NutriSport
Test description
athlete

This test focuses on the study of certain variants of the genome that determine the body's response to nutrients. Genetic variation affects the individual's response to food. The diet of the athlete must be balanced (both in energy intake and in nutrients), varied and adapted to their needs.

The regulation of energy intake is a vitally important process in the body, since it makes it possible to maintain the balance between the amount of energy that is stored in the form of fat in the body and the use of it. Any physical exercise produces an increase in energetic consumption proportional to its intensity and duration, which will require a considerable supplementary energetic contribution. Micronutrients participate in certain physiological processes related to sports performance.

The lack of physical activity is one of the main risk factors for developing obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and even cancer. Regular moderate physical activity has a multitude of health benefits and helps to prevent these diseases.

We analyze different genetic variants, which are selected based on the information gathered from various scientific publications and meta-analysis, related to:

  • Practice of physical exercise and weight control
  • Food behavior:
    • Appetite
    • Satiety
    • Predilection for certain foods
  • Energy sources:
    • Carbohydrates and glucose homeostasis
    • Lipids, adipogenesis and storage of fatty acids
  • Micronutrients
    • Vitamins
    • Minerals
    • Antioxidant substances
  • Stimulants: caffeine
Targets

The results obtained in this genetic analysis are useful for certain professionals (medicine, nutrition, sports...) to help adjust certain lifestyle habits. This can improve health or help achieve certain objectives:

  • Adoption of healthy eating habits, adapted to the type of physical activity developed, using the nutrigenetic advice tables present in the results report, in order to maintain or improve body weight and health, or achieve certain sport goals.
  • Adequacy of physical activity to control body weight and maintain an active life that prevents certain pathologies.
