Genetic Testing

Nutrigenomics is the study of how diet influences gene expression, and thus, health.

Nutrigenomics as the identification of genes that are involved in physiological responses to diet, and the genes in which small changes, called polymorphisms, may have significant nutritional consequences. Nutrigenetics is then defined as the study of these individual genetic variations or polymorphisms, their interaction with nutritional factors, and their association with health and disease. Others define nutrigenomics as the study of the functional interactions between food and the genome at the molecular, cellular, and organismic levels, and the ways in which individuals respond differently to diets depending on their genetic makeup.
