What is DNA test and how it is done?
When we talk about a DNA test, a DNA Nutrition test or a genetic test, we are talking about the same thing. The test involves three key steps: 1) order online and the kit is delivered to your door 2) collect a tissue sample from the inside of your cheek following instructions enclosed with the test kit 3) send the sample to us using the pre-paid and addressed envelope. The test is performed by the laboratory in the UK to identify specific variations within each gene we analyse. These are called single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs. It is these variations that affect how you process and absorb certain nutrients.
What does our DNA test tell you?
The Human Genome Project -- an international 13-year collaboration that mapped out all of the genes in humans -- discovered approximately 50,000 variances (differences in the individual DNA code) in our genetic code that can make a difference in how your body functions. The interaction between our diet and the nutrients that we get from our diet has led to a field called nutrigenetics, which looks at how our genes determine our response to nutrients in food and beverages. By better understanding an individual's response to specific nutrients, health-care practitioners could deliver more precise and effective nutrition recommendations. In simple terms, DNA test shows how your body processes nutrients from fats to vitamins and consequently reveal how many of which nutrients should be in your ideal diet.
How accurate are DNA tests?
DNA testing is the most accurate form of scientific evidence available. The only time there may be an error would be if your genetic sample is compromised: collection has not been performed according to the instructions, not enough cells collected or if you ate a meal before taking the swab.
How do I get my DNA tested?
- Order a DNA Nutrition test online
- We deliver the kit to your door
- Follow the instructions to collect a tissue sample from the inside of your cheek, using the cotton bud provided
- Send to us using the pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope
- Receive your results within 10-14 business days!
Is a vegan diet healthy long term?
Yes, a well-planned nutrient dense and varied vegan diet is healthy long-term. There some micronutrients that need particular attention such as vitamin B12, iodine, iron, Omega-3, protein and vitamin K. A good vegan diet must contain good sources of these micronutrients and supplement the ones not supplied by the diet.
What is the difference between nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics?
It is important to note the difference between the terms nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics because although these terms are closely related they are not interchangeable. Nutrigenomics investigates how certain foods interact with our genes to affect our health. On the other hand, Nutrigenetics aims to identify the ways in which very small difference in our genes can alter the effects that nutrient intake has on the body.
In simple terms, nutrigenetics examines how your body responds to nutrients based on your genetics.
Nutrigenomics studies how nutrients affect your body’s expression of your genes.
How is nutritional genomics being used to improve health?
Nutritional genomics is a concept that may revolutionize public health. As indicated above, one goal of nutritional genomics is to find genetic markers that reveal significant gene-diet interaction, thus providing tools for personalized and more successful dietary recommendations (“nutrigenomics”).
Nutrigenetics is the field of science that seeks to understand how we metabolise and process different nutrients, based on our unique genetic make-up.
Our DNA can have a significant effect on the way our bodies use nutrients, such as how these nutrients are absorbed, transported, activated, and eliminated from the body. Once our genetic profile has been determined, we can match our nutrient intake to our genetic make-up to achieve enhanced physical and cognitive performance.
