THERE ARE SEVERAL FACTORS THAT EVEN ACCELERATE THE SHORTENING OF OUR TELOMERES AND WITH THAT OUR SPEED OF AGING.
OXIDATIVE STRESS PRODUCED THROUGH FREE RADICALS
Free radicals are mainly produced through external factors like: smoking, alcohol consumption, environmental pollution and chronicle stress. However – the main source of the free radicals are the (aging) mitochondria in our cells. These reactive oxygen species free radicals cause severe cell damage. The accumulation of these damages leads to functional losses, aging, illnesses and finally to death!
LOW THRESHOLD INFLAMMATIONS
Caused by Pro-inflammatory Cytokines that is produced from mouth and teeth inflammations as well as from nutritional or body fat. These negative factors shorten our telomeres and with that damage, our cells age faster. We grow older faster, get ill quicker and finally, die earlier!
