Methylation - the addition of a methyl group (CH4 one carbon attached to three
hydrogens) to another molecule - is an essential and vital biochemical process
within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways
involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle
health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary
for methylation to occur normally.
Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of 5-MTHF (the active form of folate),
pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active B6), and methylcobalamin (active B12), than our
original Methyl-Guard. We have also added riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form
of vitamin B2) for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism and methylation.*
These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients the body uses to push forward
the process of methylation.
