Can You Stop Cellular Aging?
We’re all for aging. For many folks, the natural process of getting older means growing wiser and more comfortable in their own skin. Consider that silver hair a badge of honor! What we’re not for is aging on the cellular level. Aging gracefully means taking care of your cellular health, so you’re in good physical and mental shape as you enter your sixties, seventies, and beyond. (If you’re lucky, way beyond!)
How quickly you age biologically depends on all kinds of factors. The genetic hand you’re dealt is the obvious one, and you can’t do much about that. But your diet, exercise habits, and the free radical damage you accumulate also play a role. And there, you’ve got some control. You can eat well. You can exercise regularly. And you can help your body remove environmental stressors that can speed up the aging process.
Flor•Essence® as a Daily Cleanse
Throughout the centuries, many herbs have been used in folk medicine to help cleanse the body. A review published in Phytotherapy Research analyzed how certain herbs were able to support the body’s cleansing processes. These eight herbs are all featured in Flor•Essence®. This is what the researchers found.
- Burdockincreases populations of friendly bacteria in your gut, and that helps your GI tract give waste products in your system the boot*
- Slippery Elm Barkspeeds up the transit time of waste in your GI tract, to support regularity*
- Kelpis rich in fiber and helps move waste through your system*
- Blessed Thistlehelps support liver health. Maybe that’s why they call this herb “blessed.”
- Red Cloversupports immune health, especially production of phagocytes*
- Sheep Sorrell and Turkish Rhubarb Rootsupport intestinal health and bowel regularity*
- Watercresscontains Indole-3-carbinol, the same compound that makes cruciferous veggies like broccoli and kale so healthy*
Together, “the great eight” herbs of Flor•Essence® support your body’s natural cleansing systems at the cellular level and reduce the accumulation of free radical damage.* By helping your digestive and immune systems, Flor•Essence® supports healthy aging.*
Omega Brain+ for Mental Sharpness
About a decade ago, a group of researchers shook the nutritional world with an important discovery: omega-3 fatty acids found in fish can slow telomere shortening — a key biological process that contributes to cellular aging.
Your telomeres are little protective caps on the end of your chromosomes. They’re often compared to the plastic caps on the end of shoelaces, because they keep your chromosomes from “fraying.” Scientists can get a good idea of how old you are biologically by looking at the length of your telomeres. Longer telomeres = younger biological age.
You can imagine how excited the scientific community got when a 2010 study found that people with the highest blood levels of omega-3s had the slowest rate of telomere shortening.* That meant a simple supplement could help prevent cellular aging! More recently, research has found that higher levels of omega-3s also protect against stress and support cardiovascular and brain health— key factors that can impact the degree of cellular aging.*
This may partially explain why omega-3s are so good for your brain.* A study in older folks found those with higher levels of omega-3s in their blood had better scores on cognitive tests.* Another study found people with more omega-3s in their system had better flood flow to regions of the brain linked to memory and cognition.*
Clearly, we should all be taking an omega-3 supplement! But what if you don’t want to eat fish or take a fish oil supplement? Not to worry, plants have got you covered. Just go straight to the source where the fish get their omegas: algae.
Made from tank-grown algae, Omega Brain+ provides a pure, toxin-free, vegan alternative to fish oil that’s standardized for consistency. Each two-capsule serving provides 500 mg of EPA and DHA stabilized with antioxidants to preserve freshness. Because there’s no fish, there’s no fishy taste or smell!
Together, Flor•Essence® and Omega Brain+ can help support cellular health in your body and brain, proving that — age? Yeah, it really is just a number.
