You age because declining communication between your mitochondria and the nucleus of your cells. The nucleus of your cell “stops talking” to your mitochondria, also known as the “power plant” that produces the vital energy needed to run your body. Valuable health-building information is also being exchanged by your cells every second. So when this communication stops, sickness and disease takes hold—and you quickly age.
By increasing the level of an enzyme already in your body called sirutin 1—also called a longevity gene--the communication between your mitochondria and the nucleus of your cell starts up again the way nature intended when you were much younger. Your cells stay healthy as long as this process continues. The impact on your entire body is remarkable.
