123: Your “MTHFR” Is Just a Riboflavin Deficiency

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 123


Got MTHFR? 😬

Relax! Riboflavin will come to the rescue! 😁

MTHFR is an enzyme that uses folate (vitamin B9) to support your mental and physical health. It does so by using riboflavin (vitamin B2) to make the methyl group of methylfolate. 

The common polymorphisms that lower MTHFR activity may do so simply by hurting its ability to bind riboflavin, and enough riboflavin may be able to bring that activity completely back up to normal!
