Genetic nutritionist Kate Llewellyn-Waters is delighted to announce the launch of The Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance Test. The unique DNA test looks at the genes associated with emotional wellbeing and positive performance in the workplace, including what your genetic predisposition is to stress, anxiety, low mood and sleep. Using these results, DNA Plan offers practical advice about how you can better both your health and lifestyle to create a well-balanced, healthy and happy work life.
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year, and in England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem such as anxiety and low mood in any given week (1), which is often exasperated by stress at work.
The Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance DNA Test (£199) considers genetic variants that can affect this and provides practical advice that optimises your genetic potential. Factors studied include:
- Emotions, social behaviour and personality (empathy, reward-seeking, impulsiveness, neuroticism, predisposition to feelings of low mood and anxiety)
- Response to stress and how to manage it (are you a warrior or worrier?)
- Response to sleep and quality of sleep
- Alcohol craving and dependence
- Caffeine metabolism
- Vitamin B/folate requirements for optimum brain health, production and balance of neurotransmitters, healthy nervous system and energy production
- Cognitive function and memory performance
- Response to pain and how to improve your pain tolerance
The Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance Test couldn’t be easier. The test is done at home via a simple 30-second mouth swab – your results are then sent back to the lab for detailed analysis. You then receive a full report of findings and advice, so even if you do have a negative genetic variant, these can be counteracted by nutritional and lifestyle interventions.
The Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance Test is the brainchild of genetic nutritionist Kate Llewellyn-Waters, who also founded the What IF Plan, the world’s first intermittent fasting weight management programme based on your unique DNA results. Kate is an expert in nutrigenomics with over 12 years of nutrition experience and has a team of several other MSc. qualified nutritionists and leading scientific advisors on board.
Kate Llewellyn-Waters, Founder ofThe Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance Test comments:
‘I am absolutely thrilled to be launching The Emotional Wellbeing and Workplace Performance Test following many years of scientific research into the topic with a team of scientists, DNA, fitness and nutrition experts. So many people struggle with their emotions on a daily basis and I believe through understanding their genetics and predisposition to stress and anxiety, they will be able to overcome this and learn new coping mechanisms as recommended within their plan.’
