Key advantages:

  • 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 32 genes SNPs involved in the following biological processes:

  • Methylation
  • Inflammation
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Lipid/Cholesterol metabolism
  • Bone health
  • Insulin sensitivity
  • Food/Nutrient responses

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.

Results

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
