Nutrigenomix is an award-winning, multinational, biotechnology company led by Dr Ahmed El-Sohemy, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Nutrigenomics at the University of Toronto. The company is well known for their scientific leadership, rigor in qualitative research, actionable DNA-based nutrition and lifestyle markers that support a preventative approach to health rather than disease risk as well as privacy, security, and laboratory standards.
My own experience with genetic testing helped widen my sphere of inquiry and connect the missing dots by uncovering genetic variations that increased my need for certain key nutrients. This allowed me to become more targeted and precise in my nutritional supplementation, lifestyle and food choices. Genetic variations determine how we respond to the foods, nutrients and supplements we consume and differ from one individual to another. You can read a Nutrigenomix 70-Gene Health sample report here.
When you purchase the Nutrigenomix 70-gene Health test, I will contact you to review and sign a consent form, following which a test kit will be shipped to you by Nutrigenomix with instructions for completion and return to their laboratories for analysis (return shipping is free). When the report is available, usually in 2 weeks, I will touch base with you to schedule a 45-minute short consult to discuss your test results and DNA-based dietary recommendations.
As Nutrigenomix is constantly evaluating new research on actionable genetic markers, please contact me before purchasing the test to determine if new add-on options and enhancements to the current 70-gene test are appropriate for you.
