Protein Sips with Active Form of Folate (5-MTHF) for those with MTHFR Gene Variation

Hello, Sips Club family!

I’m Katy, a mother of four wonderful kids and CoFounder of Sips Club, and today I want to talk about something that hits close to home for me and many others: the MTHFR gene variation. If you’ve been following our journey at Sips Club, you know that we’re passionate about health and nutrition, especially when it comes to our little ones. Today, I’m excited to share why we’ve included 5-MTHF in our Protein Sips and how it can make a big difference for families like yours.

WHAT IS MTHFR?

Imagine your body is a big construction site, and MTHFR is one of the key workers. This worker’s job is to help convert raw materials (like folate, which is vitamin B9) into a special building block (5-MTHF) that your body can use to build and repair things, like DNA. 

MTHFR GENE VARIATION

Now, let’s say some people have a worker (MTHFR) who isn’t as efficient due to a variation in their genes. This means they have trouble converting raw materials (folic acid) into the usable building block (5-MTHF). It’s like having a construction worker who can’t quite turn cement into bricks fast enough, leading to slower and less effective construction.

WHY 5-MTHF?

Here’s where 5-MTHF comes in. It’s like giving your body pre-made bricks instead of raw cement. For those who have the MTHFR gene variation, using 5-MTHF means their bodies don’t have to work as hard to get the building blocks they need. It’s already in the perfect form, ready to use right away.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND 5-MTHF

Studies have shown that using 5-MTHF is more effective than relying on folic acid, especially for those with MTHFR variations. Think of it as choosing pre-made bricks over mixing your own cement – it’s quicker, easier, and ensures the building gets done correctly. Consuming this active form of folate (5-MTHF) is beneficial for those with and without the MTFR gene variation.

MY FAMILY'S EXPERIENCE

In our household, we’ve noticed the challenges of the MTHFR gene variation. From managing my kids’ well-being to ensuring my family gets the right nutrients, it's been a top priority. Including 5-MTHF in our diet has made a noticeable difference in our energy levels, mood stability, and overall health.

It’s a small change that can make a big impact, for those with or without MTHFR variations.
