DNA Health Test + Consultation
DNA Health is our flagship DNA Test. It uses the latest scientific research to give guidance on how we can use nutrition and lifestyle interventions to optimise our everyday health.
It provides insight in a number of key areas including oxidative stress, lipid metabolism, methylation, insulin resistance and many more besides.
Take the test and book your interpretation session with one of our DNALife accredited coaches and we’ll give you simple, straightforward tips on optimising your nutrition and lifestyle around your DNA.
Take a proactive approach to your health
We all have both genetic vulnerabilities and strengths, and by learning what these strengths and vulnerabilities are, and uncovering any genetic predispositions, we can optimise the outcome and get control over our own health instead of just leaving it up to chance whether or not we will live a long and healthy life.
DNA health looks at gene variants involved in lipid metabolism, bone health and insulin sensitivity. These are all areas that are important aspects of a healthy life and that can lead to disease under certain lifestyle-related circumstances. With knowledge of your specific gene variants in these areas, you can tailor a lifestyle that optimises health.
Strengthen your body’s resilience
Every day we are faced by various environmental toxins and stressors that will inevitably put a strain on our bodies. We are greatly influenced by the food we eat, the air we breathe, the amount of sleep and exercise we get, the water we drink, the stress levels we experience, and more.
DNA Health provides insights within areas related to our body’s level of resilience. Some genetic variants are associated with a higher risk of oxidative stress and inflammation as well as a lower level of detoxification. If these SNPs are present, it is very important to incorporate measures that will help strengthen the body’s overall level of resilience.
Optimise your nutritional intake
The way our bodies respond to different macro and micronutrients will greatly affect our overall level of health. For example, our immune system is dependent on certain vitamins and minerals to function properly and our gut health can be greatly affected by potential food sensitivities. Moreover, our DNA is highly dependent on a process called methylation, which in turn is dependent on our intake and metabolisation of certain B vitamins.
Some of the specific gene variants analysed in DNA Health can provide insight into these areas and thereby let us know if we need to support our body’s ability to properly digest, absorb and metabolise crucial nutrients as well as drive methylation.

What you get with your DNA Health Test
Get your test kit. Follow the simple instructions to use a mouth swab to gather some cells for our laboratories to analyse for your DNA. Easy to use. No blood draws. All of your information is kept safe and confidential.
Most DNA tests leave it up to you to try and understand what the results mean for your lifestyle and nutrition. We think it's too complex and important for you to be left on your own. Our DNALife accredited coaches will translate your results into a simple interpretation of what your DNA is telling us along with some simple, easy to adopt (and often delicious) recommendations about lifestyle and nutrition tailored to your DNA.
You’ll go away with a Report that provides detailed insights into your DNA and what it means for a range of biochemical and metabolic processes as well as a clear simple summary about what this means for YOUR everyday health and some personalised suggestions for lifestyle changes, nutrition and supplementation. You’ll also get discounts on bundles of ingredients and supplements tailored to your life and a recipe for your personalised smoothie.
Become part of the Nordic Health community of people living a DNALife and we’ll keep you topped up with loads of inspiring content, advice, recipes and ideas to help tailor your lifestyle and nutrition to your DNA. And if you want more support, advice or to keep learning more about your DNA and Functional Health our coaches are on hand to give advice or more information.
