3 UNRAVEL YOUR DNA
Your genes determine everything about you, from your eye colour to your height. Genetic testing is no longer just used to determine paternity. Now practitioners are using this information to offer personalised health and fitness solutions. All it requires is a simple swab of your cheek.
Struggling to lose weight? Fitness levels reached a plateau? Your genes are probably the reason. Companies like the 3X4 clinic and DNAnlysis use the sample from your cheek to determine your genetic make-up. Based on this, they can tailor fitness and health solutions. They can tell you whether your body will react better to high-intensity workouts or if you’re more likely to see results with an endurance activity such as running.
For years now, healthcare practitioners have been using genetic testing to establish whether patients were likely to develop life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. In 2019, we’re using our genes to take better care of our health and fitness.
Based on your DNA, practitioners can ascertain what you need for optimal health and nutrition. Learn how to manage your weight, improve your athletic performance and get clearer skin, all with one comprehensive summary.
