Personalized – Predictive – Preventive


Identify your susceptibility to diseases!


Improve your Health!


Our genes play a key role in biological systems such as the processes of cell proliferation, glucose metabolism, protection from toxins and drugs, the immune system, and food metabolism etc.


Although we cannot change our genetic profile, we can benefit from our genetic advantages and “defend” and maximize them and in the most efficient and scientific way.



≈100 genes are tested in order to:


• Identify your Genetic susceptibility to diseases and other risks to your health.


• Identify your specific nutritional needs for the protection of your body.


• Identify the reactions of your body to the use of certain drugs and nutritional supplements.


• Identify your possible increased risk to medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, cancer and others, in comparison to the general population


Which are the genetic causes of future possible aggravation to your health?


How much are you genetically “protected” from disease?


Sampling Procedure


Sampling of your genetic material (DNA) is painless, lasts for a few minutes and does not require a blood sample. It involves taking cells from the inside of your cheek with a specially sterilized buccal swab.


At our Molecular Genetics laboratory, your DNA is isolated and then analyzed for detection of mutations.


You have full discretion over your personal data; a unique code number is assigned to your sample during testing so that the only person who knows your results is you.


When we have completed the analysis of your sample and delivered your results, your genetic material is completely destroyed.


DNA: Our Genetic “Blueprint”


Our genetic material defines every aspect of our life, right from the definition of our physical features to our “gifts”, our disadvantages and our susceptibility to disease.


Although more than 99% of human DNA is identical among all people, it is the remaining 1% that makes us each unique.


These tiny differences are called mutations and define our differences with other people.


Mutations in our genetic material define very aspect of our life. They make us unique, give us special abilities and advantages, but also create barriers and cause increased susceptibility to diseases compared to general population.


What do we test for?


Our Health DNA Test detects mutations in certain genes which affect your susceptibility to common, multi-factorial diseases for which prediction and prevention are of undisputed value. Also it detects mutations in genes that control drug metabolism and nutrient (food) metabolism, affecting your body’s response to them.


“Health risks and the needs of the human body regarding prevention are different for each individual and are defined by our DNA, which is unique!”


What can you learn from your results?


• How your genes affect the biological processes which are important for your health and wellbeing.


• If you have an increased risk to diseases such cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, asthma, Inflammatory/autoimmune diseases, and certain types of cancer, in order to take the necessary measures to reduce this risk.


• How your genes affect your metabolism of certain drugs and your body’s response to them, in order to receive the best possible drug therapy with maximum efficiency.


• How your genes affect your metabolism of food in order to properly adjust your diet to your personal genetic needs.


How can you benefit from this information?


By learning about your genetic profile, you will be provided with vital information about your genetic susceptibility to certain disease, in order to prevent or delay the onset of disease with the appropriate medical intervention, the appropriate drug therapy, the appropriate diet, and other general changes in the way you live.


You will be provided with a “Pharmaco-Genetic profile” which can be used by medical practitioners to choose the most efficient medication (if any is needed) and prescribe the proper dosage, according to your personal needs.


Value Added Services


We also offer a number of services based on your DNA Health test results, including:


•A Personalized Nutritional Consultation and Diet plan for the daily nutritional needs of your body, aiming at a healthy way of living and optimal health according to your personal needs.


Personalized Nutritional Supplements


Your genetic profile can also be used by specialized companies to provide you with a personalized range of supplements which are:


• 100% organic


• based on the results of your DNA test


• produced to satisfy the specific needs of your body


• necessary in your daily routine for your ongoing nutritional support general wellbeing


“Maintaining optimal health is a long-standing process that requires the active participation of the individual and the faithful adjustment to the proposed corrective actions for the rest of his/her life”.
