Our Science

We target the most important genes for health and wellness

  • dnaPower specializes in looking at the most important genes for preventative health - data that helps you decide what you can do everyday to improve your health and wellness.
  • Sometimes one gene can be a good predictor of health, but in many cases combinations of genes provide the most well-rounded health picture, with the best, most predictive information on the topic.
  • Most other companies use large standard panels that are missing key health information. 

How We're Different | The science behind DNA testing at dnaPower Inc. 

We use the most predictive method in our custom gene panels

Polygenic scores are the best predictive method to give you a complete picture of a topic. They combine the predictive power of a group of genes, not just one gene.
Polygenic scores – the best predictive method to give you a complete picture – analyzing a group of genes, not just one gene.
Nutrition, fitness and health research and expert advice to create high impact action plan.
70+ carefully selected test areas that have the most impact on day to day health.
Over 1200 scientific papers identifying important gene traits.

Powerful lifestyle genetics

We specialize in lifestyle genetics

Our DNA is 99.8% the same. 0.2% accounts for the incredible variety among humans.  We specialize in researching the genetic variations between people related to lifestyle so that we can put the best, most useful scientific information for your unique body in your hands.  

Your actions change your genetics

Well actually, it changes your gene expression. This is called epigenetics. Your DNA code is your lifetime blueprint. How you live your life – epigenetics - determines how that blueprint becomes your house – your body. Diet, exercise, stress, sleep, environment and more play an essential role in how your genes express themselves.

Live according to your DNA

By understanding your unique DNA make up, you can take lifestyle actions that support your good genes and guard against your weak genes. The earlier you know about your genetic makeup, the easier it is to match your diet and fitness choices to your unique body. By understanding your genetic profile, you can take smarter lifestyle actions to live a healthier life.
