Do you know much about methylation? You should! The methylation cycle is probably one of the most important metabolic pathways in your body.
Check it out. You can change the way you express your DNA, manage your inflammation, and reverse aging by learning more about this pathway. This cycle has historically been very confusing to both the general public and doctors so let’s break it down. I promise the next paragraph is not going to make your head explode.
By definition methylation is the process of a molecule bonding to a methyl group (a single carbon with 3 hydrogens attached). The methyl group changes the shape and function of that molecule and gives the molecule a new job. Are you still with me?
Coenzyme Q10 is a lipid-soluble substance that is naturally produced by all cells in the human body. In 1957 Drs. Crane and Morton isolated the molecule subsequently identified as CoQ10, and in the following year, its chemical structure was determined by Dr. Karl Folkers and associates at Merck.1 In the next decade international research identified two significant attributes of CoQ10: its critical role in the electron transport system, and powerful antioxidant properties. Coupled with the commercial production of CoQ10, and its availability over-the-counter, the ever expanding knowledge of physiologic & pathophysiologic processes has produced widespread interest, research, and usage of CoQ10.
