Do you want the Best Brain ever? If so, then nutrition is a vital element in your brain performing its best and we promote a healthy nutritionally based diet. The relatively new field of nutrigenomics takes nutrition to the cellular and DNA level getting at the root cause of many of our mental and physical health problems. We can now bio-hack our bodies on a cellular level. Simply stated, Nutigenomics “is the study of the effects of food and food constituents on gene expression, and how genetic variations affect the nutritional environment. It focuses on understanding the interaction between nutrients and other dietary bio-actives with the genome at the molecular level, to understand how specific nutrients or dietary regimens may affect human health.” To achieve your Best Brain ever working on your cellular and DNA level, Nutrigenomics gets to the root cause of many different aliments both physically and mentally. Adding nutrigenomics to our practice has helped our clients get better faster.
This relatively new scientific field has exploded with new research coming out on a continuous basis. Basically science has learned how to flip the switches on a cellular level using natural ingredients. In 1994 the NRF2 (Nuclear factor erythroid 2–related factor 2) protein pathway was discovered flipping the switch to produce anti-oxidants, NRF1 (Nuclear respiratory factor 1) flips the switch to activate our mitochondria (energy producing part of our cells), and NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a molecule found in every cell in the body. NAD is used to power metabolism by enabling the mitochondria (the 'power stations' of the cell) to convert the food we eat into the energy our body needs to sustain all its functions. NAD has proven to dramatically increase the effects of both NRF1 and NRF2. In 1998 there were just 17 peer reviewed studies on the NRF2 and as of 2019 there have been over 13,595 studies. Why is it important to know about the huge increase in the number of studies? These new discoveries are changing the way we look at our mental and physical health and how we can allow our cells to create what it needs without the negative affects of time and toxicity. LifeVantage is at the forefront of providing products to activate your DNA and this is why we recommend LifeVantage products at Harmonized Brain Centers. We have found that adding these products as a modality to our practice, we are seeing our clients getting better faster.
There is a huge difference in just supplementing with a product versus activating your DNA to produce the desired effect. Consider oxidative stress for an example. Basically, oxidative stress is the difference between the free-radicals (reactive oxygen) and the anti-oxidants in our cells. Overproduction of free radicals can cause oxidative damage (stress) to biomolecules, (lipids, proteins, DNA), eventually leading to many chronic diseases.
It is common knowledge that anti-oxidants are good for our bodies because we live in a toxic world and with age our ability to fight off the affects of free radicals diminishes with time. Just eating blue berries (a great natural anti-oxidant) is limited to the amount of blue berries we can eat in a given day and when we stop eating the blue berries then we stop receiving the much needed anti-oxidants. On the other hand, by taking the Protandim NRF2 product, you will activate your DNA at the cellular level to flip the switches so that your own cells will generate their own anti-oxidants on a million-to-one ratio.
We have found that our clients who regularly take the Protandim products, they just get better faster. A win-win for everyone.
