1. Find the optimal Diet for you
Discover which diet approach you should be following to optimise your health and weight management. This may be the Mediterranean Diet, a Low-Fat Diet or a Low-Carbohydrate Diet
2. Carbohydrate Response
Insulin is a hormone that is necessary for the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream into our cells. Our genes can affect the body’s overall sensitivity to insulin. Diet and lifestyle play a very important role in the activity of these genes. If our nutrition and lifestyle are sub-optimal this can result in unbalanced blood sugar levels and an increased risk of developing Type-2 diabetes.
3. Saturated Fat Response
This set of genes look at your individual sensitivity to overall fats and in particular saturated fats. Covering all aspects of fat metabolism, you will find out how well you, absorb your fats from your food, how well you burn fats from the fat stores, where you are likely to store fat, as well as whether saturated fats might contribute to weight gain or increase your cholesterol.
4. Detoxification Potential
This area looks at different genes that determine the quality of our liver detoxification pathways that are responsible for eliminating waste products and toxins from our system. Discover which foods might add to your toxic load and tax your detoxification pathways and which foods might actually support and improve your liver function.
5. Antioxidant Requirements
Antioxidants help protect our body from highly reactive molecules called free-radicals, which we come into contact with every day. These genes will reveal if you have increased requirements for nutrients like: vitamins C and E, ß-carotene, selenium, manganese as well as how many portions of vegetables and fruits you might need daily to support your health.
6. Personal Vitamin, Mineral and Trace Element Requirement
Receive a tailored vitamin and mineral plan showing your recommended daily requirements for each of the nutrients compared to the national recommendations.
7. Salt, Caffeine, Gluten and Alcohol sensitivity
a. Does salt affect your blood pressure?
b. Are you a fast or a slow metaboliser of caffeine? How much coffee should you drink a day? Does caffeine affect your bone density or increase your cardiovascular risk?
c. Do you have an increased risk or gluten sensitivity?
d. Find out how well you process alcohol and if moderate red wine intake might have a cholesterol lowering effect on your health.
8. Lactose Tolerance
This gene indicates if you might be tolerant or intolerant to lactose in your diet.
9. Omega 3 requirement
Discover if you have a raised requirement for omega 3 fats which play a role in cardiovascular health.
10. Vitamin B Metabolism
This plays a role in almost all aspects of health, most notably energy metabolism and cardiovascular health. These genes show if you might benefit from additional B-vitamins to support your metabolism and in which form and amount you should take them in.
10. Bone Density
Discover whether you have raised requirements for vitamin D which is vital for bone strength and density.
