Vitamins, Antioxidants and Aging
Slowing the Aging Process

Well, we all know what aging is.  Our cells seem to be preprogrammed to slow down and stop functioning properly, and then one day we all die.  However, this process seems to be accelerated by a lack of certain nutrients like vitamins & minerals, especially the antioxidant vitamins.  So if we focus on supplying these vitamins in our diet, we can slow down the aging process.

Common Symptoms of Aging

Wrinkles, poor digestion and assimilation of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, decrease in lean body mass, poor skin, organ and muscle tone, memory loss or impairment, decreased cognitive skills, achy and stiff joints, lowered immunity, loss of libido.

Common Causes of Aging

Well, I'm sure there are many theories about why we have to age and one day die.  It does appear that the mechanism that causes aging has to do with excess free radical formation, and so anything we can do to quench those free radicals can be helpful, like taking antioxidant vitamins.

A Thought To Ponder

It is known that we only use less than 1% of the capacity of the human brain during our lifetimes, and it seems we were made to live far longer the short lifespan we currently enjoy, perhaps even forever.  However, the current human condition, ever since Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden of Eden and He sentenced them to die, is one of dying.  This is in spite of much scientific speculation about how the cells and the body appear to have been designed to live forever, especially if we could supply them with an adequate supply of nutrients like vitamins and minerals, especially the antioxidant vitamins.  If you would like to know more about what the Bible has to say about this, please e-mail me.  All we can do in this system of things is to try to do the best we know how to take care of our bodies and make them last as long as possible, and this may include supplementing with antioxidant vitamins, however the Bible says there is a way to have everlasting life.


Vitamins, Minerals and other Nutritional Supplements

Antioxidants are a key to anti-aging*, because they neutralize those free radicals.  There is evidence that not only can antioxidant vitamins slow the aging process down, but they can also ward off many diseases like cancer, macular degeneration, heart disease and more*.  Some of the most important antioxidant vitamins seem to be the B and C vitamin complexes, co-enzyme Q-10, selenium, vitamin E, DHLA and green tea.  As we get older, digestive enzymes can also be helpful*. If you are not getting enough minerals, you might want to consider adding a greens supplement and coral minerals for added calcium, magnesium and trace minerals.   Both chlorella and ginseng, although not vitamins, are excellent for enhancing your immune system, which can help enhance longevity*.  Super Juices like Goji Juice, Acai Juice and Mangosteen Juice are full of antioxidants and other nutrients that can help combat aging*.  Just make sure and get a 100% pure super juice nutritional supplement, not a watered down version or one with chemical additives like most of the juices out there.

DHLA – The King of Antioxidants

Although not spoken of in the media with any frequency, DHLA is the ONLY antioxidant vitamin that can quench EVERY known free radical.  It also recycles all the other major antioxidants, including vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q-10.  It is far more powerful than alpha lipoic acid. 


Recommended Vitamin, Antioxidant and other Nutritional Supplements*:
Anti-Aging Food Choices*

Getting enough of the right kind of fats and not eating refined foods like white sugar and white flour are very important in keeping your body young, because bad fats and refined foods deplete vitamins and other nutrients from your body.  It is also very important to get enough antioxidant vitamins, and the amount of these antioxidants has decreased in our food by over 50%.  This is why, although food choices are important, you may want to consider supplementing at least with antioxidant vitamins if you are concerned about staying young for as long as possible.  Many of the healthy, long-lived peoples ate plenty of saturated fats like pork lard and coconut oil and ate a whole foods diet.  They also included vitamin, enzyme and probiotic- rich cultured foods in their diets, including yogurt, sauerkraut and 1 or 2 glasses of wine every day.

Besides vitamins, it is also important to get enough minerals in the diet, and this can be accomplished with nutrient-dense and vitamin rich foods and mineral rich meat and fish broths.

Other Anti-Aging Ideas*

Take a walk every day if you can, keep your weight down and don't smoke.  All these have been shown to increase longevity.  Promoting an alkaline system with plenty of vitamins and antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables, like berries, and green drinks and miso can help too.
