Plasmalogens: Healthy Brain Aging and More

Plasmalogen levels in the brain are key to brain health. Low plasmalogen is linked to Alzheimer’s and ME/CFS. Healthy ways to boost your levels.

Prions: Genetic mutations that increase prion disease risk

Prions are able to infect, causing the normal protein around them to also misfold. These misfolded proteins aggregate to cause neurogenerative disease. Susceptibility to prion diseases depends in part on your genes.

Vitamin B6: Genetics, Absorption, and Deficiency

Vitamin B6 is an important co-factor in hundreds of different enzymatic reactions. Low levels of B6 are linked to an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. B6 is also essential for reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.

Dopamine SNPs: Addiction, Mood, ADHD, and Schizophrenia

Dopamine is a powerful player in our cognitive function – impacting mood, movement, and motivation. Genetic variants in the dopamine receptors influence addiction, ADHD, neurological diseases, depression, psychosis, and aggression.

BDNF: cognition, stress resilience, introversion, and mood

Low levels of BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor) are linked to introversion, stress resilience, cognition, and depression levels. Discover ways to increase your BDNF levels and mitigate the problems associated with the BDNF gene variants. (Member’s article)
