As a population we are living longer, however even though life expectancy has increased, health expectancy (living in good health) is decreasing.
Scientific evidence tells us that our genes are not static, but in fact responsive to the choices we make, which impacts how effectively they ‘express’ themselves. Gene expression is a way of explaining how we feel in terms of our wellbeing and how effectively our body’s function.
Get to know your genes
Through an easy to administer buccal (mouth) swab, a Fitgenes Health and Wellbeing Report is backed by the latest genetic research.
The Fitgenes Fast Track to Health program has been designed to identify selected genetic variants that may influence the way an individual’s body functions, particularly in the areas of:
- Cell defence
- Vitamin D receptors
- Methylation and homocysteine metabolism
- Cardiovascular health
- Fat metabolism and cholesterol regulation
The Fitgenes Health and Wellbeing report
The report includes consideration of how variations in genes in the above areas impact health, wellness, weight management, healthy aging, and other factors, and how those genes have been reported to respond to food, exercise, and lifestyle choices. This report offers individualised interventions to assist with nutrition, nutrigenomics (supplements), lifestyle and exercise.
The Fitgenes Fast Track to Health Program
The program takes a holistic approach to your healthcare and a certified Fitgenes practitioner can offer you a personalised and proactive approach to planning your treatment focusing on health and wellbeing matters that affect you, rather than a one size fits all approach.
Education is key
