Genomics Information

 

A genome is an organism’s complete set of genetic instructions, and can be found in almost every cell in the body. The human genome is made up of 20,000 – 25,000 genes, containing over 3 billion base pairs of DNA.

Genomics identifies and analyses variations in the DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). A SNP may have no effect at all or it can change the proteins created by a gene, making them more or less effective. Proteins run all systems in our body, and over time a small change can have a great impact on the organism.

Every time a cell replicates itself to replace dying cells in an organ or tissue, or when a protein needs to be produced, portions of the chromosome need to expose the needed genetic information. Sometimes during this process malfunctions and leads to errors or variations in the newly created proteins. Most of the time our system detects and repairs DNA errors before they get translated into a protein, but at times they become a permanent part of the DNA, leading to alterations in a person’s biochemistry and metabolism. Over time, this can result in developing certain chronic diseases.

Genomic testing provides a better understanding of an individual’s genetic blueprint, providing the scientific data and analytical information needed to develop a precise, individualized DNA based daily nutrition plan to improve health and athletic performance.


Genomic Testing Packages

 

We offer two different genomics packages: athletic performance and health and wellness. Your test results are presented in a customized report, which includes dna based nutrition recommendations from your enrg performance sport dietitian.

 

Each genomic test contains 45 of the most applicable genetic markers that includes information about the following:

Nutrient Metabolism

  • Micronutrient deficiencies (Vitamin A, B12, C, D, E, Folate, Iron, and Calcium)

Cardiometabolic Health

  • Caffeine (fast or slow metabolizer which can impact health and athletic performance)
  • Whole grains and Type 2 Diabetes association
  • Sodium and the predisposition to heart disease and hypertension
  • Omega-3 fat and the quantity necessary to improve health and performance
  • Saturated fat and body composition association

Weight Management

  • Energy balance and its association with resting metabolic rate
  • Physical activity (endurance, power/strength)
  • Protein, total fat, saturated and unsaturated fat associated with body weight and body composition goals

Food Intolerance Risks

  • Lactose
  • Gluten

Eating Habits

  • Fat taste perception
  • Sugar and starch preference
  • Tendency to eat between meals

Fitness and Physical Activity

  • Exercise motivation and behavior
