the methylation process is inhibited the body becomes more susceptible to oxidative stress, and far less tolerant to toxins. This lack of detoxification can lead to all kinds of behavioral, mental, and even physical illnesses or disabilities like the ones mentioned above.
Since nearly half the population has this condition, to be on the safe side, it's a good idea for all of us to be consuming nutrition that is ALREADY Methylated and can be readily and quickly absorbed!! Methylated vitamins and nutrients are beneficial for EVERYONE, no one is excluded, yet everyone is covered!! While MANY aren't, the Plexus XFactor Plus are fully methylated!
I am thankful for this multivitamin. I struggle with detoxing and absorbing nutrients, but with this multivitamin, I have seen my health improve greatly.
Is this your first time learning about this common gene mutation? Do you think you would benefit from a methylated vitamin?
