What is the Genetic Methylation Report (30x)?

Unlock Your Genetic Blueprint for Optimal Health
The Genetic Methylation Report (30x) provides in-depth insights into your body’s methylation processes, a critical function affecting DNA synthesis, gene expression, detoxification, and more. This report analyzes key genes like MTHFR, COMT, MTR, and MTRR, offering a comprehensive understanding of your methylation propensity and personalized health recommendations.

Did you know… over 50% of the population is affected by genetic variants in the methylation pathway.

What is Methylation?

Methylation is a crucial process happening in every cell of your body, affecting DNA synthesis, gene expression, detoxification, and neurotransmitter production. Problems with methylation can lead to health issues like heart disease, mental health challenges, and autoimmune diseases.

By identifying genetic tendencies towards methylation issues, we can create a personalized health plan to maintain overall health and reduce the risk of long-term illnesses. Key genes like MTHFR and COMT influence how well your body can methylate, impacting your ability to process nutrients like folate and vitamin B12.

Understanding your methylation capacity helps us recommend lifestyle changes, diet adjustments, and supplements to support optimal health. This includes ensuring you get enough methyl-donating nutrients, managing stress, and making healthy lifestyle choices to keep your methylation in balance.

Explain this Image:

Here is a simple visual representation of the methylation process:

  1. DNA (Black Line): The methylation process acts on DNA.
  2. Enzymes (White Circles): Key enzymes involved in the methylation process.
    • MTHFR: Converts folate (vitamin B9) to its active form.
    • COMT: Breaks down catecholamines, affecting neurotransmitter balance.
    • MTR: Converts homocysteine to methionine, involved in detoxification.
    • MTRR: Regenerates active vitamin B12.
  3. Processes (Text Boxes): Key steps in the methylation process.
    • Folate (vitamin B9) conversion.
    • Vitamin B12 utilization.
    • Homocysteine conversion.
    • Detoxification.

What does MTHFR, COMT, MTR, and MTRR mean?

MTHFR

Initiator of methylation

The purpose of the MTHFR gene is to encode for the MTHFR enzyme which is the driver of the production of folate. Variants in the genes involved in methylation can impact the development of chronic disease. Nutrition intervention supports methylation and promotion of optimal health.

COMT

Restoring Hormone Balance

By metabolizing stress hormones and neutrotransmitters, the COMT gene is directly responsible for bringing your heartbeat down to normal levels and restoring a sense of balance both to your physiological and your psychological self.

MTR

Amino Acid Balance

The MTR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methionine synthase which plays a role in processing amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Methionine synthase converts homocysteine to methionine using methylated vitamin B12. Inflammation and elevated homocysteine levels can increase the risk of CVD.

MTRR

Protein Processing

The MTRR gene codes for the important enzyme, methionine synthase reductase (MSR) which is required for the proper function of methionine synthase (see MTR). Both genes act together to convert homocysteine to methionine. Variants can be involved with the development of cancers, Parkinson’s disease, depression, hypertension and many others.

“After undergoing genetic testing, I discovered that I have a higher risk for insulin resistance and a predisposition for lower Vitamin D levels. Armed with this knowledge, I made significant changes to my lifestyle. I started incorporating more physical activity into my daily routine and adjusted my diet to include foods rich in Vitamin D. Additionally, I began regular check-ups with a nutritionist to tailor my diet to my genetic profile. These changes have not only helped me maintain better blood sugar levels but also boosted my overall energy and well-being. Genetic testing has truly been a game-changer for my health!” – Dimetri G, 45
