Episode Info

Episode Info: The word ‘methylation’ has become somewhat of a buzz word in functional medicine. We’ve mentioned it several times throughout many episodes of The Lab Report – hard to avoid since it’s involved in just about every biological process. In this episode, we finally hit the topic head on and dive into the methylation cycle itself. Although the biochemistry can be intimidating, listen as we simplify and demystify the steps involved and why each is important. You may find it helpful to refer to a Methylation Pathway Chart. “It’s not the reaction that is significant, but how often the reaction is used in the body.” – Michael Chapman, ND Today on The Lab Report: 2:00 What is methylation and why is it clinically important 5:30 Jumping into the biochemistry – metaphors to the rescue! 11:35 Homocysteine 14:00 The main pathway versus back up pathway 19:33 Transsulfuration 22:30 Multi-omics and the methylation cycle 27:50 Question of the Day “What does it mean if homocysteine is low?” Additional Resources: Genova's Methylation Panel Dr. Michael Chapman's Methylation Webinar   Subscribe, Rate, & Review The Lab Report Thanks for tuning in to this week’s episode of The Lab Report, presented by Genova Diagnostics, with your hosts Michael Chapman and Patti Devers.
