Vitamins, Antioxidants & Minerals

Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by all living things. Understanding your genes can help you to plan and optimise your dietary or supplemental intake.

Including vitamins and antioxidants in your diet can help reduce oxidative stress and promote a number of important biological processes in your body, benefiting your everyday life.

Oxidative stress is caused by a build-up of free radicals, if the body can’t effectively neutralise these using antioxidants. Oxidative stress and the production of free radicals can arise as a result of intense exercise, processed foods, pollution and your psychological stress. An accumulation of free radicals can lead to you feeling exhausted, lethargic or de-motivated.

Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by an organism, in small quantities, for the correct functioning of its metabolism. Generally, essential nutrients cannot be made by the body, either at all or in sufficient quantities, and must be taken in as part of a healthy diet.

Including vitamins and antioxidants in your diet can help reduce oxidative stress and promote a number of important processes in your body, benefiting your everyday life. However, they should be used correctly in accordance with your individual requirements. Consideration should be given as to what you want them for and if you require them at all. Our genetic test can give you a unique insight into your body’s antioxidant and vitamin response, helping you plan and optimise your dietary or supplemental intake.

5 stars for Assure DNA. Fast, great service. Vitamin report gave me everything I wanted to know. Highly recommend.

DNA Testing made easy!

How it works

Our Vitamins, Antioxidants & Minerals test kits contain a mouth swab to collect your DNA, which is then sent to us for analysis in our laboratory. We look at a number of genetic variants that can influence your body’s ability to detoxify free radical and metabolise and utilise vitamins & minerals.

INCLUDED IN THIS TEST

Oxidative Stress

Your genetic test results indicate your potential to neutralise free radicals.

Detoxification

Here, we look at genetic variants that are involved in the removal potentially toxic substances.

Omega-3

We test for genes involved in the the production of inflammatory cytokines and make recommendations regarding OMEGA-3 intake.

Vitamin B & D Metabolism

This looks at various gene variants that are known to be involved in the regulation and metabolism of vitamins B and D.

DID YOU KNOW

Water-soluble vitamins, such as B Vitamins, cannot be stored in the body and must be taken daily to ensure your body has enough to perform essential functions and prevent deficiency.

Long, slow cooking of vegetables can deplete their vitamin content.

The body needs 100mg or more per day of major or macro-minerals, such as calcium, potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium and sulfur.

Exercise is extremely beneficial for the body in many respects. However lots of strenuous activity can actually increase production of free radicals.
