CEO of myDNA, Dr Lior Rauchberger, says that everyone processes vitamins and minerals differently, “We all have a unique DNA profile that we inherited from our parents, and this dictates how we process vitamins and minerals.”
As information on vitamins is conflicting, the new at-home cheek-swab test identifies whether you may have a greater need for certain vitamins and minerals and the actions to take to meet your optimal needs.
“Some of us produce more vitamins, others absorb things quicker or slower. The DNA test can help guide people and give them information about what might be the best vitamins for them.
“The Vitamins Report provides personalised recommendations on the types of foods they should incorporate into their diet, based on their DNA profile, and also tips on which vitamins will be most useful and when,” says Dr Rauchberger.
“People need trustworthy and clear information on which vitamins and minerals they may or may not need, and this can only be achieved with personalised advice. Vitamins and supplements that are suitable for one person may not be suitable for another.”
Alex says that understanding what our bodies need, is the most important thing we can do, “Once we know our individual requirements, we can take the right actions towards our daily nutrition by focusing on the foods that contain the right nutrients for us.”
myDNA is encouraging all Australians to seek professional advice. “We suggest speaking to your local pharmacist about how your DNA can affect how you process vitamins and minerals, or head to the myDNA website for more information,” says Dr Rauchberger.
