Zinc: is an essential mineral that adequate levels are needed for the body to function. Zinc stimulates cell division in the body and also supports your immune system, growth and manufacture of DNA. A zinc deficiency may be associated to symptoms such as depression, ADHD, ADD, learning difficulties and more.

Copper: is an essential trace mineral which works with iron to help the body form red blood cells. Copper is also essential as it assists in producing energy, forming connective tissue, and helping the central nervous system function properly. Excessive copper can lead to anxiety, mood disorders, depression and other mental health conditions.

Ceruloplasmin: is the major copper-carrying protein in the blood, and in addition plays a role in iron metabolism.

Histamine: is a Neurotransmitter produced and stored within the body. Abnormal histamine levels may directly influence brain function and behaviour such as depression, anxiety or schizophrenia.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D “the sunshine vitamin”, is necessary for maintaining good health. Low Vitamin D has been associated with a number of health concerns.

Homocysteine: is a naturally occurring amino acid produced by the body which if imbalanced can be associated to a number of health conditions that may affect our day to day lives.

S‐Adenosylmethionine: short for SAMe is a naturally occurring compound that is found in almost every tissue and fluid in the body. SAMe plays a role in the immune system, maintains cell membranes, and helps produce and break down serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine.

S‐Adenosylhomocysteine: short for SAH is an Amino acid derivative and modulator of the activated methyl cycle and cysteine biosynthesis and product of S-adenosyl methionine dependant methylation of biological molecules, including DNA, RNA, histones and other proteins.
