All things Methylation

Introduction

Methylation is a term that is thrown around a lot in the functional medicine world. Heart disease, autism, Alzheimer’s and many other diseases have been linked to methylation problems. When most bloggers and functional doctors talk about methylation, they mean the process of the methylation cycle.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, or medical researcher, although I spent 3.5 years in pharmacy school so I’m game to go down the rabbit holes. ;-) This is my digest of all the methylation research that I have read over the past few years.

So, here’s what I’ve dug up, which is certainly not all-encompassing. I’ve added a handful of studies to illustrate specific points, but rest assured, there are many more studies to read. And do feel free to add your interpretations or pass along your research results.
