Repairing Damaged DNA Yields Better Health
Feb 29, 2016 02:44PM
DNA, arguably the most important material in the body, provides its basic coding along with information influencing aging processes and susceptibility to diseases. Accumulating damage to DNA throughout life can have a profound impact on our health. Such damage might be caused by stress, poor diet, exposure to pollution, lack of sleep or exposure to the sun, as well as other factors. Symptoms sometimes felt as we age, including lack of focus and energy, depression, disease, weakened immune system and weight problems, can be connected to the state of our DNA.
Improving the integrity of even a small percentage of cellular DNA can have a positive effect on healthy cell function in the body. A naturally safe, water-soluble botanical extract called ac-11, derived from a wild plant indigenous to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and Peru, helps remove lesions in DNA caused by the environment and stress. The extract can be applied directly to the skin in a topical formulation to repair sun damage and slow the aging process or orally to reduce pain and fatigue, assist with weight loss and control inflammation.
