Nutrigenomics: New Approach to Personalized Nutrition Based on Genetic Information

///Nutrigenomics: New Approach to Personalized Nutrition Based on Genetic Information

nutrigenomicsThe relationship of genes and nutrition is one of the hottest areas of research worldwide. The goal of the scientific community is to find the way to match our nutritional intakes with our genetic background to achieve maximum health.

To understand the potential of this method, let’s take a walk in the future, and possibly in the near future. Let’s imagine that in some years from now the state of your health forces you to correct your diet and form more good eating habits.

You visit a clinical dietitian specializing in nutrigenomcs, i.e. a science which studies the relationship between nutrition and genes. He receives and examines your genetic card, which contains all the information about your genetic material.

This information is your genetic profile. From the collected data, the scientist comes up with nutritional recommendations and guidelines, which are perfectly tailored for you. Thus you get a personalized diet plan based on your specific genetic requirements, which balances perfectly your needs for the macro – and micronutrients and is able to significantly improve the health problems you are experiencing.

Your prescription for the coming months is unique; even if someone has similar health problems, he will probably receive different instructions, which will be in accordance with his own genetic profile.

This fictional scenario is expected to be technically possible in the future. Of course, it requires further development of scientific research, but it is an attractive and very probable option for the expected impact of genetic studies on our eating habits and behaviors.
