Hi Friends of Oompf, it’s Alvan here. Today we will be talking about DNA and how being aware of your DNA makeup can help you make informed decisions in regards your lifestyle.
Every single person in this world has a different and unique genetic makeup that influences their physical attributes, their personality and traits and even susceptibility to certain diseases. However, did you know that your DNA can also shed light on your fitness and nutrition levels or tendencies, for example- a predisposition to a deficiency of a certain vitamin, or one’s efficiency in losing weight. Yes- for certain people it may be harder to lose weight compared to someone else who may lead a similar lifestyle to them and this all boils down to your DNA code.
In order to help our clients here at Oompf make accurate decisions about their future health and fitness based on their genetic makeup, we have decided to partner up with DNAcode, a DNA testing company that provides you with insights pertaining specifically to your:
1. Weight Loss Ability
4. Response to Exercise
Upon completing a quick, non-evasive swab test, your DNA will be sent to DNAcode’s scientific laboratories where it will be tested for the above points. Your personal report will then be emailed directly to you within 4-6 weeks and you may decide if you want to share this with your personal trainer so that he/she can advise you on certain changes you may want to make to your lifestyle/ diet to efficiently achieve your goals.
It is important to note that you are not able to change your genes and this report only serves to advise you on behavioural change that can help you take advantage of what your genes say about your body.
Disclaimer: The test will not be able to identify susceptibility to diseases. It only focuses on wellness and lifestyle genes that are actionable. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to retain data accuracy, and to ensure the use of the information, DNAcode uses a range of technical, physical and administrative, HIPAA-compliant, measures to protect the information they collect about their members.
