DNA Analysis is available in following languages: English, Dutch, French (more languages coming soon).
If you happen to already have 23andme raw DNA data, you can order this analysis without the DNA collection and genotyping part: see here
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 decode that unique functioning for you. Afterwards you receive a personalized report with the insights you need to adapt your lifestyle in a purposeful way. With a DNA analysis you can start working towards a fitter and healthier life.
This genetic profile can take the guesswork out of your training routine. It gives you possible information related to your personal 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.
Building muscle mass
Find out if you have a genetic variant that can help you build muscle mass faster and more easily once you do strength training.
What about your potential to be possibly under- or 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.
Discover your possible genetic potential to recover after heavy physical activities.
Injuries are unfortunately part of almost any 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.
Every day we are exposed to factors and stimuli we need to be aware of in order to be able to live a healthy and happy life.
This profile can provide more insight into:
Motivation & stress
Do you potentially learn from a positive or rather a negative experience? Are you more at risk of burnout or boreout? This panel can give you more insight into how your body deals possibly with motivation, focus and stress.
You’ll find out if you’re potentially more likely to eat high-calorie foods and thus increase the eventual risk of obesity.
Sensitivity to caffeine
Different genetic variants are in circulation that can influence the speed at which your body can breakdown caffeine. Find out to what degree you may be sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants.
Sensitivity to fast sugars
Find out if you have genetic variations that might make you more sensitive to fast sugars.
Do you have an increased need for fibre and intestinal support? This panel can show you if your gut could use some extra support.
This panel can tell you if you have the potential genetics for digestion of lactose in adulthood and can thus give you more information about your likely genetic predisposition to lactose intolerance.
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 thought to play a role in many sleep disorders.
A healthy and balanced diet is fundamental to being able to achieve your health goals. How sensitive are you to possible nutrient, vitamin and mineral deficiencies?
Gain possible insights on topics such as:
Do you have genetic variants that might make you more sensitive to simple carbohydrates? Find out if you have a potential need for complex carbohydrates.
Which genetic variants in your DNA can affect the metabolism of fats? With this panel you can get an answer.
Learn if your body may have problems breaking down byproducts from protein burning in your muscles. This insight can help you choose whether a low-carb or ketogenic diet may be healthier for you.
Minerals metabolisms (iron, zinc, magnesium...)
Due to possible genetic variations that may be present, the metabolism of minerals may be disrupted and your body may have an additional need for minerals.
Vitamins metabolisms (C, D, K...)
Do you have possible genetic variants in your DNA that could interfere with the metabolism of various vitamins? This panel provides some possible insights into reasons for potential deficiencies.
Find out if the production of choline by your body translates into a potential functional choline deficiency, which can lead to higher muscle breakdown during long intensive workouts.
Genetic match with specific diets
Not every diet or food pattern is equally healthy for everyone. Specific genetic variants in our bodies mean that there may be a better match with a particular diet.
NICE TO KNOW
Here you can find some nice to know DNA insights. Amaze you friends with some interesting knowledge about your own genetic make-up.
Do you posess the genetic variation that alcohol-related sensitivity responses including facial flushing, and severe hangovers?
Find out if you probably need deodorant to control your body odor.
Do I sneeze when looking at a bright sky?
The photic sneeze reflex is a reflex condition that causes sneezing in response to numerous stimuli, such as looking at bright lights. The condition affects 18–35% of the world’s population, but its exact mechanism of action is not well understood.
And many more
How does it work?
- After ordering, you will receive a DNA kit with a saliva collector.
- Follow the included step-by-step guide to register your kit1 and easily take a saliva sample.
- Return the sample using the box it arrived in. From Belgium, shipping costs are prepaid, just drop it in the mailbox. From another country, you will have to pay the shipping costs.
- After six to eight weeks2, you will receive your raw DNA data by email, which you can upload in our state-of-the-art DNA dashboard.
(1)(2) For best results, we recommend registering and returning the kit within one month of purchase. From the moment we receive the kit, it will take 6 to 8 weeks to prepare the report.
Rigorous Scientific Validation
From genetic experts with international diplomas in nutrigenomics, our own scientific papers, to an intensive collaboration with several Belgian and internationally renowned universities, 4Gold has established itself as a leading player in the rapidly changing nutrigenomic science.
The DNA interpretation is based on more than thousand peer reviewed scientific papers from respectable journals and genetic data from sources like ClinVar*.
The rigorous scientific approach resulted in 3 world class patents in the domain of nutrigenomics.
*ClinVar is an archive of reports of the relationships among human variations and phenotypes, with supporting evidence.
State-of-the-art university lab
In order to extract the DNA from saliva and convert it into raw data, we use an external lab connected to a University Hospital. Their process is carefully controlled and validated.
This data is then translated by the 4Gold experts.
