Why Vitagene?

Unique, Like You

Human beings share approximately 99.5% of their genetic makeup. While 0.5% may not seem to be a big difference, this remaining 0.5% is what makes each person look, feel, and behave so differently. Differences in your DNA are called variants, and can indicate certain traits related to nutrition, exercise, and supplementation as well as speak to your ethnic composition.

Using the DNA present in the cells in your mouth through saliva, we can help you learn a lot of information about your current and future health. After you complete your sample, our CLIA-certified lab extracts your DNA from your saliva, and analyzes hundreds of thousands of variants throughout your genome.

Once our scientists have analyzed your sample, we provide you with completely personalized report using only well-established scientific and medical research in the fields of nutrition and genetics.

Company Mission

Every year, people spend hundreds of billions on over-the-counter products (e.g. vitamins, etc.), try new fad diets, and adopt new fitness crazes believing that these choices will improve their health and help them reach their goals.

But this behavior neglects one critical factor: we’re all different.

Vitagene celebrates these differences by providing the ultimate tool to discover a healthier future – the most science-driven, complete, and affordable DNA test.

In addition to enlightening them with the story of their ancestry and where their people came from, we leverage big data, machine learning, and the latest scientific research and technology to ensure that what they’re buying, taking, and doing is right for their body so that they can truly feel better, be healthier, and finally reach their goals.
