We offer the most comprehensive genetic testing available to asses your unique genetic profile. 4 main panels include DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Sport and DNA Oestrogen.
Who is DNA Health for?
DNA Health is valuable to any patient and practitioner looking for a genetic basis for health and treatment. The analysis is comprehensive enough to cover all major health concerns, providing clear interpretations for lifestyle responses.
DNA Health is designed around 45 genes distributed across seven areas, all of which support our overall health:
1. Cholesterol metabolism: Genes that affect the degree to which the body can mobilise triglycerides to free fatty acids, which are important for cholesterol and distribution, and thus the are factors in the risk of cardiovascular disease .
2. B-vitamin / methylation: Genes that conduct methylation—repair and creation of new cells and DNA.
3. Detoxification processes: Genes that determine the quality of our two detoxification phases (Phase 1 and Phase 2). These phases are important biological processes responsible for eliminating and excreting waste products and toxins.
4. Inflammation: Genes that affect the body’s inflammatory response, including the production of inflammatory compounds. If inflammation level is too high, it affects the risk of developing a variety of lifestyle diseases.
5. Antioxidant status: Genes that stimulate the body’s own production of antioxidants. A low production can cause high levels of oxidative stress, inflammation and accumulation of toxins in the body.
6. Bone health: Genes that influence the body’s ability to absorb and metabolise vitamin D and calcium to ensure strong bone tissue.
7. Insulin resistance: Genes that affect the body’s insulin sensitivity and thus the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
Who is DNA Diet for?
DNA Diet is intended for people who have experience difficulty with weight loss and management. The test is recommended especially people who have been overweight for life or suspect that they may be genetically predisposed to obesity.
DNA Diet tests for genetic variations that affect metabolism and combustion processes; hunger and satiety regulation; insulin sensitivity; and inflammation. Based on these test results, DNA Diet offers recommendations for diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes that best support the genetic variations that have a substantial impact on our weight, metabolism, and ability to store and burn fat.
By analyzing an individual’s DNA Diet results we are able to recommend the best diet possible for that individual. In some cases a single diet may stand out clearly as the best diet possible to achieve results, for others, with less genetic barriers to weight loss, two or even all of the diets may prove to be effective, and the choice of which diet to follow would be based on the clients personal preferences, diet history, and eating attitudes, as discussed with an accredited practitioner.
Studies show that individuals respond differently to different types of diets, and thus there is no single diet that works well for everyone. By testing DNA Diet’s 20 established genetic variations, we can now recommend the best possible diet for each particular person. Test results are then viewed in their entirety, within the context of the patient’s background, medical history, daily life, dispositions, previous weight loss history, and desired future weight loss.
Who is DNA Sport for?
DNA Sport is aimed at both the elite and the recreational athlete looking to gain maximum return from training effort. Of particular interest are athletes who’ve responded below expectation, as the key to their performance lies within their genes. Whether after a marathon best or just seeking to finish her first race, DNA Sport is a vital tool in achieving an individual’s athletic potential.
DNA Sport Performance Factors
1. Strength and endurance: Tests for genes encoding physiological factors such circulatory and cardiovascular performance; blood pressure; heart and lung capacity; muscle strength; and adaption to training.
2. Tendon pathology: Detects genetic variations that increase the likelihood of soft tissue injuries such as those related to ligaments and connective tissue.
3. Recovery time: Tests for genes that affect the athlete’s predisposition to inflammation, free radicals, and oxidative stress within the body.
Who is DNA Oestrogen for?
Oestrogen hormones affect the growth, differentiation and function of a number of target tissues. Improving oestrogen metabolism is of benefit to women who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome and uterine fibroid tumours, or where there is a family history of breast, uterine or ovarian cancer.
The importance of both oestrogen and progesterone in breast cancer development is well established. However, considerable inter-individual variability has been observed in carcinogen metabolism, metabolism of steroid hormones, and phase I and phase II detoxification.
Variations in genes involved in these biological processes help identify a sub- population of women with higher lifetime exposure to oestrogens, oestrogen metabolites and other carcinogens. Understanding an individual’s genetic variability will allow for targeted diet, lifestyle and hormone intervention.
DNAlysis Oestrogen Metabolism and Detoxification test includes 10 genes involved in oestrogen biosynthesis, oestrogen metabolism, and phase I and phase II detoxification. The results provide unique information to guide personalized diet, lifestyle, hormone and nutraceutical recommendations.
