We offer genetic tests that are critical for determining cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions.
MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase)
Mutations in this enzyme can affect the metabolism of homocysteine—causing accumulation—and therefore, impair methylation. Methylation is a biochemical process that is involved in numerous functions including cellular repair, energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter production, and immunity, among others. MTHFR mutations have been linked to increased risk for cardiovascular disease, blood vessel damage, blood clots (thrombosis), stroke, and degenerative aging.
An innovative approach to managing the aging process.
An individual’s chronological age and cellular health may be very different, and SpectraCell’s Telomere Test is one way to evaluate the rate of cellular turnover, and the effectiveness of anti-aging therapy. Age-adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess the correlations between age, morbidity, mortality and disease risk.
