Nutrigenomics is the study of how diet interacts with your genes and how individual genetic differences can affect your requirements and how you respond to vitamins, minerals, and compounds in the foods we eat. Everyone absorbs, metabolizes, and transports chemicals differently based on their genetic makeup; nutrigenomics unlocks this personal blueprint.
Epigenetics refers to chemical tags that attach to the exterior of the genome, changing the way that your cells read and express your genetic material. Understanding DNA vs. epigenetics is similar to understanding nature vs. nurture. DNA is your blueprint, not your destiny. Your genetic results are your nature determined at birth, and these results do not change throughout your lifetime.
However, nurture or epigenetic influences, including your diet, stress levels, relationships, sleep patterns, environment, and exercise, change your genes’ expression. “Good” or “bad” genes are relative to the expression of your genes from your epigenetic choices in life.
The Nutrition Genome Report shows where you need to epigenetically narrow your choices to increase the probability of success for a sound body and mind. Epigenetics gives you control to build a healthier version of yourself, cell by cell!
