When it comes to athletic performance, we all have a limited amount of time to develop our physical faculties. No matter your goal, whether it is improving endurance, strength, or power, understanding your DNA can optimize the process.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how your genetic variants influence your ability to metabolize nutrients. The information in the Nutrition Report provides an overview of the metabolic efficiency of key nutrients that support the recovery of your body after exercise.
What is included?
Speed and Power
Your speed and power ceiling is limited by your genetics, muscle morphology, and anthropometrics. Understanding how your genetics impacts your speed and power ceiling will enable you to set expectations around your program and assist you in prioritizing your training efforts.
There are multiple factors that influence injury risk, including training and physical techniques, and your genetics. Knowing how your genetic variants influence your injury risks can help you tailor your training to lower these risks with proper form and strength training.
The recovery period is when your body adapts the most – but the amount of recovery you’ll need depends on your goals, your unique physiology, and your DNA. Understanding how much recovery time you require is crucial to keeping your tissues and muscles happy, as well as performing to the best of your abilities.
Your mental capabilities can play a big role in sport performance. Your DNA can influence how your mental performance compares with your athletic performance. Understanding your tendencies can help you to initiate discussions with your coach or your peers and start to understand athlete diversity.
Using DNA data to understand how efficiently your body responds to and uses the vitamins that you consume every day can empower you to tailor your diet to your specific nutritional needs. With these insights, you will learn how to improve your intake of water-soluble vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins, Vitamin D, and much more.
Minerals are an essential part of your diet that are used to build bones and teeth, send signals through your nervous system, and trigger contractions in your muscles. Improve your understanding of your body’s response to major minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, electrolytes like sodium, and potassium, and the trace minerals like copper and iron.
Macronutrients are the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that your body uses for energy and the building blocks of your cells. Poor metabolism, caused by genetic variants or overeating, can impact the usage and storage of macronutrients and potentially impact your health and wellbeing.
Certain foods can react with your body in undesirable ways, by being difficult to digest or by kicking your immune system into action. Find out if your genetic variants make you sensitive to your diet.
