Epigenetics describes the phenomenon of factors influencing the way our genetic code is expressed, through subtle modifications that can activate and deactivate specific genes. Environmental factors including diet can impact your genetic code and change the way your body responds to processes of disease and aging.
Cells contain biological engines called mitochondria that convert food into energy the body can use. Mitochondria utilize a complex system of vitamins, minerals, essential lipids, electrolytes, amino acids, antioxidants to function properly. Nutritional deficiencies lead to dysfunction, cell death, disease, and aging.
