Nutrigenomics uses a technology which studies how your particular genes affects your response to nutrients (in foods, beverages and supplements) and how they impact your risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases.
The main goal is to prevent chronic disease by learning how the interaction of your genes and diet can positively influence your health. Have you ever wondered that people in the same family, who eat the same food and have similar lifestyle habits eventually one person ends up with a chronic disease like cancer, or heart disease or diabetes? We all have different genes, which make us unique, and these genes also determine how our food will be used in the body and their effects on you.
For example, some people have a variant of a gene which increases their risk of heart disease if they drink more that 2 cups of coffee per day, while other people will have health benefits from drinking it. This test can help you learn these things about your own genes. This gene tests 45 gene markers and provide personalized recommendations to nutrients that affect:
It is quick, simple and non-invasive. Reports will be ready within 2 – 4 weeks.
All recommendations are based on more than 10 years of rigorous scientific evidence and are backed by the distinguished Science Advisory Board. This test is only available through Registered Dietitians, because they are the most trusted source of evidence-based food and nutrition information.
