My 13th book, Best Future You, is out!
Over the next several weeks, I’ll be posting excerpts from the book and blogging frequently about the main concept in the book – which is the idea of harnessing your body’s internal cellular biochemistry to achieve true balance in body, mind, and spirit – and in doing so, help you to become your “Best Future You” in terms of how you look, how you feel, and how you perform on every level.
Chapter 4 – Don’t Take Antioxidants— Make Antioxidants
Above, I discussed some of the powerful individual herbals that have been shown to enhance the activation of CDR. In a recent presentation that I delivered at the first-ever scientific symposium dedicated to understanding the coordination of CDR pathways (January 2015 it Cambridge University in England), I outlined the ability of certain combinations of phytonutrients to display “synergy” in the ability to activate CDR pathways. Synergy refers to the ability of a combination of ingredients to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects. It’s like finding that instead of one plus one equaling two (what we call an “additive” effect), we find that one plus one equals five or ten (a “synergistic” effect).
At the Cambridge University conference, I presented a range of scientific data on blends herbs with demonstrated effects in reducing oxidative and inflammatory stress. The findings of these studies, which show a definite array of benefits for inducing CDR and significantly reducing cellular stress, have been published in several prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journals (many of which you can locate on research databases such as www.PubMed.gov).
The sections that follow will outline examples of CDR activation, reduction of cellular stress, and health benefits in several important areas: cancer, cardiovascular disease, brain & neurological conditions, skin, and other tissues and functions.
Thanks for reading – tune in for the next installment about “CDR and…Cancer.”
