Breakthrough In Antiaging Therapies Impede Aging Process And Increase Longevity

By Ml Carroll

Vital organs can be afflicted by unstable, naturally occurring molecules called free radicals. The radicals bind to tissues and organ systems causing them to deteriorate. A poor diet and exposure to excessive environmental pollutants accelerates this process. Antiaging foods high in vitamins and minerals can greatly slow the degeneration.

Foods containing phytonutrients, which are plants rich in antioxidants, curtail excess free radical accumulation in your body, repair and replace your body's cells, and powerfully enhance immune system resistance. Incidentally, helping you live longer while feeling better and preventing disease and ailments.

Plants are color typed by naturally occurring organic pigments. Tan vegetables, like grains, beans and nuts contain cholesterol lowering phytosterols; cartenoids like tomatoes, kale and bell peppers are red, yellow, orange and red fruits and vegetables

Foods like these can enhance all of your bodily functions by stepping up blood vessel development and assisting in the body's reconstruction of impaired organs and tissue. They provide your body with improved endurance, longer lifespan, enhanced ability to sleep, and a feeling of vitality, energy, calmness and well being.

Free radicals are molecules that hasten aging, cause disease and damages organs and cells when biological systems are deteriorated by oxidation. Oxidation is a the chemical reaction that produces the radicals that speed aging. The molecules that inhibits oxidation are called antioxidants. They prevent damage to cells, DNA and disease.

Essential nutrients cannot be synthesized by the body but are vital for all bodily functions. They range from vitamin C for cellular regrowth, to the mineral magnesium, for nerve and muscular tissue health to vitamin E, which prevents free radical formation when fat undergoes oxidation . The antioxidants furnished by essential nutrients play a critical role in human health because of their chemical ability to prevent the oxidation of biological systems inhibiting the aging process and disease.

Antioxidants reduce high blood pressure. They increase the relaxation of muscles in the cardiovascular system and help lessen the visible signs of aging like wrinkles, poor skin, sagging skin and skin discoloration. This action is provided by vitamins A, E, C and a yellow compound, found in citrus fruit, called bioflavonoids

An exceptional development in antiaging therapy is the proven scientific success of resveratrol in slowing aging. The substance is a member of a class of plant chemical compounds called polyphenols and is an antioxidant. It is a component of red wine, knotweed, blueberries and other plants. Scientific research has also shown that it's effective against obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Resveratrol, a polyphenol and antioxidant, stops the oxidation of (LDP), or low density protein. The antioxidant makes it harder for cancer cell to aggregate and form blood clots that can result in a heart attack. It also obstructs the spread cancer of cells, triggers the process of cancer cell death and impedes inflammation.

Blood insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes, is a disorder where the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the blood glucose lowering hormone. Resveratrol assists in preventing this disorder.

The polyphenol activates essential metabolic pathways. For example, it activates a sensor named AMPK which manages cell homeostasis, and a gene involved in lifespan extension called sirituin 1, or SIRT 1. Resveratrol also amplifies glucose metabolism, insulin regulation and cell survival

Resveratrol may help decrease prostate gland tumorigenesis, or where cells become cancerous, by means of a reduction in the prostrate levels of mTORC1, an enzyme associated with with tumors. It also inhibits the enzymes CYP1A1, CYP1A2 and CYP1B1 in tumor cells, and reduces oxidative stress.
