The Science of Nutrigenomics
Nutrigenomics is the study of the relationship between nutrition and health and how it impacts gene expression. It incorporates a personal perspective of your unique DNA profile and impact on overall health. Our genes are what make each of us unique; they serve as the foundation of why and how we look, feel, and respond to foods and activities differently. Each of us have approximately 25,000 genes and they can exist in various forms.
Do you often wonder why someone can eat dairy products and feel energized while others may feel bloated and or gassy? Why can some people drink caffeinated beverages at bedtime and be able to go right to sleep while others are staring at the ceiling for hours? Why do some people absorb certain vitamins and minerals much better than others? Why is it so hard to find the best foods for you?
We work with Nutrigenomix, a genetic testing company developed by world-renowned researchers based on award winning technology. Nutrigenomix testing is available exclusively for authorized healthcare providers. The Nutritgenomix test is a saliva analysis that analyzes 70 of your specific genetic markers, to determine how your genes impact your diet - how your DNA reacts to various foods. Our MARSAL Patient Care & Wellness Nutrition Team provides you with a full analysis of your report, noting the best choices suited to your DNA profile.
The initial test, the 70-gene Health Report, designed to improve general health and wellness through personalized nutrition and fitness recommendations, covers the following categories:
In addition to the 70 Gene Health Report, we offer more specialized assessments including:
We also offer the add-on option of the Nutrigenomix Skin Health test which assesses your skin health. This test helps determine how genes can influence the skin’s ability to combat signs of aging, as well as markers that affect eating habits and how the body metabolizes nutrients that support skin health. (Please note, an additional fee will be charged to accommodate the time necessary to review the skin test).
Your Nutrigenomix test results will help our MARSAL Nutrition Team design a food plan customized to your genetic profile. Your personalized report could help to decrease your risk of developing chronic disease, make it easier to maintain a healthier lifestyle, and optimize your health.
