Personalized tips on how to balance your levels through nutritious foods, supplementation, and lifestyle changes based on your genetics
A breakdown of how your genetic variations might be affecting essential mineral levels in your body

An analysis of your genetic profile for each essential mineral
Iron has a large influence on your energy levels and impacts your brain, immune, and thyroid health. Hepcidin is the hormone that controls iron balance in the body, whereas transferrin and ferritin help transport and store iron.
Inflammation can raise hepcidin levels and trigger anemia that cannot be remedied by increasing iron intake.
Genetic variants that impact iron levels
Variants that influence vitamin D levels and activity can affect how well you absorb calcium. In turn, they may affect your risk of osteoporosis and reduce the effectiveness of osteoporosis treatments in menopausal women.
If you have certain genotypes for these SNPs, it is best to optimize your vitamin D levels and ensure the vitamin D receptors in your body function optimally. Some strategies for increasing receptor activity include exercise (weight training) and keeping a healthy circadian rhythm.
