What is your AMY 1 Gene?
AMY1 is a gene that produces the enzyme amylase.
What is Amylase?
Amylase is found in our saliva and plays a major role in the digestion of starch, which is a carbohydrate found in grains, legumes, fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Amylase begins the process of carbohydrate metabolism in the mouth. 50% of bread starch and 25% of pasta starch is broken down during the short chewing time of 19 to 27 secs.

- Are you 800% more likely to be overweight or obese
- How effectively do you metabolise and tolerate carbohydrates
- How effectively do you metabolise and tolerate gluten
- Do carbohydrates put you at an increased risk of being overweight
- Do carbohydrates put you at an increased risk of having diabetes
- How many grams of carbohydrates can you eat per day
- What type of carbohydrates should you avoid
