Metabolomics and Metabolism Go Together

Metabolomics is a scientific method used to analyze tiny chemical substances found in our bodies. Initially, it helped doctors detect certain disorders in newborn babies by examining their blood.Nowadays, this method is also used to study the complex chemicals in our food, going beyond just looking at basic nutrients like vitamins and minerals.

Metabolomics is really useful because it gives a detailed picture of how our bodies react to the food we eat. Unlike traditional ways of tracking diets, like keeping a food diary, which can be unreliable, metabolomics uses markers found in blood and urine to give a more accurate picture of our nutrition.

This helps in understanding what nutrients might be missing in our diets, how our bodies respond to different foods, and in creating personalized diet plans based on our unique body chemistry.
