Take Back Control
of Your Health with Genetic Testing

How We View Genetics and Functional Health

Genetics make up the baseline “code” by which your body functions. The impact of every single choice you make throughout your life is influenced by your personal genetic makeup.

 

We test over 134 genes that can affect your metabolism, inflammation, detoxification, fitness, weight, hormones, cognition, and response to food and supplements. By understanding how your unique genetics impact these key processes, you can make smarter, more personalized decisions about your health. There may even be insights you never imagined (like whether that second cup of coffee is a good idea for you based on your genotype)!

 

 

Our genetic test is designed to provide clear, actionable insights and recommendations about the areas of health that are most important to you:

Nutrient Needs

What are your body’s unique needs and how do you respond to certain foods? How well do you tolerate fat and carbs? What’s your vitamin D need? Do you require extra antioxidants and Omega-3 fats compared to others based on your unique gntoype? Should you limit gluten, salt or caffeine?


Fitness Strengths

What type of exercise will your body respond best to? How can you train smarter in alignment with your genes, for better performance, faster recovery and fewer injuries? How can you enhance your athletic performance to get faster results and better outcomes?


Proactive Prevention


Is your body more prone to high blood pressure, high blood sugar, or high cholesterol? How can you support your cardiovascular system and your immune system for more resilience as you age? We also look at processes like your inflammation, detoxification, methylation and more, to better understand what your body needs to cope better with the stressors of modern life.


Ideal Weight


Why does your body resist weight loss and how can you manage your weight in a healthy and sustainable way that is personalized to your unique genotype?


Stress Strategies

How does your life stress affect your brain health, your hormones, your sleep quality and your overall wellness? More importantly, what can you do about it based on your genetic predispositions?

How is 3x4 Genetic Testing Different from Other DNA Tests?

Rooted in Science


The 3X4 Genetics Test focuses on the genes that have undergone vigorous 

examination for both scientific validity (how good is the science?) 

and clinical utility (how useful will it be in real life?).  As such, only the genes that have the greatest potential to influence health are examined because a genetic 

test is only as good as the actionable 

insights that can be extracted from it.

Yael Joffe, PhD who leads the science team at 3X4 is acknowledged globally as an expert in the field of Nutrigenomics and our Scientific Advisory Board of top physicians, scientists, and experts in Functional Medicine are closely involved in the advancement of our scientific thinking. 


Practitioner Guided

Genetics is complex, you shouldn’t be left alone to understand your genes. Our highly trained health practitioners will work with you to translate your results and analyze how your genes work together in your body to impact your overall health. 


Actionable 

Insights in Order of Importance

The 3X4 Blueprint Report uses infographics, explanations and actionable recommendations that are prioritized into the top three suggestions for nutrition; supplements; and lifestyle changes for each of your most genetically impactful pathways (hence the name 3X4!) making it easier to know where to start and how to prioritize meaningful lifestyle changes. 

How To Order the 3x4 Genetics Test

This test is not available outside of South Africa and the US.

  • Order the lab test through your preferred health coach.
    Once the lab test arrives, complete and please send back to the 3x4 Genetics group(instructions are in the lab testing kit).
  • Once your health coach receives the results from the 3x4 Genetics team, they will contact you with the results of your lab test
  • You can choose to schedule a one hour consultation with your health coach to discuss the findings.
  • It typically takes 3-4 weeks to receive the results. Your practitioner will contact you when your 3X4 Report is available.

What Do You Do with the DNA Sample Once It Is Processed?

Our partner lab securely retains your sample until we are sure we have complete and accurate results to produce a report.

The sample is destroyed 90 days after we have received your results.


How is the DNA Sample Collected?  Does it Hurt?

Our test kit is a simple and pain-free cheek swab that you can complete at home. A thorough rub with a cotton swab on the inside of each cheek for 60 seconds is all it takes. No spitting or blood draw is required.
