Biologically speaking, aging is a slow deterioration of cell function, mostly caused by free radicals, e.g. aggressive cell metabolites.
Every cell has an astonishing capacity to repair the damage that occurs every day, every minute, every second.
At one point, however, the repair system itself is subject to free radical attack, and this is when the ageing process starts (around the age of 30).
Therefore, blocking free radicals, e.g. by vitamin intake, is one important approach to reducing the speed of the ageing process.
„ Every cell has an astonishing capacity to repair the damages occurring every day, every minute, every second.
Nature designed our bodies to last approximately 30 years, i.e. to reproduce and care for our offspring until they have reached the reproductive age.
It may sound cynical, but beyond the age of 30, we are useless from a biological point of view.
The repair mechanisms all our cells are equipped with are no longer needed.
This is why, beyond the age of 30, we have to actively provide ourselves with such repair systems in order to age in a happy and healthy way.
