Eat better nutrition today. We’re learning it’s more important than ever, and easier than ever. to make the best lifestyle choices.
Health scientists have uncovered a cellular “alarm bell.” One triggering mechanism that can “turn on” up to 200 genes that are responsible for cell repair, detoxification of carcinogens, protein and lipid metabolism, antioxidant protection and other actions.
You can trigger this natural health security system with simple lifestyle nutrition changes. Scientists call this alarm Nrf2.
“[Nrf2] may well become the the most extraordinary therapeutic and most extraordinary preventative breakthrough in the history of medicine.” Researchers at Washington State University in a 2015 Study.
“[Nrf2] Is the longevity assurance factor.” Researchers at Oregon State University in 2015.
Chronic Conditions Nrf2 Impacts
Raising Nrf2 levels has been shown to lessen or eliminate almost every chronic condition currently plaguing american culture, including:
Spinal cord injury
A magic bullet? Not so fast. But small changes can make a huge difference. Healthcare is interconnected.
Historically medicine has focused on how various diseases differ from one another.
We’re not learning a majority of diseases stem from chronic inflammation. The root causes of many chronic diseases similar underlying mechanisms in the body. We can proactively impact with lifestyle choices.
Oxidative stress is the root cause of chronic inflammation in the body. [define]
Nrf2 is a stress-sending genetic transcription factor. It appears to be a master regulator dictating how cells respond to oxidative damage and other stress conditions.
Health, the most basic level, is an organism’s ability to adapt to stress. Chronic inflammation stresses your cells triggering all sorts of internal domino effects including cardiovascular issues, depression and cancer.
Nrf2, when activated in your body, produces complex and extraordinarily well coordinated enxymatic antioxidant responses. That’s science gibberish for Nrf2 protects your cells and genes from chronic conditions that make you age faster.
The oxidative stress reduction impacts at the gene level. That’s right, better doesn’t just impact your today, it impacts how your genes and epigenetics respond for long term generational health impact.
Scientists unanimously agree, raising Nrf2 levels may be the most important health promoting approach in the foreseeable future.
Enough Science, Just Tell Me How
But that sounds “sciencey” and complicated, I can’t do that on my own. And I don’t want to take a bunch of pills.
We have all heard, “eat more antioxidants to be health” but science is now shedding light on the incredible power of Nrf2-controlled antioxidant mechanisms.
It may be a lot more simple than you think. Eat better.
The Nrf2 Food List:
Broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts and all cruciferous vegetables
Yellow onions & scallions
Curcumin (indian spice)
Small changes for big results, it’s that simple. Discuss any changes in your lifestyle with your health professional.
