How stressed plants communicate to our genes (to our benefit) | David Sinclair

Plants produce a variety of chemicals in action to exterior stress factors, such as dry spell or fungal assault. When humans ingest these compounds, our cells “check out” their chemical signals and also turn on cellular systems that safeguard us not only from the plant compound yet also the ecological stress factors to which we are subjected every day, such as air contamination or overexposure to UV radiation. This capacity of plant-based substances to activate human cellular stress and anxiety action paths that give protective effects results from a biological phenomenon called xenohormesis. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair describes just how plant-based compounds activate cellular protective systems in human beings.
