Methylation: Methylation is a process where a specific group of atoms called a methyl group binds to a specific molecule or chemical to change it into what the cells need. Sometimes the methyl group is given to make it easier for it to pass through the cell membrane. Sometimes it is given to create new methyl group to be used somewhere else in the body. Sometimes it is given to create a new chemical to be used in our cells.
In the body, methylation occurs when a hydrogen atom is replaced by the methyl group and bound to the molecule. The methyl group can be bound to different kinds of molecules and turn them into different kinds of chemicals. An enzyme(special protein) that has the methyl group in it and gives it to a molecule or chemical is called a methyl donor. The MTHFR enzyme, produced by the MTHFR gene, is a methyl donor. It gives it's methyl group to the vitamin B9/folic acid.
Methylation is critical to life and without it we would die. Methylation changes molecules into substances that can be used by cells in the body. There are different kinds of methylations. There are different kinds of DNA methylations and different kinds of protein methylations. There are also promoter methylations. Methylation can occur in cells, genes, at promoter sites, all over the body. Methylation can be involved in modification of heavy metals (such as copper), regulation of gene expression, regulation of protein function, and RNA metabolism.
Methylation reactions are essential for the detoxification, healing and functions in the body. Methylation is directly affected by how genes do their job. Methylation is catalyzed by enzymes. Enzyme-genes must function properly for proper methylation to occur. You can be a high methylator or a low methylator or just a normal methylator where everything methylates as it should. Most people with UC are low methylators.
Try the multi vitamin called Nutrient 950. Post your results.
