With National DNA Day on April 25th, Suracell Inc. urges Americans to use
their genes to promote healthy aging
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- At the local drug store, do you stock up on everything touted as "good for you?" Convinced there's nothing you can do to improve the way you age? Think again, says Suracell, Inc., the pioneer in personal genetic health. With National DNA Day on April 25, Suracell is urging Americans to be proactive about their genetic legacy. By discovering your personal genetic health (PGH) profile through physician-supervised DNA testing, a nutritional supplement and lifestyle plan can be customized specifically for you, so you're not a passive victim of genetic inheritance.
"In today's world, you take your car to the mechanic, he plugs it into his computer and has enough information to know what's wrong and how to fix it. DNA testing provides that same window into your body's health, allowing a medical professional to know how to help you strengthen your genetic make-up," says Vincent Giampapa, MD, founder of Suracell, renowned anti-aging physician, plastic surgeon and author of five books including the newly released, "The Gene Makeover: The 21st Century Anti-Aging Breakthrough."
Suracell wants the public to know we can now age better than our
predecessors. The company is the first to create a physician-supervised,
DNA test available only through a medical, health or wellness center
affiliated with Suracell. The test utilizes cheek swab samples and
biomarkers that are sent to certified testing laboratories where your
Personal Genetic Health (PGH) profile is determined. Once your results are
sent back to Suracell, they are reviewed by medical professionals, along
with findings from your lifestyle questionnaire. The team evaluates how
efficiently your body handles the five key biological processes critical to
-- Blood sugar control
-- Inflammation control
-- Protection from oxidative stress and resulting free radicals
-- Optimal gene expression related to cardiovascular health
-- Normal cellular and DNA repair
The Suracell team then creates your individualized PGH Program, comprised of specific nutritional supplements related to your genetic makeup and unique needs, as well as lifestyle recommendations for healthy aging. Only Suracell emphasizes specific genetic characteristics related to the five key healthy aging processes when developing these personalized programs.
Suracell "Core Nutrition" products can be ordered without DNA testing, while the "Repair" products are included as part of the complete PGH Program.
Suracell's DNA Analysis kits are available through medical spas, physician offices and wellness centers nationwide. For information regarding Suracell's supplements, see http://www.agebetternow.com. To find out more about Suracell, see http://www.suracell.com.
