『DNA+』 Genetic Test - The book of Genes series DNA+ Nutrition Gene Test


Acecgt NutriGene’s advanced DNA technology has rewritten the traditional concept we had related to health and losing weight!

Is it necessary to take away cooked rice and oil from your diet to lose weight? Genetics tells us this may not be the case. Surprisingly certain people can lose weight efficiently by eating more cooked rice and oil. There are some who choose to eat healthy oils to lose weight, however the result is not an obvious one.

While people may believe that doing exercise regularly will always get you a healthy body, in fact not everyone will gain the same benefits even when they do the same amount if exercise as others.

Some people have a greater affinity to desserts, some may feel tired and sleepy after drinking coffee or some people may suffer from flushed face after drinking wine.

Our DNA+ Nutrition Gene Test is the best approach to solve these puzzles piece by piece. Analyze your some of the genes and discover whether you are born to be "beautiful/healthy". Define your health status and break through the myths within your health. Give yourself a chance, choosing to walk on the right path, understanding your genes is actually the first step to making changes to your health status.

Hi-Tech Gene Tech

We have a set of precise specifications, indicating our insistence on skilled craftsmanship. We won't allow your genes to become part of a "regular test procedure".

Your genes represent the unique YOU, and we treasure it. Since we are the professionals, it is our responsibility to uncover the true status of your body and health.

We have gathered heaps of proven data during our "DNA+ Book of Genes Series" project. We have studied the data and understood how best to proceed. Utilizing this knowledge we will analyze and select the genetic differences that represent your health to perform our lab tests. Then, based on the linked genetic differences, we perform the lab test again. With our precise DNA+ specification, we pick out significant (representative) genes as genetic indicators, to perform your unique DNA+ gene test.

20 Categories

Four areas, 20 angles, precise numbers, and informative graphics will open your world of genes to anyone you wish.

Our DNA+ Nutrition Gene Test focuses on 4 major areas: body shape, food sensitivity, nutrient needs, and exercise indicator. Using selected SNPs inside our genes, we find out 20 secret facts that directly relate to your health. We will provide you with a detailed health report via our DNA+ Nutrition Gene Test.

Four areas, 20 angles include:

Body Shape

Everyone has their own conception of beauty, but one this is for certain – we all want to be healthy and have a good body shape.

However, our genes are major factors that affect how easy we can achieve a good body shape. These 4 types of genes can help uncover some of the secrets that affect everyone's body shape.

Obesity Risk

Many women may say, "I am naturally fat or thin", "even drinking water can make me fat", "I can eat anything I want and still stay in shape" – so can our genes truly help us to understand more of these situations?

Via some selected genes, we are able to uncover the obesity risk of an individual, and that means genes can answer whether you have the tendency of being fat or not. However, even if you have relatively low obesity risk, that doesn't mean you can continuously eat food with high calories without a cost. If you love stuffing yourself with high energy or sugary food, it will still increase your obesity risk.

Fat Storage

Fat can store in any part of our body, but the thing that can annoy us is Central Obesity. If your PLIN1 genes tell you that your body tends to store more fat, you will need to be aware central obesity. A sagging belly could destroy the great body shape you’ve worked hard for and trigger your health alarm.

If you tend to store fat easily, you need to be aware of central obesity.

Sugar Intake

Many women say they have two separate stomaches, one is for savory food, another is for sweet dessert. The fact is, part of the population has a set of sweet teeth and can't avoid the power of desserts.

If your genes indicate you are a fan of desserts and all things sweet, you need to be aware of your daily diet. Don't consume too much sugar.

Fat Intake

Just like sugar, some people particularly crave food with fat. These people like the taste of meat and fat, and they also like deep-fried food. These may be caused by the MC4R genes, which make the body more likely to intake more fat.

Food Sensitivity

Food sensitivity is different from food allergy, it relates to the level of food or certain ingredients that affect you, and which part of the body it affects. By testing the related genes, you will be able to understand which foods you should eat and what ingredients provide the best benefits to your body and health.


Most people who are dieting would always say, body weight will decrease when you consume less carbohydrates. However, if you have a certain genetic coding that is beneficial to you, this rule may not apply to you. Inversely you may need a high carbohydrate and low fat diet to lose weight.


Some may ask: “Doesn't coffee keep you awake? Why do I feel so sleepy after drinking coffee?”. Actually, if your genes show that you tend to have faster metabolic speed towards caffeine, you may not feel awake even after drinking cups of coffee.


There are people around us whose face and body will turn red after drinking alcohol. There are two possibilities for this: maybe he or she is allergic to alcohol or the contents in alcohol, or their genetic coding gives them a slower metabolic rate against alcohol. Although alcohol may not get you drunk easily, you should be aware of your body’s reaction (like feeling unwell or sick) after drinking too much alcohol.

MUFA (Mono-Unsaturated Fatty Acids)

When it comes to unsaturated fatty acids, it can be divided into monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Monounsaturated fatty acids can be found in the cooking oil and food, including peanut oil, canola oil, almonds and hazelnuts. Monounsaturated fatty acids are actually good antioxidants, which can reduce bad cholesterol damage, and can help some people who have a genetic advantage, to lose weight.

PUFA (Polyunsaturated fatty acids)

Still a form of unsaturated fatty acids, PUFA mainly helps to keep your blood vessels healthy. Everyone can benefit from consuming PUFA, however, those who have a genetic advantage will get far better results than those without.

Vitamin Needs

Vitamins have a very important role as nutrients, they can maintain the normal functions of our organs, and help us grow. Since our body cannot make vitamins on its own, we must intake vitamins via our daily diet. In fact, everyone's genes have a different level of needs on vitamins. Shall we be more alert to intake some of the vitamins? Our test will answer the question for you.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin responsible for different functions in our body. It is one of the cornerstones of maintaining the immune system, promoting body growth, and protecting eyesight, body cells and tissues. Lacking vitamin A, the body may show symptoms of cystic fibrosis, immunity problems, dryness of skin and other health risks.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is responsible for the production of antibodies for the immune system and hormone synthesis, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, which helps to regulate mood, quality of sleep and other functions of normal brain development. If the body lacks vitamin B6, there is a possibility that anemia, depression and concentration difficulties and other health risks may begin to develop.

Vitamin B9

Vitamin B9 (also known as folic acid) plays an indispensable role in the formation of red blood cells, for the prevention of anemia, and amino acid synthesis, which is the basis for producing protein and energy metabolism. A deficiency of vitamin B9 could lead to a chance of fetal injury during pregnancy period (neural tube defects, heart defects), poor body growth and inflammation of the tongue and other health risks.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is also known as Cobalt Ammonia, a water-soluble vitamin that is an important vitamin for maintaining healthy nervous systems. In addition to being a cofactor for DNA and RNA synthesis, it also helps to release the energy of the body for our own use. Vitamin B12 is also responsible for producing red blood cells to prevent anemia. A deficiency of vitamin B12 could lead to the body developing anemia, constipation, fatigue and other health risks.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has a variety of functions. For example, it is the main element of collagen synthesis, which is the important formation component of our general skin tissue, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels and helps us to heal wounds. Vitamin C's antioxidant properties can reduce the internal damage caused by free radicals on our cells and DNA. Some studies have shown that it can reduce the risk of getting chronic diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, and arthritis. A deficiency of vitamin C could lead to the body showing symptoms of scurvy, bad wound healing, fatigue and other health risks.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that has many important functions in our body. Its most widely known function is to promote calcium absorption in the body to help grow and maintain strong bones and maintain adequate serum calcium levels. Deficiency in vitamin D could lead to the body developing osteoporosis, rickets, muscle weakness and other health risks.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E has a strong antioxidant function, meaning that it helps prevent free radicals from damaging the body's cells. Many studies have found that antioxidants protect the body from chronic diseases (including heart disease and cancer). In addition, vitamin E has other functions, such as immunization, cell signaling and other metabolic processes. One of the functions is to produce red blood cells together with vitamin K. A lack of vitamin E could lead to symptoms of immune system damage, sensory nerve injury/destruction (peripheral neuropathy), muscle weakness (myopathy) and other health risks.

Exercise Index

In our busy society, those who live in the city use to maintain a hectic lifestyle with an intense work life. The convenient transportation system in the city has decreased the need of walking to work, while the hectic city lifestyle doesn’t even allow for regular exercise. While some people may be actively doing exercises, but they might not be able to keep it as a long-term habit. All these "difficulties" lead to a lack of routine exercise with urban people. However, if we tell you, you may possess "a kind of" sports genes which allow you to do less exercise than other people while still achieving good results to make you fit and healthy, so would it change your mind to start exercise from now on?

So let take action and start up your exercise plan now.

Metabolic Rate (Basal)

Even when our body is still, we continue to burn energy to keep our body functioning, such as breathing, digesting, and metabolism. When compared to the energy fats would use, muscle requires 22.5 times more energy (when comparing 1kg fat to 1kg muscle). Therefore, knowing your basal metabolic rate is the first step in planning your exercise routine.

Effectiveness of Losing Weight

Most people will use different ways (including diet and exercise) to shorten the time needed for weight loss and increase its effectiveness. However, not everyone can use the same extreme methods as these people to lose weight effectively due to differences in their genetic makeup.

Amount of Exercise

Exercise is a vital practice for us to keep in shape and keep our body healthy. Not only can exercise effectively burn calories from our body, it also helps deliver nutrition to every part of our body, and there are so many benefits that exercise can bring us. However, some people with genetic disadvantages may take more effort and time to achieve the same exercise results as others. This is not a reason to give up exercise though. If you put more effort on exercise, you can still change your natural born disadvantage.

Effectiveness of Exercise

There are people who are born with advantageous genes that give them an edge when they perform exercise. Their superior exercise genes improve effectiveness of losing weight allowing them to perform better and reap greater rewards with exercise or sports.


As the genetic testing professionals for your family, our team will take the mantle of your personal genetics detective. Allow us to face the challenges of science so we can provide you with the most professional service.

As Dr. Billy Chan, the DNA Research Lab director of Acecgt NutriGene Ltd. says, “the process for our scientists to provide clients with their DNA data is a complicated one”. The main reason for this comment is because the team need to cross check 20,000 sets of functional genes and focus them on health related issues.

Since 2014 when Acecgt NutriGene Ltd. first began providing nutritional genetics tests, we have worked tirelessly to provide the public with more health related genetics information. Since the public is increasingly more concerned about "Preventative Medicine" and "customized solutions", in 2017 we launched the all-new DNA+ genes test, in order to offer a broader field of services.

Customer sharing

Nothing beats our customers’ feedback. With our experience within the genetics field, we hope to always provide new scope and services to our customers. Since 2014, customers have gained great benefits from the unique DNA+ reports generated specifically for them. These reports have brought them a better and healthier life. These include:

I could set my weight loss program based on my DNA report recommendations, and with a full set of recommendations specifically for me, I don't need to lose weight without a plan. It is a lifetime job for women to lose weight, and this report is a lifetime tool for me.

Florence Chan

I have been following the DNA Weight Management Program for 3 months, before that, I never knew losing weight could be so healthy and with a great healthy diet!

Deevian Pau

After a few months I have developed a routine diet habit. I have lost 20 pounds without even noticing. Within this period, not only is there a change in my weight, I’ve also become and feel healthier than ever. After a few months, my weight did not bounce back, because I have already set up easy-to-follow routines. Now I can also go out and dine with my friends, and have a better understanding on how to choose what I eat.

We insist every single kind of lab test represents an innovative scientific achievement. Therefore, the numbers below should help satisfy your logical side:

By studying one’s unique genetic coordinates from the field of science, for the purpose of changing one’s lifestyle and diet plan, it was proven helpful for those who took the DNA test to achieve their goals.

Based on the studies of over 170,000 people by the Human Molecular Genetics in 2014, we found out different fat genes coordinates would obviously relate differently to our body weight (calculated by Body mass index). However, there may be others who hold fat genes coordinates, but it is not impossible to make changes.

From the studies of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2009, over 20,000 people's fat genes are related to overweight (calculated by Body Mass Index). However, the studies have also stated that exercise could decrease this gene’s effects at a certain level.
