Can MTHFR be cured by taking MORS?

Supplements may help: MTHFR (methylene tetrahydrofolate (folic acid) reductase) deficiency is a genetic condition in which elevated homocysteine is due to abnormal folate (folic acid) metabolism. Elevated homocysteine has been implicated w/ cardiovascular problems & other medical issues. Because its a genetic condition, there's no cure.Often times supplements (MORS) which use an alternative folate (folic acid) metabolic pathway may help the condition.
