The CyGene Athletic Performance test analyzes six gene types to find out if you are predisposed to perform better at endurance (aerobic) or strength (anaerobic) athletics. The specific genes measured are BR2, ACE, APOE, Vitamin D Receptor, VDR Bsml, VDR Fokl and eNOS. ACE determines how efficiently oxygen rich blood is delivered to the muscles and BR2 helps relax blood vessels, lowers blood pressure and allows for greater blood flow. The more efficient your blood vessels are at delivering oxygen to the muscles, the more predisposed you are for endurance related sports since these activities predominantly require aerobic energy.
The test aims to give you a useful insight into the genetic components of your athletic ability and will provide you with recommendations on how to make your genetics work for you when choosing a fitness program, sport or training regime.
