1️⃣ Methylation is not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Simply taking methylated B vitamins may not be enough to address methylation issues.  Considering the role of various cofactors in optimizing methylation. Nutrients like methionine, cysteine, taurine, DHA, zinc, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, B6, betaine, and choline are all essential for supporting methylation. It's crucial to address all these aspects and provide your body with the complete package of nutrients it needs.


2️⃣ Support your methylation pathways with the right nutrients.

The key is to relieve the strain on your methylation pathways and provide optimal conditions for healthy methylation to occur. This includes focusing on essential aspects of health, such as gut health, digestion, supporting the microbiome, dealing with dysbiosis, and eliminating gut pathogens like Candida and parasites.

3️⃣ The connection between Candida overgrowth and methylation.

Candida produces a toxic byproduct called Acetylaldehyde, which inhibits a vital cycle in the methylation process known as Methionine Synthase. Reducing alcohol consumption is also crucial, as it produces Acetylaldehyde and adds extra pressure on methylation.

Remember, methylation is a delicate dance that requires a holistic and personalized approach.

So, if you suspect methylation issues or resonate with the symptoms we discussed in the podcast, consider working with a functional practitioner to determine the best course of action for your unique situation.

I hope these tips provide you with valuable insights into supporting your methylation for optimal hormone balance. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes where we delve deeper into other aspects of hormone health.
