Nutrigenomix
Optimize Your Genetic Potential!

The Nutrigenomix test analyzes genetic variants that have been researched with findings from high quality peer reviewed journals. The test currently analyzes 70  genetic markers (with more markers continually being discovered) that can influence how we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume. Personalized recommendations can then be developed based on your  unique genetic profile.

Research shows that giving people information about their genes motivates them  to adopt healthier eating habits. As a Nutritionist, I can use the information from the Nutrigenomix reports combined with my knowledge of my client’s current dietary and fitness habits, preferences or restrictions. I will then help them to generate SMART goals to optimize their nutrition status with the ultimate goal of improving their overall health and wellness outcomes.

What are the differences in the tests?
While all tests report the same genetic markers, each test is intended for a different clientele.

Examples of differences in the tests:

Caffeine is a great example. Although the CYP1A2 gene is analyzed for caffeine metabolism in all tests, each report focuses on different information and provides different recommendations depending on your client’s goals. The Health and Plant-Based reports focus on risk of heart attack and hypertension based on caffeine consumption and your client’s genotype. The Sport report highlights the effects of caffeine on endurance performance, while still identifying potential risks to heart health. The Fertility report focuses on caffeine’s effects on time to establish pregnancy, as well as pregnancy-associated health conditions such as pre-diabetes and hypertension. Your recommendations would essentially be the same regardless of which report you ordered, but the implications would depend on your client’s interest. So, if you are a ‘slow’ metabolizer of caffeine, you would be advised to limit your caffeine intake to no more than 200 mg/day to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease (e.g. Health or Plant-Based report) or to optimize your performance (e.g. Sport Report). The exception would be the Fertility report, where the recommendation is to limit your intake to no more than 100 mg/day based on the science linking caffeine to pregnancy outcomes.
