Why Genes?

Your genes are essential to life. They contain the genetic information that makes up YOUR unique blueprint. Each gene holds a unique recipe for a specific protein in your body. Genes ensure life by producing proteins which are the framework of your body in the form of muscles and bones for example. They are also movers and shakers, responsible for getting work done around the body in the form of enzymes. Without proteins, there is no life. In this course, you’ll learn more about how genes work, how that impact your health and why everyone is talking about them.

Which Food?

While many things influence your genes, food IS their principal information source. Genes respond to food by creating the proteins to support the biochemical circuitry that drives your body. What you eat and how you prepare it determines the quality of information passed on to your genes.
The food you eat can turn genes on and turn them off. We now know how to choose food to target specific genes that impact inflammation, mood, removal of toxins, support energy production, activate fat burning and more.
In this course you’ll learn which food to choose, how that food influences your genes, and what the impact is on your health. This is why we created The Genomic Kitchen Ingredient Toolbox, which you’ll be unpacking session by session in The Genomic Kitchen Express course.
