Today we talk about one of the topics that are most dear to Mytho: cellular aging!
One of the causes of cellular aging is linked to the accumulation of senescent cells in the organs and tissues of our body.
Japanese researchers from the University of Kobe found that an enzyme promotes cellular senescence by producing an excess of reactive oxygen species, the so-called ROS.
The discovery was reported last year in “Life Science Alliance,” a scientific journal created by a world-class partnership between EMBO Press and Rockefeller University Press.
Maintaining good health in old age is an urgent problem, particularly in societies with “super-aging” populations like ours. An enzyme called d-aminoacid oxidase (DAO) would promote the de-amination of amino acids, oxidizing them and transforming them into other by-products including reactive oxygen species (ROS). It has been seen that reducing the DAO also reduces the production of ROS and slows down cellular senescence. ROS certainly play a fundamental role in cellular aging and in the onset of some neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s but also tumors, diabetes and atherosclerosis.
Attention! As always it is a question of balance: ROS have beneficial actions on the immune system and if their overproduction has a negative effect, a complete inhibition would have negative effects so it would be better not to exceed in the opposite direction.
The amino acids contained in the MYTHOXAN product line activate mitochondriongenesis, slow down aging, stimulate autophagy and apoptosis of senescent cells. They favor the synthesis of new proteins and the balance of oxidative systems by acting in concert with each other.
The association between essential amino acids and some natural substances with senolytic (anti-aging) action can help reduce the micro-inflammatory state present in all chronic diseases, improve energy production and slow down the progression of the disease.
Medical research in recent years has committed huge resources to the discovery of drugs and natural substances that can lead us on the path to healthy longevity without side effects.
We also have ideas and projects in this sense, in a few weeks we plan to share them with you.
