('nutri-gen-oh-mics') The study of how individual genetic variation affects a person's response to nutrients and impacts the risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases.
This is a term you will be hearing of more and more over time. Advances in genetics have opened a whole area of science dedicated to isolating individual genes and genetic variations, and studying nutrients and other dietary factors that inflence the expression of your genes. Further, variations in your genes can impact the way your body utilises specific nutrients, eg having a higher requirement for folate, or can increase certain health risks eg caffeine and heart attacks. We can now use your DNA to design an even more individualised treatment plan.
Our comprehensive genetic test consists of a panel of 45 genetic markers that enable us to provide you with personalized nutrition advice and physical activity recommendations tailored to your DNA. This test can help you determine how you respond to key components of your diet as well as physical activity. The results of this test can impact weight loss & body composition, nutrient metabolism, heart health, food intolerances, and eating habits.
The test also provides you with information related to the relationship between your genes and athletic performance & injury risk.
Your test results are presented in a customized report, which includes dietary and physical activity recommendations based on your individual genetic profile.
