Nutrigenomix (DNA) testing
Mariame Iraki is now offering an exciting new service called Nutrigenomix. It is a genetic test using your saliva that will help create your personalized nutrition recommendations that are based on your DNA.
Nutrigenomix has developed a test that uses modern DNA technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health. We all know that some people respond differently from others to certain foods. For example, some individuals have a gene that means their body is slow to breaking down caffeine; meaning caffeine affects them more than other people. This may also mean that they are at a higher risk of heart disease. Nutrigenomix helps us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to food.
Nutrigenomix™ has developed a new comprehensive Health & Wellness panel, which consists of 45 genetic markers that impact nutrition and fitness recommendations related to weight management, nutrient metabolism, cardiometabolic health, food intolerances, eating habits and physical activity. This new 45-gene test replaces the 7-gene + gluten combo, which is now included in the new test. Armed with this information, specific to your genetic profile. Mariame will be able to develop the best dietary plan to help you meet your goals of improved health and wellness.
