Your DNA Is Your Body’s Blueprint.
Your DNA, AKA Deoxyribonucleic Acid – contains your genetic code. Everyone’s DNA is completely unique, because it’s made up of a code that varies from person to person. So, at least when we say, “You’ll never find anyone else like me!” you’re actually correct 😉
But what is a gene?
Genes are pieces of code in your DNA. Some genes are long (like, 2 million letters long) and some are shorter, like a few hundred letters long.
You get two copies of each gene: one from your mom, and one from your dad – resulting in your unique genetic code. EVERYONE carries slightly different versions of genes, and the places where your genes are different are called genetic variants.
Our unique combination of genetic variants is what makes us different from everyone else!
Some genetic variants are associated with health issues.
But here’s the interesting part: you can change the expression of many of your genes!
Although your genetic variants can impact your chances of developing certain diseases and other health issues, your unique genetic code can also affect the way your body responds to certain diets, supplements, and lifestyle choices!
Discovering how your genetics play a role in your health helps you understand your risks, but also gives you everything you need to reach optimal health.
Your DNA is your life code.
