WHAT IS THE YOU. GENETIC TEST KIT?
While most health recommendations provide general guidelines based on statistics, we take a different approach. Advances in genomic science have created opportunities to understand our bodies and make informed health decisions in ways not previously possible.
Our DNA kit analyzes specific genetic SNPs, hand-selected by physicians and scientists for their importance to health, wellness, and human potential. By analyzing your unique genetic code, we can create a personalized plan to optimize your health, taking into account your genetic advantages, predispositions, and disadvantages. Understanding your DNA is critical to achieving your health goals, and our approach prioritizes your individual needs and well-being.
HOW ARE MY RESULTS DETERMINED?
Genetic testing utilizes a physical specimen from the body (saliva, blood, or other tissues) to reveal information about a person’s chromosomes or their genes. In addition to identifying key genes, information is evaluated about areas on each gene that may differ between people. These areas are known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). We use the term genotype to describe the outcome of your individual genetic tests.
We provide a genetic analysis that indicates which gene combinations you have in each category. You will receive a rating based on our calculated score for each trait in a category. Some categories only have one gene associated with that trait; other categories have several genes associated with that trait. Our calculated score reflects the potential combined influences from one or more genes.
There is a tendency to view genotype results as a definitive diagnosis and to assume that you absolutely have certain traits, when this is not what a genetic analysis measures. Your results only suggest that there is a greater or lesser chance that you may exhibit certain traits or responses.
To empower you with the best genetic testing knowledge possible, we have established stringent criteria for studies that we use to help us evaluate the potential impact of your genotype for each gene tested. We select the largest and most scientifically valid genome-wide association studies to calculate a score for the different genes or gene combinations for all genes tested.
Your results indicate which gene combinations you have in each category, and you receive a rating for each trait in a category.
WHY IS MY GENOTYPE IMPORTANT?
Your genotype reveals the blueprint for your body. The ratings we provide you with reflect your genotypes for each gene or set of genes. This shows you your potential characteristics or traits. If your results show the presence of certain genotypes that suggest that you will exhibit either an “enhanced” or “below average” response, for example, this does not mean that the outcome associated with that genotype is definitely how your body will or does react.
Your phenotype is the physical manifestation, or expression, of your genotype. It’s important to recognize that your phenotype may be different than your genotype—not all the genetic variations seen in an analysis such as this are necessarily manifested. That’s because how the genes that you have are expressed is largely affected by your lifestyle and other environmental factors
While your analysis might show that you have an increased or decreased likelihood for having a low pain tolerance, it does not mean that you will, in fact, express that trait. Your phenotype for the trait may be different than the genotype the analysis shows.
Your genotype results are not a definitive diagnosis. This analysis only measures your odds for different outcomes, or the likelihood that your phenotype will express what your genotype predicts. The field of genomics is a relatively new, but growing, area of research. Much still needs to be discovered to fully understand genes and their interactions with each other, and the role in which other influences such as diet, exercise, and the environment play in whether you will express a trait associated with a certain genotype.
That said, results from a genetic analysis may provide insights into how your body might function optimally. If you have a certain genotype for a specific trait, knowing how it might affect you and adjusting your lifestyle behaviors to maximize this information could make a difference in your health and well-being. Our team considers the results of your genetic analysis, along with an analysis of personal factors that you report, which may also influence how your body responds to provide personalized suggestions that may help you achieve the best results
Your analyzed genotype results are followed by a detailed explanation and success strategy. Our medical team has evaluated your potential response and taken into account what evidence-based research says about how lifestyle behaviors can help you attain and maintain optimum health and wellness. While we can’t change our genes, we can change our behaviors to take advantage of what our genes say about our bodies.
WILL MY GENETIC DATA BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?
NO. Your privacy and security is of utmost importance to us. Octo Health never sells or shares information without your explicit consent. We will not share your genetic data with employers, insurance companies, public databases or 3rd party marketers.
CAN I ORDER A DNA TEST FOR MY CHILD?
Yes, you can order a test for your child. Parental consent is required for children 16 and under.
Sequencing your child's DNA can provide valuable insights into their genetic makeup and help make better informed health decisions throughout their life.
It is important to note that the accompanying recommendations for fitness and nutrition are calculated for adults and may not yet be directly applicable to a child under 18.
Additionally, this test focuses solely on actionable health insights and does not screen for inherited risk of genetic diseases.
ARE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS THIRD-PARTY VERIFIED?
Yes, our supplements undergo independent, third-party testing to ensure the highest standards of quality, purity, and safety. These verifications are conducted by independent, accredited laboratories, providing you with the assurance that our products meet or exceed industry benchmarks.
CAN YOU PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE QUALITY OF YOUR SUPPLEMENTS?
We take quality seriously. Our supplements are crafted in the United States in and FDA-registered laboratory with the utmost care - using premium ingredients and adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). We are committed to transparency and proudly share detailed product specifications and quality control information.
