Did you know...?
Vitamin C is necessary for proper functioning of the human body. It is considered that vitamin C is one of the most prevalent antioxidative components of fruit and vegetables. The main function of this component is improvement of immunity.
Why is it important to know about vitamin C metabolism?
The result of the genetic analysis provides the patient with information regarding their genotype leading to correct or incorrect vitamin C metabolism. Individuals with predisposition to changes in metabolism are recommended to cover the full demand for this vitamin from the food sources and to take a supplement. Supplementation is recommended for anyone with incorrect vitamin C metabolism, especially for people physically active, people with intestinal diseases (possible worse absorption), with disturbed iron metabolism in the body (or with a genetic predisposition to impaired iron metabolism), and those recovering e.g., after surgeries, in wound healing.
How the test is performed?
Mutations in the GSTT1 gene have a significant impact on vitamin C level in the human body. Thanks to our reagents included in the kit, we can quickly and accurately determine the client’s genotype. The results are easy to interpret. In the included IFU, you can compare each curve and draw conclusions. In addition, in order to facilitate the work, we attach abbreviated recommendations corresponding to each genotype. The reagents are ready to use. Each stage of the test is described step by step in the manual. No sequencing is needed.
Why is it worth doing a genetic test?
Based on the test result and the decision matrix in the product IFU, the client will receive precise information about their gene variant and a brief explanation concerning what this variant means. Based on the product IFU the service provider can compile a report with the result and recommendations tailored to the client’s genotype.
What can be done after the test result?
A professional approach to the client will inspire their trust and ignite the desire to learn about other genes. It is worth checking for the presence of various genetic mutations to have a broader view of your health. Without the need for sequencing, you can access information about many DNA fragments that affect key parameters of our lives.
