Its quite simple, really. The Gene SNP DNA Analysis Kit contains simple-to-use cheek swabs that you mail to our certified research laboratory, which conducts the confidential testing. Next, the online customer profile asks detailed questions about your lifestyle choices and habits. That's it. Within a few weeks, after careful, detailed analysis of both your DNA Analysis and online customer profile answers, you'll receive notification that your personalized Health Action Plan is available for viewing online.
No two people have the same fingerprint. Like our fingerprints, our genetic variations are unique identifiers which make us different from every other person. Its the variations in genes that make us who we are. From our gender; the color of our hair, eyes and skin; the types of foods that work best with our bodies; and even the type of exercise designed to maximize our individual performance, our genes are the instruction manual for the creation and maintenance of our bodies.
Our genes are composed of combinations of protein bases. While there are only four possible bases, they can be combined in billions of ways to code for countless functions in the body. These four bases make up the DNA alphabet and combine to form words and phrases that give instructions to your body for everything from how your cells function to the color of your hair. Sometimes, when cells in the body replicate to make new cells, mistakes are made and a gene that was supposed to code for the word now reads By changing just one letter or just one base, the gene now has a totally new meaning and function. These variations are called single nucleotide polymorphisms (or SNPs).
These small variations in DNA are expressed in many ways. They can influence how we metabolize food and what types of exercise are best suited for our bodies. By identifying our own unique gene variations, we can customize lifestyle approaches and nutritional supplementation to maximize our genetic potential promoting optimal health never before achieved.
