Every ageless beauty needs to know about the importance of the tumor suppressor gene P53. Keeping this gene turned on will not only slow aging, it will save your life.
P53 is a cancer-fighting gene inside our cells that coordinates the action of more than 60 genes in order to help prevent a damaged cell from developing into a malignant tumor.
P53 does this by detecting DNA damage or other deadly stress in the cell. P53 then commands the cell to stop growing so the damage can be repaired or enacts the cell’s suicide plan.
If P53 gets turned off, the body not only loses a crucial protection against cancer, cancer treatments will not work.
It is estimated that the P53 gene is turned off in 90% of all cancers.
- How does P53 get turned off?
Preservatives and toxins in food
Toxic preservatives in make up and personal care products such as toothpaste, deodorants, hair care, soaps and body lotions.
- Stress may also play a factor
One toxin I am hearing more and more about is Aflatoxin which is a byproduct of the mold Aspergillus found in grains. There is evidence aflatoxin turns off the P53 gene. http://www.dnalc.org/view/994-Causes-Mold-Aflatoxin-action.html
What can you do to turn P53 back on or prevent P53 from turning off?
The first place to start is diet.
Studies show that the Standard American Diet can cause the P53 gene to turn off. When you take a good look at the SAD diet, not only is it devoid of real nutrition, it is highly toxic. The packaging alone can be very toxic, then throw in toxic preservatives and pesticides, no wonder cancer rates are on the rise.
To help prevent P53 from turning off, eat as close to nature as possible. Include lots of fresh organic vegetables, fruits, nuts and organic eggs, grass fed meats and wild fish. Avoid canned, boxed and packaged food as much as possible.
It is also known that organic carrot juice can turn the P53 gene back on. There are many testimonies of people who got well from cancer simply by changing their diet and drinking 5lbs of juiced organic carrots per day. Carrot juice also has an alkalizing effect on the body. Cancer cannot live in an alkaline system.
Cruciferous Vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts and cauliflower have also been shown to help turn the P53 gene back on. I personally try to eat 1 cup of a cruciferous vegetable every single day. I love adding broccoli sprouts to my salads. Broccoli sprouts have 20-50 times the amount of sulforaphane than the mature broccoli vegetable.
Another tip, take a head of green cabbage and slice in to big round medallions. Place on a cookie sheet, rub the cabbage with a clove of garlic, add salt and pepper, and a spoonful of coconut oil on top of each medallion. Bake at 350 for 5 – 8 minutes. This is a family favorite at my house.
Avoid tap water at all cost, which can contain chlorine and fluoride along with many other toxins. Consume ½ your body weight in ounces of pure spring or alkaline water daily. This will also help flush toxins out of your body.
Personal Care Products
Women absorb over 5 lbs a year of toxic ingredients just from the products they put on their skin. You must be vigilant and read labels. Making a conscious decision to buy toxic free skin care, makeup, hair care, body lotions, deodorants and soaps will greatly reduce toxic exposure. Check out The Ageless Beauty Store, where every product is always 100% pure.
I recently learned about a powerful all natural supplement that can assist in turning the P53 Gene back on and help the body absorb vitamin D3, which is crucial for a strong immune system.
Dr. Sherrill Sellman, a well known Naturopathic Doctor who specializes in women’s hormones recommended this product to me. (Be sure to check out Sherrill’s website WhatWomenMustKnow.com )
EnduraCell contains a standardised concentration of Sulforaphane, the bioactive plant chemical for which broccoli sprout is renowned as one of the most highly-regarded health-promoting vegetables.
Sulforaphane is a biomolecule which is capable of influencing disease-causing processes very early and via many different mechanisms. Its actions are capable of favourably influencing processes like oxidative stress, inflammation, detoxification, DNA protection and immunity. These aberrations in the cell’s normal chemistry are the forerunners to disease and are associated with premature ageing.
EnduraCell is great for anyone who wants to slow aging, prevent cancer, or get well from cancer.
The body is an amazing machine, we just have to make sure we take care of it so that everything continues to operate at full function. When it comes to ageless health and beauty knowledge is power.
I hope you now feel a bit more powerful knowing that you can avoid toxins and eat right to keep P53 on. When it comes to ageless beauty your health is everything.
