There are a variety of NRF2 Activator products and ingredients on the market. The challenge is to know which ones are most effective. Some products are natural and others are synthetic (with potential side effects).
Many scientists describe the aging process as the effect of oxidative stress on the cells caused by destructive molecules called free radicals. When you’re young, your body fights free radicals effectively by producing its own antioxidants. But as you grow older, your body produces more free radicals and fewer antioxidants to fight the battles of aging and disease.
We would suggest looking for products that have been proven to be effective and documented through scientific studies. A good NRF2 product will have proof that they are able to signal your body’s genes to produce special antioxidant enzymes, SOD (superoxide dismutase) CAT (catalase) that work together as the body’s first line of defense against free radicals.*
These enzymes are “catalytic,” which means that SOD and CAT are not used up when they neutralize free radicals. A single daily caplet of an effective NRF2 product creates a cascade of your body’s natural catalytic antioxidants that are able to destroy millions of free radicals per second, on a continuous basis–24/7.*
The most effective NRF2 activator that we are aware of can provides you with thousands of times more antioxidant power than any food or conventional supplement.* In fact, you would need to consume the antioxidants found in 375 oranges, 87 glasses of red wine or about 120 vitamin C tablets (500mg) a day to neutralize the
Nrf2 is a protein messenger contained in every cell of the body that sends information to the cell’s DNA. That DNA consists of about 25,000 genes and the products of those genes make you who you are and what you are. They’re unique for each person. DNA is what makes you a human being, what gives you your personality, what gives you your physical traits.
When this protein messenger called Nrf2 is activated, it enters the nucleus of every cell and it turns on several hundred of these 25,000 genes. And the genes that it turns on, or turns up, are known collectively as “survival genes.” What is a survival gene? These genes enable cells to survive in the face of several different kinds of stress, especially oxidative stress, which is due to the overproduction of free radicals and other oxidants.
Nrf2 also affects another hundred or so genes by turning them down, not up. Included in these genes are pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic genes.
Inflammation accompanies many different disease processes. Everyone is familiar with inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, but anytime you suffer traumatic injuries, sprain your ankle or bruise yourself, there
What are Pro-Fibrotic genes?
