NEW ORLEANS, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GenoVive, a company with a revolutionary gene-based approach to weight management, announced a new partnership with FitLab, Unilab Consumer Health, to offer its personalized health program in Southeast Asia. GenoVive is the first in its field to design diet and fitness regiments for individuals based on the unique genetic information found in their DNA. With this new partnership, GenoVive has a global presence now in five countries, including Philippines, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
"FitLab is the only DNA-based weight management solution provider in the Philippines that combines the benefits of movement, nutrition and motivation to ensure that clients achieve not only their weight goals, but ultimately a sustainable healthy lifestyle. Through its exclusive partnership with GenoVive, a U.S. based nutrigenomics company that promotes weight loss designed by science, FitLab is able to individually assess how each unique client metabolizes macronutrients and react to certain exercises based on their own DNA. This becomes the basis of a hyper-customized 3-month nutrition, movement and motivation plan that offers clients the highest chance of achieving their weight goals. Recent scientific advances in genomics are changing how people manage their health; the use of genetic information to assist in health is now a reality," states Mrs. Raine Romero-Calma, director of FitLab.
"We are delighted to have such a well known and respected partner to expand our personalized program to combat globesity in the Philippines', which is deeply affecting the majority of Philippines' healthcare costs," states Victor Castellon, PharmD, CEO and founder of GenoVive USA.
Metabolism and body weight are based largely on the genes that one inherits from ones parents. Everyone's body is different, and so too should be the way that we eat and exercise. GenoVive uses an individual's DNA to design a diet and exercise plan specifically for them. This personalized approach means more weight loss in less time.
