DNA Methylation: A Brief Explanation

You might not have heard of methylation before, but it is an essential component of almost every important process that takes place within your body. If you are looking for ways to boost your health and regulate or support your cardiovascular, reproductive, neurological, and detox systems, then this is the article for you.

In this article, we will discuss the function of DNA methylation within the body and what the effects of DNA methylation are. We will also delve into why some individuals may benefit from DNA methylation supplementation.

DNA Methylation Function

“In a nutshell, methylation is a biological process that switches genes on and off in the body.”

The vital biochemical process of methylation essentially transfers and extracts methyl groups to and from bioactive compounds within your body. These methyl groups consist of one carbon and three hydrogen molecules. This transferal and extraction are vital to the creation of other substances within your body. This process can occur up to a billion times in one second. Methylation also has a hand in DNA production amongst other biochemical reactions within your body.

DNA Methylation Effects

Methylation or the lack thereof can have drastic effects on your body and your health. Some of the key functions that could be affected by methylation include but are not limited to:

  • The repairing of damaged cells.
  • The process of turning genes on and off; thus, forming a part of the process of gene expression.
  • Assisting with detoxification of the body.
  • Forms a part of building neurotransmitters within the body.
  • Assist in the metabolising of hormones. This can include producing oestrogen and energy.
  • The ageing process can be expedited due to a low rate of methylation.
  • Plays a part in the process of carcinogenesis.
