πŸŒƒ Having trouble falling asleep?
β€’
πŸ”¬ This condition may come from your genes! Indeed, your body clock is governed by a group of β€˜clock genes’ including three key genes: CLOCK, PER and MTNR. These genes play a major role in orchestrating your body’s circadian rhythm.
β€’
😰 Improper signalling due to environmental or genetic variation can cause disrupted or altered sleep patterns.
β€’
πŸ’« At Lifecode Gx, we test for these genes as part of our Sleep report.

It’s Spring and we’re finally starting to feel it! 🀩

However, for many people, Spring also comes with hay fever ... which is caused by an intolerance of histamine levels. 🀧

Histamine is a biological amine that is synthesised from the amino acid histidine by L-histidine decarboxylase (HDC). It has many important and diverse biological functions such as protecting against infections (inflammatory response), regulating physiological functions in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter. βœ…

Once formed, histamine is either stored or rapidly inactivated by its primary degradative enzymes - diamine oxidase (DAO) in the gut and histamine-n- methyltransferase (HNMT) in the nervous system and lungs. 🧠

Histamine intolerance is a toxic response by the body resulting from an imbalance between accumulated histamine and the capacity to break it down. ❌ 
Impaired histamine degradation due to enzyme deficiency or inhibition can result in histamine toxicity and numerous symptoms that mimic an allergic reaction like skin itchiness and redness and gastro-intestinal tract & respiratory problems. 🀧

This season, get your histamine genes tested! www.lifecodegx.com/products

VDR encodes the nuclear hormone receptor for vitamin D3 (the active form of vitamin D in the body). Vitamin D3 is crucial for bone formation, modulation of the immune system, and cell proliferation and differentiation. β˜€οΈ
Variants in VDR lead to lower vitamin D levels causing low dopamine production. This is good for those with COMT variants since there will be less circulating dopamine in need of breaking down. Individuals with variants on COMT but normal VDR activity will have higher dopamine levels and low need for and tolerance of methyl donors and dopamine precursors, and have the greatest susceptibility to mood swings.

On a biochemical level methylation is the addition of a methyl group - CH3 - to a substance.
This happens millions of times a second in every cell of the body. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ The first part of the methylation cycle is about making SAMe - the master methyl donor - to help support this vital biochemistry.

If you don’t make enough SAMe to supply methyl groups - you might be under-methylated. 
Symptoms might include fatigue, fertility issues, high homocysteine, cardio vascular damage and low moods - to name a few... πŸ˜₯

If you are using up a lot of SAMe - for example, due to high histamine, inflammation, infection or intense exercise - your methyl levels might be depleted. ❌

Genetic variants on MTHFR, MTRR, BHMT and PEMT (and others), and depletion of B vitamins, magnesium and zinc can also lead to hypo-methylation.

However, you can also have too much of a good thing, and over-methylation can contribute to anxiety, feeling stressed and wired, due to excess of excitatory neurotransmitters, such as dopamine. This can happen if you take too many B vitamins, particularly the methylated - or active - forms, too soon without giving your body time to adjust.

Remember the mantra β€˜low and slow’ when tuning your methylation engine!

In this period of holidays, we expose our body to a lot more food toxins than usually.
This can lead to many symptoms such as gastro-intestinal tract problems. πŸ‘Ž

Make sure you include foods like grapes, berries, citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, collards, kale, Brussels sprouts) to support detoxification. πŸ‡πŸ“
Detoxification occurs predominantly (although not solely) in the liver in two major phases: Phase I Reactions and Phase II Conjugation, and a less well-known third phase: Phase III Antiporter Activity.

A genetic test analyses the DNA of a person; more specifically genes and their variants. πŸ”¬ Genes are sequences of nucleotides and sometimes, a change occurs in a base pair: this a called a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). A SNP can have a biological effect (negative or positive) and can be linked to a specific disease or condition. #discoverYourself #meetYourGenome #genetics #genomics #nutrigenomics #DNA #dnatest #medicine #health #optimumhealth #GP #doctor #nutrition #nutritionist #nutritionaltherapist #dietician #research #humanhealth

Indeed, some genes are involved in drug response and some people can be fast or slow metabolisers of a specific drug. For instance, a SNP on the CYP2C19 gene can affect the metabolism of anti-depressants and anticoagulants. πŸ’Š

Let’s talk about Candida since it should not be a sensitive topic.

What is it❓ 
Candida albicans is an opportunistic pathogenic yeast that is a common member of the human gut flora. Candida can become pathogenic in certain conditions.

What are the causes❓ 
The most common causes of Candida overgrowth are antibiotics, a change in oral contraceptives, a long period of stress, pregnancy and a diet high in sugar. 
The yeast takes avantage of a disruption in the balance of microorganisms in the gut or vagina. 
How does it work❓ 
Candida forms complex, dynamic, three-dimensional structures called biofilms on the surfaces that they colonize, which makes it harder to eradicate.

What are the consequencesβ“πŸ˜° Candida has a lot of different effects on the human body. 
First of all, in the case of vaginal yeast infection, it causes itchiness, burning and pain when urinating. 
Furthermore, it is a primary cause of anxiety and depression. Indeed, the toxins released by Candida can impair neurotransmitter production and/or function. The toxins can cause also cause an imbalance in GABA, glutamate and histamine balance. 
Candida can also lead to deficiencies in a wide array of nutrients. 
Finally, Candida is an inhibitor of alcohol degradation (produces
acetaldehyde), which can lead to alcohol flush.

How can you prevent Candida overgrowth❓
Probiotics are the way to go (found in yogurts or as supplements)! They provide your body β€œfriendly” bacteria. Try to reduce sugars and avoid antibiotics when not necessary.

GABA, gamma-aminobutyric acid, is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain: at a synapse level, GABA decreases the possibility of a neuron to fire an action potential. ❌
It is critical for relaxation, improves memory & mood, relieves anxiety, promotes sleep, moderates blood pressure/ flow and influences catecholamine release, and cytokine and hormone production. πŸ˜ƒ
The GABRA2 gene encodes a subunit of GABA-A receptors. These are ligand-gated chloride channels activated by GABA. The receptor's subunit GABRA2 transports Cl- ions into the membrane, which causes its hyper-polarisation, leading to inhibitory actions. GABRA2 variants can lead to altered GABA action.

Carotenoids are pigments found in yellow, orange and red foods, including pumpkin. Your body converts three carotenoids, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin, into vitamin A. These natural chemicals, along with other pumpkin carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin, are also antioxidants, compounds that help protect you from free radicals. Your body makes free radicals as byproducts of metabolism, toxin breakdown and other processes. They can injure your cells by damaging cellular membranes and DNA, eventually raising your risk of chronic illness. A diet high in carotenoids may help prevent cardiovascular disease, certain cancers and some eye problems, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Making pumpkin a regular part of your diet will increase your intake of healthy carotenoids.
