Personalized Nutrition and Fertility

Research shows that the nutritional status of both women and men can impact fertility. We also know that specific variations in our genes can explain why some of us respond differently from others to the same foods, beverages and supplements we consume. This genetic test is tailored to information relating to how your food intake and lifestyle choices may impact your fertility.
