Thanks Science! 3 health benefits of a DNA diet

Having trouble reaching health or weight goals? AGS nutritionist Sharon Brack says the answer could be in your DNA. Lindsey Granger is talking with her about genetic testing that can dial in to exactly what you need for optimal health and finding out about three health benefits.

1.  Fitness

The test pinpoints what fitness routine works best with your DNA. The breakdown, based on your genetics, will help maximize all the time and effort that you put into your workout so you don't waste time doing ineffective work outs.

2.  Meal Plans

This is called a genetic dietary profile – what is the ratio of carbs, to fat, to protein that is ideal for you based on your DNA. Most tests come with a sample grocery list to give you what a day could look like. The test also shows which foods your body easily metabolizes.

3.  Vitamins and Nutrients

A DNA test can reveal what vitamins your body is lacking and test genetically what vitamins you are able to absorbing as well as which ones you are not. This way you'll know which supplements will help your body function best.

The test cost around $500 and it can be paid for with most health savings accounts.
