Death By BreathingBy: DAVE WOYNAROWSKI, M.D.
The World's Top Anti-Aging Specialist
Here's another great question.
Dear Dr. Dave,
I'm quite confused over one aspect of Instant Endurance. One of the components is supposed to help us take in more oxygen which is good for the brain, blood, organs, etc... On the other hand, we have things like anti-oxidants(?) which are supposed to retard aging. Is there a contradiction here?
Thank you very much.

Every now and then someone writes in an absolutely great question that I never thought of. Usually I say to myself," I wish I had thought of that!"
In the case of Tan P.K. from Singapore I found myself saying just that.
This gentleman's question cuts right to the heart of the anti-aging matter and I think will instruct all of us in some fundamentals that I have not touched upon before.
First let's take a little hypothetical trip back about 12 billion years. Again I say hypothetical because this is an evolutionary point of view and I am not in a position to state this as fact, so please do not take any religious offense to this!
The story goes like this:
Two very different cells came into contact with each other billions of years ago.
One cell had a very limited capacity to use oxygen which at the time was present on the earth's atmosphere in somewhat greater amounts than it is now.
The other cell was primarily a non oxygen user. But it was bigger badder and hungrier than the one that used oxygen.
So the big bad hungry non oxygen using cell ate the little high energy oxygen using one.
Funny thing is that the big cell couldn't digest the little one.
As a matter of fact the little cell rather liked being inside the "stomach " of the big cell because there was all that unused oxygen lying around.
At some point it became apparent that these 2 cells, one now living inside the other, were greater than the sum of their parts.
Each conferred a survival advantage to the other, so they learned to coexist and thrive as a new unified organism that could use oxygen very well.
It is thought that the little cell that got eaten and liked it was the forerunner of the modern day mitochondrion ( mitochondria pleural).
In all of our cells there are mitochondria. They are the veritable powerhouses of the cell. Most if not all oxygen metabolism takes place there.
Mitochondria are truly the energy generating furnaces of our body. They take oxygen food and water and convert it into our energy needs.
As such they are exposed to lots of oxygen and this burning of oxygen creates what are now known as "oxygen free radicals" or simply free radicals.
Many of you already know that free radicals are damaging. They have a lot of energy and when they glom onto something and give up their energy to it bad things can happen.
Such as Inflammation heart disease joint destruction and cancer.
The mitochondria are well equipped to handle this at least when they are young because of many buffers. Perhaps the most important of which is Co Enzyme Q 10 one of the main ingredients in Regenerizer.
The bioactive plant compounds in Instant Endurance are also loaded with anti-oxidants, as is fish oil which actually acts as a free radical sponge to soak them up.
