What is Nutrigenomics?
Do you have trouble digesting milk, feel bloated when you eat cheese or ice cream(lactose)? Does that pasta dinner (gluten) leave you in pain for days? Do you feel tired or achy and don’t know why? You’re doing just what ALL your friends are doing and not seeing any improvement or weight loss! Nutrigenomics may help solve these problems.
Nutrigenomics is a new area of science dealing with genetics, nutrition and health. It has been well documented, people respond differently to different foods. One person may have difficulty digesting lactose while another can handle lactose just fine. Using the information from Nutrigenomics testing, an eating plan can be designed to cater to your DNA profile.
Nutrigenomics testing can be of benefit in many ways. It can be used to help athletes perform their best by ensuring their diet is optimal for them specifically. The information gathered is also used to determine a nutritional strategy, so the average person can be sure they are eating for optimal health.
The relation between our diet and disease has been hotly debated and this is a massive leap forward for the prevention of such diseases.
Combined with working with a personal trainer, Nutrigenomics can greatly help people with their goals whether it is weight loss, sports performance or overall health. I offer Nutrigenomics testing for both my training clients and individuals just interested in nutrition in Oakville and Mississauga. Contact me for more details.
