Nutrigenomics is the study between nutrition and a person’s genes. Nutritional genomics examines and analyses how nutrients impact our genes, how our genes impact reactions to specific nutrients, and why our bodies may be struggling with detoxing or metabolizing.
This is the epitome of health and wellness uniquely tailored to you.
Your DNA is the building block and controller of your cells and all the processes it’s responsible for. By knowing your DNA composition, you have the potential to limit or prevent inherited health problems. Genetic Testing will help you to understand the quality of your metabolism, inflammatory processes and detox phases; while any deficiencies could be addressed through diet and/or supplementation. Genetic Testing truly motivates you to live a lifestyle in support of your health and overall wellbeing.
