Nutrigenomic and nutrigenetic tests allow you to understand your body’s unique needs based on your unique DNA. An ideal test for people wanting to understand what could be behind a chronic illness, for people wanting to work with their DNA for maximum health and longevity and potential, for people wanting to tailor their supplement and dietary programme according to their DNA.
Tests for genetic variations that are known to have a significant effect on health and susceptibility to chronic diseases. (e.g. Methylation, Detoxification, Oxidation etc.).
Accurate and useful genetic results
Emphasis on the inter-relationship between genes, nutrition and lifestyle
DNA Health is concerned with optimising energy, wellbeing and health by making better lifestyle and diet choices, and using supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit or genetic shortcoming. The DNA Health approach establishes the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, energy, longevity and risk mitigation.
DNA Health tests for 27 genes involved in the following biological processes:
DNA Health Nutritional Supplementation
The recommendations for many of the genes that are looked at involve optimisation of quantities of certain nutrients, vitamins and minerals. For example, some individuals have an increased requirement for such nutrients as folic acid, calcium, vitamin D or omega-3 fatty acids, which may require supplementation. The test also suggests whether an individual will be able to reduce their cholesterol levels through diet, as opposed to through medication and whether they are more or less susceptible to the harmful affects of carcinogens ingested in the diet.
This provides the potential opportunity to develop or co-develop a range of supplements that addresses specific gene-based requirements.
The results provide unique information to guide personalised dietary recommendations for optimal health and disease prevention. The outcomes of these tests provide opportunities to manage wellness by:
Optimising energy, wellbeing and health
Making better lifestyle and dietary choices
Using supplements tailored to offset a particular deficit in nutrition or genetic predisposition
More About DNALife
Genetic testing and nutrigenomics are the future of individualised healthcare. Although reliable genetic testing is readily available for clinical use, genetics is still a relatively new clinical tool. Until recently, healthcare practitioners have been left to educate themselves in this exciting area of clinical science, by simply picking up information where they can.
It is for this reason that DNAlysis Biotechnology, created DNALife. DNALife comprises a dedicated team of scientists with expertise in Human Genetics, Molecular Biology, Nutritional Genomics and Dietetics. DNALife leverages scientific advances in Human Genomics research for the benefit of the consumer, by providing access to affordable, quality genetic testing that is presented in an accurate, ethical, consumer-friendly manner.
By placing emphasis on the inter-relationship between genes, nutrition and lifestyle, genetic tests provide a valuable tool for the management of health and wellness. The use of cutting-edge molecular technologies provides high-quality testing, performed according to the highest international standards.
Equipped with the most up-to-date DNA tests, DNALife is dedicated to providing healthcare practitioners with training and education to accurately and usefully interpret genetic results.
DNA Diet is amongst the most comprehensive and accurate weight-management and body composition related genetic tests available.
