Do you know that you have 2 “ages”? Chronological age is the age of a person as measured from birth to a given date. Your Body Age or your Biological Age denotes how your body has aged health-wise compared to your chronological age. Your body age (biological age) is not dependent on how many birthdays you’ve […]
What is Gene Expression? Our genes define our potential, our limitations, and our predispositions to disease. Our DNA sequence is inherited from our parents and this cannot be changed. However, the expression of our genes is responsive and can be changed and it is influenced by epigenetics – our lifestyle, including our diet, physical exercise, […]
Immunity is a word used to describe how our immune systems make antibodies to protect us from infections. Making antibodies to a bacteria or virus is a process our bodies undergo naturally after we’ve been sick. But one of the best ways we can create immunity is through vaccines. A vaccine teaches our immune systems […]
Can Taking Food Supplements Modulate mRNA and Mediate Gene Expression for Degenerative Diseases? The Latest Findings.
In recent years the importance of molecular nutrition as a potential determinant of health and diseases has been highlighted and endorsed as a result of clinical research in the growing number of studies . The focus of the studies has been centred on the interaction between nutrition and gene expression in impacting health outcomes. In […]
