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. Learn more.
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.
Ever wondered why there are so many conflicting expert opinions regarding the ultimate weight-loss diet? Perhaps it is because a universal diet doesn't exist but that it is down to your genetic constitution. Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. Up to two-thirds of our ability to gain or lose weight is down to our genes, which are involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a given diet, to appetite, lipid over-absorption, and more.
This kit provides actionable results to achieve your ideal weight, identifying lifestyles that are apt for your genetic makeup. The report places you in one of four diet camps: low carb, low carbohydrate, high protein, or balanced according to your genetic makeup.
Tables of foodstuffs specific to your profile are included to aid you in your meal choices. In addition, the report includes a description of the best type of physical exercise for your body.
The DNA test kit from Persometrics requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you with a report to tell you about your fat and carbohydrate sensitivity and weight-loss ability. We list provide recommended diets and physical activities based on your genetic profile. The report gives results and advice on: -Propensity of obesity, -Your satiety in response to food (feeling full), -Fat sensitivity, -Carbohydrate sensitivity, -Cravings, -Weight regain risk, -Your optimal intensity of exercise, -Your optimal type of exercise and -Your optimal diet (proportion of fats, carbohydrates, and protein).
