What is the Active Metabolism Genetic Test?
Everyone who engages in sport is well aware that training begins at the table: a proper diet is fundamental to obtaining better performance. Thanks to the Active Metabolism Test any genetic predisposition to alterations in the metabolism of fats, sugars and homocysteine can be analysed as can the resistance to stress. Knowing one’s own metabolic profile is an additional tool which athletes can use to adjust training, personalise nutrition and assess whether supplements should be taken.

The active metabolism test is easy to perform, using a dry buccal swab which you use to collect a sample of cells from the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. Once received by the Lifebrain Genetics Laboratory, the DNA is extracted and analysed to show which gene variants are present.
