We use 23andMe® as our lab service in order to obtain your genetic data, since we cannot do this on our own. By doing this, we can use your raw genetic data to extrapolate information about your genes specifically related to nutrition and how you may need certain vitamins or minerals for certain biological processes to occur properly.
Reviewing your genetic results with a healthcare provider can greatly enhance your test result experience, allowing you to have a one-on-one discussion and develop a greater understanding on how your genes affect you. This is where personalized care begins.
A genetic SNP, or Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, is a variation of a particular gene sequence causing a disruption in which the genetic information is processed. This can alter the shape, size, functionality, or quantity of a particular protein that may serve important biological functions. A few SNPs also affect some nutritional biochemical processes that may need specific nutrition supplementation (See Figure 1 below).
