    When it comes to nutrition, a one-size-fits-all approach really doesn’t fit all. Each of us responds differently to foods, carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, dietary habits and exercise. Now you can find out what works best for you based on your genes, not food trends.

    Nutrigenomix testing helps your registered dietitian skip the early trial-and-error process and zero in on the best approach for you, based on your DNA.

    Personalised nutrition to optimise your health

    Now you can eat according to your genes, with personalised nutrition through an exciting service called Nutrigenomix. A Nutrigenomix test analyses your DNA for genetic variants that affect your response to the foods and beverages you consume.

    Some people respond differently than others to certain foods. If you’re lactose intolerant, for example, you’ll experience gastrointestinal discomfort from consuming dairy products, while others can consume all the dairy they want with no problems. DNA-based recommendations can provide greater individual precision than the general dietary guidelines. With Nutrigenomix testing, your dietitian will be able to develop the best dietary plan to help you meet your nutrition and fitness goals.

    Lifestyle choices have a big impact on health risks

    Instead of falling for the next celebrity diet, ever-changing fads or the latest superfood, you can make meaningful changes with dietary advice tailored to your individual genetic profile. Knowing your key health risk factors — based on your genes — can help you focus on the changes that will have the most impact.

    You’ll eat smarter when you know what works for your genetic makeup, while avoiding trends and advice that don’t work for you.


    How does Nutrigenomix work?

    Our registered dietitian will take a painless sample of your saliva, and we’ll test 70 different genetic markers to get a clear picture of your unique makeup. Once the results are back from the lab, our registered dietitian will contact you for a follow-up session to review the results. You’ll receive a customised nutrition plan based on clear, personalised, evidence-based dietary advice. The entire process usually takes between 2–4 weeks.

    Your Nutrigenomix results will always be a relevant investment in your health. As new discoveries in Nutrigenomix are made, additional information becomes available without the need for retesting.

    You’ll be able to get practical recommendations focused on:

    • Best advice for weight management
    • Cardiometabolic health
    • Chronic disease risk
    • Nutrient metabolism
    • Food intolerances
    • Physical activity
    • Eating habits
    • Injury risk

    • Metabolism
    • Mental focus
    • Eating habits
    • Pain tolerance

    • Body composition
    • Nutrient requirements
    • Exercise performance

    What Nutrigenomix can help you discover

    Knowing your risk factors for chronic disease, including heart disease and diabetes, can help tailor an effective prevention plan. You’ve probably heard that you should limit saturated fat and salt and include Omega-3 fats for a heart-healthy diet. Nutrigenomix adjusts advice to your genetic tolerances and looks at added factors, from caffeine to whole grain intake.

    Frequently asked questions

    Our registered dietitian will perform this simple genetic test to determine the best foods for your body. You’re asked not to eat or drink anything (water is allowed) for 1 hour before your test. The dietitian will then take a simple saliva swab from multiple areas inside your mouth. The sample will be sent off to the Nutrigenomix lab to test 70 genetic markers, which will produce the report regarding your nutritional needs.
