The right nutrition and lifestyle choices during all stages of life can have a profound influence on your good health. When it comes to developing healthy habits, “The sooner the better — but it’s never too late!” Continue reading “Your Epigenetic Life”

Understanding Epigenetics

The field of epigenetics is new and growing, but you don’t have to be a scientist to understand the basics. Here are some simple analogies to explain how epigenetics works on the cellular level.

Pencil

Who you are is written in both pen and pencil. Things written in pen you can’t change. That’s DNA. But things written in pencil you can. That’s epigenetics.

Lightbulb

The epigenome acts like a dimmer for lights, controlling which genes are used, when they are used and how much they are used.

Computer
Your genome is like computer hardware, the actual components that perform specific functions. Your epigenome is like software, the programs that tell the hardware which functions to perform.

“No other company is advancing the field of epigenetics like Reliv. We are in the middle of a revolution in nutrition and we are all witnesses.”
– Dr. Alfredo Galvez, the Center of Excellence in Nutrition Genomics at UC Davis
