Why should I get my DNA tested? Understanding your genetic tendencies can tell you a lot about whether your diet, lifestyle, or certain remedies, are working for or against you.Whether you seek to optimise your health or overcome a pre-existing issue, getting your DNA genotyped will tell you a lot about your body and open doors to effective gene-targeted protocols.

Why should I get my DNA tested with Brain Labs rather than other companies? Firstly, we are 100% Australian owned, managed and based, with our offices are in Cairns FNQ. Humans have about 10 million single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), the majority of which have no effect on health. To make genotyping affordable, DNA testing companies focus on a subset most relevant to their goals, such as for identifying ancestral lineage or for health research. 23andme tests approximately 650,000 variants, while Ancestry tests for 669,000 variants. Our Brain Labs DNA screen tests over 750,000 variants. Shop Now What if I don’t have a genetics or medical background? You’re at the right place! Brain Labs was created to help people just like you make the most of their genetic data. Our DNA Wellness Reports, which shortlist your most important SNPs, explain their importance, and give gene-targeted health tips anyone can understand. We make it easy to understand if your genes are producing positive or negative health effects in your reports, then, we provide personalised suggestions based on your unique results. All of our information is backed by science, so you'll always find references throughout our reports and articles, but we work hard at analysing the information so that we can present it to you in an easy-to-understand manner.

Brain Labs explained (Your Other Brains)

Did you know the human body actually has three brains? Neuroscience over the last few years has shown that aside from your head brain (the one we’re all familiar with, the ‘cephalic brain’), we also have a heart-brain (‘cardiac brain’) and a gut-brain (‘enteric brain’).

Each of these brains is a sophisticated system of sensory neurons, motor neurons, neurotransmitters, and ganglia. They are able to receive and process information, store it, and access it again when needed. They can: sense, learn, remember, communicate, and change!

Hover over the below boxes and/or click on them

Cephalic Brain (Head)

  • 86 billion neurons
  • The seat of language, cognition, perception, consciousness, and creativity
  • Recognises, gives meaning, creates narratives, semantic processing, narrative, metaphor
  • “I think,” “I reckon,” “I understand”

Cardiac Brain (Heart)

  • 40,000 neurons that can operate independently from the head brain
  • Handles emotional processing, expression of values, and interpersonal connections
  •  “I feel,” “My heart says,” “Heavy/light heart”

Enteric Brain (Gut)

  • In fact, as Evolution suggests, our ‘first’ Brain and the most important
  • 500 million neurons
  • Controls self-preservation and mobilisation, respond to challenges, opposition, and danger
  •  Determines the core sense of self
  •  “It takes guts,” “my gut tells me”

What prevents these three from working together? Some of it is simply that one or two of the brains override the other/s. Different people will have different leanings as to which of these brains dominate the most, some people will have much more of an orientation towards say, the head function. It is a Neural network and, neural networks grow and evolve the more you use them.

We are a complex processing machine. The more we know about how each of these ‘Brains’ works, what they need to function at their best and, how they can be brought together to work in concert with the rest of your body the better.

Understanding your genetic tendencies can tell you a lot about whether your diet, lifestyle or certain remedies work for or against you. Whether you seek to optimise your health or overcome a pre-existing issue, getting your DNA genotyped will tell you a lot about your body and open doors to effective gene-targeted protocols.
