Optimal Metabolic Nutritional Injuvenation
The strongest defense system against free radicals is already present in your cells. The only thing you have to facilitate, is the production of antioxidant enzymes in your body. The basic concept behind this approach is ‘hormesis’.
The idea of hormesis is to provoke the intrinsic capability of the body rather than to simply supply external natural or synthetic antioxidants to try to compensate for age-related decline of physiological activities in the overall maintenance mechanisms of life. This is known as the Nrf2/ARE pathway .
There are foods & supplements which encourage this process:
“Making your own antioxidant enzymes by activating Nrf2 and SOD is far more effective than taking big dosages of Vitamin C, A and E.”
