Science has documented the ability of certain nutrients to bolster the body’s healthy DNA defenses against environmental toxins. DNA Protection Formula provides nutrients such as xanthohumol, watercress extract, chlorophyllin and zinc for powerful DNA health support in a single, convenient formula.
More Facts About DNA Protection Formula
Endogenous and environmental factors can affect your DNA. Fortunately, there are ways to support your healthy defenses against these environmental toxins through nutritional supplementation. We’ve reformulated our original DNA Protection Formula to include XanthoVital� (xanthohumol).
Xanthohumol is a flavonoid derived from the hops plant commonly used in brewing beer. In clinical and preclinical studies, xanthohumol has been shown to help protect DNA from damage, a major part of maintaining healthy cellular function and cell division.1-3
Clinical and preclinical studies show that chlorophyllin binds to certain dietary and environmental toxins, inhibiting their potential stress on vulnerable DNA.4-8 Chlorophyllin also supports your body’s natural antioxidant defense against toxins and promotes healthy expression of the protective p53 gene, which partially encourages cell reproduction.8-10
The essential mineral zinc supports a wide range of biochemical and immunological functions, including maintenance of DNA and helping support cellular antioxidant defenses.11 A study in women found that zinc supplementation helped protect from DNA strand breaks, thus stabilizing genetic expression.12 Another study in men found a modest increase in dietary zinc from 6 mg per day to 10 mg per day led to� optimal support for DNA strand breakage.13 In a placebo-controlled trial in older adults with low zinc status, those given zinc supplements helped support oxidative stress levels and decreased damage to telomeres�the tips of DNA strands that help support chromosomes�after 12 weeks.14
Our formula also includes watercress extract. Watercress is a leafy green vegetable that protects DNA from oxidative stress and has many potential health benefits.15,16 Two randomized crossover studies found adding this cruciferous vegetable to the diet helps support DNA.17,18
