Folate metabolism test

The MyFolate genetic test is a test that analyses genetic variants related to the folate metabolic pathway, determining a possible deficiency and developing the best strategy to counteract it. Folate, also known as vitamin B9, is an essential nutrient that plays a critical role in a variety of fundamental biological processes. Understanding how folate metabolism works is fundamental for the prevention and management of various health conditions and diseases such as megaloblastic anaemia.

What is it for?

El test MyFolate determina la presencia/ausencia de variantes genéticas relacionadas con una serie de reacciones bioquímicas complejas que son vitales para:

  • Síntesis de ADN
  • Reparación celular
  • División celular

Non-invasive

Once in a lifetime

Scientific evidence

Vitamin B9

Introducing the folate metabolism test

  • Genetic test to determine how people metabolise folate and adapt their habits to their needs.
  • Non-invasive test. The DNA is obtained from a saliva sample, completely painless and suitable for any person and age.
  • It is performed once in a lifetime, genetics does not change.
  • It analyses genetic markers with scientific validity and usefulness to improve people’s lives.
  • Innovative technology that offers greater precision and depth in the results.
  • Once the sample has been received in the laboratory, you will receive your results within a maximum of 20 days.

Who is it aimed at?

This test has been conceived as a diagnostic tool for nutritionists, with which to know the genetic predisposition of each person and to be able to personalise nutritional plans more precisely, increasing their effectiveness.

Folate deficiency

Understanding the proper functioning of folate metabolism is crucial to prevent and treat deficits in folate or vitamin B9 levels. Some genes coding for enzymes involved in folate metabolism, such as MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) affect your ability to process folate and increase the risk of several diseases such as:

  • Megaloblastic anaemia: abnormally large red blood cells that do not function properly, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness and shortness of breath.
  • Cardiovascular disease: increased levels of homocysteine in the blood, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
  • Depression and other psychiatric disorders: folate is necessary for the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Deficiency has been associated with an increased risk of depression and other psychiatric disorders.
  • Cognitive problems and dementia: increased risk of cognitive impairment and dementia in older adults.
  • Complications during pregnancy: neural tube defects such as spina bifida, low birth weight, premature birth and other obstetric complications.
