Longevity, Gene Expression & Diet
There are now a number of studies that show that we can reverse aging, improve our quality of life and live longer by making dietary changes. No doubt there is an obsession with trying to halt age in society. From botox, fillers, lasers, hair dye, make-up, lotions and potions. However not many think about how this can be achieved through food choices.
Diet also has a major impact on the risk of developing certain cancers, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases, and more. Research shows that biological age can be reversed, and health optimized with the principles of nutrigenomics (Naureen et al., 2020). The study of how food can affect an individual’s genes thereby gene expression and how the body responds is called nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics is a new and rapidly emerging field of expertise which ties in with epigenetics and how environment, lifestyle and diet can affect gene expression.

This evidence based article details which foods increase longevity, interesting differences with the microbiome and metabolism, which regions have the longest living people, the role diet plays with telomeres and specific genes – https://www.healthieyoo.com/longevity-gene-expression-and-diet/
My name is Chrissy and I am a university qualified holistic nutritionist, book an appointment with me for a personalised plan on how to reverse aging and optimise health through diet, vitamins and minerals along with manageable lifestyle changes.

Chrissy is a university qualified nutritionist who graduated with honours at La Trobe University in Melbourne. One of her favourite hobbies is to read the scientific literature on how to optimise health. When she’s not reading, writing or working she’s with her 3 children outdoors, practicing yoga, jogging or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Chrissy has overcome some debilitating chronic health issues (low mood, adrenal fatigue, insomnia, very bad acne to name a few) with the power of nutrients and correcting gut health, at 39 she now feels better than she did in her 20’s.
