YOUR DNA CREATES THE BLUEPRINT

For all the functions in your body. Passed down from our parents, each person has 46 chromosomes (23 pairs): one pair from your mother, and one from your father. Your unique combination of chromosomes creates your DNA that contains genetic variations called polymorphisms.

WHAT IS EPIGENETICS?

Epigenetics is the interaction between elements of your environment such as diet and stress, which act as epigenetic signals, and can change the physical expression of your genes. Your genes don't change, but the way they are expressed can.

“In one dish, the cells became bone, in another, muscle, and in the last dish, fat. This demonstrated that the genes didn’t determine the fate of the cells because they all had the exact same genes. The environment determined the fate of the cells, not the genetic pattern. So if cells are in a healthy environment, they are healthy. If they’re in an unhealthy environment, they get sick.”

– Dr. Bruce Lipton

HOW DO I GET MY DNA TESTED?

Although there are other ways to analyze DNA, we use a noninvasive, cheek swab to collect buccal (cheek) cells. The swab is easy to use and only takes about a minute to collect enough DNA for processing.

Your detailed results come in an easy-to-read format that shows you what to DO, EAT and TAKE

WHAT TO DO

Have you ever noticed some friends work out twice a week and keep slim, while others spend hours in the gym every day and can't lose any more weight? Everyone’s body reacts differently to exercise and that includes you! Find out what works best for your body.

  • Which types of exercises you need to do (e.g., high intensity vs. low intensity)
  • Duration and frequency of recommended exercises
  • Routine for a week of exercises

WHAT TO EAT

Have you ever tried a diet your friend swore by, but that just didn’t end up working for you? Everyone is different and reacts differently to nutritional components. So, while a no-carb diet may work for your boss, it may produce the exact opposite effect for you. Find out what foods are optimal for you.

  • What you need to eat to achieve your goals
  • Daily percentages of fats, carbohydrates and proteins

WHAT TO TAKE

Did you know that while branch chain amino acids help most people build muscle and recover faster, they actually have the opposite effect for a subset of the population? Supplements are a great way to optimize your health but, as you may suspect by now, not everyone responds the same way. Find out which supplements are best for you.

  • Which supplements you need to take to optimize your genetic variant and maintain healthy energy levels
