Whenever you become a new parent, nothing means more to you than the health of your baby. It has been over ten years since the birth of my last child, and I remember the technology in place to determine so many things about her future and well-being. For years, people in the medical field have always been looking for ways to help better the future of our kids. Starting on October 20th, there’s a new Indiegogo page being launched, which is expected to be the future of the healthcare for babies from Baby Nome, which is called Neutrogenomics (Nutrition and Genetics). They just use the salive of your child as a sample; Baby Nome analyzes DNA information to identify particular genetic characteristics that are know for predisposing an individual and breaks it down into five different reports: Vitamins, Minerals, Metabolism, Allergies and Well-Being.
Baby Nome analyzes your child’s genes for potential deficiencies on 17 vitamins and carotenoids and provides you the suggested diets to ensure your child gets the right amount of vitamins. Vitamins are critical to the healthy growth of your child, but some children may require higher doses of vitamins due to potential genetic-based deficiencies.
Baby Nome provides you with an analysis of your child’s processing of 11 key minerals and supplements, which are calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, copper, selenium, glutathione, omega-3 & omega-6 and coenzyme Q10. Just like vitamins, minerals help your child’s body grow, develop and stay healthy. the body uses minerals to perform many different functions- from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses. Some minerals are even used to make hormones or maintain a normal heartbeat.
Baby Nome offers an analysis of 12 key metabolism and diet traits for your child, which is weight gain, three obesity traits, five taste traits and three other metabolism traits. Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical reactions within the cells of living organisms. These reactions allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures and respond to their environments.
Baby Nome uses the result of more than 4000 peer-reviewed cutting edge scientific studies linking more than 2071 generic mutations to more than 150 nutritional and well-being traits and provides personalized reports for babies, toddlers and children from 12 months to 7 years of age. If you have a child between the ages of 1 to 7 years old, try this out because it starts at $99, which is cheap to get so much helpful analysis of your child. If that isn’t enough for you to try this out, now they’re offering 50 early registration reports for $49, but that doesn’t include the DNA testing fee of $100. Also, they’re offering a parent version through their family package, which you can check out more on the Indiegogo page.
