myrcianthes) - all from genus Eugenia - and bacupari-mirim (Garcinia brasiliensis) are examples of functional foods, which besides vitamins and nutritional values, have bioactive properties, such as the capacity to combat free radicals - unstable, highly reactive atoms that bind to other atoms in the organism and cause damage, such as cellular aging
According to a study from Japan, alcohol can damage telomeres, the protective ends of our DNA; shortened telomeres are linked to cellular aging
, and could also raise your risk for certain diseases.

Since learning about telomeres in a college biology class, I have been fascinated by their potential role in influencing the pace of cellular aging
Telomeres are the protective tips found at the end of each DNA strand and are indicative of cellular aging
This damage leads to increasing ROS, decreasing antioxidative capacities, and finally cellular aging
Finally, they compared stem cells isolated from six young and six old individuals and found a marked downregulation of WRN protein and a decrease in the level of heterochromatin derived from old individuals, further suggesting that accumulated alterations in the structure of heterochromatin may be a major underlying cause of cellular aging
