DNA Health® tests for genetic variations that are known to have a significant effect on health and susceptibility to chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, cancer, neural tube defects, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, amongst others. Nutrigenomics research has shown that individualized diet and lifestyle choices do have a significant effect on the expression of these genes – but this also depends on early detection and appropriate intervention.
The DNA Health test is designed to optimise well-being and health by personalising lifestyle and diet choices and, where necessary, using supplements tailored to offset any particular nutritional deficit based on specific gene variants.
The DNA Health approach assists the healthcare practitioner in establishing the optimal nutrition necessary for good health, longevity and disease risk mitigation. Diet is a key factor in determining genomic stability as it impacts on all relevant pathways: exposure to dietary carcinogens, biotransformation, DNA repair and synthesis, and apoptosis. Current recommended dietary allowances for vitamins and minerals are based largely on the prevention of diseases of deficiency. However, because diseases of lifestyle are partly caused by damage to DNA it stands to reason that we should focus our attention on defining optimal requirements of key minerals and vitamins for preventing genomic instability.
The DNA Health Test Report provides:
- The level of impact of any genetic variants identified
- An explanation of their impact on health
- Appropriate nutritional and lifestyle recommendations
The results are divided in sections of key metabolic function, so that genetic weaknesses and strengths within a functional area can be easily identified.
