If You Have Questions About Nutrigenomic Testing, The Answers May Lie in Your Genes
Nutrigenomic testing aims to identify an individual’s specifically unique protein variations. This unique genetic component is involved in how you process nutrients, how enzymes are converted within your body, and how your cell signaling pathways operate.
At the EndoSlim Clinic of Atlantic Gastroenterology, Brooklyn, New York, once you undergo nutrigenomic testing and these variations have been identified, a complete and comprehensive report will be created that is personal to you and will contain customized recommendations for supporting and optimizing your unique physiology. This testing is a highly valuable tool in our personalized approach to your health and wellness.
With Nutrigenomix testing, we can develop personalized nutrient recommendations for your health and wellness. Using Nutrigenomics, there are five cornerstones to achieving optimal health. These include:
- Nutrient Metabolism
- Weight Management
- Cardiometabolic Health
- Eating Habits
- Physical Activity
- Food Intolerances
Knowing your genes is key to achieving optimum health. With testing, we can determine the specific variations in your genes and how they will respond to the foods, drinks, and supplements you consume. We can eliminate those things that are harming your health and recommend foods, drinks, and supplements that will have you reaching optimum health levels.
Common Questions About Nutrigenomics
If you are still unsure about nutrigenomics, here are some common questions our patients ask us that we hope will help you.
This new scientific discipline studies the relationship between nutrition, health, and genes. You’ve known people who react differently to certain foods than you do. For instance, lactose intolerant people will face stomach discomfort after consuming some dairy products. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how one’s specific genes affect the food, drink, and supplements metabolism.
Nutrigenomix is a private company providing comprehensive genomic information that allows for personalized nutrition plans. When you are armed with information regarding your specific genetic profile, we can develop a dietary plan to meet your nutrition and fitness goals.
Once we have taken your DNA sample and sent it to the lab, it will take approximately two weeks for us to receive the analysis and recommendations specific to you.
