WHAT MAKES WELLNESSFX DIFFERENT

The insights you want, the team you need

WellnessFX has an elite scientific team that enables us to offer consumers the best information—and we’ve partnered with leading academic institutions to further develop our depth of knowledge. This knowledge, along with our commitment to consumer prevention and wellness, makes WellnessFX the trusted choice for online personalized wellness.

The science

Blood lipids, e.g. cholesterol and triglycerides, are a natural and important part of our body, but can cause problems if present in excess. The amount of these lipids in your blood is a combination of what your body makes and what you absorb from your diet. DNA influences both of these, but your dietary choices and lifestyle factors, like stress, drive most of the final outcome. There are some rare conditions that result in high cholesterol and/or triglycerides, regardless of diet, but this product does not test for those.

Some diet decisions, like eating lots of meats and cheeses, may increase your blood lipids, and this might impact your heart health. A blood test is the best way to measure your blood lipids, and your doctor or a cardiologist can help you understand any health impacts from those results. Otherwise, DNA insights from this product can be used to help you make healthy diet decisions for your heart.

Impact

DNA is just the start. Diet and lifestyle choices have a larger impact on your heart health, or in some cases, rare conditions not included in this product.

Limitations

  • This product will not provide any medical information or a diagnosis.
  • Genetic results are based on population-wide studies. What is true at a population level average may not be true at an individual level.
  • Our understanding of how genetics influences blood pressure and lipid levels will improve with more research.
  • Individuals should consult a physician or healthcare professional before making dietary changes or beginning supplementation.
