Nutrigenomix DNA Analysis

Genetic Testing

Have you ever wondered why some people seem prone to obesity when consuming a high saturated fat diet and others are less susceptible, even though they are the same gender of similar height, weight and activity level?  Or why some individuals do not experience as great an increase in blood pressure in response to excess sodium intake as others?  Do you wonder if a gluten free diet would be best for you?

Studies now show that differences in the body’s absorption, metabolism and use of nutrients are the result of a genetic variation.  An individual may be more susceptible to adverse health outcomes if intake of a particular nutrient is too low or too high.

With a simple saliva test, we assess genes associated with how your body responds to eight important dietary components:  Vitamin C, Folate, Whole Grains, Omega-3 Fat, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Caffeine, and Gluten.  You are unique in your response to the food, beverages and supplements that you consume.  By tailoring your nutrition intake to your genetic profile, the benefits of nutrition for optimal health can be maximized.

Nutrigenomics: The study of how individual genetic variation affects a person’s response to nutrients and impacts the risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases.
