Should you care about your MTHFR?

Here’s how to find out your MTHFR genetic status and know how it affects you.

MTHFR is an enzyme that allows folate, or vitamin B9, to support a process known as methylation. Methylation is important to mental health, cardiovascular health, sports performance, and preventing cancer, just to name a few. In this episode, I show you how to find your MTHFR genetic status. I also discuss how the various different genetic combinations impact you and how you can leverage that information to determine how strictly you should follow the dietary recommendations I’ll outline in the next episode.

CMJ Masterpass holders can access the transcript here.

Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.

To get these episodes free of ads, with transcripts, and weeks or sometimes even months before they are released to the public, along with access to monthly live Q&A sessions, sign up for the CMJ Masterpass at https://chrismasterjohnphd.com/masterpass.

  1. Chris, this has been an interesting series on MTHFR. I took a look at my downloaded 23&Me data and I show double mutations for both snps and one mutation for MTHFD1. Normal for SLC19a1. Looks like testing is order, though I wonder if the Doc will think I’m nuts asking for them. Fortunately I am an almost daily egg and greens eater. Do have an opinion on oxalate levels in greens (spinach) eaten on a daily basis?

    I did have plasma homocysteine levels checked a few years ago and they were within the range listed 11.7 — ref 0.0-15.

    Many thanks,
    Nick
