Why Methylation is a Big Deal?
Methylation is a core process that occurs in all cells
The Methylation process is responsible for:
Synthesis of nucleic acids, production & repair of DNA & mRNA
Detoxification and Neurotransmitter Production:
Interconversion of amino acids
Healthy Immune System Function:
Formation & maturation of red blood cells,white blood cells & platelet production.
MTHFR can make you susceptible to illness because
the pathway is the primary source of glutathione production in the body.
People with MTHFR anomalies usually have low glutathione, which makes them more susceptible to stress and less tolerant to toxins.
As we age MTHFR problems get much worse due to the accumulation of toxins and the cumulative effect of oxidative stress, which ages our bodies.
