DNA-CHECK - DNA TEST
Results of the analysis available in English and German for now!
Everyone treats food differently. So there is no patent revenue to lose weight for everyone! This is largely due to the individual's genetic predisposition to the individual.
During evolution, man has had to constantly adapt to new conditions of life. However, this process was not the same for all people, so that different types of metabolic and metabolic genetic, called meta types, developed.
The scientifically developed DNA-Check uses DNA analysis to determine your personal meta-type. This allows you to adapt your diet and physical activity to your genetic predisposition. This allows you to naturally regulate your weight and lose weight faster.

With CoGAP® DNA Control, everyone can be identified to a specific meta-type (ie Metabolism / Metabolic Types) by analyzing certain metabolic genes and their characteristics. In total, there are four meta-types.
Alpha of type meta
The alpha meta-type can use the protein very effectively. As part of a diet should be dispensed too much fat and carbohydrates. For the diet to work very well, the alpha meta-type should be limited to three meals a day and not snacking.
Beta of type meta
In addition to protein, the beta meta-type can also metabolize fats very well. However, this type of carbohydrate should also be avoided and should not consume more than three meals a day to lose weight effectively.
Nutritional use of the gamma meta-type, which metabolizes carbohydrates best, works differently. Therefore, this type of diet should limit the consumption of protein and fat during a diet. Another difference from the other two types is that gamma meta-type can most effectively lose weight with several small meals a day.
Delta type meta
In the case of the delta meta type, the protein intake should be limited as much as possible because they can not be used as well. On the other hand, carbohydrates and fats can be treated effectively and are allowed during feeding. Again, it is better to have smaller meals than to be limited to three big ones.
The term DNA-Check stands for Metabolism-Check and identifies a nutrigenetic metabolic analysis. In the process, certain metabolic genes and their interactions are examined in order to deduce the individual genetic predisposition of the person concerned. This genetic analysis can then be used to determine the type of meta-type that can be used to predict which nutrients (carbohydrates, lipids, or proteins) can best use the person. Nutrients that can not be metabolized must also be restricted during dieting. The sport variant, which can support a particularly effective diet, can thus be found.
The different genetic metabolic profiles of individuals developed as a result of evolution. As people's living conditions and eating habits have constantly changed, a process of continuous adjustment has taken place.
At first, humans lived as hunters and gatherers. Since resources were scarce at the time, it was difficult to get food. At that time, our ancestors ate mostly meat (proteins and fats), but they barely absorbed carbohydrates. In addition, they had to be particularly quick and skilful, both to ensure a sufficient supply of food through hunting and to not fall prey to dangerous predators themselves.
When our ancestors began farming and rearing a few thousand years ago, dietary habits and physical demands changed. Speed and competence, previously relevant, have been replaced by endurance, essential for agricultural activities. In addition, carbohydrates were increasingly integrated into the nutrition plan because there was a lot of grain to produce. On the other hand, foods rich in protein and fat were rarely eaten (eg in the form of animal milk products).
A different situation prevails today, as food purchases are generally no longer associated with strenuous physical labor and many foods are available everywhere. As a result, many people in modern industrial societies suffer from a lack of exercise. In the present, the food supply is not so much a problem, but rather the excessive weight of the food, which is combated by different diets.
This temporal development means that each person has a unique combination of DNA that involves the different use of macronutrients. As a result, the calorie consumption of the energy intake of the three groups of nutrients (glucicides, lipids, proteins) varies. It's the same with the calorie consumption that is caused by the different types of sports because it is different in each person.
Overall, the success of a particular diet is therefore linked to individual genetic predisposition.
In DNA verification, the relevant metabolic genes are examined based on ongoing scientific studies. Thus, the scientific basis of metabolic analysis is furthermore secure.
The human genome comprises about 30,000 genes (including about 23,000 coding for proteins), which play completely different roles from metabolism to programmed cell death. By a certain method, called "alternative splicing", different types of proteins can be encoded or produced by a single gene.
As a result, more than 500,000 different types of proteins are found in the human body. But since a gene is not only responsible for regulating a single process or producing a single protein, but several processes are simultaneously regulated by a gene, the human body forms a highly complex system.
In this system, the genes and their products are interrelated so that a single change results in a large number of subsequent reactions. In addition, the interaction of genes and their products contributes to the great complexity of this system.
Therefore, the control of DNA studied from each other on the basis of current scientific studies of certain metabolic genes and their interaction to make statements on a genetically adapted diet and appropriate training, and to determine the meta-types respective (alpha, beta, gamma or delta).
The energy supply of the human body is mainly through the consumption of three different biological macromolecules (carbohydrates, proteins and fatty acids). The four types of meta-types studied in the DNA-Check relate to different caloric consumption during the metabolization of the three energy sources mentioned.
In addition, it can be determined by DNA control, which exercise (speed sports or endurance) is more advantageous in terms of calorie consumption due to the respective meta-type.
There are four different meta types (alpha, beta, gamma and delta), each with two different variants (E and S) in terms of caloric intake during physical activity.
All meta types each have two sport variants. The endurance variant E (such as "Endurance") is characterized by a particularly high calorie consumption during endurance sports, such as running, swimming or cycling, while the variation of the speed S (by example "speed") has a higher calorie consumption in speed sports like body pump, aerobics and strength training, including.
Selection of metabolic genes studied
CoGAP® DNA-Check analysis is a complex calculation of interactions in which only metabolic genes meeting certain criteria are considered.
These include metabolic genes involved in the weight control system, whose effect in the body can be positively influenced by a dietary or behavioral change and that are different in different people.
In addition to genetic analysis, a comparison is made with current scientific studies that must meet the following quality criteria:
Repeatability of study results (reproducibility)
Sufficient number of study participants (number of people tested)
Importance (level of significance)
Validated study methods (validity)
On the basis of these criteria, after careful evaluation of all studies concerning the genetic factors associated with obesity, the relevant metabolic genes were identified and selected for DNA verification.
Only metabolic genes are analyzed. The metabolic genes studied have different constellations, which are assigned to individual meta-types. They do not allow conclusions on kinship. In addition, no statement is made on the risks of illness. The sample is destroyed after the metabolic analysis! When preparing the individual feeding plan, attention should be paid to the feeding target, taking into account the specific characteristics of each person (gender, age, weight, health status, etc.).
