Health & Wellness Genetic Test
We are all unique genetically. Your genes can explain why you react differently to exercise regimens and essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins and vitamins. Your genes also determine your taste perception, food preferences, satiety responsiveness and metabolism. That's why some people, for example, are more likely to crave sugary and fatty foods and lack the sense of satiety. Some people try to lose weight by eating a low-fat diet, but that approach may not suit them if they are genetically more sensitive to the amount of sugar they consume rather than the amount of fat.
The same idea applies to exercise effectiveness. For example, some people who are more resistant to burning fat during endurance exercise may complain that exercise does not “work” for them. Genetic variants may interfere with the absorption and metabolism of vitamins and nutrients. For example, some people are unable to convert folic acid from supplements and folate from natural sources into L-methylfolate, the active form of the B vitamin. These people could improve their health if they take L-methylfolate supplements instead.
Better health starts with health awareness. Neo-Health Health & Wellness Test examines genes which are most relevant to your overall health, diet and exercise. While you cannot change your genetic makeup, you can take active steps to reduce the risk of certain diseases and optimize your health. Personalized genetic information allows you to focus on the modifiable lifestyle factors such as healthy diet, exercise regimen and appropriate supplement intake.
