People who are physically active tend to live longer. Regular exercise is important for stress reduction, weight management, brain functioning, detoxification, and much more.
High performance athletes demand more from their nutrition and training as they reach for faster times, better performance.
Aerobic Performance, Nutrition, Injury + Recovery
There are more than 70 genes linked to athletic performance for both the elite athlete as well as the weekend warrior. Genes can impact the risk of injury, recovery time, power vs. endurance, oxidative stress and inflammation, along with the utilization of nutrients associated with aerobic activity, strength, and conditioning.
With genomic testing and interpretation, clinicians can tailor a nutrition and exercise program to an individual’s needs, achieving higher levels of performance and minimizing exercise-induced injuries.
The Ultimate Wellness genomic test provides information valuable to athletes of all levels, including:
Aerobic Performance, Eating Behaviors, Inflammation and Injury, Methylation, Nutrient Utilization, Oxidative Stress, Power vs Endurance, Recovery Time, Traumatic Brain Injury.
