What Is Oxidative Stress?
Redox (reduction-oxidation) stress and aging go hand in hand. When you realize that the aging process is sped up, or possibly caused, when cells sustain damage then you realize that aging is not the natural process you thought it was. If you could slow this damage then you could slow the aging process itself.
As far as stress and health conditions, the possibilities are astounding. This type of stress may be one of the causes or even the main cause of conditions such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. These are the reasons why an understanding of the nature of stress is so important.
What Exactly Is Oxidative Stress?
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules within your body. They find their way into your body from interactions with sources such as the sun, your environment, and your body itself produces them. These free radicals interact with the cells in your body.
They don’t just interact with the cells in your body. They damage the cells. They can cause damage to proteins, membranes, and genes. This damage weakens the cells leaving your body vulnerable to illness and leaving your body’s cells less able to reproduce themselves. When your cells cannot replicate themselves then you cells age more quickly than before.
Can This Condition Be Avoided?
In part, this abnormal redox can indeed be avoided. Because much of the stress that your body experiences comes from environmental factors, much of it can be avoided. The feasibility of this avoidance, however, is another question.
This condition probably cannot be avoided entirely seeing as how your body itself produces the free radicals that cause it. Theoretically, the complete avoidance or neutralization of free radicals is a fascinating prospect. After all, if these free radicals contribute so significantly to disease and to the aging process itself then what could be accomplished if they were removed or neutralized entirely?
Oxidative stress is a process that goes on inside the body and most people are not even aware of it. They should be. This process can contribute to or possibly even cause certain serious diseases. More than that, it could have a hand in making people get older before they actually have to.
KANGEN WATER contains a huge amount of hydrogen ions which act as a very powerful antioxidant and therefore help your body prevent disease and ageing. Now imagine the feeling if you drink 2-3 liters of KANGEN WATER per day…for the next 15years! It’s never too late to feel young again!
