How would you like to look and feel younger just by taking a pill? Wouldn’t we all? Effective anti-aging science considers all aspects of life to combat the effects that the accumulation of years has on our skin and internal organs. While there is no magic pill to turn back the clock on your appearance or health, some dietary supplements can give your body what it needs to fight the aging process both inside and out.
If you are ready to take the next step in your quest for a more youthful appearance and fewer internal signs of aging, try adding these five healthy anti-aging supplements to your routine.
We all know that Vitamin C is good for our immune systems—that’s why mom always told us to drink plenty of orange juice whenever we got a cold. However, this nutritional staple has several other added health benefits. For example, did you know that Vitamin C can help your cells regenerate? Healthy cell regeneration helps you recover from injury and illness quicker while giving you beautiful looking skin.
Vitamin E is perhaps best known for its classification as a powerful free-radical-fighting antioxidant. Many environmental factors such as pollution and UV radiation affect our health and appearance negatively, but Vitamin E helps reverse some of the damage we sustain. Like Vitamin C, it helps your body with skin cell regeneration, which minimizes the appearance of unsightly wrinkles.
Perhaps you’ve heard people talking about Coenzyme Q10 recently. While our bodies produce this nutrient naturally, as we age, that production slows down almost to a standstill. Since Coenzyme Q10 helps cells function more efficiently, that means as you age your organs might stop working like they used to. Taking a Coenzyme Q10 supplement can help combat that.
If you’ve ever shared a bottle of red wine over dinner with friends, then you’ve (perhaps unknowingly) reaped the benefits of resveratrol before. What you may not have known is that resveratrol is essential to the longevity of your body and mind. Researchers have shown that resveratrol can help prevent atherosclerosis, a precursor to heart disease. So, raise a glass—or just take a supplement.
Eating fish regularly has several well-documented health benefits. For example, the omega-3 fatty acids present in fish help to protect your eyes and heart from diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and heart disease. Taking a fish oil supplement gives you those benefits without the hassle of preparing a fish dinner. Just take the recommended amount with a less smelly meal.
Now that you know what these supplements can do for your fight against the aging process, you can start benefitting from them by including them in your daily routine.
