The DNA Wellness Test belongs to the Low Risk General Wellness Tests that are not Medical Devices category. This test is designed to study Genetic Polymorphisms (SNPs) that impact the metabolism of individual nutrients by focusing on nutritional biochemical pathways that may need dietary supplementation. The Test identifies if any fortification is needed through dietary supplementation of specific substances such as vitamins, or other nutritional molecules with physiological effect.
The DNA Wellness Test analyzes a small part of the genome namely the target regions of Polymorphisms (SNPs) selected by us based on literature data of key biochemical pathways of nutritional metabolism and our experimental validation.
Personalized nutrition must take into account the key metabolic pathways in which come into play the quantities and qualities of nutrient intake, absorption patterns, and differences in various enzyme and transporter protein activities dependent on polymorphic genetic variants (SNPs).
Sleep, physical activity, aging, and other body functions are typical multifactorial traits dependent on a triad of factors, including environmental, lifestyle, and genetic. The DNA Wellness Test analyzes SNPs that correlate with these functions in order to extrapolate, through the help of specialists, useful recommendations for lifestyle personalization.
Target SNPs involved at metabolic pathways:
The Test analyzes Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes involved in the metabolism of essential nutrients and therefore affecting dietary requirements of the nutrient.
Individuals carrying an allele associated with an enzyme or transporter deficiency tend to develop deficiencies of the essential nutrient and therefore require specific dietary fortification with a dietary supplement.
In the test result, the various SNPs are listed with their critical metabolic pathway involved.
In order to personalize the lifestyle, SNPs in genes involved food intolerances, on xenobiotic metabolism and antioxidant power and SNPs that impact specific functions of the body are analyzed.
Interpretation of the report should be conducted by specialists, such as a clinical geneticist or clinical physician.
