Methylation is a vital metabolic process that happens in every cell and every organ of our bodyLife would not exist without it. These normal reactions occur billions of times every second in the body. It happens when one molecule passes a methyl group, which is a carbon atom, linked to three hydrogens (CH3)  to another molecule.  An example of this reaction is when one molecule passes a methyl group to another molecule to make things like creatine, carnitine, CoQ10, phosphatidylcholine, melatonin, and hundreds of other life giving substances.


Therefore, if there is a genetic SNP or deficiency of needed nutrition or supplementation, such as the Vitamin B family, the body malfunctions.  This can be the underlying cause of many diagnosed diseases according to current research and understanding.  If we can improve methylation, we improve function and our health and wellness.  It is our job as physicians that work with nature to improve function, rather than treat disease that was caused from dysfunction.

Methylation is a form of alkylation with a methyl group, rather than a larger carbon chain, replacing a hydrogen atom.  The Methylation Cycle is a biochemical pathway that allows normal function.  Methylation is a process of controlled transfer of this methyl group onto amino acids, proteins, enzymes, and DNA in every cell and tissue of the body.  This process helps regulate healing, cell energy, genetic expression of DNA, neurological function, liver detoxification, immunity, etc.

This process is one of the most essential metabolic functions of the body and is catalyzed by a variety of enzymes. Case histories and scientific articles have demonstrated this methylation process is responsive to environmental conditions, such as toxic metals, organophosphates, infectious agents, and a wide variety of environmental insults. Methylation degrades with age and is associated with a large variety of age-related disorders.   In practice, I test for and utilize the Opti- Enviro Detox and Opti-Metal Detox formulas in conjunction with Opti-Methyl-B if indicated.

The body and it methylation activities must constantly adapt to all toxic insults and life’s changes. The quality of life is highly dependent on the methylation process. Methylation is central to the biochemical basis of the neuropsychiatry of folate and B12 metabolism.

The biochemical basis of the interrelationship between folate and cobalamin is the maintenance of two functions, nucleic acid synthesis and the methylation reactions. Methylation is particularly important in the brain. Defective methylation processes can lead to a number of serious health conditions. A simple abnormality in the methylation pathway, compounded with further assaults from environmental and infectious agents (including Borrelia), can lead to a wide range of conditions including miscarriages, fertility and problems in pregnancy, allergies, digestion, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurotransmitter imbalances, cancer, diabetes, abnormal immune function, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple sclerosis (MS), cognitive dysfunction in patients with dementia, neurological and psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Down syndrome, autism/ spectrum disorders , neural tube defects, and chronic inflammation, etc.

Royal Lee would be elated that the new multiple patented processes of OHS allows for Non-GMO, organic, predigested, whole food nutrients to be used in each formulation.  Opti-Methyl-B contains all naturally methylated B vitamins that allow the methylation pathway to be at its best.  It is imperative we take this nutrition daily to allow for optimal function.  There are no synthetic processes used and this formula contains MUCH LARGER DOSAGES of these natural B’s than any whole food formula.  In fact, they rival synthetic B vitamins in dosages and price, yet they are not only whole food, but also pre-digested for further utilization.
