Genetic Testing for Health and Fitness
You already know that the food you eat, the supplements you take and the exercises you do (or don’t) can have a significant impact on your health. But did you know that your genes play a role as well?
- Are you experiencing health issues that you can’t get resolved?
- Have you been spending money on supplements, not knowing if you really need them?
- Do you wonder how different you may feel if you knew exactly what your body needed?
Genetic testing has been around for many years. However, we’ve only recently been able to provide genetic information as it pertains to your DNA’s need for nutrition and proper lifestyle.
In recent years, scientists have discovered that small variations in your genes can influence how well your body metabolizes food, uses nutrients, and cleanses damaging toxins. This interaction between genes, diet and lifestyle is referred to as Nutrigenomics – the study of nutrition and genes.
Individuals often inherit genes which may put them at higher risk of negative health conditions. For example:
- 16% of us have a gene variation that limits the creation of new bones
- 37% have a variation in the cholesterol metabolizing gene
- 34% have a genetically reduced ability to fight free radicals
Since your genetic makeup is fixed at birth, if you have a specific variation, you may be able to alter certain elements of your diet or lifestyle to potentially reduce the risk of developing various common health conditions.
Who Should Take the Test
If you take supplements but don’t think you’re benefiting as you should, have suffered with ongoing health issues or if you have questions about EXACTLY how much of each vitamin you need, then this test is for you.
Those who would benefit from the test and information unlocked about their genetic code:
- People looking to optimize health and/or fitness
- Chronic illness patients who want to get better
- Fitness and competition athletes who want the extra edge
- Folks spending lots of money and guessing at what supplements they need
- Ongoing skin and gut issues sufferers
Your body’s unique genetic makeup provides clues to achieving optimal health and wellness with a nutrition and lifestyle plan that is distinctive and personalized to you.
Test over 60 genes which are affected by nutrition. Taking this test now can put you on the right track to make sure your lifestyle, eating and supplementation habits are adequate to prevent any genetic variances you may have been given.
This information is invaluable to you.
