If a person went to his/her primary care physician and complained of symptoms of feeling worthless, irritable, insomnia, fatigue, guilt, persistent sadness, anxiety, weight gain or loss, decreased or increased appetite, and loss of interest in regular activities, it is highly probable this individual would leave that office with a diagnosis of Depression and/or a prescription for an antidepressant.

Optimal Nutrition that's Fit for Your Genes

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 1, 2017 8:32:00 AM / by Alex Olson posted in Vitamins, Nutrition 2 min read time

We live in a day and age of many options. Every week there seems to be a new diet fad that everybody is raving about. This week it’s a dubious tea that will supposedly make you drop +10 pounds, next week it’ll be a new mysterious green juice that claims to cleanse your body of “toxins”. These miracle diets often have little to no scientific backing and tend to fade away once their 15 minutes of fame are up and the next diet comes along.

 

Don't get me wrong, there are fad diets that work for some people, but this does not mean they will work for you. If you have tried a diet that completely removed an entire food group such as carbohydrates, you likely gave up on it because it made you miserable. By removing all carbs from your diet and prohibiting any-and-all consumption of them, it probably made you crave them more than you ever did before. You quit the diet plan feeling frustrated. Next, came a day or two of binge eating carbs, followed by a day of guilt because you failed yet another diet and gained weight. What a tragic situation! This is why 'fad diets' quickly become 'yo-yo diets'.

Vitamins Fit for Your Genes

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 26, 2017 11:57:54 AM / by Alex Olson posted in Vitamins 2 min read time

Vitamin Facts:
  • Vitamins are needed for a number of reasons and our bodies would not properly function without them.

  • You may be eating some of the right vitamin-rich foods but maybe not enough of them on a daily basis, which means you are missing essential nutrients.
  • Without these vitamins in your diet, you are putting yourself more at risk for certain diseases and other health conditions.

  • Some people have genetic predispositions for vitamin deficiencies, which means even if you are eating foods filled with vitamins, your body may not be metabolizing these vitamins properly to keep your body healthy.

 

  6,000,000,000 nucleotides +
  20,000 genes + 
  23 chromosomes 
  100% you!  

Find out what your genes are trying to tell you.

 

It’s common knowledge that we’re all genetically unique. Did you know that a study done by Oxford University suggests that of all the DNA in your body, only 8.2% of it is actually functional? Within this 8.2% lie genes that not only determine what you look like on the outside, but also how your body functions on the inside.

 

Finding out what your body truly needs on a genetic level could be beneficial. Let's consider Vitamin A. Some people have trouble converting beta-carotene into its usable form called Vitamin A, or retinol, so it can be used by the body. Our bodies need Vitamin A for important physiological functions involving healthy skin, vision, reducing inflammation, neurological function, and immune system. If you are one of these unfortunate individuals, eating a diet rich in beta-carotene (carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, spinach, etc.) will not serve you very well. The essential nutrients in these foods will just pass through with little to no affect. The solution would be to take a multivitamin containing the converted form of Vitamin A either as a tablet or as a sublingual supplement that can be administered beneath the tongue. It is recommended to consult your physician to confirm a deficiency by a simple micronutritent test (blood draw) to confirm Vitamin A levels becuase too much Vitamin A is not healthy either.

 

No two bodies are created equal, so why should you treat your vitamin supplementation the same as your neighbor? With the AGS Health & Wellness Genetic test, you will unlock your unique genetic potential and finally see what your body is asking you for. You know what they say; knowledge is power, and our test puts all the power right into your hands. Why wait?

What Vitamins Should I Take Daily?

"AGS' Health and Wellness Genetic testing will show YOU which vitamins you may need"


Vitamins are needed for a number of reasons and our bodies would not function without them. On a daily basis we eat foods with vitamins especially fruits and vegetables, but when we don’t eat enough of these foods, we miss essential nutrients. This is a problem because these nutrients can lower our risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, to keep our immune system healthy, and other health conditions.
