about Nutri Genomics


This Genetic metabolic screen assesses how your genes may impact specific metabolic processes that have a deep impact on your overall health.

The way we fuel our bodies with the foods we intake is all impacted by our genetic make-up. The old adage “you are what you eat” plays a major role in determining our health and well-being. Food and its nutrients directly and indirectly influence our gene expressions. Genetic variations affects certain metabolic traits which dictates dietary needs and requirements.

WThe Genetic makeup is the response to food which varies from individual to individual determining why some people eat more and still never gain weight. These factors may be attributed to the large role that genes play in influencing eating behaviors and metabolism of different foods. 

We have assessed your genes for more than 6 lakhs metabolic traits and we have arrived at an conclusion of tailor-made dietary recommendations. Your nutrient requirements are formulated to suit the genetic variations identified in your DNA. Your results have been analyzed to determine the best diet likely to help you optimize your health, stay fit and feel happier! is our core motto.

  A unique diet for unique you. Diets become a fun game when you can design it for yourself!

What We Covered:


People of certain genetic type have more of a tendency to gain weight than others due to their genetic makeup. Genes that regulate metabolic rate, energy expenditure and energy storage influence the tendency to store calories versus expending calories. Certain genes that once offered a survival advantage to our ancestors by storing calories for leaner times have now become liabilities in the age of surplus food availability. Your genetic profile influences the tendency of your body to store or expend more calories
Tendency to Gain Weight
People of certain genetic type have more of a tendency to over consume foods. We analyze genes that are known to influence various hunger and satiety hormones such as Leptin, Ghrelin and Neuropeptides, which influence neurological aspects of feeding, producing effects such as persistent hunger, excessive snacking, preference for high calorific food and emotional eating.
Tendency to over-eat
People of certain genetic type tend to over consume fatty foods due to a lower ability to perceive fats. In studies, people with lower fat perception ability were found to rate the fat content of food consistently lower than the actual fat content. Eating high quantities of fatty food can lead to weight gain and other health conditions.
Tendency to prefer Fatty Foods
People of certain genetic type tend to over consume sweet foods due to low sensitivity to sweet taste, either due to lesser number or reduced sensitivity of sweet taste receptors on their tongue. Sugary foods are rich in calories and can cause insulin resistance, leading to weight gain and other health conditions.
Tendency to prefer sweet foods
Bitter taste perception is due to genetic variations in taste receptors. When food is chewed in the mouth, molecules such as phenylthiocarbamide bind to the taste receptors present in the tongue, which gives rise to the bitter taste. People of certain genetic type tend to avoid bitter vegetables due to higher sensitivity to bitter taste. Vegetables are low calorie and high fiber foods, which help in weight management and have Several health benefits.
Tendency to prefer Bitter Foods
Carbohydrates are the main sources of energy and they provide the kilocalories for weight maintenance. Approximately 45-65% of total calories are recommended intake of carbohydrates with starch and sugars being the major carbohydrates. other than this Corn, rice, potatoes, pasta and breads are also rich sources of starch. Fruits and juices have natural sugars while desserts, candies and soft drinks have added sugar. Carbs are considered as weight increasing foods but that's not true for everyone. People of certain genetic type tend to gain more weight upon consuming carbohydrate rich foods than others. These individuals can better maintain weight by reducing the amount of carbs in their diet. Eat a balanced diet. Choose complex carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grain.
Carbohydrate Intake & Weight Gain Tendency
Saturated fats are a type of fat that are largely solid at room temperature as they are saturated with hydrogen molecules. Meat and Dairy products are rich sources of saturated fats. A high intake of saturated fats is associated with an increase in LDL cholesterol levels in the body. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 5-6% of calories from saturated fat from the daily diet. People of certain genetic type tend to gain more weight upon consuming saturated fat rich foods than others. These individuals can better maintain weight by reducing the amount of saturated fats in their diets.
Saturated Fats Intake & Weight Gain Tendency
Mono-unsaturated fatty acids include omega-7 and omega 9 fatty acids. They are associated with anti-inflammatory properties, lowering blood pressure, maintaining triglyceride levels. MUFAs are also found to benefit skin health as they balance water levels and provide ceramides for skin renewal. The Mediterranean diet is rich in MUFA. People of certain genetic type tend to gain weight upon consuming MUFA rich foods thanothers. These individuals can better maintain weight by balancing the amount of MUFA in their diets. MUFA is beneficial for overall health and particularly heart health, individuals with the weight gain genotype can increase the amount of exercise to compensate for the increased risk of weight gain.
Mono Unsaturated Fats Intake & Weight Gain Tendency
Omega 3s are important for brain and heart health as they reduce blood pressure and triglyceride levels. They are also important for skin and vision health. Omega 6s help in bone health and in stimulating hair growth. People of certain genetic type tend to gain weight upon consuming PUFA rich foods than others. These individuals can better maintain weight by lowering the amount of PUFA in their diets or increasing physical activity. Importantly, targeting the Omega3: Omega6 ratio is recommended, with preference towards Omega 3.
Poly Unsaturated Fats Intake & Weight Gain Tendency
Protein is an important building block for bones, skin, blood, cartilage and muscles, and it is present in every cell of our body. Nails, hair, enzymes, Hormones and other body chemicals consist of large amounts of protein. Moreover, our body utilizes protein to build and repair tissues. People of certain genetic type tend to benefit more in terms of weight maintenance with high protein intake than others.
Protein Intake & Weight Loss Tendency
People of certain genetic type tend to quickly regain weight after having been on a weight loss program. These individuals need to continue adherence to exercise and diet program to maintain optimal weight.
Tendency to Re-Gain Weight
In this we are doing assessment of your genes which are responsible for vitamins, any defect in this genotype may lead to deficiency of vitamins which are lead to produces some serious disease in future or may lead to transfer in child also. All these vitamins (Vit A, B2, B6, B9, B12, C, D, K, E, Chlorine) are usually not screened by routine blood reports.
Vitamins Requirement
In this we are doing assessment of your genes which are responsible for metabolism of mineral (Ex: Calcium, Copper, Selenium, Zinc, Magnesium, Phosphorus, iron), All minerals are harmful if they are in excess form and even dangerous for health if they are in deficiency level in daily body requirements.
Minerals Requirements
Antioxidants play a key role in reducing the ill effects of 'free radicals' and thereby preventing premature aging, tissue damage and the onset of Chronic diseases. They are present in many vegetables, fruits, cereals, green tea, etc. People of certain genetic type have lower efficiency todefend themselves against free radical damage and hence require more antioxidants in their diet.
Anti-Oxidant Needs
People of certain genetic type are slow metabolizers of caffeine and may experience symptoms such as palpitations and anxiety upon consuming more than 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day. These individuals may also be at a higher risk of heart disease with increased coffee intake.
Caffeine Consumption & Metabolism
People of certain genetic type may have lower tolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Some people experience symptoms like abdominal cramps, bloating, “foggy mind”, depression, headaches, pain in the bone or joint, diarrhea or constipation and chronic fatigue when they have gluten in their diet but may not test positive for serological determination of celiac disease. When gluten is removed from their diet, these symptoms subside, this condition is known as gluten sensitivity. In some cases (~1% of western population) it may lead to celiac disease.
Gluten Sensitive
People of certain genetic type stop producing the enzyme lactase in late childhood. Lactase is needed to breakdown the sugar lactose present in milk. These individuals may experience gastro-intestinal symptoms upon consuming large quantities of milk as adults.
Lactose Intolerance
Sodium is an essential electrolyte present in the extra cellular fluid. It regulates osmosis and maintains fluid levels within the cell and it also plays an important role in enzyme functions and contraction of muscles. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends not more than 2300 mg of salt per day. However, most people intake too much salt. On an average 3400 mg of salt is consumed with most of it absorbed from processed foods. People of certain genetic type will have higher blood pressure in response to high salt consumption. Nearly 50% of hypertensive people are salt sensitive, which is associated with a rise in BP with salt intake. These individuals will tend to reduce BP with lower salt intake, which is recommended
Salt Intake & blood pressure sensitivity
Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is a water soluble vitamin. Nerves and brain need riboflavin to function properly. It is also required for healthy skin, hair, eyes and liver. People of certain genetic types will have lower blood pressure in response to high riboflavin intake.
Riboflavin & blood pressure response
People of certain genetic type may experience symptoms like redness of the face and neck upon consuming alcohol due to reduced clearance of Acetaldehyde which is produced in the body upon consuming alcohol. Though alcohol avoidance per limitation is recommended for all, people with the alcohol flush genotype may be at higher health risk upon alcohol consumption
Alcohol Flush
