Cardiovascular

Function

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Biomarkers for cholesterol and triglycerides are indicators of the long-term risk for developing diseases such as heart attack and stroke. A healthy blood lipid profile is important for cardiovascular health, and reflect diet, exercise and various lifestyle choices.

Biomarkers tested by myFitness

  • LDL-Cholesterol
  • HDL-Cholesterol
  • t-Cholesterol
  • Triglyceride

LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is a particle that transports cholesterol in the blood, and cholesterol is needed for building cells. LDL-cholesterol is referred to as "bad" cholesterol since in excess it can build up in the walls of arteries and increase the risk of heart disease.

HDL (high-density lipoprotein) brings excess cholesterol in the blood and organs back to the liver, where it can be recycled. Good HDL-cholesterol levels reflect your healthy lifestyle choices in diet and fitness.

Cholesterol plays a vital role as a component of every cell in your body and a building block of many hormones. Normal cholesterol levels are important for energy levels, metabolism and heart and blood vessel health. "t" refers to total measured cholesterol, and high levels put you at risk of cardiovascular disease.

Your body stores much of its energy as triglyceride and breaks it down again for energy. Triglyceride levels show the state of your energy stores, and high levels are a good sign that you should change your calorie intake.

Bone & Muscle

Function

Your bone and muscle health is important for your strength, endurance and reduced risk of fracture or injury. Your hormones and diet are crucial for developing muscle strength and maintaining strong bones. Your bones and muscle require more care with age, since hormone production and nutrient absorption decreases in both men and women.

Biomarkers tested by myFitness

  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Vitamin D
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium

Testosterone is a hormone, essential for reproduction and growth. It regulates muscle mass and strength, and enhances your exercise performance and energy level. Poor testosterone levels can increase body fat, decrease bone density and impact libido.

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone that gets converted to testosterone and estrogen. Healthy DHEA levels help decrease inflammation, and improve insulin sensitivity, bone metabolism, muscle strength and body composition.

Vitamin D is vital for your bone health, and regulates your body's use of calcium and phosphate. Low vitamin D levels can impact your brain, pancreas, insulin production, muscles, cardiovascular system, energy levels and immune system.

Zinc is an essential mineral in the body. It strengthens the immune system, supports wound healing, healthy skin and hair and helps recovery after exercise. Zinc keeps your brain and nerves functioning normally, as is needed for testosterone production.

Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in your body. You need it for proper nerve and muscle function, to regulate blood pressure and heartbeat, and maintain bone strength. A magnesium deficiency can affect your hair and skin, and testosterone production.

Metabolism & Energy

Function

Metabolism refers to the collection of reactions that the cells in our bodies perform to stay alive. It is the way our bodies consume oxygen and nutrients. Sleep, diet and exercise affect your metabolism, and it is especially important for your energy levels and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Biomarkers tested by myFitness

  • TSH
  • Cortisol
  • Ferritin

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) controls the production of thyroid hormones, which are essential for your body's metabolism. Irregular thyroid activity can contribute to poor performance and sleep, low energy, difficulty with weight control, and bad mood. Your thyroid activity may also be the cause of problems with dry hair and skin.

Cortisol is known as the stress hormone, and it increases your available energy to deal with a stressful situation. However, a stressful lifestyle leads to persistently high cortisol levels which can cause burnout, poor sleep, weight gain or muscle loss.

Ferritin levels reflect your body's iron storage. Iron is important for many of your body's enyzmes, and especially for oxygen transport. Low iron may lead to low energy, weakness, reduced performance and concentration.

Mind

Function

A sharp brain requires adequate nutrition, for optimal cognitive performance and improved mood. Nutrient deficiency increases the risk of neurological conditions. The elderly are more sensitive to nutrient deficiency, and are at higher risk to these conditions.

Biomarkers tested by myFitness

  • Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 (or cobalamin) is naturally found in animal products and is essential for your metabolism. Optimal vitamin B12 is important for a healthy nervous system and a deficiency could lead to apathy, depression and poor cognitive performance.

Inflammation

Function

Inflammation is your immune system's response to irritation or infection. Inflammation occurs because our bodies are trying to set repair processes in motion so that promote healing. Inflammation is extremely wide-ranged and appears in a variety of forms. However, increased levels of inflammation over extended periods of time is linked to an increase in cardiovascular disease risk.

Biomarkers tested by myFitness

  • hs-CRP

C-reactive protein (CRP) is produced in the body in response to inflammation, i.e. tissue injury or infection. High-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) measures chronic, low-level inflammation and high levels are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease

Frequently asked questions

Who should take this test?
We recommend this test for:
- Professional and competitive athletes, who want to push their physical and mental limits
- Ambitious hobby athletes
- Health-conscious people who want to be healthy and happy over the long term
- Those who are tired of blindly taking supplements without being sure they're right for their body.
- Those for whom balanced, individually optimised nutrition is important
What symptoms does it address?
Common indicators of non-optimal levels and deficiencies of the blood values covered by this test include:
- inability to build muscle
- reduced sex drive
- difficulty increasing endurance
- increase in body fat percentage
- increased susceptibility to infection / weak immune system
- fatigue and disturbed sleep
- weak muscles and muscle cramping
- wounds slow to heal
- reduced performance
- lower motivation
- loss of muscle mass
- irregular heart rhythm
How does it work?
After your test kit arrives in the mail - around 2-3 days after completing your order - you'll take a few drops of blood from your fingertip and send us the sample in a postage pre-paid envelope. When our certified lab partner has completed the analysis - around 2 weeks - you'll receive an email with a link to a profile with your results. In your profile, you'll also find personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
What does it test?
We analyse your blood values and determine whether your values are in their optimal ranges. Having values in these optimal ranges is the key to reaching peak health and performance. If a value is not optimal, we provide concrete nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to get you where your body needs to be.
What kind of results and recommendations will I get?
Our science team - consisting of molecular biologists, nutrition scientists, and doctors - maintains world-class algorithms for nutrition and lifestyle recommendations based on your blood values. Our recommendation engine delivers you the specific recommendations needed to improve your blood values and, more importantly, your health.
Why should healthy people do a blood test?
Blood values are not only important for early detection and prevention of risk factors and health problems. They can also show unexpected and less obvious deficiencies affecting performance and quality of daily life. The human body changes as it ages - therefore regular testing of blood values is strongly recommended.
Why should I pay for a blood test if I can get one for free from the doctor?
Lykon is not a replacement for a visit to the doctor. The blood tests done by your doctor are an absolute necessity for acute problems. However, besides the clinical blood values analysed by your doctor, there are a multitude of other parameters which are crucial for your health but not tested by your doctor. For example, Lykon tests the concentration of vitamins, mineral levels, and amino and fatty acids in your blood. Our recommendations - developed by our health experts - can never take the place of a doctor's advice, but can help you improve for instance your vitamin levels. In addition, the doctor compares your blood values with norm values for the population as a whole. As much of the population suffers from various deficiencies, much of the prescriptive power of these tests is lost. Lykon works with medical studies to define the optimal values for you, to help you achieve your maximum. Blood tests with this scope are not offered free of charge by your doctor - of course, there are tests for a more limited range of blood values which are not supported by public health insurance, but are nonetheless available from your doctor.
