The genes we analyze directly influence how much fat you absorb, how your body reacts to exercise, diet and how you can best manage weight gain/loss.
FABP2-54 Fatty Acid Binding Protein: Different polymorphisms on this gene determine how much fat from your diet you absorb into your body.
ADRB2 positions 16 and 27 Beta-3 Adrenergic Receptor: These positions on this gene are commonly researched to gain knowledge about obesity. Independently and in certain combinations, the results from this gene explain what sources of energy your body uses the most efficiently and how you process and store fats and carbohydrates.
ADRB3-64 Beta-3 Adrenergic Receptor: Overall energy expenditure, including exercise, stimulates these receptors, which regulate the breakdown of fat. The polymorphisms on this gene allow us to determine how much exercise your body needs to work efficiently in order to breakdown the fat.
PPARG-12 Peroxisome Proliferator Receptor Gamma: Is a nuclear receptor that can have a dominating role over the metabolic processes controlled by the nervous system. PPARG regulates how the body metabolizes fat and carbohydrates and how fat is stored in the body. It activates genes that stimulate fat uptake. PPARG is also associated with glucose sensitivity, insulin resistance and resistance to weight loss; the degree to which you may experience these ailments is determined by the unique variations.
