ADEK: Vitamins or Hormones?
Thursday October 27, 7-9 pm @ The Health Collective
Fat soluble vitamins play a key role in health and wellness, but their function goes beyond that of simple vitamins. New research is discovering how deep fat soluble vitamins go-from cell biochemistry to genetic transcription. Discover the science behind the many faces of vitamins A, D, E, K1 and K2, their role in the body, how they interact and real food sources to keep us healthy and strong.
Genetics and Nutrition:
How our Health Today Impacts for Generations
An Introduction to Epigenetics. Wednesday January 18, 7-9 pm.
This is a topic near and dear to me as it combines two of my favourite things: Nutrition and Genetics. I never the thought these two worlds would collide, but they have in a big way. Epigenetics is the study of genetics and how genes expression can change, without changing the original DNA sequence, yet have lasting changes for generations. How is this possible? Lets have fun talking science and how our field of nutrition can such a huge impact for many years to come.
