DNA HEALTH & WELLNESS GENETIC TEST
Health & Wellness Genetic Test examines genes that are most relevant to your overall health, diet, and exercise.
The Health & Wellness Genetic Test evaluates the following, which are influenced by your genes:
- Increased blood cholesterol
- Obesity and Body Mass Index
- Relative resting metabolic rate
- Vitamin (eg. A, D) and folate / folic acid metabolism
- Addictive behaviors
- And more!
Also helps you understand the interactions between your genes, diet and exercise in terms of:
- Sugar and carbohydrate metabolism
- Alcohol and caffeine metabolism
- Lactose intolerance and bone health
- Dietary fat intake and response to blood cholesterol
- Exercise potential with power and endurance
- …and more!
We are all unique genetically. Your genes can explain why you react differently to exercise regimens and essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins and vitamins. Your genes also determine your taste perception, food preferences, satiety responsiveness and metabolism.
That’s why some people, for example, are more likely to crave sugary and fatty foods and lack the sense of satiety. Some people try to lose weight by eating a low-fat diet, but that approach may not suit them if they are genetically more sensitive to the amount of sugar they consume rather than the amount of fat. The same idea applies to exercise effectiveness. For example, some people who are more resistant to burning fat during endurance exercise may complain that exercise does not “work” for them.
Genetic variants may interfere with the absorption and metabolism of vitamins and nutrients. For example, some people are unable to convert folic acid from supplements and folate from natural food sources into L-methylfolate, the active form of the B vitamin. These people could improve their health if they take L-methylfolate supplements instead.
While you cannot change your genetic makeup, you can take active steps to reduce the risk of certain diseases and optimize your health. Personalized genetic information allows you to focus on the modifiable lifestyle factors such as healthy diet, exercise regimen and appropriate supplement intake.
Knowing your genetic information and working on lifestyle changes empower you to:
- Increase endurance and athletic performance
- Prevent chronic diseases and live healthier
- Achieve and maintain a healthy weight
- Make effective lifestyle changes
- Look and feel your best
DNA DRUG SENSITIVITY GENETIC TEST
This test examines how your genes affect your response to hundreds of FDA-approved medications, from the simplest drugs like aspirin to those that are commonly prescribed for treating:
- Cardiovascular/heart disease
- Chronic pain
- Pediatric diseases
- Mental health conditions
- Neurological disorders
- Heartburn and Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms…
Knowing your medication metabolism rate, your physician may decide to increase or reduce the standard dose or even prescribe an alternative medication. Your physician will be able to select the right dosage helping you reduce the trial and error process, achieve therapeutic results and avoid adverse drug reactions.
Your physician will receive a detailed report indicating how you would respond to many of the prescribed medications from the FDA approved medications.
The report will also identify any drug-to-drug and gene-to-gene interactions from your current medication list. Your physician can use this information as a powerful and important tool to individualize your treatment plan and optimize the efficacy and safety of your prescribed medications.
Our Personalized Medicine Test offers patients and physicians an integrated approach to healthcare. Knowing your genetic information allows you and your physicians to:
- Lower risk of adverse drug reactions
- Prevent prescription drug abuse (specifically opioids pain relievers)
- Attain optimal drug therapy with suitable medications and dosage
- Reduce the trial and error process of prescribing new medications
- Reduce personal health care costs in the long run
- Improve treatment compliance

SKIN & ANTI AGING GENES TEST
Your skin is precious. Maximize the effects of your cosmetics and care products with knowledge deep within your skin. There are hundreds of skin types and you can learn in-depth about yours, to properly care for your body’s largest organ.
Skin and Anti-Aging Test provides clients with the unique genetics that define their skin health. The test utilizes genes involved in skin repair, maintenance, hydration, and defence, as well as related factors such as oil production and essential vitamins. Using a client’s unique DNA, Xfinity Lab’ Skin and Anti-Aging Test provides recommendations on how to better protect the skin, keep it sufficiently hydrated, avoid irritation, reduce inflammation, and enhance repair. These recommendations empower the client to take action, making changes to their diet, supplements, and cosmetic products to help delay the aging process and maintain healthier, more beautiful skin. And we know skin care is expensive – a genetic test can help a client better direct their limited resources to optimize their personal skin care.
Some people’s genetics predispose them to wrinkles, sun damage, and skin spots. Knowing their genetic information can help them choose the right products to counter these effects and prevent damage in the future. Individuals deficient in vitamin A or predisposed to wrinkling may benefit from creams with retinoids, which help boost skin renewal.
People with pigmentation deficiencies or higher sun-sensitivity may benefit from products with aloe vera, vitamin D, and sun blocking components. People with higher oil production can use masks and certain creams that can help reduce oils that clog pores and leave them prone to infections that cause pimples and acne.
Diet is another tremendous part of good skin health. Knowing vitamin predispositions for essential vitamins A and D can help a person maintain health and clear skin by adding more foods rich in these vitamins to their diet. Some people are also naturally better at fighting free radicals than others – these people can adjust their diets to improve their antioxidant intake with fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, spinach, or brussel sprouts, as well as nutritional supplements.
Skin health is essential for both men and women. Xfinity Lab’ The Skin and Anti-Aging Test doesn’t just appeal to the beauty market – people looking to simply improve the way they feel can also benefit by learning the genetics that defines the health of their largest organ – the skin.
Our Skin and Anti-Aging Test is the most comprehensive test on the market, providing information on 26 unique genes associated with skin health.
In addition, Xfinity Lab continues its focus on delivering information in a clear and intuitive way that emphasizes action that can be taken.
