Epigen™ is a word derived from the new science of Epigenetics. This field of study has proven that environmental factors, such as food, can impact genetic expression.

Simply put, how we treat and feed ourselves and our pets can not only affect health, but the health of offspring as well. This affirms the 30-year-long premise of Wysong that nutrition is a serious health matter, and not a mere opportunity for marketing, profiteering and recreation.

“Food delivers not just calories, macronutrients, micronutrients or antioxidant phytonutrients, but information. Food "speaks" to our genes, providing a snapshot of the state of affairs of the world in which we live. At the genetic level, the newscast provided by the foods we eat has a significant impact on what portions of our genome will be expressed, the phenotype we will display, how we age, and what diseases we develop.” (Integrative Medicine, Vol. 8, No. 5, 2009, page 49)
