The Nutrition Sensor analyzes nutrition-relevant genes and shows tendencies for which foods are healthy for the individual or which ones should be avoided.
The Nutrition Sensor analyzes nutrition-relevant genes and shows tendencies for which foods are healthy for the individual or which ones should be avoided. In addition, this genetic analysis allows for determining the individual micronutrient requirements of the analyzed person.
General nutrition recommendations do not fit everyone. It has long been known that a balanced diet has a positive effect on our health and that regular consumption of unhealthy foods has a negative effect. However, general dietary recommendations cannot be made as they do not take into account individual predispositions and needs.
What is healthy for one person may have the opposite effect on another and may even promote the development of diseases. The cause of these individual differences lies in our genes.
Nutrigenetics determines an optimal diet. It has been found that numerous genetic variations influence how the body reacts to certain nutrients or food components and which substances it can convert and utilize properly. This is demonstrated, for example, by well-known metabolic problems such as lactose or gluten intolerance, as well as many other possible ailments.
This area of genetics is called nutrigenetics, which allows for the optimization of individual nutrition through the analysis of nutrition-related genes. The decision of whether a particular food or ingredient is healthy must always take the overall picture into account. In some genetic metabolic disorders, calcium-rich dairy products are very healthy for the body, while milk can be unhealthy in other genetic metabolic problems. In this case, other foods with a high calcium content are particularly important to solve a metabolic problem without triggering another problem. In addition, if the detoxification of heavy metals such as lead is restricted due to unfavorable genetic variations, the need for calcium and other micronutrients increases further to prevent heavy metal poisoning. Therefore, the actual calcium requirement can only be determined if all relevant genes are considered in the analysis. Such a genetic analysis can help identify potential metabolic problems and increase your overall health.
How does the Nutrition Sensor work?
As part of our Nutrition Sensor, our laboratory analyzes the saliva sample submitted for over 50 genetic variations and their effects on around 20 common metabolic disorders.
The comprehensive genetic analysis provides important information about your individual strengths and weaknesses regarding the utilization of various nutrients. These should be considered when choosing or avoiding foods.
We summarize all analysis results in a detailed report that describes in detail where variations in nutrition-related genes could lead to problems and how they should be evaluated overall.
Based on the results of the analysis, we provide specific recommendations for more than 900 foods. Thus, the reliable testing procedure of the Nutrition Sensor offers the possibility to adjust nutrition individually to your health conditions.
