Source Naturals Life Force Multiple Energy Activator Addresses the Following Body Systems
Every second of our lives, billions of biochemical reactions are taking place in our bodies. New molecules are produced and spent as old ones are broken down and disposed of. Our metabolism is a massive, complex, yet perfectly orchestrated system of energy that enables us to survive and thrive. In almost every chemical reaction in the body, a spark is needed to energize the reaction. This spark is provided by adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the energy molecule. It is fundamental to our physiology.
Amazingly, the body must produce half its own weight in ATP every day. It is a wise life strategy to give ATP production all the help we can. If this system is not working well we may feel tired and fatigued and our health may be affected. Within each cell there are typically 1,000-2,000 mitochondria. This organelle is the site of three connected, complex, multi-stage biochemical processes - the Glycolytic cycle, the Krebs cycle, and the Electron Transport chain - these produce ATP. Carbohydrates, fats and proteins are digested and enter the energy cycle to manufacture ATP. This requires a huge reserve of nutrients including B-vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and Acetyl L-Carnitine.
Our modern, "on the go" diet of processed, unnatural junk foods is overwhelming our bodies. Drastic increases in refined carbohydrates and sugars have led to health concerns unheard of even a generation ago. Increased blood glucose can lead to excess body weight and inefficient use of insulin... all are part of a spiraling, self-perpetuating cycle that is highly challenging to health. Through this cycle, increased blood sugar can lead to reactions like inflammation and glycation. Excess inflammation is an underlying imbalance that can affect cells and tissues and lead to concerns about our health. Glycation occurs when excess blood sugar binds with protein to produce Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs), compounds that impact healthy cells. Many nutritional supplements can increase insulin efficiency and help maintain blood sugar in a normal range.
During the Plague of the 14th century, one-third of the population of Europe died. The question is: why did the others live, even though they were also exposed to the Yersinia pestis bacteria? The answer may be the strength and responsiveness of their immune systems. The immune system is like an intelligent second brain with the unique ability to identify foreign compounds and to quickly produce the specific defenses needed to combat harmful invaders and protect us. The immune system uses a wide variety of cells and biochemicals located primarily in the blood stream and the gastrointestinal tract, such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. Anyone can significantly strengthen and improve the functionality of the immune system through nutrition, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
Our bodies are a stunning organization of various types of connective tissues. In the form of cartilage and bones, they uphold our bodies; in the form of joints, they allow our mobility; in the form of epidermal tissues - the skin - they form the body's mass and protect us from and connect us to, our environment. As we age, many people experience calcium deficiencies and bone problems. Similarly, joint problems are among the most debilitating aspects of aging. Yet with the proper nutrients and lifestyle changes, the bones and joints can remain strong, flexible, and active well into old age. Likewise, healthy, beautiful skin is a matter of diet and nutrition: the skin should be nourished with fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, and a nutritious diet gives the skin sufficient nutrients and antioxidants for protection.
It is well known that our genes, consisting of DNA, hold the information codes for all of our unique traits, and they regulate all of the structure and function of our tissues and organs. Encoded in the DNA, and "turned on" by hormones or other messengers, are the mechanisms that produce the proteins, enzymes, and other compounds that the cell uses to carry out its differentiated functions. Even though each cell contains every gene for all bodily and mental functions, each cell has the ability to activate only those specific genes needed for that cell's specific function; the other genes remain silent or inactive. Various nutrients, plant extracts, and biochemical compounds can be seen as messengers. We can literally send instructions to our genes to perform healthy activities such as increase memory, burn fat, strengthen an immune response, or turn off gene expression that is detrimental to our health.
Inflammation is for many an underlying biochemical imbalance that can lead to concerns about our health. Inflammation begins as a helpful part of the immune system's defense, but the problem for our health is when this natural defense process doesn't turn off. Because of various environmental triggers and lifestyle factors, such as pollution, stress, or nutrient-deficient junk food diets, the defense system stays on the attack, generating metabolic inflammation and damaging healthy cells and tissues. Our body goes to war with itself. The fire of inflammation, however, can be quenched with dietary, lifestyle and nutritional changes.
Free radicals are unstable, destructive molecules with one missing, unpaired electron. In a process called oxidation, the same process that turns iron to rust, free radicals can impact cells as they steal electrons from healthy molecules, starting a cascade that ages the body and affects the body cell by cell, tissue by tissue. This process is halted with antioxidants. Antioxidants selflessly donate their electrons to stabilize free radicals and prevent their effects. Free radicals are natural by-products of mitochondrial energy generation and they are also the result of constant bombardment by pollutants, toxins, excess sunlight, unnatural foods, and electromagnetic radiation. In 1954, Dr. Denham Haimen first espoused the Free Radical Theory of Aging. As we age, our body's ability to produce innate antioxidants decreases, giving free radicals and the aging they cause the upper hand in our bodies. Supplementation with natural antioxidants can neutralize these harmful compounds.
The liver is a chemical factory, producing digestive and detoxifying enzymes, cholesterol (which at normal levels is vital for brain health and cell membrane integrity), and activating and coenzymating vitamins and minerals for bodily use. The liver is also a clearing station, helping the body detoxify and eliminate the harmful waste products of our metabolism or elements that we consume. The liver's importance is magnified in our industrialized world, where thousands of chemicals, many of which are toxic and never even existed 60 years ago, are entering our bodies as we breathe air, drink water and eat food laced with pollutants, toxic pesticides and hormones, and trans fats. With this heightened level of activity and stress, it is imperative that we give extra support through proper nutrients to this overburdened organ.
The heart is a muscle that must contract without missing a beat about every second of our lives. The cardiovascular system's importance to our health goes beyond the critical function of supplying food and oxygen to all the cells. The blood transports hormones and other messenger molecules that signal the coordination of numerous critical functions, and through the white blood cells, the circulatory system is the site of significant immune protection. Numerous factors can impact circulatory health: the oxidation of molecules, cholesterol levels, homocysteine buildup, fibrin viscosity, lack of nitric oxide, capillary and blood vessel strength and integrity, metabolic inflammation, and energy generation for a heartbeat. Maintaining these and other functions is an intricate balancing act. That balance can be provided by the intelligent use of nutrition.
The human brain is the most complex structure known to man; much of how it functions and enables us to think, feel, contemplate abstract concepts, plan our future, and control many bodily processes is yet to be discovered. The function of the brain and nervous system is based on the unique structure of nerve cells (also called neurons), which take in and send out messages in the form of electrical impulses running through the phospholipids and minerals of the cell membranes. Although it is only two percent of our body weight, the brain consumes 20 percent of our energy. Neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages from one neuron to another, must be produced in adequate quantities to support mood, intelligence, concentration, assertiveness and calmness. This creates a tremendous need for nutritional fuel and energy. Brain functioning can be significantly improved by the right quantity and quality of nutrients.
At any moment, millions of biochemical reactions are taking place in or around our nearly 100 trillion cells. To function at high levels of health, our metabolism is constantly binding molecules together and breaking them apart. In a way, our health is a function of the ease, speed, and coordination of these myriad reactions, processes named methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, and sulfation. Hormones are messengers that tell the body to begin its various physiological activities, such as growth or sexual development. Hormones are produced in our glands and are often triggered by the brain. They are part of the intricate mechanism that makes us humans with unique personalities.
Through phospholipids such as omega-3 or omega-6 in the membrane of the cell, the hormones transfer important messages to the nucleus of the cell where the DNA produces the proteins and enzymes needed to carry out the brain's desires. With age, as metabolism slows, can come a loss of effective function, which in turn can lead to a multitude of problems associated with aging. By proactively supporting metabolic and hormonal processes you can maintain youthful activity within your body.
