There are countless diets to choose from and they all claim to be the best. However, we know that the same dietary regime doesn’t work for everyone – why is that?
The answer may lie in your genes.
Individual genetic variations can affect how people respond to the foods, beverages and supplements they consume. Until very recently, it was too costly to sequence an individual’s genome. However emerging technologies have brought the cost down and allowed us to develop a new field of research known as nutrigenomics.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how individual genetic variation affects a person’s response to nutrients and impacts the risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases.
We all have what are called single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), and these small variations help explain why some people can’t tolerate even a sip of coffee, while others could have a double espresso before bed and still fall asleep with no problem.
We are pleased to announce that Kinetic Patterns now offers the Nutrigenomix 45-gene personalized nutrient panel that answers these questions and many more:
The test is simple and non-invasive, only requiring a saliva sample. The report includes a full analysis of 45 genes related to weight management, nutrient metabolism, heart health, food intolerances, eating habits and physical activity.
Note: Have you done the 23andMe genetic test in the past? Dr. Tomah is able to analyze your genetic data to determine a personalized diet and nutrition protocol.
