There is an important reason why ‘genomic instability’ takes the number one position on the list of hallmarks. It is often called the big boss of the 4 primary hallmarks.

The blueprint (or code) printed in our genome is the information for all life and is the starting point of everything that makes us human.

Certain herbs called adaptogens are particularly helpful in restoring and maintaining positive homeostasis. This is due to their ability to help us adapt to change, in particular to the challenges associated with aging.
Aging is a part of life that we can't avoid. To age more gracefully, we need a better understanding of the mechanisms of aging and what they entail.
