We are all different, and a part of this difference is as a result of our genetic profile.
Genetically, there are the differences that we all see, such as eye and hair colour, but there are also the differences we don’t see, how we metabolise nutrients for example, the way we deal with toxins, how well we react to different types of exercise – we all interact with the environment in our own unique way.
Genetically we are almost identical, but in each gene there are points of variation. The most common type of variation is a single base change at a particular position – this variation is called a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, or SNP for short (pronounced ‘snip’).
It is in the combination of these tiny differences that we define our individuality, who we are.
But genes are not the whole picture, they don’t work alone and they don’t determine everything about us.
Genes interact with our environment – and modifying the environment modifies our "phenotype" – the way we are (e.g. a fair skinned person will only suffer from sunburn if she/he stays in the sun too long).
Because we have some control over our environment (in our case exercise and nutrition choices) we therefore can work to create the best phenotype for our lifestyle.
At DNAFit we focus our work specifically on these two realms of genetic science - Exercise Genomics & Nutrigenomics, with the aim of helping our customers train, eat and feel their best.
