Aaaaah, youth! If only we could take our acquired experience and the approach to life we’ve adopted over the years and combine them with the resilient and fit bodies we enjoyed when we were 20! Wouldn’t life be significantly more enjoyable? With a little know-how and a few key dietary supplements you can at least achieve a more youthful appearance and energy level than you currently are experiencing.


Declining Youth Hormones

One of the main factors in our deteriorating physical nature is the fact that levels of critical hormones and other vital chemicals in our bodies decline with each passing year.

  • CoQ10CoQ10 is an enzyme catalyst that is essential to creating energy within the cell. And just like any electrical appliance, without a source of energy, we don’t function. Unfortunately, as we age our ability to assimilate CoQ10 from foods like fish and eggs slows way down. We begin to feel the affects but can’t always identify the cause.

  • MelatoninMelatonin governs our internal clock, telling us when to sleep and when to rise. Sleep is absolutely essential to anti-aging because this sustained period of rest is the time when our body manufacturers many of the very chemicals we need to stay healthy like growth hormones and immune factors. If you’re not getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep, but find that you spend too many nighttime hours tossing, turning and staring at the clock, you may want to try melatonin.

  • DHEADHEA is the precursor or parent hormone of anti-aging hormones like estrogen, testosterone and growth hormone. It helps to maintain muscle mass, skin tone, and even bone health. However, for many and varied reasons, the body makes significantly less DHEA the older we get. This hormone first gained notoriety as a supplement because it significantly promotes energy and sexual libido.


Powerful Anti-Aging Triad

Medical experts on anti-aging are learning how certain nutrients help to appreciably assist the body in maintaining unimpaired protein tissue, and this action has an enormous impact on health and wellness. When you think of protein in the body, usually the first thing that comes to mind is muscle. Remember, though, that muscle tissue is so much more than impressively bulging biceps or an attractively rounded gluteus maximus. The heart is a major muscle, as are many other organs in the body. The framework of the skin is made up of collagen, another protein structure, as is the cartilage in all the joints. The following three nutrients do an impressive job at keeping all protein structures in the best shape possible.

  1. Alpha Lipoic Acid—Plays a central role in preserving protein and collagen and in providing continuous energy to the cell. It snuffs out free radicals in both the fat and water portions of a cell, and it is the only antioxidant that can boost cellular levels of the tripeptide glutathione, which is tremendously important to overall health and longevity.

  2. Benfotiamine—Fat-soluble form of vitamin B-1. It exerts more powerful effects in smaller doses than its water-soluble cousin thiamin.

  3. Carnosine—Dipeptide of the amino acids histidine and beta-alanine. Binds with excess levels of copper in the body to prevent cellular oxidation.

For inspiring and thorough coverage of the anti-aging effects of all three supplements, we enthusiastically invite you to read “The Perricone Promise,” available online or at your local bookstore.


The King and Queen of Antioxidants

An anti-aging discussion is incomplete without mentioning two chief antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

  • Vitamin C—Helps to keep us young in two outstanding ways. First, it is necessary for making collagen and elastin, which keeps skin firm, joints flexible, and blood vessels strong. Second, it is a key nutrient for maintaining a healthy immune system. The immune system is a complex and ever-vigilant infrastructure designed to safeguard us from the onslaught of free radicals that we’re exposed to every day of our lives. It’s on a perpetual search-and-destroy mission, seeking out proteins called antigens that don’t belong in our bodies. If and when that task is accomplished, the immune system sets out to build and strengthen the body. Without an immune system, the game of life would be over before it got started. As a versatile and powerful antioxidant, vitamin C plays a huge role in keeping immune warriors in tip-top shape. 

  • Vitamin E—We often think of aging in terms of how we look and feel physically, yet aging can affect our mental health, too, impairing ability to reason and remember. Owing to its very nature as a fat-soluble antioxidant, Vitamin E is one of the best nutritional allies to promote brain health and cognitive function, since the brain is largely comprised of fatty tissue, as are the protective membranes of all cells in our body. Vitamin E has many other noteworthy anti-aging applications, too, including health of the cardiovascular system, the liver and the skin. Vitamin E intake should definitely be part of your diet, whether from food or supplements.
