List of Ingredients
Ingredients vary by product.
The program does a gene analysis in patients who decide to take the supplements. Their non-invasive process of obtaining cells for the DNA analysis involves a simple swab of the patients inside cheek. The patient orders a kit and does the swab themselves. The kit also includes a questionnaire with questions about the patient’s eating habits and lifestyle habits. The questionnaire and DNA is analyzed by a panel who then determines what combination of supplements the patient should take.
In the weight management area, NutraMetrix has 12 different products available. 4 of these products are instructional videos, audio CDs, a kit, and a website subscription but the other 8 are various products such as the Fat Conversion Inhibitor, Thermochrome, prepackaged snacks, and more.

NutraMetrix is taking a step toward the future of beauty products by offering custom supplement packages based on your unique genetic makeup. The problem we see is that they don’t really offer enough products on their official website to cover such a wide range. The DNA kit isn’t invasive but many people aren’t going to be comfortable turning their DNA over to a corporation they don’t know much about either. Some of the NutraMetrix products can be purchased without the DNA kit being used so we would try some of those out first.
