A) WHAT IS NUTRIGENETICS?
Nutrigenetics is the study of how genetic variation in individuals affect their response to particular nutrients and toxins in the diet.
B) HOW IS THE TESTING DONE?
All that is required to test for these diet-related genes is a simple saliva sample. The sample will be taken by you or by healthcare professional and sent to the laboratory for analysis.
C) HOW LONG DO I NEED TO FOLLOW THE ADVICE FOR?
Your test results are not intended to form a short-term "diet". The information provided in your report, combined with the nutritional plan created, will empower you with knowledge so that you can continually make the best dietary choices on a daily basis.
D) HOW WILL THE RESULTS BENEFIT ME?
You receive personalized, thorough results with specific, actionable information on what exercise to DO, foods to EAT and supplements to TAKE. You will start seeing the results you want. No more fad diets to try, pills to buy or books to read. One test, one time. It’s not about working out.
A) WHY GET SPORTS SPECIFIC DNA TESTING?
Performance in sports is unquestionably affected by your genes! A simple DNA test detects certain advantages or barriers hidden in your genes. The results will be indicative of the individualized guidelines, required to improve your performance and your general physical condition.
B) WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TESTS INCLUDED IN A FITNESS DNA TEST?
The DNA HEALTH WELLNESS offer a range of DNA test profiles which can identify genetic factors that affect:
• Power and Endurance: Examines genes that code for physiological factors such as circulation, blood pressure control, strength, cardio-pulmonary capacity, mitochondrial synthesis, muscle fibre type specialisation, muscle fibre hypertrophy, cardiac output, muscle metabolism, and adaptability to training regimes.
• Recovery: Examines genes involved in recovery, identifying predisposition to inflammation and free radical stress and identifying optimal recovery times and nutritional strategies.
• Tendon Pathology: Examines genes involved in coding for structural integrity of soft tissue, helping to identify predisposition to soft tissue injury including Achilles tendonitis.
C) CAN THESE TESTS IMPROVE PERFORMANCE?
Yes these genes can increase performance for all levels of athletes. Exercising too much may create diminished return or cause your body to get into compensatory mode. If you do it right, you don't have to do it as much.
D) WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE TEST?
Benefits of Personalized Sports Genetics and the Optimum Athletic Performance DNA Analysis :-
• Ability to customize training programs to optimize performance based on your genetic makeup.
• Reduce risk of personal injury.
• Understand nutritional requirements that are relevant specifically to you and your personal DNA.
• Identify sports related activities your genetics can help you excel in.
• Identify sports activities to avoid.
E) IF I GET FITNESS DNA TEST, WILL THE RESULTS HELP ME TO DECIDE IF I SHOULD BE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE?
There is not a simple Yes or No response to this question. There are many factors that go into determining who will be a professional athlete and who will not. Knowing your Fitness-DNA will not tell you if you will become a professional athlete. But knowing it may indicate that if you do become a professional athlete, considering all these other factors, you will get to know which class of activities, endurance/aerobic vs strength/power sports, at which you are most likely to attain the highest levels of performance.
Impressively, in just over a week following their recommendations, I went down a clothes size, which convinces me that knowing your body’s needs at a genetic level is a huge leap forward!
"Easy way to stay Healthy"
Just 2 minutes of your life can make you a healthy person. Without any complicated and those fad diets I just found a perfect and the easiest way to stay healthy. With their weight and nutritional program I got to know what foods I should pay more attention to and how to eat right. Thank you DHW for providing me the ultimate solution to a healthy life.
I have been using the info from my DHW Sports report test for 8 months and I have noticed positive difference. I would say the learnings made a big impact and I have been training for over 10 years now and have tried loads of different fads so this programme helped me refine my work-out. Learning that I am prone to soft tissue injury has actually helped a lot.
"Rate of progress improved"
I’ve always thought that concentrating on power activities would yield the best results, but my DNA surprised me – it turns out my body would be more responsive to a mix of power and endurance training. I spoke to DNA HEALTH WELLNESS about the results and put several changes into place e.g. reducing rest period between sets, and focussing on supersets. As a result, I’ve seen my rate of progress improve steadily.
Despite trying many diets, none worked for long term weight control. Of course I tried a number of different diets over the years, but every diet ended in a similar way. Then, I came across DNA HEALTH WELLNESS, while looking for a healthy weight loss solution without starving and long-term dieting. Their weight loss program provided me with the permanent -solution to weight loss looking into my genes and today I have lost 12 kgs.
"Excited with my DNA test results"
I often wondered what was best for my body: what food, what activity suits me best, did my body lack anything and what should I eat and do to feel good and be healthy? But I never got a real answer. I have tried and tested various things, activities, types of diets, taken various dietary supplements such as vitamins and minerals, but never with confidence that I was doing the right thing. I am excited with my DNA test results because now I know where I need to be careful and how to eat in the future. I have to increase the intake of calcium and vitamin D and eat accordingly.
