MODERN GENETICS AND NUTRITION
Nutrigenomic Testing and Analysis
Nutrigenomic testing is a state-of-the-art, innovative technology aimed at bridging the gap between modern genetics and nutrition, and GX Sciences is excited to be at the forefront of nutrigenomic testing providers. GX Sciences began its nutrigenomic DNA testing service in order to provide medical professionals with the tools to safely recommend nutritional supplements to their patients. Their genomic testing and analysis allows for data-driven, personalized nutritional recommendations for every patient. Armed with information, our patients are better-equipped to achieve their nutrition goals.
WHAT IS NUTRIGENOMICS?
Nutrigenomic (NGx) testing is the practice of utilizing genetic markers to determine a patient’s unique metabolic needs. Many people take supplements and vitamins in hopes of improving their nutrition. However, most don’t have specific knowledge or a scientific basis for their nutritional needs, and therefore end up wasting money on supplements with little to no benefit.
Personalized genetic testing solves this problem by providing patients with a targeted, concrete, evidence-based account of their specific nutritional needs.
Nutrigenomic services are totally safe and completely non-invasive, requiring only a cheek swab for a functional sample.
At GX Sciences, they test for genetic variants (i.e. polymorphisms or SNPs) in critical metabolic pathways that affect a patient’s dietary needs. With a comprehensive, personalized report, we are empowered to advise our patients on the best course of action for their dietary regimen.
AREAS OF OUR NUTRIGENOMIC TESTING
At GX Sciences, they test 13 key areas for genetic polymorphisms: Methylation / Mitochondria, Neurological and Psychological , Inflammatory / Auto-immune Potential, Detoxification, Autophagy,Gastrointestinal (GI), Chronic Pain, Pharmacogenomic / Pre-surgical , TBI / Post Concussion, Developmental, Men’s and Women’s hormones along with lifestyle recommendations and health precautions.
They can test 120 gene variants for single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs. Through each area of testing, each individual’s genetic strengths, weaknesses, and idiosyncrasies are evaluated. Once we’ve tested these areas, we have what we need to suggest necessary nutritional supplements for each particular polymorphism along with lifestyle recommendations and health precautions.
