GENETIC PROFILE TESTING
Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.
We offer three types of Nutrigenomix DNA tests all of which consist of a panel of 45 genetic markers related to several important aspects of your lifestyle including weight management and body composition, nutrient metabolism, eating habits, cardiometabolic health, food intolerances, and physical activity.

How is testing done?
A simple, non-invasive saliva sample is required to test the 45 genetic markers included in our reports. The sample will be taken by your Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Kelsey and sent the Nutrigenomix laboratory for analysis. Results take approximately 2-3 weeks for analysis.
