Mitochondria & aging:
metabolism and anti-oxidation
Mitochondria are the energy factories of each cell, and regulate cellular aging through the modulation of the metabolic profile of each cell. Less effective metabolism of brain cells, for example, can lead to decreased cognitive functions. Shifts in metabolism can also lead to insulin resistance, obesity, and fatigue.
Defective mitochondria also lead to release of free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidation, can damage DNA, proteins, and lipids. Early signs of aging can be seen in the lost of skin elasticity, and eventually free radicals causes organs to lose their optimal performances.
OncoNutrition's bioactive peptides target the mitochondria and stimulates the body to either take away defective mitochondria (mitophagy) or repair defective mitochondria. Healthier mitochondria in the tissues and in the blood reduce free radicals and promote better organ functions.
Reducing oxidation, improving metabolism & organ functions
OncoNutrition bioactive peptides help repair the body's mitochondria. After taking the peptides for 8 days, reduced DNA damage in the blood by 30% can be detected. And this corresponds to the reduction in the urine free radicals.
Having better mitochondria also translates into better metabolism. After taking the peptides for a month, blood glucose immediately after a meal can be more effectively metabolized by the body.
After six weeks, liver function is improved by measuring the SGOT level in the blood. SGOT is a liver enzyme. Higher amount of liver enzyme in the body signifies damages to the liver. Taking OncoNutrition's bioactive peptides led to significant decrease in SGOT level within 3 weeks, and after six weeks, the SGOT level has reduced by 54%.
