Nutrigenomics - $450
Nutrigenomics uses genomic tools and information to address issues important to nutrition and health. The main goal of nutrigenomics is to prevent chronic disease by examining how the interaction between genes and diet can positively influence human health. The protein products of our genes (enzymes, transporters, receptors, hormones etc.) interact with components of the food we eat to influence our nutritional status. Genetic variation results in multiple versions of genes, which can lead to differences in the amount of proteins produced and how efficiently proteins function. Genetic differences can affect how we respond to the foods we eat, giving each of us our own specific nutritional needs.
