  Although it looks like an acronym for a dirty word, MTHFR stands for methyletetrahydrofolate reductase—which is an enzyme that converts folic acid (vitamin B9) into its usable, active form—called methyl-folate (5MTHF).  Active methyl-folate is important because it plays a crucial role in a biochemical process called methylation.

  Here’s an eye-opening statistic--currently, nearly three out of four Americans are overweight or obese.  And those numbers are not going down.

Are you missing these crucial warning signs?

Are you missing these crucial warning signs?

For example, back pain usually means inflammation; heartburn is a sign your digestion is off; or if you wake up with a sore throat and runny nose, you probably have a cold. But sometimes the signs we get are rather vague …so we might not suspect there is trouble brewing. This is especially true when...
