Extend Your Lifespan With These Natural Supplements

Jan 23, 2008
The first line of defense is sound nutrition and of course exercise, but also necessary are supplements. This is due to free radical damage. With supplements you will be able to provide optimal cellular protection. There are various state-of-the-art anti-aging supplements that are proven to work thanks to research. Perhaps you can consider this your very own Anti-Aging Life Extending Supplement Program.

These nutritional supplements will reinforce revitalisation by providing you with protection against free radicals, supporting repair of injured cells, facilitating replacement of dead cells, and boosting production of cellular energy. Without cellular energy you would feel run down most of the time. Through supporting your nutritional intake with supplements, you will be guarding against disease, slowing down the aging process, and improving your quality of life.

Before starting, it is a good idea to take early detection tests in case you are in a transitional phase of dysfunction. Anti-aging and alternative medicine doctors recommend various tests. These include:

Antioxidant profile - test which measures the most important antioxidant nutrients.

Comprehensive digestive stool analysis - asseses digestive function. The hepatic detoxification profile and intestinal permeability profile are also important.

Food allergy test - blood test which identifies 100 antibodies produced in response to specific food allergens.

Heart scan - detects artherosclerotic plaque, which leads to arterial hardening and clogging.

Prostate-specific antigen test - detects prostate abnormalities/cancer.

Bone density exam - detects early signs of osteoporosis.

Oxidative stress profile - tests the degree of free radical damage.

Hormone profile - detects hormonal levels so that your physician can prescribe the appropriate amount and type of hormones your body needs.

These types of tests will help you prevent overt disease by allowing you to detect any metabolic imbalances. You will also be able to find out which supplements you need, and if you retest, you will be able to find out if what you are doing (supplements) are working to improve your health and prevent disease.

To facilitate life extension and actively participate in an anti-aging program, the following supplements are recommended by Timothy J. Smith, MD and creator of The Revolutionary Anti-Aging Program.

Vitamins and minerals Take a high quality multivitamin/mineral supplement if nothing else. These essential nutrients have the most direct relation to cellular protection, repair, and renewal.

Essential fatty acids If you follow the standard American diet, you are very likely to be deficient in these healthy fats. These healthy fats replace the bad fats in your body and also support the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins influence the immune, hormonal, circulatory, nervous, excretory, and reproductive systems.

Coenzyme Q10 CoQ 10 production declines after the age of 30, so it is important to supplement with this potent antioxidant. It neutralizes free radicals and is vital to staying young.

Ginseng This popular herb strengthens the immune system, stimulates hormonal production, enhances mental function, and protects your body against the effects of stress. Wow!

Ginkgo This is the most effective weapon against age-related brain disorders. It works by sharpening cognitive function and memory, and by preventing senile dementia and stroke.

Garlic Garlic has age-reversing effects on the cardiovascular and immune system. It helps to prevent artherosclerosis and cancer.

DHEA This is the superstar of anti-aging, though it is best you work closely with a qualified practitioner. DHEA fights degeneration and slows aging. It makes people feel so young again.

Pregnenolone This supplement slows degenerative diseases and is the most powerful intelligence and memory enhancing agent.

Melatonin This potent antioxidant is well known for helping you go to sleep. It also combats the effects of stress and fights disease.

Thyroid Hormone Have yourself tested for undiagnosed hypoclinical thyroidism. It is easily corrected with natural thyroid hormone replacement.

Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone Depending on whether you are male or female, have your levels tested so you can have natural replacement if necessary.

Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) ALC prevents the loss of nerve cells. It also maximizes the production of neurotransmitters to enable nerve cell communication. ALC reverses brain aging while sharpening your memory, alertness, and learning ability.

Fiber For improvement in digestion, fiber is a hero. In studies, low-fiber diets are linked to heart disease and cancer.

Probiotics Since the majority of the immune system is in the digestive system, you need to keep it healthy. Probiotics give you the necessary good bacteria to help you fight infections and other degenerative diseases.

Please consult with your alternative medicine or anti-aging doctor for the appropriate doses according to your needs. It is unnecessary and impractical to take all of these supplements at the same time. Just explore your needs or weaknesses with your physician or other qualified health care provider to find the right anti-aging life-extending supplements for you.
