Turn Back the Clock With Healthy Aging Supplements

Turn Back the Clock With Healthy Aging Supplements


The earlier you begin taking care of your health, the better results you’ll see.* No matter what your age, you can benefit from healthy aging supplements that reduce inflammation, a culprit for rapid aging.* The nutrients below have been well studied in scientific trials for their ability to improve factors related to general wellness and aging.*

Turmeric's Anti-Aging Benefits

The top of the list for its healthy aging benefits is none other than turmeric.* This highly pigmented spice contains curcuminoids which researchers have found possess impressive anti-inflammatory qualities.* In a clinical trial surveying the effects of turmeric in 101 adults with knee pain, curcuminoids were shown to improve mobility in comparison to placebo.* One of the reasons turmeric is such a potent supplement is that it inhibits the COX-2 pathway which is involved in inflammation.* Turmeric’s benefits also extend to digestive health as it can soothe the gastrointestinal lining and encourage the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in the gut.* We feature turmeric in our Nature’s Lab Gold Turmeric + Joint Complex as well as several other formulas because it provides numerous anti-aging benefits.*

The Antioxidant Power of Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids

Vitamin C is one of the most studied antioxidants. We know that it has a profound effect on the immune system,* however, we are just learning more about how vitamin C interacts with bioflavonoids. Fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamin C often contain bioflavonoids. In studies comparing the antioxidant effects of vitamin C alone versus that of vitamin C in the presence of bioflavonoids, the ability of a vitamin C supplement to reduce free radicals was much higher when combined with bioflavonoids.* Taking vitamin C with bioflavonoids more closely mimics how we receive this essential antioxidant from food sources. If you want to further enhance the anti-aging benefits of vitamin C, try it with bioflavonoids like those found in our formula Super Vitamin C.* Super Vitamin C is a triple-threat immune support supplement with vitamin C, citrus bioflavonoids and the histamine-inhibiting bioflavonoid quercetin.* In addition to supporting immune system health, bioflavonoids and vitamin C may support strong yet flexible blood vessels.* Healthy arteries, veins and capillaries enhance circulation which is tantamount for heart health.*

Fish Oil for Heart and Brain Health

Fish Oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of “good fat” that we can only get from diet sources. Nearly two-thirds of our brain is made of fat. Because of our brain’s makeup, omega-3 fatty acids are vital for healthy membranes within nerve cells and other types of cells within the body.* DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are the specific types of fatty acids our body utilizes in large amounts for brain and heart function. We include 650 mg of EPA and 650 mg of DHA in a 2-capsule serving of our Triple Strength Omega-3 Fish Oil with EPA & DHA.

Healthy Skin and Joints with Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a popular skincare product because it attracts moisture that gives skin a plump and youthful look. It turns out that ingesting hyaluronic acid supplements can provide similar results.* One study showed participants that took a collagen supplement with hyaluronic acid showed less wrinkles and signs of aging after weeks of supplementation. Hyaluronic acid is present throughout the body where it is concentrated in the skin, joints and within the eyes. Hyaluronic acid is a component of synovial fluid that cushions joints from shocks and stress. We’ve combined hyaluronic acid with collagen and anti-inflammatory MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) in our Nature's Lab Hyaluronic Acid with BioCell Collagen & MSM for further joint-supporting benefits.*

Resveratrol Maintains Healthy Cells*

As we age, our cells and DNA within the cells starts to show signs of wear and tear. Resveratrol is a plant flavonoid that acts as an antioxidant. It supports healthy cells by reducing damaging free radical interactions.* Resveratrol promotes the removal of damaged cellular debris.* It also helps the ends of our DNA strands called telomeres to remain intact longer.* Shortened telomeres are one of the signs of advanced age and are often found in individuals with serious cardiovascular and cognitive health problems. You can find resveratrol in our One Daily multivitamin, Six Daily multivitamin, and of course, our Resveratrol Ultra formula. This complex combines resveratrol with red wine extract, grape seed extract and green tea extract creating a superb choice for anti-aging.*

Vitamin D Supports Hormone Production*

Although we can make vitamin D in our bodies when exposed to sunlight, many Americans do not get enough vitamin D. Without vitamin D our ability to create hormones such as testosterone or develop strong bones would be impaired. Studies show that vitamin D deficiency can lead to an imbalance in brain neurotransmitters that regulate our mood.* The form of vitamin D that is closest to what we make in our bodies is vitamin D3, cholecalciferol. We use this form of vitamin D in our One Daily multivitamin, Six Daily multivitamin, Vitamin D3 Plus and Vitamin D3 formulas.

CoQ10: Essential for Heart Health*

Why is CoQ10 one of the best supplements for aging? This enzyme is ubiquitous throughout our bodies, so even small deficiencies can impact your health. CoQ10 is required to make ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which fuels muscles. CoQ10 can help you feel more energetic by supplying some of the raw materials the body needs to create muscle fuel.* The most important muscle in our body is the heart. CoQ10 is a fundamental nutrient for heart health which is why we include 100mg of CoQ10 in both of our multivitamin formulas.* We also provide this coenzyme on its own in CoQ10 200 mg, or in our customer favorite, CoQ10 + Alpha Lipoic Acid + Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl.

There are many different choices for anti-aging supplements. If you don’t know what to choose, a high quality multivitamin like Six Daily or One Daily is a great place to start. The latest research shows that multivitamins can have a positive effect on cognitive decline as we age.* No matter what your goals are for your health, you can trust Nature’s Lab to provide you with premium supplements that will help you feel your best.
