Mitochondria: Energy generation

Scientists at OncoNutrition have discovered that the anti-aging property of Ambryx peptides is through its ability to activate the gene ATG5, which recycle damaged mitochondria, leading to increased metabolism, faster cell repair, and slowing down signs of aging.

Repair & recycling of mitochondria is crucial for sustained health 

 Autophagy is the “biological recycling system” that breaks down old or dangerous proteins and turns them into fresh building blocks for the cell.  Buildup of damaged proteins and dysfunctional metabolism can lead to diseases such as type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer.

 

Mitochondria is the energy generator of each cell, similar to the battery for each cell.  Each cell has many batteries, or mitochondria, to support metabolism. 

As we age, these mitochondria become less efficient or damaged, causing metabolic syndromes, free radical generation, and chronic inflammation.  Cancer cells are known to have mutated mitochondria, allowing them to grow uncontrollably.  

A unique product on the market, OncoNutrition peptides can effectively repair, recycle damaged mitochondria, helping normal cells to function properly, and causing cancer cells with mutant mitochondria to undergo apoptosis.

Reducing Chronic Inflammation

From arthritis to cancer, chronic inflammation is the root cause of many age-related illnesses.  The initial signs may be aches and stiffness, but chronic inflammation eventually damage blood vessels, immune system, and organs, leading to cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and neuro-degenerative diseases.

Graceful Aging

When a mitochondria is not functional, like a leaky battery, it releases free radicals that damages DNA, proteins, and lipids.  These damages result in lost of skin elasticity, lack of energy, and other signs of aging.     

OncoNutrition's bioactive peptides may reverse these signs of aging through mitochondria maintenance, increase the body's production of SOD (superoxide dismutase), an enzyme that combats free radicals, and reduction of pro-inflammatory factors.
