Rise And Shine With Vitagene

March 12, 2018 — 2 Comments

Imagine you could get a curated supplement package each month delivered to you with all of the supplements you need to feel your absolute best and give you the boost in areas you may be lacking due to your DNA. Well my friends, that service is available here and now with Vitagene. From my research on companies that specialize in Personalized Nutrition based on DNA, Vitagene is the only company that currently offers this unique service.

 Vitagene provides an extensive online Supplement database with the latest scientific research on thousands of Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs, Plants, Macronutrients, Amino Acids, Elements, Hormones, and more. It’s perfect for the aspiring Bio-Hacker and for anyone interested in health and wellness. And as far as their actual supplements that they ship to customers, the quality is superb. Not only are the supplements formulated from the highest quality ingredients, they are free from additives and fillers.

As you can see in the photo above, the supplements come to you in two easy to use packages, one for AM and the other for PM use. They also provide you with a personal sheet that explains in detail why each supplement is included for you. I have started my supplement package from Vitagene and last night I had some of the best sleep I’ve had in years. The supplement they gave me for PM is Magnesium.

Vitagene also offers other reports in addition to Supplementation, including the following –

  • Ancestry
  • Diet
  • Fitness

The process is really easy. Like most DNA analysis services, you give a sample of your saliva and send it back in the self addressed box. From there, you can log in to your personal account on the Vitagene website and begin to answer the detailed questionnaire about yourself. Some of the categories include Health Goals, Nutrition, Lifestyle, and Medical History. I explain it in greater detail in this YouTube video. Be sure to check it out!

The next part of the Health Report that I want to share with you is Diet. It shouldn’t surprise you that 90% of diets fail. And as noted by Vitagene, this is likely because each person’s body is unique. Vitagene’s team of scientists have put together a curated diet based on your DNA profile using your specific traits that will help keep you healthy by being preventative.

The Diet portion of the Health Report includes the following information –

  • Tailored Food List
  • Risk of Weight Gain
  • Gluten Sensitivity
  • Alcohol Metabolism
  • Emotional Eating
  • Cholesterol Levels
  • Weight Regain After Dieting
  • Triglyceride Levels
  • Fat Intake
  • Lactose Sensitivity
  • Sodium Intake

What’s cool about the Tailored Food List is that it considers your responses from the Nutrition portion of the questionnaire you complete. Because I eat plant-based, my Tailored Food List was adjusted for my way of eating and I will share with you an example of the VitaMenu they provided. There is also a helpful explanation in this report that summarizes my VitaMenu and how each category will benefit my health. When you click on each category it explains why the category is recommended for you. For instance, when I click High Protein in my VitaMenu the reason I am given by their team of scientists is for my blood sugar. This is incredibly helpful to know.

I am really impressed at how all of the information is thoroughly considered and the final recommendations are solid. For instance, in the portion of my VitaMenu below, the fruit recommendations are all low glycemic. This is intentional because of what my DNA revealed regarding blood sugar. The dairy options aren’t animal products and although I checked off plant-based, the Vitagene team confirmed that because my DNA showed Lactose Intolerance they wouldn’t have suggested animal product dairy to me either way. I share these examples, because it’s great to know that the report you get back is the absolute best information for your personal DNA and lifestyle. Because of this, you can confidently apply this information to your daily routine.

Also, I’d like to share with you the Exercise portion of the Health Report. Did you know that your genes can determine physiological traits like endurance, fat burning, ability and metabolism? Well, they can. The information from this portion of the report can help you make sense of the best way to workout for your body and to attain your goals better and faster.

The Exercise portion of the Health Report includes the following information –

  • Customized Exercise Plan
  • Power vs. Endurance Exercise
  • Muscle Strength
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Exercise Behavior
  • Blood Pressure Response
  • Weight Response to Exercise

When you visit the VitaFit portion of your results, you get to select your favorite ways to workout. Once you do this, your customized workout plan is created. Vitagene shares the following information on how their team decides to create your plan. “Using your biometrics (height, weight, age), activity preferences, and exercise-related genetics. Your exercise plan is designed to fulfill your needs, while remaining flexible to your lifestyle. The plan detailed below has been calculated to remain consistent with your recommended daily calorie intake. To achieve maximum results, select the activities and schedule that most closely matches your lifestyle.” Pretty cool, right?  If you are curious, this is what my VitaFit results looked like once I clicked my favorite ways to workout.

 

From here, you can scroll down and look at the recommendations in each exercise category in greater detail. For instance, under Dancing, my report included Zumba, Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Aerobics, and Ballroom. Each of these options had a detailed paragraph that followed with even more insight into the workout, including how many minutes, how many times per week, and the calorie burn amount as a result. This menu gives you the freedom to switch your favorite ways to workout so you can play around until you create your ideal workout plan for your current lifestyle.

The last point I would like to share with you about Vitagene is regarding my overall experience with their customer service. At every stage of my experience, Vitagene’s customer service was exceptional. If you log in to their website you will see that a pop up window appears towards the bottom right and if you have a question they will promptly respond to you. Also, after I received my results I had a 15 minute consultation with 2 of their team members who were very helpful and happy to answer any questions I had regarding my reports and their company.
