Avoid DNA Damage…By Drinking These Teas…


Why Avoid Genetic (DNA) Damage?…Why it Matters…

• Disease Prevention…

• Increase Longevity


Aging is the slow accumulation of cellular DNA damage due to a decreasing ability to repair it…


This Results in low-level Inflammation, highly characteristic of Aging, and Oxidative Stress, a condition in which free radicals overpower the body’s internal antioxidant system…


What IS DNA Damage?...

An Alteration in The Chemical Structure of DNA…Such as a break in a strand of DNA…


How Does DNA Damage Occur?...What are the sources of DNA damage?

· UV light

· Chemicals

· ionizing radiation

· metabolism/reactive oxygen species

· DNA replication errors


What Causes DNA Damage?...

• Free Radicals

• Mistakes In DNA Replication (mutations)…

• Errors During DNA Transcription…


Primary Causes Leading To DNA Damage…Genetic Damage Is Aggravated By:

· Our Modern Food System

· Lifestyles

· Negative Stress…


Oxidative Damage…or “Indirect” DNA Damage…

Endogenous (internal) or Exogenous (external) Free Radicals react with biomolecules in cells…Including DNA

Implicated In:

· Mutagenesis

· Carcinogenesis

· Aging


What do Free Radicals Do?...The Pathological Role of Free Radicals:

· Rheumatoid arthritis

· Diabetes Mellitus

· Liver damage

· Cataract

· Cardiovascular diseases

· Neurodegenerative diseases

· Cancer

· Aging


Have a look at these DNA Damage Contributors…

· Inflammation…

· Oxidative Stress/Free Radical Damage

· Sun Exposure

· Smoking

· A Diet rich in Simple Carbohydrates and Low in Protein

· A Diet low in Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

· Genetics

· Stress

· Poor Sleep Patterns

Unmanaged Stress Shortens Telomeres…

· Telomeres are protective DNA protein complexes at the end of our chromosomes…protective tips…

· Telomere/DNA chain length is directly related to longevity.

· Over-production of cortisol, the stress hormone damages telomeres allowing DNA chain unraveling...

· Stress increases Cortisol production…


Stress can prematurely age us by damaging Telomers…

Tea can create calm, reduce stress, reduce Chromosome damage, reduce free radical damage, improve immunity, memory, bone & skin health and sleep quality…plus much more…

Emotional Calm Mitigates Stress…

Managing Stress…Reduces Excess Cortisol…

Reduces Telomere Damage… Reduces DNA Damage…

How To Minimize DNA Damage…

Nutrition Can Have a Significant Impact on Telomere Length…

• A Nutrient-Rich Diet…

• Adequate Sleep…

• Diet suggestions…

• Flax

• Spinach & Tomato

• Berries/Blueberries
