Understanding Oxidative Stress

Uncategorized Jun 05, 2020

“Oxidation” is the chemical term that describes removing electrons from an atom. Your cells are made of molecules that contain electrons, and these electrons can be “stolen” by an unstable atom that needs another electron to be stable. When this happens in your body, it can lead to tissue damage. Think about an apple that you cut and leave out. It turns brown, starts to shrivel and wrinkle, and gets mushy. That’s oxidation. Another example is rust—that’s metal oxidizing, getting holes and becoming weak and discolored.

Our body is really busy. Digesting food, breathing in and out, using our muscles, even thinking, are all hard work. This work can generate byproducts—like free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that start oxidation—they need an electron from another molecule to become stable. You need some free radicals to stimulate important physiological processes, such as helping the immune system function correctly...

Why are NRF1 and Mitochondria Important for Cell Health?

Uncategorized May 23, 2020

What is NRF-1?

NRF-1 is the acronym for nuclear respiratory factor 1. It is responsible for producing a protein that is seen to homodimerize and act as a major transcription factor, activating the prominence of some metabolic genes. These genes are responsible for regulating nuclear genes and cellular growth that is essential for heme biosynthesis, respiration, and replication and transcription of mitochondrial DNA.

The encoded protein created by NFR-1 is linked with the controlling act for neurite outgrowth. NRF-1 along with NRF-2 relates the biogenomic coordination between mitochondrial and nuclear genomes by regulating the prominence of many ETC proteins (nuclear-encoded) directly, and also regulating the 3 COX subunit genes (mitochondrial-regulated) by triggering off mtTFA, mtTFB1, and mtTFB2.

Alternative transcriptional intertwine variants, which produce the same protein, have also been specified. Additional variants that encode different protein isoforms have been identified...

Understanding Aging

Do you know why we age?  

What causes our body to break down. 

Why brain fog, aches and pains, stomach and other health issues start to settle in over time.

Have you ever thought about it….  

Or are you like me?

I never thought about it until my body stopped working, which impacted my life and joy every day….  

This one thing changed my life...  Understanding why and how we age.

“Aging Is is not a mystery” -Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Leading geneticist Cambridge

Really?

Aging becomes simple when we take a journey inside of our body and understand how it works every day to keep us healthy, no matter what we do to it.  It is a miracle that begins inside of every cell.  The fact is our body is made up of trillions of cells, brilliantly designed to manage important tasks but also repair, restore and rejuvenate our health every day.  

“Aging is simply the accumulation of damage in our cells”...
