Personalised nutrition explained

Personalised nutrition explained

Personalised nutrition is a term you might have heard thrown about, but what actually is it and how can it benefit you? Read our guide and try our personalised nutrition quiz to find out.
 

What is personalised nutrition?


Personalised nutrition is built on the premise that one size doesn’t fit all. This underlying principle of nutritional therapy recognises that we’re unique individuals with varying needs based on genes, age, sex, lifestyle, physical activity, and environmental factors. Harnessing this information means we can use a targeted nutritional approach to improve different areas of health, including immunity, sleep, mood, and cognition. 
 

How can personalised nutrition help me?


Unlike general dietary and lifestyle guidelines – calls to eat more vegetables, do more exercise, and get more sleep – personalised nutrition is rooted in your body’s unique responses. Understanding your specific needs means you can better grasp the food and supplements you should incorporate into a healthy eating plan.

Increasingly, research suggests that a personalised approach is far more effective than general nutrition advice. In a systematic review of 11 studies comparing the effects of personalised nutrition with general dietary advice, researchers found that people were more likely to improve their diets when they received personalised nutrition advice than those who received general guidance (1).

Data even suggests that identical twins, who share the same DNA, have different nutritional needs (2).
