BOSTON, July 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Orig3n, Inc., a Boston-based biotech company pioneering the future of wellness through genetics and regenerative medicine research, today announced the national launch of a new Run™ DNA Test to give runners the insight they need to reach the finish line faster. The $99 test will now allow individuals to learn about four key categories: Nutrition, Training, Endurance and Recovery associated with running performance.
"We are so excited to introduce the Run™ DNA Test to the public," said Robin Smith, co-founder and CEO of Orig3n. "DNA is a valuable tool for assessing fitness potential and now everyone can discover insights into their own running potential — and learn how to boost their performance."
Featuring 24 genes, the Run™ DNA Test premiered in May during the annual Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers event in San Francisco, at the Orig3n Health and Wellness Expo where thousands of participants gave the Run™ DNA Explorer test positive reviews.
The test answers key questions for runners to help them better train, including:
- Are you more likely to be built for speed — or endurance?
- Does your body have a tendency to bulk up — or slim down?
- How quickly might you bounce back after a run?
"Our new Run™ DNA Test was so well-received during race weekend that we decided to accelerate the launch nationally. It's about making fitness choices that are more in line with your genes and your body — simple as that," said Smith.
Run™ DNA joins Orig3n's portfolio of direct to consumer DNA tests that also include Nutrition, Fitness and Metabolism tests, among others. All Orig3n DNA test reports are delivered via a mobile app exclusively on the Apple app store or online to enable easy integration into individuals' active lifestyles.
