Nutrigenomics

The Ultimate Personalised Approach For Total Wellbeing

Take the guess work out of finding foods that work right just for you. One test, 45 genetic markers. All it requires is a simple saliva sample.

A new scientific discipline that uses modern gene technology to identify the relationship between genes and nutrients linked to physical and mental health traits.

From a simple saliva test, your DNA is analysed for common genetic variants that determine your specific response to nutrients identifying the foods you need to be consuming for optimum health and wellbeing.

The test does not predict or diagnose disease however does provide confirmation of efficiencies and inefficiencies in nutrient utilisation, specific to your genetic profile. Armed with this information, targeted dietary advice can be tailored for.

By having the test done you will find out some useful insights into your body like:

  • How effectively your body metabolises caffeine
  • What types of foods will help you burn fat to get lean
  • If a higher protein or carbohydrate diet will work best for you and your goals
  • How effectively your body processes gluten (not diagnosis of coeliac disease)
  • How effectively your body processes dairy foods
  • What vitamins and minerals your body is less effective at absorbing
  • If your body is suited more for endurance or power events
  • Whether you have a high injury risk

And so much more!

You will then be booked in for a follow up appointment a few weeks later. This will be a 60 minute appointment. During this appointment Jenn will talk you through in detail the specific results of your report (it’s about 25-30 pages long!).
