  • About 40% of women have the MTHFR gene mutation that makes conversion of folic acid into the form found in your cells difficult.
  • The MTHF form of folate is more accessible for your body since it is already in the form found in your cells.
  • less than 1% of vitamins contain the MTHF form, and it’s often mixed with less active folic acid, dampening the benefits of the MTHF.
