Understanding Your Body's Code
Discovering your body through DNA testing: finding the right diet, exercise and nutrition has never been so easy.
“Listen Your Genes are Talking to you…”
A gene is a segment of DNA that is coded to pass along a certain trait; it has a specific task for example determining your blood group, colour of your eyes etc. Genes are the simplest building blocks of heredity. They are grouped together in specific patterns within a person’s chromosomes, forming the unique “blueprint” for every physical and biological characteristic of that person.
Chromosomes are made up of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules. Humans have 46 chromosomes arranged in pairs in every living cell of our bodies. When the egg and sperm join at conception, half of each chromosomal pair is inherited from each parent.
Your genome has survived 3.8 billion years of modification to get where it is in your cells today.
DNA is more complex than any of the new innovations or products on the market today. Over 3 billion letters in our human code are responsible for building around 25,000 genes that make you who you are. These 3 billion letter contain the instructions for both physical and psychological qualities.
As well as determining characteristics such as eye and hair color, your genes can also directly cause or increase your risk of a wide range of medical conditions.
What does Just4Me Lifestyle do?
Our mission is to provide individuals with a solution to a better life. We achieve this through utilising the latest scientific discoveries that are in accordance with the highest quality standards, transformed into applicative solutions for practical application. Our goal is to make genetic testing and its benefits available to everyone. Genetic testing offers solutions that significantly contribute to achieving better health and wellbeing while preventing health risks and diseases due to genetic predisposition.
“WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY PERSON WHO WANTS TO KNOW THEIR GENETIC BACKGROUND SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO SO.”
By working together with the world’s leading and most innovative biotech companies we can offer genetic testing that enables individuals to discover new insights about their body and its functions.
Through a simple saliva test, we can analyse over 100 genes related to nutrition, diet, fitness, and even psychology. Due to genetics, the same kind of training doesn’t work for everyone therefore a personalised approach is essential and absolutely necessary for optimal diet and training results. With this information we can provide guidelines allowing you to take appropriate actions in order to optimise your athletic performance, improve your health and wellbeing, positively affect the quality of your life and minimize the possibility of developing diseases and health related problems
We are transparent with the genes we analyse with all our genetic analyses first accepted by the American societies of genetics & genomics and are backed up by the last two decades of scientific discovery with over 70,000 scientific papers published.
We are not just limited to fitness and nutrition and one of our goals is addressing the main issues in the region which is obesity and health related problems. We also offer a test dealing with disease susceptibility and prevention and access to our sister medical company Just4Me Genetics, offering further medical analyses (ideal for looking into family hereditary diseases).
Genetics alone cannot provide you with improved performance and lifestyle, which is why it is important to have the best coaches, facilities, scientists and optimal environmental conditions. The Just4Me team of experts and our best-in-class partners and clinics help you along the way, taking you on a journey to achieving your goals; whether it’s weight loss, gaining muscle, injury prevention, disease prevention or just gaining greater vitality. With your genetic analysis our expert team and partners will optimise your training, nutrition, recovery and injury prevention programs, working with everyone from kids to professional athletes and even the elderly.
It is never too late to discover your genes.
It is never too late to discover your genes but children especially can benefit from a young age. We strongly believe that education is an important factor and by offering more than just a DNA test individuals gain greater benefits and improved results through understanding. By educating children about their genome, they can learn about foods and exercises suited to their bodies while also preventing injuries which is a common problem later in life. At the same time any potential health risks and diseases are flagged and important recommendations can be provided.
Through our blogs and seminars we aim to educate the region (and the world) about the benefits of genetic testing using the latest scientific discoveries to help achieve a better life, while also preventing diseases and health related problems for you and your family.
