We’re excited to offer a new test for your nutrition and fitness optimization: cheek swabs! Cheek swabs are a simple and inexpensive genetic test that can help you tailor your diet and workouts to align with your personal genetics.The tests determine the genotypes and corresponding phenotypes of mutations on genes known to be associated with nutrition or exercise based on compiled scientific and clinical research data. Two tests will be available: one for nutrition and one for exercise and fitness. Contact us for more information to order your own swab test!
The nutrition test results include: matching diet type, BMI/obesity/weight loss, food intake, blood sugar, cholesterol, and potentials. This panel specifically looks for mutations in the following genes:
ACSL5, ADIPOQ, ADRA2A, ADRB2, ADRB3, ANKK1/DRD2, APOA2, BCAA associated PPM1K SNP, BCMO1, CCR3, FABP2, FADS1, FTO, FUT2, GC,HLA-DG2.5, IL21, IRS1, ITGB2, KCTD10, LEPR, LIPC, LPL, MC4R, MCM6, MMAB, MTHFR, MYO9B, NBPF3, NMB, PLIN, PPARG, SLC23A1, TAS2R38.
The exercise and fitness test results include: endurance/VO2, obesity risk, muscle cramping/soreness, resistance training, response to exercise, and risk for various pathologies. This panel specifically looks for mutations in the following genes:
MMP3, NOS3, EDN1, FTO, LEP, LIPC, PPARD, ADRB3, NRF2, PPARGC1A, ADRB2, GABPB1 (NRF2), GABPB1 (NRF2), ACTN3, CCL2, LEPR, MYH7, MYH7, ADRB2, FTO, AMPD1, GDF5, intergenic, MSTN, INSIG2, IL15, LEPR, IL15RA, SLC30A8, GABPB1 (NRF2), GABPB1 (NRF2), PPARGC1A, NRF2, INSIG2.
