Anti-Aging & Antioxidants

Active filters

While 52% of Europeans want to live to a ripe old age, they also want to retain their physical independence and be able to live at home with all their intellectual faculties. 

The most important actions for healthy aging are a healthy lifestyle, regular physical activity and regular health screenings. 

Exposure to UV rays, stress, smoking and an unbalanced diet rich in processed foods are the main sources of free radicals or "oxidative stress" responsible for the accelerated ageing of our cells.

What are our anti-free radical defenses?

- free-radical traps: beta-carotene, pro-vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E...)

- free-radical neutralizers: enzymes (SOD, GPX, catalase, etc.) and cofactors (Zinc, Selenium, Manganese, Iron, Copper, etc.).

Nutritional advice for a diet rich in antioxidants: 

green: avocado, broccoli, kiwi, etc.

orange: carrots, melon, oranges, pumpkins...

red: tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries...

Other tips : 

Avoid sun exposure or use SPF 50 on all exposed areas, and reapply every e hours.Combat stress.Stop smoking.FOCUS on polyphenols :

The main ones are Resveratrol and Curcumin. In effective doses, they have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and are therefore preventive against cancer.

Prefer a glass of red wine to any other alcohol. In fact, moderate consumption (1 to 3 glasses of red wine a day) reduces cardiovascular mortality by 30 to 50% compared to non-consumers. This is the "FRENCH PARADOX" concept. The anti-radical molecule involved is RESVERATROL (a polyphenol).

2 glasses of red wine and a dietary supplement rich in resveratrol could be the cocktail of the centenarian.

New leads with epigenetics:

Living organisms adapt to their environment by modifying the expression or non-expression of their genes, and these modifications are transmissible from one generation to the next.

These changes are called EPIGENETICS, and include DNA methylation, acetylation and deacetylation, and microRNA. These mechanisms help to prevent the erroneous messages at the root of disease development (diabetes, degenerative diseases, cancers...).
