DNA Testing made easy!

How it works

Our test kits contain a mouth swab to collect your DNA, which is then sent to us for analysis in our laboratory. We look at variations in genes which contribute to weight and diet, such as refined carbohydrate sensitivity and physical activity effects. We send you a tailored report based on your unique genetic variations, which includes lifestyle recommendations to best control your weight and fitness.

INCLUDED IN THIS TEST

Refined carbohydrate sensitivity

We test for genes involved in the sensitivity to refined carbohydrates. The higher the sensitivity, the higher the blood glucose and therefore weight gain may be for a given amount of carbohydrate.

Saturated fats sensitivity

YWe identify gene variants involved in saturated fats sensitivity. Variations in these genes means that different people absorb and transport fat more or less efficiently than others.

Physical activity effects

Genetic testing can identify gene variants affecting the intensity of exercise required to achieve fat burning whilst maintaining lean mass.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are good evolutionary reasons why we gain weight easily and store it as fat – this was a very useful trait when food supply was scarce, erratic or both.

By tailoring your diet to your test results, your chances of maintaining weight-loss increases.

The body keeps track of how many fat cells it has as well as the amount of fat in each cell. If fat cells are removed by liposuction, for example, the body compensates by growing new fat cells in other areas of the body.

Studies have shown that factors such as stress and sleep deprivation can make it harder for a person to lose weight.
