Genetic Folate Deficiency Linked to Parkinson’s

Posted By Dr. Michael Polsinelli, DC On June 23, 2011 @ 8:42 pm In Health | No Comments

I’ve written a bunch [1]about a genetic defect that affect 1 in 7 people. This defect keeps us from converting folate (folic acid) to its final usable form. It is linked to heart disease [2] (heart attacks, strokes), Alzheimer’s, depression, anxiety, aspartame sensitivities, ADHD, autism, mercury toxicity, and many more things.

A question came up today about Parkinson’s disease, so I looked it up and found a research paper stating that folate polymorphism (genetic deficiency) is linked to an increased incidence of Parkinson’s.

The good news is that this genetic problem can be managed with supplementation of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), which is the final usable form of folate.

BTW, 5-MTHF is on sale this month [3].
