DNA Testing for Nutrition

It’s widely accepted that good nutrition is the baseline for a healthy life. The nutrients absorbed from consumed food are what fuels the body’s processes. The body cannot function without them, making the interdependency with nutrition inherent. Everyone’s relationship with nutrition is different, and now, because of modern genetics, we know why. If you cannot absorb the nutrients from the foods you eat due to a genetic weakness your health may suffer. It may be a necessity to supplement your diet with the correct nutrition needed based upon your genetic results. It is a one time test due to reason that the genes we are analyzing are foundation genes for life. They do not change so further testing will never will needed.

Nutrigenomics: Your Answer to Personalized Nutrition

Nutrigenomics is the study between nutrition and a person’s genes. Nutritional genomics examines and analyzes how nutrients impact our genes, how our genes impact reactions to specific nutrients, and why our bodies may be struggling with detoxing or metabolizing.

One popular reason many have turned to nutrigenomics, and understanding their genetic weaknesses, is to optimize their nutrition, creating a path to better health. As a variety of products and advertisements have expressed, men and women are genetically different, even when consuming the same nutrients. GX Sciences takes that logic many steps further, not categorizing nutrition or health by gender or large studies, but by a patient’s genetic profile itself. Nutrigenomics can be applied to many health concerns, like recognizing high risk for certain diseases, or helping relieve chronic health issues. The results can be used to optimize your health in multiple aspects or alleviate the concerns someone may have with poor health or conditions that run in their family.

Genetic Testing with Actionable Findings

DNA testing for nutrition is simple with GX Sciences. Our nutrigenomic test retrieves a DNA sample through swabbing the inside of the patients’ cheek. No spitting into test tubes or blood samples required. Test results should be received within 10 business days. Many other genetic testing companies will provide patients with test results but no test analysis or recommendation. GX Sciences’ nutrigenomic report shares your results, descriptions of each key metabolic areas tested, analysis of your results, and dietary and supplementation recommendations based on your genetic results.

GX Sciences firmly believes in finding the source of a health issue and treating it, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
