Metabolism of homocysteine, folate, methylation and monoamine in depression. Theodore Bottiglieri et al. British Medical Jl
This is an old study. He has been cited more than 500 times. This is why. took patients and severely depressed (hospitalized) controls:
1. examined the methylation indicators in serum, red blood cells and even cerebrospinal fluid;
2. documented an inverse relationship between serum homocysteine and all other indicators for methylation products, INCLUDING the metabolite indicators of the metabolism of the monoamine neurotransmitters.
In other words, there was strong evidence that failure of methylation metabolism was related to depression.
