AGING CHANGES: CELLULAR

In the Introduction to Aging, we outlined how cells function and replicate. How well these cells function and how well they replicate does change with age.

The changes are not so much directly related to “age” but more to how well the cell has been nourished, which in turn dictates how well the normal cell functions are performed.

 

Cell Functional Changes with Age

One of the most important of these cell functions is to rid the cell of toxic waste, natural by-products of cell processes. If the cell does not do this efficiently, or if the cell is so overloaded with additional toxins that we introduce to it through poorly chosen foods and alcohol, excessive exercise and stress, then the level of toxins rise to unhealthy levels.

You can imagine how well you would perform your normal daily tasks if you were suffering from chemical poisoning, or even from a commonly experienced toxic overload – a hang over.

At the cell level, the decrease in functionality is similar, and as such nutrients are not processed correctly, electrical signals are not transmitted efficiently and the whole system starts a chain reaction breakdown or performance.

 

Cell Reproduction Changes with Age

A cell's ability to reproduce typically declines with normal cellular aging, yet many age-related health problems involve increases in proliferation. For example, the prostate gland tends to increase its cells with age. One hypothesis is that aging may cause inappropriate cellular responses to signals to proliferate and to signals that tell cells to stop proliferating.

At more significant levels, cells that are overloaded with toxins are damaged at the core DNA. This damage causes mutation of the cell during reproduction. Such mutation is compounded each time the cell reproduces, until it produces cancers and other degenerative diseases.

 

Managing Cell Aging

Fortunately, there are a number of things we can do to manage cell aging:
