Did you know that a vegan diet isn’t safe for everyone? In fact, it’s estimated that up to 30% of vegans lack an essential enzyme that can lead to vitamin A deficiency. The good news is that it’s easy to check if you’re susceptible and maintain your healthy plant-based life with the right supplements. Your DNA has clear answers, and we can help you find them.
Do you suffer from stomach cramps, bloating and digestive discomfort? It could be down to lactose intolerance. Not everyone can digest lactose (the sugars in milk). If you have noticed a connection between dairy and digestive distress, a lactose intolerance test – based on genetics – gives a clear answer, which is really helpful for managing your symptoms or investigating further.
Coeliac disease is a serious illness that affects around 1/100 people. It’s not an allergy or intolerance; it’s an autoimmune condition that means that you can’t safely consume food or drink that contains gluten. Around 70% of coeliacs are undiagnosed – symptoms are often attributed to other conditions, and sometimes don’t show at all. Thankfully, now there’s a reliable way to know your coeliac risk status: 99.9% accurate DNA testing for coeliac risk.
Many of us enjoy tea, coffee and other treats that contain caffeine – like chocolate – with no adverse effects. However, a large percentage of the population have an increased sensitivity to caffeine which can lead to a range of symptoms – from anxiety to stomach upsets to tremors. Meanwhile, some of us need more caffeine to experience a ‘buzz’. Checking your sensitivity helps you manage your consumption to always feel your best.
Alcohol is such a big part of our culture – whether it’s a glass of wine with dinner, or a pint or two after work. But some people tolerate alcohol better than others. If you’ve noticed that you flush after drinking, tend to get bad headaches or nausea, or suffer debilitating hangovers after moderate alcohol consumption, you could be one of the 1/10 people who has an alcohol sensitivity.
