The COMT gene produces an enzyme largely responsible for metabolizing your neurotransmitters (the chemicals (aka neurochemicals) in the brain that help to produce emotions – pleasure, fear, anxiety etc). Optimal neurotransmitter metabolism is crucial to your executive function. If you have either the ‘slow’ or ‘fast’ version of the COMT gene, you may be at an increased risk of prolonged or overly short emotional states with important implications to your executive function.

Components that potentially slow down the expression of COMT (ie reduce the rate of metabolism of your neurochemicals) are: EGCG, Quercetin, Luteolin, and L-Tyrosine. The components that potentially increase the expression of COMT (ie increase the rate of metabolism of your neurochemicals) are: B-Vitamins, Magnesium, Rhodiola, Theanine.
