The Houstonian is excited to announce that our registered dietitian, E. Denise Hernandez, is now offering an exciting new service called Nutrigenomix. It is a simple genetic test using your saliva that will allow for personalized nutrition recommendations that are based on your DNA!
Nutrigenomix Inc. is a University of Toronto biotechnology company that moves genetic studies from the laboratory into the clinic. Nutrigenomix works with their International Science Advisory Board, which consists of global leaders in the field of nutrigenomix, and have developed a panel of 7 genetic tests that enable your registered dietitian to provide you with personalized nutritional recommendations based on your DNA. When it comes to your diet, a one-size-fits all approach may not lead to optimal health. Research has shown that personalized dietary advice based on your DNA is more valuable than general population-based recommendations.
Nutrigenomix has developed a safe, easy-to-use kit that enables your registered dietitian to develop a dietary plan that is tailored to your unique genetic profile. You can expect to have results within 2 weeks. A simple DNA test will get you started down the path to eating according to your genes!
For more information, stop by the Nutrition Table, which will be set up in the Rotunda on July 7th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm or contact Denise directly at
