Genes are the blueprint of life. They map out our individual characteristics. Our individual forms from complexion, hair, height, or special abilities such as tongue rolling are all designed by genes. Only with a simple switch of sequence variation of four nucleotides – A, T, C and G, each person gets a different appearance, function of inner organs, enzyme capability, risks to develop disease, reaction to chemicals or the environment.

The Gene SNP Test is carried out to determine genetic disorders called SNP (pronounced snip), which is a genetic change, or variation, that can occur when a nucleotide within a person’s DNA sequence is changed. This helps in identifying the onset of possible diseases and the various functions of the different body systems.

What will you get from Gene SNP*

  • Know your genetic risk of developing cancers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer, so that you know what to do to prevent or lower the impact of the genetic risk.
  • Know the risk of developing most common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, high blood cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease so that you can design a new lifestyle that helps reduce the genetic risk for these diseases.
  • Know your metabolism and waste elimination rate as well as level of necessary enzymes so that you understand better about your body and thus can choose a better and healthier lifestyle.
  • Get your customized diet/nutrition, lifestyle and supplement plan personalized just for you.

What is the process?

Collect saliva into a tube until the fill-line marked and send this sample to the lab. A genetic analysis is then carried out, using the most advanced technology for genetic testing, which has been certified from CLIA College of American Pathologists and CAP. This process takes approximately 4 weeks and all results are kept confidential.

The Gene SNP is primarily focused on finding your genetic health risks. By understanding these genetic risks, you will be able to make little changes in your lifestyle for bigger health benefits. Once you understand the map of your life, you can then map out how you will live as if you draw your own Life Code.

* Depending on the chosen package sent to the lab

Advanced Gene Test and NutriFit Gene InsightTM

This test can indicate the risk of developing up to 76 types of genetic diseases that are caused by single gene. These include Thalassemia, an inherited blood disorder and congenital deafness, to detect abnormalities or mutations of genes that are passed on from generation to generation.

■ Evaluates 9 (for men) and 10 (for women) drug responses including caffeine, immunosuppressive drugs, blood fat reducing drugs and other various medications to assess the risk of severe, life threatening reactions to medications and to adjust the administration and dosage of various medications to suit each individual.

■ Assesses the risk of developing 17-24 complex diseases (base on nationality), some of which include colon cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and heart diseases. This will enable you to map out the correct lifestyle to reduce the risk of developing these diseases in you and your loved ones.

■ Provides an insight into the nutrition and the type of food that is suitable for you, maintains a balanced metabolism, resolves deficiencies in diet and eating habits, indicates the trend of cholesterol and other fat levels in the blood, lack of vitamins, and customizing exercise programs for each individual.
