You may have heard about a process that takes place in the body called "methylation." Somewhere in there, you may have perceived that this is an important process that needs quite a bit of support and proper nutrition in order to maintain proper function in the body. While that is correct, exactly what is the process of methylation? Why is it important? Could it make a difference in your life to learn about it and to even do genetic testing to learn about any possible interruptions to optimal methylation in your body? It is very likely that learning more about this important and far reaching process could have a profound impact on your health and on your longevity!

- Increased amounts of ammonia in the body due to problems with the BH4 pathway. Ammonia can affect the health of your entire body. Learn how to correct this imbalance.
- Deficiencies in your methylation can result in increased amounts of peroxynitrite and superoxide.
- Decreased production of nitric oxide in your body, which is important for healthy circulation and cardiovascular health?
