Nutrigenomics: The new way forward for your nutritional needs?

Nutrigenomics

It sometimes confusing when one is bombarded with disparate views on various health topics. For example, one minute we are told that coffee is good for us, the next we are told that it is bad. What the…!? Okay, confusing is not the right word…maybe frustrating? Annoying? Sort it out Mr. Scientist? You get my point.

I’m about to present to you a fascinating way to discover the benefits of foods catered specifically for you (soon), yes you the individual! Well, it’s nothing really to do with me. I came across an interview conducted by Dr. John Berardi where he interviewed Dr. El-Sohemy in regards to ‘Nutrigenomics’. I found it so interesting I had to publish the article here.

Here’s an extract from the email I received from Dr.Berardi:


For example, what if I were to tell you that:

- Coffee reduces your risk of heart disease by 3x,
if you have one very specific gene

- However, if you have the opposite gene, your risk
goes up 10x

Also, what if I were to tell you that:

- Fish oil lowers blood lipids (like triglycerides),
if you have one very specific gene

- However, if you have the opposite gene, you don’t
get the same benefits

In addition, what if I were to tell you that:

- 3-5 cups of green tea per day is highly
beneficial, if you have one very specific gene

- However, if you have the opposite gene, you’ll
only need 1-2 cups for the same benefits

Well, I’m going to be telling you all of these things – and
more – in the following interview, an interview that
promises to change the way you view nutrition.

So without further to do, here’s the link:

P.S. I highly recommend Dr. Berardi’s ‘Precision Nutrition’ programme for weight loss/gain and healthier eating recipes.

    My problem is how much it will cost to get the individual genetic profiling done.

    Is this just health for the wealthy?

    Evan,

    I hope it’s not “just health for the wealthy” or most of us will be unable to benefit from this new technology. However, I think it is fair to surmise that as soon as the big companies discover the technology, it will become a mass sales campaign, hence a lower price.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to share a great new health-conscious sparkling juice that I found! It’s called Picabi. Has anyone else tried it yet?

    Picabi takes the benefits of wholesome gourmet fruit, a full spectrum of health-defending vitamins and minerals and makes it taste soooooo good!

    I give it to my kids to bring to school for lunches, and my husband and I drink it every day.

    Their website is http://www.picabi.com and you can use the store locator to find a retailer all over the U.S.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has tried Picabi?
