Free Radicals cause Aging

Excessive free radical activity has been shown in studies and clincal trials to cause aging.

Doctors Cranton and Frackelton dramatically underline the importance of dealing with free radicals:

When free radicals in living tissues exceed safe levels, the result is cell destruction, malignant mutation, tumor growth, damage to enzymes and inflammations, which manifest clinically as age-related, chronic degenerative diseases. Each uncontrolled free radical has the potential to multiply a million-fold. But, when functioning properly, our antioxidant systems suppress excessive free radical reactions. They point out that the life expectancy of mammals (such as ourselves) is in direct proportion to the free radical control enzymes, like superoxide dismutase.

Dr. Barja G of the Faculty of Biology, Complutense University, Madrid, Spain linked free radicals and aging as:

Aging is characterized by decrements in maximum function and accumulation of mitochondrial DNA mutations, which are best observed in organs such as the brain that contain post-mitotic cells. Oxygen radicals are increasingly considered responsible for part of these aging changes. Comparative studies of animals with different aging rates have shown that the rate of mitochondrial oxygen radical generation is directly related to the steady-state level of oxidative damage to mitochondrial DNA and is inversely correlated with maximum longevity in higher vertebrates. The degree of unsaturation of tissue fatty acids also correlates inversely with maximum longevity. These are the two known traits connecting oxidative stress with aging. Furthermore, caloric restriction, which decreases the rate of aging, proportionately decreases mitochondrial oxygen radical generation, especially at complex I. These findings are reviewed, highlighting the results obtained in the brain.

There are many more studies and researches linking excessive free radical activity in the body to diseases such as aging and cancers. The 2 observations above on their own should concern us enough to regularly check free radicals in our body to make sure they are under control. If not then the appropriate antioxidants must be used to bring such free radical activity under control.

An effective antioxidant is Glutathione. It is the most significant non-enzymatic oxidant defense mechanism. It exists in relatvively large amounts (M levels) and serves to detoxify peroxides and regenerate a number of important antioxidants such as -tociogerik abd ' ascorbic acid. The best way to obtain Glutathione is through L-Cysteine because the body do not absorb glutathione consumed orally. Cysteine is more bioavailable to the body which converts it to glutathione easily.

Osumex's Flax Hulls
is also an effective antioxidant to use. It is also a most nutritious fibre!

It is recommended that you test at least once a week, if excessive free radical activity is found, until it is brought under control, or once a month or at least once every few months to make sure free radicals in the body are not running rampant!
