How It Works

MuscleGenetica's genetic profiling combines a comprehensive analysis of your DNA and body make-up together with personalised recommendations to help you build muscle and strength and loose body fat. It looks at a spectrum of health, fitness and nutritional changes that optimise your genetic gifts.

  • Order

    Buy the DNA Analysis or the online coaching Professional Plan on our shop page and once your order is confirmed, we will post your DNA test kit to you. You can expect to receive it within 2-5 working days, depending on your location.

  • SWAB

    Once you receive your DNA test kit, you can provide your saliva sample and return it to us by following the instructions enclosed. Our lab will extract a sample of your DNA from cheek cells that are found in your saliva. These cells are kept safe in the special buffer enclosed with your kit, so your sample will reach us in excellent condition, no matter how long it spends in transit.

  • Analyse

    When we receive your sample it will be sent to our certified laboratory for processing, which typically takes four weeks from date of receipt. At the lab, DNA from your saliva sample is analysed for 50 genes and 181 variants linked to physical performance and nutrition.

  • Results

    When your DNA analysis is completed, we will send you an email to let you know your results are ready.
