Multiple genetic variants are linked to the blood pressure response to salt. Reduction of sodium in the diet of individuals with the ACE and AGT genetic variants for salt sensitivity has positive affects on blood pressure.
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.
Nutrigenetically tailored diets lead to greater compliance and longer-term BMI reduction. Arkadianos I et al. Nutr J. 2007 Oct 18;6:29. #dnalysis #dnadiet (scheduled via http://www.tailwindapp.com?utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=twpin&utm_content=post77307736&utm_campaign=scheduler_attribution)
A clinical trial conducted on a research group from Stanford University found that subjects on diets appropriate for their genotype achieved statistically significant average weight loss of at one year compared to individuals not on a diet matched to genotype. #dnalysis #dnadiet
