This is a genetic variation which makes it very difficult to absorb your B vitamins including folic acid. This can be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and other health risks including elevated Homocysteine levels in the body.
If you have this variation you may suffer with some of the symptoms of B vitamin deficiency such as low energy, low mood, poor memory but taking some B vitamin supplements can actually make you feel worse.
Knowing whether you have this gene variation means you can choose the most appropriate supplementation your body needs and reduce your risks for a number of chronic diseases.
This Gene Mutation is also tested in The Health and Wellbeing Genetic Profile.
