Methylation Genetics: Why Choline is Often the Missing Link

Methylation Genetics: Why Choline is Often the Missing Link

Live Webinar

Free live webinar presented by Dr Denise Furness, PhD, BSc(Hons), RNutr, Geneticist and Nutritionist – Sunshine Coast, Australia
 
As the major dietary source of methyl groups,
choline helps to drive methylation reactions that
support cognitive function, fetal neural development
and detoxification. Approximately 90% of Australians
and New Zealanders fall short of meeting adequate
dietary intakes. Plant-based diets, low estrogen
levels, and common polymorphisms in methylation
genes contribute to low choline status.
 
Learning Objectives
• Recognise the importance of choline in cognitive
function, pregnancy outcomes and liver health
• Learn when to consider supplemental choline by
asking the patient simple questions
• Learn how to select the right supplement and dosing
regimen for each individual
