Genetic Assessment

Know Your DNA and find out what genes are optimized to work for you and which ones are working against you!

While lifestyle choices and nutrition can make a big difference in supporting a healthy heart, blood pressure, cholesterol and cardiovascular performance it can be affected by your genetics, see details below!

Consumer genetic testing is the single most exciting health and wellness breakthrough of the twenty-first century! It’s fast and easy! And best of all, the results can give you information about your body and how it ages that has never before been available.

It was becoming apparent that one of the greatest advantages of having this knowledge may be the ability to make better, more personalized decisions, decisions that could lead to healthier, happier lives. This knowledge, in turn, could allow better, more appropriate decisions, such as diet, and dietary supplements’

This field of research led to an understanding of SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), tiny variants in our genes that cause them to function differently from the norm. Some of these differences are not at all relevant to our health.

For instance, some SNPs determine our hair color, or our blood type—these aren’t aspects of our physiology we normally give much thought to, because they don’t relate directly to our state of health.

Other SNPs, however, have profound effects on various biochemical pathways. They may change the balance or production, or lack of production of key proteins—or regulate the way other processes in our bodies function. These proteins and functional changes, in turn, have long-term effects on how our bodies function and even how they age.

Gene SNP’s Assessed:

Cardiovascular Gene     MTRR The CoQ10 Gene NQ01
Cardiovascular Enzyme Gene MTHFR The SuperOxide Gene SOD2
Cholesterol Oxidation Gene PON-1 The Vitamin D Gene     VDR
Cholesterol Gene ApoB Antioxidative Gene GPX1
Blood Pressure Gene CYP11B2 The Detox Gene EPHX
Inflammation Response Gene TNF-ALPHA Collagen Health Gene MMP-1

 

All of these gene SNPs directly or indirectly affect cardiovascular health

A DNA Test That Is As Unique As Your Client

The DNA test looks for variations or Gene SNPs in an individual’s DNA code that can be a foundation of health, are common, and are actionable with nutrition. In short, there is no bad news because the individual can choose to do something about their disadvantaged DNA by matching nutrition to their disadvantaged DNA to get optimal support. This is what sets this DNA test apart.

Many “genetic” products do not require a DNA test. Without a DNA test there is no way to provide solutions customized to your genetics. We feel that starting with your unique DNA and its coding problems (SNP’s) is where to start.
 

VDR SNP

The Vitamin D receptor SNP disadvantages your ability to use vitamin D which is critical for health.

EPHX SNP

Determines the ability for detoxification from pollutants, pesticides, alcohol, tobacco, and other foreign

NQO1 SNP

Determines which form of CoQ10 (ubiquinone, ubiquinol) your body needs to help fight free radicals, especially important for heart and mitochondrial health

SOD2 SNP

Disadvantages a person’s ability to eliminate toxic superoxide free radicals which can damage breast and prostate tissue

GPX1 SNP

Disadvantages a person’s ability to eliminate hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radicals which can damage lung and breast tissue

MMP-1 Gene

This SNP can degrade collagen which concentrates in cartilage, ligaments, bone and skin.

MTRR SNP

Can disadvantage the ability keep homocysteine in check to preserve cardiovascular health

MTHFR SNP

Determines which form of folic acid (folate or L-methylfolate) your body needs to help clear homocysteine.

TNF SNP

Can disadvantage the healthy regulation of the inflammatory response

PON-1 Gene

Disadvantages the protection of LDL from oxidation

CYP11B2 Gene

Disadvantages maintaining blood pressure and artery flexibility in normal ranges

ApoB Gene

Disadvantages maintaining healthy blood lipids and glucose tolerance and healthy lipid response after meals
