Lipid Peroxidation & Organ Ageing- Block #1
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 aged1, 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.
LIPID PEROXIDATION DAMAGE
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.
