Fight Back Against After-Meal Digestive Discomforts

With age comes a decline in vital enzymes needed for proper digestion, nutrient absorption, and elimination. The problem with commercial enzyme supplements is they contain amylases that quickly break down starches that then contribute to deadly after-meal glucose spikes. Taking a digestive enzyme formulation containing only proteases, lipases, and cellulases can restore digestive function and avoid gastro-intestinal distress, while helping to protect against carbohydrate-induced blood sugar surges.


Safely Modulate Inflammation

During an infection, the body requires protective acute inflammation to fight off foreign invaders. Over time, aging upsets the balance of the inflammatory response. The tragic result is ongoing chronic inflammation that underlies most diseases of aging. Fortunately, scientists have discovered that black cumin seed oil safely modulates the balance of the inflammatory response.

Ceramides Nourish Skin From Within

Youthful skin is rich in ceramide molecules that nourish the skin matrix keeping it firm and supple. With age, our production of ceramides declines resulting in the loss of vital moisture.  Researchers have discovered a method to extract ceramides from whole grain wheat. Clinical studies document the ability of these ceramides to nourish aging skin from within and avoid the external signs of aging such as dryness and wrinkles.

CoQ10: A Critical Longevity Factor

While best known for heart health, extensive research shows that CoQ10 boosts cellular energy output throughout the body.  By increasing the efficiency of our mitochondrial powerhouses, CoQ10 reduces oxidant damage and provides protection for every cell in the body. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that CoQ10 can extend life span, suggesting important longevity benefits for humans.
