All of our functions of life need energy – our fuel. Nutrients are the way of receiving this energy. Firstly, our nourishment is being metabolized into various particles, in order of being transported via the blood stream to the appropriated parts of our body. This enables its build-up and maintenance. The process of receiving energy for the organism involved the burning of nutrients. Mitochondria are the small power plants within the cell´s interior, which is where this energy production actually starts.
Oxygen is necessary for the burning process. There, aggressive oxygen particles, called free radicals, are being created. They are able of seriously damaging the cell during its dividing are repairing processes. This ˝oxidative stress˝ is responsible to the state of aging. Skin, connective tissue, and the gastro-intestinal tract are particularly sensitive areas.
Does the air, essential for life, turns us ˝rusty˝? Not necessarily. Naturally, our body has also for this oxidative stress and antidote ready: antioxidants. There, we are distinguishing enzymatic substances, which are being produced by the body itself, and non-enzymatic substances, such as the siliceous earth and the vitamins C and E.
When the optimal supply of cells with nutrients and oxygen, as well as the removal of metabolic waste is reaching a shortage, then this intelligent balance is hampered as well. First signs of this imbalance are reductions of efficiency and ˝wear and tear˝ characteristics. Then, we are getting sick. Environmental pollution, stress, poor diets, and social drugs, as well as excessive physical strain, are all reasons preventing us from reaching ˝Methuselah´s age˝. Therefore, free radicals are playing an essential role for chronic-degenerative diseases.
