The 3 Steps Behind Creating Your Analysis


Gather The Research

At GenoPalate, we study many different genes related to nutrition. First, we use research that connects how certain genes relate to what we eat. These studies show how people with specific genetic variants can change things like their weight or cholesterol levels by adjusting what they eat. They also tell us how quickly people with certain genetic variants can clear substances such as alcohol and caffeine from their bodies.

We only use the highest-quality, peer-reviewed research studies to inform our recommendations so we can give you the most accurate recommendations possible.


Analyze Your Genes

Next, we compare your genes with these studies to see what makes you different. We figure out what nutrients you might need more or less of, how fast your body breaks down alcohol and caffeine, and if you might be sensitive to gluten or lactose.

For example, one study found that people with a certain genetic variant decreased their waist size when following a high-protein diet. So, when we get your DNA data, we check if you have the same genetic variants as the people who saw this effect in the study. If you do, we suggest you eat more protein.

We look at over 150 genes like this to create your special diet suggestions based on your genes.


Determine Your Optimal Foods

Then, we match your nutrition recommendations with the nutrient content of the foods in our extensive database. This helps us give you a list of foods just for you.

These foods are special because they consider all your genetic-based diet suggestions for carbs, fat, protein, vitamins, and minerals.

For example, if your genes say you need moderate potassium, low sodium, and lots of fiber, foods with these qualities will be at the top of your list.

We encourage you to explore your GenoPalate results and learn about your gene details. See what nutrients you need more or less of and what health benefits are linked to your genes.

Even small changes in what we eat can make a big difference in how we feel and our overall health.

We hope you enjoy learning about your results and how they are personalized to your genes.
