DNA sequencing has opened the door to personalised approaches to health and fitness, enabling a more intelligent approach to training, recovery and performance. This report presents elements of your unique DNA profile that have been shown to affect athletic performance. The kit includes the base DNA test.
LifeCode Gx – Athlete DNA
1 diagnostic kit plus report
A DNA Test Kit is provided to collect a sample of cheek cells from which DNA is extracted and analysed. The DNA Test Kit includes:
- An instruction leaflet
- A cheek swab and mini-test tube
- A stabilising tablet
- A consent form
- Return packaging and postage (UK only)
It takes just 1 minute to collect the sample, place the swab in the test tube with the stabilising tablet, complete and sign the consent form and place everything in the return packaging provided.
If you would benefit from a 30 min consultation to better understand your results, you can order this separately from our shop.
The personalised genetic results are grouped into three topic areas:
Train – tailor a programme that will be most effective for you to support cardio-vascular adaption, strategic fuelling and structural strength
Recover – build resilience and reduce your risk of injury and illness by controlling inflammation, reducing oxidative stress and optimising sleep
Perform – balance stress and stimulation when it matters most – to achieve your personal best
- results summarised at the front of each section
- personalised, colour coded genotype results
- gene function and SNP impact descriptions
- clinically relevant SNPs presented in the context of sport
- nutrition and lifestyle recommendations
- links to research evidence
