geneDecode Fitness

What Is geneDecode™ Fitness?
geneDecode™ Fitness is a Innovative Product from Europe. It is a genetic based personalized diet and exercise lifestyle plan stemmed from the scientific research that each individual has a unique genetic makeup and thus unique nutritional and exercise needs. Therefore a diet tailored to your genetic makeup is 2 to 3 times more effective than conventional diets.
What Is Nutrigenetics & Personalised Nutrition?
Nutrigenetics is the study of the relationships among genes, diet, and health outcomes.1 Nutrigenomics, a related but distinct field, is the study of how genes and nutrients interact at the molecular level. In 2003, the Human Genome Project, which identified all the genes in human DNA and determined the sequence of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA, was completed. Knowing the sequences of the human genome opened the doors to examine the relationship among an individual’s genetic makeup, dietary intake, and health outcomes.
The excitement surrounding nutrigenetics stems from the notion that it’s the foundation of personalized nutrition. Clearly, population-based dietary recommendations are helpful, but they aren’t adequate for all individuals since people respond differently to diets. Personalized nutrition bases dietary recommendations on genetic predisposition to disease. The idea is that once personalized nutrition is integrated into routine care, patients can be genotyped for specific genetic variations, made aware of their chronic disease risk and nutrient deficiencies, and given strategies to dramatically reduce their risk.
What You Can Get Out Of geneDecode™ Fitness Tests?

By doing the test you will know

  • your individuals response to the basic types of nutrients (carbohydrates, saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids)
  • a number of important genetic predisposition to obesity, inadequate cholesterol, triglyceride and blood sugar levels, bone density, etc.
  • your genetic risk for lacking the most important vitamins and minerals
    your metabolic characteristics, exposure to oxidative stress, perception of taste and smell, and other factors that influence diet and lifestyle
  • what kind of exercises that suit your body needs most
    your personalised dietary guidelines and lifestyle guidance based on the findings from personal genetic makeup
  • a nutritional/food product lists allowing you to choose from to meet the daily needs of the most important macro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals
Who Can Benefit From geneDecode™ Fitness?

Anyone who wants to

a) achieve optimal body weight
b) reduce the risk of developing some of the most common diseases of modern times
c) achieve greater vitality and beauty
d) maintain a healthy and youthful appearance
e) follow optimal exercise program
f) adapt diet and lifestyle in accordance with the genetic makeup

Anyone, regardless of age, gender, weight, height and physical activity can benefit from the analysis, as the recommendations take into consideration all those aspects

What Is The Meaning Of "Heritability"?
In all of the analyses in the report where this information is known, “heritability” is shown. It is an important piece of measure that we use to determine how much our genes influence the formation of a certain characteristic. The bigger the heritability is, the greater influence our genes have, and the lower influence the environment has. For example the heritability for the risk of becoming overweight is estimated to approximately 75 percent, which means that the influence of genes overpowers the influence of the environment, and this is why information on our genetic makeup is so important here
How Do We Interpret And Apply The Result Of The Genetic Analysis?

Like all other genetic susceptibility analysis, this genetic analysis is not a crystal ball that predicts your future. It is a scientifically-based starting point for calculating the genetic burden, which shows us the level of probability of developing certain diseases or traits due to our genetic predisposition.

Taking into consideration the fact that both genes and the environment affect us, information of this kind can help us maximize our genetic strengths and reduce the risk of getting sick through the right diet and exercise. It also encourages us to be proactive in managing the way we live our life e.g. by quitting smoking, by early preventive examinations etc.
