Methylation

  • Methylation is a mechanism of epigenetics where methyl groups are added to DNA molecules. This process of methylation causes inheritable changes to the DNA segment without changing the DNA sequence itself.
  • Methylation plays a vital role in optimising the function of many processes within the body including:
    • DNA repair
    • Hormone regulation
    • Immune system health
    • Energy production
    • Strengthening the nervous system
    • Wellness
    • Protecting against cancer
