Everyone ages at different rates. This is because everyone’s lifestyle is significantly different! There is a common denominator. Research shows cellular functions are directly related to the aging process. We need to focus more on our health from the inside out!
The main key players in supporting healthier cells are Glutathione, NAD, and fluid
“Age-Associated Cellular Decline (AACD) is the time-related deterioration in the way our cells function as we age, which often begins in our 40s and accelerates in our 60s.1,2 While aging is a complex process involving many physical changes, new advances in scientific discovery have brought a wealth of understanding about why we age, what cellular processes change with age, and the important role cellular health plays in how we age
Research on aging continues to describe what mechanisms relate to the health of our cells and how these mechanisms change over time and contribute to the cellular decline and the process of aging. What has become increasingly evident is the importance of mitochondrial health for proper cellular function and the significant impact this can have on energy, endurance, strength, and stamina after middle age.3
As the “powerhouse” of the cell, mitochondria are primarily responsible for producing cellular energy (ATP).4 However, a variety of cellular mechanisms decline, and mitochondria become less efficient, which gradually impairs cellular function as we age. Current evidence points to mitochondrial dysfunction as a factor commonly driving accelerated cellular aging and Age-Associated Cellular Decline.5
In light of this growing understanding, three major mechanisms of cellular decline have now been identified as playing important roles in accelerating the declines associated with aging. These mechanisms include:
A decline in mitochondrial health, which reduces efficiency in cellular energy production, mitochondrial function, and cellular function.6
A decline in NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), which impairs the natural process for producing cellular energy (ATP).7 NAD+ is a coenzyme, which is essential to turn nutrients into energy and is critical for energy production.
A decline in levels of glutathione, a “master antioxidant,” must be continuously produced by the body for proper cellular protection from oxidative stress and damage.8 Glutathione is also essential for healthy immune.
Collectively, these mechanisms of decline contribute to accelerated cellular aging. The progressive decline of mitochondrial function decreased levels of NAD+ and increased oxidative stress within cells cascade throughout the body. This may have noticeable effects on a loss of cellular protection, daily energy levels, and muscle and organ function.]”
