NUTRIGENOMICS: YOUR GENES, YOUR FOOD AND YOU!
Are you confused by all the conflicting nutritional information out there? One day coffee’s bad for you, the next day it’s good. What if it wasn’t just the coffee but the way your individual genes interacted with that coffee? Wouldn’t it be great to know how that coffee affects you, personally?
Welcome to the world of NUTRIGENOMICS – the science that explores the influence food and nutrients have on our genetic expression. The food we eat is much more than calories, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It’s information. Information that gets translated into cellular instructions that can turn certain genes on or off and move us along the path towards disease or towards health.
The one-size-fits all approach to health doesn’t really work. Testing our genes provides a fascinating and completely personalized glimpse into our bodies and how they work. We can look at our genetic predispositions to how we metabolize specific nutrients, our tendency towards inflammation or factors that affect heart health, even our response to stress. With this information we can be empowered to undertake deliberate food and lifestyle modifications and changes targeted specifically at our own unique DNA that can optimize our health.
Join us for the next installment of our Studio Talks series where functional nutritionist Jill Hillhouse will delve into how your genes can affect your nutritional status and your overall health. The talk will cover:
What do genetic markers tell us about health?
How do the foods we eat affect our genes?
How do we know what genes we have?
