- Anti-mutagenic activity.
- Formulated to combat aging.
- Combines a number of antioxidants that protect against oxidative stress.
DNA Repair is a completely new formula that protects and increases our ability to repair DNA, the carrier of genetic information.
Achieving or maintaining optimal health depends first and foremost on good cellular health. The main focus of current scientific research into extending life expectancy is almost certainly the protection and repair of damaged DNA.
Our cells multiply every day but the fragile DNA within each cell is vulnerable to damage by a range of factors including free radical attack and lack of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. When DNA is damaged, cell function becomes impaired, potentially to the point where cells are unable to self-replicate and divide. In fact, DNA suffers damaging events on a daily basis, but when entire generations of cells are affected, it compromises the vital reserves of tissues and organs, dramatically accelerating the aging process.
Current scientific thinking supports the theory that it is the gradual destruction of DNA which leads first to accelerated aging and then to overall impairment of the body, with a decline in capacity for self-repair that becomes increasingly ineffective with age. Self-replication of cells thus takes place in a damaged or corrupted form and cell division subsequently ceases to occur. This degenerative process can, however, be impeded with selective use of nutritional supplements. DNA Repair contains specific plant extracts, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that act synergistically to support DNA repair processes.
This complex can be taken for long periods, either on its own or combined with cycloastragenol which also stimulates DNA repair by activating telomerase, or even with pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) which protects mitochondrial DNA.

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defenses, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Aging is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the aging process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
