ANTI-AGING RELIEF SOLUTIONS
The three main causes of aging and seemingly
age-related diseases are:
Here, you will learn more about those three things and
what you can do to minimize the damage.
1. Free Radical Damage
Free radicals are naturally present in the body and in the environment.
Environmental factors also contribute to increased production and/or activity of the radical molecules. The number
and activity of free radicals in the skin, for example, increases during exposure to UV radiation in the form of
The human body has solutions that minimize free radical damage in the form of
antioxidants. Antioxidants present in the skin, including superoxide dismutase, neutralize free radicals before
they can damage cellular DNA. Damage to the DNA of a skin cell can result in the formation of a wrinkle or a
The number of antioxidants present in the skin decreases with age. That is the
main cause of wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. The same thing occurs elsewhere in the body. You just
can’t see it.
You can boost the number of antioxidants within your body by eating more fruits,
vegetables and berries, but as you age, dietary supplements are practical necessities. Nutrient absorption
decreases with age and the body’s production of certain potent antioxidants also decreases. For example, the amount
of the potent antioxidant coenzyme Q10 in the heart muscle starts to decrease as early as the age of 20.
Not only can coenzyme Q10 prevent free radical damage, it also has the ability to
reverse damage that has already occurred. Creams containing the nutrient can even reverse symptoms of sun damage to
Coenzyme Q10 is not the only important antioxidant. The best multi-nutritional
supplements contain a wide variety of potent antioxidants, as well as the more common vitamins C and E.
2. Chronic Inflammation
Inflammation is a natural function of the body’s immune system. What we call
chronic inflammation occurs as a result of a combination of factors. Lack of anti-inflammatory omega-3s in the diet
is one of the major factors. Omega-3 fats have anti-inflammatory activity, whereas most fats are
Fish oil is the best studied source of omega-3 fatty acids. Some brands of fish
oil have measurable anti-inflammatory activity. Others do not. So it is important to choose a good
In addition to fish oil, there are other potent anti-inflammatory agents that can
be found in some of the better multi-nutritional supplements. For example, Curcumin, which comes from the spice
plant turmeric, is one of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories.
AGEs form in your body as a part of a chain reaction that begins when you eat
simple carbohydrates. Sugary soft drinks are the leading sources of simple carbohydrates in the American diet.
Because simple carbs are digested too quickly, they cause spikes in blood sugar levels.
Sugars in the bloodstream can become bound to proteins and form molecules called
AGEs, which are classified as “grotesque”. The cells can no longer use the nutrients in the molecules for energy.
If the molecules get inside of the cells, they harden and actually kill healthy cells.
The best way to limit the formation of AGEs in your body is to avoid simple
carbohydrates. A dietary supplement containing Carnosine can also help. Carnosine is a dipeptide with the ability
to coat proteins and prevent them from becoming “stuck” to sugars.
The best multi-nutritional supplements contain ingredients that address all of the
issues mentioned here. Along with fish oil, those anti-aging supplements are your best solution for healthy
– Ubiquinol is the most potent and most absorbable
form of the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 – benefits of supplementation include better heart health,
increased energy levels, stronger muscles and fewer wrinkles

What is this special ingredient?
It’s called CoQ10. BUT not the ordinary CoQ10 that you are no doubt familiar with!
It is a special type of CoQ10 called Ubiqui(nol) from Kaneka in Japan who were the original developers of
The type of CoQ10 found in most fish oil supplements
which has been around for years is called Ubiqui(none) - oxidized
CoQ10. But, if you are over 40 years of age you need to take very large doses to get the potential benefits
and even then the results cannot be guaranteed. This is because your body has to convert the Ubiquinone to
Ubiquinol for it to ‘work its magic’ and if you are over 40 the ‘conversion’ is not very effective…as a
result you do not get the full benefits of CoQ10.
But, by using the ‘reduced’ form of CoQ10 (Ubiquinol) your blood levels of CoQ10
may stay higher for longer. And that’s what really counts. You want your ejection fraction to increase – that’s the
percentage of blood that’s pumped with each heartbeat. Imagine your heart pumping with two to three times the power
you had before!Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil OUR RECOMMENDED SPECIALTY SUPPLEMENT
