PALMYRA, Wis. (May 18, 2015)—While the “one size fits all” concept may work for accessories such as watches and scarves, nutritional supplement manufacturer Standard Process Inc. knows it doesn’t apply to health and wellness solutions. That’s why the company has developed a new resource for health care professionals to help their patients unlock their own unique wellness potential. NutriSync® Genetic Nutrition and Fitness Assessment is a scientific nutrigenomics tool that provides customized diets, exercise plans and supplement recommendations for patients based on each patient’s genetics and lifestyle.
“The definition of ‘good nutrition and proper exercise’ is different for everyone,” said Mike Scamarcia, who is spearheading commercial innovation at Standard Process. “As we become more aware of how specific nutrients may impact gene expression, it’s important that practitioners have the right tools available to help them support their patients.”
Developed by genetic scientists, genomic nutritionists and fitness professionals, NutriSync is a nutrition, fitness and lifestyle assessment tool that health care practitioners can use to guide their patient’s journey to optimal health and wellness. It works by targeting scientifically researched gene/nutrient and gene/fitness connections, and analyzing genetic variations that have been most associated with an individual’s ability to metabolize specific nutrients and benefit from certain types of exercise.
NutriSync is a convenient at-home system. After receiving a kit from their health care professional, patients register online, complete a lifestyle survey and mail a cheek swab to a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified lab. In less than a month, test results and a specific NutriSync Action plan are provided to the patient and health care professional.
The patient’s action plan will provide an assessment of 45 wellness-focused genetic variations, a tailored analysis of 24 daily dietary and lifestyle habits, and an easy-to-read summary of each genetic variation measured. The health care professional’s plan includes Standard Process supplement recommendations, a long-term focus for patient diet and exercise plans and an overview of the patient’s plan.
