Nutrigenomix

When it comes to your diet, a one-size-fits-all approach may not lead to optimal health. Research has shown that personalized dietary advice based tailored to your DNA is more valuable than general population-based recommendations. Nutrigenomix has developed a safe, easy-to-use kit that enables your Registered Dietitian to develop a healthy eating plan that is modified to your unique genetic profile.

Learn how your genes affect how you respond to:

  • Sodium and risk of high blood pressure
  • Folate and risk of low blood levels of folate
  • Omega-3 Fat and risk of elevated triglyceride levels
  • Saturated Fat and risk of developing obesity
  • Vitamin C and risk of low blood levels of vitamin C
  • Whole Grains and risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Caffeine and risk of heart disease

FAQ

How will Nutrigenomix benefit me?

Individual genetic variations can affect how people respond to the foods, beverages and supplements they consume. It is becoming increasingly clear that our genes determine our specific and unique nutritional needs.

Nutrigenomix has developed a genetic test kit so that you Registered Dietitian can provide you with clear, customized, evidence-based dietary advice that builds on current population-based recommendations. Nutrigenomix test kits are only available through dietitians, the healthcare professionals most qualified to provide personalized nutritional advice.

What is Nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, individuals with lactose intolerance experience gastrointestinal discomfort after consuming certain dairy products, while other individuals can consume dairy with no problems. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to the foods, beverages and supplements we consume.

What is Nutrigenomix?

Nutrigenomix is a University of Toronto start-up biotechnology company that is dedicated to empowering healthcare professionals and their clients with comprehensive, reliable, genomic information with the ultimate goal of improving health through personalized nutrition. Nutrigenomix currently offers two tests with new panels added as the science develops. One consists of a panel of 7 genes related to 7 important aspects of your diet; the other (NGx-Gluten) examines 6 variations in the HLA gene to determine whether you have a low, medium or high risk of gluten intolerance.

Why should I have a Nutrigenomix test? How will the results benefit me?

Armed with information that is specific to your genetic profile, your healthcare professional will be able to develop the best dietary plan to help you meet your goals of improved health and wellness. Adhering to those recommendations will enable you to optimize your nutritional status and specifically focus on preventing nutrition-related chronic diseases.

How is the testing done?

All that is required to test for these 7 important diet-related genes or gluten intolerance is a simple saliva sample. The sample will be taken by your healthcare professional and sent to the Nutrigenomix laboratory for analysis.

Can my test results be bad?

Our Nutrigenomix test analyzes DNA for common genetic variants that affect your response to the foods and beverages you consume. The test does not predict or diagnose any disease or health condition. With the information from your test results, your healthcare professional will be able to provide you with dietary advice tailored to your individual genetic profile.

How long do I need to follow the advice for?

Your test results are not intended to form a short-term “diet”. The information provided in your report, combined with the nutritional plan created by your healthcare professional, will empower you with knowledge so that you can continually make the best dietary choices on a daily basis.
