• Why you crave certain foods?
• Why you don't feel full even after a large meal?
• If you respond better to endurance over strength exercise?
• If the vitamin supplements you take are effective for you?
Using the latest discoveries in genetic research, the AGS Health & Wellness Test profiles and analyzes many of the variations that make your genome unique in terms of optimal health and athletic performance.
You will discover what diet and exercises are best for you, find out which nutrients you may be deficient in, and learn about your appetite and food sensitivities. Possessing the knowledge of your genetic information can empower you to make informed decisions about your body and lifestyle.
AGS Health and Wellness Genetic Test, examines the following, which are influenced by your genes:
We are all unique genetically. Your genes can explain why you react differently to exercise regimens and essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins and vitamins. Your genes also determine your taste perception, food preferences, satiety responsiveness and metabolism.
That’s why some people, for example, are more likely to crave sugary and fatty foods and lack the sense of satiety. Some people try to lose weight by eating a low-fat diet, but that approach may not suit them if they are genetically more sensitive to the amount of sugar they consume rather than the amount of fat. The same idea applies to exercise effectiveness. For example, some people who are more resistant to burning fat during endurance exercise may complain that exercise does not “work” for them.
Genetic variants may interfere with the absorption and metabolism of vitamins and nutrients. For example, some people are unable to convert folic acid from supplements and folate from natural food sources into L-methylfolate, the active form of the B vitamin. These people could improve their health if they take L-methylfolate supplements instead.
