Scientists haven’t figured out how to stop birthdays every year, however, most experts agree: You can lessen the damaging effects of free radicals (highly charged, unstable substances in the body), which cause aging. Free radicals are cells missing one electron and they steal what they need, leaving a trail of destruction. “Aging is an accumulation of random damage to the building blocks of life- especially DNA – that begins early in life and eventually exceeds the body’s self repair capabilities,” explains anti-aging researcher Dr. Leonard Hayflick, at the University of California Berkeley.
Produced by toxins (including medications) and smoking; free radicals also occur with day-to-day bodily functions. Approximately 10 percent of the air we breathe turns into free radicals. In just one day, one human cell gets 10,000 free radical hits. “You can’t stop ‘em, but you can lick ‘em.”
The good news is the human body produces antioxidants to deactivate these damaging free radicals. The bad news is that this process becomes less and less effective as we grow older. Adding antioxidants to our diet from fruits, vegetables and vitamin supplements is a safe and smart thing to do. OneLifeUSA’s Advanced Anti-Oxidant formula is the perfect supplement for this.
As we age, our bodies don’t assimilate vitamins and nutrients from our food as well as they once did. Additionally, many of us have chronic disorders and digestive problems that make this malabsorption even worse. This makes nutritional supplements all that more important.
A study of seniors found that 90% have inadequate levels of vitamins A and C, B vitamins, calcium and iron. Others are deficient in vitamin D, which can lead to weakened bones, and vitamin B-12, which causes neurological problems.
Another B vitamin, folate (folic acid) protects against homocysteine, which damages DNA and has been implicated in heart disease. To protect against homocysteine, experts recommend taking folate along with vitamins B-6 and B-12.
To cover all your basic nutritional bases: OneLifeUSA’s B Optimal has 100% of the RDA of folate, vitamins B-6 and B-12 per capsule. Our Advanced Anti-Oxidant formula is famous for combating those damaging free radicals and you won’t have to worry about being deficient in vitamins A or C. Throw in throw in Coral Calcium or the Calcium Plus formula (both with vitamin D and magnesium) and you’ll have all your bases covered.
