About the Improve Fitness
Fitness enthusiasts have long been aware that athleticism is not just a result of exercise. Nutrients, sleep, choosing the right type of exercise - there are numerous factors that influence your athletic performance. These include your genetics, which determine your athletic potential, endurance type and muscle fibre (twitch) type. Your intake of amino acids is also relevant; these are crucial for your muscle strength.
The Improve Fitness Test Bundle consists of two cerascreen® health tests that will help you improve your fitness and athletic performance: the Amino Acid Test and the DNA Fitness Test.
DNA Fitness Test
Every person has their individual predispositions when it comes to sports and fitness. Your endurance level, how exactly your muscle fibres function and the likelihood of intense training causing you oxidative stress and bone loss - these and many other factors are influenced by your genetics.
For the cerascreen® DNA Fitness Test, a specialised medical laboratory analyses six gene variants in a saliva sample. The analysis provides you with information about your predispositions. With this information, you can adapt your individual fitness programme and diet to suit your DNA.
This way, you can help optimise your performance and reduce health risks caused by intensive training.
Amino Acid Test
Amino acids are the basic building blocks when it comes to proteins. Like all living beings, humans need amino acids to carry out important functions in their bodies - from hormone production to strengthening the immune system and developing muscle.
Some amino acids – namely, the essential amino acids – must be obtained via high-protein foods. However, not all people have the same amino acid requirements. It is possible that some muscles are heavily used in some intensive sports and therefore require a greater number of amino acids. A vegetarian or vegan diet can also mean your body has a lower supply of amino acids.
With the cerascreen® Amino Acid Test, you can assess the levels of 26 different amino acids in your body - and receive tips on how to optimise your intake.
- Enjoy convenient and easy sample-taking from home (saliva and blood sample)
- Save time: no doctor’s appointment, no waiting time
- Receive tips and recommendations about fitness and your amino acid levels, based on your genetics
- Get your results within three weeks after the sample’s arrival in the laboratory
