Why is knowing my genetic makeup so important?

While we are more than 99.9% similar in our genetic makeup, there is approximately 0.1% of DNA which makes us unique. Changes in the sequence of nucleotides, also called polymorphisms, can cause differences in the character or amount of protein encoded by a given gene. This is reflected in many characteristics, such as eye colour, muscle structure, body height, body weight, metabolism of caffeine, lactose, fats and carbohydrates, needs for vitamins, etc.

Knowing your genetic predispositions – the needs and preferences of your body – enables you to use your full potential and protect your long-term health.
