Nutrition Genome Testing
A Personalized Approach To Optimize Your Health And Life Span
Environmental Effects on DNA Nutrition
We know that a patient’s diet and environment can have an effect on their genes. A lack of certain nutrients has the potential to change expression from a “good” to a “bad” gene. Nutrigenomics is the study of how foods interact with your genes and explains the individual genetic differences that can affect your need for dietary vitamins, minerals, and compounds. Everyone absorbs, metabolizes, and transports chemicals differently based on their genetic makeup; nutrigenomics, specifically the Nutrition Genome test, unlocks this personal blueprint.
Nutrigenomics is one of the most exciting, innovative, and cutting-edge fields in nutrition, genetics, and modern medicine.
The Nutrition Genome home test kit features highly-detailed DNA analysis to guide you through personalized diet and lifestyle insights for more vibrant health.
What is Nutrigenomics?
Every person’s genetic makeup affects how chemicals are absorbed, metabolized, and transported; nutrigenomics reveals this individual blueprint, so you can make smarter, healthier choices.
Nutrigenomics looks at the way foods interact with your genes. It also sheds light on a person’s vitamin, mineral, and chemical needs based on his or her unique biomarkers.
The Nutrition Genome Test analyzes the genes that matter, with results that stand up to rigorous peer-reviewed research and clinical testing.
How does DNA Nutrition testing work?
The Nutrition Genome testing begins with a simple saliva sample collected at home or the clinic. The sample is sent to the Nutrition Genome lab and your DNA is extracted. Over 100 genes are genotyped at the Nutrition Genome CLIA and CAP certified lab. Your sample will undergo three stages of quality assurance. Each sample is run on parallel arrays including Next Generation Sequencing technology for extremely accurate results. Once qualified, your results will be organized and a customized report will be emailed to you and your provider.
What is included in the Nutrition Genome Report?
The DNA analysis focuses on 8 health categories:
- Macronutrient Metabolism,
- Dna Protection & Repair
- Hormone Health
- Immune Support
- Methylation, Mental Health
- Cardiovascular Health & Athletic Performance
The testing allows us to determine where your vitamin and mineral requirements may be higher, which foods, drinks, drugs and toxins you may be most sensitive to, and how this applies to your family history and current blood work. The report includes a customized food list and in-depth research into the root causes of health issues based on your personal genetic and biochemical makeup. We will make recommendations to optimize your epigenetics, “good” gene expression. The report will also include over 1,000 peer-reviewed sources as the foundation of the evidence-based approach of nutrigenomics.
