This DNA sport test is a state-of-the-art genetic test, that focusses on a specific sub-set of genes that are linked to training responsiveness and sporting performance. These include soft tissue remodelling, inflammation, blood flow and respiration, energy production and fuel metabolism. Science in Health is now approved for offering and interpreting this test.
Athletic success results firstly from a personal training strategy that optimises your genetic potential, and secondly choosing the best nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your inherited genes. The insight from this test can thus be used by Science In Health to give the optimum nutrition advice in an attempt to prevent injury as well as optimise recovery in order to perform at one’s best.
DNA Sport reports on the following areas:
- structural integrity of soft tissues
- inflammation & oxidative stress
- blood flow & respiration
- energy during exercise
- fuel during exercise
- caffeine metabolism
- muscle and bone composition
- aerobic capacity
- power/strength potential
The testing is done via a saliva sample, so no needles…
