WHAT IS DNA TESTING?
AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
DNA & GENETIC TESTING
Most people understand the basics of #DNA; we know we get some #DNA from mom and some from dad. It is common knowledge that #DNA determines the color of our hair, skin, eyes, and sex, but did you know it also plays a major role in our weight and overall health?
In 2004 The Human Genome Project was completed; it was a 13-year international collaboration that mapped out all of our human’s genes. They discovered approximately 50,000 variances in genetic code. These variances play a major role in how your body operates. Such as recovery time, what nutrition and exercise plans are ideal, how one handles stress, susceptibility to diseases and so much more.
Your #DNA is responsible for regulating every function in your body, from weight gain to weight loss, athletic performance, development of disease or resistance to disease, and even how you metabolize medication.
Our Genetics are a major reason why there are so many diet plans, workout plans, and GURU’s who have the next best diet/exercise or pill to take and why one size does not fit all! What most people do not realize is their genetics are affected by environmental factors. Diet and exercise programs are the most basic and modifiable of all environmental factors.
