Ever wonder why the weight loss program that helped your friend lose 10 pounds didn’t have the same effect on you? Do you think you are gluten sensitive or lactose intolerant but can’t bear to spend weeks and weeks removing and reintroducing foods? Are you frustrated when your vitamin and mineral blood test results come back on the low range even though you take supplements?
We all know that we are made up of our very own DNA that determines our hair color and height, but did you realize that it specifies how we react to nutrition too? Genetic differences can affect how we respond to the foods we eat and determine our individual nutritional needs.
“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”, says Nutrigenomix, the leading provider of the nutrigenomics testing, adds “Genetic variation results in multiple versions of genes, which can lead to differences in the amount of proteins produced and how efficiently proteins function.”
The test is given by a qualified health practitioner and uses a saliva sample that is properly stored and sent the a Nutrigenomix lab. After 2-4 week you and the health practitioner review the results of the 45-genotype test together and create a nutritional plan.
Below are a few of the things you could find:
Access to this level of testing hasn’t been possible until recently. Nutrigenomics gives a “blue print” to individual nutritional needs allowing us to eat according a specific meal plan that enhances our health, longevity and quality of life.
Prior to this we were just guessing…and now we know exactly what each of our bodies require. How great is that!
