Tip of the Day

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), are slight variations in our genetic code that can occur during DNA replication. These variations may have no effect on our bodies or they may impact how we utilize nutrients and medications.

Nutrigenomics is the study of how the food we eat and supplements we take interact with our specific gene expression. It’s a major reason why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all way of eating. With genomic testing, Sally can provide specific nutrition recommendations based off of your individual genomics. While you can’t get rid of a SNP, proper nutrition support can often help mitigate the negative effects of some gene SNPs like fatigue, brain fog, depression, poor digestion, and inflammation.
