Mood Profile | Genetic Testing Services | Kashi Clinical Laboratories

The Kashi Mood Profile Panel identifies nutrient deficiencies that may contribute each patient’s susceptibility to mood disorders.

About 350 million people worldwide suffer from behavioral health issues such as depression or anxiety. Although the physiological basis behind these crippling mood disorders is not completely understood, several biochemical factors (such as serotonin and dopamine) are scientifically proven to affect mental health and perceptions of panic or anxiety. Several genetic markers have been identified that affect metabolic pathways in the body involving dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, and folate; all known to be associated with depression and anxiety. The Kashi Mood Profile Panel analyzes multiple genes to determine whether there are any identifiable mutations known to affect these pathways, providing information that can help patients manage the mood disorder specific to their genetic code.
