NUTRIGENOMIX®

Have you ever wondered why you feel sluggish after eating certain foods? Would you like to know if a high protein diet is right for you? Do you avoid particular foods because you know they will make you feel uncomfortable as your body digests?

Science has shown how specific genes modify our response to different dietary components. Nutrigenetics – the study of the interplay between the genes you were born with, your nutrition and health outcomes – makes it now possible to personalize what you put in your body.

At Medisys we believe one size does not fit all. By understanding our own unique make up, we can learn to use nutrition to prevent, manage or improve various health issues.

 

What is tested?

By matching what you eat with your unique genetic profile, the Nutrigenomix® test suggests how you can optimize your energy potential and improve your health. With a buccal swab (from the inside cheek), this test evaluates 70 genetic markers and how those specific genes change your response to different dietary components. The test at Medisys covers six categories, including:

  • Nutrient metabolism
  • Cardiometabolic health
  • Weight management & body composition
  • Food intolerances
  • Eating habits
  • Fitness & physical activity

 

Who should be tested?

Nutrigenomix® is a test for anyone with an interest in changing their diet to help optimize their health using targeted nutrition advice. You may benefit from this test if you have:

  • Food intolerances
  • Metabolic health issues
  • Sport-nutrition optimization goals
  • Weight-management challenges

Individuals should not use this test as a diagnosis for food allergies.

* Nutrigenomix® is currently available in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Ottawa.
