HEALTHY FOOD · MARCH 2018 SHOULD YOU BE TAKING AN ANTI-AGING SUPPLEMENT? As we age, every part of our bodies change. That’s a fact of life. When we hit our forties, we begin to notice slight changes. Do crow’s feet ring a bell for anyone? In our thirties, we might start to see a sprig of gray hair. Perhaps, we’ve lost a little of that spring in our step. No matter how big or small the change is, chances are we’ve taken notice of it. We might not yet be ready to acknowledge it, but it’s there. Once you learn to accept it, you can embrace the idea of doing something about it. Like your mother always told you, wellbalanced nutrition is best. Start with what you eat to get your neurons firing, your hormones working in your favor, and your brain cells ready to attack and make you more alert, more in tune with your body, and ready to face the day. That sounds easy enough, right? But that’s only the beginning of what you should do to optimize your health and well-being. Of course, you want to eat your fruits and vegetables. You want to limit salt, starches, sugar, and fats. You want to avoid late-night snacking and quit running to the vending machine in the mid-afternoon, but how do you go about getting to the point that you can do all those things and not feel lousy? You need to make a plan and take a good, hard look at what you’re taking in. Is it enough to give you a youth-boosting jumpstart on your health? Chances are it’s not. We may just need a supplement to help get us over the hump, so to speak. Take it from the experts; it’s difficult to get your daily intake of good-for-you nutrients. Life is busy. It might take a little more effort than you’re willing to part with to get there, but if your health is truly something you want to improve, making changes doesn’t have to be difficult. HERE’S WHAT THE EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY: CoQ10 is the best choices to fight 01 aging. It works by focusing on mitochondrial health and boosting cellular energy. It also protects the skin against environmental stressors and those pesky free radicals. Curcumin is a super antiinflammatory ingredient that is 02 often found in turmeric. Some studies suggest it might also help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. By the time you reach your early to midthirties, significant changes are happening under the surface. To combat them before they happen, your best course of action is to do something now. Incorporate supplements to get you on the right track. Consult your physician or a nutritionist to help you make the right decision and start to reap the benefits of a healthy diet now and, hopefully, ward off potential complications of aging later in life. Think about all it can do for both your physical well-being, your outside appearance, and deep down on a cellular level. You might be surprised to know many supplements have hidden benefits that could make significant changes in your body. Why allow your body to deteriorate when there are products available – most natural – that can help you continue to thrive and live in the way you're accustomed to? A little preventative care never hurts. By Julianna Lowe 14 HEALTHY MAGAZINE
