Are you ready for a DNA make-over that’s guaranteed to help you get slimmer, stronger, happier and overall in great shape?

It’s called Epigenetics, a cutting-edge new science that studies how our gene expression is influenced and changed by a whole host of factors—from diet [and] exercise…to environmental factors and lifestyle modifications as well.

Using the latest technology in gene analysis, researchers at the Karolinska Institute found that even a small amount of regular daily exercise changes the fat storage levels of cells, which in turn affects epigenetic gene expression in many profound and diverse ways—including changes in more than 5,000 sites on the genome — particularly in genes known to play a role in energy metabolism, insulin response, inflammation, and those linked to a heightened risk of developing obesity or diabetes.

For those [who inherited]…unhealthy DNA patterns, emerging new health techniques based on Epigenetic discoveries…could reset not just your workout, but the expression of your DNA as well.
