Why Epigenetics matters!!!
Epigenetics, or the controlling of genes, is starting to change the way that we look at health and what we eat. We now know that certain plant based molecules can activate genes (called phytogenetics) by basically irritating them. This turns on the defense (anti-oxidant) system without really causing any damage (or oxidative damage). They are a very slight pro-oxidant which helps your body activate genes to protect your cells. These anti-oxidant genes help defend your cells and even play a role in detoxing heavy metals.
An Illustration of how irritation can heal.
An illustration of how these plant based molecules work is micro-needling. This is where you irritate the skin with little needles whereby causing a response by your skin to produce more collagen. This can decrease wrinkles and help the skin to look younger because it turns on the repair mechanism. Not all irritation (damage) is equal. Cuts do not help the skin look younger and abrasions do not help, but hurt, the skin. Rashes irritate the skin, but do not help. However, very slight irritation (damage) to the skin through small needles can actually help the skin. This gives us a good example of how plant molecules turn on anti-oxidants through a slight pro-oxidant effect.
Not all Damage is Equal
We have known for a while that not all damage is bad. When we exercise our muscles, we first break down the muscle before our body builds it back up stronger. This is, in essence, what phytogenetics (a subclass of epigenetics) is doing. There seems to be a lot of confusion out there about this. People are saying that new phytogenetic (epigenetic) products are pro-oxidant and should not be used. This is not the whole story. We could say that exercise breaks down muscle and therefore is bad for muscle strength. We know this is not true and we also know that these new phytogenetic products are not oxidizing your body.
Why It Matters
This is all nice, but you might ask, "Why does epigenetics matter?". Epigenetics matters because you can change the way your body responses to oxidation and how your body will age. Phytogenetics (a part of epigenetics) can up-regulate an antioxidant system. This will mean your body is better able to handle oxidants and has been shown in animal models to help promote longevity. However, phytogenetics is not just for promoting antioxidants but are also involved in detoxing heavy metals.
When we put phytogenetics together with other nutrients it can assist your body in carrying heavy metals out of your body. This could be especially important if you have amalgam fillings or eat fish a lot. You need your body to be working properly to transport the toxins out of your body. Maximizing your body's ability to detox may help many people who have amalgams and do not want to have them removed. It could also help people who cannot afford to spend thousands or even tens of thousands having them removed. Multi-Wow has the nutrients that have been shown to up-regulate your antioxidant system (you have to take all 4 at once) and it also has ingredients needed to boost your glutathione. These together provide a more holistic picture in helping your body get rid of heavy metals.
These are just a few reasons that epigenetics matter. How you age is very important to your future health. Invest in your future health! Eat good food, exercise, have good relationships and take a good supplement that will promote health in epigenetics and all the vital areas: Eyes, skin, liver, brain, muscle, and bone health. Multi-Wow is the supplement I take for all this and more.
