Nutrigenomics testing is the practice of utilising genetic markers to determine the interaction between our diet, our lifestyle and our genes. Each of us has a unique “blueprint” which is determined by our genes, defining everything from our ability to metabolize certain foods, our eye colour, our susceptibility to disease, our health potential and our ability to manage our weight. Bottom line, our genes determine how our body responds to food, physical activity and other lifestyle choices.
DNA testing and analysis allows for data-driven and personalised nutritional and lifestyle recommendations for every patient. Armed with information, you can be better-equipped to achieve your goals.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Anyone looking to take a personalised, effective and functional approach to their health, wellness and performance, based on YOUR specific DNA composition! Everyone is different, the approach should be too!

HOW IT WORKS:
Simple, just schedule a discovery call here and lets get you started!
- Once your order is confirmed, the DNA test kit is couriered directly to you to do a quick and easy oral swab.
- Once ready, the test kit is collected by our couriers and sent to the lab for analysis.
- Finally, you will receive a 30 minute consultation and comprehensive digital breakdown for personalised insights into diet, nutrition and lifestyle solutions based on your specific requirements for optimal health and performance!
*Nutrigenomics services are totally safe and completely non-invasive, requiring only a cheek swab for the sample.
DNA Diet tests several gene variations that impact metabolism, absorption and storage of fats and carbohydrates, as well as eating behaviour to understand how your genetic profile will impact your response to our most effective healthy eating plans.
DNA Health is designed to identify any potential lifestyle diseases and to optimise your well-being and health by personalising your lifestyle and diet choices.
The effectiveness of training and sporting performance is affected by key biological areas, and with DNA Sport, we can help personalise a training strategy that optimises your genetic potential, and identify the right lifestyle, nutrition and environmental interactions to optimally express your genetic potential.
The DNA Skin test can help you mitigate destructive exposure to UV rays by testing 19 gene variations in the following areas: firmness and elasticity | sun sensitivity and damage, pigmentation, protection and repair | antioxidant status and inflammation
Taking this test may help you understand how to avoid the onset of a range of neurological disorders in the following areas: neurodegenerative disorders | addictive behaviour | adrenaline-seeking | mood regulation
The majority of breast cancer occurs in women with no family history of it, but oestrogen gene testing can assist in identifying at-risk individuals and thereby lessen the risk of undetected cancers. Research shows that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen is a strong risk factor in the development of breast cancer.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?
After confirmation of your order, delivery of the test takes between 1-3 working days.
Once received by the lab the results usually take between 3-5 working days to be sent to your practitioner before the consultation!
Once the report is received, the consultation (30-45 minutes) will be set up to discuss and present feedback based on the results, this is usually done within 1-2 working days of receiving the results.
**Currently due to COVID19, the process takes around 3-4 weeks from start to finish.
WHO DOES THE TESTING?
We have partnered with a company called, DNALYSIS, who is considered one of South Africa’s premier genetic testing laboratories who offer industry leading approaches to genetic testing for optimal health and wellness.
WHAT DOES THIS COST?
The following is included in the cost regardless of package:
*Nutrigenomic Oral Swab Test Kit
*30 Minute Online Feedback Session
*An additional flat rate of R150.00 is charged for the delivery & collection of the DNA test kits
WHO DOES THE CONSULTATION?
None other than our Founder & CEO, Tristan van Moerkerken.
