Methylation is the process of a molecule known as a 'methyl group', made up of 1 carbon and 3 hydrogens atoms, being applied in countless critical functions in your body such as thinking, repairing DNA, turning genes on and off, fighting infections and detoxifying environmental toxins...

Methylation occurs probably billions of times every second in every cell in your body!

KNOW MORE | METHYLATION

We joined circles with Dr Kara Fitzgerald. In the 3 videos below, Dr Heidi asked Kara to describe methylation in simple terms. Optimising your methylation is key to preventing many lifestyle-related chronic diseases and working towards your optimal wellness potential.

What is methylation?

How do you support optimal methylation?

What are the correct quantities of methylation nutrients?

Do our methylation quiz

Many important processes in your body rely on healthy methylation. Your methylation genes and the right nutritional choices will determine how well you methylate. Problems with methylation are involved in neurological dysfunction, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, heart disease and cancer.

The good news is that methylation can be 'fixed' through the right nutrition and the removal of toxins.

Do our methylation quiz and we will send you your results together with 'how' you can get started with some better choices. 

 

DNA & BIOCHEMISTRY TESTS | METHYLATION

A DNA test can show whether your body has any genetic 'misspellings' ('variations' or 'SNP's') for coding enzymes involved in methylation. If you do, you might have signs of imbalances in your biochemistry and symptoms in your body. You can measure and track these biochemical imbalances with a methylation biochemistry test. Pairing a DNA test + a methylation biochemistry test is a great way to getting a lot of good info with which to start creating your personalised methylation support protocol. 

Just a note: Our DNA | Health and DNA | Estrogen tests analyse methylation genes, with DNA | Health analysing the most. I've loaded a test called 'DNA | Methylation Panel' - this tests the same methylation genes as the methylation panel in our DNA | Health test. Unless price is an issue or you have specific reason for only wanting to test your methylation genes, please consider doing the DNA | Health test as this will give you a more comprehensive overview of related biochemical processes. If you need help deciding on which test is right for you, please call or email me: drheidi@joincircles.com

JOINCIRCLES AROUND YOUR METHYLATION PATHWAYS

Once you know more about how your unique body is methylating, you can start to support your methylation pathways in 3 ways:

 

1. NUTRITION: Nourish your methylation biochemistry by eating and supplementing key nutrients required for optimal methylation.


2. ENVIRONMENT: Protect your methylation pathways from needing to 'overwork' to detox unnecessary toxins by swapping all your body care and home products for toxin-free versions.


3. LIFESTYLE: Nurture behaviors that will support methylation. Exercise, sleep, and stress transformation all support healthy methylation.

        1. NUTRITION | METHYLATION

        Certain vitamins and nutrients are needed for methylation to work optimally. Below are foods that are rich in these key nutrients. If you know you aren't going to get through enough of these foods in your day, or if you have genetic variations that need extra methylation support, consider supplementing.

         

        Foods that contain nutrients for methylation

        Vitamin B6

        Tuna, turkey, beef, chicken, salmon, sunflower seeds, spinach, bananas, sweet potatoes

        Vitamin B12

        Liver, beef, chicken, fish, eggs, rainbow trout, salmon, haddock, tuna

        Folate

        Liver, chicken, egg yolk, lentils, split peas, soybeans, almonds, potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, beetroot, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, bok choy, asparagus, bananas, peaches

        Methionine

        Egg white, whole eggs, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, soy protein, chicken, tuna, beef, chickpea, almonds, pinto beans, lentils, brown rice
