When Cynthia came to Ixcela, she was stressed and she felt an unusual amount of agitation toward others. She was losing focus at work and she felt so burnt out that her happiness—and her job—were on the line.
Cynthia tested with Ixcela and then worked with an Ixcela Registered Dietitian for about three months. After implementing a few changes to her nutrition and bedtime routines, she began to sleep better and her mood improved.
A damaged or leaky gut
Not enough protein
Poor sleep quality
Too much stress
Although it may sound simple, changing how you eat, drink, sleep, or move can profoundly improve your mood and mental sharpness.
For example, one of the metabolites that Ixcela tests is called tyrosine. Tyrosine comes from protein, and it is converted into compounds such as dopamine (a motivation driver) and adrenaline (the fight-or-flight hormone). Too much tyrosine may cause feelings of anxiousness. Too little tyrosine may decrease your drive and your ability to focus.
Ixcela programs use testing to identify the problem. Then, an Ixcela Registered Dietitian explains your data and prioritizes your food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations based on your goals and your willingness to change. No more guesswork!
