What Does My Body Really Need?
Certain general guidelines apply to a healthy lifestyle—eat lots of fresh foods, reduce the intake of sugar and processed foods, and drink plenty of water. But any one-size-fits-all dietary program will inevitably fall short of providing the nutritional needs unique to your personal genetic makeup.
Humans are 99% genetically identical. It’s the 1% that accounts for variations in the ability to absorb, convert, and utilize specific nutrients. According to the National Institutes of Health, eating the right kinds of foods can improve natural defense systems, and prevent many chronic diseases.
Genomic testing can identify the personalized types and amounts of vitamins and minerals necessary to support natural defense systems, prevent disease, improve existing conditions, and optimize health for as long as possible.
Our Ultimate Wellness genomic test evaluates macronutrient and micronutrient requirements, and includes:
Alcohol & Caffeine Tolerance; Taste Preferences; Methylation/Homocysteine and B-complex Vitamins; Vitamins A, C, D, E; CoQ10; Omega Fatty Acids; Selenium; Calcium; Fats and Carbohydrates.
