The most frequently asked customer questions
How does DNA analysis work?
As different as our tastes and preferences are, so are our physical characteristics and needs. Thanks to the groundbreaking discoveries of modern genetics, it is possible to find out precisely these genetic differences from the comfort of your own home with a simple saliva sample.
Depending on the analysis you choose, you will learn what influence your genes have on your body.
Is DNA analysis also suitable for me?
Basically, our DNA analyses are suitable for everyone who is interested in their genetic predispositions. From health optimizers to competitive athletes to beauty queens. With us, everyone will find what they are looking for.
What is analyzed?
DNA has an influence on many areas in life. Gene segments related to body processes are studied. Depending on your preference, you can choose between the following analyses:
- MY VITALITY (+ optional MY FOODBOOK)
- MY INFINITY (+ optional MY FOODBOOK)
- ALLINONE (incl. MY FOODBOOK)
- MY SKINCARE

How do I determine my personal micronutrient requirements and why is a blood count not sufficient for this?
Micronutrients play an essential role when it comes to our health and well-being. To ensure adequate supply, optimal nutrient uptake is critical.
But how can individual needs be correctly determined?
The most common way is to have blood work done by a doctor. BUT: A blood draw measures the levels of each micronutrient, which may be within the recommended normal range according to blood work. However, due to a genetic defect, this “recommended normal range” may differ significantly from your individual needs. If your body has problems with the conversion or absorption of certain micronutrients, this nutrient is transported more poorly into the cells and a deficiency occurs – even though the level is inconspicuous according to the blood count. Your personal requirement would therefore be higher than the recommended normal value in this case.
DNA has an influence on metabolism. Means metabolism is related to genetic predisposition.
How do I apply my DNA analysis report correctly?
Up to 470 pages you get the connections between genetics and body explained. For this purpose, recommendations based on logical conclusions are written down for each point. In combination with MY FOODBOOK, which suggests personalized cooking recipes, you have the complete package.
To enjoy the full benefit of our services, you can easily book our team for online nutritional counseling.
Why is a DNA-based diet more effective than a standard diet or an extreme measure like stomach reduction?
Don’t bury your head in the sand right away if a diet doesn’t work.
Since there is no one diet that works for everyone, it is now necessary to include your own genes. DNA has an influence on metabolism. This means that it works better or worse depending on the predisposition. For example, one person can process lactose better or absorb vitamins better than others.
You don’t want to work against your natural conditions, but rather use your DNA to take care of your own health without having to make any sacrifices!
The DNA analysis
by mybody is your approach to adapt your lifestyle to your genes without extreme changes.

Questions about the mybody DNA analyses
Why a DNA analysis?
With DNA analysis, certain sections of your DNA are analyzed. For example, if you have problems losing weight, want to improve your performance or simply optimize your well-being, it can happen that you do not immediately find the right solution.
Gene variations can be determined on the basis of DNA. Gene variations are traits that are related to the body process.
The unique DNA analysis report is accessible from anywhere, whether as a ring binder or on your electronic device.
What exactly does the DNA analysis report offer me?
The DNA analysis report is generated using your DNA. DNA is related to many areas of the body. Depending on how many gene segments are examined, you get results about your gene variations (traits).
Why can my diet and nutrition type help me?
DNA has an influence on metabolic functions. Depending on predisposition, the absorption and digestion of food varies. We determine the mybody metabolic types based on your DNA. Your predisposed reactions to saturated fats or monounsaturated / polyunsaturated fats as well as carbohydrates and proteins round out your diet type.
How does knowing my vitamin and mineral needs help me?
Micronutrients, which include vitamins and minerals, have a key role in our health. They are vital for the functioning of our organism, because they improve our well-being and can thus strengthen the immune system and prevent many diseases.
A lack of vitamins sometimes makes you feel a little sleepy or you don’t feel quite right. With the right nutritional intake of vitamins and minerals is done a favor to health.
Your daily requirements are influenced by numerous factors, including your genetic makeup, which determines which vitamins and minerals you may be deficient in and should then increase your intake.
What effects do my eating habits have on my body?
Undoubtedly, the environment and your genetic makeup have a great influence on your eating habits, with your health being directly linked to your eating habits. Thus, it is hereditary that the consumption of sweets, a higher insatiability and the perception of the sweet or bitter taste is associated with your state of health.
Depending on your genetic makeup, you may reach for sweets more often or less often, or you may see yourself more or less as a glutton.
We determine for sustainable success, in addition to the mybody substance types, the genetic tendencies.

If you know the strengths and weaknesses of your own body better, you can use this knowledge to effectively increase your performance.
What is analyzed in the different DNA analyses?
The respective DNA analyses differ fundamentally in the number of gene segments that are examined. The higher the number of gene segments examined, the more content is included in the DNA analysis report..
