Supplements for Longevity


Supplements for Longevity

Longevity is a trendy phrase coined by health enthusiasts that refers to the quality of life as we age. We can all agree that no one wants to spend their later years on earth confined to bed. Living as long as possible, therefore, really isn’t the goal.

Instead, those who are interested in promoting a longer health span wish to extend the “period of life where good health prevails, free from the less desirable effects of natural aging.” 

Your body is an interconnected system. For example, consider this – what good is a healthy heart if your mental health or joint health are suffering? In truth, the best longevity approach is to take care of yourself – your whole self. Certain supplements benefit the whole body, and these should be included in your daily prescription. Here are five that are a must for longevity. 

1. Curcumin (Turmeric)

Encouraging a healthy inflammatory response is crucial for whole-body health as you age. Curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, is an invaluable longevity supplement for inhibiting inflammatory factors that affect joint, brain, and organ health.

Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that offers powerful protective properties for cells. For example, curcumin activates proteins that help to promote longevity and delay cellular senescence, a process that accelerates aging and occurs when cells stop dividing.

Curcumin has also been linked to a lower risk of cognitive decline, postponement of age-related disease, and the reduction of age-related symptoms. It combats cellular damage, a key component of increasing a healthy lifespan.

It’s important to know that curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body. Clear Curcumin contains a form that is one of the most absorbable forms on the market, you may also want to consider Clear Relief anti-inflammatory and longevity blend that is rich in ginger, curcumin, boswellia, quercitin, rosemary, resveratrol, and enzymes. You simply can’t get enough of it through diet to have much impact. These formulas will give you the cellular benefits for a lifetime. Both formulas also may assist with weight loss and are normally taken at two capsules per day. 

2. Green Tea

EGCG, short for epigallocatechin gallate, is found naturally in green tea. This polyphenol compound offers many benefits including these three. Green tea has also been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer and protect against age-related diseases like diabetes. Read our blog Three fresh reasons to have more green tea.

The longevity benefits of EGCG come from its ability to restore the mitochondrial function of cells and its ability to induce autophagy, a process by which the body recycles damaged cellular material to produce healthy new cells.

Green tea may also offer anti-aging benefits for the skin by protecting against UV damage and reducing hyperpigmentation. There’s also evidence to suggest that green tea may slow brain aging by reducing stress and activating nerve cells.

Of course, you can get more EGCG in your life by drinking green tea, – at least four cups per day but it’s also available in concentrated green tea extract supplements. Take two capsules per day on rising – it also helps to control your appetite. Our green tea is combined with the superfood and antioxidant moringa. 

3. Collagen

We have shared about the benefits of collagen in many newsletters and articles – you can see the collagen top 10 here. One of the main reasons we want to supplement with this vital nutrient is that production slows with age, leading to the acceleration of skin aging – fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in particular.

Research suggests that collagen supplementation may help to maintain skin structure and reduce dryness, leading to a more youthful appearance. When combined with other skin-supporting ingredients, such as biotin, significant improvements in elasticity, hydration, and texture were reported.

Promising research also shows it helps support bone strength with age and supports the production of thyroid hormone and mood hormones. As well as healthy nails and hair. 

4. Vitamin D 3

Most of us know that vitamin D3 crucial for immunity and bone health, but the effects go much further than that. Vitamin D3 plays a key role in whole body health, potentially increasing longevity by reducing the risk of age-related disease.

Vitamin D3 is essential for cardiovascular function and has neuroprotective effects against cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s. It’s also a strong anti-aging nutrient for the skin, offering protection against UV damage.  

Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency is common and blood levels should be tested. Look for an optimal value to be between 125 to 200. Most adults should supplement 2000 – 5000IU/day or some sources recommend a higher dose once per week. Check with your MD or ND. 

5. Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that’s necessary for more than 300 different enzymatic reactions in the body, including ATP (energy) production and DNA repair. Both of which are vital for healthy longevity. 

Beyond this, magnesium deficiency have been linked to chronic inflammation, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and even several types of cancer. And most of us don’t get enough of it – it is the most common deficiency followed by zinc. For a great zinc supplement check out Clear Zinc 50.

The form of magnesium you take is essential. Our Magnesium biglycinate contains one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium. The magnesium is chelated with two glycine molecules it will not cause digestive upset it assists with bowel regularity, blood sugar, and insulin balance, calms the nervous system, improves sleep, and can assist with bone density and PMS. We offer magnesium biglycinate 150mg and magnesium biglycinate 180mg
