SMART GENES: THE FUTURE
Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are defined as the science of the effect of genetic variation on dietary response and the role of nutrients and bioactive food compounds in gene expression, respectively.
Navigator Biochem works with genetic technologies to unlock the potential encoded in your genes. This information maximises your genetic potential and helps you make the best lifestyle, dietary, meditation, supplementation and exercise choices.
Our focus on your unique gene expression and protein-structure function empowers you in your day-to-day life.
The ultimate goal is to:
- To match the nutriome, estrobolome, microbiome and neurobiome with the the current genome status which we get from your DNA swab (i.e. the steroid hormone pathways and your gut, with your inherited and acquired genomes).
- This is so that genome maintenance, gene expression, metabolism and cell function can occur normally so that you may Thrive
- We interpret data from epidemiological and clinical studies regarding dietary factors that impact health. This helps us revise our recommendations for your personalised interventions.
Genes that impact fat metabolism are also tested, including those for “fats and fitness”, all-round fat metabolism risk, the “moderation” gene, the energy intake modifying gene, the “feed me” gene, as well as genes for eating less meat, response to dieting and suitability to the Mediterranean diet.
Genes tested include those of the steroid hormones that influence folate metabolism and heart health, amino acid processing, as well as inflammation and recovery.
For the amine hormones, genes are tested that impact stress and ovarian cancer, metabolism of external and internal substances (hormones, etc.) and cancer.
Genes tested include those that modulate addiction, total sugar intake, management of information under pressure, stress, susceptibility to ovarian cancer, as well as the “sweet tooth” gene and the “feed me” gene.
Genes tested include those that impact the diet, specifically a good response to the Mediterranean diet, as well as “fats and fitness” genes.
Genes tested include those that control the body’s inflammatory response as well as some that modulate the immune response.
Genes involved in insulin response and resistance are tested, including those that determine risk for folate deficiency and psychological impacts, amino acid processing, vitamin E and inflammatory response, fats and fitness, the “sweet tooth” gene, risk for addiction genes, genes that modulate total sugar intake as well as those that determine total energy intake for weight management. In addition, genes are tested that show if the Mediterranean diet is best for you.
Genes that are tested include those for phase 1 detoxification that influence the body’s response and processing of carcinogens and metabolism of internal and external substances as well as for cancer susceptibility.
Phase 2 detoxification genes are also tested. These include genes for vitamin E processing and response, inflammation and genes for folate processing and heart health.
Genes tested include those related to micro pathogen richness in the gut, irritable bowel disease and celiac disease. In addition, we also test for genes related to susceptibility to Crohn’s disease and slower absorption of sugar in the gut which may confer beneficial effects from a high carbohydrate diet.
