- Antioxidant Defense
Free radicals are unstable, destructive molecules with one missing, unpaired electron. In a process called oxidation, the same process that turns iron to rust, free radicals can impact cells as they steal electrons from healthy molecules, starting a cascade that ages the body and affects the body cell by cell, tissue by tissue. This process is halted with antioxidants. Antioxidants selflessly donate their electrons to stabilize free radicals and prevent their effects. Free radicals are natural by-products of mitochondrial energy generation and they are also the result of constant bombardment by pollutants, toxins, excess sunlight, unnatural foods, and electromagnetic radiation. In 1954, Dr. Denham Haimen first espoused the Free Radical Theory of Aging. As we age, our body's ability to produce innate antioxidants decreases, giving free radicals and the aging they cause the upper hand in our bodies. Supplementation with natural antioxidants can neutralize these harmful compounds.
During the Plague of the 14th century, one-third of the population of Europe died. The question is: why did the others live, even though they were also exposed to the Yersinia pestis bacteria? The answer may be the strength and responsiveness of their immune systems. The immune system is like an intelligent second brain with the unique ability to identify foreign compounds and to quickly produce the specific defenses needed to combat harmful invaders and protect us. The immune system uses a wide variety of cells and biochemicals located primarily in the blood stream and the gastrointestinal tract, such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. We can significantly strengthen and improve the functionality of the immune system through nutrition, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
