Why undergoing this examination?

Obesity is a chronic and complex disease. It is the result of the interaction between multiple environmental factors (nutrition, exercise, stress, etc.) and genetic factors. Nutrigenetics is the branch of genetics that studies the relationship between genes and foods, aiming to achieve an optimal state of health through diet. Through the nutrigenetic analysis it is possible to plan a personalized nutrition according to the needs of each person. Knowing these needs, you can elaborate a specific diet that allows providing the necessary nutrients for each individual and this way to obtain an adequate state of health taking into account the genetic constitution. A diet based on genetics is between 2 and 3 times more effective than a conventional diet for weight loss.
