HOW CAN IT HELP YOU?

CarbChoice is your DNA profile to help you choose the right carbohydrate.

How Well Do You Process Carbohydrates?

What is CarbChoice?

CarbChoice created by Fitgenes, is a quick home DNA kit that can assist in determining your natural genetic ability to process starchy carbohydrates. This helps fast-track health goals whether for better health, weight loss, improved fitness levels (or all of these).

Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for our body, especially the brain. There are two kinds of carbohydrates – complex and simple. 

Carbohydrates in foods are converted into glucose during digestion supplying this required energy. Knowing how well your body processes carbohydrates is the key in helping eliminate the trial and error process for your best health.

What is Amylase?

Scientific studies indicate some individuals have a better tolerance to process starchy carbohydrates than others. This is due to a variation in the human salivary alpha-amylase gene (AMY1). A lower level of salivary amylase activity can demonstrate reduced breakdown of starchy carbohydrates, leading to weight gain, feelings of fatigue, mood changes and difficulty concentrating. Higher levels show the reverse – individuals feel well, and the starchy carbohydrates have less impact on weight management and insulin levels.

COMPLEX CARBS

Complex carbohydrates

take longer to break down

during digestion, are high

in fibre, and produce

a slower release of energy.

COMPLEX CARBS - Complex carbohydratestake longer to break downduring digestion, are highin fibre, and producea slower release of energy.
SIMPLE CARBS

Simple carbohydrates

are digested quickly

to increase energy fast,

are low in fibre and nutrients

and often high in sugar.

THE CARBCHOICE TEST OVERVIEW

• World-leading DNA science to help eliminate the trial and error process of determining the best nutrition and exercise and regime for you.

• Helps fast-track your goals – whether for better health, weight loss, or improved fitness (or all of these), as the results are specific to your genetic makeup.

• Shows the level of salivary amylase activity (an enzyme that breaks down and processes starchy carbohydrates) to predict the body’s ability to produce it.

What Will The CarbChoice DNA Results Tell You?

  • A CarbChoice score unique to you (1–9+). Your analysed DNA determines a ‘Copy Number Variation’ for your amylase gene, which calculates how many copies of the amylase gene you have.
  • Indicates your potential disposition for processing starchy carbohydrates
  • Will give guidance of foods and ingredients to include or avoid to support optimal starchy carbohydrate processing
  • What foods to increase your amylase levels for better processing.
  • How you can get fit faster based on better carbohydrate management, as you learn about your GENES!

Why DNA?

We each have specific DNA that gives a blueprint for protein (amino acids) to be created. These amino acids become the building blocks for our body to function. Watch this quick simple animated visual on 'What is DNA and How Does it Work?'
