A Potent Weapon Against Aging
No matter how well we take care of ourselves, the aging of our bodies will start to impact us eventually. Every minute of our lives, our bodies have been waging a war we can’t see; the war to protect and heal us from environmental factors, a bad diet, germs, viruses, injury, stress, and everything else that comes with life. Inevitably, our bodies start to lose some battles and, eventually, the war.
But what if there was something that could ease the burden on our body’s natural defenses and help fight against the things that happen as we age and push back the burdens that come with age? An emerging branch of anti-aging science may have found something that does just that.
What Are Senolytics?
Proper cell regeneration is the cornerstone of health and health aging, impacting every area of our bodies. Our healthy cells continuously divide, regenerate, and are replaced by new cells and stem cells.
Senolytics is a branch of medicine that targets senescent cells. When we’re young, senescent cells are efficiently removed from the body by our immune system or through apoptosis, a process of programmed cell death. As we age, our immune system becomes less able to eliminate these cells.
Senescent cells linger and increase in number. These unhealthy cells emit substances that cause inflammation, the root of many diseases, and turn healthy cells senescent, which eventually leads to tissue damage in the body. Think of them as zombies, they “bite” a healthy cell, and it too becomes a zombie, just like in a horror movie!
These accumulated cells can be the start of many age-related maladies and diseases, including cancer. Ridding the body of these cells can significantly improve our health and lifespan. Senolytics hunt down these faulty cells, stopping their accumulation, thereby slowing down the process of aging at the cellular level.
The Benefits of Senolytics
The potential application of Senolytics is almost endless, treating dozens of age-related illnesses and conditions most people face eventually including:
- Heart disease
- Heart attack
- Sarcopenia (loss of muscle)
- Anxiety disorders
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Disk degeneration
- Liver steatosis
- Pulmonary fibrosis
Unsurprisingly, the best source of senolytics can be found in food compounds.
- Fisetin is a polyphenol found in foods like strawberries, apples, persimmons, and cucumbers.
- Quercetin is a polyphenol found in foods like red onions and kale.
- Resveratrol is a phenol most commonly found in red wine.
- Pterostilbene is a stilbenoid related to resveratrol and is found in almonds, blueberries, and grape leaves.
- Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by plants, primarily found in turmeric.
Should you eat the foods containing all of these compounds? Yes! But you’d have to eat a lot of them, more than any human could eat, to get the senolytic benefit. Luckily you can get all of the benefits with a supplement, Tailor Made Health Senolytic.
