MyHealthyLife is powered by LifeDNA, a world class genomics company whose geneticists offer one of the most robust scientific platforms in the world.

Your DNA security is our top priority. You retain 100% ownership over your data, and we will NEVER sell it or share it without your permission. Your data is 100% encrypted, 100% private, and 100% secure.

Here are factors that differentiate our reports from the rest:

  1. We offer 130+ genetic traits that focus on nutrition, fitness, health, wellness, personality, cognition, skin, immunity, and supplements – all unlocked with your DNA.
  2. Our genetic research is based on over 600 peer-reviewed studies.
  3. Our DNA reports are easy to navigate and read.
  4. We deliver simple, actionable recommendations for each genetic trait to guide you along your own, unique path to wellness.
  5. We continuously update our reports and add new information based on the latest research.

 

ABOUT THE MYHEALTHYLIFE DNA TEST AND REPORTS

There are 2 ways:

  1. If you have already taken a DNA test from 23andMe, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Living DNA, or Family Tree DNA, you can easily upload your existing raw data in your account and have your wellness reports generated right away.
  2. If you have never taken a DNA test before, order a DNA kit and we will send it by mail. Then collect your saliva sample and send it back in the postage-paid envelope.

If you’re uploading your DNA from 23andMe, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Living DNA, or Family Tree DNA, your results will be generated instantly!

If you’re sending your MyHealthyLife DNA kit back with your saliva sample, it will take 6 to 8 weeks* to process your results and generate wellness reports.

*In rare cases due to shipping delays that are out of our control, it may take longer.

More than anyone else’s!

Thanks to our extensive research, we’re proud to say that we are able to provide more actionable genetic insights than any other DNA testing platform.

We also offer the most up-to-date reports based on the latest research. We make sure that your results and your personalized genetic insights are continuously updated to provide you with the most accurate genetic information.

You won’t just learn about your DNA traits: you’ll also be able to take steps toward improving your lifestyle, health, body, mind, and overall happiness with our wellness reports and recommendations.

Yes, you can definitely take advantage of this offer now and simply upload your DNA as soon as you’ve received your raw DNA data from 23andMe, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Living DNA, or Family Tree DNA.

Because gene expression is highly affected by environmental and lifestyle factors, results of any DNA test cannot be 100% accurate. Your genetics is just one part of who you are.

We do provide the most accurate genetic results based on over 600 scientific studies in our database.

Within each genetic trait report, we indicate a specific star rating to identify the reliability level of the scientific research that supports your results.

For the majority of traits that we analyze, there is strong statistical significance between the associated genetic markers and the results in your reports. We are able to provide highly accurate data in these cases.

There are some traits based on several studies where the results are deemed to be statistically significant in terms of frequency. This means that more research is needed for the existing results to be deemed conclusive.

We also have traits that are based on suggestive research, which means that only small population sizes and descriptive statistics were used to prove the studies’ hypotheses.

Our scientists are constantly updating our research database to ensure that you’re receiving the most accurate information from your DNA analysis.

Your DNA provides insight into the nutritional deficiencies and health risks you may have, the kind of exercise and time of day for exercising that work best for you, and so much more!

We combine that information with our expertise in nutrition, fitness and health to give you precise, data-driven tips and strategies for a better life.

Yes. Variations in the MTHFR gene are vital markers for mental health, cancer risk, potential pregnancy complications, neural tube defects, and other neurological disorders.

Our test will reveal variations you may have in the MTHFR gene and your associated disease risks.

Absolutely! You can purchase 2 or more reports by following the instructions below.

Step 1: Purchase your MyHealthyLife DNA Kit and Wellness Report(s).

Step 2: Log out of your MyHealthyLife account, click on the desired plan again, and proceed to purchase another one for your spouse, daughter, son, friend, etc.

Step 3: When purchasing another report, please be sure to use a different email address from the one you used for your first purchase. This will allow us to differentiate between the orders.

ABOUT MY DNA ANALYSIS

It is important to understand that our personal experience with certain genetic traits depends on multiple factors, and our genetic makeup is an important part of that equation.

Other factors include our environment, lifestyle, demographics, and other modifiers.

Here are a few reminders that can help you to better understand your reports:

  1. One may have the genetic markers that predispose them to a condition, but still not develop it because their environmental factors may offset such risks.

On the other hand, even if you have a low likelihood for a particular condition, it does not mean that you will never develop it.

For example, if your report shows that you have a low sensitivity to gluten, that does not necessarily mean that you will never be able to develop gluten sensitivity.

Gluten sensitivity can be triggered by several factors such as surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, viral infections, and severe emotional stress.

  1. There are multiple genes that influence your results.

Most genetic traits are polygenic in nature, meaning multiple genes are responsible for their expression in our bodies.

Impairment in just one gene cannot contribute alone to your actual experience. Some mechanisms may still try to offset or compensate for any genetic variations in our bodies.

  1. Your reports are based on the world’s latest genetic research studies.

The science behind the association of genetic markers with certain traits or conditions is backed by published and peer-reviewed genetic association studies. The Genome-Wide Association Study, for example, is a powerful tool for detecting genetic variations in DNA that can contribute to the likelihood of being allergic to peanuts, for example, being sensitive to lactose, or having low metabolism of saturated fats.

Knowing your genetic predisposition is important because this can help you manage other modifiable factors, such as lifestyle, to decrease your risks.
