Why DNAFit?

DNAFit is an established UK based company that over the last few years have won many awards for their leading innovative work in the field of DNA testing for fitness and diet profiles. After several years of researching this area, DNAFit were chosen as a partner because of their depth of research, and on going research, into the application of DNA testing in fitness and diet. The quality assurance of the labs they use for testing, and the number of SNPs they test, is in our opinion, more applicable to our clients than many other companies’ products in this field.  DNAFit adhere to a strict scientific standard, underpinned by their industry leading code of practice, so we know the information you’re getting is the best there is. This measured approach is why DNAFit is the most respected provider of fitness and nutrition genetics worldwide, and it’s the reason customers such major health gyms, professional sports teams and even the military put their confidence in DNAFit.

“DNAFit require a minimum of three peer reviewed studies to include a SNP. These studies also need to be done in humans. Other companies don’t have the same criteria; if you look at their reference lists you will see a number of studies conducted in mice and rats. This strict criteria allows DNAFit to ensure that the SNPs we select, and hence the advice we give, is of high quality. 

Secondly, DNAFit are the first and only sports genetic testing company to show that their information has validity, as per the papers we have published and continue to publish. So, we can be confident that using the DNAFit report will improve the training programs for people, because it’s been tested. We can’t say the same for other companies.”

Dr. Craig Pickering, Science Advisor DNAFit

Many of us go through a lifetime trying different diets and whichever ‘en-vogue’ eating style is currently in the press or on the internet. You may find yourself wondering – should I try low fat, paleo, low carb, food combining and so forth. The same goes for our exercise routines – should I be lifting weights, do more endurance, incorporate circuits and how much of each is best for me? Why do I get injured and how can I help prevent it? DNAFit can help answer these questions and bring you closer to reaching your health & wellness goals.
