According to the research for the Human Obesity Gene Map (.pdf) there are approximately 250 genes linked with obesity in the human genome. The numerous publications report a wide variety of physiological attributes pertaining to obesity such as BMI, body fat mass, percentage of body fat, abdominal fat, fat-free mass, skin folds, resting metabolic rates, plasma leptin levels, and other components of fat distribution and energy balance.
SlimGENEration utilizes a team of dedicated researchers and scientists who stay current in data and trends in obesity. The compilation of data from this team on each polymorphism is used to identify distinctive information in regards to gender, cultural differences and the influence of one polymorphism on another (or others).
After unraveling of the human genome, scientists were able to understand the specific functions of genes in the human body. Genes were categorized into “maps” based on their role and reported relevance to the subject. The genes in the SlimGENEration DNA test are relevant to weight gain, weight loss and overall healthy lifestyle. By knowing the information collected from these genetic variations, you can overcome a genetic weakness, allowing you an opportunity to reach goals, lose weight and be your most fit.
Full RegionSequence/Whole Gene Sequencing is the most comprehensive avenue to get the clear and accurate reading of an individual’s genetic information. It is an investigative and powerful tool that captures all the variations present on the individual’s genetic sample.
However, this reveals billions of bits of information that drive diverse worldwide research on understanding how we are made. We analyze both strands of DNA in Full Region-Sequencing to obtain the targeted SNPs relative to your weight metabolism. Our scientists begin the sample analysis by using the highest quality primers normally reserved for use in whole genome analysis. This yields a more accurate selection of SNP targets for us. Then, we use proprietary computer algorithms to reassemble your gene codes in both directions away from the SNP; up to 120 or more places on either side of the polymorphism.
This assures a 100% accurate report of your unique SNPs. Other labs have a typical error rate of 1-2%, which can lead to great deviations in your final recommendations. We find this unacceptable and have made it a priority to be the leader in genetic accuracy in an industry full of ineffective products.
Please see the images below to visualize how a-SNP is one piece of information that is different from what is expected to be there in respect to the two strands of DNA.
SlimGENEration is providing the most accurate results available for genetic testing. We are able to offer accuracy by:
SlimGENEration is designed around an individual’s DNA. DNA is made of two long chemical chains consisting of repeated units called nucleotide bases. The double helix shape creates pairs of nucleotides that carry the complete genetic instructions for development and function of life. The bases are translated in the body through the transcription and translation of a genetic language into Amino Acids.
The different possible variations of nucleic acids are called polymorphisms. Each of which creates unique instructions for an individual. We are all unique beings with unique genetic instructions. Some evidence has even reported maternal twins have varying degrees of DNA sequences. We know that what works for one person is not necessarily going to work for another, certainly not when it comes to a diet or exercise program. This is cutting edge information about individuals. That we are able to apply now, unlike ever before due to research in the fields of genetics, exercise physiology and nutritional science.
SlimGENEration provides the most accurate and reliable information based upon an individual’s genotype that will ensure each client sees results. The answers to questions people ask about health and nutrition are found in their DNA; different from others, and SlimGENEration is here to find answers and to
SlimGENEration is for anyone. Common reasons why people choose SlimGENEration :
We recommend exercise, however it is not required. Exercise is good for your health in general, however some of our clients are unable to exercise and they still lose 2-7 lbs of fat a week. With the Full Region-Sequence DNA test, we will be able to tell you what the best kind of exercise is for YOU specifically and how long you need the exercise and how many days a week you need as well. We take all the guesswork out of what is best for you when you decide to exercise.
Our goal at Slimgeneration is to fit your menu plan/ daily intake to your lifestyle and around the foods you like. Using our weight loss solution will enable you to know how many grams of proteins, carbohydrates and fats you need on a daily basis. From there, we coach and guide you into fitting in some of your favorite foods into your daily intake. After all, you need protein, carbohydrates and fats, so we believe you might as well eat what you like. We like to call our weight loss solution- the NO deprivation approach to losing weight.
We offer a live online remote experience plan. In some instances, some clients have driven or flown in for the initial consultation and then we serve you remotely. In other instances, we arrange a time to meet using video conference technology and mail out as needed the testing kits directly to you. We have had client lose 2 to 7 pounds of body fat remotely.
