Why choose Vitl?
Personalised health plan: As industry-leading experts in the field of personalised nutrition, we know that your results are only useful if you understand what you can do with them. So not only will you get a breakdown of your genetic traits, you’ll also get personalised recommendations and actionable insights based on your results from our qualified in-house experts.
Integrated solution: We’re the first company in the world to enable the integration of your DNA results alongside blood test results and dietary and lifestyle information. Supplement recommendations cannot be made on DNA information alone, but taken alongside your current blood vitamin levels and diet, we’re able to tailor-make vitamins based on your needs to ensure you’re getting only what your body really needs.
Reliable results: The genetic traits we cover in your report go through a rigorous selection process to ensure they’re based on the most credible science. Whilst other brands may test for a larger number of less well-researched traits, we believe in quality over quantity, which is why only cover traits based on the strongest, peer-reviewed evidence to ensure you’re getting the most reliable results.
What won’t be covered in my DNA report?
Disease risk: There will be no scary surprises in your DNA health report. Instead, we’ll focus on the genetic traits directly related to daily wellbeing to enable you to make the healthiest choices day-to-day, which we believe will have the greatest benefit to you in the long term.
Current blood vitamin levels: Your DNA report will show if you have a predisposition to being unable to absorb certain vitamins efficiently. This can indicate which vitamin levels are likely to be low, however, vitamin levels are affected by many factors, such as diet, sunlight exposure and level of physical activity. To find out your current vitamin level status, see our Vitamin & Cholesterol Blood Test here.
