Small Gene Variations from Misspellings are Frequent and May Have a Big Effect on Metabolic Processes
A balanced diet of B12, folate and choline is critical to ensuring the benefits of methylation (known as single carbon metabolism).
The human recombinant Intrinsic factor is extracted by sophisticated pharmaceutical grade purification methods.
The plant has become the factory for Intrinsic Factor.
No! But it is human-derived because it is produced from the gene that makes human Intrinsic Factor.
The gene for a human protein is inserted into the genetic code of other cells that can produce a protein that is identical to what is made in the body.
Intrinsic Factor (IF) is a protein made in the stomach that is essential for ensuring the natural absorption of vitamin B12.
In this episode, Dr Jonathan Bortz discusses his journey into developing pharmaceuticals and supplements, and how it brought him to look at choline in a different light. He talks about the story of choline as a “one carbon metabolism,” as well as the various uses of choline in the body, including its role in methylation, genetics, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
