Women’s Sport & Fitness DNA test
A balanced diet and regular exercise are essential for your health and well-being. Your DNA contains specific gene variants which have a significant influence on many aspects of your personal well-being: exercise, food and drug metabolism, sporting ability, skin vitality, and nutrient absorption, to name a few. Technological advancements and developments in genetic understanding allows us to realise the benefits of applying knowledge of an individual’s specific genetic variants to build a health and fitness profile based on the strengths within their DNA. In order to reveal your genetic potential, step 1 is to identify your personal gene variants through the Health & Fitness DNA test.
The information stored in your genes: ACTN3, FTO, SOD2, CYP1A2, TFAP2B, PLIN1, MTHFR, SLC23A1, VDBP, FUT2, ALP and BMCO1 relate to conditions in terms of physical activity, talent in sport, the health of your skin and bones, proper nutrition, and the metabolism of vitamins and caffeine. Once identified, we will provide personalised information and advice based on your specific gene variants to allow you to utilise your genetic strengths to help you reach optimal results. The Health & Fitness DNA test combines our full Obesity and Weight Management test with our Skin and Acne DNA test. These two tests, plus a further focus on your genetic traits to exercise and nutrition, provides a wide array of information that you can apply to multiple areas of your everyday life, and makes the Health & Fitness test unbeatable value!
This Health & Fitness DNA test for women will provide you with important information.
You will learn from report:
Diet and weight management
- How different diets are suited to different genotypes and which one could be best suited for you. We will test your DNA to identify the ideal composition of nutrients within your diet. This will help you to negate any traits within your genes which make you susceptible to weight gain and the development of associated health concerns.
- How your genes influence the level of leptin – a hormone which reduces appetite. We will then provide advice on how you can recognise and plan eating behaviour, and control cravings.
- Which foods to include in your diet and which foods to avoid in order to achieve your ideal body weight, according to your genotype. Often, changing only the type of dietary fat consumed can lead to significant progress in weight loss.
- Whether your DNA puts you at risk developing of insulin resistance, which can contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular system problems, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
- How ‘free radicals’ can cause damage to your cells, how your genotype affects the levels within your body, and what you can do to combat levels of free radicals.
- How your genetic variant affects activity of the SOD2 enzyme, and how this enzyme is beneficial to your body. The diagnosis of your genetic variant will identify the food types optimal for strengthening the body’s antioxidant system. Inadequate function of this enzyme can increase the risk of atherosclerosis, cancer, coronary heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Fitness, sport & workout
- How your genotype can influence strength, speed and stamina, and how to train effectively to achieve your genetic potential.
- Whether you carry the so-called ‘sprinter gene’, typical for 31% of the population. Those who have this gene are genetically adapted for strength and speed, and are more likely to excel in sports such as judo, sprinting and weight lifting.
- Alternatively, are you within the 18% of the population who carry the ‘marathoner gene’? Possessing this gene adapts carriers for elevated stamina and endurance; an ideal genotype for sports such as long distance swimming, cross-country running, and skiing.
- The sports in which your DNA can give you an edge over competitors who rely only on conventional training methods without using genetic understanding as a tool to achieve optimum performance.
- Your genetic predisposition to the development of asthma – a common condition which causes breathing difficulties. Discover how you can help to control symptoms by ensuring the adequate intake of a specific vitamin.
Micro nutrient and caffeine absorption
- How different variants of the BCMO1 gene can impact the conversion of carotenoids to vitamin A – a vitamin essential for the healthy functioning of vision, the skin, nails, and the immune system. Learn how slight alterations to your diet can improve BCMO1 enzyme activity.
- How your particular genes impact folic acid (vitamin B9) metabolism through activity of the MTHFR enzyme. A deficiency of dietary folic acid in conjunction with specific genetic variants can lead to problems with the cardiovascular and digestive systems, sleep difficulties and poor mental health.
- Why homocysteine – a substance produced in our bodies – can be considered a pathogen, whether your genes make you susceptible, and what you can do to help reduce its damaging effects.
- The extent to which your genetic variant aids the transport of vitamin D around your body, and how you can ensure you have adequate amounts of this unique vitamin. A deficiency of vitamin D is strongly related to osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
- The benefits of sufficient levels of vitamin B6 (proper function of the nervous system) and vitamin B12 (DNA synthesis) and how your genotype influences absorption of these vitamins from food. A lack of these micro nutrients is strongly associated with anaemia, which causes lethargy and weakness.
- How your variant of the CYP1A2 gene within the rs762551 genetic marker influences caffeine metabolism and therefore susceptibility to effects of caffeine overdose when in conjunction with specific gene variants. Symptoms of excessive caffeine levels can include dizziness, headaches and anxiety.
- The importance of vitamin C to the proper functioning of our bodies, and whether you are genetically predisposed to the optimal absorption of this antioxidant, and if not, what you can do to improve bioavailability and promote healthy skin, healthy gums, and proper healing .
- Whether you are genetically predisposed to the common skin condition acne. Learn how you can use a multi-faceted approach of cosmetic, dietary, personal hygiene, and lifestyle alternations to improve the appearance and health of your skin.
- The extent of which your diet plays a role in the health of your skin by determining nutrient content within your body, and which foods to include in your diet and which to avoid to support your genotype.
- How sufficient amounts of vitamins A and C benefits the vitality and overall health of your skin and helps to reduce the symptoms of acne, and how your genetic variant influences the absorption of these vitamins and antioxidants.
- How lifestyle factors, such as exposure to sunlight and smoking, can affect your skin, and what you can do to limit damage.
- Your genetic predisposition to optimal collagen synthesis, and the maintenance of skin vitality and regeneration.
- How the use of cosmetics can significantly improve the health of your skin, especially those containing specific nutrients.
- The relation between activity of the BCMO1 enzyme and the process of skin photo-aging, the appearance of wrinkles, and regeneration efficiency. Learn how your genetic variant affects production of BCMO1, and how you can support your body.
Together with the test results revealing the genetic variants within your DNA, you will receive a collection of advice and recommendations detailing the abovementioned issues. All recommendations are prepared and personalised unique to your individual genotype.
