Genetics and Nutrition
Nutritional Genomics is the study of how foods affect gene expression and how individual genetic variation affects the way an individual responds to nutrients in foods. Nutrigenomics uses genetics to determine a person's exact nutrtional requirements and is the core of preventative care to acheive overall wellness.
You cannot change your genes but you can control how your genes get expressed. The principals behind Nutrigenomics include:
You can greatly improve your health and wellness by changing certain environental factors to which you expose your body. Nutrition impacts every cell in your body, including the cells in your eyes, and incorporating the right types and amounts of certain bioactives in your diet combined with the right types of exercise can improve your overall health. Genetic Testing focuses on gene variations that may play a role in how your body responds to certain foods and your risk for common diseases.
