Do you feel that your progress is halted? Are you confused by the discrepancy in the myriad of advice that is given for weight loss and sports performance? Our genetic testing services can help you to control your weight and to optimize your workout programs
Your genetic makeup may tell you more about yourself than you think. Several genes have been identified relating to physiological and psychological responses to stressors and lifestyles, such as BDNF for Social stress sensitivity or ADORA2A for sleep quality in response to caffeine. Persometrics offers not only raw data and what they mean but our reports give you steadfast, actionable, information for improved well-being, each report targeting a specific aspect of health.
Are you looking to improve the efficiency of your workout? Do you feel your progress is halted? Learn what sports genomics can you do for you.
Sports genomics is a relatively new scientific discipline that has focused on the study of genetic markers associated with athletic genetic performance. Information derived from DNA profiling can indicate both advantages and genetic barriers that reflect on the athletic performance phenotype.
Personalized and individualized performance improvement strategies to enhance and exploit the genetic advantages or overcome genetic barriers can be implemented to optimize the physical fitness, sports performance and health of an athlete. The DNA test kit from Persometrics provides requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you a report to tell you about your muscle fiber type, your VO2-max, your risk of injury, and finally your energy and metabolic efficiency.
The genes analyzed are ACE; ACTN3; BDKRB2; COL1A1; and PPARA.
Seek betterment of physical and mental health through nutrition and sports.
Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. With the advances in genome research and investigations into genetic variations now it's known that up to 70% of body weight variability is down to our genes and that the personal genetic constitution is involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a diet, appetite, lipid over-absorption, adipogenesis, thermogenesis, among others.
With the use of nutrigenomics we aim at designing personalized diet and lifestyle programs that have the potential to achieve optimum nutrient content, based on the current understanding of your genetic profile and your individual nutrient requirements. The DNA test kit from Persometrics requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you a report to tell you about your fat and carbohydrate sensitivity, weight loss ability, and list recommended diets and physical activities. The genes analyzed are FTO, PPARG, ADRB2, ACTN3, and ACE.
