DNA is the code of the human body that contains the genetic material and gives us important information about the course of our health. Genes are segments of DNA, which in conjunction with the environment; determine our appearance, the construction of our body, personality and behavior, the state of our health and sometimes the conditions in which we are vulnerable.
“Nutrigenomics” is the science that deals with the molecular diet and is associated with the prevention of various diseases. People with different genes respond differently to foods and their ingredients. It is known that the diet affects the homeostasis. The Nutrigenomics aims widely to identify genes that are associated with the diet and increase the risk of various diseases and help prevent them. It also helps to understand the different mechanisms behind the genetic predisposition. Gene diet is the diet which is specialized and is determined by our personal genotype based on knowledge of the nutritional needs of our body.
While a few years ago such information belonged to the “sphere of fantasy“, there are now already, in daily practice, Gene DNA Tests that give us information on the diet that suits us and show the predisposition to common diseases which through proper nutrition and personal habits (lifestyle) can be prevented (primary prevention).
The value of these Tests is very important, regarding prevention, because anyone can, through proper personalized Gene, improve his organization in important areas of healthcare, such us:
Significant improvement is observed in people who have chronic fatigue syndrome, a common phenomenon nowadays, as well as in the area of fitness in people who do sports either professionally, or not.
All these are achieved by applying the appropriate personal Gene Diet and taking the necessary vitamin formulations, antioxidants and minerals, which may be then recommended by the Nutrigenomics analysis: that means by an absolutely natural way!
In our country the DNA “Cellf” Test of the American Society of Genetics and Biotechnology Sciona Inc. is already applied, which controls 30 genes associated with these health areas and provides information on prevention, always on a personal level.
It is emphasized that the control of genes with the Test does not indicate disease, or sickness but the predisposition of each organization, depending on polymorphisms in genes that may show.
Our future holds continuously new data on all of these issues, diagnostics and therapeutics. We’ve realized that regarding medicine we are in the century of Genes, and benefits depend on the correct management of the information provided to us.
Our age is characterized by significant developments in science with peak the decoding of human DNA and the use of such information in everyday life.
