Invested to Understand.
Epigenix Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Guidestar Platinum Rated organization that was founded in 2016 with a mission to understand the epigenetic impact of metabolic interventions on human disease and performance. Our team is dedicated to studying how nutrition can determine the way in which our “genetic predispositions” are expressed and can be altered through the choices we make. We are currently focused on validating the efficacy of the ketogenic diet and its application in reversing cancer and extending longevity.
Our Research Mission Focus Statement
Given that early cancer detection and intervention offer the greatest landscape of choice in reversing cancer utilizing low side effect, nutrition based therapies, Epigenix focuses its resources to this purpose.
