Nutrition DNA Test

Our nutrition plays a key role in our health. Assessment of a person's nutrition is not complete without taking into account the genetic factor. Variations in our genes influence the way our body absorbs foods and minerals, and can create certain deficiencies in our bodies, that can lead to illnesses.

Better understanding of the linkage between our genes, environment and nutritional intake can clarify certain deficiencies and sensitivities. By gaining insight into your genetic nutritional needs, you can make better diet and nutrition choices that can reduce certain risks or prevent deficiencies from occurring.

    Vitamin B9  - (MTHFR)
    Folic Acid plays critical role in fetal health during pregnancy. In addition, low folate levels can increase risk of heart attacks.

    Vitamin B12 - (MS4A3, FUT6, PRELID2 , CLYBL)
    Cobalamin plays a critical role in the pathways of the body that produce cellular energy. It is needed for DNA synthesis, proper red blood cell formation and for normal nervous system function.

    Vitamin C - (GSTT1)
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that acts as a powerful antioxidant. It is involved in the synthesis of carnitine, collagen, recycling other antioxidants, facilitating iron absorption and the conversion of cholesterol.

    Vitamin D - (CYP2R1, DHCR7/NADSYN1, VDR , GC)
    Vitamin D is crucial for calcium absorption in our bodies, maintaining bone health and growth. Other roles include facilitating normal immune system function and cell growth.

    Vitamin E - (APOA5)
    Vitamin E has been examined for its possible role in preventing chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes and cancer through its anti-oxidant properties, and protection from free radicals. It's also known for its anti-inflammatory functions, and contribution to our immune system.

  • Minerals

    Salt sensitivity  - (ADD1, ACE, NPPA)
    People who are salt sensitive are more likely to have high blood pressure than those who are not.

    Calcium - (VDR, GC, CYP2R1, NADSYN1/DHCR7)
    Calcium is crucial in growing new bone and maintaining strength. Calcium is also required to maintain our heart rhythm, muscle function and more.

    Iron - (HFE, TMPRSS6)
    Iron is a mineral that helps transport oxygen throughout our body. Do you absorb enough Iron, or might you be getting too much. Too much Iron can lead to toxic effects, while too little weakens the body.
