Are you sure you're methylating?

Methylation is a simple biochemical process – the transfer of one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms (CH3) from one substance to another. 5-MTHF, or methylfolate, is the most essential nutrient involved in methylation. However, 60 percent of the U.S. population have a genetic SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) that prevents the conversion of inactive folates, like folic acid, into 5-MTHF. Genetic SNPs related to folate metabolism and methylation are implicated in numerous health conditions, including:
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Birth Defects
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Memory Loss
  • Migraine
  • Recurrent Miscarriage
