Reduction of the inflammatory status may prevent the occurrence of disorders and diseases related to overweight. In contrast to accepted biomarkers, the application of nutrigenomics techniques for large-scale profiling of genes, proteins, and metabolites shows that an anti-inflammatory dietary mix is able to influence the processes of inflammation, oxidative stress, and metabolism in humans. Dr Hendriks concludes that the use of comprehensive techniques, such as metabolic, protein, and gene profiling, facilitates the accurate and detailed quantification and description of the molecular processes involved.
