Nervous System

£249.00

This nutrigenomics test is for pyschological and mental wellbeing. It looks at genes that impact function and balance of key neurotransmitters including serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, noradrenalin, adrenaline, glutamate, GABA, and the endocannabinoid system.

Category:
  • Experiencing mood imbalances, depression, addictive behaviours
  • Experiencing attention deficit and obessive compulsive disorders
  • Experienicng motor contril disruption and restlessness

The nervous system supports the transmission of messages around the mind and body, enabling an individual to respond to their environment. A neurotransmitter is a molecule that carries signals between neurons and across nerve junctions (synapses). Excitatory neurotransmitters increase the likelihood a neuron will fire a signal, while inhibitory neurotransmitters have the opposite effect. In order for us to interact effectively with our environment these must remain in balance.

Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalance can include: mood imbalances, depression, mania, attention deficit and obsessive compulsive disorders, addictive behaviours, motor control disruption, anger, aggression and restlessness.

It analyses gene variants that impact serotonin (contentment) and melatonin (sleep), dopamine (motivation), noradrenaline and adrenaline (fight or flight); glutamate (the major excitatory neurotransmitter); GABA (the major inhibitory neurotransmitter) which is critical for relaxation; and endocannabinoids (AEA/ anandamide) which regulate other neurotransmitters. The report provides detailed recommendations for nutritional support to alleviate symptoms and to optimise mental health.
