The 9 Causes of Ageing
1) Oxidative Damage
LUMITY’s approach is to select the most effective anti-oxidants available and offer them in quantities large enough to give real results. Lumity contains the super-effective, multi-tasking antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, coenzyme Q10, zinc and selenium, but it is l-cysteine that gives LUMITY its game-changing antioxidant power.
2) Cellular Energy Decline
LUMITY provides the mitochondria with the nourishment they need to function efficiently, as they did in youth, and also contains the most effective antioxidants to protect the mitochondria from oxidative damage.
The three most effective nutrients at optimising mitochondrial health and function are l-carnitine, coenzyme q10 and magnesium. LUMITY contains these three super-nutrients in sufficient quantities to offer a new level of vitality.
3) Accumulation of Cellular Debris
A substance that greatly improves the elimination of cellular debris is acetyl-l- carnitine. It is found most abundantly in red meat, as the name indicates, and, as lower consumption of red meat has been widely recommended in the last few decades, our levels of acetyl-l-carnitine are often far below those required for optimal health. Supplementation therefore can make a big difference.
What is Glycation? It is the haphazard bonding of proteins or lipids with sugar to form non-functioning structures in the body called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs).
Some AGEs have been implicated in diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. Glycation damages collagen in skin and is responsible for the wrinkling and sagging common in ageing skin. Glycation also depletes the skin of it’s natural moisturizer, hyaluronic acid. The body uses Carnosine a unique dipeptide to block glycation. Carnosine levels in the body decline with age. LUMITY uses the amino acid alanine because it more effectively upgrades the stores of carnosine in the body, compared to taking carnosine supplements which are broken down in the digestive tract and not absorbed. Alanine is also a powerful antioxidant, an immune system booster and an important source of energy for muscle.
5) DNA damage
DNA damage can be recognised by enzymes in the cell and repaired by copying the relevant undamaged sequence from the complementary DNA strand. Mutations in which neither strand of DNA contains the correct template for repair are no longer recognized as errors and, therefore, will not be repaired by the body. If the mutation impairs the survival of the cell then the effects of the damage are self-limiting. However, if the mutation does not impair the cell’s ability to survive and replicate, the multiplication of mutant cells, especially in the frequently-dividing cells, can give rise to cancer. In contrast, DNA damage and mutations in infrequently-dividing cells is a prominent cause of aging and age related conditions. LUMITY protects and repairs DNA that leads to the expression of youth and efficiency over ageing and decline, by ensuring the correct functioning of cells.
6) Telomere Shortening
Every time a cell divides, its telomeres, the protective caps at the end of chromosomes, shorten. When telomeres become too short, the cell dies. The speed at which they shorten is indicative of the body’s rate of ageing.
Telomerase is the enzyme that helps maintain the length of telomeres by repairing the lost sequences of the DNA at the end of the chromosome caps that is lost with each cell division. With the presence of telomerase, each dividing cell can replace the lost end of telomeres and any single cell can then keep on dividing unbounded.
While the above-mentioned unbounded growth property has excited many researchers, caution is warranted in exploiting this property, as exactly this same unbounded growth is a crucial step in enabling cancerous growth.
The persistent low-grade attack on all body tissues caused by chronic inflammation precedes and characterises most degenerative diseases. It impairs the functioning and repair of tissues and cells and accelerates ageing.
Increasing dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids generally decreases inflammation, whereas increasing dietary intake of omega-6 fatty acids increases inflammatory markers. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the typical Western diet is about 16:1, yet it is estimated that humans evolved on a diet with an omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of about 1:1. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil is 1:4, which helps redress the balance without the introduction of contaminants, such as heavy metals and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), often present in fish oils.
Tumeric has been proven to counteract inflammation more effectively than many drugs and it is a natural, safe substance. As inflammation is central to cancer initiation, promotion and metastasis, turmeric is a powerful ally against cancer.
LUMITY contains flaxseed oil and turmeric, as well as, l-carnitine, coenzyme q10 and l-cysteine, which are all very effective anti-inflammatory ingredients.
8) Insulin Resistance
Over-activation of insulin, due to the composition of our diets, makes cells progressively resistant to insulin as a form of self-protection against continual bombardment. If glucose is not allowed into the cells then it remains in the blood stream, which prompts the production of more insulin in a vicious cycle that exacerbates the problem. It also leads to increased glycation and cellular energy decline by stifling the fuel supply to the cell.
How does the body deal with insulin resistance? Muscle cells lose their ability to respond to insulin first and fat cells are the last to become insulin resistant, so they keep on taking in extra fuel and nutrients. Muscle cells are designed to burn fat while fat cells are designed to store it. As fat cells multiply, more insulin receptors signal to the pancreas to produce more insulin – a cycle that leads to obesity and degenerative diseases.
LUMITY contains the most effective nutrients known to combat insulin resistance: l-carnitine and coenzyme Q10 help keep glucose and insulin levels in the blood lower. Omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil increase insulin sensitivity at the cellular membrane by increasing the fluidity of the cell membrane. Obesity-associated insulin resistance, linked to the production of inflammatory signalling molecules in fat cells, can be sharply mitigated by L-cysteine through regulation of the genes.
LUMITY also contains magnesium, an important muscle relaxant and a critical mineral required for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the cell. When the cell is insulin resistant, magnesium cannot be stored. Without the relaxing effects of magnesium, the muscles of the blood vessels contract, peripheral vascular circulation is compromised, leading to hypertension and further reduction of glucose and insulin delivery to the cell. Separately, without sufficient intracellular magnesium, the energy production cycle in the mitochondria is less efficient and the body experiences an energy shortage, which triggers accelerated ageing.
9) Hormonal Decline
Repair and regeneration is essential to maintaining youthful health and appearance. In youth, a healthy surge of human growth hormone (HGH) released while we sleep takes care of all the repair, renewal and regeneration needs of the body’s tissues. However, as we age, falling levels of HGH correspond to a loss of youthfulness and vitality and result in extra body fat, reduced muscle tissue, slow healing, lack of elasticity in the skin and reduced immune function.
Many people have advocated the benefits of hormone replacement therapies. However, the use of substances such as GH (Growth Hormone), DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) and Pregnenolone does nothing to actually improve the body’s own natural hormonal production, but instead actually results in lower natural hormonal levels leading to the need for higher supplementation.
What the body actually needs to sustain youthful levels of HGH is a unique amino-acid combination that promotes HGH release from the pituitary gland by providing the building blocks for hormone synthesis and by removing an impediment to HGH release, somatostatin, that increases with age.
This combination is l-arginine, l-lysine and l-glutamine. These three amino acids taken before sleep help restore youthful levels of HGH release to give tangible benefits, including healthy, more youthful skin; healthy lean muscle; greater strength and endurance; a stronger, more responsive immune system; stronger energy levels, especially in the morning upon waking up; and improved mental clarity and alertness.
LUMITY’s bedtime capsules provide the effective combination of l-arginine, l-lysine and l-glutamine to promote the release of human growth hormone during the first phase of sleep in order to ensure that all the restoration, repair and regeneration the body needs is completed before the body re-enters its awake cycle. LUMITY bedtime capsules harness the rejuvenating quality of sleep as well as improving the body’s natural biorhythmic cycles ensuring better sleep at night and better alertness during the day.
