Epigenetics and Nutrigenomics
Your genetic blueprint makes you unique as an individual; however, genetics are not static and unchangeable in the way they are expressed and how they affect your internal environment. Genes can be activated or deactivated by behaviors and environment, such as what you eat and how physically active you are. Choosing what type of food, supplementation, exercise, and even typical social and work environment is healthiest for your individual genome is important for optimal health and wellbeing. This can be read in your epigenome.
Lifestyle factors such as nutrition, behavior, stress, physical activity, social environment. working habits, alcohol or cannabis consumption can all alter how are genes are activated or deactivated, and are able to perform their normal functioning. Certain lifestyle and social choices may be highly impactful for individuals according to the coding of their epigenetics. Lifestyle guidance and advice can be tailored appropriately to suit each individual in maintenance of optimal health.
Epigenomics is the study of the effects of food and nutrients on gene expression, and how genetic variations affect the nutritional environment. This helps determine what specific nutrients or dietary regimes may be best for an individual. Personalized nutrition and dietary plans and recommendations tailored to an individuals particular needs can be helpful to gain the most direct and targeted approach to maintaining optimal health.
