Are you eating right? Ask your genes.

There are so many diets available, it gets difficult to choose which one to follow. Many people may relate to the ‘trial and error’ weight loss experience along a lifetime, always having trouble in maintaining the recently reached weight afterwards.

NutriGenetics is a science that investigates the association between genes and each individual’s response to nutrient intake. The use of information on genetic predisposition to establish a nutritional plan should be integrated with information on:

  • physical characteristics (e.g. age, gender, muscle mass index, etc.) and;
  • behavioural information (e.g. eating habits, physical activity, etc.)

Recent scientific studies reinforce the importance of the integration of the genetic information with each individual’s physical characteristics information (e.g. age, gender, muscle mass index, etc.) and behavioural information (e.g. eating habits, physical activity, etc.) to establish a more:

  • 1) Efficient weight loss plan
  • 2) Sustainable and healthy weight, avoiding weight regain
  • 3) Personalized nutritional plan

 

MyNutriGenes®

MyNutriGenes® is a 99% accurate and actionable genetic test from HeartGenetics that informs about how our unique genetic makeup impacts the definition of a personalised diet and a healthy weight management. MyNutriGenes® is making genetic data more actionable and simple to use, with an impact on daily lives.

 

The MyNutriGenes® report delivers actionable and personalised recommendations with great impact on the weight loss and long-term results.

  • Avoids unnecessary and non-tailored nutritional restrictions by supporting the adoption of nutritional plans and hence improving weight loss metabolism.
  • Enables nutritional action plans for proactive behaviour decisions that take advantage of each individual’s nutritional metabolism features for long-lasting results.
  • Provides a recommended food list, approved by nutritionists, tailored to each person, available online through a web app for multiple devices.
  • Simplifies genetic information to be used by professionals without being genetic experts.

Detailed Information

MyNutriGenes® is a state-of-the-art and an up-to-date genetic test that analyzes 80 genetic variants, present in 54 genes, with a significant impact on the planning of a personalised nutritional plans in 5 main impact areas:

 

MyNutriGenes® Panel

MyNutriGenes® makes use of the most recent and rigorous scientific studies that allows nutritionists to have unique insights of each person’s metabolism. The DNA, extracted from a saliva sample, is analysed in order to evaluate 80 genetic variants from 54 genes. These genes are specifically associated with nutrition and weight management.

Scientific studies

The associations identified between the genetic variants under study and the body’s response to food intake are corroborated by reliable international scientific studies [1-5]. The scientific knowledge presented in the reports resulted from the evaluation of more than 300 scientific studies, including meta analyses of cohorts from 3.000 to 30.000 participants [6-8]. Only peer reviewed scientific publications presenting statistically significant genotype-phenotype correlations have been considered [9-12].
