Nutrient Core

£249.00

This foundational test analyses how gene variants can affect food tolerance (and intolerance), appetite control and blood sugar balance, vitamin and mineral needs, detoxification ability, and susceptibility to inflammation and infection.

Category:
  • Suitable for everyone
  • Understanding your food tolerance and intolerance – lactose, gluten, caffeine, microbiome diversity
  • Understaning gene variants affecting vitamin and mineral needs

This test analyses how gene variants can affect food tolerance (and intolerance), appetite control and blood sugar balance, vitamin and mineral needs, detoxification ability, and susceptibility to inflammation and infection.

Nutrient Core will help you understand the fundamental genetic interactions with diet and lifestyle and indicate whether specific functions require further genetic testing. It includes genes that have been shown to affect:

  • food response – gluten (coeliac) and lactose intolerance

  • caffeine – sensitivity and metabolism

  • microbiome – diversity

  • vitamin need – vitamins A, B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin), C, D and K

  • blood pressure – sodium-potassium balance & salt sensitive hypertension

  • detoxification – glutathione

  • metabolism – blood sugar control (insulin), appetite (leptin)

  • inflammation – specific (infection response) and systemic

  • circadian rhythm – early bird or night owl predisposition

GENES INCLUDED

Food Response: HLA-DQA1, HLA-DQB1 and LCT
Caffeine: CYP1A2 and ADORA2A
Microbiome: FUT2
Vitamins: BCO1, MTHFR, FUT2, TCN2, SLC23A1, COL1A1, GC, VDR and VKORC1
