Maintaining a healthy body and mind is the best insurance against age-related declines in health. The best way to look youthful on the outside is to put the right things into our body. Eating 4 to 5 small meals each day and eating only when hungry supports a healthy body composition and energy levels. Filtered water, raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, soy, and wild ocean fish are important components of a healthy diet. Limiting the consumption of animal products, processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, salt, bleached flour products, sugar, and tobacco reduce your risk factors for disease. Supplements can play a helpful role in supporting healthy aging and by fighting free radicals and balancing hormone levels.

Essential Products for Healthy Aging
Grape seed extract exhibits a very high content of oligomeric proanthocyanides (OPC). OPCs have potent antioxidant capability and are highly effective in cross-linking and strengthening connective tissues. Numerous studies support the use of OPCs as useful adjuncts to protocols dealing with aging/longevity, circulation, visual acuity, skin wrinkling, bruising, mental function, as well as inflammation, immune resistance, accelerated healing, allergies, fatigue reduction, and increased energy. Our European grape seed extract is from Leucoselect™, the most researched Grape seed extract in the market today.

Green tea extract is rich in free radical fighting antioxidants. Green tea contains a substance called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has powerful anticancer properties, and has been shown to significantly protect DNA from free radical damage. Recent studies have shown potential in offsetting symptoms of Alzheimer disease. Our Green Tea is a European extract, standardized to contain 50% catachins and our Green Tea liquid has the same antioxidant level as 10 cups of green tea per serving.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a powerful antioxidant and precursor to glutathione, another important antioxidant that supports the liver’s detoxification pathways. Because supplemental glutathione is not very absorbable, studies show that a better way to boost glutathione levels is by taking supplemental NAC. Research suggests that NAC might protect against chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, cancers, immune disorders, and have a favorable affect on age-related memory loss.

DHEA is an important steroid hormone that plays a major role in the immune system, is a building block for sex and other hormones, and determines general levels of well-being and mood. As we age this vital hormone steadily declines. Low levels of circulating DHEA has been linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, AIDS, and Alzheimer's disease. Often 25 mg of DHEA is recommended for women and up to 50 mg daily for men, but it is strongly suggested that you consult with a health professional. Our tablets are scored to be broken in half for smaller dosages.
