What kinds of information does the DNA Health panel provide?
*Your body’s unique predisposition towards inflammation and oxidative stress with specific targeted ideas on how to detect and use diet, lifestyle and in some cases supplementation to improve your body’s ability to deal with these significant stressors.
*Potential detoxification weaknesses: It is the job of the liver to metabolize environmental, endogenous and dietary toxins. Some of us have a genetic weak link in phase 1 or phase 2 liver detoxification (or both). Testing your detoxification gene variations that impact your body’s unique ability to rid itself of toxins can help provide you with the knowledge about what personalized dietary components could support these processes most powerfully.
*Methylation which has the potential to impact a great deal from heart disease to mental health to cancer prevention: This panel looks not only at MTHFR gene that is so widely talked about these days but several genes that together impact your risk potential for methylation deficiencies. This information can help you determine specific diet, lifestyle, and in some cases supplementation protocol that would be uniquely suited for you.
*Genes that impact bone health, cholesterol metabolism, insulin resistance, sensitivity to salt, caffeine and lactose: Are you confused about conflicting information on these topics? This panel gives us a great deal of information on what dietary interventions in these areas could be specifically useful for your unique genetic make up.
