You’ve no doubt seen on TV the variety of DNA home test kits available on the market. Learning your ancestry is a wonderful thing for sure but, wouldn’t it be great if there was something health specific that you could do with that information? There is some good news if that is of interest to you!
We inherit genetic traits from our parents. Some are visible like eye colour, hair colour and overall appearance. These are no-brainers, locked in our genetic code and there’s nothing we can do about that unless we colour our hair, use coloured contacts or undergo surgery. There are also diseases that we inherit and, sadly there is little we can do about that either except to adopt a healthy lifestyle, making sure we eat the correct nutrient rich foods, vitamins and minerals. If sadly that’s not enough and the disease presents itself, you treat and fight it.
Do you know that there are genetic components that can be evaluated, and your body supplemented accordingly, to ensure your system is given exactly what your genetics dictates resulting in efficient and effective use of vitamins and minerals? The advancements in genetic science are mind-blowing and the right DNA home test kit can arm you with the information and materials to do so.
While mapping the first human genome cost nearly $3 billion, genetic testing has become so commonplace that key genes can now be assessed affordably and have become routine for use in medical practices, to trace ancestry, and for targeted human nutritional decisions.*
Genetic research has determined that there are 16 Genes and 18 SNPs or “Snips” that are deemed ACTIONABLE. ACTIONABLE GENES are genes where there is an “action” you can take. SNP’s are a Single Nucleotide Poly-morphism, they are the most common type of genetic variation among people. Each SNP represents a substitution of a single DNA building block, called a nucleotide. These variations in your genes affect certain functions in your body. The Uforia Science DNA home test kits identify the Snips, take the information and put it to use based on results of your unique profile.
THE UFORIA DNA ASSESSMENT TESTS ACTIONABLE SNPS ON 16 GENES THAT AFFECT THESE HEALTH AND WELLNESS AREAS:**
ApoB: Healthy Lipid gene
ATP5C1: Mitochondrial gene
CRP: Healthy Inflammatory gene
EPHX1 / DETOXIFICATION: Liver Health gene
FTO: Healthy Weight gene
MMP-1: Collagen gene
FUT2: Vitamin B12 gene
GSTP1: Oxidative Support gene
IL6: Healthy Immune gene
MTHFR / Homocysteine, Folate: Cardiovascular Health gene
MTRR: Homocysteine / Healthy Heart gene
NQ01: CoQ10 (Energy) gene
PON1: Healthy Lipids gene
SOD2: Free Radical Defence gene
TNF-a: Healthy Inflammatory Response gene
VDR / VITAMIN D: Bone Health gene
This list of information in its entirety isn’t available from standard blood tests. In Canada, it’s almost impossible to get your Doctor to run even an individual Vitamin level blood tests because
a) they’re very expensive and
b) levels change day to day so they’re not necessarily accurate.
For example, do you know if your body is processing Vitamin D properly? The guessing game of what D supplements to take and what dosage can be overwhelming and until now, a guessing game. Take too little and it’s of little benefit. Taking more than you need of any one vitamin can end up peed or pooped down the drain or worse, cause toxicity. Both result in a loss of money without great results to your overall well being.
All of this is why I’ve chosen to bring you information on Uforia Science. Customized nutrition in the exact amounts your bodies genetic code says it needs. No more guesswork and no more wasted money. Feel your best, look your best and let your body tell you exactly what it needs.
I’m available to answer any questions you may have without obligation.
In good health,
