NUTRIGENETICS & NUTRIGENOMICS

Nutrigenetics, as the name implies, is the detection of genes that have an inference on diet. Taking or
removing specific foods from the diet as well as the adjusting the style of preparing foods, for which a
polymorphic gene has been found, can have an effect on health and promote longevity. This is
Nutrigenomics. A specific dietary recipe can be prescribed to optimise the beneficial effects of foods.
Prior to gene testing, there has not been a diagnostic tool available to personalize dietary health
requirements. Simply eating a well balanced diet may be harmful due to specific genetic polymorphisms.
Nutrigenomics develops the concept of a person specific gene recipe.
