A lot of people notice that the number on their scale increases as they age, even while adhering to a sensible diet and exercise regimen. This leads to so much frustration that people sometimes resort to drastic and often, unhealthy treatment measures.Up to a certain point, exercise could yield a myriad of benefits. What causes this “what may seem to be an unavoidable” change in metabolism? One of the reasons is the mitochondrial damage caused by free radicals. How do we restore mitochondrial function and optimal metabolism then?
Several supplements work in concert to impact energy at the cellular level, providing wide-reaching health benefits (again, taking the right kind of supplements makes a difference). Resveratrol, a compound found in high quantity in the skin of grapes, in red wine and in plants, like giant knotweed, is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant. Resveratrol recently gained attention because of it’s ability to enhance longevity and support healthy mitochondrial function. One of the most effective ways to slow the pace of aging is a low calorie diet. It releases a longevity enzyme to help the body adapt- but few people can follow such a restrictive diet. Studies show that resveratrol duplicates the effects of calorie restriction and activates this enzyme without dieting! It also counters the effects of free radicals, shields your system from oxidative cell damage, speeds up cellular repair and supports a healthy heart.
Ubiquinol, the most active form of CoQ10, is the bioactive and reduced form of ubiquinone. Because ubiqiunol is very unstable outside the body and it readily converts to CoQ10, there has been no alternative to CoQ10 supplementation- until now. After more than 10 years of research, the first true ubiquinol product, UBQH, was developed using a patented stabilization process. This means that ubiquinol can go to work faster than CoQ10 alternatives! Ubiquinol works inside of the mitochondria, the “energy powerhouse” of the cell, to improve energy output. D-ribose, a unique, simple sugar, is a necessary component for the production of cellular energy. It is present in all living cells and essential for life. Because ribose does not exist as a free standing compound in foods, it must be produced in the body from other dietary nutrients. D-ribose is clinically proven to restore cellular energy needed to promote healthy tissue function, increase exercise tolerance and improve quality of life.
