"Slowing The Aging Process"
Why does a Galapagos Turtle live Hundreds of years, a Sequoia
tree for thousands. whereas man only averages 78 years.
friend the Dog only lasts about 14 years? What makes
us grow old
and Die? Studies by such eminent research scientists
as Drs. Den-ham Harman, William Pryor, and Johan Bjorksten first uncovered
evidence that certain foods release extremely reactive
electrons dubbed “Free Radicals” which attack our system
breaking down tissue constituents, cellular membranes
genetic material, resulting in disease and ‘aging'.
Then Scientists at
Monsanto’s Research Laboratory,
investigating an antioxidant incorporated in poultry
feed to keep it
from spoiling, discovered that the antioxidant properties
of santoquin slowed the aging process not only of the feed, but the chickens consuming it were living three times their
'Normal' Life Span.
The "Free Radical” theory of aging, that certain compounds
referred to as Antioxidants, can slow down or even terminate
chain of Free Radical reactions and thus actually slow
aging process; is now well documented. As far back as
1966, Dr. Harman demonstrated that the life span of mice should be (and
was) increased by 45% simply by feeding them diets containing
but 1% antioxidants. In human terms, this equated to a life
expectancy of approximately 100 years.
Such research resulted in major breakthroughs in the fight
against aging. Studies continue with new antioxidants
been found to dramatically in-crease life span.
