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. โœ…

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. ๐Ÿง 

Histamine intolerance is a toxic response by the body resulting from an imbalance between accumulated histamine and the capacity to break it down. โŒ 
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. ๐Ÿคง

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. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ The first part of the methylation cycle is about making SAMe - the master methyl donor - to help support this vital biochemistry.

If you donโ€™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... ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

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. โŒ

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 โ€˜low and slowโ€™ when tuning your methylation engine!

Dopamine is a powerful neurotransmitter sometimes called the 'feel good' neurotransmitter. ๐Ÿ˜Š It is not only involved in pleasure but also in reward (motivation) and in motion. ๐Ÿ†
Some genes can cause an imbalance in dopamine levels and this can lead to an array of symptoms like a lack of motivation, fatigue or insomnia and addictions & cravings. ๐Ÿ˜•
At Lifecode Gx, we test for genes implicated in dopamine synthesis as part of our Nervous System report!

Did you know that your genes can have a big impact on how much friendly bacteria you have in your gut? ๐Ÿค”

The FUT2ย Fucosyltransferase 2 gene is really under-stated. It is reported in the context of methylation due to its vitamin B12 impact, but it has so many other fascinating effects! 
FUT2 SNPs can determine if you are a Secretor or a Non-Secretor, both of which have pros and cons. โŒ Non-Secretors are resistant to some viruses such as the Norwalk (cruise ship) virus and bacterias, such as H. pylori. They have the benefit of better vitamin B12 levels, but have a higher risk of celiac, and other autoimmune diseases. โœ… Secretors on the other hand are likely to benefit from more bifido bacteria - the friendly ones - in the microbiome, and in breast milk which, in turn feeds the friendly bacteria in babies microbiome. ๐Ÿ‘ถ

While only being predispositions, genes and SNPs directly influence our health. Get tested now with us for the FUT2 gene! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ Find out more at our Nutrigenomics In Practice 101 Seminar on January 19th!๐Ÿ”œ Book here: https://www.lifecodegx.com/events/2018/01/19/nutrigenomics-in-practice-101

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. ๐Ÿ‘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. ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ“
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.
For this new year, get your โ€œdetoxโ€ genes tested! ๐Ÿ‘

REPOST FROM @naduraclinics: After six months of hard work we are excited to officially launch our Athlete DNA Testing by Nadura For Amateur & Elite Level Athletes At Nadura Functional Sports Performance Nutrition Clinics Ireland.

LifecodeGX Labs London seen Nadura Functional Sports Performance Nutrition Clinicโ€™s as the perfect partner to co-design of our โ€˜athleteโ€™ DNA test. We wanted to collaborate with professionals who had proven experience in both functional testing and functional sports performance nutrition with elite level athletes.

Leeโ€™s science & evidenced based functional approach is a perfect fit with LifecodeGXโ€™ philosophy. We know that he already gets great results through functional performance nutrition and laboratory testing and the addition of DNA analysis will enable Nadura to take personalised nutrition to a new level providing athletes of all levels with a winning formula โ€“ Emma Beswick Director Lifecode GX ๐Ÿƒ

A genetic test analyses the DNA of a person; more specifically genes and their variants. ๐Ÿ”ฌ 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. ๐Ÿ’Š

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. โŒ
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. ๐Ÿ˜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.

@Regranned from @lifecodegx -  The LCT gene controls levels of an enzyme called lactase which is needed to digest the sugar, lactose, found in milk. ๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ
Normally the LCT gene is active for the first few years of a person's life, after which the level of lactase
decreases along with the ability to digest large quantities of milk. However, in some populations, particularly
Caucasians, a genetic variance that promotes lactase production is more common than the 'wild' type, enabling those individuals to continue to digest milk throughout their life.
The variant that determines lactase persistence is actually located on a different gene - MCM6, on a region of
the genome that acts as an on/off switch for the LCT gene.

Oestrogen is one of the two major female steroidal sex hormones - the other being progesterone.
The main role of oestrogen in the body is to increase the growth and production of cells. Abnormal oestrogen levels (too high or too low) can have a number of negative effects on health and wellbeing. This can be caused by genetics. 
At Lifecode Gx, we test for genes implicated in oestrogen levels as part of our Oestrogen report.
