Nutrigenomix Genetic Testing
Personalized Nutrition Recommendations Based On Your DNA
We offer our clients cutting-edge, in-office genetic testing. Developed by world-renowned researchers, this comprehensive test consists of 45 genetic markers that are used to compile your unique genetic profile.
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 test for 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.
Here’s how it works:
- Schedule an appointment to come in for your simple, in-office saliva sample.
- The lab receives your sample and your DNA is analyzed.
- In about 2 weeks, we receive a detailed booklet with your personalized results.
- We review the results and work with you to formulate an eating plan based on your unique genetic profile.
The cost of the test is $398 (not covered by insurance). Your visits with your dietitian nutritionist for your personalized nutrition plan may be covered by insurance.
