DNA test helps you keep diet and exercise resolutions

Every New Year, countless Americans make resolutions to eat healthier, exercise more, and lose weight as soon as the clock strikes midnight. And every year, most of those people fail to meet their goals because they’re not seeing results. Thankfully, there’s now a once-in-a-lifetime test that can help people keep their New Year’s resolutions to live a healthier, happier life.

Advanced Genomic Solutions (AGS), an international leader in genomic testing, has launched a DNA based Health and Wellness Test that empowers people to make more informed health choices based on their unique genes. All it takes is a basic cheek swab DNA test, which gets mailed off to AGS’ lab. Anyone can do it themselves. A few days later, the customer receives an individualized report to help them understand how their genetics affect their diet, exercise, and nutrition.

The personized AGS report analyses more than 50 genes, including genes involved with overeating and addictive behaviors, cholesterol and diabetes risks, vitamin deficiencies, exercise impact and favorable physical training methods. It also analyses the individual’s obesity risk, including BMI and waist circumference.

“This once-in-a-lifetime test using your genetic information will serve you forever, enabling you to make informed healthcare choices specific to your body,” said Lance Bennett, Managing Partner of AGS.  “The personalized health report will help tell people what type of exercise best suits their genetic profile, will let them know the best supplements for their genetic makeup, and increased awareness of behavior tendencies to promote healthier eating habits, prevent diseases and reduce obesity.”

The test is now available in the United States for a lowered price of $450 for adults (normally $550) and $350 for children through February. Know your body better through the AGS Health and Wellness Test. Click here to learn more.
