NUTRIGENOMICS

What is Nutrigenomics?

 

NUTRIGENOMICS is the study of the effects of foods and food constituents (nutrients) on gene expression. It is about how our DNA is transcribed into mRNA and then to proteins and provides a basis for understanding the biological activity of food components.

 

NUTRIGENOMICS has also been described by the influence of genetic variation on nutrition by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with a nutrient’s absorption, metabolism, elimination, or biological effects. By doing so, NUTRIGENOMICS aims to develop rational means to optimize nutrition, with respect to the subject’s genotype.  Research also demonstrates that these nutrient-based compounds can have significant epigenetic influences on genetic codes through methylation, demethylation, acetylation, and so on; actions that don’t change the genomic constitution but literally function to turn on or turn off or even turn up or down the activity of genes.

By determining the mechanism of the effects of nutrients or the effects of a nutritional regime, NUTRIGENOMICS tries to define the causality or relationship between these specific nutrients and specific nutrient regimes (diets) on human health.

 

NUTRIGENOMICS has been associated with the idea of personalized nutrition based on genotype. While there is hope that nutrigenomics will ultimately enable such personalized dietary advice, it is a science still in its infancy and its contribution to public health over the next decade is thought to be major.

Human Alternatives and Natural Drug Sciences focuses on human health.

Biologic researches nutrigenomics – nutrient-gene interactions. Biologic HANDS is dedicated to investigating breakthroughs in genetic-nutrient activity and nutrient-metabolic interactions. 

 

This research focuses on prostaglandin, histamine, and leukotriene chemistry and the activity of immune-modulating or signaling compounds such as cytokines like TNF alpha.  These biochemicals are at the center of inflammatory chemistry and immune system regulation.

​Pet Alternative Wellness Sciences focuses on pet health.

 

Biologic PAWS is a division of Biologic Nutrigenomics that concentrates on creating effective nutraceutical (nutrient-based) products for our companion animals.


The human metabolic design is only slightly varied from the biochemistry of our pet companions. With an informed understanding of these metabolic differences, crucial modifications to therapeutic, preventive, and performance-enhancing nutraceutical formulations are being applied to produce species-specific therapies and supplements. These remedies have proven powerfully successful.

Some of the Biologic research and findings presented in the heavily referenced book Potential Within - Your Dog's Health, investigates and develops science-based formulations for condition-specific therapies, powerful disease prevention, and a longer, higher quality of life for our companion animals.
