Wholesome nutrition, based upon feeding functional foods, is the key to maintaining a healthy immune system and resistance to disease. Discussion will focus on: ? Nutrigenomics, an emerging science that studies the molecular relationships between nutrition and the response of genes in promoting health. ? Different diets elicit different patterns of gene and protein expression as well as metabolite production; these are termed "molecular dietary signatures". ? Basic functional food ingredients and immune-balancing nutrients maintain health and reduce inflammation and disease. ? Promote healthy endocrine and immune function for longevity, well-being and cognitive awareness. ? Especially important to help maintain thyroid function and normal behavior in dogs with heritable and familial thyroid disorders.
