Services like genetic analysis can help develop a practice and its wellness program by introducing patients to advantages of testing and improved health outcomes.
Some diet-regulated genes (and their normal, common variants) are likely to play a role in:
- Onset, Incidence, Progression and/or severity of chronic diseases
Dietary intervention, based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype can be used to prevent, mitigate or remedy chronic disease.
The nutraMetrix®️ Gene SNP DNA Analysis is a comprehensive kit that provides a laboratory analysis of specific gene variants in your genetic material (DNA) that have been found to influence health. In combination with interpretation from your health professional, nutraMetrix®️ Gene SNP DNA Analysis provides valuable information about gene expression and its impact on factors like cardiovascular, endocrine and mental/emotional health. In addition, nutraMetrix®️ Gene SNP DNA Analysis also looks at select nutrients and fitness factors that may contribute to chronic health concerns including obesity.
How Does It Work?
In the convenience of your health professional’s office, a sample is collected from your cheek cells, which contain your DNA. The swabs are put into the provided, specialized collection container after drying. Send the swabs with the Genetic Assessment Request Form and the Consent Form in the included mailing tube provided in the kit to the processing laboratory. (S&H not included)
Once at the certified laboratory, DNA is extracted from your swabs and then prepared for analysis. The DNA is analyzed using the latest genotyping technology to give the most accurate results. Once all of this data is compiled, it is entered into a sophisticated, algorithm-based computer software program that generates a confidential, easy-to-follow Gene SNP Health Action Plan to be reviewed by the health professional or a qualified staff provider and the patient. Typically, it takes four to six weeks for you to receive your Gene SNP Analysis results.

How Genes Affect You
No two people have the same fingerprint. Like our fingerprints, our genetic variations are unique identifiers which make us different from every other person. It’s the variations in genes that make us who we are. From our gender; the color of our hair, eyes and skin; the types of foods that work best with our bodies; and even the type of exercise designed to maximize our individual performance, our genes are the instruction manual for the creation and maintenance of our bodies.
Our genes are composed of combinations of protein bases. While there are only four possible bases, they can be combined in billions of ways to code for countless functions in the body. These four bases make up the DNA alphabet and combine to form words and phrases that give instructions to your body for everything from how your cells function to the color of your hair. Sometimes, when cells in the body replicate to make new cells, mistakes are made and a gene that was supposed to code for the word now reads By changing just one letter or just one base, the gene now has a totally new meaning and function. These variations are called single nucleotide polymorphisms (or SNPs).
These small variations in DNA are expressed in many ways. They can influence how we metabolize food and what types of exercise are best suited for our bodies. By identifying our own unique gene variations, we can customize lifestyle approaches and nutritional supplementation to maximize our genetic potential promoting optimal health never before achieved.
Obtains genetic sample through a cheek swab administered by your Health Care Professional
Evaluates 48 genes and 61 SNPs spanning several different areas of health
Evaluates diet, lifestyle, exercise, cardiovascular and mental emotional markers of health
Delivers a comprehensive Weight & Wellness Report with concrete suggestions from your health practitioner for maintaining your optimal health potential.
Based on a careful analysis of your genetics, diet and lifestyle your health practitioner will recommend the best products & services to meet your health goals.
While your DNA does not change, your lifestyle does, and our program is designed to help you maximize your health potential.
Many other companies obtain the sample through saliva rather than a buccal swab like Gene SNP DNA Analysis. Buccal Swabs are considered the preferred way to ensure adequate samples and the Gene SNP patented swab holder ensures the protection of the sample.
Often competitors evaluate fewer SNPs (often 12-20) and only one or two different health areas or offers insight into non-health related variations like curly hair and eye color. You would have to purchase several different kits in order to get the comprehensive analysis provided by Gene SNP. In addition, Gene SNP DNA Analysis supports your health practitioner with tools to interpret your results. Some competitors leave it up to you to do the research!
Most other genetic analyses do not offer supplements and only Gene SNP offers Isotonix® products carefully selected by your healthcare provider who knows more about your unique needs and goals.
