Nutrigenomix Testing

Personalized Nutrition with Nutrigenomix Testing

Nutrigenomics is the study of how individual genetic variation affects a person’s response to nutrients and impacts the risk of nutrition-related chronic diseases. 

Nutrigenomix is a Canadian company who offers genetic testing exclusively through healthcare practitioners, providing clients with support to implement their results.  Nutrigenomix testing includes a DNA sample, collected using a quick non-invasive oral swab. The test investigates 70 genetic markers, providing  actionable information for: 

  • food intolerances

  • nutrient metabolism

  • weight management & body composition 

  • heart health

  • eating habits 

  • physical activity 

Results Tailored to Your Lifestyle & Goals​ 


A customized comprehensive report is provided, which is reviewed with your dietitian to discuss how to practically integrate your results into your lifestyle.

Research shows that clients can have increased success implementing nutrition and fitness goals that are specific to their DNA profile. 

Your report can be tailored to optimize the following health-related areas:

  • overall health and wellness

  • plant based nutrition 

  • sports performance & endurance  

  • fertility for men and women

Two appointments with your dietitian are included. The first appointment is 30 minutes including DNA collection, and identification of your nutrition-related goals to prioritize. For virtual appointments, your DNA collection swab kit will be mailed to you. 

The DNA sample is sent to the laboratory in Toronto, which takes about four to six weeks to analyze the sample and provide your results report. 

Once your results are received by your dietitian, a second appointment for 60 minutes is confirmed. During this appointment your results and report are reviewed with your dietitian.
