MTHFR? Vitamin C Can Boost Your Folate by 50%

August 4, 2015  |  Blog, Histamine Intolerance  |  18 Comments

Do you have mutations of MTHFR? Vitamin C can boost your folate by 50%.

Folate is a critical nutrient for protecting DNA and in homocysteine methylation. Yet folate is very fickle.

If you have an MTHFR mutation, in the presence of oxidative stress, then folate can become unstable and wreak havoc.

However, at least three small human studies, have shown that vitamin C acts to stabilise folate. Not only that but it helps to absorb it even with a fickle C667T MTHFR polymorphism.

A Bio-Individual List of Histamine Inhibitors

This blog post outlines a list of bio-individual histamine inhibitors. It is a companion post for my previous post on the bio-individual triggers of histamine intolerance.

Histamines are a natural chemical in plants, animals, and humans. The body needs histamines to perform critical functions.

The body was designed to be in a state of homeostasis so that the supply of histamine meets the body’s metabolic needs.

Excessive amounts of histamine are normally de-activated by diamine oxidase (DAO), histamine methyl transferase (HNMT), and monoamine oxidase (MAO).

New Ingredient: Glutathione Setria

I wanted to update you on a new ingredient Glutathione Setria® that has hit the market which I am now personally taking.

There are three things going for this ingredient over the Seeking Health Liposomal Glutathione that I have been taking to date.

Product: 

The product I have trialled is  Healthy Origins, Setria, L-Glutathione Reduced, 500 mg, 150 Capsules although the Setria® ingredient is widely available. It is a peptide based version of the three precursors to glutathione.

Price;

Its about half to a third the cost of the liposomal products. Enough said.

Taste;

There is none because it is a powder in a veggie gel cap. No need to grin and bear that strong sulfur taste anymore.

Clinical Trials;

Clearly show that it raises glutathione by up to 1/3rd.  Yes they were done by the company itself, and yes there is only one clinical trial, but its one more than most products. Also from this human test tube’s perspective it works! I literally can feel it in my body when I take it and when I don’t.
