Nutrigenetics is an interdisciplinary science which realizes a holistic concept of a healthy organism. It analyses relations between diet, environmental changes, and genetic predispositions towards the development of diseases. In recent years, we have registered an increase in diseases related to diet, such as cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, tumors of the digestive tract, iron deficiency anemia, or inflammatory diseases. Nutrigenetics provides us with tools that allow us to learn about complicated interactions between nutrients in our diet, genetic polymorphisms, and the system.
Nutrigenetics enables us to create an individual metabolic profile, and thanks to that, we can do things such designing a personalized diet that reduces a risk of disorders and improves health of individual people.
The results presented in this part of the report are especially interesting for people who want to know of genetic risks and prevent the development of chronic diseases related to the genotype and diet. It has significant influence on health, taking into consideration that our constitution is in 90% dependent on our lifestyles, which translates to health prophylactics.
Nutrigenetics is about the analysis of inter-individual and inter-social single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), whose presence determines nearly 90% of humans' genetic changeability. Clinical testing allow us to verify and determine the kind of influence genes' multiform has on the system's response towards bioactive nutrients.
The section contains information about lipoproteins, which are responsible for transporting cholesterol throughout the system. An elevated level of so-called bad cholesterol can cause the development of coronary disease, which might lead to a heart attack and death. The genetic test result will indicate whether you have predisposition towards deviations of the LDL level from the norm.
HDL subset of lipoproteins is commonly called 'good cholesterol'. It functions as an antithrombotic, anticoagulant and antioxidant, and its low level puts you at higher risk of coronary disease. The result indicates whether the tested genotype is at a higher risk of having a low HDL level.
Triglycerides function as fuel for muscles, and their excess is stored in the fat. An elevated level increases the risk of coronary disease, and occurs in 30% of adults. This section will tell you whether you have an excess of triglycerides in your blood.
This section of the report refers to total cholesterol, which consists of HDL and LDL. Cholesterol is produced by the human organism and ingested with food. This section answers questions about the causes and consequences of total cholesterol level deviations, and whether the tested genotype indicates an elevated risk of metabolic syndrome.
Saturated fatty acids provide a human being with energy, help with vitamin assimilation, and build cell membranes. The system creates as many of them as it needs, so there is no need to ingest them. This chapter shows whether a genotype indicates the correct assimilation of saturated fats.
Monosaccharides and polysaccharides are responsible for the sweet taste of foods. The level of recognition of sweet taste, resulting from the sucrose in the food, is genetically conditioned. This section of the report contains information about the ability to recognize sweet taste in foods.
This section indicates whether we have an increased tendency towards snacking - scheduled or unscheduled consuming of small amounts of food between major meals. While the first kind is recommended for proper system function, frequent unscheduled snacks can lead to its deregulation.
This section of the report contains information about the most optimal diet for our genetic conditions. Specific diet types are characterized with different nutritional recommendations, and picking the most appropriate one will allow for the best weight loss effects.
Lactose is a carbohydrate present in milk and milk products. The enzyme which is responsible for digesting lactose is called lactase, and its deficiency in the system causes troublesome digestive problems when milk is ingested. The test result indicates whether the system is able to digest lactose.
Gluten is a protein present in grains. When it is not tolerated by the system, intestinal villi will atrophy, which in turn causes the impairment of absorption of nutrients and many unpleasant afflictions. The test result indicates whether you are genetically predisposed to gluten intolerance.
The customers will get a personalized diet prepared for the specific needs of their organisms, which will help them:
