AFC DNA Gene Test Kit For Weight Management

.

Last week, I have gone through my first DNA test. I’m not testing if I’m the biological child of my parents but to uncover the DNA link to my weight. :-)

.

.

As planned, I’ve met up with 2 pretty AFC Japan representatives for a lunch and at the same time I was presented with a complimentary Gene Test Kit (S$28) plus laboratory testing (S$180) which will be conducted by GeneLife® in Japan.

AFC Gene Test Kit for Weight Management is 99.99% accurate and 100% safe. It uses a simple, painless non-invasive cheek swab to discover my Fat Metabolism Gene Combination, what makes me put on weight, where I store excess body fat and to determine the right diet for my unique genetic profile.

Have you ever wonder why you eat the same amount of food as your friends but they never seem to put on weight but you do? Or feeling stress out of losing those flabby fats? Your genes play an important role on these factors.

Many friends around me have been torturing themselves by exercising intensively or falling sick with slimming pills and crazy crash diets. In the end, they are not able to lose those weights at all. Even if they see superficial result now but once they stop the programs, they will put on more weight than what it was before.

Trying to achieve a long lasting result? Let AFC Japan provides you with the solution from your genes. By understanding your genes, you will be able to do the right thing for your body. Although the result may not be immediate but slowly and surely, you will definitely be seeing a long lasting and permanent result.

AFC Gene Test Kit for Weight Management tests for the presence of 3 fat metabolism genes : Ÿ3AR (Beta-3 Adrenergic Receptor), UCP1 (Uncoupling Protein-1) and Ÿ2AR (Beta-2 Adrenergic Receptor) genes. These 3 genes are specific to the Asian Chinese population.

3 Different Genes, 54 Possible Combinations

Do you know that you may be inherited one strand of DNA from each parent? If both your parents carry mutated fat metabolism genes, you may have a 75% chance of inheriting the mutated gene. As much as 70% of your body type is determined by your genes whilst the remaining 30% is determined by your own lifestyle choices and diet.

Knowing your genetic profile and how your body metabolizes fat will definitely help you make the right decisions about your diet and lifestyle. To understand these important clues will also help to keep those unwanted weight gain away.

As our genes will never change, one test is all I need. It gets to the root of my weight problems to discover how my body puts on weight especially on certain areas such as tummy, tights, upper arms and back of my body.

It is definitely worth to invest into this one-time program. I now get to understand my body better and I can enjoy a better life moving forward.

This AFC Gene Test Kit contains a Cheek Swab, ID Label, Personal Particulars Card, Return Booklet, User Instruction Manual and a Return Envelope.

.

.

Before the DNA Test, I was required not to take any caffeine at least 1 hour prior the test. No coffee, tea or soda to ensure accuracy of results. I will also need to rinse my mouth with plain water before the test.

.

Here's the Cheek Swab for my DNA test. :-)

.

The swab is carefully pull out from the plastic tube and I’m not allowed to touch the tip. I have to take this test before the food serve as to ensure my inner mouth is clean.

.

Hee hee......my 'V' sign again........

Using the cotton tip of the swab, I firmly brushed it against my inner right and left cheek with each side swabs 10 times firmly.

.

And here I’ve done on both sides. I’m not allowed to touch the tip.

.

I’m required to leave the swab to dry for about 10 minutes at a dry place on a room temperature.

.

While waiting for the swab to dry up, I filled up the Personal Particular Card, Consent and Questionnaire Form.

.

Here are the plastic wrapper for the swab, ID Labels and a Return Envelope.

If you are buying the kit to test at home, you are required to mail your cheek swab back to LifeStream Group office as soon as possible. If you can’t send your DNA sample back immediately after collection, please keep it in the fridge at 4ºc and send out within a week.

.

The swab is inserted into the plastic tube with ID label pasted on it before placing into the plastic wrapper provided.

.

I have pasted my ID labels on the plastic tube, consent/questionnaire form and my personal reference (for me to keep).

The plastic tube, consent/questionnaire form and my personal particular card are to be inserted into the returned envelope provided and send to LifeStream Group.

All the information will be submitted to GeneLife® in Japan for laboratory test. GeneLife® is Japan’s leading DNA research institute, with the largest and most reputable genetic testing. Accredited by Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan Ministry of Health and Japan Ministry of Education for Genetic Testing and Practice.

Approximately in 4 weeks time, I will get to receive 2 reports – my test results and a customized weight management plan.

Stay tuned for my follow-up post after I have received my reports. :-)

    HI Jane,

    I’m not wearing any foundation on this day. Just some loose powder from PorePutty Face Powder Moist. It is really good, highly recommended. I love the texture and the dewy finishing. You can get this at any of the Sasa stores at S$25.90.
