What You'll Discover
You will receive nutrition-specific insights and personalized recommendations for different traits related to vitamin requirements, mineral requirements and nutrient sensitivities.
Your tendency to over-consume carbohydrates is determined by your genes.
Effect Of Diet On The Weight ControlNew
Dieting may work on some individuals, but it definitely does not work for everybody. Find out if dieting is helpful in managing your weight!
Effect Of Exercise On The Weight ControlNew
When it comes to weight loss, there are many types of exercises that can be done. However, it may not work on everyone. Find out if exercising is helpful in managing your weight.
Effect Of Protein On Weight ControlNew
Many weight loss gurus swear by high protein diets when it comes to weight loss. However it may not work for everyone. Find out if a high protein diet is helpful in managing your weight.
Fat storage refers to the accumulation of excess fats in the body’s fat cells. Your genetic predisposition can influence your body’s tendency to store fat.
Fat Taste PerceptionNew
Fat taste perception may influence dietary habits that have long-term health consequences. Having low sensitivity to fat may result in overconsumption of fats.
Low-Fat Diet EffectivenessNew
There are many diets that are said to be helpful in weight loss. However, it also depends on your genetic predisposition. Find out if your body is suitable for a low-fat diet.
Mediterranean Diet EffectivenessNew
There are many diets that are said to be helpful in weight loss. However, it also depends on your genetic predisposition. Find out if your body is suitable for a Mediterranean diet.
Metabolic Circadian RhythmNew
Your circadian rhythm determines your sleep-wake cycle and also influences the effectiveness of diet and lifestyle on managing your weight.
Metabolism is a series of chemical reactions by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy, which influences the amount of calories that your body burns.
Monounsaturated Fats Increased BenefitsNew
Find out if you are genetically predisposed to benefit more from consuming monounsaturated fats.
Some individuals may find it easier to gain weight than others, which gives them higher potential to be overweight. Find out if you are likely to become overweight.
Risk From Saturated FatsNew
Find out if you are genetically predisposed to have high or low health risks on saturated fats.
Individuals with satiety impairment may tend to overeat, which results in weight gain. Find out how your body performs in satiety regulation.
Your genetic predisposition in your prevalence in snacking.
The metabolism of carbohydrate is affected by your genes, and different versions of the gene have different abilities when it comes to metabolizing the molecule. Learn how your body is likely to be affected by carbohydrate intake.
Is your body inclined to increased sensitivity towards fat intake? Are you at increased risk of having higher body mass index (BMI) as a result of fat intake?

Genes are the bits of DNA that give our cells their marching orders. They make up who we are at our most basic cellular level, and the billions of cells we are born with play an incredibly important role in our health. Each gene is comprised of multiple combinations of four letters that make up your genetic code - Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Cytosine (C) and Guanine (G). Most genes contain the information required to make protein for your body to develop and function.
A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is a DNA sequence variation that occurs when a single nucleotide - A, T, C, or G in the genome differs between members of a species or paired chromosomes in an individual. These variants can be potential biological markers, helping researchers to locate genes associated with certain conditions and diseases.
Nutrigenomics looks at how genetics interact with the food that we eat, by identifying links between genetic variations present in your genes and specific nutrition traits. Genetic variations associated with decreased levels of an essential vitamin or mineral indicate risk for potential micronutrient deficiency. An individual with higher genetic-based risk for deficiency in vitamin D, for example, is encouraged to consume foods rich in vitamin D, monitor vitamin D level, and talk to nutritionist or healthcare provider about vitamin D supplementation. While everyone needs to make sure to follow general recommendations for all essential minerals and vitamins, it is more important to monitor those for which you have elevated genetics-based risks.
There are many steps that we need to take to ensure that we provide the most accurate reports from your DNA, from checking if your saliva sample contain enough DNA, to processing your DNA for SNPs. The whole process should take about 6-8 weeks once we've received the saliva sample from you.
Our reports comes with easy-to-understand explanation and recommendations, to ensure that you get the best experience and understanding out of your trait reports.
