1. Why should I use ProSports Personalised NutraGenomix™ testing for my nutritional needs?
Everyone is Biochemically unique, so therefore will react to various nutrients and medications in different ways.
Without such an advanced testing method such as this, each individual would then be required to calculate what they require on a daily basis by guessing.
ProSports NutraGenomix™ testing is 100% science backed and is a far more superior an accurate way of determining your specific requirements.
The information is then used to ensure a personalised program to suit your individual gene type.

2. I have read lots of information on various supplements, could I use these instead?
Taking supplements randomly and not really have an understanding of why, is not recommended. There has been a  great deal of research which has determined that there can be a negative effect by having too many supplements on a daily basis and in some cases may be harmful.
The one size fits all is not acceptable, NutraGenomix ™ testing avoids mistakes.

3. How do I take the test and when are the results returned?

It is a very simple saliva test, you are required to spit into the test kit provided making sure the saliva is clear and up to the line marked on the test kit.
Send the collected sample to ProSports Nutrition in the pre-addressed, postage paid bag. Your confidential results are typically delivered in 3 weeks. All 45-50 minute consultations are either performed in person ( if you are local) or via the phone. Your full report will be sent to you either via email or post. It is required that you have your profile in front of you during the consultation.

What are the details of the NutraGenomix™ Testing?
1. After receiving your sample, ProSports lab extracts the DNA. (All samples are bar coded for confidentiality and control).
2. Next, the lab amplifies the region of the DNA containing the SNP (single nucleotide
polymorphism) using what is called a PCR (polymerase chain reaction).
3. The SNP is measured by a single nucleotide base extensions method called SNP-IT.
Technology.
4. The results of these SNP measurements are translated and a confidential report called a Personalised NutraGenomix™ Profile is prepared. These reports are NOT computer generated; they are performed manually to ensure individuality is accounted for.

6. How accurate is this testing?

7. What does Basic Support, Additional support and Maximum support mean?

Basic support indicates that no nutritional support or lifestyle changes are required. Or that the DNA changes have no negative influence.
Additional support indicates that the individual has received a gene variant and that they will only benefit from moderate amounts of nutritional support and lifestyle interventions
Maximum support means that the individual received genetic characteristics from both parents and those genes have been expressed. These patients will benefit from maximum levels of nutritional support and lifestyle intervention.
In addition the term Maximum support has been used for example in the lipid panel to indicate those DNA changes that are critical to the management of the individual being assessed.
Each gene is assessed by the practitioner in relation to those gene variants requiring Additional support or Maximum support. An interpretation is associated with each gene variant. This information must be used within the context of the patient’s clinical and family history.
A summary and recommended therapy report is provided for the lipid panel; each gene variant studied is part of a comprehensive biological process which requires further interpretation.
Please note that only genes marked as Additional support or Maximum support will be expanded on in the Gene Summary for each panel.
Your practitioner will advise you in relation to recommendations and follow up.
