Oxygen and Aging
What Causes Aging?
The basic concept of aging is that the body loses its ability to efficiently deal with damaged cells and cannot keep ahead in regenerating new cells. It is like falling behind in a race.
Free radicals are the primary cause of aging.
Free radicals are unstable molecules in the body created as part of the waste products or normal cellular metabolic activities. Usually molecules contain electrons in pairs. When there is a loss or gain of an electron, this destabilizes the molecule. It becomes highly reactive and destabilizes other molecules. These unstable molecules are what are called “free radicals”. The body attempts to balance and neutralize these free radicals, but over a period of time free radical damage accumulates damaging skin cells.
While the aging process is normal, some individuals experience an overabundance of free radical production.
Sometimes this is caused by pollution. Highly processed foods, cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption, overuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications, prolonged stress and anxiety can also be responsible for free radical damage.
