Antioxidants - Protecting Against Mitochondria Decay

Antioxidants - Protecting Against Mitochondria Decay

Mitochondrial decay is now seen as the major cause of cell deterioration within the brain (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's, etc.); however, cells are not just confined to the brain; the whole body is made up of them, and they need energy.

The Mitochondria provide energy for basic metabolic processes, and their decay with age can impair cellular metabolism and lead to cellular decline. Research into delaying mitochondrial decay is now being described by scientists as the elusive fountain of youth.

This has led to scientists concluding that what is crucial to the protection of mitochondria is paramount to a long and healthy life and could even be the starting point for seeing people live beyond 150 and addressing all the ailments associated with old age.

Our body’s mitochondrial engines produce free radicals at a rate of 100 quintillion free radicals per second (200,000 superoxide anion radicals per mitochondria per second). These free radicals are like heat in a car engine. They must be quenched, or they will destroy the mitochondria and continue to damage other parts of the cell as well.

Just as we protect car engines with oils and coolants in order to maximise the life of the car engine, similarly, we need to protect our mitochondria (our human engines).

Ultra-potent antioxidants delivered in a pure, unadulterated form provide an extraordinary defence against mitochondrial decay. Researchers found it not only protected mitochondria from oxidative damage but also stimulated the growth of new mitochondria and neutralised superoxide and hydroxyl radicals.

The products made by Natural Elements not only have a formidable free radical-scavenging capacity, more so than any other brand of skincare, but they are also in a form that is uninterrupted by synthetic chemicals within the formulations.

The stability of these formulations allow thousands of electron transfers without undergoing molecular breakdown. The combination of certain raw materials from plant extracts has proven especially effective in neutralising the ubiquitous superoxide and hydroxyl radicals from sources such as UVA light.

This breakthrough in understanding and indeed what’s needed and in what form for preventing cellular decay is the bridge of understanding to the road of anti-ageing as never seen before. 

Compiled from academic records by John Hamilton, BIOGERONTOLOGIST Biogerontology is a sub-field of gerontology that studies the biological processes of ageing. Biogerontology endeavours to slow, prevent, and even reverse ageing in humans by slowing down the underlying processes of ageing.With recognition to below &  Stanford, Newcastle, Glasgow , Harvard Universities
