DNA General Wellness Test
DNA Lifestyle Optimizer Test
Flowchart of the Genomic Tests
- Simplicity: our genomic tests are simple and straightforward processes. Our kit will arrive at your home without any additional cost. You will only need to follow the detailed instructions provided to perform a simple buccal swab (have a look at the kit usage instructions).
- One-time test: once you take our genetic tests, you have a lifetime of information. You don’t need to repeat them as your genetic makeup remains constant throughout your life.
- Data privacy and security: we prioritize the security and privacy of your data. We handle all information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, ensuring that sensitive data is never disclosed. Your personal information is treated with the utmost confidentiality. The data may be used in an aggregated and anonymized form for scientific publications and to improve the test, only if you consent to this usage. Moreover, the biological samples containing your DNA will be destroyed after 180 days.
- Personalized approach: our genomics test allow you to embrace a personalized approach to your well-being: by understanding your genetic makeup, you can take a proactive stance towards your health.
In your DNA Wellness Test report, you will discover a list of 121 observed genetic polymorphisms (SNPs) found in your DNA. Moreover, if you added one or more DNA Lifestyle Optimizer Tests, you will find also the SNPs examined in there. Each SNP will be accompanied by a description of the pathway it is involved in and the specific effect associated in literature with that polymorphism.
Furthermore, the report will provide general information about the characteristics impacted by these genetic variations and, if you have completed the accompanying optional questionnaire, the report will also include personalized recommendations.

While there are no direct health risks associated with genetic tests for general well-being, it is important to be aware of certain aspects. Here are some points to consider:
- Psychological impact: Genetic test results can have psychological implications, so it’s important to be prepared for potential emotional distress or anxiety related to learning about health risks.
- Interpretation complexity: Although the interpretation is intended for a healthcare expert, their meaning is not universally interpreted by the scientific community, and there is no universally accepted scientific evidence regarding their impact on diet, lifestyle choices, and physical activity.
- Limited predictability: genetic tests cannot predict future health outcomes with certainty due to the complex interplay of genetic and non-genetic factors, as well as the limited number of genetic variants analyzed.
- Limited actionability: While genetic information can be valuable, not all variations have clear actionable steps, and lifestyle factors play a significant role in overall well-being. Realistic expectations and professional guidance are necessary for making informed decisions based on the test results.
- Unsuitable advice: your healthcare provider may give you suggestion unsuitable for you, based on this tests. We are not assuming responsibility about this.
- Limited Scope: The genes and variants analyzed by us are solely interpreted for their impact within the context of the test. We do not exclude the possibility that, due to a phenomenon called pleiotropy, they may have other outcomes.
- Genetic Discrimination and Warning: Some analyzed polymorphisms may be interpreted differently in various context, leading to unsought results and potential discrimination. This could affect aspects like determining family relationships, potential health conditions, ethnic associations, and more.
- Data Security: The data collection and processing system is secure, and the DNA sample is discarded 180 days after the analysis. We are not liable for any data breaches resulting from cyber-attacks or rare events beyond the control of our standard security measures.
The DNA Wellness Test is designed for adult individuals who are interested in gaining insights into their genetic makeup to proactively care for their well-being. For individuals with medical conditions, the results must be carefully evaluated by their healthcare provider, and it cannot replace medical advice related to the specific condition.
The DNA Lifestyle Optimizer Tests are designed as additional tests addressed to adult individuals living with specific health conditions (namely CFS, lipedema, lymphedema, and obesity) who want to make better life choices and live better with their condition.

Once the kit arrives at your home, heck if it matches the kit number provided to you at the time of purchase.
The biological sampling kit that will be delivered to your home contains:
Two buccal swabs
Two collection vials
The return envelope
To perform the biological sampling follow this step-by-step simple procedure, detailed also in the kit instructions:
Place the unopened swabs and vials on clean, levels surface.
Remove one swab from its package and firmly scrape the inside of one cheek while rotating the swab for 45 seconds. Note: do not eat, drink, or chew gum for 60 minutes prior swabbing your cheeks.
Open one vial, insert the swab with the tip down, align the black line on the swab to the edge of the vial and snap it off with the swab tip remaining in the vial’s liquid. Note: if the liquid from the vial is spilled, please send in you vial anyway as the sample might still be viable.
Use the second swab and vial to repeat the points 2 and 3 on the opposite cheek.
Ensure that the cap is securely fastened on both vials. Insert both into the plastic bag and then seal the bag.
Place the sealed plastic bag in the return envelope we provided and seal the envelope.
Send the envelope with your biological samples. The return postage is prepaid.
