MTHFR is an enzyme that converts folate into the active 5-MTHFR. At Melbourne Natural Medicine, we can provide comprehensive and accurate MTHFR gene tests that assess the functioning of the conversion process. As inadequate conversion can cause various physical and/or mental health problems, testing can help you avoid serious problems before they arise.

Reasons for MTHFR Gene Testing

Mutations that occur during the MTHFR conversion process can affect how much active folate you have available. These mutations can impede the synthesis of DNA and RNA, affecting optimal cell health and amino acid metabolism as well as the formation and maturation of blood cells. Essential detoxification processes can also be adversely affected. These interferences make it more difficult for the body to activate tissue repair and inflammation as well as normal stress responses. Symptoms of MTHFR mutations can include low moods, anxiety, migraines, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances and neurotransmitter deficiencies.

At Melbourne Natural Medicine, we can run tests to identify MTHFR problems and recommend natural solutions to restore optimal functioning.
