Our scientific approach is based on 3 key principles.The Science Behind 3X4 (1:53)
Our bodies are complex. 3X4 looks at how our genes work together in cellular pathways and functional systems to control processes such as inflammation, metabolism and detoxification.
Traditionally, we have spent far too much time focusing on and trying to fix symptoms. At 3X4, we want to change this by understanding what’s happening at a deep cellular level so we can prevent, delay or reverse disease.
We believe that health is not a static condition, but a daily choice. Using our Blueprint and the guidance of an expert practitioner you can gain a deeper understanding of your body and the daily choices you need to make.
We ensure that the highest standards are maintained when processing your DNA. Our lab is ISO 17025:2005 and ISO 15189:2012 accredited, ensuring that your DNA is managed under rigorous control throughout the whole process.
From the time your sample is collected your DNA and data is kept securely. All of your genetic data is stored in our secure Amazon Web cloud environment. We ensure we meet the exacting requirements of POPI, GDPR and HIPAA.
The Scientist behind 3X4
In her role as Chief Science Officer, Dr Yael Joffe brings over 20 years of experience in nutrition, genetics, sound research, clinical practice and scientific integrity to 3X4.
In the rapidly-evolving discipline of nutrigenomics, Yael is globally acknowledged as a leading expert in the field. She is a highly sought-after speaker, has co-authored two books, ‘It’s Not Just Your Genes’ and ‘Genes To Plate’, and has been published in multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Yael is at the forefront of nutrigenomic education and has helped develop and supervise nutrigenomics courses around the world, including her own Manuka courses, which have trained hundreds of healthcare practitioners globally.
She is currently an Adjunct Professor, teaching Nutrigenomics at Rutgers University and MUIH.
