Dirty Genes Protocol

Do your genes really get ‘dirty’? The quick answer is no but discover the meaning of this concept and how to better relate it to your genes.

FTO is more than just an obesity gene

FTO and m6A methylation: From COVID to Cancer to Obesity

The initial research on the FTO gene was all about how it relates to increased BMI and increased fat cell creation. More recently, researchers discovered that FTO is an m6A eraser that removes methyl groups from mRNA. This discovery has opened up huge avenues of research on topics from cancer to immune response to heart disease.

CBS Gene Variants and Low Sulfur Diet

Some clinicians recommend a low sulfur diet for people with CBS mutations. Find out what the research shows – and why that recommendation is not backed up. (Member’s article)

ABCC11 Gene: Ear wax and no body odor

The ABCC11 gene determines both the type of earwax a person has and their armpit odor. Learn more about how a change in a single spot in the DNA of this gene can cause the gene not to function.

Depression genes

Depression, genetics, and mitochondrial function

How does mitochondrial dysfunction relate to major depressive disorder? Learn about the causes of mitochondrial dysfunction as well as genetic variants that link the risk of depression to the mitochondria.

Is IBS genetic? Targeted solutions, based on your genes

There are multiple causes of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and genetics can definitely play a role in IBS symptoms. Pinpointing your genetic cause may help you to figure out the right solution for you. (Member’s article)

23 and Me vs Ancestry: Accuracy

Wondering whether to go with an Ancestry.com or 23andMe kit? This is a quick, no-nonsense comparison between the two.

Asprin, Heart Disease Prevention, and Genetics

While large population studies show the benefits of aspirin, research shows that these heart-health benefits are dependent on your genes. Find out more and check your genetic raw data.

tyramine

Tyramine Intolerance: Metabolism of tyramine

Tyramine intolerance happens when you can’t break it down. Too much tyramine can lead to a hypertensive crisis. Learn more and check your genetic raw data for results.

Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS3): Heart health, blood pressure, and healthy aging

Nitric Oxide Synthase is an important signaling molecule in the endothelium of our blood vessels. It has roles in the regulation of blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, brain health, and more. Genetic variants in nitric oxide genes are important for a healthy heart. Find out how your genes could play a part in the interactions with cardiovascular disease risk and blood pressure.

Melatonin: Key to Health and Longevity

More than just a sleep hormone, melatonin is at the heart of many health topics. Your genetic variants play a big role in the production of melatonin. Learn how your lifestyle and diet interact with your melatonin-related genes.

Alzheimer’s Gene: Find your APOE type from your genetic raw data

The APOE gene variants are linked with the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Find out whether you carry the APOE risk type for Alzheimer’s – and learn what research shows about supplements and lifestyle changes to prevent this disease.
