Introducing GeneWize LifeMap Nutrition™ System
All of us have unique nutritional needs. Everyone at some point will feel the effects of aging, but some of us will come down with lifestyle related conditions such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, and even Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases much sooner than others. In addition, we all have a different response to how our bodies respond to food, physical activity, and environmental stresses such as exposure to chemicals in our environment, pollution and sun damage. These differences that can lead some of us to experience premature damage to our skin and health can be attributed to the small variations in our genes that make us unique individuals.
It is known that oxygen free radicals have a damaging effect on the body. This effect is even more profound in those that have a genetic predisposition to the effects of oxidative stress. Scientific research has shown that consuming fruits and vegetables with a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value may help slow the aging process. The ORAC value is a method of measuring the ability of foods and other substances to reduce oxygen free radicals. A recent study done at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston showed that rats fed a diet high in ORAC activity, such as spinach, strawberries, and blueberries, showed an increase in the level of antioxidants in their blood and were protected against damage to their capillaries and to their long-term memory and learning ability.

I recently came across an innovative company that has been in the news. The name of the company is GeneWize, a subsidiary of Gene Link, a publicly traded company. The GeneWize LifeMap Nutrition™ System is the first scientifically supported nutritional supplement program that utilizes YOUR DNA to create a custom nutritional supplement formula that contains the nutrients your body really needs. The LifeMap nutrition is formulated just for you based on an analysis of your specific DNA. The custom tailored GeneWize nutritional supplements are high in the antioxidants and phytonutrients that your body needs. GeneWize LifeMap Nutrition™ also has a high ORAC value.
These customized products were formerly only available at expensive spas. Now everyone can benefit from 100% product personalization based on a personal DNA assessment. For more information on this innovative company, visit: http://www.yourbetterhealth.dnawellnesssolutions.com/ .
