Wonder what you inherited from your Mom? Here is a bit of info ...
Chromosomes are Inherited From Your Parents

One chromosome from each of your 23 pairs came from each of your parents. The two chromosomes of a pair (except for the sex chromosomes) contain the same genes, but the genes have small differences. Things like SNPs make each copy of a gene uniquely Mom's or Dad's.

Do you share more genes with your mother or your father?

Genetically, you actually carry more of your mother’s genes than your father’s. That’s because of little organelles that live within your cells, the mitochondria, which you only receive from your mother.
Mitochondria are the energy-producing factories of the cell; without them, a cell would not be able to generate energy from food.

The mother effect

Tissues that require a lot of energy, such as your brain and your muscles, have cells packed with mitochondria. Because all mitochondria you received come from your mother only, you are technically more related to your mum than you are to your dad.

Mixing DNA Keeps You Connected

Most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes for a total of 46. One of each pair comes from mom and the other from dad. This is why we are 50% related to our moms and 50% to our dads.
Of course our parents got their chromosomes from their parents. This is why you are about 25% related to each grandparent.
If this is all there were to passing on our DNA, then this is what a typical couple of generations might look like:

Test Your Genes to Find Your Best Diet

Genetic testing can reveal what nutrients you’re missing and if you’re drinking too much coffee. Your genes can help tell you what to eat and influence how diet affects your health.

Variants in some of our genes determine how we metabolize and utilize nutrients, a field of study known as nutrigenomics.

The promise of genetic testing is that it can tell you more about the way you're built, so that you can tailor your lifestyle to fit your biology.

In order for genetic test results to be useful, the recommendations based on them must be put into practice. That is exactly what Caligenix offers; report interpretations and DNA matching meal plans.
