Nutrigenomics is the study of how your genetic variants influence your ability to metabolise nutrients found in the foods and drinks you consume. This information provides an overview of the metabolic efficiency of key nutrients that provide protection from developing health problems.
For optimal health, your body needs the right balance of nutrients, environment and lifestyle in order to function properly. Think of your genes as nature – your inherited ability – and your environment and lifestyle as nurture. This means that the wrong habits and food choices can contribute to symptoms which is often the early warning signs of health problems developing.
Genes don’t determine disease on their own. Your genes are controlled by and respond to the daily choices you make.
Genes function only by being activated, or expressed, and nutrition plays a critical role in determining which genes, good and bad, are expressed.
