We are happy to introduce our new excipient app.


Excipients are inactive substances that serve as the vehicle or medium for a drug or other active substances.


Remember we are all unique and how one person reacts to an excipient can be completely different than the next person. Genetics are the hand we have been dealt and how we play that hand will result in an outcome.


This report will not give you all of the answers. Just because you see a SNP heterozygous or homozygous does not necessarily mean that the risk will outweigh the benefit. Always speak to your practitioner to get a better understanding of how this works if you have any questions or concerns.


The excipient app will include many excipients and research related to the excipients and the and genes.

The following are a few examples of excipients you will see:

  • micro crystalline cellulose
  • magnesium stearate
  • acetone
  • FD&C Yellow #6 aluminum lake dye
  • aluminum hydroxide
  • benzethonium chloride
  • formaldehyde
  • thimerosal
  • polysorbate 80
  • monosodium glutamate
  • phenol red


Remember our original report is also available now with videos being uploaded next to many of the genes. New videos will be coming out in the beginning of the new year. You do not have to repurchase the Version 2 report for this information. It is a free upgrade which is available when you view your live report at .


You can also access our SNPbit videos at our youtube channel.  


There is also a search bar that can be utilized. For example if you are curious about potassium you can put the tag word potassium in the search bar of Sterling’s V2 report and you will see genes related to potassium.

Some genes on the V2 report related to potassium are:


  • ACAT1
  • ACE
  • ADD1
  • MAT1A
  • MAT2A
  • SLC6A3
  • NOS1
  • DRD1


The second search bar on the live variant report at allows you just to search a gene. For example you can put in MTHFR and all MTHFR SNPs will come up that we have in the variant report.


We have a new free upgrade coming to our V2 report. The PPP (pentose phosphate pathway) is a crucial pathway. When not functioning it can compromise MTHFR, CYP450 genes and many more. Remember probably everyone who does their report will see a few SNPs heterozygous and homozygous on the PPP. If you have concerns speak to your practitioner. We should have the PPP out the first week of January or even sooner.


The sections that we have on the V2 report right now are:

  • Liver Detox Phase I
  • Liver Detox Phase II
  • Yeast/Alcohol Metabolism
  • Methylation Methionine Homocysteine Pathways
  • Trans-sulfuration Pathway
  • Neurotransmitter Pathway Serotonin and Dopamine
  • Neurotransmitter Pathway Glutamate and GABA
  • COMT Activity
  • Mitochondrial Function
  • Alzheimer’s/Cardio/Lipid
  • IgE
  • IgG
  • IgA
  • Clotting Factors
  • Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerence
  • Thyroid
  • Eye Health
  • Other Immune Factors


We have new pathways in the next few months that will be free upgrades to the V2 report.


Clinical Nutritionist Cynthia Smith from has worked hard in providing diagrams and will be working on new diagrams in the New Year to come. These diagrams help you understand how certain sections on the V2 report function.


Cynthia Smith from, Sterling Hill Erdei from and Carolyn Ledowsky from have also worked on a SNPbit compendium that can guide you through the variant report. Practitioners use it as a guide and learning tool to better understand their patients’ genetic setup.


We are now supporting which is more affordable than 23andme.


We wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year.
