DNA Nutrition Test
Do you want to ensure you are getting the nutrients you need from your diet? Or are you having trouble deciding which supplement you should take? Take this DNA test to find out
- If your body absorbs, breaks down and uses vitamins and minerals properly
- Your risk of potential nutritional deficiencies
- How you can optimize your diet with our revolutionary Genofit app
Do the thousands of nutrition supplements on the market overwhelm you, or do you just want to ensure you have a balanced intake from dietary sources?
Your genetic variation determines how well your body is able to absorb and utilize vitamins and minerals, as there is no “wonder supplement” or “perfect diet” that will work for everyone.
A simple mouth swab is all we need to analyze your DNA and identify simple ways to improve your nutritional balance.
Many genetic variants influence how well we absorb, activate and use specific vitamins and minerals. An understanding of your genetic variation allows you to customize your nutritional planning.
Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy vision, immune function, skin health, bone growth, and reproduction.
- BCO1 – affects activation of vitamin A
Vitamin B6 is necessary for proper carbohydrate metabolism, cognitive development, immune function, skin health, and hemoglobin formation.
- NBPF3 – increases clearance of vitamin B6 from the body
Vitamin B12 is vital for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, as well as DNA synthesis and the metabolism of fatty acids and amino acids.
- FUT2 – reduces absorption of vitamin B12 in the gut
Vitamin C is involved in the production of essential biological molecules, such as collagen and neurotransmitters, as well as immune response, wound healing, absorption of non-heme iron, and acting as an antioxidant to remove toxic byproducts.
- SLC23A1 – decreases vitamin C absorption and distribution
Vitamin D is necessary for regulating cell growth, supporting immune function, reducing inflammation, and maintaining normal bone growth and remodeling.
- CYP2R1 – reduces activation of vitamin D
- GC – reduces efficiency of vitamin D transport and uptake
Vitamin E promotes a healthy immune system, as well as healthy eyes and skin, among other essential metabolic processes.
- APOA5 – influences vitamin E levels
Folate is necessary for proper growth and development, as well as the conversion of the toxic homocysteine amino acid to methionine.
- MTHFD1 – linked to folate-related disorders
- MTHFR – affects activation of folate
Iron is essential for producing hemoglobin, a protein that transports oxygen throughout the body.
- TF – influences iron transport
- TMPRSS6 – influences iron absorption from the diet
Omega-3 fatty acids are vital for normal and healthy metabolism.
- NOS3 – influences triglyceride levels when omega-3 levels are low
