Description

Concerned about your nutritional health?
Struggling to lose weight?
Want the perfect exercise plan?

This is the genetic analysis for you!

Improve your nutrition based on your genetics
A balanced nutritional intake is essential for a healthy body and mind. But do the thousands of nutrition supplements on the market overwhelm you, or do you just want to ensure you have a balanced intake from dietary sources? Your genetic variation determines how well your body is able to absorb and utilize vitamins and minerals, as there is no “wonder supplement” or “perfect diet” that will work for everyone.

Lose weight with the help of DNA
Do you struggle to maintain a healthy body weight? Are the latest diet fads just not working for you? It is time to consider your genes. Scientific research has identified multiple genetic variants that have a significant influence on an individual’s body weight and response to specific diets.

Start a personalized exercise plan based on your DNA to get the best results
Are you struggling to improve your fitness for next year’s football season? Or maybe you are just interested to know why you have great sprinting ability but your endurance ability is considerably lacking? It all comes down to genetics.

This genetic analysis examines your DNA profile and provides useful insight to help ensure a healthy nutritional status, to help you lose weight, and to allow you to follow a personalized exercise program to achieve your personal sport and health goals.

Nutrition
Adequate levels of vitamins and minerals are needed for growth, repair and maintenance of the human body. Deficiencies increase the risk of certain diseases and can lead to numerous health issues, including fatigue, skin problems, depression, headaches, memory loss, vision problems, reduced immunity and brittle bones. Many genetic variants have been identified that influence how well we absorb, activate and utilize specific vitamins and minerals.

This test identifies genetic changes in these genes:

  • BCO1 – affects activation of vitamin A
  • NBPF3 – increases clearance of vitamin B6 from the body
  • FUT2 – reduces absorption of vitamin B12 in the gut
  • SLC23A1 – decreases vitamin C absorption and distribution
  • CYP2R1 – reduces activation of vitamin D
  • GC – reduces efficiency of vitamin D transport and uptake
  • APOA5 – influences vitamin E levels
  • MTHFD1 – linked to folate-related disorders
  • MTHFR – affects activation of folate
  • TMPRSS6 – influences iron absorption from the diet
  • TF – influences iron transport
  • NOS3 – influences triglyceride levels when omega-3 is low

Weight Loss
Obesity risk is influenced by poor diet and lifestyle choices (e.g. excess calories and lack of exercise), but it is also strongly influenced by an individual’s genetic makeup. Your genetics affect your food choices and desire, motivation to get out and exercise, digestion, metabolism, hormone pathways, and even your circadian rhythm.

This test identifies genetic changes in these genes:

  • MC4R – disrupts appetite suppression
  • NMB – associated with food disinhibition
  • FTO – influences energy intake, diet impact and satiety
  • SH2B1 – interrupts a satiety hormone signalling pathway
  • BDNF – influences exercise motivation
  • APOA2 – alters saturated fat metabolism
  • AMY1 – reduces the ability to digest starch
  • FABP2 – increases fatty acid uptake
  • ADIPOQ – disrupts normal glucose regulation
  • ADRB2 – affects weight loss in response to exercise
  • CLOCK – disrupts the normal circadian rhythm

Fitness
Physical activity is essential for a healthy body and mind. Everyone responds differently to different types of exercises, whether the goal is to lose weight, improve muscle tone or run a faster marathon. And genetic variation contributes to these varying responses. Recent studies have also identified multiple genetic variants that are more prevalent in endurance athletes, while different genetic variants frequently occur in sprinters and other power athletes. Genetic variation also influences an individual’s exercise motivation, exercise tolerance, susceptibility to injury and pain tolerance.

This test identifies genetic changes in these genes:

  • AGT – blood pressure regulation and growth hormone levels
  • IL6 – inflammation, bone and muscle growth
  • ACTN3 – the “sprinter gene”
  • ACE – blood pressure regulation and muscle efficiency
  • ADRB2 – turning off the fight or flight response
  • PPARA – slow-twitch versus fast-twitch muscle fibres
  • PPARD – fat burning for energy and improving “good” cholesterol
  • ACVR1B – muscle strength
  • VEGFA – blood vessel formation to improve oxygen supply
  • PPARGC1A – aerobic capacity improvements
  • MCT1 – ability to use lactate as an energy source
  • BDNF – exercise motivation
  • CRP – heart rate recovery
  • COL1A1 – risk of soft tissue injury
  • COL5A1 – risk of Achilles tendinopathy
  • COMT – pain tolerance and required morphine dose
