SPORTS NUTRITION GENETIC TEST
PREMIUM GENETIC TEST
Why know your genes?
How many times have we heard or commented on an athlete, “this guy has a special genetics“? Without having a deep knowledge about the term “genetics”, we know that there is something that makes us different from others. At present, genetic studies are used in so-called Personalised Medicine, considered by many experts the evolution of traditional medicine and the future of it. Medical specialties such as Oncology, Gynecology, Pediatrics, Rare Diseases, Dermatology, etc., use genetic information for the benefit of their patients improving their quality of life and health.
“The Sports Medicine and with this the athletes can not stay away from such advances in the field of molecular biology that allow to improve the personalisation of physical activity and nutrition, providing the athlete a better general health and optimal performance.”
Developed by our specialists in genetics and sports medicine, based on our own research started in 2009, used in professional sport and protected by patent, our genetic tests offer you objective and reliable information in two fundamental areas in all sports: injury prevention and nutrition.
“In Sports Medicine Genomics we are pioneers and experts in analysing and interpreting the genetic component and its relation to the sport so that professionals or amateurs regardless of the type of sport that they practice obtain the greater benefit of it and improve its performance.”
Although recent studies raise the genetic influence on athletic ability to 50% and describe more than 240 genetic variations related to sports qualities such as speed, strength, endurance and predisposition to injury, it is important to note that not everything is in the genes. We are as we are, with our qualities and defects by the sum of the genetic component and the influence of the “environment”. Parameters such as nutrition, climate, load training and competition, sports equipment, lifestyle, and so on, play a relevant role alongside genetics in our sports performance and health. That is why we recommend that genetic results should be taken into account with other external variables by sports specialists who guide you to a safe and appropriate sport practice according to your characteristics and objectives.
