DNA, is a complex molecule that contains all of the information necessary to build and maintain an organism. All living things have DNA within their cells.
However, DNA does more than specify the structure and function of living things — it also serves as the primary unit of heredity in organisms of all types. In other words, whenever organisms reproduce, a portion of their DNA is passed along to their offspring.
All of us live in the same world, we breathe the same air and wake up to the same sun. But, there is one thing that makes us unique - our DNA and it is this uniqueness which is brought forward by “VLCC DNA Wellness” which is a special initiative to understand and co-relate your genes with specific Health and Wellness parameters
VLCC introduces a new series of DNA Test Panels for Weight loss, Predictive and Preventive Health Care and lastly Management of an existing Medical condition.
Under this platform, we would be providing a list of genetic tests that help individuals understand their tendency towards Obesity and also lifestyle diseases and also to understand the right changes to be made in diet, exercise and lifestyle to avoid the same.
DNA (Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid) is a chemical molecule present in all our cells and is responsible for directing body functions and structure.
