Why the Nutrition Report?
The Nutrition Report is approximately 40 pages (it differs based on your DNA) and analyzes over 100 markers to provide insight into 30 traits.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how your genetic variants influence your ability to metabolize nutrients. This information provides an overview of the metabolic efficiency of key nutrients that support the recovery of your body after exercise. It is important to realize that while these genetic markers are great indicators, getting a blood test may also be advisable as this will provide a deﬁnitive measurement of nutrient status.
The research team at Athletigen has formulated ways for you to increase your nutritional intake dependant on your genetic results. Whether it’s time you should spend in the sun to get your daily Vitamin D intake or different ways to stay focused if you are sensitive to caffeine, we have the answers for you.
Using DNA data to understand how efficiently your body responds to, and uses the vitamins that you consume everyday can empower you to tailor your diet to your specific nutritional needs. In this section you will learn how to improve your intake of: Water-soluble vitamins that help your body in the production of energy and growth. Fat-soluble vitamins that help maintain eye, skin, blood cell, and bone health. Vitamin D that is made by your body when you spend time in the sun, but is harder to obtain during the winter without supplementation.
Minerals are an essential part of your diet that are used to build bones and teeth, send signals through your nervous system, and trigger contractions in your muscles. Improve your understanding of your body's response to major minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, electrolytes like sodium, and potassium, and the trace minerals like copper and iron.
Macronutrients are the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that your body uses for energy, and the building blocks of your cells. Poor metabolism, caused by genetic variants or overeating, can impact the usage and storage of macronutrients and potentially impact your health and wellbeing.
Certain foods can react with your body in undesirable ways, by being difficult to digest or by kicking your immune system into action. Find out if your genetic variants make you sensitive to your diet.
