Advanced DNA testing
Our advanced DNA testing allows us to determine exactly which foods and exercises will work best for your body
A nutrition and fitness plan designed to work with your unique genetic traits
Each person responds to food and exercise in their own unique way due to variants in their genetic code. This is why some weight-loss methods work better for some people than for others. When it comes to dieting and weight loss, many people use a trial-and-error approach that often produces temporary or zero weight-loss results. This can be frustrating and difficult to deal with, especially when those weight-loss methods are also costly and time-consuming.
Vivaliti DNA: a new approach
Our advanced DNA testing allows us to determine exactly which foods and exercises will work best for your body — allowing you to modify your nutrition and fitness plans as needed to accommodate your genetic variants. Vivaliti DNA helps you learn more about the inner workings of your body so you can steer clear of foods that are detrimental to your health and your weight, eat more foods that help optimize your health, and focus on exercises that produce the best results.
Vivaliti DNA tests 80 different genetic markers to determine exactly how your body functions. Knowing details about your unique genetic makeup allows us to develop highly personalized nutrition and fitness programs that work best for your body.
Vivaliti DNA will teach you:
- Which exercises work best at helping you lose weight
- Which vitamins and minerals are needed for optimal health and to feel your very best
- Whether you are prone to unhealthy habits like overeating due to genetic variants
- How to manage and overcome unhealthy habits caused by genetic variants
- Whether you may be at risk for high levels of blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides
- How to combine aerobic activity, strength training, and endurance training for the best weight-loss results
- Which lifestyle changes and behaviors can help reduce the risk of chronic disease
Knowing exactly how your body works can empower you to make effective, sustainable lifestyle changes that allow you to benefit from optimal health and longevity. Vivaliti DNA can help you lose weight, improve your fitness level, and reduce your risk of illness and chronic disease as you age.
DNA testing for weight loss
There’s a lot more that goes into weight loss than monitoring the number of calories taken in and burned off. Metabolism is controlled by a number of complex bodily processes that can be disrupted and impaired by underlying health factors such as chronic inflammation and nutritional deficiencies. Hormonal imbalances can also impair your metabolism and be caused by genetic variants that make you more prone to overeating and weight gain. DNA testing helps you learn more about the genetic variants that may be interfering with your metabolism so you can maintain a healthy weight.
Did you know ...
- People with a common variant of the FTO gene tend to have higher levels of a hormone called ghrelin that triggers hunger pangs?
- Roughly 22% of the population carries a gene that stimulates appetite and causes snacking between meals?
- As much as 85% of the population carries a gene that increases the risk of obesity and diabetes and makes it difficult to burn fat?
Vivaliti DNA can reveal exactly what you need to know about your health and genetics so you can make smart changes to your eating habits and fitness routine that lend to good overall health and weight loss.
The best exercises for your body
If you’ve been exercising regularly for a period of time without seeing results, it’s possible you’re doing activities that aren’t optimal for you based on your genetics. Your DNA profile can reveal which exercises work best for your body so you can follow a training program based on activities that produce significant results.
Many tend to think cardio exercises like running and swimming are the best activities for weight loss, when in fact, these exercises are more beneficial for some than for others. Strength training is generally recognized as the ideal activity for building muscle and burning fat, though this activity has been linked to fat gain in people with a certain genetic variant.
Knowing more about your genetic makeup and how it affects your weight-loss progress can help you avoid the guilt and frustration that comes with trying other conventional weight-loss methods.
The ideal diet for your genotype
Sticking to a healthy diet can be difficult, especially because there’s a lot of conflicting information surrounding the types of foods that truly make up a healthy diet. Some argue that low-carb diets are the best diets for weight loss, while others say Mediterranean and paleo diets are healthier and more effective.
Everyone’s body responds differently to different foods due to genetic variants. Evidence suggests that certain foods, diets, and ways of eating that are often touted as healthy may not work for everyone. Even people with the same genetic variants react differently to foods, especially when those individuals are from different ethnic backgrounds. For instance, one genetic variant has been linked to an increased risk of obesity among caucasians, but people of Asian and African descent with the same variant were not found to experience the same risk of weight gain.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dieting, considering everyone responds to foods differently. Your friend may lose excess weight successfully on a low-fat diet, but you may benefit more from a completely different approach.
Vivaliti DNA will identify the foods that are healthiest for your body and most effective for weight loss based on a number of genetic factors.
Your genetic report will reveal your ideal diet type, along with other beneficial information, including:
- Eating behaviors influenced by your genetics, such as whether you’re prone to snacking on junk food
- The foods you need to meet your body’s exact nutrition requirements
- How different types of dietary fat may affect your weight
- Whether you’re prone to storing excess fat
- Nutritional deficiencies you may be at risk for
- Insight into how your body responds to caffeine, alcohol, lactose, and bitter foods
- And more!
