DNA (or deoxyribonucleic acid) is the building block of life, contained within the trillions of cells in your body. A gene is a segment of the DNA molecule that contains the instructions for how, when and where your body makes each of the many thousands of proteins required for life.
You inherited your human DNA (Oh! there's microbial DNA too - in your gut) from your parents, passed down to offspring through generations, which is why it is ‘hereditary’. It's about 99.5% identical among individuals. With the exception of identical twins, all individuals have minor differences in the information contained in their DNA, and it's these differences that make each of us unique. Gene variations are slight changes in the genetic code and have been linked to certain health conditions, likelihood of health risks, behavior, personality traits, and ancestry.
When it comes to your overall health and well-being, DNA is only among one of the health determinants. Your lifestyle and environment are equally important to consider. This is why we assess DNA, lifestyle, and blood biomarkers together. By analyzing your unique genetic characteristics using GenixPRO™, you may personalize your training, diet and lifestyle choices to match your individual needs in achieving your goals. Better.
