Biosignature was developed by the world renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin (trained Olympic medallists in 12 different sports). It is designed to understand why and where people store body fat as a result of their hormonal profile. Hormonal imbalances can lead to health issues such as weight gain, mental or physical stress and even things as serious as cancer.
The concept is to be able to re-balance hormones and spot reduce body fat dependant on individual needs. For instance, somebody with high insulin levels will store fat on their hips (love handles) this will indicate that there is a high intake of high glycemic carbohydrates and sugars. This person would need a different supplementation and nutritional programme to someone with high estrogen levels (i.e. storing fat on triceps and leg area).
