MyDNAPedia DNA tests

Carefully selected genetic information enabling choices in every-day life

Explore your fitness, nutrition and
well-being with MyDNAPedia DNA test.

Do you have goals for your exercise or just training to keep up your good health?


Want to find out genetic details behind your nutrition?


Are you wondering what your genes reveal from your well-being?


No matter which one you are thinking of, MyDNAPedia tests fit to your needs. We are all one of a kind, so your training program, nutrition or well-being questions should be addressed with genes to meet your unique genetic features.

Based on MyDNAPedia genetic analysis,
you would receive the following:

Scientific information on your inheritable strenghts and development areas (Fitness).


Scientific information on how genes make your body deal with things you eat and drink (Nutrition).


Scientific information on your risks and well-being (Wellbeing).


Scientific information on genes related to the appearance of the skin and the risk of skin diseases (Skin Health)

MyDNAPedia Add On Tests

(Weight Management)

Your genetic inheritance affects not only your body’s metabolism but also your preferences and eating habits. In addition to the normal NUTRITION section, the extension includes following points:


Sweet Tooth
Sugar consumption
Greater appetite
Circadian rhythm and eating behavior
Emotional eating
Ability to lose abdominal fat
Response to low fat diet
Exercise responsiveness 
HDL-level response to exercise

Effect and Risks of

Your genetic inheritance partly affects on your alcohol tolerance, the feeling of pleasure with alcohol, and the health and social risks of alcohol use. From these, one can infer the susceptibility to alcohol dependence and alcoholism.


Alcohol tolerance (2 genetic markers)
Feeling of pleasure (6 genetic markers)
Risk of liver cirrhosis
Risk of impulsive behavior while intoxicated 


How is your DNA tested?


You collect the sample from your cheek inside your mouth with a simple, fast and painless method using buccal swab delivered with the MyDNAPedia DNA testing kit. The swab will collect cells that include your DNA.


We extract your DNA from the cells stored in the swab.


We will multiply your DNA a million-fold from the areas we examine using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR).


Thanks to multiplier-PCR we can see small mutations in your DNA, that are presented to you as a DNA testing report.
