Health Benefits at a Glance:
DNA is the “blueprint” of life, so making sure that it is healthy is of great importance. That fact is that over time, it will be exposed to toxins from both inside and outside the body. This can gradually damage it. DNA Protection Formula offers a unique combination of nutrients that can all contribute to keeping your gene expression healthy.
Why it Works:
Toxins both inside and outside your body can affect your gene expression negatively. Since your genes are the "code of life", it is important to maintain healthy DNA throughout your life. This especially becomes relevant with advanced age, as these toxins gradually damage the strands over time. Luckily, however, natural supplementation can help you provide your DNA-strands with an extra defense to make sure that you have healthy gene expression throughout your life.
Scientists have documented that certain nutrients can help strengthen the body’s natural DNA defenses against toxins in the environment. Hence, the formula for this product provides a unique combination of natural ingredients (xanthohumol, watercress extract, chlorophyllin, and zinc) to provide a powerful formula to support a healthy gene expression.
The Science Behind the Product:
This product contains a unique combination of four active ingredients that all contribute to bolstering the defenses of your DNA.
Clinical studies show that chlorophyllin binds to special environmental toxins. This inhibits their potential effects on delicate DNA. By binding these toxins the body can, in fact, eliminate them before they can enter the bloodstream [4-8]. Furthermore, it also promotes healthy expression of the protective p53 gene that partially controls the reproduction of cells.
Zinc is an important mineral to the human body because it supports a wide range of biochemical and immunological functions. These include maintenance of your genes. Furthermore, zinc also helps to support the cellular antioxidant defense. One study involving a group of women found that zinc supplementation inhibited strand breaks , which stabilizes genetic expression.
Watercress is a leafy green vegetable which potentially has a lot of health benefits. In a randomized crossover study, researchers found that watercress helps protect DNA .
Xanthohumol is a new addition to the formula and is a flavonoid which is derived from the hops plant. Furthermore, in both clinical and pre-clinical studies, this compound has also been shown to help protect genes from damage. This plays a big role in maintaining a healthy cellular function as well as a healthy cell division [1-3].
