DNA Mind Test + Consultation
DNA Mind analyses 30 genes which have been shown to have significant associations with key mental health symptoms.
It tests for genetic variations associated with changes in key biological areas that affect mental health. Weaknesses in these areas, together with environmental factors, increase risk for development of disorders related to mental health. The areas of mental health reported in DNA Mind include: Neurodegenerative disorders, mood regulation, and addictive behaviour.
Take the test and book your interpretation session with one of our DNALife accredited coaches who will provide you with a personalised plan to support your mental wellbeing.
Get advice on how to prevent neurodegenerative disorders
Taking care of our brain health is just as important as taking care of the rest of our body, but without knowledge of our own individual needs and prerequisites, it can be hard to know how to best do it.
DNA Mind analyses genetic variants related to certain biological areas that, if altered, have been associated with increased risk for mild cognitive impairment and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease. With knowledge of your genotypes, you can incorporate preventative measures and take steps to optimise your neurological health.
Get insight into your genotypes related to mood regulation
Mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and bipolarity are increasingly common psychological conditions that can cause great discomfort and suffering for those afflicted.
Certain gene variants related to for example methylation, stress response and cell signaling can greatly impact our mood and the way we respond to various stressors in life. The results from DNA Mind will give you both an insight into your own genotypes related to mood regulation as well as specific lifestyle and nutritional advice to combat any issues and optimise the outcomes.
Learn about addictive behaviour risk and management
Addictive behaviour can manifest in a range of various disorders such as substance use, eating disorders and adrenaline-seeking and risk-taking behaviour. These disorders are complex in their nature and are influenced both by environmental factors and genes.
As a part of maintaining good mental health, it can be of great value to learn about what genetic variants you might carry in this area. DNA Mind tests for gene variations associated with dopamine response, the endocannabinoid pathway as well as the GABAergic pathway. All of these areas have been implicated in addictive behaviours, and insights about specific gene expressions can help prevent these disorders from evolving.

What you get with your DNA Mind 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.
