Nutrition Genome Testing for Optimize Health
Nutrition is the most important aspect of our health. Every chronic disease, cancer and many symptoms are influenced by our nutrition. As research continues to advance, we have learned which foods to eat and which ones to avoid. Most of us know what a healthy diet looks like but what if we could take that one step further and tailor our diet based on our genetic needs.
A Genetic Nutrition Test is a DNA test that provides detailed information on nutrient requirements specific to you. Nutrigenomics is the study of how foods interact with your genes. We all absorb, metabolize and transport nutrients differently based on our genetic make-up.
Epigenetics is the study of a chemical tag on the exterior of the genome that controls the way genes are expressed. Things like stress, diet, sleep, environment, exercise, and relationships can change the expression of our genes without changing the gene sequence. Making changes to these can have a profound effect on optimizing gene function, essentially turning a weakness into a strength.
DNA is a molecule that carries genetic material. It is made up of two linked strands known as a double helix connected by nitrogen bases. When the base pairs change from the normal wild type it is known as a SNP or genetic variant. Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNPs) are inherited from our ancestors over thousands of years and are the main reason for genetic variation in nutrition requirements. Studies show that certain genes and their variants are influenced by nutrients from the diet.
The Genetic Nutrition Report gives you is an individual blueprint to help you narrow down dietary priorities, supplementation and mark exactly where epigenetic improvements need to be made to thrive in your current environment and lifestyle. If you are cancering we can use the information provided in the blueprint to customize your cancer therapy. Each report provides detailed information on macro and micronutrient requirements, toxin sensitivity, mental health and cognitive performance, immune support, DNA protection and repair, methylation, hormone support, cardiovascular health, and athletic performance.
