The concept of Youth in a Pill is fast becoming a reality. It still may be years before eternal youth comes in a capsule, but there is a variety of vitamins and pills that will help you to maintain a more youthful appearance. If we include in our diet enough anti-oxidants, nutrients and a range of fatty acids, we can increase vitality, mental alertness and have better physique. As our body have to deal with increasing levels of pollution, stress and processed foods, we must include supplements in our diet to achieve physical balance. The proper supplementation can make you look and feel fantastic at any age.
If you want to take the holistic approach and tackle the anti-aging process from within you must opt for anti-oxidants first as they counteract the process of oxidation caused by unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals. Free radicals are triggered by sunlight, cigarette smoke, pollution and alcohol.
The superstars of vitamins and minerals are:
Vitamin A – Essential for healthy skin and resistance to infection. Great for acne as it builds better immunity and flush out skin impurities.
Vitamin E – Strengthens skin tissues and aid skin elasticity. Prevents damage to organs, especially the heart.
Vitamin C – Heals and repairs tissues, aid formation of collagen, reduces appearance of broken capillaries, essential for healthy bones, teeth and gums. If you are a smoker you should maintain an adequate daily intake.
Selenium – Works with vitamin E to prevent free radical damage to cell membranes.
Grapeseed – Works with vitamin C, helps with skin elasticity and reduce cell damage.
COENZYME Q10 – is a powerful anti-oxidant and free radical scavenger which is present in every cell in the body and diminish with age.
OPC (Oligomeric ProanthoCyanidins) – Heals the body at a cellular level, slowing the aging process. Contribute to the production of collagen and improve the cellular function of the skin. This potent ingredient is now available in a capsule call Anthogenol. Anthogenol contains Masquelier’s Original OPCs and works from within by offering protection to cell membranes. It aids skin moisture and elasticity while protecting against the breakdown of skin collagen.
Zinc – Stabilizes acne, eczema and dry or oily skin as well as balancing hormone production.
Iron – Manufactures hemoglobin (the pigment in red blood cells that carries oxygen to all parts of body) and gives skin healthy glow.
Another most important anti-aging supplement is the Human Growth Hormone (HGH).
Also known as somatotropin, HGH consists of 191 amino acids and is the ‘master’ hormone produced by the pituitary gland. Around the age of 20 our natural production of somatotropin (HGH) begins to decline at the average rate of 14% per decade. By the age of 40 it will decrease 30%, and by the age of 60 by 80% on average.
The decline in somatotropin (HGH) correlates with many of the effects of aging including loss of lean body mass (muscle, bone, skin and internal organs), increase in total body fat, thinning and wrinkling of skin, decrease immune function and sexual desire.
HGH supplements can be the answer to many ailments. It is known to
Improve skin elasticity
Increase Immune functions
Reduced blood pressure
Increased memory retention
Decreased Menopausal symptoms
Reduced hot flushes
If you ever opt for HGH supplement go rather for the natural complex that have the ability to release your own Human Growth Hormone from the pituitary gland in the brain then for the artificially produced HGH that is injected. Injections of HGH are known to have some site effects and are not really potent.
