Have you ever wondered what “causes” aging?
The symptoms of aging – joint pain, muscle atrophy, brain fog, loss of bone density, and more – are complex and caused by a variety of factors. Most of us know that we begin to absorb essential vitamins & minerals less effectively as we get older. Joints wear down over time, causing arthritis.
But one factor that isn’t taken into consideration is called “cellular senescence.”
Cellular senescence is the point at which our cells stop dividing and growing due to damage or lack of necessary components.
As cells age, they lose their ability to actively divide. Things like oxidative stress, a lack of essential vitamins, and more can “speed up” this aging process.
The good news? There are ways you can combat this process – naturally, and at home.
