Can Nutrigenomix Aid Weight Loss Efforts?

January 28th, 2022

Nutrigneomix offers a comprehensive genetic test consisting of 70 genetic markers. This information can tell us why people metabolize nutrients differently. DNA is analyzed from a simple cheek swab sample. Genetic tests are based on the most robust scientific evidence. Test kits are mailed directly to your home and results are back within two to four weeks. The results are provided as clear actionable personalized recommendations so you can start eating according to your genes.

Does knowing your genetic variants assist with weight loss efforts? Many studies have demonstrated just that. Here is a sampling of some of the studies:

  • Certain genetic variants are associated with decreased appetite regulation and increased risk for weight gain and higher intakes of sugar.
  • Other genetic variants are associated with increased weight loss by changing the fatty acid composition of your diet.
  • Those with the AA genotype of the FTO Gene lost the greatest amount of weight by following a high protein diet.
  • Some individuals possess genetic variants that make them more likely to lose weight in response to exercise.

These are just a few examples of the helpful information you can learn on how Nutrigenomix can assist with weight loss. Likewise, many randomized controlled trials have demonstrated that those individuals who are given genetic information are more likely to make positive behavior changes and stick with them. They tend to have a better understanding of the recommendations, are more motivated and more likely to maintain healthy behavior changes than individuals who do not have this personalized information and are just taken through general lifestyle enhancement programs.
