At Lifestyle Genomics Research Centre, we not only recognise, but also respect the immense complexity of human biology and that your genetic SNPs are only part of the riddle behind complex chronic conditions.
We have therefore designed our Variant Report to resemble a strategy plan.
Unlike many reports out there however, this one is not designed simply as a marketing tool, to push easy fixes, or sell subscriptions and supplements.
Although the resources we supply with your report do also list compounds (including dietary supplements) as per their effect on each listed gene, we do not, include lists of recommended supplements as this is a very flawed and potentially dangerous approach.
There are many genetic 'fortune-tellers' out there, but you will discover that these often use marketing gimmicks to either sell supplements or to make DNA data analysis apps or indeed DNA testing services, look appealing, by proposing to offer easy fixes.
Supplements ARE NOT designed to simply target specific genetic SNPs and not do anything else. We recognise that there is in fact a lot of overlap in the action of these compounds. There are many natural substances and supplements that can lower inflammation or help with detoxification, but, at the same time, will have an impact on the levels of your neurotransmitters, and in this way affect your mood as well as cognitive abilities. The same goes for methylation support, mitochondrial support and in general, just about any other body system support.
Then there is the issue of substances that may be right for you but only at the right time, at the right dosage or only to some extent.
Our report reflects our functional approach mindset and therefore the sections of your Variant Report are listed in a particular, strategic order.
Addressing body systems and metabolic functions in the order as listed in your report, may improve the safety and effectiveness of any interventions and help you avoid mistakes.
