Genetic solutions
a better life for you

Genetix23 develops personal genetic solutions for you, the individual. We deliver highly objective and informative results. We’ve helped our customers worldwide live a better life.

About us


We believe we have a commitment to society, to make genetic diagnostics accessible to everybody so that they can make better choices for their life ahead.

Personal genetic analysis is the process of identifying genetic susceptibilities that have been proven, for example, to raise the risk of developing certain conditions, or being suited to certain food types or even what type of exercise they are better suited to.

By identifying your personal genetic traits, we can give you information which can help you make better lifestyle choices.

We have made a considerable investment in developing our tests with our team of experts which consists of Geneticists, Doctors, Nutritionists, Dermatologists as well as other key advisors and personnel.

Genetix23 is part of the new 4P’s of medicine which in simple terms are:

      • Preventive. Knowing in advance what to avoid and why, and adapting our way of life to prevent illness development.
      • Participatory. The individual participates by deciding about their health.The attention is pro-active, not reactive.
      • Personalized. Categorizing each person according to their susceptibility to determine illness or therapeutic interventions.
      • Predictive. It is not so much about waiting, or even avoiding something that will occur, but more about knowing what will happen and preventing it from happening in the future.

How it works

Our tests analyse a number of genetic variants which are called ‘single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs’ which give us information about certain health parameters (how you assimilate nutrients, eating behaviour, exercise response, obesity, cardiovascular or diabetes risk , skin problems….) The SNPs explain about 90% of human variability.

The objective of our unique tests are that once you have your results, you can, together with a medical, nutritional, fitness or other professional adjust your life habits according to the genetic results you have to better reach the objectives you are trying to achieve. Our scientific team selects the most relevant genetic variants for each study area.

The analysis is done using the latest qPCR Arrays technology. This real-time study of specific DNA fragments is where the genetic variants we want to study are located. By using this highly specialized technology, we can determine the genetic variants present in each individual. All sample preparation, sample extraction and genetic analysis is handled by fully accredited and certified laboratories.

All we require is a sample of your DNA which is taken from your saliva using a simple non-evasive swab. You then register your sample with us on-online, pop the swab in the post and approximately 4 weeks after we receive your sample your report will be ready!

Tests

Our genetic tests have been developed for people who would like to understand their predisposition to suffer from various health conditions. Once you have your report you can discuss the findings with your chosen professional to make any lifestyle changes which could help to mitigate any of the risks detailed.

Health

If you are looking for a comprehensive overview of what the future could hold for you then our HEALTH test is for you. This test reports on 56 different factors that include:-

  • Weight control.
  • Type 2 Diabetes risk.
  • Risk of Obesity.
  • Cardiovascular risk (hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, heart attack, cerebrovascular accident, coronary problems).
  • Oxidative stress.
  • Metabolic syndrome.
  • Control of certain other pathological risks.
  • Achieve a weight increase/loss (controlling lipids, carbohydrates and other nutrients intake).
  • Reduce/eliminate symptoms in case of having gastrointestinal problems (linked to alimentary intolerances).
  • Assimilation of up to 750 food types.
  • Select the right sport to practice according to the results that you are looking for.
  • Immune system improvement (due to a correct vitamin and mineral intake).
  • Eating behaviour (lack of appetite, nutritional behaviour and satiety)

Nutrition

Our NUTRITION test is an in-depth look at how your body deals with the assimilation of up to 750 different food types. It will also report on 27 other factors that include:-

  • Achieve weight loss or weight gain (controlling lipids consumption, carbohydrate and other nutrients).
  • Reduce/eliminate symptoms in case of having gastrointestinal problems (linked to alimentary intolerances).
  • Immune system improvement (due to a correct vitamin and mineral intake).
  • Exercise response; select the right sport to practice to move the fat deposits.
  • Alimentary intolerances (Intolerance to lactose and gluten (celiac disease).
  • Risk of being overweight or obese.
  • Nutrient assimilation (lipids, fats, carbohydrates, antioxidants, vitamins…).
  • Assimilation of up to 750 food types.
  • Eating behaviour (Control of appetite and satiety).
  • Metabolism of caffeine and alcohol.

Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a very important immunity role in protecting the body against pathogens as well as excessive water loss. It also insulates and regulates temperature as well as having many other important functions and protection mechanisms.

In addition to reporting on 17 different factors including those detailed below, our SKIN test also provides recommendations of the most relevant properties which are found in cosmetics and skin care products for you to use:-

  • Skin oxidative stress risk that can produce early skin aging.
  • Antioxidant capability of the skin.
  • Skin elasticity and hydration capacity which are important to avoid wrinkle development, inflammation and certain dermatological conditions.
  • Freckle, acne and spot development.
  • Resistance to sun exposure.
  • Collagen capacity and benefits related to structural collagen.
  • Risk of suffering atopic dermatitis and allergic rhinitis.

FAQ

We are surrounded by more health advice than ever, but what's really right for you?

In the past we could only answer this question in a very general way, everyone got the same recommendation on everything from nutrition to skin health and everything in between.

Now, you can advance beyond one-size-fits-all suggestions and results could point you toward the prevention measures most suited to you.

Genetix23 DNA Tests empowers individuals and their consulting professionals with the information needed to make more educated decisions about their needs. The key being prevention, Genetix23 DNA Test are designed for early awareness and intervention before an issue can occur.

Consumers are faced with bewildering choice in the Healthcare Market. Genetix23 DNA Tests help to take the guess work away. If a client has a genetic variation making them more prone to something then one should focus more efforts on products and lifestyle changes that target that particular issue before the signs even begin to appear. The great thing about a genetic profile is that it will never change; the results will apply for the rest of your life.

If we talk about dependability as the scientific accuracy of the process, it’s as predictable as can be, currently up to 99.96%. There is that small margin for error however we have technical measures in place to ensure very high accuracy.

Your genes play a big role on outcomes but it’s also important to realise that genes are not the only determinate, for example one’s lifestyle and diet can also play a role.

No, there is no need to retake a Genetic Test as your genes will never change.

In terms of testing DNA, your DNA is the same throughout your entire life.

This is a once in a lifetime investment that will ensure you never need waste your money again on products and treatments that are probably totally unsuitable for you.

Genetix23 takes your privacy very seriously.

To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we use a range of technical and administrative measures to protect the information we collect about you our client.

A gene is a segment of your DNA (short for deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule that contains the instructions for how, when and where your body makes each of the many thousands of proteins required for life.

Your genes can also tell you whether you are more predisposed or not to certain pathologies, nutritional responses or skin behaviour.

Gene variations are slight changes in your genetic code that are present in at least one percent of the population. For example, one genetic “letter” (A, T, C, or G) may be replaced by another. These variations can lead to different processes in the body, just as altering one letter in a word can completely change its meaning; for instance, from “g”ap to “c”ap.

When a variation affects only one genetic letter, it is called a “single nucleotide polymorphism” (or SNP, pronounced “snip”).

Because of these variations (SNPs):-

* your predisposition to suffer from certain patholigies is different from the next person.
* your skin ages differently.
* you absorb and use nutrients differently.
* respond to exercise, and cope with stress differently.
