Nutrition, epigenetic mechanisms, and human disease

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Nutrition, epigenetic mechanisms, and human disease
Aug 262019
 

As nutrition research is shifting its focus from epidemiology and physiology to effects of nutrients at the molecular level, a uniquely tailored diet that corresponds to the demands of our genetic signature is emerging as an indispensable need. Using high-throughput genomic tools, nutrigenomics unravels the influence of micro- and macronutrients as potent dietary signals regulating metabolic pathways and unmasks how susceptible genotypes are predisposed to diet-related diseases. Selected topics from this field have been covered in some books, but no other comprehensive text on epigenetics, nutrition, and human health and disease is available, until now. This book illustrates nutrition’s influence on epigenetic inheritance and the mechanisms underlying the modification of the metabolic imprint of an individual. This enriched understanding of nutrigenomics can be applied to master a tailored diet that can alleviate imprinted metabolic syndromes. Specifically, the book focuses on: Maternal, perinatal, and neonatal nutrition Epigenetic mechanisms and cancer Impacts of dietary factors, folate deficiency and DNA methylation Nutrition’s influence on genetic imprinting The basics of nutrigenomics and epigenetic regulation

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Personalized nutrition: Translating nutrigenetic nutrigenomic research into dietary guidelines
Jul 312019
 

Awareness of the influence of our genetic variation to dietary response (nutrigenetics) and how nutrients may affect gene expression (nutrigenomics) is prompting a revolution in the field of nutrition. Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics provide powerful approaches to unravel the complex relationships among nutritional molecules, genetic variants and the biological system. This publication contains selected papers from the ‘3rd Congress of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/Nutrigenomics’ held in Bethesda, Md., in October 2009. The contributions address frontiers in nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, epigenetics, transcriptomics as well as non-coding RNAs and posttranslational gene regulations in various diseases and conditions. In addition to scientific studies, the challenges and opportunities facing governments, academia and the industry are included. Everyone interested in the future of personalized medicine and nutrition or agriculture, as well as researchers in academia, government and industry will find this publication of the utmost interest for their work.

Sports nutrition: Vitamins and trace elements

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Sports nutrition: Vitamins and trace elements
Jul 252019
 

In competitive sports where an extra breath or a millisecond quicker neural response can spell the difference between fame and mediocrity, a number of myths have persisted around the impact of what might be considered megadoses of various vitamins and trace elements. We do know that a growing body of research indicates that work capacity, oxygen consumption, and other measures of physical performance are affected by a deficiency or borderline deficiency in specific vitamins or essential trace elements. However, when it comes to providing larger doses, the research is conflictedThe second edition of Sports Nutrition: Vitamins and Trace Elements, edited by two of the most respected experts in sports nutrition, provides an updated critical review of these reports. The latest volume of this highly popular work includes a collection of chapters written by top researchers from several academic disciplines. Applying their expertise in specific vitamin or trace element nutrition as it relates to exercise and sports, they weigh in on the full alphabet of vitamins as well as a variety of trace elements, incorporating the most recent research. This edition adds chapters on choline and iodine. It also emphasizes new findings on vitamin and mineral metabolic reactions and provides in-depth discussion on the overuse of vitamins to toxic levels and its effect on physical performance. Sports nutritionists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, researchers, exercise physiologists, students, health practitioners, as well as those lay-persons interested in optimal nutrition will find this book especially timely and highly helpful in sorting myth from truth.
