What is Aging?... the accumulation of random damage to the building blocks of life - especially to DNA, certain proteins, carbohydrates and lipids (fats) – that begins early in life and eventually exceeds the bodys self repair capabilities Leonard Hayflick, PhD., UCSF S. Jay Olshanky, PhD., UIC Bruce Carnes, PhD., UIC Scientific American, June 2002; 286(6):92-95
Why Do We Age? Oxidative Stress Damage to DNA (nucleus & mitochondria) Poor DNA Repair Aging and Aging Conditions
DNA Damage – Health Consequences DNA DAMAGE Mutagenic Diseases e.g. cancer Mutagenic Diseases e.g. cancer Toxic Disease e.g. Inflammation Toxic Disease e.g. Inflammation Two possible health consequences The major cause of human disease has been identified as DNA damage by reactive oxygen species. This has been reviewed as a contributing factor for the origin and progression of a number of conditions including aging, autoimmunity, HIV infection and cancer.
Cellular Control of DNA Repair DNA repair of damage No disease Mutagenic and toxic disease Incomplete Complete Gene Deficiency Biochemical Inhibition Review of the cellular control of DNA damage
Results of Poor DNA Repair DNA (gene) chemistry Double stranded helical polymer DNA damage caused by toxins, diet, environment, radiation Repair enzymes / Protein Processes PARP, endonuclease, exonuclease, polymerase, ligase GOOD repair BAD repair GOOD No disease BAD BAD REPAIR CASUES ALTERED GENE EXPRESSION, LEADS TO CHRONIC DISEASES Cancer, autoimmune, aging cardiovascular, inflammatory
AC-11 ® INTRODUCING A NEW CLASS OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS
7 STEPS IN AGING YOUR ENVIRONMENT (Poor diet, stress, pollution, smoking, exercise, sun exposure generate free radicals) OXIDATIVE STRESS GOOD GENE REPAIR equals Antiaging GENE DAMAGE equals Aging ALTERED GENE EXPRESSION Hobbled Proteins (Glycation) Wrong soup mix (Mitochonria function) Misfiring genetic switches (Methylation and acetylation) Immune glitches (Inflammation) Faulty cell communication (Hormone imbalance)
Mitochondrial DNA A single ATP molecule must be recycled within a mitochondrion approximately 1,000 times per day for the body to maintain its energy supply
Quenching Reactive Oxygen Species in the Mitochondrion About 10% of the air we breathe is converted into free radicals in the mitochondria of our cells to produce the energy of life (ATP). Hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical, superoxide, lipid peroxide and singlet oxygen are metabolic mistakes of ATP production. Mitochondria -Primary source of free radical production in cells.
AC-11® Water soluble extract of Uncaria tomentosa; 8% CAEs *, less than 0.05% oxindole alkaloids * Carboxy alkyl esters
AC-11® primary bioactive ingredient has been identified Found in Shayman natural extractions of Uncaria Quinic acid/Quinic acid lactones are significantly more bioactive when purified from AC-11®
Enhance DNA Repair STEP 1.. DNA damage detected. Enzymes uncoil and unzip DNA. (NFk-B inhibition works here also by stopping free radicals that damage DNA) STEP 2.. Uncoiled structure gives access to repair enzymes. STEP 3.. Damaged or misplaced nucleotides are cut out by enzymes. (Active genes are repaired first, then less active genes) STEP 4. New segments are moved into place and the seams are sealed by other enzymes. #4 #1 # #2 #3
NF-kB / DNA repair-- control DNA damage and your health Second primary source of free radicals is inflammation NF-kB inhibition reduces this source Regardless the source, DNA repair removes DNA damage These processes are controlled by dietary factors
