Methylation – The Missing Link in Personalised Nutrition

By Clinical Nutrition 2 years ago 42539 Views

Perhaps one of the most critical processes that underpins our health and wellbeing is methylation. This relatively simple chemical process, occurs billions of times every second, and is important for the proper functioning of virtually all body systems. It's a process that is called upon a lot when we are under stress, so can potentially become depleted. The research into methylation and related genetic mutations that may predispose people to an array of symptoms and chronic disease, has exploded in the last 10 years.

A good understanding of methylation is just as important for health practitioners, who want to provide a personalised plan for their clients, as it is for each one of us, enabling us to take charge of our own health and wellbeing. Knowing how to support this process with diet and lifestyle is key to achieving optimum health and hopefully preventing disease.

Vitamin C Powder - Top Tips From Our Nutrition Team

Vitamin C has multiple benefits for our body, from supporting healthy skin and energy production to promoting a strong immune system. Whilst many foods contain vitamin C, it is increasingly evident, given the trials and tribulations of modern day living, that we are not getting nearly enough to meet individual needs. Stress is around every corner and we are subjected to many environmental toxins and microbes in the home and outdoors. The food we eat is often depleted in nutrients and the state of our health is declining constantly with chronic disease. Therefore our nutrient demands are ever increasing, and this includes the need for vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient and is therefore not stored in the body, so the body needs a constant supply. With the growing demands of the modern world we are much more prone to having a lower vitamin C status. Some of the many reasons for this are:

Given the above, one thing is clear; we need to put back what is missing to make up for the deficit.

While there are different vitamin C products, a favourite amongst practitioners and our Nutrition Team is Vitamin C Powder.
