Epigenetics, methylation, nutrigenomics
Epigenetics can influence the gene expression (turning genes off and on) without making changes to DNA sequence. Epigenetics is influenced by environmental, lifestyle, drugs, detox, sleep, hormone balance, neurotransmitters balance, weight balance, emotional balance, exercise and supplementation. Examples of body epigenetic processes are methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation. DNA methylation is one of the most studied epigenetic modification. DNA methylation means binding a methyl group to certain location of DNA.
Methylation has an important role in: immunity, energy, detox, neurotransmitters function, hormone balance. Conditions affected by methylation are cancer, stroke, heart disease, MS, depression, RA, anemia, preeclamsia, anxiety, insomnia, Parkinson, Chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune. First step is assessing methylation and the providing the necessary support protocol.
Nutrigenetics defined how genes affect individual responses to food. Nutrigenomics how food affects gene expression help identify epigenetic biomarkers. By doing certain nutrigenomics testing we are able to determine the best treatment that support your genetic blueprint that includes: diet, supplements, and lifestyle.
Gene Polymorphism of MTHFR, CBS, MTRR affect vitamins B absorption. Low level of B6 associated with cardio inflammation, artherosclerosis, increased CRP, cognitive decline. Polymorphism in MTHFR increases folate requirement.
How is your methylation affecting your cardio risk?
How is your methylation affecting birth defects?
How is methylation affecting mental health?
How is methylation affecting homocysteine level?
How are enviromental toxin affect your methylation?
How is your methylation affecting autoimmunity?
What to avoid when MTHFR defect?
- overmethylated or undermethylated to avoid folic acid
- high dose of B12 can lead to lithium depleation
