Can your diet really work with your genes?

So you find out you have an MTHFR variant, and maybe a few others. Now what? Can your diet really make a difference? When you’re thinking DNA, you probably don’t think ‘greens and beens’. But what you eat works intimately with the genes you’ve been dealt and this is why there’s been a lot of buzz around methylation, folate and MTHFR.

What the MTHFR?

There is one gene  – MTHFR –  that is getting a lot of attention right now, and for very good reason. MTHFR helps to drive some important metabolic pathways and it’s very common in our population. Approximately 5-12% of people are homozygous for the most common gene change in the MTHFR gene, 677C>T, making it an important starting point for healthcare.
