Most endeavors have a beginning, a middle, and an end. This is true of your new journey into the subject of anti-aging with one notable exception: Once you start on this pathway, I want you to begin the journey and then I want you to practice and learn for the rest of your life. There is no end to this particular quest. After you have gained momentum around the lifestyle and learned to appreciate all the gifts garnered from this lifestyle, it is easy to stay on this anti-aging pathway. You will have created a personal, positive lifestyle built around good, healthy habits.
Learning about anti-aging supplements is an easy and effortless way to start the process. This does not mean that the fountain of youth is found in a bottle, but supplementation is a good way to start.
I find once people get on the anti-aging supplements, they feel a bit better and a part of the anti-aging community, and then, they are generally more prepared to take the next step.
The following are the anti-aging supplements that have been recommended (and developed) by leading researchers in the field. I have provided additional video sites with the researchers discussing these various supplements so you can get to know the products better. Knowing the hype around the product and why it works and how it works is probably even more powerful than the product.
Product #1: Isagenesis (formerly known as Product B) from Isagenix
The Importance of Telomeres
To grasp the power of a telomere supplement, it’s important to understand telomeres. Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of our cells’ chromosomes. They protect our DNA from damage just like the aglets on shoelaces protect the laces from unraveling. As we age, our cells divide (replicate) and our telomeres shorten during every one of these divisions (replications). Oxidative stress, toxins, poor nutrition, lack of exercise, daily stress, and a host of other issues cause the process of telomere-shortening to speed up–which unfortunately means we age faster. And the faster we age, the sooner we face age-related health conditions and diseases.
This product aims to help telomeres do what they do best—protect your DNA and your cells and help you age more efficiently. When your telomeres and Isagenesis come together–it’s a beautiful thing! And the benefits of that union mean you can enjoy a healthier, more youthful life.
Product B Explained
Product #2: Nicotinamide Riboside from Elysium and a host of companies
Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is a recently discovered form of vitamin B3 that can increase levels of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) levels in humans. NAD+ is a key coenzyme that the mitochondria in every cell of our bodies depend on to fuel all basic functions. NR is shown to do the following:
- reverse indications of aging in muscles
- improve cardiovascular health
- improve energy
- decrease muscle soreness
- improve memory
- induces better sleep
- improves hearing and vision
A product that we highly recommend is Basis from a company called Elysium. This company was started by Dr. Lenny Guarente from MIT. [*There are seven Nobel prize winners on the Scientific Advisory Board for this small start up company].
Elysium Health Breakthrough
Another product we recommend (but one that does require a prescription from a medical doctor) is Synapsin. If you live in the US or Canada, I recommend you ask your doctor to write a prescription for this product as it is a premium way to take NR. Learn more.
Product #3: Nitric Oxide by a host of companies
Nitric Oxide (NO) is a gas that’s naturally produced in the body. NO is used to communicate between cells–and that is what it will do for you–improve your body’s intracellular communication. It also plays a key role in controlling the circulation of blood and regulating activities of the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach, and other organs. But from a muscle-building perspective, NO affects the release of hormones and adrenaline. It’s also said to speed growth and recovery time as well as increase blood flow, thus delivering more nutrients to muscles, helping them repair and/or grow.
Product #4: Multivitamin from Life Extension and host of other companies
This is the most complete anti aging supplement formula I could find. It was created by the anti aging researchers and Life Extension, an American non-profit organization dedicated to anti-aging research.
Product #5: Magnesium
Magnesium is an important nutrient that is deficient in our soils now. Magnesium is best absorbed through the skin. The benefit is it will relax your muscles and make you feel great.
Life Extension Mix Powder
Some may need to supplement with more magnesium. If you are not sleeping well, cramping, or have aches and pains. You may want to increase your magnesium supplementation by taking magnesium glycenate in the evening.
