It has been found that the COMT gene plays a crucial role in many vital bodily functions, such as brain chemistry, immune health, inflammation, energy production, cardiovascular health, and more. You can quickly determine whether you possess this gene by undergoing a straightforward and non-invasive cheek swab test.

This SNP MTHFR Combined Buccal Swab Add-on - Genova Test Kit examines the COMT (V158M) variant, also known as an SNP:


  • COMT (Catechol-O-Methyltransferase) – Changes in the COMT gene can cause the enzyme to work less effectively. This is associated with different mental health conditions, difficulties with estrogen metabolism, and increased sensitivity to pain.


Genetic testing lets you learn more about your DNA and potential health risks. Genetic variants can be thought of as puzzle pieces that, when examined, can help you take preventative measures. Even though gene variants don't change, understanding them can help you make informed decisions about your diet, supplements, and lifestyle to maintain good health.
