What's measured

11 Critical markers that could affect your ability to mentally thrive

 
MTHFR Gene

The MTHFR gene is responsible for the production of a critical enzyme that converts folic acid to its active form called methylfolate. Connections between brain cells rely on neurotransmitters to get information from one brain cell to another. Neurotransmitters, like serotonin, require methylfolate for production. Depressed mood and other mental health conditions are often associated with specific genetic variants. After receiving your lab report, you can ask your doctor if you would benefit from taking L-methylfolate.

Why take the mental vitality DX at-home test?

Mental health involves psychological, emotional and social well-being. Positive mental balance allows you to make healthy choices, communicate well with others, and successfully deal with the demands of daily life.

It’s important to understand how hormones, nutrients and genetics influence your mental balance. Setbacks can include depressed mood, weight gain, poor sleep quality, fatigue, memory issues, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. Optimal nutrient levels help improve reasoning, mood and energy levels.

When will my kit be delivered?

Your order will be delivered with FedEx Ground within 5 business days. At home tests are shipped Monday – Friday. Make sure to order in advance to avoid possible shipping delays.

How do I collect my sample?

You’ll collect two different samples for this test. Start by collecting your first sample with a simple finger prick. Collect your second sample with a quick & painless mouth swab on the inside of your cheek. Your kit will come with everything you need to collect and ship back your samples. All from the comfort of your home.

Can a biotin supplement affect my lab results?

Yes, taking a biotin (vitamin B7) supplement can alter your lab results. Please refrain from taking biotin containing supplements for 3 days before collecting your sample.

Note: Supplements, such as hair, skin and nails supplements often contain high levels of biotin.

Can an estrogen cream affect my lab results?

Yes, using estrogen cream can alter your lab results when performing a finger stick collection due to the cream and oils remaining on the skin. If you use estrogen cream, dish soap can help remove any remnants. Please wash hands twice with a dish soap before collecting.

How long does sample collection take?

It can take up to thirty minutes to collect your sample. It’s important to plan accordingly. Remember to place your icepacks in the freezer five hours before collection.

Does this test require fasting?

In addition, taking a biotin (vitamin B7) supplement can alter your lab results. Please refrain from taking biotin containing supplements for 3 days before collecting your sample.

How long does my sample last after collection?

You should plan to ship your sample back the same day you collect it. Take your completed kit to a local FedEx drop box before end-of-day pickup to have it overnighted to the lab (Monday – Friday only).
