Food intolerances or allergies often lead to chronic inflammatory conditions responsible for many diseases. Most immune cells are located in the gastrointestinal tract and consuming intolerable foods can mislead them, thus weaking the immune system and increasing susceptions to serious illness. Therefore, it is important to take care of the correct diet and to exclude or limit all harmful factors in it.

Many food hypersensitivity is genetically determined and an appropriate study allows identification of individual predispositions of the organism in question to a specific disorder. By knowing the results of such a study, you can change your lifestyle accordingly and minimize or eliminate the risk of symptoms altogether.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins in the life of humans. It occurs mainly in green products. Its effect on the body is omnidirectional. The most important functions of vitamin C can include participation in the synthesis of hormones, support for the conversion of fats and nutrient absorption. In addition, it helps in maintaining healthy gums, promotes wound healing, regulates arterial pressure and counteracts the development of tumors.

Vitamin C Deficiencies

Lack of adequate levels of vitamin C adversely affects many processes occurring in the body. People with shortages can complain about bleeding gums, reduced immunity or poor wound healing. There may also be disturbances in the formation of collagen and problems with the absorption of iron, while prolonged deficiencies can lead to cancerous, atherosclerotic lesions, as well as increase blood pressure.

What genes are analysed in the study and what do they influence?

The GSTT1 gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the family S-transferase Glutathin. These enzymes play an important role in the metabolism of vitamin C. The test gene may be present in the form of an active ("Ins") or an inactive form called Deleca ("Del"). Different variants of this gene affect the use of vitamin C by the body. Version "Del" reduces the ability to metabolising vitamin C and its lower level, compared to those with the variant "Ins" with a similar supply of this vitamin in the diet.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

A study verifying the metabolism of vitamin C will be a good proposition for everyone, because it participates in many important processes of the body. The study is a great complement to the B-complex, because vitamin C is involved in the absorption of iron and dysfunction in its metabolism can also adversely affect its level.

Can I donate this study to someone?'

You can transfer/donate selected studies to another person. You just need to enter the box names for each of the selected products when completing your order after entering your shipping address. By giving different names of boxes (e.g. 1-my, 2-for-mum) You can create test kits for both yourself and the people you want to donate GeneMe study to.

It is also worth remembering that:

Each successive test within one SWAT (i.e. one box) is awarded for 50% of the price.
We send your entire order to one of the specified addresses to send the boxes in different places to separate orders.
