MAOA genetic variant:
Affects your dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin levels. Plays a major role in mood swings, self-confidence, addictive behavior, energy level, sleep, and carb cravings.
Tendencies: (fast MAOA): You are likely a carbo-holic. You feel blue without them but then even worse moments after eating them. You may feel out of control with food cravings, which leads to feeling depressed.
(slow MAOA): You are likely easily anxious, startled, and can overreact easily. You have a hard time falling asleep but sleep pretty well once you do. Too much cheese, chocolate or wine can trigger headaches.
Pros: High energy, self-confidence, focused, productive.
Eat adequate protein (multiply your weight by 0.36 for recommended daily grams)
Increase fiber in your diet (Best source: a wide variety of vegetables. Natural Athlete’s Natural G.I. Cleanse is also a good source).
Reduce stress (meditation, saunas, music, art, exercise, massage, etc. Natural Athlete’s Stress & Anxiety is a great option as well).
Increase quality sleep (7.5-9 hours is ideal. Natural Athlete’s Rest and Relax will help with this).
Talk to your doctor about avoiding the following medications, as they negatively react with a slow MAOA: SSRIs, Testosterone and Thyroid Meds, Natural Athlete’s Rest and Relax (this supplement is ideal for fast MAOA but not for slow), Tyrosine, Inositol.
