Reliable and comprehensive knowhow in genetics

Why should you take a DNA test?

Your inherited DNA and lifestyle form 70% of your wellbeing. You can’t change your genes, but you can change your lifestyle if you put your mind to it.

Our DNA tests help you to better understand your genome and yourself in general. Each of us has a genome with its own individual strengths and weaknesses. With daily choices you can overcome the weaknesses and support the function of your good genes.

Criteria for the contents of the Nordic Genex gene panels

In order to give you the best recommendations, we analyze single nucleotide polymorfism (SNPs) known as "snips" - and copy-number variations (CNVs) of genes.  The "snips" and CNVs that we analyze, have been scientifically shown to either directly or indirectly affect specific biological processes, have an effect on body functionality, or increase the risk of one or more diseases.  In addition, we identify SNPs and CNVs of genes with yet unknown mechanism of action, but  which have been scientifically proven to have an effect on a specific trait or traits, or one or more diseases.

Futhermore, we analyze SNPs and CNVs of genes, which are relatively common or less common in population and they have scientifically proven effect on body functions and wellbeing. The effects of them can be affected by changes in one's lifestyle and/or nutrition which can also be measured with laboratory tests.

In addition to genetic testing, we recommend clinical blood tests to help you monitor the development of your health as you make changes to your lifestyle, diet or exercise. As a result of our analysis, you will receive concrete recommendations for nutrition, lifestyle and exercise that support your wellbeing. For our basic tests you can choose from numerous add-ons that you can use to complete the test report to meet your very own needs. From the add-on tests you will find information about your fat and sugar metabolism, drug responses and immunity just some to mention.

If you are an athlete or active sportsman, you will get valuable information how to develop your performance and training.

We conduct our analysis only in international laboratories and all our recommendations are based on international scientific researches and professional experience and work of our team of scientists. All information related to genetic testing is stored securely without any access to third parties in our databases, which are protected by firewalls, passwords and other technical security measures.

DNA Wellbeing tests

Our DNA Wellbeing tests cover from your genome the most important areas, which relate to overall health. The test results provide a unique and comprehensive health profile including recommendations for nutrition, nutritional supplements and lifestyle. And best of all, you can take a DNA test in any life situation but you don't have to take the test again because your genes do not change.

Wellbeing tests

DNA Add-on tests

You can take add-on tests to DNA Health and Hormone and DNA Skin health tests. With these add-on DNA tests you can easily complement your DNA tests, if you lack some specific information you are interested in.

Targeted training using genetic information

If you are an athlete or an active sports enthusiast, the Sport Pro DNA test will help you with nutrition, supplements and exercise. This DNA test, designed for athletes and active sports enthusiasts, reviews genetic risk factors, performance and potential, metabolism, and motivational factors.

You will receive a clear and practical report with analysis and recommendations on which type of training will give you the best training response. The report also includes optimal nutrition and supplement recommendations for your own genetic heritage. However, if you are a professional athlete and aim for the top, then we recommend our DNA Health and Hormones test with DNA-Fat and Sugar Metabolism and APOE supplements.
