Nutrigenomics & Nutrigenetics
Nutrigenomics, also known as nutritional genomics, is a branch of science that studies the relationship between the human genome, nutrition, overall health, and wellness. According to nutrigenomics, different foods can affect the gene expression, the process by which instructions from a gene are utilized in the biosynthesis of a functional gene product, like protein.
Genomics is an interdisciplinary field of biology that focuses on the structure, function, evolution, mapping, and editing of genomes in the human body. Nutrigenomics utilizes that information to create a custom dietary program to help improve a person’s overall health and wellness with food.
Nutrigenetics is also a branch of science that focuses on how the human body responds to nutrients based on their genetic variation. Due to the differences in people’s DNA, the absorption, transportation, and metabolization, among other functions of nutrients can be different from one person to the other. People can have similar characteristics based on their genes but these genes are actually not identical when this happens it is known as genetic variation.
