With the sequencing of the Human Genome in 2003 we have learned that humans have 3 billion DNA bases (A,T, G, C), 30,000 genes distributed in 23 pairs of chromosomes, which are 99.9% similar between individuals and that the differences between weight, height, eye or hair color corresponds to only 0.1% of the genome.
The most common type of genetic variation among people are the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (or SNPs pronounced ‘snips’). A SNP is a change in a single DNA nucleotide (A, T, G, C) and these variations in the sequences can affect how we develop diseases and respond to pathogens, toxicants, medication, physical activity and diet.
Nutrigenomics is the area of nutrition that studies how nutrients affect the way we express our genes and how individual genetic differences influence our response to food. Nutrigenomics is an approach to understanding the relationship between diet and health and ensure that everyone benefits from the genomic revolution.
Nutrigenext proposes a personalised nutrition plan to help you improve your health, your lifestyle or achieve your physical targets. We tailor an individual diet, physical activity or supplement intake advice based on the person’s genetic variants, their requirements and goals. Instead of providing generic advice such as ‘five fruits a day’ our personalised nutrition approach uses gene data to make a plan relevant for each individual. We want to understand the relationship between diet and health and ensure that everyone benefits from the genomic revolution.
