Neurotransmitter Panel

For our Neurotransmitter Panel, 11+ gene variants have been chosen by our experts to be analyzed for SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms).

The issues that accompany an imbalance of inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters can be exacerbated by specific genetic SNPs in neurotransmitter markers like COMT, MAO-A, MAO-B, GAB 12. Drugs (recreational and/or prescription), neurotoxins, stress, alcohol, poor diet, and caffeine can also fuel symptoms by encouraging these SNPs to further express themselves.
Safe Harbour Wellness’s neurotransmitter genetic testing shares what SNPs you have within the neurotransmitter markers. This information allows Safe Harbour Wellness to recommend nutritional support specific to those genetic shortcomings. Ultimately, neurotransmitter genetic testing lets doctors and their patients understand their underlying issues with neurotransmitter function and implement personalized solutions.

Billions of neurons exist in the brain and they all need to work appropriately. These cells share information with other nerve cells through electrical impulses, allowing for thought and communication throughout the body. Neurotransmitters inform many necessary processes like getting your heart to beat, your stomach to digest, or your lungs to breathe. While all neurotransmitters transmit information, they do not all do so in the same manner or with the same intention. Serotonin & Dopamine - Technically the Only Two Things You Enjoy

There are “inhibitory” neurotransmitters and “excitatory” neurotransmitters. Inhibitory neurotransmitters work to counterbalance excitatory neurotransmitters and are considered the “feel-good” neurotransmitters. GABA, serotonin, and dopamine are among a few. They allow the brain to calm and feel balanced. Excitatory neurotransmitters are responsible for motivation, focus, anxiety, stress, and more. Norepinephrine and epinephrine (noradrenaline and adrenaline) are classified as excitatory, stimulating the brain.

It’s not uncommon for the body to run out of inhibitory neurotransmitters when one has overactive excitatory neurotransmitters. When inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters are not working together and are imbalanced, moods like anger, agitation, anxiety, depression can occur. Change in weight, sleep issues, and poor concentration can also be a byproduct. An estimated 86% of Americans have an imbalance between inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters.
Depression is not genetically inherited, but the potential for depression in each person is epigenetically modified by environment, stress, genetic makeup and nutritional health. In the nutrigenomic world, the depression risk factors are associated with two genes that are associated with a higher risk of developing depression. These genes do not guarantee any person will get depression. The specific genes are the MAO and COMT. Both of these genes affect the speed at which neurotransmitters are broken down and cleared from the post synaptic receptor. In both MAO A and B homozygous and COMT homozygous, the mono-amines are cleared from the receptor site in a sluggish manner. This makes the post synaptic neuron less adaptable to changes in neurotransmitter status and leads to a higher likelihood of depression and/or anxiety in that patient. By assisting these mutations with methyl donors (ie taurine, methionine, choline, inositol), the practitioner can speed the clearance of the neurotransmitters and lessen the likelihood of developing depression.*

SNP testing allows patients and their doctors to gain a better understanding of what’s happening on a genetic and cellular-level. Completed in 2012, The 1000 Genomes Project and its’ accompanying research, allowed the scientific community to identify the physical and functional standpoint of specific gene changes. This project and continuing research has helped scientists and doctors determine which SNPs (mutations) are harmful and which are not a concern to your health. When a patient has SNP testing, doctors can focus their attention on genetic mutations that can lead to poor health and offer the patient guidance in the prevention of health problems or create a protocol to help those with current health problems.* * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Perfect marriage of Innovative DNA Testing and Proprietary Interpretation Software.

Our Nutrigenomics tests, are much more than your typical laboratory’s DNA Genomic Test. In fact, our system is the perfect marriage between forward thinking Interpretation Software and Innovative Nutrigenomics Testing. In addition to being the most comprehensive DNA Nutrigenomics test available, the real magic lies within our proprietary SNP Interpretation software.

Our innovative software, takes the guesswork out of the physician’s results interpretation, as it links any identified SNPs to the recommended nutritional support that lends the greatest potential for the most optimal patient outcome. This software provides a detail and a summary, showing highly recommended nutritional support therapeutics, the nutritional or pharmacological support best left to the provider’s discretion, lifestyle recommendations, as well as any suggested additional laboratory testing one should consider.

This saves the provider valuable time that could be better spent on patient care, rather than looking up specific SNPs and the associated supplemental support. Additionally, the concise format of our report provides an easy to understand outline to better ensure alignment between patient and provider.
