Detoxification Nutrigenomic Panel

Seven key genes have been chosen by our experts to be analyzed for SNPs in the area of Detoxification.

Additional Polymorphism Information:

AHCY (aka homocysteine aldolase) is the enzyme responsible for converting S-adenosyl homocysteine to homocysteine. Its’ cofactor is NAD+. The result of this mutation is a low homocysteine and therefore low down pathway substrates including Cystathione, NAC, and ultimately glutathione. This causes the methionine recirculation pathway to be insufficient and that SAMe or L-Methionine would be helpful in most situations.

With an AHCY homozygous polymorphism, It is recommend adding SAMe (L-methionine), mitochondria support to increase the production of NAD+ (Mitocell PQQ by Neurobiologix) and consider utilizing glutathione in a topical, oral or IV fashion.
