Waking Up Aging Skin Cells

As we age, our cells get sleepy, slowing down, becoming less efficient at performing their youthful productive processes. When it comes to skin cells, this means less collagen, elastin and more aging skin.

Aging and Youthful Skin

Much of the focus of treating aging cells has targeted oxidative stress. Overproduction and accumulation of free radicals causes inflammation throughout the body as we age. A new study has shown that the production of free radicals in our youth may be beneficial, but as we age, produces the symptoms of aging seen especially in our skin. [Read more…]

Be THE FIRST to Know How Nutrigenomics Affects Your Health!

Is it a new type of coffee?  A kind of chocolate?  The latest sports car?  None of the above!  So, then, what is Nutrigenomics and why is it so important to our health and length of life to know?

I first heard the word, Nutrigenomics, a few months ago, and went right to my computer to search it out.  Lo and behold, there really is such a thing, or I should say, a field of science, and it has HUGE implications for our health and longevity!  Remember when we were in our high school biology class – the model of our DNA – the “Double Helix”?  Maybe not.  Alright then, do you recall that we all have genes?  Not the ones that we try to squeeze into to keep in style!DNA by ghutchis

I’m talking about the kind of genes that are in our DNA, also called the “Code of Life”.   Our genes are our body’s secret treasure chest that hold all of the pieces, or traits, that we have inherited since before our ancestors stepped off the Mayflower.learning to smile by dr. JukeBox

They decide the color of our eyes, type of hair, our height, personality quirks and every other inherited trait that has been passed down through many generations, including diseases.  Recently, scientists have identified every single gene we have, and are continuing to study what they do.  Additionally, they are beginning to learn how our environment and diet can change the “Code”, and how these changes lead to degenerative diseases and cancers. Smiling child by Serlunar

Understanding the “Mother” field of Genomics –  how everything in our environment, all that we put on our skin, and everything we consume through our diet – will help build the foundation to our understanding of Nutrigenomics.

Here’s a fun picnic animation from GenomicsBC  http://genomicseducation.ca/picnic/default.htm . Just click on the stars to see the variety of environmental, and nutritional factors that our genes respond to.

“Change is good” you say?  Sometimes.  In the case of our genes, these changes, or Mutations, are usually not.  Gene Mutations create a new Code, resulting in damage that shortens cell life, encourages disease formation, and negatively affects the way we look and feel.The proud grandparents with their grandchildren back in September of 2007. by aislingeach SO, WHAT IS NUTRIGENOMICS?

“THE MOLECULAR  RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NUTRITION AND THE RESPONSE OF OUR GENES.”

Every thing we eat and put on our skin, goes into our bodies and has an effect on our genes.  The right nutrients promote health, protect our genes from changing or Mutating, and helps them live a healthier and longer life.

Recent scientific studies have identified nutrients in particular plants that provide incredible results in the health and lengthened lifespan of animals.  Currently,  research is underway testing the same in humans, especially with specific disease conditions such as colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, melanoma, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and obesity.

The pigments in food very frequently contain phytochemicals – including many with antioxidant properties – that are essential for overall health in terms of the way we look and feel.  Diets high in antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables provide a wide array of health benefits.  In addition to protecting cells from oxidative stress, antioxidants are known to strengthen the immune system function, reduce cancer risk, prevent macular degeneration, and protect against heart disease.  Eating a variety of different colors ensures that you are ingesting the wide array of antioxidants and nutrients.
