GeneLink, Margate, NJ, a family-centered DNA bank and hereditary genetic information service, has developed a patented process for identifying and storing an individual’s DNA. This allows consumers to receive a customized formulation for their vitamin and nutritional supplement intake. The new genetically profiled formulation will help to combat oxidative stress that causes disease and rapid aging. By swabbing the inside of one’s mouth and sending the collected sample to GeneLink’s laboratories, a person can benefit from a program of vitamin intake or nutritional supplementation that matches his or her personal genetic profile. GeneLink has formed a strategic partnership with the Vitaquest division of Garden State Nutritionals (GSN), West Caldwell, NJ. The two companies have partnered to create and market the new class of customized nutritional supplements. The new technology and associated product lines will be available to consumers in 2002 through GSN’s brand name distributors.
