FITGENES Genetic Profiling
A FITGENES genetic profile is based on the science of Nutrigenomics and how our genes are influenced by our nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. Scientific evidence tells us that the functioning of our genes is not static, but in fact they are responsive to our everyday choices, which impacts on how effectively they ‘express’ themselves.
Based on a non-invasive saliva sample, which will be sent away and analysed, we get a personalised genetic profile I can use to provide a holistic approach to addressing certain facets of your genetic profile. Understanding genetic predispositions for certain bodily functions allows me to provide nutritional support that will benefit you the most, including the choice of foods to consume and the type of exercise that will have a positive effect. This eliminates the guesswork around personalising a treatment plan because recommendations are based on your personal genetic profile.
A FITGENES health and wellbeing profile can be especially beneficial for those wanting to address area such as:
- Pain and inflammation
- Healthy ageing
- Cardiovascular concerns
- Low energy and vitality
- Blood pressure dysregulation
- Fat metabolism and cholesterol regulation
- Methylation and homocysteine metabolism
In addition to the general health and well-being profile FITGENES also offer:
- The Foodchoice Panel which provides important insights into the possibility of Celiac Disease, alcohol intolerance, lactose intolerance, salt metabolism issues and caffeine sensitivity, all based on the ability your genes to process certain compounds.
- The Vitamin D Panel is aimed to identify the nutrigenomic and lifestyle areas which can be modified to impact/mitigate the expression of the genes that determine vitamin D levels and status in the body.
- The CarbChoice Panel evaluates how your body processes starchy carbohydrates in order to support healthy weight management and fitness levels.
- The Immunity Panel provides important genetic clues about immune resilience, and what can be done to improve gene expression in immune system related genes
