Just as crucial as autophagy and the protection of telomeres is shielding our bodies from the breakdown of essential protective substances and our cells from free radicals. These are molecules with a strong tendency to steal an electron they lack from another molecule, resulting in the creation of a molecule that becomes a “free radical” itself. This process is called oxidation and can trigger a chain reaction, leading to oxidative stress that damages our cell membranes, mitochondria (energy-generating organelles in our cells), and DNA. The consequences can be severe. As more cells are affected, it leads to fatigue, typical age-related ailments, and diseases. Each of our trillions of body cells is attacked daily by at least 10,000 such free radicals. To better shield our cells from these assaults and strengthen the body’s detoxification from radicals, specific plant compounds, antioxidants, and endogenous substances have proven particularly helpful.
For Synergo juvenis, vital nutrients were specifically chosen, demonstrating protective or preventive effects against typical age-related complaints and diseases in studies.
Energy and performance
The mitochondria in our cells are responsible for generating energy (in the form of ATP = adenosine triphosphate) from simple sugars. This process is also known as cellular respiration. Aging is associated with progressive mitochondrial dysfunction, which involves impaired cellular respiration due to mutations and oxidative damage in the mitochondria2.1.
When mitochondrial function is compromised, it not only affects our energy metabolism and performance, but also disrupts other crucial metabolic processes and mechanisms. Recent research indicates that our mitochondria enable and influence communication and interaction with other organelles, the cell nucleus, and the external environment. Literature even suggests interactions between mitochondria and our internal clock, the gut microbiome, and the immune system2.2.
This emphasises the importance of protecting our mitochondria from mutations and oxidative damage for energy and health in aging. Resveratrol2.3, curcumin2.4, quercetin2.5, spermidine2.6, polysaccharides from astragalus2.7, hyaluronic acid2.8 and nicotinamide as a precursor to NAD+2.9 have shown supportive effects in maintaining mitochondrial function and integrity in scientific studies.
Similar to the rest of the body, our immune system ages. Older individuals generally produce fewer antibodies, and the defense cells undergo changes compared to younger years, making the immune system less effective. However, just like overall vitality in aging, the efficiency of the immune system can be supported through a healthy lifestyle, regardless of age. Various ingredients in Synergo juvenis may help strengthen the immune system by supporting lymphocyte formation, activating T-cells, increasing the production of white blood cells and antibodies, regulating cytokines, or reducing inflammation and oxidative stress: Astragalus root extract2.10 / 2.11, chaga mushroom extract2.12, turmeric root extract2.13 / 2.14, nicotinamide (niacin)2.15, quercetin2.16 and resveratrol2.17 / 2.18.
Joints and bones
Several ingredients in Synergo juvenis, such as turmeric root extract2.19 / 2.20 / 2.21, quercetin2.22 / 2.23 / 2.24, resveratrol2.25 / 2.26 / 2.27 / 2.28, spermidine2.29 / 2.30, hyaluronic acid2.31 / 2.32 and natural rosehip extract2.33 have exhibited protective effects on bones and joints in various studies. Consequently, they might assist in preventing inflammatory joint diseases like arthritis, rheumatism, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis.
A multitude of vital nutrients in Synergo juvenis have shown positive effects on cardiovascular health in several studies, protecting against oxidative stress and influencing other biochemical mechanisms: Astragalus root extract2.34 / 2.35, rosehip extract2.36, turmeric root extract2.37 / 2.38, Quercetin2.39 / 2.40, resveratrol2.41 / 2.42 / 2.43 / 2.44, spermidine2.45 / 2.46, niacin (nicotinamide)2.47.
With increasing age, vision often decreases and eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy or dry eyes become more common. Resveratrol2.48, hyaluronic acid2.49 and turmeric root extract2.50 in Synergo juvenis may support eye health through various mechanisms.
Cancer causes about 1 in every 6 deaths worldwide, more than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. The development of cancer is a complex process. The starting point is usually damage to the genetic material in the cell that can no longer be repaired, or errors in reading the genetic information. This leads to a loss of cell cycle control and disrupts the controlled elimination of damaged cells (also called apoptosis). Such out-of-control cells are called malignant cells. Several thousand malignant cells are formed in the human body every day and are immediately destroyed by the immune system. Cancer occurs when malignant cells develop faster than the immune system can eliminate them. The result is an uncontrolled proliferation and differentiation of malignant cells, i.e. a malignant tumor.
This greatly simplified explanation demonstrates that the telomeres, which protect our genetic material in the chromosomes, as well as the process of autophagy (= the controlled cell cleaning and breakdown of damaged cells) as well as the effectiveness of our immune system are important mechanisms in the body to help protect against cancer. Various plant and mushroom extracts present in Synergo juvenis have shown remarkable anti-cancer effects in studies by interfering with essential processes in the cell cycle and blocking critical signaling pathways that have gone out of control in malignant cancer cells: Astragalus root extract2.51 / 2.52, chaga mushroom extract2.53 / 2.54 / 2.55, turmeric root extract2.56 / 2.57, quercetin2.58 / 2.59, resveratrol2.60 / 2.61, spermidine2.62 and nicotinamide (niacin)2.63.
Synergo juvenis is not a medication and cannot guarantee protection against disease. As a natural dietary supplement, it complements a healthy lifestyle by providing essential nutrients for preventive purposes. Long-term intake is recommended for its full effectiveness.
