Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is a gene that contributes to an individual’s ability to remove mercury and other heavy metals from the human body, transports lipoproteins to the liver, and is predictive in the early onset of Alzheimer’s. There are 3 genetic variants for ApoE: 2, 3, and 4. By utilizing cheek cells as the sample, this panel detects Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to ascertain the patient’s ApoE genotypic profile, in a non-invasive manner.
The optimal genotype for removing mercury is ApoE 2/2, whereas ApoE 3/3 is the most prevalent in the human population, and the most detrimental is ApoE 4/4. Research shows that people with ApoE 2 are at high risk for heart attack due to hyperlipidemia, however, people with harmful forms of the ApoE gene (genotype 3/4, 4/4) have up to 12 times the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared with those who have other variations (2/2, 2/3, 3/3) of the gene.
Oral cells allow us to determine your ability to detoxify mercury, Alzheimer’s susceptibility, and other autoimmune/neurological diseases. The DNA ConneXions® ApoE Genotype test panel will determine what ApoE (Apolipoprotein-E) genotype you are (2/2, 2/3, 2/4, 3/3, 3/4, 4/4). This test utilizes the DNA ConneXions® Super Floss sampling method.
