Athletic Performance Enhancement: Testing Evaluation Recommendations

ToxPlus S.A. in collaboration with GENOMED is pleased to inform you on the creation of an original examination package Athletic Perfrormance Enhancement: Testing Evaluation Recommendations – GOLDFORCE PRO ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE PLUS I designed to optimize the performance of athletes and would like to propose its endorsement and use by the respective Organization.

Our scientific team (Medical Advisory Board), supervised by Professor and Academician Aristidis Tsatsakis, consists of:

(1) The Recearch Group on Ageing, Clinical Toxicology and Toxicogenomics of the Laboratory of Toxicology and Forensic Science, Medical School, University of Crete

(2) The Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics Research Group of the Department of Pharmacy, School of Health Sciences of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, headed by Associate Professor Nikolaos Drakoulis

(3) The Laboratory “Center for Biotic Medicine” of Moscow in colaboration with the Trace Element Institute for UNESCO supervised by Professor Anatoly V. Skalny

(4) Mr. Zoumbaneas Evangelos, Clinical Dietitian-Nutritionist, Director of the Center for Training & Management of Eating Disorders (KEADD)

(5) Mr. Konstantinos Dakoulas, Professor of Physical Education, (6) Dr. George Lazopoulos, Professor of Cardiac Surgery at the University of Crete, Mr. George Lazopoulos, (7) Mr. Leonidas Kastrinakis, Physiotherapist, (8) Dr. Panagiota Konstantopoulou, Microbiologist-Biopathologist and (9) Mr. Vassilios E. Katsilas, Clinical Dietitian-Nutritionist and Scientific Officer of the “Athlisis” program.


  • Genetic testing of 168 genes for the determination of the athlete’s genetic profile, non-invasively, with a buccal smear sample. It has been established that the abilities of each individual, especially in sports are strongly associated with the genetic profile. Awareness of the athlete’s genetic profile, both by the athlete and the coach, is of crucial importance on selecting the appropriate sport.
    The trainer gains useful insight into the genetic profile in order to instruct the athlete correctly and effectively, towards improving his/her performance and consequently his/her odds for distinction.
  • Measurement of telomeric ends from a buccal smear or whole blood sample, in order to determine the cellular aging of the athlete. Athletes exercise daily at moderate intensity, which is associated not only with a relatively longer telomere length, but also with a reduction in chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, compared to non-athletes, whereas unusually short telomeres have been detected in the skeletal muscle of athletes, associated with fatigue due to excessive exercise. Therefore, the determination of the telomeric length provides information to both the athlete and the accompanying training team, as to whether any injuries and the possible lack of appropriate medical-nutritional care have affected the athlete’s performance through time.
  • Detection and quantification of metals and trace elements in hair samples. This test provides direct information on the lack of all necessary metals and essential trace elements, whose adequacy and balance are the most important factors affecting the performance, endurance and the explosive reflexes of each athlete, which is almost impossible to diagnose with the classic blood tests.
  • Specialized Biochemical tests for athletes. Targeted Biochemical tests can provide the most comprehensive description of the “current” condition of each athlete at both biochemical and hormonal levels. Restoring biochemical and hormonal balance can help reduce the chances of injury due to the body’s reduced ability for daily recovery of the athlete’s cellular and muscle mass. The regulation of biochemical and hormonal variables through targeted nutritional and complementary treatment is the key to maximizing the athlete’s performance.

Based on the above the following will be provided:

  • Personalized coaching guidance
  • Personalized diet – nutrition
  • Precision Medicine Consultation
  • On line explanation of the results by specialized scientists

The GOLDFORCE PRO ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE PLUS I examinations package is offered to various organizations such as Athletic Clubs, Associations, Federations and private clients, athletes and seniors at contracted prices varying pending on the case.
