In this talk, we will review folate, tetrahydrofolate, 4-10 methionine THF, homocysteine, s-adenosyl homocysteine, s-adenosyl methionine, and metabolisms. We will also go over the importance of the methionine tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) enzyme deficiency and its association with cardiovascular system pathologies, and fetal neurological developmental abnormalities. We will especially look at the increased association with clotting in individuals with MTHFR mutated enzyme. We will also see the two common mutations and their high-level epidemiology. We will discuss how vitamins B6, B9 (folate or folic acid) and B12 can help reduce homocysteine levels.
