BioActify Nutrigenomics: The future of nutrition and health

Simply—Nutrigenomics describes the genetic reason one person can eat certain foods and not gain weight, while another person  will consume the same and gain weight.

You are 2.44 times more likely to lose weight with BioActify nutrigenomics.

Nutrigenomics is an advanced area of medicine that helps determine how adjusting our diet according to genetic data, can improve our health and weight.

Genes are the blueprint of our body, and obesity is 80% influenced by our genes. Meaning, genetically some people are predisposed to gaining excess weight.   Each person carries some sort of genes mutations. Due to mutations in certain genes, some people may gain weight easily by absorbing too much fat, while others will have twice as much fat in their diet and still absorb only the necessary amount.

Everyone is different, so it is important to find out where the genetic weaknesses are, and how to use genetic strengths to lead a healthy, long life.

By analyzing over 50 genetic variations, we compile a wealth of information about your inborn genetic strengths and weaknesses and apply those to improve your nutrition, fitness and overall health.

Nutritional choices impact health and disease

Example of how the foods we eat affect us differently due to our genes

Carbohydrates: some people gain weight from eating carbs while others are completely unaffected by the amount of sugar in carbs.

Why test your genes

We inherit obesity and other diseases through gene mutations.

Minimize emotional stress and economic burden of not knowing what’s making you sick or what will make you sick if you keep eating it.

Example: People with certain mutations in these two genes (Gene ADRB2 & Gene FTO),  have a 1.28 points higher BMI  on average than people without those mutations.

Through an analysis of more than 50 genes that are relevant for your nutrition, we can now determine the areas you are well protected, where there are possible deficits, due to your metabolism.

Genetic analysis can provide valuable information about how the foods, supplements and medicines you consume are metabolized by your body and how they influence your health.

The analysis can help you avoid poorly tolerated food and optimally provide your body with important nutrients.

Genetic analysis can even provide valuable information about whether certain substances, which are usually considered healthy, can be metabolized by your body properly.

Example: For many people, taking Omega 3 significantly improves their cholesterol levels. For others, due to a variation in the APOA1 gene, Omega 3 doesn’t improve their cholesterol level and might even worsen it. Without knowing which gene variant you carry, you might not be getting the needed micronutrients from foods or supplements you consume.

Benefits of testing your genes with BioActify DNA Test:

It helps you uncover

  • how foods you eat interact with your genes
  • what you are genetically predisposed to
  • Exploration of the root cause of your health issues
  • A deep dive into your nutrition and health

More info about some of the genes we test

– FTO gene and fat sensitivity: people who take in a lot of fat and carry the unfavorable gene variation of this gene have a BMI of about 2.4 points higher than people who take in a lot of fat and have the favorable gene variant. This is a difference of approx. 18 Lbs!

– PPARG gene and influence on fat sensitivity: people with the unfavorable gene variant who had a particularly high fat intake through their food, had an average of 1.9 BMI points more than persons with the favorable gene variant who had a particularly high fat intake through the food. This is a 15 lbs difference!

– PPARG gene Influence on weight reduction with calorie reduction and exercise: people with the favorable genetic variation lost 4.9% more weight than people with the unfavorable genetic variations.

– ADRB3 gene Influence on weight reduction through exercise: People with the unfavorable gene variant, who exercise have a 2.98-fold higher risk (298%) of becoming overweight.

– ADRB3 gene Influence on exercise and calorie reduction: People with the unfavorable gene variant lost 1.6lbs less weight than people with the favorable gene variant.

– APOA5 gene Influence on weight reduction efficiency: People with the favorable gene variant reduced their BMI by 13.4%, while people with the unfavorable gene variant reduced their BMI by 0.4% with the same effort.

– APOA2 gene and fat sensitivity: People who take in a lot of fat and have the unfavorable gene variant have on average a 6.2% higher BMI than people who take in a lot of fat and carry the favorable gene variant. This is again a variation of about 14 lbs!

Genetics and Obesity

We inherit obesity through gene mutations. Eight genes are tested  to help answer some of your questions relating to genes and obesity.

Questions such as

  • Your genetic predisposition to obesity
  • Is obesity caused by fat, in your case?
  • Is obesity caused by carbohydrates, in your case?
  • How strong is the Yoyo-Effect in your case?
  • Is fat deposited around your organs?
  • How intense is your hunger?
  • How intense is your satiety?
  • Do you tend to have a diet particularly rich in calories, due to your genes?
  • Do you tend to eat several small snacks, because of your genes?
  • How effective is calorie reduction (eating less) for losing weight?
  • How much muscle mass do you lose by a reduction in calories?
  • What relationship between strength and endurance sports is recommended for you?
  • What can you eat without problems and what should you avoid?

How much influence do genes have on body weight?

According to research there is a heritable component to BMI and fat mass. Several studies found that the genetic component of overweight or fat mass seems to be between 20% and 90%.

-In a family studies that compared a parent-child and sibling correlations, heritability estimates fall in the range of 20% to 80%.

-In twins studies, heritability estimates fall in the range of  50% to 90%

-In an analysis of over 3.500 twin pairs who were 4 years old, shared  environmental factors accounted for 24 percent of variance in weight adjusted for height in boys and 25 percent of the variance in girls.

*Note: The effects of all genes can be measured, but you cannot identify the genes responsible for them. The genes we analyze are certainly only just a part of the estimated 20 % to 90% heritability.

Eat What You Like. Lose 2.4 times more weight loss.

Based on your genetic analysis, our scientists evaluate your genetic profile and create a metabolic profile and a customized DNAnutrition plan for you.

This isn’t a one size fit all. This is personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan, unique to your genes.

The BioActify DNAnutrition  plan is flexible and allows you to easily maintain or lose weight.

This is not a diet plan

BioActify DNAnutrition is your own personalized nutrition plan based on your DNA test results. The plan contains over 900  recipes with foods that you probably already eat.

Why use your genes to improve your diet?

Your genes influence how your body responds to certain nutrients and food ingredients. And, also affect which nutrients your body can properly metabolize. Since your diet plays a decisive role for your health and weight, we can recommend a suitable nutrition plan for you based on your unique genes to improve your health and weight.

Which foods are right for you? 

 

Thanks to advanced science in human genetics, your genetic profile shows the foods you should avoid, and those you should eat to help you be healthier 

 

In our analysis of foods or food ingredients that are healthy for your consumption, we look at the bigger picture. For example, one nutrient can be beneficial for one health factor but harmful for another due to genetic mutations.

Based on the data from all relevant gene analyses and your results, we will be able to evaluate your individual risks and determine whether a particular food is healthy or unhealthy for you.

If a particular weakness is identified in your analysis, your nutritional plan is adjusted to exclude all dietary ingredients that are unhealthy for you. We then help you increase what’s healthy for you. This plan will increase your chances of sustaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Eat what you like!

BioActify Recipes contain over 900 foods tailored to your genes. Your profile will be presented with foods you can eat without problems, and what you should rather avoid. This way,  you can eat what you like!
