Methylation Panel

$415.00

A Personalized Approach to Healthy Aging

The Methylation Panel is an innovative test designed to offer insight into the critical biochemical methylation pathway. Methylation metabolites are measured in plasma, and genetic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are analyzed via buccal swab. The results are synthesized on a front-page Interpretation-at-a-Glance (IAAG) graphic for quick methylation status assessment. Within the report, results are shown in a methylation pathway graphic to provide a clear understanding of the biochemistry involved.

Why is Methylation important?

Methylation is needed to create DNA and RNA and regulate gene expression. It helps make creatine, which is needed for skeletal muscle contraction. Methylation is involved in basic energy production, fat metabolism, immune responses, vascular health, and cell membrane repair. It produces and metabolizes neurotransmitters to regulate mood. Methylation also works to neutralize toxins and hormones.

Methylation defects have been associated with many clinical conditions including, but not limited to cancer, autism, ADHD, congenital and neural tube defects, cognitive decline, depression, cardiovascular disease, and schizophrenia.3-11

Which patients can benefit from the Methylation Panel?

Because of its all-encompassing role in basic human physiology, the range of symptoms associated with methylation defects is broad. The Methylation Panel can offer insight in patients with:

  • questionable detoxification (patients who take hormone therapy, drink alcohol, or have toxin exposure)12-14
  • cancer risk7,15-17
  • cardiovascular disease (non-coronary atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary artery disease)10,18-20
  • psychiatric and mood disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression)5,7,21,22
  • neurologic disorders (Parkinson’s disease, cognitive decline)9,23-25
  • chronic fatigue26
