At what age should one start this therapy? European, American, and Japanese experience shows that it is possible to “get involved” in this process both in your 20's and your 80's, and this will certainly have a beneficial effect on your body.
An essential part of aging prevention is vital nutrients — natural substances in pharmaceutical dosages that help prevent illnesses, maintain health and promote body renewal.
Carnosine as a geroprotector1
The dipeptide carnosine (L-carnosine) is now recognized as one of the most effective solutions for rejuvenation in the global market of anti-aging technologies. It is a natural substance, akin to the body, composed of amino acids. The discovery of its properties has become a real sensation. It has a unique protective mechanism against cell aging, in other words — has a rejuvenating effect on aging cells. It is a powerful antioxidant and has a wide-ranging effect on the body: it improves brain activity, increases cardiac muscle endurance, reduces blood pressure, helps control blood sugar, delays lenticular opacity (in cases of age-related cataract), is effective for Alzheimer's disease, etc2.
Curcumin - food against cancer
Curcumin is the main active agent in the famous spice of turmeric. No other food constituent has such a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect as curcumin. It helps reduce inflammatory conditions, suppresses the growth of cancer cells and prevents metastasis. However, curcumin from spice is ingested only by 5-10%, therefore for vitamin-mineral complexes it is brought down to a micellar form for 100% absorption.
Coenzyme Q10 – a friend of your heart
At the moment, coenzyme Q10 is one of the most in-demand products of the world's leading gerontological centers. You can find it in absolutely every tissue and organ of the body. But first of all coenzyme Q10 is extremely important for your heart. It participates in building energy for cardiac function, improves heart muscle blood circulation, increases its contractility, reduces high blood pressure and normalizes the level of lipid in the blood. Moreover, it reduces statin side effects. Being a powerful antioxidant, coenzyme Q10 has a positive effect on skin health. It stimulates the synthesis of collagen, which makes the skin acquire elasticity, smooths small wrinkles and reduces deep ones. As a geroprotector, coenzyme Q10 works only in high dosages (no less than 100 mg) and in easily digestible forms (for example, when added to coconut oil, which increases its absorption efficiency).
Normal cholesterol with Omega-3
Polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 are irreplaceable: they are not produced in the body and so should come from outside, via food or special additives. Our body cannot function properly without Omega-3. Its sufficient intake provides normal cholesterol level, reduces the risk of blood clots, makes blood vessels stronger and more elastic. It assists to a better absorption of calcium, strengthens bone tissue, protecting from osteoporosis, makes joints more mobile, prevents arthritis and its varieties.
Alpha-lipoic acid as a support to metabolism
Alpha-lipoic acid plays a key role in the metabolism, helping glucose to transform into energy. As an antioxidant, it protects cells from being damaged by free radicals. It decreases the level of glucose for people with diabetes. It has a hepatoprotective effect and can be used in complex therapies for liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, etc. Alpha-lipoic acid is also successfully used in losing weight.
1 Geroprotector translates literally as “protecting against aging”.
