Why undergoing this examination?

Nutrigenetics is the branch of genetics that studies the relation between the genes and nourishment, with the objective of improving the state of health by the diet. Through the nutrigenetic analysis it is possible to plan a personalized nutrition according to the needs of each individual. With the knowledge of these needs, it is possible to elaborate a specific diet that allows the supply of the necessary nutrients for each individual and, therefore, to obtain an appropriate state of health in function of each one genetics.

What is this exam?

From a blood sample and through microarray technology, NutriHealth identifies more than 120 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 95 genes related to nutrition, sports, addictions (alcoholism and smoking), metabolism, detoxification and the aging.

For whom is it indicated?

• People who wish to adapt the diet according to their genetics and meet their specific nutritional needs in a personalized way.
• People who wish to proactively manage their health.
