Supplements & Free Radicals
Free Radicals Age Body
I came across this from one of my friends. Although it`s old news, I thought I would share it with you in case you have never heard of it. I am sure you are familiar with free radicals and how they are damaging to the body. Free radicals are what age our bodies, and they work from the inside out, caused by poor diet, stress, environmental toxins and lack of exercise. There can be other causes, but those pretty much cover it, and give reason as you why you need to take your daily vitamins and antioxidants. In order to live to a ripe old age and hit the 3 digits, you will need to practice effective ways to neutralize free radicals. Protandim seems like a very simple supplement that can help those who feel the effects of aging. Watch the video and let me know your thoughts on this supplement.
The scientific investigation of free radicals and oxidative stress began in the late 1960s with Dr. Joe McCord and a small group of scientists. Dr. McCord has dedicated over 45 years of research into free radical biology and the process of aging. He is a world renowned scientist who has been nominated four times for the Nobel Prize.
Free Radicals Influencing the Body
First 20 Years of Our Lives
For the first 20 years of our lives (a time period we call our "Youth"), our body produces an abundant supply of three very powerful and important antioxidant enzymes called "survival genes" (superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione) that slow down and regulate the natural occurrence of aging. At about the age of 20, your body starts to decrease its production of these amazing enzymes, and that's when "the real aging" process begins.
