Lipid Peroxidation & Organ Ageing

Lipid peroxidation damage accumulates as we get older causing organ ageing.

Our body contains natural lipid peroxidation defense mechanisms, but no matter the quantity of such mechanisms, everyone suffers from the cumulated damage as they aged
1, 2.

Accumulated lipid peroxidation damage has a negative effect on our health. Lipid peroxidation damage is one of the main causes of age-related organ ageing and diseases1, 2, 3.

When the amount of damage is extensive, cells in our organs can no longer function, which will cause our tissues to degenerate and eventually die2, 3.

Some cells, like those found in the heart, liver, lungs, kidneys and brain, are most affected by lipid peroxidation because they are exposed to these damages more frequently.

Scientific evidence has shown that
lipid peroxidation damage in organs
can be reduced16.

The amount of lipid peroxidation defence in our body decline as we get older2.

An organic molecule called 3’-deoxyadenosine has been shown to slow and even reverse the effect of lipid peroxidation damage to organ that happens as we age.

Exposing organs and human cells to 3’-deoxyadenosine slow-down organ ageing and allow organs to function efficiently as though they were younger16, 17.

There are other ways to slow down the effect of organ ageing and related diseases: reduce stress, stop smoking, lose weight, exercise more and eat a healthier diet.

Lipid peroxidation has been connected to premature organ ageing & related diseases1, 2.

Mounting evidence shows a strong connection between lipid peroxidation damage and organ ageing1.
