Nutrition Genetic Testing

Eat according to your genes

When it comes to your diet, a one-size-fits all approach may not lead to optimal health.

The answer may be in your genes!

In 480 BC, Hippocrates noted that “positive health requires knowledge of man’s primary constitution”. This was just an ancient way of saying that we cannot achieve optimum health without knowing about our genes. We now know that specific variations in our genes can explain how we will respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.
