This foundational test analyses how gene variants can affect food tolerance (and intolerance), appetite control and blood sugar balance, vitamin and mineral needs, detoxification ability, and susceptibility to inflammation and infection.


Nutrient Core will help you understand the fundamental genetic interactions with diet and lifestyle and indicate whether specific functions require further genetic testing.


It includes genes that have been shown to affect:

* food response - coeliac disease (gluten) and lactose intolerance

* caffeine - sensitivity and metabolism

* microbiome - diversity

* vitamin need - vitamins A, B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin), C, D and K

* blood pressure - sodium-potassium balance & salt sensitive hypertension

* detoxification - glutathione

* metabolism - blood sugar control (insulin), appetite (leptin)

* inflammation - specific (infection response) and systemic

* circadian rhythm - early bird or night owl predisposition


Genes Included:

Food Response: HLA-DQA1, HLA-DQB1 and LCT

Caffeine: CYP1A2 and ADORA2A
Microbiome: FUT2
Vitamins: BCO1, MTHFR, FUT2, TCN2, SLC23A1, COL1A1, GC, VDR and VKORC1
Blood Pressure: ACE and AGT
Detoxification: GSTM1
Metabolism: FADS1/2, FTO, TCF7L2, PGC1A and LEPR
Inflammation: TNF and IFNG
Circadian Rhythm: CLOCK and PER1
