Test Overview

Learn how your genes can impact your health, nutrient intake, and even your fitness. A number of genes are now known to influence how our bodies process certain food types (a science known as nutrigenomics). A handful of genes are also implicated in our inherent fitness and performance attributes. Learning as much about this as possible can help guide our training and exercise needs.
