The moment we are born we begin the aging process. We have the weapon to fight disease and aging with something called superoxide dismutase. We get half from our mother and half from our father and it’s our natural antioxidant that fights and neutralizes free-radicals.
Only 20% of us have two functioning superoxided dismutase genes. 60% of us have only one functional gene and 20% have NO functional gene.
With today’s DNA testing made available to the public; you can determine what percentage of the population you fall into.
In our bodies we have a process called oxidation that creates free radicals every day through our normal metabolic processes and through exposure to our environment. The air we breathe, the food we eat and even sun exposure causes oxidation and forms free radicals.
Antioxidants fight free radicals and lower our risk of developing many diseases and illnesses that rob us of a longer life expectancy.
Without antioxidants, free radicals will cause deterioration of our bones, joints and connective tissue; our organs will wear out and our immune system will break down and become unable to fight off disease and all the visible effects of the aging process.
Nutrigenomics-is the study of molecular relationships between nutrition and the response of genes, with the aim of extrapolating how these subtle changes can affect human health. This exciting new science plays a critical role in determining which genes are expressed and how we can live longer, healthier lives.
