This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Helix for IZEA. All opinions of this Helix DNA test review are 100% mine. Y’all know I have been searching for the secret to my weight loss and I have shared every moment with you along the way. Well… I think I made a breakthrough and it’s all thanks to the DNAFit’s Fitness Diet Pro Kit that I found on the Helix Store!
DNA Can Do What? Helix DNA Test Review
This kit is AMAZING and I have learned so much about myself from one simple test! One of the things that drew me to Helix was their mission statement and what they are trying to achieve. I want to share that with y’all.
Helix Mission Statement: “It’s our mission to empower every person to improve their life through DNA. We believe in a world where everyone benefits from their biological information and is able to help all of humanity lead better lives.”
How inspirational and mind-blowing is that?
DNA Can Do What ?!?
With their high-quality, trusted partners and state-of-the-art lab they’ve created the first
platform of personalized products and services powered by genetics. Some of their partners
include DNAFit, Mayo Clinic, Invitae, Mount Sinai, National Geographic, Vinome and so much more.
Each product will provide you with unique insights about yourself based on your DNA and actions you can take based on that information. For instance, the first product you purchase through Helix might teach you about your ancestry or health! After you’re sequenced by Helix to generate the insights for this first product, you’ll then be able to purchase MORE DNA-powered products without being sequenced again.
Products you might be able to purchase through Helix in the future include (but are not limited to):
- Fertility and Family Planning
- Food and Drink Recommendations
- Hereditary Cancer Screenings
- Personalized Nutrition and Exercise Plans
- Personalized Digital Experiences (think custom emojis, video games, and etc.)
Helix’s proprietary technology, called Exome+, reads every letter of all 22,000 Protein-coding genes in your body, which produces 100 times more data than most consumer genetics companies.
I had to see this for myself! So I ordered one of the products: Fitness Diet Pro by DNAFit.
For the FIRST 25 people to order the kit using my discount code: HelixfB2N You’ll get a 30% discount off your first purchase!
Why Fitness Diet Pro Above The Rest!
The reason I ordered this specific kit is that DNA Fit’s Fitness Diet Pro will help you understand how your body responds to power or endurance training! It can also help you determine your resilience to sports injury, and recovery speed in hopes to help you make the right exercise choices for you.
Or in the case of diet, Fitness Diet Pro tells you about your genetic response to carbohydrates, saturated fats, lactose, alcohol, and caffeine and you’ll also learn whether your genetics indicate an increased need for antioxidants and certain vitamins.
Here’s How It Works!
Order any product from their partners through Helix, and they will send you a DNA collection kit in the mail like this one!
The first thing you’ll see is this GET STARTED guide along with your unique Kit ID you’ll use to register your kit. I’m so excited to get a better understanding of the journey I’m about to embark on!
Along with your guide and ID kit, the box will come with:
- Saliva collection tube, cap, and printed instructions
- A small bag and prepaid box to send your saliva sample to the lab
You will next register your DNA kit and provide a small saliva sample.
FUN FACT: Do NOT eat, drink, smoke, chew gum, or brush your teeth 30 mins before providing your saliva sample!
It took me ALL DAY because I kept forgetting! HA!
The last thing you’ll have to do is drop it in the mail using the provided pre-paid shipping box you get in your kit! That’s it!
After providing a small saliva sample and sending it back to the lab, they will sequence your DNA by reading the millions of letters of your genetic code that you inherited from your parents. Then Helix stores and protects your genetic data so you can access and share it with any partner of your choosing without ever having to provide another DNA sample.
You will receive an email from DNAFit to view your results when they’re ready!
I will be writing another post to share my results with y’all and what my next steps will be!

BRB! I gotta go drop off my sample in the mail!
I got my results in and let me just tell you… I was surprised but at the same time, not really.
This is a copy of my results!
According to my Helix sample, I am
- Carbohydrate Sensitive
- Saturated Fat Sensitive
- Alcohol Sensitive
- Antioxidants Needed
- Cruciferous Vegetable Needed
What surprised me the most was my tolerance for dairy was normal…
Did NOT see that coming!
And I thanked the sweet lord my caffeine sensitivity was normal as well. That would NOT have gone over well!
The Optimal Diet type recommended is reduced carbs and fat so I’m going to get my butt back on WHOLE 30!
This entire experience has been so helpful in putting me back on track and letting me target areas that REALLY needed my attention. I really hope y’all try out this kit and share your results with us. We can do this TOGETHER!
