About this test

Have you ever questioned the need to reduce your caffeine intake? Find out whether you metabolize caffeine quickly or slowly through the DNA Caffeine Sensitivity Test, which assesses genetic variants in the CYP1A2 gene. “Slow” metabolizers, characterized by specific genetic variants, face an elevated risk of heart attacks and hypertension.

Description

Caffeine affects individuals differently based on their metabolism. Fast caffeine metabolizers eliminate caffeine more quickly, while slow metabolizers take longer to clear it from their bodies.

Prolonged circulation of caffeine increases the risk of heart attack and high blood pressure (hypertension). Slow metabolizers who consume more than 3 cups of coffee daily may elevate their risk of:

  • A heart attack by 2 to 4 times.
  • Hypertension by 3 times.

Consider this straightforward genetic analysis to assess whether your caffeine consumption might be impacting your health.

Technical Info

Approximately 95% of the body’s caffeine breakdown is facilitated by the CYP1A2 enzyme. This enzyme exists in two prevalent genetic variants: a “fast” metabolizer variant and a “slow” metabolizer variant.

The “slow” genetic variant is linked to diminished levels of the CYP1A2 enzyme, resulting in a slower rate of caffeine breakdown. Individuals inheriting the “slow” variant require more time to clear caffeine from their system.

Prolonged circulation of caffeine heightens the risk of heart problems and hypertension. For “slow” metabolizers, it is advisable to reduce caffeine consumption to mitigate these risks.
