In addition, measuring total antioxidant capacity through Spectrox® is important to determine the body’s ability to handle oxidated stresses that contribute to telomere health and length.
MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase)
Mutation in the MTHFR enzyme affecting the metabolism of homocysteine and causes accumulations. This accumulation impairs methylation or the biochemical process involved ed in numerous functions in your body. This function includes cellular repair, energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter production, immunity, and others. In addition, MTHFR mutations are linked to increased risk for cardiovascular disease, blood vessel damage, blood clots or thrombosis, stroke, and degenerative aging.
