1. MTHFR is a gene that makes an enzyme called Methylene Tetrahydrofolate Reductase. Let’s just call it MTHFR. MTHFR is the enzyme that makes L-methylfolate, a critical type of folate your brain and body uses to serve several roles. In the brain, L-methylfolate is necessary to making dopamine and serotonin, two very important chemical messengers. Not having enough L-methylfolate can have cardiac implications as well by leading to raised homocysteine levels that increase cardiac risks. For women of child bearing age, problems with MTHFR have been linked to certain birth defects.
            2. Commonly available MTHFR genetic testing currently covers two polymorphisms that affect the function of the enzyme. GenEd adds an important third polymorphism that also tells how much of the enzyme is made.

            3. MTHFR has been linked with mental health, fetal development, cardiac health and cancer

            4. GenEd’s MTHFR panel is the most comprehensive on the market.

Addiction Education

Understanding addiction as the abuse of drugs has not helped us end the problem. If anything, after a century of using that definition, we have a worse problem than we did 100 years ago. But science is changing, and addiction is now seen as a primary illness that comes before the drugs. The neurobiology is known and there are many genetic predictors of important functions. GenEd’s Addiction Education Report with serve as a way for anyone interested to learn how addiction really works in the brain.

Understand the genetic underpinnings of addiction regardless of reward used.

Understand addiction and its types. There is no limit to recovery if we know what to look for. 

See how we can be more effective in our personal lives and social policy once we know the biology of addiction.
