Anti-aging Effects of Lactoferrin

Reactive Oxygen Species Promotes Aging

Aging is the accumulation of changes in organisms, such as the appearance of wrinkles and mottled skin. Oxygen and radical oxygen species are the key risk factors for aging. Molecular dioxygen (O2) is essential for cellular respiration in all aerobic organisms. In the mitochondria, oxygen is used to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during oxidative phosphorylation. In the absence of oxygen supply, the individual suffers brain death within 5 minutes, and the heart stops beating within 10 to 20 minutes. Although oxygen is essential for energy production, its by-product is harmful to cells. During the process of mitochondrial energy production, a very low but significant amount of the hydroxyl radical (OH.) is produced. The hydroxyl radical is highly reactive, and it attacks any compound immediately after it is produced.
