What are the benefits of  nutrigenomics and nutrigenetic testing?


What is nutrigenomics?

Nutrigenomics studies the interaction between nutrition and genetics. Nutrigenomics focuses on how nutrients and other compounds in food can affect gene expression. In other words, how genes can be activated or inhibited.

What is nutrigenetics?

Nutrigenetics focuses on how each person’s genetic differences can affect how we process nutrients and how this can affect our health. For example, some people may have a genetic variation that affects the way their body metabolizes caffeine. This means they may experience stronger or weaker effects of this stimulant compared to other people. Similarly, some people may have a genetic variation that increases their risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Dietary genetic testing consists of reading the patient’s DNA and, from this, any polymorphisms (which are called SNPs), which are statistically correlated with an increase in a certain type of risk: obesity, hypertriglycerimia, osteoporosis, intolerances (lactose, gluten), metabolic syndrome, poor detoxification.

For example, one study found that people with a specific variant responded better to a low-fat diet for weight loss than people with another variant. Similarly, there are genes that affect how our body processes fats and carbohydrates, which could affect our ability to maintain a healthy weight. All this information indicates that people could benefit from a personalized diet based on their genetic profile.



Epigenetics, methylation, nutrigenomics

Epigenetics can influence the gene expression (turning genes off and on) without making changes to DNA sequence. Epigenetics is influenced by environmental, lifestyle, drugs, detox, sleep, hormone balance, neurotransmitters balance, weight balance, emotional balance, exercise and supplementation. Examples of body epigenetic processes are methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation. DNA methylation is one of the most studied epigenetic modification. DNA methylation means binding a methyl group to  certain location of DNA.  

Methylation has an important role in: immunity, energy, detox, neurotransmitters function, hormone balance. Conditions affected by methylation are cancer, stroke, heart disease, MS, depression, RA, anemia, preeclamsia, anxiety, insomnia, Parkinson, Chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune. First step is assessing methylation and the providing the necessary support protocol.

Nutrigenetics defined how genes affect individual responses to food. Nutrigenomics how food affects gene expression help identify epigenetic biomarkers. By doing certain nutrigenomics testing we are able to determine the best treatment that support your genetic blueprint that includes: diet, supplements, and lifestyle.

Gene Polymorphism  of MTHFR, CBS, MTRR affect vitamins B absorption. Low level of B6 associated with cardio inflammation, artherosclerosis, increased CRP, cognitive decline. Polymorphism in MTHFR increases folate requirement.

How is your methylation affecting your cardio risk?

How is your methylation affecting birth defects?

How is methylation affecting mental health?

How is methylation affecting homocysteine level?

How are enviromental toxin affect your methylation?

How is your methylation affecting autoimmunity?

What to avoid when MTHFR defect?
