Nutritional Needs Genetic Test
We are what we eat, and despite there being no evidence that
eating carrots will improve your eyesight (as your mother probably
tried to convince you), there is bountiful evidence that
eating a balanced diet is important for our overall health
and wellness. Just how careful we need to be about
this is influenced by our genetic make-up.
To maintain good health, we need vitamins and nutrients to
supplement the energy obtained from fats, carbohydrates and
proteins. These are found in many of the healthy foods
available to us, and if we are not getting enough in our diet,
we can make up the difference with the right vitamins and
supplements. Just how much is 'enough' can vary due
to genetic variations in some of the proteins that regulate how our
bodies use these nutrients; for some of us a 'standard' dietary
intake can be insufficient.
B vitamins are essential for many cellular functions we are
unaware of in our everyday lives, such as repairing damaged
DNA. If these vitamins are not metabolized properly, the
effect on our bodies over time can be negative and profound.
Individuals with certain variations in two of the genes that
control B vitamin metabolism, called MTHFR and TCN2, do not
metabolize B vitamins as effectively as the rest of us.
