Antioxidants protect cells from DNA damage,but inevitably some DNA damage does occur.ac-11® is a patented extract from rainforestsourced Uncaria tomentosa that helps your body’s natural ability to repair its own DNA, inhibit pro-inflammatory agents and support the immune system. Studies have shown these are three powerful anti-ging functions critical to health as we age. Tested for safety and efficacy, ac-11® is supported by 17+ years of research, 40+ scientific studies, and 10 patents.
AC-11® Health Benefits
In pilot studies ac-11(r) has been shown to significantly improve telomere length and health. Further studies are underwayto further understand this unique benefit.
- Supports natural DNA repair within cells
- Promotes energy production
- Enhances immune function
- Supports joint health
- Promotes healthy sleep cycles and neuro protection
- Supports collagen production and enhances repair of sun damaged skin
ac-11® has proven cellular benefits. Years of ac-11® research and clinical use have proven its DNA repair, anti-inflammatory, apoptosis inducement, and immune effects at the cellular level. 10 US patents have been awarded based upon these health benefits." The immune, DNA repair, anti-inflammatory and apoptosis benefits listed.
The medical and scientific community over the past decade have linked the acceleration of DNA damage with chronic disease including cancer, adult onset diabetes, heart disease and other chronic maladies associated with poor health and aging. This community has also linked enhanced DNA repair capacity with self-healing and in some cases, reversal of these life threatening conditions. Although not a drug and subject to additional testing in humans, ac-11® has shown, in a variety of in-vitro, animal and human studies, the ability to help the body repair its own DNA.
ac-11® helps to normalize the expression of NF-kB in cells, thereby regulating cellular response to inflammation. NF-kB is a nuclear transcription factor that influences numerous gene-encoding proteins important in apoptosis (programmed cell death - a positive function), inflammation and cellular growth. A normal expression of NF-kB minimizes the hazards of excessive oxidative stress. An over-expression of NF-kB triggers increased inflammation. In one of the human studies, ac-11® demonstrated a positive effect on lymphocytes, increasing their lifespan and, by implication, enhancing the body’s immune system.
