Neurotransmitter & Methylation Genetic Test

Neurotransmitter Synthesis &Folate Methylation Genetic Testing

Folate (or the synthetic form, folic acid) is intricately involved in the production of key neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) - dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. Folate also affects the body’s ability to recycle a normally occurring protein, homocysteine, from the blood. In order to get into the brain where it can be used to make neurotransmitters and reduce homocysteine levels, folate must be converted into L-methylfolate. Up to 1/3 of the U.S. population may have a genetic defect that prevents the complete conversion of folate from taking place. Another third of Americans can make the conversion but to a less than optimal degree. Problems that have been linked to inadequate folate metabolism include cardiovascular illnesses, neurodegenerative diseases, fibromyalgia and psychiatric disorders including ADD, depression and autism. COMT genetic function affects the ability to maintain healthy levels of the catecholamine neurotransmitters.
The only way to know whether your body can make this enzymatic conversion ensuring proper methylation is to get tested. This profile tests for the COMT and MTHFR genes.
Suboptimal genetic function may contribute to:
• High catecholamine
• Fibromyalgia
• Fatigue
• Autism
• High blood pressure
• Arteriosclerosis
• Cardiovascular issues
• Neurodegenerative disorders
