People always ask me this one question: “Which SNP should I look at for this particular health issue?”
Let me tell you what I always tell them. Most of the time, there isn’t going to be one magical SNP that will be the solution to your problems. In fact, individual SNPs don’t have a huge impact on your health. It’s the combination of them that can make a difference.
I talk a little bit about this in this video (it’s only 2.5 minutes).
Our Polygenic Risk Scores
When I started my health journey, there weren’t any tools to really help me understand how to hack my biology. Most DNA reports only looked at 1 or 2 SNPs, which isn’t usually predictive of a health issue.
That’s why I wanted to make sure that SelfDecode was the most accurate tool in the market. The first step to optimizing your health is understanding what your priorities are, and to do that you need an accurate representation of your genetic predispositions. Today, we have reports at SelfDecode that look at 1.2M+ genetic variants each. That’s as accurate as it gets.
In fact, we are the only company in the world that is offering consumers ancestry-adjusted polygenic risk scores. That means we’re not only looking at millions of genetic variants to produce your scores, but we’re also taking your ancestry into consideration to make them even more accurate.
If you want to understand your genetic blueprint, then sign up for SelfDecode and start your own journey to optimal health.
