The Gene Nutrition Report profiles genes that have been shown to influence nutritional traits, like diet and weight management, micronutrient requirements, food intolerances, and several other attributes relevant to nutritional well-being.
Genetics and Nutrition
The relationship between your genes and your diet is a two-way street. What you eat affects your gene expression, and the gene variants you carry affect how you process the nutrients in your diet. Our genes play a role in how the nutrients in the food are broken down, absorbed, metabolized, and excreted. Analyzing these genes could answer questions like why some people eat a lot and not put on weight, why certain people can’t consume dairy without experiencing gastrointestinal troubles, and why some people experience caffeine jitters after just one cup of coffee.
The Gene Nutrition Report
The report analyzes various nutritional aspects like your preferences for fatty, sweet, and bitter foods, weight loss and weight gain tendencies on the consumption of various macronutrients, genetic risk for vitamin deficiencies, micronutrient requirements, optimal caffeine intake, and food sensitivities.
The Key Takeaways section of the report highlights the important outcomes of your report, along with the recommended macro breakup according to your genetic makeup.
The Summary Table in the report indicates your outcome for each trait.
Along with your outcome, the details of the genes analyzed for each trait are also provided. The report comes with personalized recommendations based on your results. These recommendations are to be followed only after consulting with your medical practitioner. You can click on “Learn More” for more information on each trait.
