The GX Sciences Detoxification Panel helps providers analyze and identify underlying contributing factors to weight loss problems, gut complications, auto-immune issues, fatigue, and detoxification issues. This panel currently focuses on specific gene variants (SNPs) that can play a significant role in a patient’s ability to control or resolve complications related to “detox” struggles. Genetic findings and interpretations through the GX Sciences analysis and reporting system can help determine:
- Inadequate glutathione absorption, metabolism & function
- Poor defense against free radicals
- Insufficiencies in the protective properties of antioxidants
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.
