Dr. D'Adamo briefly mentioned it in the GenoType Diet when describing how experimental obesity rats that were given a soy diet (high in methionine) began to get leaner.

According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University:

"Methionine
a sulfur containing amino acid, required for protein synthesis and other vital metabolic processes. It can be obtained through the diet in protein or synthesized from homocysteine."

I'm not exactly sure what it does, but I do know that proper levels of folate and Vit b12 are necessary to change homocysteine (a bad thing that causes heart disease) to methionine (a good thing.)  And methionine is required in the synthesis of SAM (S-adenosylmethionine), which is necessary for methylation, and as I understand it, methylation is what allows genes to be turned on or enzymes to be activated.  It sounds very complicated to me, especially after 8:00 at night

From my understanding of the Genotype Diet, taking methionine should increase methylation, but what determines which genes would be methylated? If you take methionine while you strictly follow the Genotype diet would it enhance your ability to turn off the genes which are bad?

Nomad catalyst contains methionine.

This is the description of how it works in that product:

Quoted Text
Methionine: This essential amino acid (protein building block) is a 'methyl-donor.'. Dietary sources of methyl donors are critical for proper epigenetic gene repair. Most methyltransferase reactions use methionine as the source of methyl groups

I have some, I guess I should it a try. Little methionine never hurt anyone.

Yes mam, that's the mice I was referring to. But which genes would the diet be likely to silence I wonder?

Dr. Abraham Hoffer was actually aware of at least part of the ability of methionine in the 70s or 80s I believe it was because it's one of the supplements that he gave schizophrenics to help them get better- TMG as well. I remember specifically that he said some schizophrenics are "under-methylated while some are over-methylated." Now I know exactly what he means, the schizophrenics were over or under-expressing genes- probably hunter genes.

hmmm my two cents...I don't believe in such sickness...it's only a sort of no-good handling of clearsightened and clearvoyant people...of course with lacks created by longtime stress situations.... that's what I've observed ....also it was mentioned once by a certain Dr.Jakob Bsch, incl. his medium Anouk Claes.....   

Btw...years ago I visited Dr. Hoffer and thanx to him and his scripts,
treatment of so called *psychee's* ....isn't anymore my fear but a pleasure to see their improovements whithin days on BTD and orthomolecular medicine....

I want to turn off the gene that makes urine stink after eating asparagus.  Do you suppose taking methionine will help, or just turn it on better

Quark?  How is that different from yogurt, or from something like Chevrie?

"So what does taking methionine DUE?"

-Ahaha whew, who knew? I've worked too long in Customer Service, the other day someone called in and asked what the "Mooo-tay" button was for. I didn't have a clue what he was talking about until he said where the button was and I saw that it was the Mute button.
