Nutrigenomics

Optimize Your Eating According to Your Genes

Forget one-size-fits-all nutritional guidance.

Nutrigenomics uses genomic tools and genetic information to address issues important to nutrition and health. The main goal of nutrigenomics is to prevent chronic disease by examining how the interaction between genes and diet can positively influence human health. The protein products of our genes (enzymes, transporters, receptors, hormones etc.) interact with components of the food we eat to influence our nutritional status. Genetic variation results in multiple versions of genes, which can lead to differences in the amount of proteins produced and how efficiently proteins function. Genetic differences can affect how we respond to the foods we eat, giving each of us our own specific nutritional needs.


Benefits of Nutrigenomics

  • Motivation: research shows that providing people with information about their genes motivates them to incorporate more healthful dietary habits.

  • Personalized Recommendations: a genetics test is an additional tool to help you develop a personalized nutritional plan to better optimize your nutritional status and focus on preventing diseases that you may be at risk for. The recommendations can help:

    • Improve body composition

    • Identify potential food intolerance

    • Help determine your individual nutrient requirements


Information You Receive

  • Personalized report

  • 30-minute consult
