Anti-aging supplements

Yeah I know, they don't do anything is the common mantra.
They need to add vitamin D and there are a few other things too, it's a very good start.
Almost each single individual is in search of the proverbial fountain of looking young. Ant-wrinkle treatments and anti-aging supplements promise to reverse aging and make you look very young. Today many companies manufacture supplements that can go a long way in making sure you look ten times younger.

 The following are some of the best anti-aging supplements: Coenzyme Q10 This is an important component of healthy mitochondrial function. It is integrated into cell’s mitochondria through the entire body where it regulates and facilitates the oxidation of sugars and fats into energy. Aging individuals have been discovered to have over 50% less CoQ10 on average compared to younger individuals. These results make CoQ10 one of the most essential nutrients for individuals over 30 years of age to supplement with. Almost 95% of cellular energy is generated in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the main source of energy needed by the body and are called “energy powerhouses” and many maladies have been called as “mitochondrial disorders.”

 Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate The amino acid acetyl-L-Carnitine increases the amount of energy produced by mitochondria through its ability to facilitate oxidation in the cell and fatty acid transport. Since 1995, members from life extension have been supplementing with acetyl-L- carnitine and deriving the many advantages of acetyl-L-Carnitine can now be well augmented. The amino acid is a patented form of carnitine that fuels the growth of neurites in the brain.

 Aspirin The most known source of death and disability in the United States is an abnormal clot that grows inside an artery to cause a stroke (blocked blood vessel in the brain) or a heart attack (blocked blood vessel in the heart). Aspirin an instant and long lasting effect on blood platelets, reducing the chance of them clumping together and making blood flow smoothly.

 Carnosine It is a multi-functional dipeptide found in both human body and food. It is made up of a chemical combination of the amino acid L-histidine and beta-alanine. Long lived cells such as muscle cells and never cells contain high concentration of Carnosine. Muscle levels of Carnosine depend with the maximum life span of animals.
As individuals get older the Carnosine levels decrease. The good thing is, there are Carnosine supplements that you can take. From age 10 to age 70 the muscle levels decrease by 63%, which might explain for the normal age-related decline in muscle function and mass. Since Carnosine serves as a muscle buffer, it can protect muscle cell membranes from oxidation under the acidic condition of muscular exertion. Carnosine also activate the heart muscles to contract more effectively through improvement of calcium response in heart myocytes. The process of aging can lead to irreversible damage to the body’s proteins.

 Fish oil The Omega-3 oils are made of billions of cell membranes in our body and considering they cannot be produced by the body, their health advantages can only be seen by eating a diet rich in fish or with omega-three supplement. Studies have proven than diets loaded in Omega-3 fats are associated with exceptional brain, heart and circulatory health. The worst part is, the Typical American diet provides little of the Omega 3’s essentials which makes it a good anti-aging supplement to use.

 Omega 3’s has also been shown to have the following benefits:
  • Reduce inflammation in all organ system.
  • Hasten the loss of body fat.
  • Enhance attention span.
  • Reduce appetite.
  • Boost radiance to skin.
  • Reduces insulin levels.
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels.
  • Maintain and create healthy serotonin levels.
  • Boost health of immune system.
  • Reduces cardiovascular risk.
  • Decreases severity and symptoms of chronic skin conditions.
Grape seed extract This is another great anti-aging supplement. It supports and strengthens living tissues and facilitates blood circulation. It is a great antioxidant, 20 to 50 times more effective compared to vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. As you get older, your body makes less antioxidant to deal with the aging process.

 Alpha Lipoic Acid ALA has the unique capability to exist in either oil-based or water environments, which activate ALA to deliver its effective antioxidant advantages virtually anywhere in the body. ALA is commonly known as “Universal antioxidant” because it has the capacity to reside anywhere in the body. This is one of the best anti-aging supplements.

 Green Tea extract What makes green tea extract such a significant nutrient are the big volumes of published scientific findings that legitimize its multiple biological benefits. The most important findings involve studies proving that green tea extract helps maintain membrane structural integrity and cellular DNA. Years of studies have shown that green tea prevent the growth of undesirable cell colonies. Green tea has high levels of antioxidant called flavonols and polyphenols. A huge number of chatechins are found in green tea and account for the bulk of research reports. One cup of green tea contains 10-40 mg of polyphenols and has antioxidant impacts that are greater than a serving of spinach, strawberries or carrots. Theoretically, the high level of antioxidant activity of green tea makes it advantageous for protecting the body from oxidative damage because of free radicals.

 Resveratrol This substance has been the subject of some of the best anti-aging research. Based on scientific literature research, Resveratrol is the most efficient compound for promoting longevity and maintaining optimal health. Resveratrol is a polyphenolic, a phytoalexin compound is produced by Vitis Vinifera as a reaction to attack by molds. Research funded by the life Extension Foundation illustrated that an integration of low-dose Resveratrol plus grape seed extract mimicked a lot of favorable gene expression changes observed in calorie restricted animals. However, other studies indicated that higher doses might be required to get all of Resveratrol’s positive advantages including enhanced mitochondrial function, reduced expression of inflammatory factors, protection against the effect of a high-fat diet and promoting healthy insulin sensitivity.

 L-Alpha-glycerylphosphorycholine (GPC) This is a byproduct of phosphatidylcholine and helps to increase acetylcholine. L-Alpha-glycerylphosphorycholine facilitates the synthesis of several brain phospholipids, which boost the availability of acetylcholine in several brain tissues. The GPC form of choline has been shown in research to help secure against cognitive decline normally observed in aging.

 Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ) Until recently, the only alternative for aging individuals to boost replenishment of the reducing numbers of mitochondria in their bodies were long-term exhaustive physical activity or calorie restriction. This was very challenging or impractical for most aging individuals. Now there is a viable option. PQQ enables genes that boost the formation of new mitochondria.

 Whey Protein Most individuals’ think of whey protein as a supplement used only by athletes who want to increase their muscle mass. However, evolving studies suggest the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) isoleucine, valine and leucine and other fractions contained in whey can mimic the longevity advantages of calorie restriction. Whey proteins can also have a positive effect on immunity and muscle construction because of its BCAA profile and naturally occurring immunoglobins and lactoferrin.

 Calorie restriction Having a diet restricted in calories but rich in nutrients, extends the lifespan of experimental animals since the 1930s. Over 2000 studies have shown the effectiveness of calorie restriction in a wide range of species. Calorie restriction has a very great anti-aging effect and as such making you feel younger.
