What is the science behind 20DNA?

20DNA helps you Eat for Your Genes. We analyze 100+ genetic markers that determine your specific needs for 26 vital nutrients such as carbohydrates, vitamin D, and sodium. Then we combine your genetic results with millions of nutritional variables to recommend the foods you should eat more of. Your report includes your genetic results, what they mean, and a personalized list of the 60+ foods that benefit you most. Start eating healthier, based on you

How do you make the connection between my genes and nutrition recommendations?

We use evidence-based research from over 1,000 high-impact clinical trials and studies of nutritional and health outcomes genomics to form our recommendations. From these scientific conclusions, we recommend the foods that have the highest amount of nutrients that your genotypes have shown to benefit from.

What is a genotype?

You have two copies of each gene, one from your mom and one from your dad. Your genotype refers to the two nucleotides (A, C, G, or T) found at the same location on each copy of a gene.

What is the process for providing my DNA information?

It’s simple. Upload your raw data from 23andMe, Ancestry, or My Heritage and in as little as 3 minutes, get your 20 DNA Diet and Nutrition Profile

What nutritional insights will the report provide me?

Your 20 DNA Diet and Nutrition Profile will provide insights into your recommended macronutrient (carbohydrates, protein and fat) intake level and micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) intake level. You also receive a lifetime membership to 20 Dishes, a customizable digital meal planner with shopping lists and prep-ahead guides so that you can incorporate the  foods that you would benefit from eating more of based on your genetic results.

Do you test for allergies or food sensitivities?

20 DNA does not provide any medical information or a diagnosis. We share information about sensitivities you may have to gluten and lactose, based on your genes.

I struggle with my weight, can 20 DNA help with this?

Because weight is influenced by a number of factors, 20 DNA cannot guarantee weight loss. We provide you with nutrition and food recommendations, based on your genes, to help you eat better for a healthier life

I’m a diabetic, can I still use 20 DNA’s product?

To ensure that science and your DNA data is the core of our product, your food recommendations are based on your genetic data and are not altered by any dietary plans you may currently follow. We encourage you to incorporate 20DNA’s product along with recommendations from your healthcare team.

How do I download my existing DNA data?
What file format should my data be in? How do I get my data in this format?
