What will the DNA test tell me?
Last updated January 11, 2023
Genes are our body's blueprints and control every function in your body. This includes how you use and absorb nutrients. A gene mutation (i.e. change) can impact how the gene works. When this happens, corresponding vitamins and minerals are absorbed, metabolized, or utilized improperly. When we identify a mutation, your dose or nutrient type is adjusted accordingly to bypass or support these inefficiencies. DNA analysis can reveal which vitamins and minerals your body needs, and which dosages are best.Our DNA test looks at genes, very specifically SNPs (single nucletotide polymorphisms). These genes code for 3D protein structures called enzymes. Enzymes drive reactions forward. Genes become relevant to human health because these SNPs can change how well enzymes work, something called enzyme kinetics.
