Nutrigenomics: Genetic diet
Nutrigenomics is an emerging multidisciplinary science and the study of how foods affect our genes and how individual genetic differences can affect the way we respond to nutrients in the foods we eat.
Relation of Gene type with Health:
For optimal health, you need to match your particular genotype with the most gene- supportive environment (GSE) you can create. You do that through what you eat, how you exercise and how you response to stress, which is largely determined by how you think. We are unique individuals in every way, even when it comes to our personal daily dietary requirements. Knowing this, food can be used as nutritional medicine if we eat appropriate foods in the correct amounts. One diet does not fit all.
Adopt the lifestyle habits and nutritional practices best suited to our individual needs. The key is to know which form of the gene you carry, so that you can make diet and lifestyle choices to best reduce your health risks.
A personalised plan for your genotype your gene-supportive environment will guide you in choosing the optimal:
1. Fat content, with the correct types of fats
2. Carbohydrate content, with the correct types of carbohydrates.
3. Protein content, with the correct types of protein.
