Genetic Test Kit (MTHFR Only)
It is now possible to address and resolve the root cause of major depressive disorder based on an understanding of its biochemical underpinnings especially with regards to its genetic cause, primarily what’s called MTHFR polymorphism. Generally and simply, this minor genetic defect prevents the production of the enzyme that breaks down folate into methylfolate, which is necessary for the normal production and balance of the neurotransmitters: serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This genetic deficit also prevents SAM-E and glutathione production and can make homocysteine high, which can exacerbate brain inflammation as a further aggravating factor on depression.
