You and Your Cell Signaling

mitichondria-inside-cellCell signaling plays a pivotal role in all degenerative conditions that are the main focus of all disease today.

I am holding a webinar Monday October 3 at 6pm Pacific to explain more about this process and how it uncovers a whole new approach to nutritional science. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

There is a cell signaling process called “The  Nrf2 Pathway” that Dr David Perlmutter says is

the master regulator of antioxidant, detoxification and cell defense gene expression. It is now recognized that a variety of natural products act directly upon the Nrf2 pathway activating this life-sustaining part of our DNA. These include sulforaphane, as mentioned, turmeric, green tea extract, as well as coffee”

It is for these reasons that so much research has been carried out trying to explore how activating this life-sustaining pathway may have critically important applications for our health and longevity.

The Nrf2 pathway has been especially studied in various brain degenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, as well as autism, to name a few.

In a University of Colorado Study titled, The clinical potential of influencing Nrf2 signaling in degenerative and immunological disorders, they concluded,

The Nrf2 cell signaling pathway has been demonstrated to contribute to the regulation of a wide variety of antioxidant, detoxification, and cell survival genes. Under normal conditions, Nrf2 activation plays a largely protective, beneficial role, which has led researchers to examine ways in which individuals might harness Nrf2 activation for health benefits, including exercise, diet, dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals.”
