Understand how your body responds to foods and nutrients
Do you have genetic variations that increase your need for specific nutrients yet make you more sensitive to others?
Our nutrigenomics products provide answers to questions like this and more by analyzing more than 50 DNA markers, and then giving specific recommendations based on the results.
Nutrigenomics is the study of nutrition and genetics which helps us discover the different ways that individuals respond to food based on their genetic make-up. While all humans are genetically very similar, we all have slight differences in our genetic profile which set us apart from other people. These tiny variations influence the effect that nutrients have on our bodies and how we metabolize the food that we eat.
Personalized nutrition hinges on this two-way relationship between our food and our genes. On the one hand, the foods we eat can affect the way our genes are expressed. On the other, our genes are able to influence how our bodies respond to these foods.
With the advances in nutrigenomics, tailored diets can be developed which complement a person’s unique genetic profile. Not only will this optimize the health of the individual, but it may also work on a larger scale to help prevent society-wide diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
myDNA analyzes genetic variations that can affect nutritional needs, sensitivity to certain nutrients, fitness traits and general well-being. After submitting a simple saliva sample, you receive a report with a detailed summary of your results.
An exclusive mobile app allows you to view your results anywhere, while also providing you access to actionable health recommendations and live chats with health coaches.
