The journal Neurochemistry International just published an article on Aging, in particular, on how to slow down the aging process.
Two research scientists, Sharma and Mehdi (2023), breakdown for us the process of aging due to oxidative stress (SO) and how the function of hormesis creates homeostasis and better adaptation in the body, to slow down cellular degradation.
The major theory of aging is seen through the accumulation of oxidative damage in the cells, in other words, damage to cells by reactive oxygen species (ROS). This process of aging is believed to be also behind many health disorders, chronic illnesses.
Described a little differently: the balance between oxidation and anti oxidation processes is disturbed by excess of oxidants and a compromise in the efficacy of the antioxidant defense mechanism.
Alongside oxidative damage, other conditions, inner and outer, such as inflammation and immuno-senescence (deterioration of the immune system), aggravated by unhealthy life styles (lack of exercise, poor diet, smoking etc), environmental toxins, infections, and of course, stress - all lead to diseases and rapid aging of the body.
We have discussed hormetic approaches in our last few communications, examining the effect small amounts of specific nutrients, that together form a potent mix of polyphenols, nudges the body toward health.
Sharma and Mehdi (2023) examine the anti aging power of plants and nutrients through the process of adaptation, from losing homeostasis from oxidative stress and other external factors, to creating mild overcompensation (from nutrients, exercise, dietary changes etc.) to the re-establishment of homeostasis.
As is typical of the human condition, simple is not necessarily easy, and creating this equilibrium in the body and mind does take some purposeful practice on our part. Diet, exercise and hormetic type nutrients that instigate the body to create homeostasis, all work together beautifully.
