Daily cup improve the quality of life (aging)
Scientists are looking in different directions for the fountain of youth.
Some believe our genes predestine us to die after a given life span and therefore rely on genetic techniques to combat the effects of aging.
the body’s oxidative defense mechanisms deteriorate with aging because of a genetically programmed reduction in the synthesis of natural antioxidants in the cells, leading to a sharp increase in the diseases of old age.
They are investigating ways of slowing the rate of free radical attack in the aged.
In animals, it has been shown that increased antioxidants could increase life span.
There is growing evidence that human diet, supplemented with antioxidants, may help in preventing a variety of diseases such as cancer and heart diseases.
However, it is not conclusively proven that antioxidants could extend life span. Even if it is not possible to extend the human lifespan by anti-oxidants.
These could control cell damage and thus reduce the diseases of old age and improve the quality of life in the elderly.
