The analysis contains suggestions for consideration based on an individual's test results. By looking at diagrammatic representations of the methylation pathway we are able to draw a personalized map for each individual. The methylation cycle is the ideal pathway to focus on for nutrigenomic analysis because the proper function of this pathway is essential for a number of critical reactions in the body. Nutrigenomics integrates concepts in molecular biology and genomics to study the ability of foods and nutritional supplements and how these may assist in maintaining overall health and wellness.
According to the National Center of Excellence in Nutritional Genomics at UC Davis, "The science of nutrigenomics seeks to provide a molecular understanding of how common dietary chemicals (i.e., nutrition) affect health by altering the expression and/or structure of an individual's genetic makeup... by understanding our nutritional needs, our nutritional status and our genotype, nutrigenomics should enable individuals to manage better their health and well being by precisely matching their diets with their unique genetic makeup."
