Tired of conflicting weight loss advice? The reason it is all so confusing might be because there is no such thing as an optimal lifestyle for weight loss -- rather, it comes down to your genetic makeup.
Studies have shown that variation in certain genes has an impact on our requirement of nutrition and changes the impact that different foodstuffs may have on health. These genetic markers may signal susceptibilities to certain health conditions.
Our DNA testkits provide the output of genetic analysis on a range of genes. Testing is easy: in order to send us a saliva specimen, you simply spit in a tube and send the tube to us in a supplied envelope. Our reports contain your results, their relationship to your health, and customized advice on nutrition and exercise routines to reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Seek betterment of physical and mental health through nutrition and sports.
Nutrient intake and physical activity are essential factors affecting body weight, body composition, energy metabolism, and energy utilization. With the advances in genome research and investigations into genetic variations now it's known that up to 70% of body weight variability is down to our genes and that the personal genetic constitution is involved in the susceptibility to gaining or losing weight in response to a diet, appetite, lipid over-absorption, adipogenesis, thermogenesis, among others.
With the use of nutrigenomics we aim at designing personalized diet and lifestyle programs that have the potential to achieve optimum nutrient content, based on the current understanding of your genetic profile and your individual nutrient requirements. The DNA test kit from Persometrics requires a saliva sample to be returned to our lab. From this, we provide you a report to tell you about your fat and carbohydrate sensitivity, weight loss ability, and list recommended diets and physical activities. The genes analyzed are FTO, PPARG, ADRB2, ACTN3, and ACE.
