If you're intrigued by DNA nutrition testing and want to see which foods may help you reach your performance peak, these three labs can get you started.

» Like Sciona, Global DNA Solutions looks at 19 genes in its analysis. Included in the $695 price is a two-hour phone consultation with a staff nutritionist, followed by regular checkups over the phone to see how you're progressing. 866-810-3809

» Great Smokies Diagnostic Lab conducts more than 125 different medical tests, including five for genomics. They require a licensed nutritionist, chiropractor, or doctor to order the test for you. Cost varies with the practitioner. 800-522-4762,
