Cellular Senescence means that cells cannot divide due to multiple reasons, with inflammation posing as one of the greatest. Cellular Senescence hastens the development of chronic diseases like cardiovascular, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, dementias, cancer, immune and kidney dysfunction, IBD, and osteoarthritis among many others.
Current research has shown that certain plant polyphenols (i.e. quercetin and fisetin) are strong senolytic agents (molecules that stop senescence), and have exciting potential for reducing and preventing senescence, which reduces the risk for developing chronic disease, and even reverses the onset of chronic illnesses and geriatric syndrome. Research is now focused on the utilization of senolytic molecules in therapies.
The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity contains both of these powerful phenolic flavonoids, quercetin and fisetin, within its high-active fruits and vegetables. Daily dosing at 1 tsp supports the body’s ability to to fight against chronic disease. (See Further Notes below)
Further notes on cellular senescence:
Chronic low-grade inflammation (LGI) in the body is an etiological factor in chronic disease and it is also a causative force in cells going into senescence. Cellular senescence is characterized as a state where cells: (1) lose their ability to divide and renew their healthy functionality; (2) become resistant to apoptosis (cell death); and (3) increase their production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and secret into their external environment pro-inflammatory cytokines, bradykines, prostenoids, miRNAs, damage-associated molecular pattern proteins (DAMPs), and other pro-inflammatory mediators, chemokines that attract immune cells. In other words, these cells create more inflammation; more collateral damage that can lead to pathology. This condition is called a senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP).
Senescent cells have been identified at sites of pathology in multiple diseases. They accumulate in adipose tissue in diabetes and with age-related metabolic dysfunction, osteoarthritic joints, the aorta in vascular hypo-reactivity and atherosclerosis and the lung in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Transplantation of small numbers senescent cells around the knee joint can cause osteoarthritis (Zhu, Y., et al. 2015).
Therefore, the discovery of strong senolytic molecules present in certain vegetables and fruits that are able to delay, prevent, or alleviate a number of chronic diseases is very exciting. The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity is a great starting point to reduce inflammation and deeply nourish our cells with the nutrients they need to function healthily.

Our findings here give support for the speculation that these agents [senolytics] may one day be used for treating cardiovascular disease, frailty, loss of resilience, including delayed recovery or dysfunction after chemotherapy or radiation, neurodegenerative disorders, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, other bone and joint disorders, and adverse phenotypes related to chronologic aging. Theoretically, other conditions such as diabetes and metabolic disorders, visual impairment, chronic lung disease, liver disease, renal and genitourinary dysfunction, skin disorders, and cancers could be alleviated with senolytics (Zhu,Y. et al., 2017).
