Today we’re going to talk about a very interesting gene, the Nrf-2 gene, that helps to protect you against disease, especially cancer. This gene is like the master gene that activates hundreds of other genes that protect your cells. These other genes are related to antioxidants. Antioxidants don’t just come from your food. Your body also makes them.

Antioxidants that are made in the body are called endogenous antioxidants. This gene regulates endogenous antioxidants. It also regulates the detoxification genes, which help break down certain things that can cause cancer.

This gene helps protect against:

• Trauma

• Emotional stress

• Pollution

• Toxins

• UV-rays

• Nutritional deficiencies

Some people have overexpression of this gene. These are the people who can eat what they want, smoke, and drink—and live a long life. But, those who have a normal expression of this gene are prone to develop diseases and cancer.

Epigenetics is above genetics. You can do certain things on an epigenetic level to have the advantage of having more expression of this gene. But, of all of the things to focus on, fasting may be the most important.

Things that will help enhance the expression of this gene:

• Curcumin (turmeric)

• Sulforaphane (cruciferous)

• Quercetin (onions and green tea)

• Fisetin (strawberries, onions, cucumbers)

• Regular mild to moderate exercise

• Fasting
