Eat According To Your Genes!
Nutrigenomics uses new technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition, and our health. We know that some people respond differently to different foods. For example, some individuals experience stomach discomfort after eating dairy while others do not. Nutrigenomics enables us to understand how our genes affect the way we respond to food, beverages, and supplements.

Overview of lipoprotein particles and cholesterol:
Cholesterol testing has historically been used as the standard indicator for cardiovascular disease classified as HDL (good) or LDL (bad). However, it is actually the lipoprotein particles that carry the cholesterol throughout the body, not necessarily the cholesterol within them, that are responsible for key steps in plaque production and the resulting development of cardiovascular disease. This test accurately measures both the density and number of lipoprotein particles (LPP).
