Nrf2 Activation – What is Nrf2?
The key to enhancing antioxidant protection lies in our DNA, and we now understand how to activate the master switch, known as Nrf2 Activation.
What is Nrf2?
Cells are what we are made of, and at the very center of our cellular protective pathway is a protein called “Nrf2” that serves as a “master regulator” of the body’s antioxidant responses. Antioxidant enzymes such as SOD (superoxide dismutase), glutathione and catalase are the body’s defense system – we need these important enzymes in every body function we have! Think of Nrf2 as the ”thermostat” within our cells that senses levels of oxidative stress, when it gets too high it fires up the internal protective mechanisms.
It also regulates anti-inflammatory genes which fight the inflammation process in your body. Another group is antifibrotic genes, they fight the process of scar tissue formation. Scar tissue formation is very good for external wounds as it aids the healing process but internally, namely, on organs, it can be deadly. It’s untreatable and fatal. If scar tissue appears
your heart it’s called heart failure and on your lungs, pulmonary fibrosis. on
Very simply, think of the Nrf2 as a pathway, like a bridge, that allows the messenger protein to communicate from the outside of the cell to the nucleus and attaches itself to the DNA. This causes the DNA to work in a different fashion, to express itself, and to modulate over 200 genes.
These genes play an important role in protecting our health, they improve the ability to metabolize drugs and toxins, to deal with oxidative stress, to reduce inflammation and to also to protect us from age-related diseases like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s)
Simply put – the Nrf2 is the Guardian of our Healthspan. As we get older the Nrf2 pathway becomes less and less active so we have a rising level of oxidative stress and its the most characteristic age-dependent aspect of aging.
What Can Be Done?
Even though free radical damage cannot be stopped there is a product available that has been CLINICALLY PROVEN TO REDUCE OXIDATIVE STRESS by an AVERAGE of 40% in 30 days. and has a cumulative effect month after month.
It’s called: Nrf2 Synergiser. (click on the image below)
