What is Mental Resilience?
The Mental Resilience result tells about the ability to tolerate everyday mental stress and burden without ending up having severe anxiety or depression.
While you may not immediately associate mental health with a blood test, your brain is connected to the rest of your body, and good overall health reflected by the blood test results is connected to better mental resilience.
We can detect similar signals in the Blood Test Contributors Low-grade Inflammation, Fatty Acid Balance, Dietary Fatty Acids, and Cholesterol Balance, and these contribute to your Mental Resilience result along with your BMI and smoking status.
The result demonstrates your odds of averting severe depression and anxiety in the next 10 years. For example, “2 times stronger” means you have twice the odds of avoiding severe depression and anxiety compared to the average person of the same age and sex.
