Using the latest discoveries in genetic research, the AGS Health & Wellness Genetic Test profiles and analyzes many genes that make your genome unique in terms of optimal health and athletic performance. Possessing the knowledge of your genetic information can empower you to make informed decisions about your body and make lifestyle choices in areas such as diet, exercise, nutrition, and weight management that are suitable for you, and only you.
To veracity, AGS runs an individuals specimen twice. The results are compared and conclusions are drawn.
We, at AGS, want you to be aware because not all genetic tests are the same nor do all genetic testing companies have the same goal in mind. Some Genetic Tests that have a “cheap” price actually sell all or part of your personal information to make up for the actual costs of the test! That’s how they can lower the cost to you. Because AGS Health is in the business of genetic testing, we are approached frequently by several companies asking us to sell our clients genetic information to boost our revenue. But, we will NEVER do that.
The two biggest genetic data collection companies sell millions of dollars worth of data each year to 3rd parties. This is precisely why these companies can sell their products for such a low price.
So why would 3rd parties want your genetic data and why would they pay so much money for it? Here are some of the answers:
AGS adheres to strict confidentiality and privacy laws that ensure that genetic information is kept private or only shared with your physician. AGS does not sell or transfer any personal data to any third parties.
We suggest you read our 3 part blog series 'No Free Lunch When Shopping For Genetic Tests--Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3'.
Once your test results are in, AGS offers a free consultation with a nutritionist. You may also review your test results with your personal trainer or physician.
Our test does not tell you about your ancestry but rather crucial information about yourself that can help you live a healthier life style and reach optimal health goals.
There is no difference in the genetic information obtained from these 3 different collection methods. There are many reasons why a cheek swab is
The AGS Health & Wellness Genetic test is like no other genetic test on the market today. We evaluate far more genes than the other companies all of which are directly related to overall health, diet and fitness.
Once AGS receives the sample, your final results will be ready in 2-3 weeks. You will receive an email with a secured, encrypted, downloadable PDF document requiring a passcode to retrieve the report information.
Everyone. Newborns, in the beginning stages of life, to elderly adults can benefit from a genetic test. Genetic testing is often viewed as a relief, eliminating some of the uncertainty surrounding their health. These results may also help doctors make recommendations for treatment or monitoring, and give people more information for making decisions about their, and their family's health.
All DNA is constructed of either adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T) for the base pairs just in different sequences. These sequences are what make up a persons genetic information. In 2003 the Human Genome Project was able to sequence and map the entire human genome. This blueprint laid out the foundation needed for AGS to then determine the genes in direct relation to optimal health and athletic performance. All genes selected for inclusion in each report are highly studied and validated with clinical relevance by our scientific review board.
The AGS Health & Wellness test focuses on those genes which are most relevant to your diet, nutrition and exercise performance. Ancestral testing companies provide information on the genealogy of where the tested person is from
AGS adheres to strict confidentiality and privacy laws that ensure that genetic information is kept private or only shared with your physician. Unlike several other genetic companies, AGS does not sell or transfer any personal data to any third parties.
Confidentiality is a respected part of the AGS code of ethics. Your privacy is our number one priority. We pledge to uphold the highest standards of bioethics and maintain rigorous policies and procedures to keep your data safe and secure. We won’t even share your DNA data with your physician without your permission and we wont ever sell your data. That is our strict policy. We guarantee it.
Some laws (such as GINA and HIPAA) limit how personal information can be used, but none truly protects privacy. And, that may not even be possible, because genetic information is unique to every individual. It cannot be de-identified; even if separated from obvious identifiers like name and Social Security number, it is still forever linked to only one person in the world.
If your genetic data got in the hands of the wrong people, such as a future employer or a life insurance policy evaluator, the outcome could negatively affect you and your blood relatives.

A DNA test uses genetic material from your cells to determine traits. All DNA is constructed of either adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T) for the base pairs just in different sequences. These sequences are what make up a person’s genetic information.
