As the holiday season approaches, the thrill of exchanging gifts with our loved ones is in the air. Finding a truly unique and original gift becomes a yearly challenge, but fear not—ADNTRO is here to make it effortless for you to dazzle and delight with something truly extraordinary: a DNA test!
It might sound unusual at first, but there are many reasons why gifting a DNA test for Christmas can be an unforgettable experience, and we're here to tell you all about them 😁👇
Gift a journey to the origins
If you've ever heard about DNA tests, it's likely been associated with discovering our origins and ancestry. Any of the ADNTRO Kits allows you to find out what we're made of, our connections with populations around the world, and discover which traits we share, among other interesting details. They don't tell us where we're going, but they do tell us where we come from 🌍
Do your loved ones have European, African, Asian, or a unique combination of roots? A DNA test can unveil fascinating details about their genetic heritage.
Gift a healthier lifestyle
Did you know that our genetics can provide valuable information about the foods that suit us best or worst, the sports most recommended for us, and even our specific needs for vitamins and minerals?
Our genes are responsible for controlling how we digest, absorb and use nutrients, that's why with our tests, we are able to discover intolerances genetically based (lactose, gluten and fructose intolerance), as well as allergies genetic basis.
The truth is, ADNTRO's nutrition section could fill many blogs, but let me summarize some of the most interesting aspects that we can uncover with just a saliva sample:
- Speed of metabolism compared to the population average
- Predisposition to obesity
- Recommended foods
- Recommended diet in case of wanting to lose weight
- Tendency to have appropriate levels of cholesterol and triglycerides
If, while reading this section, you thought of that person who always has issues with their diet or is constantly seeking a change, with our Nutrigenetic Report, they will no longer have excuses for not nourishing their body as it deserves.
A healthy life is one of the most important things we can have, and we wish it not only for ourselves but also for our loved ones. We understand that these topics can be sensitive, but in the case of many diseases, prevention can be the key to a successful outcome.
With the ADNTRO Premium Kit, we provide access to genetic information related to health, analyzing risk variants to understand each individual's predisposition to different diseases compared to the reference population.
This report is particularly useful for understanding if we have a high predisposition to certain diseases, allowing us to take proactive measures by consulting a doctor for early detection. It can also help us determine if there's a predisposition to inherit a disease that is present in our family history.
Now, if you're thinking of gifting an ADNTRO DNA test for Christmas to someone who prefers not to know about diseases, don't worry, because they can choose not to have access to this information if they wish.
Gift exploring personality traits
Have you ever been told something along the lines of "that's just the way I am and I can't change"? Well... maybe they weren't entirely wrong. The ADNTRO personality report allows to know genetic information related to the personality of each of us 🧬.
While environment and personal work influence the way we are, genetics also plays a fundamental role in our personality. But how is it possible to have this information? Well, thanks to studies with identical twins adopted by different families (same genetics, different environment), which demonstrate the importance of genetics in a person's behavior.
In this section, we analyze intriguing aspects such as our risk predisposition, susceptibility to certain addictions (tobacco, cannabis, alcohol, coffee...), and hormone levels such as dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins.
To define genetic personality, we rely on two models: the NEO-FFI model of the Big Five factors (agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, emotional stability, and openness to experience); and the MBTI model, which provides information about whether we are more or less leaders, charismatic, direct, and a myriad of other qualities.
We wanted to end with the most entertaining part of ADNTRO because we love being able to provide knowledge and prevention, but without forgetting the entertaining side of our DNA. Our innovative studies allow you to discover aspects that you would never think could define our DNA.
How does our body react to a mosquito bite? What is our response to pain? Are we more of a night or day person? Are we genetically predisposed to snoring?
That special person you care about and will receive our test will also have their own Genetic Bonsai, something entirely unique created from their DNA; enjoy 'The Game of Life by Conway', the world's first DNA-based game; and even communicate with their own DNA through GeneAI if they decide to join the ADNTRO Community.
