Nutrigenomics: unlocking the secret to the pefect diet and exercise regime for you!

Imagine if there was a perfect diet, just for you? Well there is. By using information hidden in your DNA you can eat and exercise according to your genes, and hopefully avoid weight gain, illness and underperformance. Nutrigenomics can give you a personalised insight into your health and fitness potential.

What is Nutrigenomics?

An emerging science where your DNA results are used to tailor your diet and lifestyle so that you can maximise your health and fitness, according to your own genetic potential

What areas of my health are explored?

  • Your optimal diet type
  • Your sensitivity to carbohydrates and fat
  • Your detoxification ability
  • Your anti-oxidant requirements
  • Your personal Vitamin and Micronutrient needs
  • Your sensitivity to salt, caffeine and alcohol
  • Your propensity to be lactose intolerant
  • Your predisposition to Coeliac Disease
  • Whether your body is best suited to power or endurance exercise
  • Your aerobic potential
  • Your post exercise recovery ability
  • Your injury risk

How can I use the information?

Once you are aware of your own personal genetic variations you are in a much better position to know which dietary approach is best suited to you as an individual. You will know whether a low carb or a low fat or a Meditteranean diet is going to suit you best. You will find out if variations in your genes mean that you are caffeine or salt sensitive. Whether you have the “hungry gene” or the “thrifty gene”, and with my guidance how you can tailor your diet to make sure that these unhelpful genetic variations don’t cause unwanted weight gain.

The test also gives you incredibly useful information about what kind of exercise is good for you as an individual – should you be focussing on cardiovascular work outs, or would your body respond better to strength focussed exercises such as weight training?

What do clients have to say about the benefits of Nutrigenomics testing?

"I feel more energised and awake, hence I’m being more productive. You identified through Nutrigenomic testing the deficiencies in my health and advised specific diet and supplements required for my optimal health. The fog in my head has gone and I’m motivated and mindful about good nutrition and exercise knowing I can return to you for future checks and updates. I feel safe in your hands – your knowledge on nutrition is exceptional. Thank you!”  Deborah, Ealing

Does the test hurt?

No – not at all. All it requires is for you to simply swab the inside of your mouth for 60 seconds.

What do I get in terms of results?

The test results are very comprehensive. You will receive a 40 page actionable report explaining the impact on your Nutrition and Fitness potential of 55 of your genes. We will also condense this information into a two page document so that you can start implementing your results immediately.
