Every person contains a unique set of genetics that governs how your body manages weight, recovers from exercise, detoxify heavy metals as well as process stress and aging. Understand your genetic make-up and personalise your lifestyle and treatments to allow yourself to be the best you, with a Comprehensive Genetic Test.
What can you find out?
Insights on your Optimal Diet
Provides strategies for weight management based on genetic make-up
Provides motivation to individuals with a goal to lose weight
Provides an understanding of why previous weight management programmes may have been unsuccessful
Provides insight to which diet type (i.e. Mediterranean style, low carbohydrate, low fat diet) may be most suited to an individual to manage weight, based on genotype.
Insights on Pre-existing Vitamin and Toxin Sensitivities
Highlights specific metabolic pathways that may require extra support.
Provides recommendations that involve optimisation of quantities of certain nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Suggests whether an individual is better able to reduce their cholesterol levels through diet, as opposed to through medication.
Provides an indication of the degree of susceptibility to the harmful effects of carcinogens ingested in the diet
Insights on Pre-existing Mental Health Disorder Risks and Management Mind
Knowledge of an individual’s genotype will provide diagnostic insight and assist in determining optimal treatment strategies for individuals suffering from, or at risk for, mental health disorders.
Genes included in the test are involved in key biological areas related to mental health. These areas include:
Neurotrophic, dopaminergic & serotonergic pathways
Insights on Skin Health and Aging
Our genetic test analyses variations on 18 genes associated with the following key areas involved in skin health and aging and reveals personalised lifestyle, nutrition, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical recommendations can be given for improved skincare and to decrease the visible signs of aging.
Protection from SUN & UV exposure
Protection from oxidative stress.
Insights on Performance and Recovery
We examine various biological areas that impact training responsiveness and sporting performance. These include soft tissue and bone formation and remodelling; inflammation; oxidative stress; oxygenation influenced by blood flow and respiration; energy and fuel production; and metabolism during exercise. Knowledge of gene variations that influence these key biological areas can be used to exploit any genetic advantages and identify any weaknesses that need to be supported, through diet and the training strategies.
Suitable for both recreational and elite performance athletes, it provides information to optimise:
Power and endurance – physiological factors
Structural integrity – tendon pathology and injury risk
Recovery – training patterns and nutrition
Insights on Hormone Risk (Only on Nordic)
- DNA Oestrogen tests for gene variants that have been shown to have an impact on how oestrogen is metabolised. Guiding the personalisation of diet, hormone and nutritional supplement recommendations, based on the insight gained from the DNA Oestrogen test, to improve oestrogen metabolism is of benefit to men and women who suffer from numerous oestrogen-dominant conditions and who have higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens, oestrogen metabolites and other carcinogens.
Useful for :
Men or women with a strong family history of breast, ovarian, colon or prostate cancer.
Women who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome and uterine fibroid tumours.
Women considering oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy or bio-identical hormone supplementation.
Women who are considering in vitro fertilisation or who have been diagnosed with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
