- DNA Damage
Every day, every cell in your body is bombarded by up to a million DNA-damaging assaults. These assaults can damage the cell’s genetic database, creating a “typo” that may compromise cell function and longevity.
- Genetic Regulators
Genetic regulators contribute to age-related cellular deterioration by controlling the dynamic balance between damage and repair, including whether a cell will live or not.
- Declining Cellular Energy Production
Mitochondria in our cells create energy we can’t live without. As mitochondrial efficiency decreases, cell function declines.
- Accumulation of AGE Proteins
Excess accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE) can cause cellular damage that can compromise cell integrity and longevity.
