PALMYRA, WI — June 21, 2018 — Standard Process and Genomind have announced a partnership to assist patients with personal wellness. Genomind is the developer of the new genetic test Mindful DNA® Professional, used to help guide lifestyle, diet and nutritional supplement decisions to improve the overall health and wellbeing of patients.
Mindful DNA provides evidence-based, personalized, actionable information, based on patients’ genetic results that helps them adjust their lifestyle, diet, habits and activities to improve their overall quality of life. It analyzes variations in 32 key genes in six domains of health: Cognition & Mental Acuity, Cardiometabolic, Gastrointestinal (GI) & Immune, Stress & Emotional Wellbeing, Inflammation and Sleep.
Testing with Mindful DNA is simple and quick. A DNA sample is collected by a cheek swab and the results are returned to the ordering clinician in 10 days or less. Healthcare practitioners can then use the Mindful DNA test results to create personalized wellness plans using Standard Process products.
“This is a very exciting step that allows us to provide practitioners and patients advanced insight into patient resiliency from stress and anxiety,” says John Troup, PhD, Standard Process Vice President of Clinical Science, Education & Innovation. “With the genetic results from Mindful DNA, we will be able to bridge the gap between mind and body, and provide more personalized nutritional support. This is a perfect fit for our commitment to being the preferred practitioner partner in the delivery of advanced nutrition therapy programs and expertise. We chose Genomind because they have conducted over 150,000 genetic tests for patients around the world and developed Mindful DNA based on their expertise in brain health and belief in the importance of the mind-body connection.”
“We know Standard Process as the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions,” says Dr. Jay Lombard, Genomind Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer. “We are proud that Mindful DNA will now be able to help Standard Process healthcare practitioners and patients identify variations in gene networks that influence health and wellness.”
