ABOUT GLUTATHIONE AND CELLULAR AGING
Cellular aging is believed to result from genetic changes that prevent the cell from neutralizing damaging free radicals. Considerable attention has been given to the role of free radicals and oxidative damage in relation to cellular aging.
Laboratory studies have shown that cellular aging is genetically encoded and cell death occurs along a predictable schedule of events. The mechanism of cellular aging being genetically controlled is one of the important aspects of aging.
The ability of the cells to maintain their DNA stability and lifespan is high. Cellular aging is a genetically determined process with telomeres being the molecular clock for cellular aging. One of the primary causes of cellular aging is the progressive shortening of the ends of these telomeres as cells divide. As critical telomere lengths are reached, cells become senescent and lose the ability to proliferate.
Most cellular aging is as a direct result of oxidation due to the presence of free radicals. Glutathione your body’s master antioxidant plays a leading role in hunting down, arresting and eliminating free radicals form your system.
