Poor health is becoming an epidemic – we must start to focus on prevention, rather than just clinical solutions which are costly and may not address an underlying health issue.
The focus on inner health over external appearance sits at the heart of preventive healthcare.
Through genetic science, Muhdo Health can help at every stage of life from pregnancy, infancy, adolescence, adulthood to old retirement.
The decision problem that Muhdo addresses lies within what leads a person to be absent from work and/ or having to make a claim on their private medical insurance. These include:
• Stress, depression and anxiety
• Ailments and non-critical illness
• Non-contact (i.e. avoidable) physical
Improve workplace safety, health and wellbeing
Improve employee morale and engagement
Improve productivity by reducing employee absences and raising job performance
Attract and retain employees
Employers aim to create a workforce health strategy that will:
• Improve productivity
• Focus on health and wellbeing
• Save money; and
• Attract and retain talent
Investing in personalised, technology-based healthcare solutions while fostering a culture of wellbeing will help set employers apart, enabling them to build a more engaged, productive and loyal workforce.
The science of genetics is helping us to understand what the small differences in your genetic makeup mean.
Research has shown that your genes affect how you respond to your surroundings and experiences. Tiny variations can affect how your muscles form and behave, how your body uses the major food groups and whether you are likely to lack certain vitamins or minerals due to poor absorption.
This is why genetic testing is becoming increasingly popular as a preventive healthcare solution. A genetic test is very easy to do. All that Muhdo requires is a saliva sample. Your whole genetic story will be in your sample. The sample is analysed by our laboratory and then experts in sports science, nutrigenomics and health, who understand all the current research, interpret the results for you.
When asked specifically about digital health solutions, more than three-quarters of senior decision makers surveyed believe solutions will have a positive impact on staff energy levels, and nearly six out of ten believe they will help them retain staff.
Nearly a third of HR decision makers consider themselves to be innovators when it comes to technology adoption, while another third classify themselves as early adopters.
Employers are increasingly recognising that wellbeing apps and tools can improve the experience, health and happiness of their workers.
Employers cited the following reasons for not investing in digital health.
• More important priorities
• Difficulty in calculating ROI
• Data security
• Complexity of administration
The Muhdo solution addresses the perceived issues employers face with digital health.
How much do you feel your company cares about the health and wellbeing of its employees generally? The below graph shows that over 70% care a great deal.
Two-thirds of workers reported being more confident in digital health and wellbeing solutions that are promoted by their employer.
Nearly two-thirds of workers say they are willing to share their personal health information if this will ensure that they receive the highest quality medical care. Workers can be clustered into four distinct segments based upon their attitudes towards health innovations and their likelihood of staying with an employer offering these solutions.
1. Sign me up (21%)
2. Impress me (16%)
3. Get me comfortable (29%)
4. Not for me (4%)
Muhdo can boast an array of extensive scientific research papers to back up our health, nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.

• Over 1,500 Genetic Research papers
• Over 600 Nutritional Research papers
• 80 Training, Strength & Conditioning papers
• 20 Epigenetics & Biological Age papers that are used in our epigenetics product, with an additional 2,992 published medical papers that outline the importance of biological age as an early indication to poor health
Muhdo integrates health and wellbeing at the organisational level. While at the personal level, Muhdo considers all the following risk factors that can lead to poor worker health:
Muhdo provides a fully interactive preventive and curative solution, available 24/7 with no requirement for internal management. We avoid the trap of a ‘one-off’ perk, so the worker is able to measure results and deliver outcomes in real time.
A genetic health profile addresses a range of personal risk factors that include excess weight, inactivity, issues associated with ageing, nutrition and emotions.
Our engaging genetic health insights provide motivation for reduced reliance on clinical interventions and medication, together with lessening the pressure of worker sickness absence and associated costs.
Make a positive difference to workers by enabling them to take control of their health and improve their wellbeing. Their genetic profile is completely personalised to them and they can process the results at their time and pace.
Generate an autonomous and motivated culture by empowering workers to be in control of their own health while also providing a platform for social engagement that workers can use to discuss, compare and even compete through.
Let the product work for your employees and let them address health issues before they arise, or rectify areas of concern with our On-Call Doctor feature. The Muhdo genetic profile helps individuals live younger for longer.
The data we provide is fully transparent and measurable, giving you a unique insight into your genetic health. Hyper-personalised genetic information answers the problem of intervention to promote prevention.
Management processes are simplified by incorporating the decision problem of health at an organisational level – allowing more efficient use of staff time.
Positive ROI is achievable when supported by Muhdo’s BI and MI to address business concerns on productivity improvement, lost work time, sourcing cover, sick pay, demotivated workforce and the cost of presenteeism.
Muhdo is a genomics company that offers DNA and epigenetic profiling. While you are born with a fixed genetic makeup which can be analysed using our simple DNA saliva test, we can also analyse your epigenetic gene expression over time through periodic saliva testing.
This enables us to calculate an extensive range of trackable areas including your biological age, hearing, memory, eyesight and inflammation.
Muhdo is proud to sponsor and assist The All Part Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Longevity. The APPG for Longevity was put together to address scientific, technological and socio-economic issues concerning Britain’s ageing demographic.
Living the healthiest life possible is at the core of what Muhdo is striving for through accurate, actionable and accessible genetic health analysis.
Muhdo is able to understand how your day-to-day diet affects your body at a cellular and genetic level through the science of nutrigenomics. We do this by combining your DNA profile, which stays the same over time, together with a process called epigenetics, which refers to the changes in your gene expression. This is impacted by changes in your lifestyle, diet and environment
By utilising your mobile phone to collect key lifestyle data and periodic saliva samples, we can measure your epigenetic gene expression. We can then both monitor and improve your inner health over time by providing you with hyper-personalised health, nutrition and lifestyle recommendations aligned to your genetic profile and your health goal.
Understanding your genetics can help improve your mental health enabling you to enhance your cognitive function, creativity, working memory and reading comprehension. Muhdo can also help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, illness and even prevent injury based on your genetic code.
At Muhdo we’re committed to giving you the most comprehensive DNA profile available with our accurate, state-of-the-art laboratories and science. We do this by analysing 1,000 snips (genetic variants) and providing you with over 300 reports tailored to your DNA. We don’t look at your ancestry as we believe that your future health is more important. Whatever your health objective is our interactive app will give you all the information you need right at your fingertips!
