From: From inflammaging to healthy aging by dietary lifestyle choices: is epigenetics the key to personalized nutrition?

Figure 4

Overview of the mechanisms and consequences of epigenetic regulation by nutritional compounds. Modulation of different classes of chromatin writers-erasers by phytochemicals (left panel). Genes encoding absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) proteins can be epigenetically regulated and thereby determine individual nutritional responses. Epigenetic modification of disease-related genes can contribute to diagnosis (biomarker) as well as disease prevention or progression (right panel).
