What Is The Link Between Antioxidant And Anti-Aging?
Antioxidant have been widely honored in the media. Many know they're linked with age-defying properties.
Nicholas Perricone, M.D, states in his 2001 book, The Wrinkle Cure : When it comes to aging, it is not Father Time that is public enemy number one. It
is the extremely busy, extremely unpleasant tiny molecule called the free radical. The Free Radical Idea of Aging was released by Denman Harman in
1956. This is also called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is being proved to be at the base of illness and aging. One example is that the life of the fruit
fly was up to 30 percent longer when it was genetically changed with an addition of enzymatic antioxidant. Not just that, but the changed fruit flies also
showed a reduced amount of age-implicated oxidative damage.
Studies of humans have also shown proof of free radical damage playing an enormous part in human aging. One 1996 study compared markers of
free radical damage in the blood and found proof of the highest oxidative damage related to the disabled aged, an intermediate amount with the
healthy aged, and the lowest levels with the healthy adults.
We want to rethink our tenet of aging. We accept illness, incapacity, senility, wrinkles, and all of the other many symptoms of aging as natural. Instead,
we should view this as 'unsuccessful aging' ie, aging related to decay, illness and incapacity. What the proof is telling us is that it is vital we take
antioxidant and free radicals seriously if we would like to 'age gracefully' and avoid the numerous problems of 'unsuccessful aging'.
Even young people can be victims of unsuccessful aging, if they aren't providing their bodies with the required balance of having had enough diet
antioxidant to stave off the free radicals. In our modern culture, plenty of us are guilty of not getting sufficient nutrition. An engaging demonstration of
how a person can seriously damage their body with the incorrect diet was seen in the Documentary 'Super Size Me' by Morgan Spurlo
