Methylation refers to the biochemical pathway in which methyl groups (one carbon and three hydrogen atoms) are added to molecules. Because it is involved in nearly all of the body’s functions, it contributes to countless biological processes including:
- Energy production
- Genetic expression/DNA repair
- Inflammatory, immune, and stress response
- Neurotransmitter balance
- Production and recycling of glutathione
An inability to methylate properly can disrupt any of these processes, ultimately compromising one’s health as the body is not able to effectively respond due to the shortage of methyl groups. Impaired detoxification, cardiovascular disease, neurological problems, and weakened immune functioning in general, are some conditions linked to undermethylation
