The #BCMO1 gene encodes the beta-carotene 15,15'-monooxygenase protein which cleaves beta-carotene symmetrically to yield two molecules of retinal. Polymorphisms in this #gene can affect serum #retinol concentration. In other words: this mutation may cause you to have lower retinol levels. #eyehealth ..more
The human genome is a string of over 3 billion chemical letters that spell out every inherited trait. Although the letters of all our genomes are virtually identical and have little variation, more and more frequently, nature gets a letter wrong, similar to a typo. Scientists call these genetic misspellings SNPs (Pronounced: snips), or single nucleotide polymorphisms, which occur as variations at a single site in DNA. In fact, a SNP is the most frequent variation in the human genome with about 5-10 million of them. Although not all of these disparities contribute to disease. Scientists are now using them ... ..more
This enzyme is part of the cytochrome P450 system (liver) and is specifically involved in the detoxification of xenoestrogens. Avoiding xenoestrogens is important for everyone, but especially with a homozygous mutation. ..more
"Adrenal Fatigue" is a term that you hear a lot in the health community, but what is it exactly? In this article you'll learn the causes of adrenal fatigue, how it can impact how you feel, and what you can do about it!
Your adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys and regulate many critical hormonal jobs in your body. One of those jobs is the secretion of your body's main stress hormone, cortisol. Our bodies have been designed for stressful events, and throughout time they have adapted to them. If our ancestors were chased by a ... ..more
Epigenetics is the study of how the environment and/or methylation pathway influences gene function and gene expression. Methylation is the biochemical community that your DNA resides within and which substantially impacts health and illness. Epigenetics is multifactorial and evaluates the environmental impact of diet, supplementation, infection, stressors, and medical treatment as well as pollution and other toxic exposures on health status and disease outcomes.
One of the most intriguing aspects of this evolving field of science is the fact that many other issues impact genetic expression without actually altering the genetic configuration.
In the early 1990’s, Duke University ... ..more
Nutrigenomics is the study of how food and supplements, and the nutrients therein, may impact our health and well-being. Biomolecular Nutrigenomics is the medical application of this science and is founded upon our personal health issues, unique genetic blueprint and prior risks and exposures. In essence, it is the ultimate personalized treatment program.
Since there are numerous ways in which the food we eat or the supplements we take may prove harmful, this makes it crucial to study these food-gene interactions more extensively. Most realize that consuming highly refined, processed foods contributes to obesity. Yet what about the seemingly inconsequential ... ..more
