DNA testing is the best way to find out exactly how your body responds and metabolises certain nutrients.
More effective than blood testing in identifying the root cause of any existing problems.
Your DNA never changes so you will only ever need one DNA test.
- Choose which DNA test you want
- Purchase the test here or in our clinic
- Take the test (if you take the test at home simply pop the sample in the post for analysis. If you take the test in our clinic then we will do the rest – it takes just one minute using our cheek swab sample kit)
- Your results are analysed and a bespoke drip recommendation will be created based on your own unique DNA
- We will provide you with a detailed report explaining your results
- You can then book in to have your personalised Drip
Frequently Asked Questions
The test uses cheek cells as the sample type. The benefits being that they are convenient and painless to collect, and are easily transportable and stable. The quality of DNA collected is as good as, and the results as accurate as, from blood or saliva.
The only restriction is to abstain from eating or drinking for at least 1 hour before taking the test. The test results are not affected by any environmental aspect such as food, drink, medication, supplements or illness.
It takes up to 4 weeks for the results to be processed and back to you.

To book the consultation with our doctor, you will need to give our clinic a call or email and they will be able to advise you on suitable dates and times.
Client data is securely stored on the company’s system and is protected using
the highest industry standards. Each test is processed in a UK lab and all samples are destroyed after 3 months. A client report is only shared with the authorised practitioner. It is never shared or sold.
It tests for common variances, which occur in at least 1% of the global population. The genotyping methodology that we use is very accurate (at least 99.9%). Results that fail quality control are not reported (shown on the report as a ‘no result’).
Research to support the genotype interpretations is fully referenced in the report and is available to view online. Tests are created and reviewed, regularly, by staff qualified in genetics, nutrigenomics, nutritional science, and research techniques.
Lifecode Gx tests common variants (SNPs) that have the potential to alter gene expression and impact health. The report will include nutrition and lifestyle advice on how to compensate for potential SNP impacts and manage the associated risk.
To get the most benefit from the results, with both Silver & Gold DNA Tests we include a 30 minute consultation with a GMC registered doctor. They will be able to talk you through the results and answer any questions you may have.
