How to eat for your genes

It's all in your DNA...

We are all unique. From the colour of our eyes to the whether we can roll our tongue, we all have a special genetic makeup that requires different nutrients.

Understanding your genes is key to uncovering how we process certain foods in our body and whether we need to supplement with certain foods in order to obtain the right nutrients.

Some people for example require extra folate in their diet if they have a genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene.

If that’s the case, you may need to uptake your intake of folate rich foods such as cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, beets or Brussel's sprouts.
