Genetics can influence nutrient and vitamin levels, while nutrients can also affect gene expression. That’s where nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics come in — new sciences exploring the interplay between each person’s unique genetic makeup and their nutrition. Read on to learn more and to understand how it’s possible to adjust your nutrient intake to your unique […]
It all started with one mission: to discover DNA-based biohacks that will help people optimize their health. It’s been more than 2 years since SelfDecode was founded, and we have some exciting updates in store. Read on to learn more and to hear what our scientists have to say about the future of genetics-targeted health.
There is a lot of misinformation about MTHFR, even though there are a lot of studies on this gene. This post goes through the actual science of this gene and what conditions it’s associated with. MTHFR levels are influenced by your genes. If you’ve gotten your genes sequenced, SelfDecode can help you determine if your […]
Did you know that MTHFR is the most studied gene in nutrigenomics? In fact, the methylation pathway is involved in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine, using folate. It is also involved in the processing of sulfur-containing amino acids and the production of glutathione, our major detoxifying enzyme. DNA methylation modifies the human genome, affects aging, […]
Increasing dopamine is one of my favorite biohacks as it plays a central role in motivation, success, and pleasure. I cracked the code to enhancing dopamine levels that is custom tailored to your own genetic code, you can enter your genome from 23andMe into our software, SelfDecode. I also highlight my favorite biohacks and dopamine […]
If you want to interpret your genes, you can upload them into SelfDecode.
This SNP has a very significant impact on intelligence. It’s rare that a single SNP can explain 2–5% of the variance in general intelligence, given that biology is a large symphony of genes, epigenetics, microbiomes, etc… The good news is that there are hacks around this SNP.
Klotho is a protein that can make you more intelligent and live longer. Read on about how to increase it.
