April 2, 2018 - Methylation Matters to Heart Health!

Methylation Matters to Heart Health!

April 2, 2018 Puzzle Piece

We had our annual Homecoming in February and a Stem Cell Seminar in March.  Each time, Methylation was a huge topic.   You cannot talk of the body’s own stem cells, health, wellness, mitochondrial function or dis-ease without talking of the many genetic SNPs and methylation.


 Methylation or the faulty process thereof can be a missing link in all your complicated patients.  Dr Harris has developed a test kit and specific nutrition to help solve the many problems that genetic SNPs precipitate.  There are large numbers of SNPs that are associated with methylation.  These were discussed in the last two seminars in detail with much more to come.
Your body needs B vitamins for various health reasons, including your heart. OHS has specific single nutrients and the naturally methylated, whole food, predigested B vitamin complex.  Along with many other functions these nutrients are important to reduce your risk of heart failure, stroke and heart disease.
If you are looking at B Complex and the research results, you will find very mixed results and even arguments as to whether or not that statement is true. The explanation is simple: the vitamin sources matter and those vitamins need to undergo a process called methylation in advance or they may make you worse.
Methylation is a chemical process that involves moving atoms around to trigger actions in your body, like metabolism or producing life-sustaining chemicals like melatonin. Un-methylated or poorly methylated B vitamins are harder for your body to utilize.  If they are not pre-methylated the body must perform the many steps of the methylation process itself before the vitamins are useful.
Many people have genetic defects in their methylation process. Therefore, life protecting and health promoting function can turn into malfunction and dysfunction if there is inadequate methylation of the B vitamins given.  Dr Harris did an one and a half hour long presentation on these processes in the February Homecoming Seminar, which is now available through our office at 480-964-5198.  He is also going to present day-and-a-half seminar beginning in the next couple of months.
As stated, methylation is one of the most essential metabolic functions. Case histories and scientific articles have demonstrated if this process is interrupted from environmental conditions, such as toxic metals, organophosphates, infectious agents, and a wide variety of environmental toxins. Methylation also degrades with age and is associated with a large variety of age-related disorders.
Methylation occurs billions of times each second in your body in every cell. If it does not, you die in a very short time. If there is insufficient methylation, you develop diseases related to problem areas. So, it depends on the quality of the B vitamins.  If they are properly methylated or if the patients tested, can methylate the vitamins used, in any study there are great favorable results. Below is a simplified list that some of the B’s are used for and where in the body they are utilized.  To repeat, that is, if properly methylated in advance our if our bodies can methylate them through all of the proper steps, health and wellness is greatly enhanced.

  • Vitamin B1 is used for proper heart and nerve function, along with cardiovascular health.
  • Vitamin B2 keeps energy levels up and blood cell health.
  • Vitamin B3 regulates cholesterol levels and reduces cardiovascular disease risk.
  • Vitamin B5 helps with cardiovascular health, wound healing, reducing bad cholesterol, and manufacturing red blood cells.
  • Vitamin B6 helps with energy levels, movement, blood flow, and creating antibodies.
  • Vitamin B7 helps with cardiovascular health, muscle and tissue repair and building.
  • Vitamin B9 (Folate) helps protect your heart by helping reduce your risk of heart disease. It keeps homocysteine levels in check, which among other things, means no unwanted blood clots.
  • Vitamin B12 plays a role in heart and cardiovascular health, energy levels, and your nervous system.
Bearing all this in mind, it’s why I’ve partnered with OHS to formulate Opti-Methyl B. It’s a therapeutic dose of high potency, premethylated, whole food B vitamins, and can be exactly what your body needs to combat stress caused by pollution, environmental and internal toxins, daily life stress, and so on. These predigested methyl groups can be easily utilized throughout your entire body.
Most likely, over 90% of our patients could benefit from proper B supplementation daily.  I certainly don’t miss a day.  It helps to accomplish all the functions listed above, including improved total body methylation activities.  Improve your body’s ability to methylate and improve cellular function. The need and dosages increase during times of high stress.  Also test for Opti-Adrenal, Opti Mito, and Opti-Brain.
This is a HUGE TOPIC that Dr. Harris will teach in depth, across the country!

Yours in Health and Wellness,
