Eat according to your genes

Did you know your unique genetic make-up affects how your body responds to certain foods, beverages and supplements?

Knowing this information can help you reduce your risk of nutrition-related chronic disease. This is the branch of science called nutrigenomics, and it’s popping out of scientific journals and into dietitian’s offices across Canada. Nutrigenomix™  is a University of Toronto spinoff biotechnology company founded by global leaders in nutrigenomics research and they’ve created a simple test exclusively for Dietitian use.

We are excited to be one of the first to carry this test kit and be able to provide you with such personalized recommendations.

The simple Nutrigenomix™ test requires only a saliva sample. Once analyzed, it reveals how your unique genetic code determines your body’s response to vitamin C, folate, whole grains, omega-3 fat, saturated fat, sodium and caffeine. Based on the results, our dietitians can guide you to eat more – or less—of certain foods in order to decrease your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and related health conditions.
