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.  #dnalysis #dnadiet

Do you have a sweet tooth? How we taste our food is not the same for everyone. Taste sensitivity is largely genetically based and can determine the types of food we choose to eat.  #‎dnalysis #dnadiet

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
