Have you ever wondered why one person does well on a plant-based diet, paleo diet or ketogenic diet, while another person feels horrible on the diet? The answer lies in nutrigenomic testing.
Nutrigenomics is the science of how dietary factors affect your genes. Nutrigenomic testing allows you to see protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, explaining why saturated fat may be metabolized well for one person, but cause high blood sugar, weight gain and inflammation in another. It shows you where you have a higher need for certain vitamins, minerals, and compounds, while also shedding light on toxin and drug sensitivities.
The reason that one diet cannot suit all of us and that population studies are continually contradictory with dietary advice is that we are all different. Your ancestors migration routes over thousands of years enable you to understand these differences and customize your diet. Genetics and biochemistry help us discover how we are different, and what we can do to potentially overcome disease susceptibilities through the understanding of epigenetics by applying it to our diet, lifestyle, and environment.
Nutrigenomic Testing and the Nutrition Genome Report
Nutrition Genome tests clinically relevant genes and determines your genotype for each gene. It does this by reading your DNA file from a saliva sample. Once these genotypes are determined, the software provides you research on how to epigenetically improve any gene variants, strengthen the “chinks” in your armor and lower the probability of disease.
