Healthy Supplements for Healthy Aging

From our friends at Pure Encapsulations

Supporting healthy aging and longevity is a focal point for many, especially as we continue to live longer. While a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential factors in promoting optimal health and functioning throughout your life, nutritional supplements are also an integral component of any healthy aging plan. Pure Encapsulations offers a wide variety of high-quality formulas that specifically target age-related health goals like optimizing cognitive function, boosting immune health, supporting energy levels and maintaining a strong antioxidant defense.

To highlight a few:

Now with Metafolin L-5-MTHF
This broad-spectrum, multi-nutrient supplement provides exceptional nutritional support for daily wellness, as well as focused support for optimal glucose utilization and cardiovascular and liver health. Utilizing some of the most highly recognized antioxidants, nutrients and botanicals, UltraNutrient features alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10 and reduced glutathione, as well as standardized extracts of hawthorn, ginger, milk thistle and turmeric. This best-selling formula also offers activated forms of vitamins and minerals recognized for their enhanced bioavailability and potency, including L-5MTHF, riboflavin 5’ phosphate and pyridoxal 5’ phosphate.*

DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant adrenal steroid hormone in the body. Naturally made by the adrenal glands, DHEA travels into cells throughout the body where it is converted into androgens and estrogens. These hormones regulate fat and mineral metabolism, endocrine and reproductive function, and energy levels. The amount of each hormone conversion depends on an individual’s biochemistry, age and sex. Research indicates that supplementing with DHEA may be associated with promoting healthy emotional wellbeing, immune function, lean body mass and sexual function. Research also indicates that DHEA levels peak around age 25 and then decline steadily. Pure Encapsulations DHEA is micronized to increase absorption and is made with 99 percent pure, pharmaceutical- grade DHEA.

Pregnenolone, 3-alpha-hydroxy-5-beta-pregnen-20-one, is a natural steroid hormone produced in the body from cholesterol. It has been described as the “grandmother of all steroid hormones,” since all steroid hormones—more than 150 of them—are derived from pregnenolone. Supplementing with pregnenolone has been linked with positive support of the immune system, mood and memory. In the body, it converts to DHEA and/or progesterone according to the body’s needs. Studies suggest that the body makes 60 percent less of this hormone at age 75 than it does at age 35, indicating a potential need for support with supplementation.*

Resveratrol & Resveratrol EXTRA
Resveratrol promotes cardiovascular health, helping to maintain healthy platelet function and arachidonic acid metabolism. Researchers from the Harvard Medical School suggest that it may also promote overall health, metabolic function and longevity. One capsule of Pure Encapsulations’ Resveratrol EXTRA contains 100 mg of trans resveratrol, the amount roughly equivalent to that found in an average of 66 bottles of red wine. This formula is combined with grape seed extract and red wine polyphenols for synergistic support of healthy cellular and cardiovascular function.*
