METHYLATION … This is the latest buzzword in the health industry and for good reason: It’s a biochemical process involved in almost all of your body’s functions!
Think of billions of little on/off switches inside your body that control everything from your stress response…. To how your body makes energy from food….to your brain chemistry and detoxification. That’s methylation and demethylation.
Plexus updated their XFactor multivitamin formula in October 2015, making it vegetarian friendly, upgrading some of the ingredients, and making it fully methylated.
Soooooooo… What is methylation and why should you care? You see, approximately 40% or more of the population has the MTHFR genetic mutation which can inhibit the breakdown of toxins in your body and very importantly, inhibit metabolization of B-vitamin folate (also called B9 or folic acid). The methylation in XFactor with aloe actually drives the nutrients into the cells where they work, instead of staying in the blood! (If you have MTHFR, we can chat more about consulting your physician to look in to this further!)
BOTTOM LINE … Plexus XFactor rocks!! If you are taking a boring old regular multivitamin, then we need to talk! Seriously.
