Today I want to share something close to my heart with you – the aging journey. I’ve learned to embrace each wrinkle, each gray hair, and every year that adds to my age because it’s all part of the beautiful journey that is my life. I won’t lie; getting here has taken a lot of work. With each life stage, I’ve learned to love myself more, accept the changes, and appreciate the person I’ve become.
While I’m all about embracing my age and looking forward to the wisdom and adventures that come with more years, I also understand that the physical aging process needs a little bit of a helping hand. My body isn’t quite as springy as it was in my twenties, and I’m not expecting it to be! But I do want to treat it the best that I can so I can enjoy my life as long as possible.
Aging can impact our bodies in various ways. It can slow down our metabolism, decrease skin elasticity, and lead to decreasing bone density and muscle mass. But don’t let that get you down. I’ve discovered great tactics to help my body feel my best, and you can use them too! I’ve learned that regular exercise, eating nutrient-dense foods, sipping on freshly juiced organic veggies, and hydrating my body with plenty of water can make a massive difference. And let’s not forget the powerful role of the right supplements, (which have become my secret to aging gracefully!).
And speaking of supplements, let’s dive into some that can pack a punch in your graceful aging journey. Don’t forget to always consult your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen!
Coenzyme Q10, often called CoQ10, is like a tiny defender for our skin, helping to ward off the signs of aging. However, our bodies produce less of this helpful substance as we age. In fact, a recent study found that a special skin cream, loaded with CoQ10, could boost the amount of collagen (what keeps our skin firm) and increase the number of skin-repairing fibroblast cells. So, getting enough CoQ10 from our diet (in the form of supplements) could help us keep our skin youthful as we age. We need around 1000 mg of COQ-10 supplements daily to increase our natural levels.
Mitopure is a powerful supplement packed with Urolithin A, a natural substance that rejuvenates our cells and boosts energy, muscle strength, and endurance. Developed by Swiss scientists, Mitopure supercharges our cells’ energy factories, known as mitochondria, to maintain muscle health and slow aging. The best part? Mitopure provides six times more Urolithin A than food sources like pomegranates, nuts, and berries without any added sugar. If you’re seeking anti-aging solutions, Mitopure is a game changer!
NAD, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a crucial molecule in our bodies that helps us create energy and keep our cells healthy. However, as we get older, our NAD levels drop, which can lead to health issues. Think of NAD as the battery of our cells – when it’s full, we’re energetic, and our bodies function well, but as we age, this battery starts to run low. NAD supplements can help recharge this battery, potentially slowing aging and keeping our cells healthier for longer.
Resveratrol is a natural ingredient found in foods like red wine, dark chocolate, and certain berries. It’s a powerhouse nutrient for your body. This super ingredient can slow down aging and fight off diseases. It can also help protect our bodies from various health problems like heart disease, obesity, and brain-related issues. Brands like Pure Resveratrol Dr. Sinclair, Tru Niagen, and Renee offer supplements with a recommended dosage of 1000 mg for those who want a more concentrated dose.
Collagen is like our body’s natural fountain of youth, found in everything from our skin to our joints. It’s a super protein that keeps our skin looking firm and fresh and our joints moving smoothly. However, we need help keeping our collagen levels up as we age. That’s where products like Vital Proteins come in – packed with collagen that’s easy for our bodies to use. Another great source of collagen is bone broth, which is a tasty part of my S.O.U.P. Cleanse. I heat my bone broth and sip it every morning for a collagen boost and a comforting treat. Consuming more collagen can help reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and joint pain, making us feel and look younger. I love adding a couple of scoops of collagen to my daily smoothie to help me feel my best.
Speaking of my delivered S.O.U.P. Cleanse, it’s ideal for anyone interested in learning to love the aging process! In addition to the bone broth, the S.O.U.P Cleanse loaded with age-defying nutrients, superfoods, and anti-inflammatory ingredients for rejuvenation.
