Our supplements can absolutely help you look younger, there is no questioning that. But to look and feel younger it takes work on your behalf. A healthy diet combined with our Anti-Aging 1.0 formula can help rejuvenate your body at the cellular level. Our proprietary blend contains herbal extracts and potent anti-aging ingredients such as:
Astaxanthin (ASX): A carotenoid found in seafood (especially crab and shrimp), yeast, and micro-algae. Studies have shown that astaxanthin promotes wrinkle formation reduction, improvements in skin elasticity, and suppression of ultraviolet B (UVB)-induced inflammation. Additionally, ASX has also been shown to process greater antioxidant capacity than canthaxanthin and β-carotene.
Carnosine: A dipeptide or protein-building block made up of the amino acids histidine and beta-alanine. It is a powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage to cell membranes. Studies have shown that carnosine suppresses the formation of tumors, glioblastoma cells, and ovarian carcinoma cells. In studies using mouse/rat models, it was shown to have protective effects against cognitive decline and myocardial ischemia (inadequate blood flow to the heart). Additionally, carnosine was shown to delay the development of lens opacification, the main cause of cataracts.
Nicotinamide Riboside: A form of Vitamin B3 and a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Studies have shown that it elevates NAD+ levels in healthy middle-aged adults and seniors. NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a compound that’s involved in cell energy production and found in every cell of our bodies. Low NAD levels lead to metabolic dysfunction and make us susceptible to a whole range of age-related diseases. Our proprietary blend contains the right amounts of nicotinamide riboside to help you fight premature aging and the effects of the aging process.
Turmeric: Contains curcumin, which has been shown to decrease oxidative stress and cellular-level inflammation.
Matcha Green Tea: Studies suggest that polyphenolic compounds in green tea contain anti-aging and anti-diabetic properties.
Trimethylglycine (TMG): An amino-acid derivative obtained from plants. TMG possesses inflammatory properties and has been shown to protect against premature programmed cell death.
MCT Powder: MCT refers to medium-chain triglycerides. Studies have shown that the Medium-Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil diet, a variant of the classic ketogenic diet, can reduce oxidative stress to cells and may have neuroprotective benefits.
