Eat For Your DNA
A diet-focused DNA test can give you insight into what foods you should be eating to support your genetic make up. The simple saliva test covers:
Diet Management: How your body burns fat, your sensitivity to carbohydrates, your cholesterol and blood sugar regulation, and your protein requirements to help determine your optimum diet.
Weight Response: Your body’s ability to control body mass index (BMI).
Food Tolerances: Your tolerances to alcohol, caffeine, salt, lactose, gluten and sugar cravings.
Food Taste and Preferences: Your preference for caffeine, carbohydrates, fats and protein. Your taste ability for bitter, salt, sweet tastes and smoking behaviour which can lead to over or under consumption.
Vitamins and Supplements: Your need for vitamins including vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B9 (folate), vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin E. Your need for Calcium, Iodine, Iron, Omega 3 and Omega 6 supplements to stay healthy.
Once ordered, your test will be mailed to you with instructions. Simply supply the saliva swab and mail it back in the self-addressed envelope. Your results will be emailed to you in the form of a 70pg report, and your Nutritionist will set up a 30 minute phone call with you to review your results and give dietary suggestions.
