The process begins with the testing of your DNA gene variants, or SNPs, (pronounced “snips”) -- Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms. These gene variants naturally occur in genes, causing changes in their functions. Some SNPs determine characteristics such as hair and eye and skin color. Other SNPs, the ones ÜFORIA tests for, are “actionable genes” – those most researched and supported by science with over 100 clinical studies. Human beings have roughly 20,500 genes, all coiled up in DNA, housed in each and every one of the trillions of cells that make you who you are. That's 20,500 places where the machinery of human life can be altered. Many of these alterations would make life impossible.
"Actionable" genes are genes that respond to some action you can take to compensate for the changes in the biochemical pathway affected by the SNP. For instance, if a gene SNP indicates your body doesn’t use a particular nutritional ingredient efficiently, Üforia has researched what can be done to increase your absorption of that ingredient, by either taking another form of that ingredient, or substituting another ingredient that is more usable for your DNA.
“Genes load the gun, environment pulls the trigger.”
Once you swab and send your samples to a third-party lab via barcode (CLIA and HIPAA compliant), you receive a 47-page report all about YOU! Your confidential report is then sent to Uforia where they create your custom Ütrition, based on your SNPs. If you have a SNP from one parent on a gene (heterozygous), your formula will have an increased amount of certain supplements which support that SNP. If you have SNPs from both parents on the same gene (homozygous), you receive an even larger dose of these supportive ingredients. The DNA Healthy Aging Report tests for 18 SNPs and is most important for overall health, but ÜFORIA also offers reports for Weight Management (20 SNP's) which offers custom nutritional support, along with two other reports-- Skin (26 SNP's), and Sports & Fitness (24 SNP's). Custom formulations are upcoming on the latter two reports.
ÜFORIA tests look for ways to offer preventative and proactive solutions to health issues of your DNA for variants that could affect your organs, glands, bones, heart, reproductive & nervous system, etc to detect any gene variants you might have. This will give a broader perspective. Other DNA tests look at medical diagnoses, such as specific cancers, birth defects, and individual diseases/illnesses, while we focus on how the bodily functions and actionable genes. This allows us to help you be more proactive with your overall health before a diagnosis may occur, and even after, to help your body recover and heal on a more efficient level. For many, these functions signal the potential for future medical diagnoses that we may be able to prevent with the right intervention.
When you order your custom Ütrition, there is significant savings over purchasing multiple supplements on your own,. ÜFORIA sources over 100 organic, wild crafted, non-GMO Ayurvedic, Chinese and Amazonian herbs, vitamins, mineral, superfoods and other nutraceuticals to assemble YOUR custom Ütrition, using state-of-the-art production equipment. All of these nutrients, in the right concentrations, quantities, and combinations, could be extremely expensive and overwhelming for an individual to source themselves. With all the possible variations between individuals, there are over 400 million possible formulations!
One of the key ingredients used in all formulas is AC-11, an extract of Cat's Claw, Uncaria Tomentosa, which studies have demonstrated help to repair DNA strands and sustain the cell's telomere length, supporting anti-aging. These telomeres naturally get shorter as we age, and their importance has been well established.
A telomere is the end of a chromosome., similar to the plastic tip on the end of a shoelace, holding it together. Telomeres are made of repetitive sequences of non-coding DNA that protect the chromosome from damage. Each time a cell divides, the telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become so short that the cell can no longer divide, and like a clock, the cell is counting to know how old it is. That will limit how many times the cell can divide without losing some of the important DNA on the chromosome. It would also appear that there is a link between telomere length and stem cells.
- AC-11 effectively removes lesions from damaged DNA caused by oxidative and non-oxidative stress
- AC-11 promotes DNA repair functions within the cell
- AC-11 also stimulates collagen III production, the form of collagen associated with soft, supple skin
- As we age, we lose collagen rapidly. By age 30, our collagen production has already decreased by almost 50%.
- Laboratory studies show significant, measurable increased in collagen III production in adult skin cells treated with AC-11
- AC-11 also normalized the expression of NF-KB in the cells, thereby regulating cellular response to inflammation (an over-expression of NF-KB heightens inflammation.
- AC-11 has a positive effect on Lymphocytes, increasing their life span and enhancing the body’s immune system.

I have included copies from a complete sample report so that you can review it. On page 13 you will see the results and on page 21 starts the in-depth explanation of what each DNA means, why it’s important, what’s the purpose, dietary recommendations and nutritional supplements that is specific for that DNA.
