The human´s metabolism is the most efficient way of providing energy for our body cells. On the other hand, the oxygen´s participation is also responsible for the origin of free oxygen-radicals. A certain amount of radicals is necessary for the protection of invading micro-organism.
However, a ˝too much˝ of reactive oxygen species (ROS) are leading to a destruction of the cell membrane, thus, starting a train of morbid events (oxidative stress). Consequences may be dramatic:
– Arteriosclerosis, heart-attack, stroke
– Diabetes mellitus
– Inflammatory diseases
– Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson, Alzheimer, Polyneuropathy
Additionally, oxygen ˝gone haywire˝ maybe causing premature aging, respiratory disorders, inhibition of sperm formation, inflammatory skin diseases, melanoma, as well as an increased vulnerability for viral infections.
Excessiveness of ROS are caused by the pollution of the environment with airborne pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, fungicides, UV-rays, as well as by poor diets, alcohol, nicotine and extreme physical training. Also, how antibiotics, chemotherapeutic, paracetamol (acetaminophen) and other medications are metabolized, may be leading to damages of somatic cells. Our body maintains enzymes in order to detoxify these radicals. However, work done is often insufficient.
The good news: Nature´s mineral siliceous earth is able of bringing oxygen species, which have ˝gone wild˝ back to their senses, naturally with high efficiency. Acting as a type of ˝biological rust-protective agent˝ within the gastrointestinal tract toward oxidative stress, the volcanic mineral is reliable as clockwork.
