For the most part, hereditary subgroups and individuals, nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics have a lot of promise for providing the general public with superior healthy recommendations. It is frequently difficult, in any case, for trained experts to see the value in nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics because they necessitate a thorough understanding of nutrition, hereditary traits, organic chemistry, and ever-evolving 'omic' advances. This is because they are necessary for improving wellbeing, postponing the onset of illness, and lessening the severity of it. This audit looks at the fundamental concepts, technical terms, and innovation involved with nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics; how this emerging knowledge can be used to improve health, prevent disease, and treat illness; and how to read, understand, and interpret the findings of nutrigenetic and nutrigenomic research [1].

The study of the effects of inherited small variations in dietary response and the role of dietary supplements and bioactive food molecules in quality articulation, respectively, are referred to as nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. The acquisition of new information pointing toward acquiring a superior understanding of supplement quality cooperation’s relying on the genotype with a clear objective of developing customized sustenance methodologies for ideal wellbeing and infection avoidance is made possible by double-dealing of this genomic data alongside high-all through "omic" advances. As a prominent branch of science, nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are supported by three key factors [2].

First, there is a remarkable variation in the acquired genome between ethnic groups and individuals, which affects the absorption and digestion of supplements. Second, people differ greatly in their access to food and supplements and in the choices they make based on social, practical, geographical, and gastronomic considerations. Third, inadequate or excessive dietary intake can affect genome strength and quality articulation, with the latter option leading to changes in quality arrangement or chromosomal structure that could result in odd quality measurements and quality articulation that could lead to unfriendly aggregates at various stages of life [3].

Any disease or condition that is linked to genetic and/or nutritional components can be the focus of nutrigenomic studies in order to determine whether dietary intervention can have an impact on the outcome. Nutrition is a significant component of the environmental conditions that can putatively interact with the genotype to bring about a phenotypical change. Numerous illnesses, including as cancer, cardiovascular, digestive, and inflammatory diseases, are influenced by variations in genetic make-up (genotype) and nutrient shortages. Nutrigenomics seeks to explain why some people can manage their disease with nutrition alone while others need medication. Therefore, it is anticipated that nutrigenomics will make a substantial contribution to personalized medicine [4].

Nutrigenomics raises a number of ethical questions and risks that are similar to "genethics" or ethics in genetics, despite its acknowledged future potential benefits: a predisposition to develop a disease may cause anxiety and stress in the individual; the patient's privacy may be compromised potential discrimination against affected individuals by employers, health insurance companies, and family [5].

Current nutrigenomic research in our lab aims to determine the connection between different combinations of potent, specific natural substances that can treat particular disorders More intriguingly, functional nutrigenomics will eventually lead to the identification and validation of candidate gene targets that can open the door to the development of anticancer therapeutic strategies, in addition to understanding the fundamental molecular mechanisms of action of specific compounds in cancer.
