The human body consists of trillions of cells which provide structure for the body. Cells take in nutrients from food, convert nutrients into energy, and perform specialized functions.
DNA is part of every cell and is our unique genetic code that tells cells what to make. Like a recipe book it holds the instructions for making all the proteins in our bodies.
Our cells continuously regenerate & replicate in the body using this code and this continuous process of cell growth, repair and division is known as the cell cycle. Some cells take days to replace and other months. After 7-10 years the entire human body has replaced itself with a new set of cells and you have a completely new body.
The biological processes behind aging are complex, with the body including many biological pathways. A biological pathway is a series of biochemical interactions that results in changes in a cell. A pathway can trigger the assembly of new molecules, such as a fat or protein, turn genes on or off, or cause a cell to move.
Proteins also play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body's tissues and organs.
As we age, our regeneration activity becomes less efficient due to chemical and biological issues affecting the entire process. These process issues have been identified by scientists as ‘The Hallmarks of Aging’, however they can be addressed resulting in a long and healthy life.
Optimizing these biological processes and providing your cells with the correct tools and fuel for efficient cell regeneration slows down aging, promoting longevity and wellness
