What foods does your body want? Receive a custom nutrition plan tailored to your unique genetic makeup. Coming this Fall.
The 4th quarter of 2016 saw 1.6 million people gain access to their genetic data in one form or another, by far the largest number on record. However, the flood of interest in genetics has brought with it massive confusion. Forums are filled with people looking for information about how their genetic variants affect their health. Faced with an overwhelming number of genes, and data that is often conflicting or incomplete, most people want one question answered:
While the science of nutrigenomics and epigenetics is growing everyday, we do know that both diet and lifestyle affect our gene expression. We know that different people process nutrients differently. For example, certain genotypes are associated with food sensitivity like lactose intolerance, others of celiac disease. Our vitamin D receptor genes can play a role in whether we develop diseases like osteoporosis. Our genes even impact how our bodies respond to high sulfur foods like brussel sprouts and cabbage, and how we metabolize ammonia, the waste product of protein consumption.
There are numerous ways we can optimize our health by understanding the ways our genes are impacted by diet, but to date the analysis provided by third party automated tools is lacking. Consistent with Gene Food’s mission of empowering people with the information they need to make intelligent decisions surrounding lifestyle and food, we are in the process of building a platform that can help you use your genetics to create a custom diet that works best for you and your family.
This is a product that is under development, with an expected launch date of fall 2017. If you’re interested in being one of the first to participate in our custom nutrition plan, sign up for our email list below, and you’ll be among the first to know.
