Target & Goal
Each person’s physical ability is different. We all have different hearts, family and individual history and body structure. The varying, personal genetics is the reason why an identical workout can yield different results for different athletes.
Genetics and Sports Performance
Genetics have a large influence over strength, muscle size and muscle fiber composition, lung capacity, flexibility, and, to some extent, an individual’s determination and endurance. Each athlete has a different genetic structure that affects his/her athletic potential – called genetic ceiling. One major limitation for athletic endurance is cardiac capacity, or the heart’s ability to deliver enough oxygen via the bloodstream to the working skeletal muscles. This, too, is largely determined by genetics.
The other limitation is the ability of muscle tissue to effectively use oxygen and create ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the fuel that allows muscular contraction and movement.
Therefore, genetics shape an individual in many ways including the potential to excel in sports. Training, diet, and other factors play a large role in developing the potential within, but an individual’s genes may also limit his/her performance. On the other hand, someone with limited genetic potential can find ways to compensate and become a solid performer.
What the Genes Tests Reveal
In this test, you will be astonished when you understand how:
- Genetic design affects bone density.
- Body metabolism is influenced and affected by genetic makeup.
- Genes are responsible for the influence of toxins on our system.
- Collagen affects the health and the strength of tissues.
- Genes impact absorption and interpretation of Vitamin D, minerals and other nutrients.
Genetic test results
The test results will contain the observed, active genes in the test. The test report will be formatted and will be mailed electronically to the subject as an attached file. Please note, this test does not diagnose any sickness, but indicates the connections between the subject and his or her population group based on the tested gene.
How the test is performed
The test is performed using a sampling toolkit of saliva or mucosa. The test is simple, painless, and subject-friendly; suitable for any age. Children under the age of 18 will need a parent’s signature in a parental agreement form.
5 Easy Steps Of Sample Collection
- Large amount of saliva or mucosa needs to be sampled in order to perform the test.
- Spitting in the toolkit is not permitted.
- After opening the test stick, it should not be put on any surface other than the mouth to avoid contamination.
- After the sample collection, it should be returned to the toolkit immediately and the toolkit needs to be closed.
- The toolkit includes an agreement form that needs to be completed, signed and attached to the test delivery package.
Easy delivery and schedule
On receiving the test order confirmation, the toolkit will be sent to the specified address of the subject. The toolkit includes a prepaid return delivery package. The only thing required from the subject is to provide the sample in the test toolkit and to complete and sign the agreement form in the package and mail it back. Delivery services will be provided with additional fees. The test results will be mailed electronically to the subject after 2-3 weeks, thus promising complete privacy and confidentiality.
