Methylation is a biochemical process in the body that occurs billions of times every second in almost every cell of the body, therefore it influences almost all processes in the body. Key functions of methylation include repairing damaged cells, turning genes on/off, detoxification, building neurotransmitters, metabolising hormones e.g. estrogen and producing energy
What is methylation
Methylation is a biochemical process in the body that occurs billions of times every second in almost every cell of the body, therefore it influences almost all processes in the body.
In summary, the key functions of methylation include:
- Repairing damaged cells Turning genes on/off
- Building neurotransmitters
- Metabolising hormones e.g. estrogen
- Building immune cells
- Producing energy
- Producing a protective coating on the nerves (myelination)
Physiologically, methylation is the addition of a methyl group (a carbon atom with three hydrogen atoms attached) to proteins, enzymes, chemicals, DNA or amino acids such as homocysteine. Effective methylation also has roles in the biosynthesis and breakdown of catecholamines, such as adrenaline.
