Diet and exercise are key to living longer, but supplements can bridge many dietary gaps and promote youthful cellular health and longevity to help us thrive. Calorie-restrictive diets support longevity by encouraging a healthy stress and inflammatory response and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. But calorie-restricted diets are hard to maintain. Compounds like resveratrol mimic the effects of caloric restriction. You can also promote longevity by managing senescent cell burden, encouraging youthful immune response and more.

What is resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a plant compound that occurs in red grapes, red wine and Japanese knotweed. Resveratrol activates some of the metabolic pathways that stimulate youthful gene expression. It also supports healthy insulin response and healthy mitochondrial function.

How do you help inhibit oxidative stress?

Antioxidants that include beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, glutathione and the amino acid L-cysteine can help inhibit oxidative stress. Although our diets provide small amounts of these nutrients, supplementation can boost antioxidant defenses to support optimal whole-body health.

How can I age less quickly?

Subjecting your body to stress, including the cellular stressors of toxins, smoking and processed foods, causes an acceleration of the aging process, so it is important to avoid harmful substances in our environment and diet. The body also needs to be nutritionally replete and have an arsenal of antioxidants to combat aging, so it is important to eat variety of different colored fruits and vegetables and take a quality multivitamin.
