Frequently Asked Questions

How much detail is included in your DNA reports?

More than anyone else!

Thanks to our extensive research, we’re able to provide more info and useful tips than any other DNA testing website.

You won’t just learn about your DNA traits: you’ll also be able to improve your lifestyle, health, body, mind, and overall happiness with our genetic insights.

Is my privacy protected?

When you upload your DNA to LifeDNA, you keep 100% ownership over your data.

We will never share it without your permission.

Our system relies on a bullet-proof method. This means that the only way to access your DNA is with your direct approval or request, double-checked by multiple humans on our security team.

Your data is encrypted, protected, and safe, guaranteed.

How much research have you done?

We have over 600 peer-reviewed studies showing the connection between genetic markers and the ingredients, nutritional recommendations, diet plans, fitness programs, and reports that we generate. You can check out our research here.

How accurate are my DNA reports?

With over 600 peer-reviewed scientific studies, our database of genetic research provides one of the most accurate and complete DNA profiles available anywhere online.

Your DNA only increases the chances of incurring particular traits. Your environment and behaviors will also have an effect. So while some genetic relationships are very obvious, most genetic traits will be influenced by other factors as well. Taking your lifestyle, habits, environment, and DNA into consideration will help you get a better understanding of yourself.

How long does it take to get my results?

If you’re sending a LifeDNA DNA Test Kit, it takes about 2 weeks to process your results. If you’re uploading your DNA from 23andMe, Ancestry or MyHeritage, your results will be generated instantly.

What makes LifeDNA different from other genetic testing companies?

We’re not just a DNA-testing company: we’re a group of health and wellness enthusiasts who love using DNA to discover smarter strategies for a better life.

We are serious about good science. While most companies use any research they can find, we check every single study in our database for accuracy and credibility.

You can trust our reports — and our security. We never share your DNA with anyone unless you ask us to (for example, if you want your doctor to personalize your healthcare based on your DNA).

Try our DNA reports today, and see why serious research is worth the extra effort.

How do I test my DNA?

If you don’t have a DNA test from 23andMe, Ancestry, or MyHeritage… don’t worry!

We’ll send you a simple DNA test kit by mail. Simply do a quick cheek swab (no spitting required) and get your DNA results fast.

How do you know what foods and exercises work best for me?

Your DNA provides insights into the type of muscle fiber you have, the inflammation you experience, the nutritional deficiencies and health risks you have, and so much more.

We combine that information with our expertise in fitness and nutrition to give you precise, data-driven tips and strategies for a better life.

Who owns my DNA? Will you sell my DNA?

You still own your DNA information. We simply use it to create personalized lifestyle and health reports for you.

We will never sell or share your DNA with anyone without your permission. However, if you would like us to send your DNA to your doctor for personalized healthcare and medication guidance, we will be happy to.

Do you test for the MTHFR gene?

Yes. The MTHFR gene is vital to your mental health, cancer risk, potential pregnancy complications, and neurological disorders.

Our test will reveal your risk for many of these possible mutations in the MTHFR gene.

Does my DNA determine what sports I can play or what career I should follow?

No. Your DNA report helps you achieve your goals, but it shouldn’t change your goals.

Your DNA report provides insights into your strengths and weaknesses. However, you still decide how you live your life.

If you want to run marathons, but you have more power-sport focused genes, that simply means you should adjust your training to make the best use of your natural talents.
