What are nutrition genomics?
Nutrition genomics is the relationship between your diet, nutrients, and gene expression. Advances in genetic testing and analysis have demonstrated not only how certain nutrients fuel your body but also how your body responds to specific nutrients at a genetic or cellular level.
This information, known as bioinformatics, can provide valuable insight into your health. Combined with metabolic genomics data, our physician can create nutrient-based treatment plans to enhance your health, reduce disease, and prevent illness.
How does nutrition genomics work?
The food you consume fuels your body, providing energy and other nutrients your body needs for optimal function as well as gene expression. As more detailed research into nutrition genomics emerges, physicians learn more about this relationship.
For example, research has found an association between a high glycemic index diet and gene variations that contribute to insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes.
Atlantic W.I.S.H. Clinic uses nutrition and metabolic genomics to understand your body’s precise biological needs. Our physician takes blood samples to analyze your genetic makeup.
Then, using your bioinformatics, we create a personalized diet and supplement regimen to deliver the optimal intake of nutrients to maintain your health from the cellular level up.
What are the benefits of nutrition genomics?
Nutrition genomics allows our physician to create a plan that optimizes your health and fights disease through nutrition. It can reduce or even eliminate your reliance on pharmaceutical treatments, and avoid the related side effects.
Enhanced nutrition offers the potential for more significant health gains than adhering to standard nutritional guidelines. You can maintain your weight and health by simply following a diet designed to address your genetic needs.
While maintaining a healthy weight, exercising daily, and consuming a nutrient-dense diet can help you stay healthy, nutrition genomics takes a customized diet to the next level. Your genetic makeup is unique, and this advanced health care technology allows for tailored dietary advice.
You’ve heard that you are what you eat. Nutrition genomics demonstrates how your diet affects your health and body function at a cellular level.
