The science of nutrigenomics, whilst young, is gaining increasing credibility and investment from industry, research and trials. The concept proposed by Mendel that our genes are “hardwired” to express a disease or health outcome has become increasingly vulnerable to scientific scrutiny. The therapeutic use of nutrient concentrates in the modification of health for humans has found a new ally in science, as it becomes clear that our gene expression can be modified by the interaction between nutritional supplements (concentrated, standardised and uniquely bioavailable) and specialised gene receptors.
Doctor Mark Houston a leading US physician in Functional Medicine has developed nutrient combinations that reflect the latest scientific reviews and clinical trials. The understanding of how science is pushing the frontiers of nutrient-gene interaction fast and hard, will be explained in this clinically relevant seminar. Doctor Houston understands only too well the need for clinical relevance and will articulate the role of these and other strategies involving nutritional and lifestyle changes that hold great promise for maintaining long term optimal health.
By mimicking a natural process through the delivery of highly absorbable receptor specific nutrients, it is possible to stimulate and support cell repair and optimise mitochondrial function. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Armstrong Gene’, a reference to a seven times winner of the Tour de France race – Lance Armstrong, as manipulating this gene has demonstrated a significant impact on energy production and stamina.
The principle ingredient: transresveratrol is derived from red wine. Before rushing for your bottle of Merlot, the therapeutic dose has been shown to be at the equivalent level of a few thousand glasses. We recommend consuming the highly concentrated nutritional form for therapy and the dilute form in moderation for social relaxation!
