Code Nutrition

Design a vitamin that matches your unique DNA.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

NO LONGER AVAILABLE; DECEMBER 2012

Code Nutrition is a vitamin company that designs supplements just for your genetic code. As part of this program, you complete a health survey as well as send in samples of your DNA to the Code Nutrition researchers who will analyze your genetic make-up. The DNA samples you provide are nothing more than special cotton swabs you swipe on the inside of your cheek. Based upon the results of your sample, you will receive custom-made supplements that contain an array of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and herbal extracts that reflect the findings analyzed in your DNA test kit.

The science behind Code Nutrition is a combination of two new fields of study: Nutrigenomics, which is the study of the effect of both diet and genetics on overall health and examines changes in protein production and metabolism based on nutritional intake; and nutrigenetics, which examines genetic differences among individuals and combines nutritional and dietary changes to attempt to augment overall health. Code Nutrition utilizes both nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics to provide customized nutritional solutions for health-conscious individuals.

PRO
  • Code Nutrition is an advanced combination of technology and nutrition science
  • Provides tailored products that are specific to your genetic make-up
CON
  • Vitamin and mineral supplementation typically only needed if a balanced diet isn't being consumed

CONCLUSION

Code Nutrition is one of the newer companies that is capitalizing on the advanced technology of DNA testing and nutrition science. While there is no harm in having personalized vitamins made for yourself, there is still little science to support that these kind of tailored products are necessary and beneficial to one’s health especially if you take a multivitamin, eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
