DNA Analysis
€300
Insights in your genetic make-up, by analysing your genetic variations, can help you achieve your athletic or personal goals. These genetic variants are like mutations that are very common and what makes each person unique and different. Many of those common genetic variants interact with each other in a way that they reinforce or counteract each other. A unique aspect of our approach is the development of algorithms that take the interaction between genetic variants into account.

GET TO KNOW YOU
Your DNA is the genetic coding in which all of your hereditary traits have been passed on. The most common examples are the color of your eyes, hair color, … but it contains also a lot of information that determines your predisposition for certain sports, your metabolism of nutrients, etcetra. So your DNA can reveal a wealth of information that explains the unique functioning of your body.
With an analysis of your DNA, we can decipher that unique working for you. Start now to make targeted lifestyle adjustments towards a fitter and healthier life. The lifestyle adjustments with the most potential are summarized for you in your epigenetic dashboard that links your DNA to your current lifestyle via a questionnaire, and provides insight into things you may have overlooked for years. This new top-tier technology enables you to pursue your goals in a more targeted way. Why spend years looking for solutions when there is only one thing that never changes, your DNA. Small adjustments, big results.
LEVEL OF EVIDENCE
‘Evidence based’ is essential in the health industry. But a lot of evidence based insights often have no clue about the mechanisms behind the effect. When a mechanism remains unclear (= black box) the actionables that are linked to the DNA insights have a far more limited scope. All the research 4Gold is doing, also zooms in on the specific mechanisms behind the genetic variants, to offer the broadest scope of insights possible and ensure a maximal effect of your actions following the DNA analysis.

THE SCIENCE
At 4Gold, we are passionate about innovation and science. Our DNA analysis is unique and on the leading edge of innovation in the fields of Nutrigenetics.
WE ARE UNIQUE
1) After countless years of research, our research team has developed software that solves the main problem of most commercial DNA reports. They do not take into account the interaction between genetic variants. This may seem like a minor problem, but genetic variants can either reinforce or counteract each other. We have developed complicated algorithms to take the interaction between genetic variants into account.

 2) Unique link with Nutrigenomic supplements. We offer a range of patented Nutrigenomic supplements. These are supplements developed to alter gene expression - alterations in gene expression are normal and happen on a daily basis in reaction to everything you encounter. Nutrigenomic supplements contain specific phytonutrients capable of altering gene expression in a powerful way, specifically designed with a specific goal in mind, like athletic performance or general health.
PRIVACY
The DNA extraction is done at a University lab in Europe under GDPR law. Combined with extra precautions set by 4Gold, your DNA insights are only accessible by you. For all other intermediaries (lab, scientists, logistics,...) your data remains anonymous. You will become the sole owner of your raw genetic data file. 4Gold does not store genetic data.
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
Every day, new research is published in the domain of nutrigenetics. New insights, results and algorithms are continuously improved to provide you with up-to-date genetic information. As such, you will receive life long free updates of your DNA insights. Every time you access our epigenetic dashboard with your raw genetic data file, this file is instantly reprocessed anonymously by our servers, to provide you with the most up-to-date dashboard. Therefore, it is crucial to save and keep your raw genetic data file.

Not only research evolves continuously, so do we. We are constantly updating our dashboard to give you the best and top of the market insights in your DNA. We have recently implemented an advanced feature that provides you with an even more personalised report that links your DNA results to your goals en actionables summarised in your epigenetic dashboard.
WHAT CAN YOUR DNA TELL YOU?
Ever wondered how your body performs genetically? What does your body’s genetic design look like? Your DNA can reveal a wealth of information that can explain the unique functioning of your body.
HEALTH
Motivation and stress: Do you potentially learn faster from a positive or rather a negative experience? Are you more at risk of burnout or boreout? This panel gives you more insight into how your body deals possibly with motivation, focus and stress.

Obesity risk: Find out if you are more likely to eat high-calorie foods and thus increase the potential risk of obesity.

Risk for gluten sensitivity: Celiac (or coeliac) disease is an autoimmune disorder in which gluten causes damage to the villi in the small intestines. There is not one specific genetic variant that causes everyone who carries it to get celiac disease. Instead, there are genetic variants that must be present in order for a person to be susceptible to celiac disease.

Gut health: Do you have an increased need for intestinal support? There are common genetic variants, which can lead to an increased need of HMO's for a healthy intestinal flora. This panel shows you if your gut could use some extra support.

Sleep quality: Sleep quality is defined as one’s satisfaction of the sleep experience, integrating aspects of sleep initiation, sleep maintenance, sleep quantity, and refreshment upon awakening. Sleep is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors and genetic factors are believed to play a role in many sleep disorders.

Any many more...
SPORTS PERFORMANCE
Insights from our DNA analysis can take the guesswork out of your training routine. This group of panels gives you information related to your personal physical performance.

Endurance or Power: The ratio of muscle fibers in your muscles may determine whether you have a genetic predisposition for endurance sports, strength sports or maybe you excel in both.

Fasted training: Some people feel less good when they train fasted. In extreme cases, it is even inadvisable to train fasted. This panel gives you a maximum estimated time that fasted training can be used.

Building muscle mass: Find out if you have the Hercules gene. This genetic variant will make you build muscle mass way faster and more easily once you do strength training than other people.

Training loadability: Are you at risk of becoming overtrained? How much training load you can handle depends on the extent to which your body can deal with oxidative stress that may disrupt the redox balance and thus your body's resilience.

Injury sensitivity: Injuries are unfortunately part of almost every sports discipline. Especially tendon and other soft tissue injuries are common in all levels of sports activities. By identifying the genetic risk factors, better prevention and treatment therapies can be defined.

And many more...
NUTRITION
Find out how your body responds to different micro and macronutrients.

Lactose (in)tolerance: Do you have the potential genetics for digestion of lactose in adulthood? This panel provides more information about your likely genetic predisposition to lactose (in)tolerance.

Protein metabolism: Learn if your body may have problems breaking down byproducts from protein metabolization. This insight can help you choose whether a low-carb or ketogenic diet may be healthier for you.

Vitamin D metabolism: A vitamin D deficiency is quite common and mostly caused by limited exposure to sunlight. Beside that there are common genetic variants in vitamin D metabolism which can also contribute to a functional deficiency.

Iron metabolism: Do you have a higher need for iron because you absorb less iron than someone else? Or are you at risk for haemochromatosis?

Omega 3 metabolism: There are three types of omega 3 fatty acids that are most important for the body: ALA, EPA and DHA. DHA is essential because brain cells, among other things, are formed from this fatty acid. Our bodies are able to convert ALA into EPA and EPA into DHA. However, for many people this conversion is not optimal. Can you convert ALA into DHA? Can you get enough omega 3 from nuts and seeds or do you need more algae, krill or fish in your diet?

And many more...
SUPPLEMENTS
How do you react to certain supplements?

Protein supplementation: Which protein supplement is the best for you? Is it good to take diary protein or even better to take plant-based protein?

Fructose (in)tolerance: Fructose tolerance is very important to be able to absorb a 2:1 ratio (glucose/fructose) in the body. This panel provides more information about your likely genetic predisposition to fructose (in)tolerance.

Creatine: Are you a creatine responder or not?

Caffeine: Does caffeine have an effect on your strength or not, does it have endurance enhancing effects or not, does it give you mental benefits or not?

HMO supplementation: There are common genetic variants, which can lead to an increased need of HMO's for a healthy intestinal flora.

And many more...
TARGETED APPROACH
When you open your epigenetic dashboard for the first time, we will ask you to complete a short questionnaire. This questionnaire gives us more information about some external factors that, in combination with your DNA, can alter your overall outcomes on some panels. You can alter this questionnaire at any time and thus so will your actionables.

Gender: Your gender can influence several factors. For example, you may have a genetic variant that causes your stress neurotransmitters to be broken down insufficiently; these neurotransmitters are involved in mental health, and reduced breakdown can cause symptoms of burnout. As a man, you will most likely experience few consequences of this, but women on the other hand can experience more consequences. This is because estrogens are broken down by the same enzymes, which are given preference in breakdown as opposed to these neurotransmitters.

Age: Age can also make you more susceptible to certain health risks. For example the ‘salt sensitivity’ panel. A 20-year-old individual with an increased salt sensitivity due to a genetic variant will have less to take into account than a 65-year-old individual with an increased salt sensitivity, who might have to make some lifestyle changes.

Goals & interests: Indicate what your goals and interests are and we will give you an overview of the most important highlights and action points based on your DNA and questionnaire.

Level, type and frequency of sports practice: Some panels might be more important to you, if you practise sports intensively. Type of sport can also provide additional information here, for example; your muscle fibre type can tell you whether you might have more aptitude for endurance or power sports. Frequency can also reveal different insights, such as a genetic variant that causes you to recover more slowly. If you only train once or twice a week, you will most likely not experience any problems. If, however, you exercise at a high level and five days a week, you might be more prone to injury because you don’t recover fast enough. When you know this, it's something you can take into account for the future.

Diet: Your diet can also give you other specific insights. For example, you may have a genetic variant that causes you to absorb less iron. This will be no problem when your diet is a classic western diet, which provides more than enough iron, and you’ll probably not be affected by this. If you follow a vegan diet, however, there is a good chance that you will benefit from an iron supplement because an adjusted diet might still not be able to cover the deficit.

FAQ
Is the sample collection difficult and painful to do?

No, it's really easy and painless to do. You just collect some saliva with a cotton swab on the inside of your cheek.

How do I ensure the best saliva sample?

For the best results, it is highly recommended not to eat, drink (except water), smoke or chew gum during 30 minutes before collecting saliva.

When the DNA kit arrives just read the instructions carefully before taking your sample.

How do I register my DNA kit?

The box in which the kit was sent shows a QR code and a link to dna.4gold.eu . Scan the QR-code with your smartphone or surf to the website. Fill in the requested details to register your kit. After registration, you will be redirected to the instructions to successfully take your saliva sample. After you have successfully completed the registration and collection of the sample, you need to return the DNA kit - for Belgium the kit is already pre-paid, for other countries the return must still be paid for.

I forgot to register my kit, what do I do?

Send us an email at DNA@4gold.eu and we will try to locate your sample. There are no guarantees that we can find your sample and link it to you with enough certainty. When not 100% sure, you will have to ask for a new DNA sample kit.

I already have raw genetic data file at my disposal. Can I have it analysed by 4Gold?

At this time, we can also analyse genetic data files from 23andme. You can find more information on this product page.

Does my DNA change over time?

No, your DNA is fixed. Only gene expression can change over time. That is why the information in your raw genetic data file is still usable after many years. Keep it at hand if updates are available, because every day new scientific research emerges that provides new insights into genetics and nutrigenetics.

Where can I find my results?

Your raw DNA datafile will be sent to you by email. Once we receive a response that you have received the files correctly, all files of your DNA will be removed. That’ s why it is important that you save the files properly. You can then upload this file in our DNA dashboard at dna.4gold.eu and view your results.

Who can access my data?

You have full control over your data. So you decide who gets access to it.

At 4Gold, only our specialists have access to your raw data file and DNA reports to check and validate your results. But as soon as we receive a response that all files have been received correctly and the video call has been made, all files of your DNA will be removed from our servers.

Can I share my data with other health practitioners?

Yes! We have made a special dashboard for paramedics (doctors, physiotherapists, dietitians, trainers,...). They can create a free account and use the dashboard to securely acces the genetic data of patients (completely GDPR compliant). This way, they can discuss results with them or they can personalize certain services - for example, setting up a diet, interpreting a blood analysis or drawing up a training plan. Would you like to give your doctor, dietitian, trainer access to your data or are you a paramedic who would like to work with us or has questions about this? Please contact us at dna@4gold.eu.

What is the difference between the 4Gold DNA analysis and those of others?

After countless years of research, our research team has developed software that solves the main problem of most commercial DNA reports. They do not take into account the interaction between genetic variants. This may seem like a minor problem, but genetic variants can either reinforce or counteract each other. We have developed complicated algorithms to take the interaction between genetic variants into account.

“I used to have regular digestive problems or the feeling that I couldn't digest everything properly. My DNA analysis also showed that my intestines could use some extra support. Since I started using the Gut support all my digestive problems are gone.... No more bloating, better digestion, .. in other words, it has been a real game changer to me."

JUSTINE VANHAEVERMAET
Professional footballplayer at Reading FC
"In the past I had a lot of troubles with my gut and stomach. I couldn't use any supplements and was making my sports nutrition myself. But since I'm working with 4Gold, thanks to their DNA analysis, I know exactly what I can use"

LAURENS VANTHOOR
Professional racing driver
"I think DNA based supplements are the future and 4Gold is really ahead of the rest of the field. The 4Gold DNA analysis showed that I have a metabolisation problem with vitamin D. Since I’m taking the vitamin D of 4Gold I even have to be careful not to take too much, because the absorption is so good my blood levels rise extremely quickly.

KIM MEYLEMANS
Professional skeleton racer
“The insights from our DNA analysis are extremely interesting for getting to know yourself better. At top level in sport, small things make the difference between winning and losing. The 4Gold DNA analysis ensures that I can pursue optimal health and performance."
MATHIEU VAN DER POEL

Co-founder 4GOLD
"4Gold combines science, innovation and meaning to formulate the best possible supplements. But their DNA analysis is from another level and ensures that their athletes are equipped with more (smart) information to reach their maximum potential."

JAMIE RIDDLE
Professional triathlete
"I was amazed by the results of the 4GOLD DNA analysis. One of the results that helped me a lot is that I'm semi-lactose intolerant. Since I changed my diet to a lactose free diet in combination with the gut support I have been feeling a big difference in digestion and gut health."

KENNETH VANDENDRIESSCHE

Professional triatlete and duathlete
"As a professional athlete you are always looking to improve yourself and for me a DNA test is one of the ways to do that. The DNA test at 4Gold went very easily and after a few weeks I received the results. In addition to the results, I received an extensive explanation where all my questions were answered. For me personally, this is an absolute must."

DNA ANALYSE

Na al een tijdje wat fysieke problemen en wat twijfelen toch gekozen voor de DNA analyse. Van sommige kwaaltjes had ik al een vermoeden maar tevens kwamen er nog andere nuttige zaken aan het licht. De videocall met Nikolaas, inclusief in het pakket, bracht nog meer duidelijkheid. Na het aanpassen van wat kleine zaken en met de nodige aandacht aan de ‘probleempunten’ is er al duidelijk verbetering zichtbaar. Mijn aanhoudende vermoeidheid is/was vrij snel verdwenen en ook de fysieke inspanningen lopen nu al een stuk vlotter. We gaan (nog even) verder met de aanbevelingen, maar voorlopig is deze DNA analyse voor mij persoonlijk alvast geslaagd! Keep up the good work 4Gold!
