Genetic testing has moved into the mainstream and is the future of preventive health. In addition to the thousands of tests being offered for medical conditions and diseases, the science and research behind genetic testing related to lifestyle and wellness markers has progressed to the point of understanding the specific genes dictating how the human body processes carbohydrates, fat, protein, micro-nutrients, etc., and how specific genes determine the effectiveness of certain fitness activities.
With the genetic testing technology and scientific understanding of the human genome available today, it is now possible to develop individually tailored nutrition and exercise programs that are based on and tailored to your unique DNA. Only now has the cost of genetic testing come down to the point where it is feasible to use this technology for health management programs offered to the general public.
Programs tailored to an individual’s DNA have proven to be much more effective than generic programs. A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs. With the latest genomic technology, any health management program that does not take an individual’s genetic profile into account is simply guesswork.
Clinical studies and research on genetic testing related to lifestyle and wellness markers have been rapidly increasing in quality and volume since the human genome was first mapped in 2003. As the testing technology improves and the cost of analyzing an individual’s DNA decreases, more research facilities and universities around the world are able to perform more research studies with larger test subject groups, all leading to more being discovered about the connections between genetics and preventive health.
Our Genetics Research team is led by a top researcher in the field of exercise genomics, Dr. Mark Sarzynski. Our team is constantly reviewing newly published research, and we regularly update our solution protocols to include newly identified genes and to provide our customers with the soundest scientific basis for our health management programs.
Genetics-Based Health Management Programs
Genetic Direction is developing a comprehensive suite of genetics-based health management programs to address the most pressing preventive and performance health concerns in the world today.
GxSlim is a weight management program that takes your unique genetic makeup into account and provides you with diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype. This is not guesswork, one-size-fits-all or a fad diet of any kind – these are the only diet and exercise recommendations you will ever need again, because they are based on your DNA.
GxRenew is an innovative healthy aging program that utilizes your genetic profile to provide nutrient, food, activity and lifestyle recommendations to keep you looking and feeling young longer. Recently published research has linked numerous aging signs to genetic predisposition, and many of these indications may be addressed with DNA-based lifestyle changes.
GxNutrient provides a comprehensive analysis of your genetic predisposition to absorbing micronutrients in your diet. Even if you eat a perfectly balanced diet with plenty of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, most of us have some difficulty in absorbing one or more micronutrients at the cellular level. Understanding your genetic profile for how your body likely processes key vitamins and minerals is an important step in developing a healthy nutrition program.
GxPerform is a health and activity performance improvement program based on your genetic profile. The best nutrition, workout and supplement regimens for you cannot be determined without understanding your genetic predisposition. Genetic links to sports injury risks, VO2Max, and other athletic traits are also now known and key to athletic performance. For average athletes wanting to be good and good athletes wanting to be great, GxPerform provides you with the food, nutrient and training recommendations to allow you to reach your potential.
GxGutHealth is snapshot of your microbiome that utilizes a comprehensive platform that converts taxonomic signatures (16S) and gene lists (WGS) into microbiome-wide quantitative functional capabilities (phenotypes). A quantitative measure of each phenotype in a microbiome sample is computed on a scale from 0 to 100%.
