A DNA-precise health plan designed to help you live your best life.
The Book Of You
No matter your age, race or gender, understanding your genomic profile provides a guide for you and your clinician in the care of your body and mind. Your clinician can use an IntellxxDNA test to provide comprehensive, clinical-focused knowledge of health risks and benefits within your personal genetic make-up. Our reports are a foundation for planning your personalized approach toward optimal health, wellness and an improved quality of life.
Gain molecular-level insight into your state of well-being
Learn how to support your body using personalized nutrition, vitamins and supplements, as well as lifestyle changes to reduce the need for medications
Reduce frustration, time and money by using state-of-the-art advanced genomic technology to avoid unnecessary typical, trial and error approach to treatment
Feel confident that your health care plan is being designed specifically for you.
Your clinician will initiate the process by ordering your kit and providing a login to your online portal.
When your test kit arrives in the mail, log into your portal to activate your kit barcode, and follow the instructions in the kit to collect your saliva sample.
Mail your kit (postage-free in the USA). We’ll send you an email as soon as your results are available.
Schedule an appointment with your clinician to discuss your results and begin the process of creating a personalized health plan based on the real you!
What Do The Reports Show?
IntellxxDNA reports don’t make decisions for you. Instead, they provide unprecedented insight into your unique genetic make-up to assist your clinician in developing true, personalized care. How?
Your DNA contains variants, or SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), that may signal potential benefits and risks that lie within your DNA. Our reports examine the complex interplay between these variants and how they can affect your quality of life. We include evidence-based, well-researched potential intervention strategies – encompassing environment, lifestyle, nutrition, supplements and medications – that will serve as a basis of discussion between you and your clinician.

A New Tool for Personalized Action
A doctor/patient tells of her IntellxxDNA experience
Since technology has advanced so much in the last decade, I recently took an even deeper dive into my genomics – looking at genetic factors that influence inflammation, response to infection, risks for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis and more.
My past attempts to look at these genetic factors using commonly used testing kits led me to little actionable information. It was like, “you have these genes that make you more likely to have Alzheimer’s Disease. And you have these genes that make you less likely to have Alzheimer’s disease. Now what?” Needless to say, I was not recommending these direct-to-consumer tests to my patients as they seemed to cause them more worry and confusion.
But now I’ve found a tool in IntellxxDNA that not only can provide information on your gene risks, but also what actions you can take to mitigate those risks. (This tool even gave some insight as to how I might respond to coronavirus infection!) I was already incorporating many of the actions needed to reduce my risks for many chronic diseases, and seeing the evidence further reinforced my positive actions. For instance, I was surprised to see that I have some genes that predispose me to obesity – but my lifestyle choices have been able to keep that at bay.
I truly believe that use of this knowledge can be life-changing!

Below are answers to frequently asked questions about IntellxxDNA tests ordered by a patient’s clinician. Ready to get started? Find a clinician in your area for assistance.
What is clinical genomic testing? How is it different than some of the tests that I can order by myself?
You may have seen commercials for companies that provide DNA tests and health reports to the general public, often piggybacking on consumer interest in genealogy and ancestry. We appreciate that their marketing efforts have brought the concept of genomics and health into the public eye. However, direct-to-consumer tests and reports are not medically comprehensive. In other words, they don’t tell the whole story.
IntellxxDNA™ provides your clinician with in-depth, evidence-based, science-focused genomic intelligence. When your test results are ready, you will meet with your clinician to discuss the risks and benefits within your genomic profile, and review potential prevention or intervention strategies to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. The entire process supports an informed interpretation of test results and an understanding of next steps.

Knowing risks in my DNA feels scary. Do I really want to know? And if I do know, what can I, really, do about it?
Your DNA is not your destiny. In fact, understanding your genomic profile empowers you to make intelligent health and wellness choices now that may impact your future quality of life. Your clinician will review your genomic profile as one of several factors of consideration when making clinical decisions to help you achieve optimal health.
The field of medical genomics is complex, even for well-trained clinicians. IntellxxDNA™ provides clinicians with ongoing education to ensure that they have access to the latest, evidence-based, genomic interpretations available.
Your medical genomic make-up is foundational information to be understood within the context of your entire health and wellness profile. Your healthcare provider will use information learned through genomic intelligence to support clinical decisions that are personalized to your unique health care needs and goals.
Does health insurance pay for IntellxxDNA™ tests or reports? Will genetic testing affect my health insurance?
IntellxxDNA™ does not sell directly to consumers and does not accept insurance at this time. You should know that the Genetics Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) prohibits insurance companies and employers with >15 employees from acquiring results of genetic tests. Group health insurance companies cannot use genetic information to deny coverage, establish pre-existing condition clauses, or change premiums, and may not require genetic testing.
Genetic information within medical records are subject to review by providers of life insurance, long-term care insurance and disability insurance. If your IntellxxDNA™ report uncovers a risk that may be important to include in your health record, discuss the pros and cons with your licensed health care professional. IntellxxDNA™ provides guidance to clinicians regarding best practices.
