Basic Methyl Detox | Cell Science Systems
Go beyond standard MTHFR genotyping
Standard MTHFR genotyping only evaluates folic acid metabolism. Scientific research reveals that a variety of genes are involved in maintaining methionine/homocysteine balance (methylation potential). Genetic polymorphisms in these important genes influence your methylation potential. Individual methylation is monitored using homocysteine levels. Important SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) are included to evaluate your ability to methylate toxins so they can more readily be removed from the body.
The Methyl Detox Profile expands on MTHFR genotyping, giving you a more complete picture of your body’s detoxification abilities. The Methyl Detox profile includes smart commentaries,detailing recommended nutrients based on your genetics.
Who may benefit from this test?
- Cardiovascular Diseases such as Hypertension, coronary artery disease, stroke 4-10
- Neurological Disorders such as depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine, insomnia 7, 10-17
- Metabolic Conditions such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, kidney diseases, reduced ability to metabolize medications, multiple chemical sensitivity 10, 18-21
- Musculoskeletal Disorders such as osteoporosis (in patients with Parkinson’s disease) 10, 22
- Eye Diseases such as macular degeneration 23, 24
- Cancer such as colorectal, breast
What is Tested
The MTHFR gene is essential in the folate metabolism pathway. If the MTHFR gene has no SNP, the body can produce sufficient levels of functioning MTHFR enzyme, which is important for many biochemical processes and pathways in the body to maintain optimal health. A mutation to the MTHFR gene will affect the activity of the resulting enzyme. 5, 6, 10, 26-29
MTR converts homocysteine to methionine using Vitamin B12. Mutations in this gene significantly impact homocysteine metabolism, which increases the risk for a number of chronic conditions.30
COMT is necessary for maintaining the proper balance of neurotransmitters by using SAMe obtained from methionine. Disruption in this pathway can result in various neurological problems.
COMT also plays an important role in a variety of disorders, including estrogen-induced cancers, Parkinson’s disease, depression, hypertension and many others.31-36
Homocysteine is an amino acid – a metabolic intermediate – that is involved in maintaining the methionine cycle. Elevated homocysteine levels are well known risk factors for chronic disease, particularly cardiovascular, diabetes and neurodegenerative
