The modern market of health, fitness, nutrition and beauty bombards us every day through various channels with information about the diets of various celebrities, miraculous anti-age products and various methods of fast weight loss and achieving the figure we see on the covers of magazines and Internet portals. All this leads to a kind of information overload, which makes it extremely difficult for the average person to understand what is good for him and how he can achieve the desired goal.
What if science has the answer to those questions?
What is DNA and what is DNA life testing based on?
What are “DNA diet” and “DNA sport” genetic testing protocols?
The DNA diet test provides health professionals with much-needed help in creating guidelines for individualized weight control in an individual. The nutrition and training plan and program created based on the results of this test are uniquely fully adapted to the needs of the individual, and are based on genetically determined specifics in the metabolism of fats and other nutrients characteristic of each individual. While a diet that we consider healthy can bring good results in the context of body weight regulation, body fat percentage and cardiovascular and locomotor system status, it is crucial to note that there are a number of factors that directly affect the potential improvement or deterioration of these parameters. The level of health in a person is the result of the interaction of these factors, and this test allows the precise identification and measurement of each of them. In this way, it is possible to structure an individualized diet and exercise plan and program, or a diet and exercise plan and program according to the measures, needs and characteristics of the individual, instead of using general guidelines that may or may not bring results.
A DNA sport test provides insight into a potential ability of an athlete. By conducting this test, it is possible to optimize the training and selection of exercises performed by the athlete in order to increase his ability, assess the athlete’s susceptibility to injury, create optimal recovery strategies after intense training and competition and create a training plan for a specific body weight goal of the athlete (increasing, decreasing, or maintaining the current condition). This test is useful regardless of whether the athlete is a professional and wants to learn how to maximize their potential, or exercises recreationally and wants to maximize the effect of the training he performs and reach the highest level of fitness. Based on the results of this test, a DNA profile of the athlete is created divided into three categories with regard to different types of sports characteristics – strength and endurance, tendon status (quality of tendon tissue in the body) and recovery after intense activity.
