Anti-aging Vitamins - Fighting Free Radicals.

Mar 10, 2008
Anti-oxidants are the protective force that fight against free radicals. Anti aging vitamins assist by increasing the intake of anti-oxidants.

Anti aging vitamins are necessary for fighting free radicals that cause oxidative stress and the aging process. A free radical is an unstable molecule which runs amok, puncturing cell membranes, destroying enzymes and weakening arteries. They do occur naturally but are also generated by UV radiation, environmental pollutants and food additives to name a few.

There are two methods of countering aging and degenerative diseases (both free radical based).

1. Limiting free radical exposure. (another topic)

2. Increasing the intake of anti-oxidants using anti-aging vitamins.

Although the key anti-oxidants overlap they all have special skills so a variety is required.
Note if you are taking any type of medication, seek medical advice before using anti ageing vitamins.

The six essential anti-aging vitamins are;

Vitamin C

- This powerhouse anti-oxidant is the workhorse of the detox system, invariably under-supplied, anti aging vitamin c lowers blood pressure, boosts the immune system, fights colds an flu, increases sperm production and is a great cancer fighter.

This water soluble blood specialist must be buffered (buffered vitamin C offers the same benefits of regular vitamin C and is ideal for those with sensitive stomachs. Buffered vitamin C contains small amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium to help with digestion and provide the "buffering" effect) and should always contain bioflavonoids. (One of the main activities of bioflavonoids is to scavenge free radicals.

Vitamin E

- Vitamins supplements act as a powerful antioxidant by neutralizing free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage. Helps to prevent hardening of the blood arteries, maintains healthy formation of red blood cells, helps repair cell damage and skin repair.

Combine Vitamin E with Vitamin C to maintain healthy Circulatory System,

Vitamin A

- Also has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage, also called retinol, helps keep your eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist. It also plays an important role in proper bone formation, reproduction and vision.

CoEnzyme Q10

- Another key anti aging vitamin, Increases circulation, supports heart health. Millions of Japanese are prescribed this nutrient as a mainstay in the treatment of heart disease.

Grape seed Extract

- Derived from grape seed extract Grape seed contains powerful phytomedicines that provide multiple benefits to the body, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory action, and free radical protection. Moderate allergic and inflammatory responses, supports the immune system, slow aging and strengthen and repair connective tissue, including that of the cardiovascular system.
A great anti aging product.

Supplementing anti aging vitamins alone is not the answer to optimum health. Building the habit
of good nutrition means a balanced diet with plenty of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and protein. However many foods no longer contain the nutrients we need on a daily basis, anti-aging vitamins fills this shortfall
