Ensuring nutritional wellness at a personalized level
Metabolic health is built on five key pillars. The first three have been known for years: our genetic substrate, that is, our genes, whether we get proper nutrition, and whether we do the exercise we need almost daily. In recent years, however, two other key factors of metabolic health have been added to the literature: well-structured fasting and the consumption of very specific foods that have proven to improve metabolic health.
Modern literature shows that the role of genes is not as important as we thought, since its effect is limited to 15%. All the rest is regulated by proper fasting, proper nutrition and exercise. Foodoxys’ philosophy is founded on this important scientific finding. After about 20 years of research in the research laboratory of the Department of Biochemistry-Biotechnology of the University of Thessaly, Professor D. Kouretas and his colleagues decided that they now had the information from nearly 200 articles they had published in international literature and several others by other research groups, to move on to the next step, the practical application of the acquired scientific knowledge to the service of humans, with the creation of FoodOxys. With special tests performed on a drop of blood, FoodOxys’ scientists look in detail at the expression of critical genes related to antioxidant defense, anti-inflammatory potential, and the body’s basic cellular defense mechanism. Having developed algorithms, they create a general framework for every person, including the way they should be fed and trained on a daily basis. The adjustments required take approximately 4 weeks. In a month a second blood sampling takes place and the scientists measure the changes in critical genes, showing how the person’s metabolic health has changed; a very useful tool in the hands of doctors, dieticians and ultimately people themselves. That is, now in a very specific way, one can see what changes in his genes at the level of expression after a period of targeted nutrition and physical activity.
This information will accompany him for the rest of his life, helping him lead a healthy lifestyle. It is advisable to repeat the test 2-3 times a year to make sure the beneficial effects of his diet on his metabolism are maintained.
But what are these tests? There are three levels of measurement. Find more details here (www.foodoxys.com)
