How it works
List of Tests
Lipoprotein(a) or Lp(a) is particularly dangerous sub-type of atherogenic particle with an additional protein, apolipoprotein(a), attached. Higher levels of Lp(a) have been strongly linked to cardiovascular disease and heart valve disease, even when LDL-cholesterol (traditionally the “bad” cholesterol) is low.
Lp(a) levels are largely genetically determined (80-90%) and are elevated in about 20% of the population. As this is mainly controlled by genes, there is no need at this point for most people to do this test more than once.
Apolipoprotein B (Apo B)
ApoB is a protein that is found on all the cholesterol-carrying particles in your blood that are responsible for narrowing/blockage of blood vessels (AKA atherogenic). LDL particles are the most common type of these particles, others include VLDL, IDL and Lp(a).
ApoB testing measures the number of all atherogenic particles while LDL-cholesterol testing measures the amount of cholesterol inside only the LDL particles, which has been shown to be a more consistent predictor of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) Cholesterol
LDL-cholesterol tests measure the amount of cholesterol carried inside our LDL particles that transport cholesterol and fatty acids around our body. It is used in existing risk prediction guidelines for heart attack and stroke.
However, studies suggest that this reading should be interpreted together with Apolipoprotein B levels (particle number) to get a full picture of one’s risk of cardiovascular disease.
Triglycerides (TG) are the most common type of fat in our body, serving as the main store of excess energy. This test measures the amount of TG being transported around your body in the blood (not the amount in fat stores) within particles called lipoproteins. The ratio of triglycerides to HDL is a measure of risk for heart disease and metabolic disorders, and at very high levels TG can cause immediate problems like pancreatic damage.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol
High-density lipoproteins are smaller, denser lipoproteins that serve mainly to transport cholesterol back from the body to the liver for breakdown and removal.
HDL-cholesterol is commonly referred to us “good” cholesterol as studies have observed that individuals with higher levels of HDL have lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. However, having higher levels of HDL does not eliminate or negate the risk associated with high apolipoprotein B or LDL-cholesterol.
Total cholesterol represents the concentration of cholesterol in all cholesterol-carrying particles in our blood. This includes the cholesterol carried in both atherogenic and non-atherogenic particles. Too much cholesterol in the atherogenic particles can increase the risk of disease, but cholesterol itself is not inherently bad, and is an essential part of every cell in our body.
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP)
High sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) is a biomarker of inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is our body’s natural response to protect itself from injury, infection or harmful substances and is required in appropriate amounts for survival. While short term elevations can be normal, or even beneficial after intense exercise, chronically elevated inflammatory markers are associated with poor cardiovascular health and can be a sign of multiple diseases and ageing.

Gut Microbiome Test
Analyse the trillions of microorganisms in your gut, your gut microbiome, to better understand your gut health and how your diet, lifestyle and supplements may interact with the rest of your body
VO2max is a measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen your body is able to consume during exertion. This is an accurate measure of your cardiorespiratory fitness, evaluating the efficiency of your lungs, heart, circulation and muscle. This is performed on a treadmill or bike while connected to a machine that analyses the air you breathe in and out.
Resting Metabolic Rate Analysis
RMR testing is a significantly more accurate way of determining your daily energy / calorie expenditure. Understanding your metabolic rate is useful in determining your caloric needs and requirements to take control of your weight and body composition.
