EPIGENETICS AND NUTRIGENOMICS TO SUPPORT OUR DNA
Your health is not predetermined by the genes you inherited. Scientists now know that the kind of lifestyle you live and the food you eat play a huge role in determining how long you will live and how healthy you will be. The choices you make in diet, exercise, and how you deal with stress, control your health much more than the genes you were born with.
Epigenetics is a branch of genetics that describes all of the heritable modifications that vary gene expression while not altering the DNA sequence, and then the hereditary phenomena in which the phenotype is determined not so much by the genotype inherited in itself, but by overlapping the same genotype of an imprint which influences the functional behavior.
A signal is an epigenetic heritable change that does not alter the nucleotide sequence of a gene but alters its activity. Epigenetics is, therefore, the study of heritable phenotypic alterations in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in the genomic sequence, or the study of the molecular mechanisms by which the environment can alter the activity of genes without changing the DNA sequences.
These mutations last as long as the life of the cell and can be transmitted to subsequent generations of cells through cell divisions, again without the corresponding DNA sequences have changed.
Most of the epigenomic modification is realized in the child during the first 2/3 years of life. Some diseases, such as cancer, have an epigenetic basis. A tumor arises when it has an alteration of the genetic material that leads to an increase of the cell turn-over, to an alteration of cell functions
Epigenetics is offering explanations to how our diets, our exposure to toxins, our stress levels at work might be subtly altering the genetic legacy we pass on to our children and grandchildren. It opened up new avenues into explaining and curing illnesses that genes cannot explain alone, ranging from autism to cancer
Ever since the existence of genes was suggested, science has held one idea untouchable that DNA is nature’s blueprint. That chromosome passed from parent to child form a detailed genetic design for development but something is still missing.
It was termed as the epigenome and only in the last few years has research revealed more detail of the vast array of molecular mechanisms that affect the activity of the genes. And that your DNA itself might not be a static, predetermined or programmed, but instead can be modified by these biological markers. Chief among them are what are called methyl groups – tiny carbon-hydrogen instruction packs that bind to a gene.
Methylation is how the cell knows it needs to grow into an eyeball rather than a toenail. In addition, there are also what are called “histones”, controlling how tightly the DNA is spooled around its central thread, and therefore how “readable” the information is. These two epigenetics control as "on-off" switch.
Scientists now know that a bad diet can interfere with this methylation. Which means a cell can grow abnormally? In other words, you get a disease or even cancer. Scientists used to think that these little epigenetic instructions would be left off your DNA before it was passed onto your children. That when a sperm and egg combined, the embryo had a “clean slate”. New research has found that about one to two percent of our epigenetic tags clings on. And thus, smoking and overeating are the ones that can be passed onto your offspring, and even further down the hereditary line.
There is also increasing evidence that certain cancers are caused by misplaced epigenetic tags. So, scientists are developing new drugs to silence the bad genes which were supposed to be silenced in the first place.
Nutrigenomics is the study of the effects of food and food constituents on gene expression, and how genetic variations affect the nutritional environment. It focuses on understanding the interaction between nutrients and other dietary bio-actives with the genome at the molecular level, to understand how specific nutrients or dietary regimes may affect human health.
Our diet is more than just nutrition and calories. The human diet is a language, a means of communication with our DNA. Whether a diet is heavy in vegetables, fiber, and healthy fats, as in a Mediterranean diet, or is high in sugar and trans fats as in the typical Western American diet, each is a language communicating a message with our DNA to influence the very expression of our DNA.
How can a diet that is good or bad effect your body? Well, it depends on what you’re eating. Don’t expect anything but junk from your DNA if you feed it junk. But, feed your body a language of love through broccoli (well, green vegetables) and expect better genetic expression in return.
Whether you are eating well or eating poorly, your diet is certainly in communication with your DNA, and as you heard, it is possible to change the expression of your DNA by what you eat. To block breast cancer growth and progression or to inhibit influenza A, these were both combated by eating certain foods simply found in nature like broccoli or honeysuckle. Food is medicine. Food is prevention. Food is the key to disease or wellness potential.
Considering your diet can change your DNA and gene expression, think twice about the power of food. Nutrigenomics may sound cutting edge, but you already know yourself how powerful food can be.
In the end, you are what you eat. Scientists have discovered that consuming fruits and vegetables of different colors may actually help the body reap different benefits. Also, various studies indicate that most super fruits and vegetables of different colors contain phytonutrients, vitamins minerals, and many others benefit which promotes good health and lower the risk of disease.
AMGenex DNA SwitchOn (Dynamic Nutrition Advantage) is the major breakthrough in modern nutrition science. DNA is the combination of the world’s Best super fruits and vegetables further enhanced by AMized fusion Technology where the ingredients are energized to increase potency and efficacy to help us maintain optimum health and to slow down the aging process.
AMGenex DNA SwitchOn is filled with many antioxidant-rich Superfruits and vegetables such as Acai berries, Goji berries, Camu Camu, Beetroot, Pomegranate, Wild Rosella, Mango, Noni, Luo Han Guo, Mangosteen, Amalaki, Broccoli Sprout, Tasmanian mountain pepper and Apple Stem Cells which provide a wide variety of secondary anti-oxidants and phytonutrients.
These Super Fruits & Vegetables are processed thru a "Freeze Dried" CellActive method by removing the water content (which is almost 90%) and thus maintaining the potency of bio-active ingredients.
