4 Ingredients that Fight the Effects of Aging
As we age, we find that our hair is growing thinner, our skin is starting to wrinkle and sag, our libido is starting to slow down, our weight is harder to control…
The long and short of it is that it’s hard to “age gracefully” when our reflections no longer match our identities, or when we’re no longer able to use our bodies in the ways we once did.
While time is impossible to halt, some of the damage it has inflicted upon our bodies can be helped. We do have the power to restrengthen our joints, sharpen our minds, and restore some vitality to our skin — among other things.
The solution is often multi-faceted, allowing great anti-aging goals to be achieved with the help of various therapies. And, the power of nutrition in anti-aging strategies should never be underestimated.
NutriPlex Formulas’ Super Greens contains 18 nutrient-dense ingredients, designed to support, rebuild, and strengthen every system in the body. Its antioxidant properties make it a powerful tool for fighting off free radicals — substances that cause deterioration in organs, tissues, and cells.
Take a look at four of Super Greens’ ingredients for a glimpse into some of the formula’s many anti-aging benefits:
Grape Seed Extract
Grape Seed Extract is a potent antioxidant, and its many compounds (including its well- known resveratrol) have antibacterial, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also known to be beneficial for those suffering from cholesterol, hypertension, and other cardiovascular issues — as well as cognitive decline and weakness in bones. Grape Seed Extract has also been lauded for protecting the skin’s collagen and elastin.
Spirulina has been referred to as “miracle from the sea” because it is so widely known for its powerful and many medicinal uses. Among its many anti- aging benefits, Spirulina has been used to protect against disease, arthritis, eye disorders (such as macular degeneration and cataracts), and the harmful effects of radiation and heavy metals. It works to safeguard the brain from free radicals, warding off decline, and its B-vitamin content enhances cognitive function. Spirulina also serves as an effective libido enhancer.
Largely due to its prodigious vitamin C content, the Acerola berry is regarded as one of the best anti-aging herbs in existence. Acerola’s cosmetic benefits include collagen production, tissue strengthening and repair, maintenance of blood vessel integrity, and defense against disease and infections. Acerola also contributes to faster, more effective wound healing and the promotion of dental health.
Packing in 17 essential amino acids, 90 minerals, 13 vitamins, and 80 enzymes, Wheat Grass wages a fierce war against the effects of aging. This cereal grass consists of 70 percent chlorophyll —a killer of carcinogens and rejuvenator of tissues and organs, which has been used to reduce varicose veins, treat inflammation and wounds, and reduce oxidative stress. Amazingly, Wheat Grass has also been cited as capable of changing gray hair back to its original color and even firming loose and sagging skin.
