Nutrigenomic Testing and Analysis
Nutrigenomic testing is a state-of-the-art, innovative technology aimed at bridging the gap between modern genetics and nutrition, and Genomix Nutrition is excited to be at the forefront of nutrigenomic testing providers. Genomix Nutrition began its nutrigenomic DNA testing service in order to provide medical professionals with the tools to safely recommend nutritional supplements to their patients. Our genomic testing and analysis allows for data-driven, personalized nutritional recommendations for every patient. Armed with information, our clients’ patients are better-equipped to achieve their nutrition goals.
What is Nutrigenomics?
Nutrigenomic (NGx) testing is the practice of utilizing genetic markers to determine a patient’s unique metabolic needs. Many people take supplements and vitamins in hopes of improving their nutrition. However, most don’t have specific knowledge or a scientific basis for their nutritional needs, and therefore end up wasting money on supplements with little to no benefit. Personalized genetic testing solves this problem by providing patients with a targeted, concrete, evidence-based account of their specific nutritional needs. Nutrigenomic services are totally safe and completely non-invasive, requiring only a cheek swab for a functional sample. At Genomix Nutrition, we test for genetic variants (i.e. polymorphisms or SNPs) in critical metabolic pathways that affect a patient’s dietary needs. With our comprehensive, personalized report, providers are empowered to advise their patients on the best course of action for their dietary regimen.
Areas of Our Nutrigenomic Testing
We can test either 26 or 55 genes for single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs. Through each area of testing, we evaluate each individual’s genetic strengths, weaknesses, and idiosyncrasies. Once we’ve tested these areas, we have what we need to suggest necessary nutritional supplements for each particular polymorphism.
Helping Doctors Help Patients
Genomix Nutrition was created to overcome any roadblocks a professional might encounter when offering nutritional guidance to their patients. We’ve worked hard to take the guesswork out of elaborate biochemical pathways. With nutrigenomic test analysis, Genomix Nutrition gives providers a scientific basis for nutrition and supplement recommendations. We help providers suggest the correct supplements to their patients in the correct amounts, and we can also supply providers with compressed formula options to increase patient compliance and cost-effectiveness. With our help, providers can be sure they’re supplying patients with the most targeted, up-to-date, and comprehensive nutritional information.
