Indus Health Plus, a pioneer in the preventive healthcare sector, launched DNAwise 2.0, a revolutionary personal genomics test. It is a genetic test that decodes the genetic makeup and informs an individual about the predisposition for various health conditions. Besides, it helps to understand the best diet and fitness regime for a person.

The advanced DNAwise 2.0 has expanded its horizon of genetic analysis by incorporating 17 new parameters under heath, nutrition and fitness. In addition, a new category – ‘Habit’ has also been introduced which reports on three parameters: Alcohol Dependence, Caffeine Consumption, and Nicotine Dependence. It has been observed that people have a tendency for high consumption of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine in many forms like smoking, tobacco chewing etc. Genetics play an important role in determining the tendency for above mentioned habits (addictions) along with various psychological and environmental factors.

DNAwise 2.0 is a saliva-based user-friendly genetic test that can be done from the comfort of home. Indus Health Plus has a strong network across the country that provides door – to – door sample collection service for consumers.

It analyses the health conditions, habits, nutrition & fitness traits based on one’s genetics. It can empower people to personalize their health checkups and make informed lifestyle modifications/choices. Knowing the genetic predispositions to various health parameters helps an individual to delay/prevent the onset of the health condition by modifying lifestyle.”
