If you want to maximise your potential for healthy living and ageing, the secret may lie in your genes. Your genes can’t be changed, but you can turn them on and off by making the right dietary choices. If you know your genes, you can make more informed decisions about your diet to maximise your health.
It is well known that good nutrition is essential for a healthy lifestyle, as it affects growth and development, health and wellbeing. There are seven major classes of nutrients; carbohydrates, fats, fibre, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and water. A healthy diet needs a balanced consumption of all these nutrients.
Each of our reports is supported by nutritional requirements underpinned from the Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand. Further information can be found by visiting https://www.nrv.gov.au/
