So Then What Is Nutrigenomics?
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.
How is Nutrigenomix Testing Done?
Using a saliva sample, the Nutrigenomix Test helps us optimize your diet to your genes in order to reduce your risk of certain health conditions and diseases. Each gene tested is significantly involved in the way your body processes or metabolizes a certain nutrient or dietary component. With that information, we know which foods and nutrients your body needs more or lessof to prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
