Nutrition refers to the process by which we use food to support life and living.

 People with healthy eating patterns live longer and are at lower risk for serious health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Furthermore, for people with chronic diseases, healthy eating can help manage these conditions and prevent complications.

The Advanced Nutritional Test is the only test that combines the study of your genes and your biochemical parameters related to metabolism and nutrition, allowing you to know your nutritional needs for optimal health and disease prevention. This holistic approach allows you to determine which diet is most appropriate for you.

  • Symptoms related to poor nutrition include
  • Obesity
  • Tooth decay
  • High blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • Heart disease/Stroke
  • Type-2 diabetes
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Osteoporosis
  • Some cancers
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders

Nutrients

To assure confidence in our results and to make the same suitable for legal purposes, paternity testing in SYNLAB is a tightly controlled process. The conditions which need to be complied with include

Vitamins

Vitamins are a group of different types of organic molecules crucial for regulating metabolic processes. Even though we only need small quantities of vitamins, we cannot synthesise them completely by ourselves nor produce sufficient quantities. For this reason, it is necessary to obtain them through dietary sources. Natural foods of plant and animal origin, such as fruits, eggs or milk, are important sources of these types of molecules.

Minerals and essential trace elements

These natural non-organic elements represent between 4 to 5% of the body weight and are involved in the maintenance of many functions, such as bone formation, heart rate regulation and hormone production, among many others.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates, also known as sugars, are the body’s main source of energy. Simple carbohydrates provide us with immediate energy, while complex carbohydrates ensure a more sustained energy supply. In addition to serving as an energy source, they participate in the biosynthesis of fatty acids and certain amino acids and provide us with dietary fibre.

Fats

Lipids or fats are a heterogeneous group of organic compounds with highly diverse activities within the body. They participate in structural, regulatory, transport and energy functions, providing more than twice as much energy as carbohydrates. In addition, they can be stored in large quantities to be used as energy reservoirs.

Proteins

These are the building blocks of life. They are important for growth, development and repair. They make up the major organs, including the heart, muscle, brain, bone and skin. They are the enzymes, hormones, receptors and transport molecules that are important for the regulation of all body processes.

Dietary fibre

This is also known as roughage. It is the portion of plant food that cannot be completely broken down by the digestive enzymes or absorbed. They pass relatively intact through the intestinal tract. Asides from helping in relieving constipation, they also help in reducing the risk for certain chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer.

Who is this test for?

Advanced Nutritional Test is recommended for:

  • Anyone who wishes to improve their wellbeing through diet.

 

Why is it important to manage my weight?

Obesity and being overweight are caused by an accumulation of fat due to the excessive uptake of energy through the diet. This accumulation of fat is not only problematic from an aesthetic point of view but also increases the risk of different health problems, such as diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer, among many others.
