You can obtain the igevia Metabolism Test in our online shop or from one of our partners. Your online order will be delivered to your home free of shipping costs.
The Metabolic Test contains the test kit and detailed instructions for a simple oral swab – in the comfort of your own home. You send your sample free of charge to our partner laboratory with the enclosed return box.
Our partner laboratory uses the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to analyse which of the six defined metabolic types you belong to. This procedure is the most important method for clarifying genetic questions.
The laboratory results are available in your igevia portal approx. two weeks after sending in the sample. The Results-Report provides information about your utilisation of carbohydrates, proteins and fatty acids, as well as your tendency to be overweight, Yo-Yo effect and hunger. On this basis, you will receive individual nutrition and sports recommendations.
Use the results report for a more detailed discussion with your nutritionist or doctor.1
