When we talk about anti aging, we’re talking both in terms of effects inside and outside the body. We talk often about taking certain antioxidants like superoxide dismutase, glutathione, vitamin c, etc, because we all know that antioxidants are great for our bodies, and really help to detoxify our systems and generally make them run more efficiently.
With that in mind, one of our key supplements for anti-aging is called NRF2 Antiox Pathway. NRF2 is a genetic pathway that induces certain cells to produce antioxidants naturally. So not only is it important that we get antioxidants in our diet, but by opening up the NRF2 pathway, we give our bodies the ability to actually produce more detoxification enzymes. NRF2 Antiox Pathway does this really well. It opens up that genetic pathway and allows for antioxidants to be produced at a higher rate.
The second supplement in the package is excellent for anti aging on the outside of our bodies. We all know collagen is one of the substances in the skin that helps with the skin tone, firmness, and elasticity of the skin. Unfortunately, as we age, that collagen breaks down faster and doesn’t get replaced as quickly. Our supplement, Radiance, is a collagen enhancer. It supports and activates the enzymes in the cells that make collagen naturally. This allows the skin to put that collagen to work. We’re willing to spend loads on creams and collagen-enhancing masks, but the main focus should be on maximizing the natural cellular production of collagen. We’re always better off working to make our bodies use their natural systems more effectively and efficiently than trying to work out the problem from the other side.
Many of us have enzymatic genetic defects in our bodies that prevent the production of glutathione. Glutathione is one of the most powerful and potent antioxidants in the body, in the liver specifically. It’s involved in the detoxification of everything from toxins, hormones, to detoxing the foods we eat and daily exposures. We see in the lab that when glutathione is given, there is a very positive effect on the oxidative stress levels in the body, and the breakdown processes of cells and tissue is slowed greatly due to the super antioxidative effect of glutathione.
One of the downsides of glutathione, is that until recently it had to be given topically, intravenously, or by injection. Fortunately for us, we now have an acetylated form of glutathione which makes the absorption much easier. Because glutathione is so vital to the detoxification of our bodies, we include a very healthy dose in the iRevitalize IV.
It’s also one of our most popular add ons. To extend the effect, we offer the acetylated form in capsules, which is more stable and can be taken orally with great effect.
