Genetic Testing: Nutrigenomics
Nutrigenomics is the science that studies the interaction between the nutrients we eat and our genes. Knowing more about your unique genetic makeup can help you find the optimal diet for your health, wellness, and even your fitness!
With a Nutrigenomix test, you can learn:
✔ What nutrients you should focus on in your diet to best meet your unique needs
✔ How to eat to reach your performance, weight loss, or body composition goals
✔ Information about your fitness strengths or areas to improve upon, as well as your risk for injury and tips to prevent or manage it
Here's a sample of some things tested!
Nutrigenomix is widely regarded as the global leader in genetic testing for personalized nutrition. We have developed an award-winning panel of genetic tests exclusively for use by healthcare professionals. The company was founded by leading researchers in the field of nutrigenomics and personalized nutrition, and our genetic tests were developed according to stringent standards of scientific evidence.
A simple DNA sample (saliva sample or cheek swab) is required to test for the genetic markers included in our reports. The sample will be collected by Natural Wellness Corner or can be collected at home and sent to the Nutrigenomix laboratory for analysis.
Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.
Armed with information that is specific to your genetic profile, your healthcare professional will be able to develop the best dietary plan to help you meet your nutrition and fitness goals. Adhering to those recommendations will enable you to optimize your nutritional status and prevent nutrition-related chronic diseases. The DNA-based recommendations provide greater precision for each individual than the general dietary guidelines.
