Sports genomics and endocrinological testing for exercise through DNA and hormone analysis
DNA and hormone testing is no longer restricted to professional athletes. Good hormone balance means good physical workout and by testing your hormone levels we can quantify how efficient your routines are before your exercise efficiency can be measured in your strength or speed.
As for the relevance of DNA testing, it is known that some people get better results in a short time when doing physical activity while others need more intensity or more time to get the same results. Genomic research has identified relevant genes related to physical activity requirements. There are also genetic variations that tell us what kind of sports activities (endurance or sprint) is more favorable.
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.
