About NutriGen

Компанията NutriGen

We are a startup company in the field of Nutrigenomics, aiming to facilitate people in Bulgaria in their efforts to improve quality of life by providing information about their DNA profile. We believe that the more we understand about ourselves and how our bodies function, the better we can follow our individual path to our best health and physical performance.

Today we know that our DNA hides the key to our optimal nutrition and training regime. If we find out that we are genetically at a higher risk of developing diseases such as atherosclerosis, reduced bone density, type II diabetes, etc., we will have the chance to change our lifestyle early in order to significantly reduce the risks and take care of our health in the future. We will be able to do our best for the health of our children if we are aware of their genetic predispositions from the beginning.
