WHAT’S NEW AT THE CENTER
Staff Retreat– Dr. Erickson and most staff will be out of the office on their annual staff retreat and planning session from April 24th through April 28th. The office will have limited hours and staffing during those dates, from 9AM to 3PM.
Product Highlights- 5-MTHF provides a prescription strength 1mg dose of the active form of folic acid (L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate). Over 50% of the population have a defect in the MTHFR gene that could lead to diminished levels of active folate. This could lead to high amounts of homocysteine, a cardiovascular risk factor.
Additionally, low methylfolate levels may also lead to decreased production of neurotransmitters, and could predispose an individual to certain psychiatric disorders and/or memory and attention deficits. One bottle containing 60 vegetarian capsules is $18. The Center also offers genomics testing to see if you have a MTFHR genetic polymorphism.
Upcoming Topics in our next Newsletter will include information about adaptogens in medicine and lead in green tea.
