Nutritional multiomics is a complex and ever-evolving field that explores the intricate relationship between food, nutrients, and the human body. This comprehensive approach examines various factors, including nutrient compatibility, solubility, stability, and kinetics, to better understand how they impact athletic performance. Coupled with gutbiomics and the development of sportomics, researchers can now provide personalized nutrition recommendations to help athletes optimize their performance, energy, strength, and endurance.
Understanding Nutrients: Compatibility, Solubility, Stability, and Kinetics
The effectiveness of nutrients within the body depends on their compatibility, solubility, and stability. Nutrient compatibility refers to how nutrients interact with each other, either synergistically or antagonistically. Solubility affects nutrient absorption and distribution, while stability determines a nutrient's resistance to degradation from external factors.
Nutrient kinetics, encompassing absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion, is a critical aspect of nutritional multiomics. Genetic factors, such as polymorphism enzymes, transporters, and receptors, influence these processes and can
