The technology we use in meyo is based on the nutrigenética Metigentity tool, developed with the Laboratory of Molecular Biology Nutrition and Biotechnology of the University of the Balearic Islands. The research group of this laboratory, Nutrigenomics and Obesity, directed by Prof. Andreu Palou, focuses on the study of the mechanisms of body weight control and its alterations in obesity, in the control of energy homeostasis by nutrients and in aspects related to food safety and quality. Prof. Palou is an international reference in the context of research centers in Nutrigenetics and Personalized Nutrition.
Meyo Nutrition and Sports Kit is a service based on nutrigenetic test that analyzes characteristics present in the individual DNA and allows estimating the genetic predisposition to suffer from obesity and / or related diseases; It also allows defining dietary, sports and lifestyle guidelines more personalized to achieve specific objectives. The knowledge of gene variants (polymorphisms), their role in the control of body weight and their relationship with certain foods / nutrients allows the guidelines for a personalized diet to be established, helping to improve eating habits and quality of life .
