 DNA Test

Most weight loss companies customize their programs based only on the most basic personal information such as height, weight, and gender. GenoVive takes customization much further by using genetic testing to design the best diet for your patient’s unique metabolism. Our genetic code determines all of our body’s characteristics, including the way our body metabolizes food and responds to exercise. Knowing our genetic predispositions is the key to an effective customized weight loss program. That’s why understanding our individual genetic variations is essential to choosing the best foods and types of physical activity that our body needs. The genetic test provides details about how our body processes fats and carbohydrates and how it responds to physical activity. Some variants indicate decreased carbohydrate metabolism, while others identify individuals who are more likely to have issues with dietary fat. Other variants may indicate that some individuals require a higher intensity of physical activity to shed resistant belly fat. The GenoVive Nutrition and Fitness Genetic Profile Report provides insight into your patient’s individual SNPs and how their meal and exercise program is designed to work with their DNA. The GenoVive Nutrition and Fitness Genetic Test provides the key to unlocking personal weight loss solution. Our DNA helps design  personalized nutrition program to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight as part of a healthier lifestyle. It’s our DNA that makes our body different. Once your patient understand how their body works, they will be empowered for success!

DNA Kit

GenoVive’s scientist analyze your patient’s DNA in our CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) certified lab. Your patient’s genetic information will be held in strictest confidence per HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Guidelines. Upon review of the test results,  the DNA sample will be destroyed in accordance with local, state and federal guidelines.

DNAKitInstruction

Your GenoVive DNA Sample Kit package contains 1 pre-labeled return envelope, 1 DNA Sample kit envelope, 1 plastic envelope, 2 sterile swabs and information  and forms.
Rinse:Thoroughly rinse your mouth with warm water. Swab: Carefully remove sterile swabs from sleeves. Press firmly and rotate swab several times against the inside of your mouth on one cheek. Repeat with the second swab on the other side. Dry: Stand swabs with the tips up in a clean drinking cup or glass. Allow them to dry for 15 minutes. Pack: Place the 2 dried swabs into the plastic envelope with the blue flap at the top. Remove the clear coating and seal the envelope. Place your plastic envelope inside the kit envelope. Mail: Place the kit envelope containing your sealed plastic swab envelope into the provided pre-labeled mailing envelope and send it to GenoVive’s lab where your DNA sample will be analyzed.

The GenoVive Nutrition and Fitness Genetic Profile Report

A DNA test offers valuable insight about your patient’s unique nutrition and fitness needs. By combining their genetic test results with their personal information such as age, gender, height, and weight, GenoVive will determine the diet and exercise plan that will work best for them. Their Nutrition and Fitness Genetic Profile Report will explain the results for each genetic marker we test. It will also give them simple, practical diet and exercise programs that put this knowledge to work for them. Our goal is to give your patients the information they need to make optimal lifestyle choices and achieve fitness goals.

Section1Section One: Overview The first section of the report gives the specific results for each of the 22  genetic markers tested. Section One gives an overview of what these results indicate about optimizing nutrition and fitness based on specific genetic traits. Easy to understand charts review what the test results suggest for optimizing macronutrient intake and exercise programs. Section One also gives an overview of how genes make individuals unique in terms of nutritional and fitness needs, as well as how they can affect behavioral traits related to health and wellness. This simple explanation covers the vocabulary used in the rest of the report and points to resources for those who want a deeper understanding of.    
Section2new Section Two: Nutrition Section Two explains in greater detail what the genetic test results reveal about your patient’s nutritional needs. This section offers a practical guide to optimize nutrition based on genetic information obtained from the DNA test, as well as other important factors such as height, weight, age, gender and activity level. The proportion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins is important to optimal energy level. Section Two offers specific caloric and serving units to target five different activity levels. This allows the patient or client to adjust their nutritional intake based on changing levels of physical activity.

Section Three: Fitness Related Results

Section Three explains what the test results suggest about the need for intensity and duration of weekly exercise. Based on their genetic predispositions, some individuals require a greater quantity and intensity of weekly activity to remain fit. Others can achieve the same results with more moderate intensity exercise for shorter periods.

This section also examines what the genetic results suggest about which exercises and sports the individual may be best suited for genetically. Key genetic markers inform on which types of activities an individual may find easier and may excel at, and which ones will be more challenging. For example, specific genotypes for certain markers are correlated with an ability to perform best at activities which require endurance, such as long distance running, while other suggest a greater ability to excel at activities requiring intense bursts of energy, such as sprinting.

Section Three concludes with a discussion about what the test reveals about the best methods of resistance training for the individual. Some individuals will experience better results with heavier loads and shorter durations, while others will get more from using lighter loads and longer durations.

Section4Section Four: Genetics and Behavior Section Four discusses how our genes and mood influence our behavior and food choices. Mood can play a significant role in our ability to make healthy food choices. It is know that when we are in positive mood, we make healthier food choices. However, when we are in negative mood we tend to indulge in food  that is either high in sugar or fat.
