Nutrigenomics: New Era of Disease Management

People with metabolic disorders or inherited disease have variations and mutations in their genes: each person has a genetic variation. Vulnerability to the disease and performance of our metabolism depend on variations in our genes. How many nutrients that we need to prevent disease and achieve optimal health may be unique to each person, ex: our phenotype and our personality.

Specific sets of genes and our DNA called the genome. Each individual genomeis is unique, even though we share a lot with others. An emerging new science called nutrigenomics focuses on the interaction between nutrition and genes.The main objective is to make your diet match to your genetic.With personalized nutritional advice, each person is expected to live longer and less 'saving' of disease. So, in this way, we can life longer with a better quality of life.
