9 Ways to Make Anti-Aging a Reality!

Anti-Aging isn’t Science Fiction! Check Out These 9 Ways You Can Make It Happen Now!

What do you think of when you hear the term “anti-aging?” For many of us, anti-aging means returning to a more supple and youthful appearance. But anti-aging is so much more than simply looking good. Today, anti-aging is also about reclaiming the vitality of younger years. That’s a beauty that goes beyond skin deep.

In fact, a blotchy and sallow skin tone, the wrinkles and sagging, the graying and thinning of hair are all simply surface signs of what is going on beneath the skin as we grow older. Aging begins at the cellular level and affects our hearing, eyesight, energy levels, hair loss, and even our interest and abilities in sexual intimacy. Anti-aging, then, is the slowing down or -in some cases- the reversal of cellular deterioration.

11 Great Anti-Aging Foods!

Can we really slow aging? That question has driven humanity to some amazing actions through the centuries. That’s because, for most of that time, mankind was certain the answer to anti-aging always lay beyond the horizon.

We had to find the Fountain of Youth, or dine on the Peaches of Immortality, or (better send your daughter out of the room right now) eat a mermaid. Think of all the trouble that could have been avoided if our ancestors had known they needn’t look any further than their own gardens, streams, and farms.

4 Benefits Of The Myers’ Cocktail Vitamin Drip

The Myers’ Cocktail Is A Supplement & Vitamin Drip Rediscovered To Battle Anti Aging, Chronic Disease Therapy & More

Once, it was fiction: a magical, anti aging potion that extends life, increases vitality, and fights disease. From ancient times onward, humankind has sought it. But myth became reality when Dr. John Myers of Johns Hopkins Hospital developed a potent vitamin drip that can be customized to patient needs.

MYERS DIET - 1960S

But here’s the real shocker. The “Myers’ cocktail” has been with us since the 1960’s. So why has it taken so long to rediscover the disease fighting, anti aging advantages of this remarkable medical development? The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has been watching the emerging popularity of the vitamin drip. As a leading U.S.-based regenerative medicine clinic, NSI considers educating the public about medical trends an important part of its healthcare mission.

Sorting out fact from fiction about the Myers’ cocktail.

So let’s sort out fact from fiction about the Myers’ cocktail. Just how effective is it in boosting anti-aging and as an aid in the fight against some of today’s most challenging medical conditions, like Lyme disease and even Parkinson’s disease? Here are 4 things to know about the Myers’ cocktail.

4 Ways The Myer’s Cocktail Drip Can Help Fight Anti Aging & Chronic Disease

#1: What Exactly is the Myers’ Cocktail?

The Myers’ cocktail is a specially formulated vitamin drip. A “drip” is popular slang in both the public and medical worlds for intravenous (IV) therapy. IV therapy delivers liquid substances such as medication, hydration fluids, or –in the case of the Myers’ cocktail- vitamins directly into a vein. IV drips have been with us since the mid 19th century. But it wasn’t until the 20th century that IV drips became widely known for their potential as preventative medicine directed at anti aging and an aid in managing ongoing, chronic diseases.

The Myers’ Cocktail is comprised of a mix of medical-grade nutrients that are customized according to the medical condition being treated. Once a rising star in the early days of the preventative health movement, the Myers’ cocktail eventually faded from public consciousness. But since the increase of health-compromising, pre-packaged, and processed foods in the American home, the anti aging and disease-fighting benefits of the Myers’ cocktail have been re-discovered by doctors and patients alike.

According to Dr. Michael Janson,“Two-thirds of all meals are eaten outside the home, and nearly half of them are in fast food joints. You can’t expect this to provide all the necessary nutrients, and many studies show that it does not. A large number of people admitted to hospitals are found to have deficiencies, and the problems worsen in the hospital.”

Our appetite for fast food & sugar has risen over the decades, forcing the immune system to struggle.

Digestive troubles have increased over the decades as the nation’s appetite for fast food and sugar has risen. As intestinal and stomach disorders increase, the body’s ability to fully absorb nutrients has declined. This makes the immune system weaken more quickly as it struggles to fight off infection, bacteria, viruses, and cell mutations like cancer. Vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail aim to restore the body’s healthy, disease-fighting balance and natural anti aging qualities.

A vitamin drip directly infuses the bloodstream with a rich mélange of nutrients, ensuring that they are full absorbed at the cellular level. IV drips like the Myers’ cocktail are advocated by numerous medical experts. According to Dr. Mark Sircus:

“Nutrition and nutrient therapies are safer, cheaper and more effective than most other medical treatment. … Patients need adequate nutrition, not drugs, to recover from any illness, and sometimes they need that really fast.”

#2: The Ingredients in the Myers’ Cocktail

The types of nutrients that go into a Myers’ cocktail vary according to patient needs. The nutritional needs of someone interested in anti-aging therapy and someone who needs a disease-fighting vitamin drip can be vastly different. But some of the most frequently used vitamins and supplements include:

  • Magnesium Chloride. This supplement helps in the prevention of inflammation. It is also important in supporting a robust immune system. Magnesium chloride is also beneficial in the treatment of asthma, migraines, and high blood pressure.
  • Calcium Gluconate. This supplement helps to boost blood calcium, an essential element in building strong bones.
  • B Complex. The eight B vitamins in B complex are crucial for promoting healthy hair and skin, preventing memory loss, and managing stress.
  • Vitamin C. This vitamin has long been prized for its cancer-fighting qualities and acting as an antioxidant.

#3: The History Behind the Myers’ Cocktail

The 1960’s were tumultuous years, with traditional culture in the United States clashing with an emerging paradigm that would set the American stage for the remainder of the 20th century and into the 21st. But out of the turbulence came tremendous discoveries, particularly in the medical fields. It was against the backdrop of these times when internist Dr. John Myers began feeling the restraints of traditional reactive medicine.

Odd as it may seem today, the full impact that diet and nutrition for anti aging and the prevention of disease was only just beginning to be realized. Studies in nutrition as a serious player in the prevention of disease were just beginning to get underway. When the first community health centers in impoverished U.S. neighborhoods were opened, the results gave the medical community much to consider. The concept of disease prevention began to take root and win out over the old paradigm of addressing illness only after it has arisen.

Dr. Myers’ own studies centered on the importance of nutritional absorption.

Dr. Myers’ own studies centered on the importance of nutritional absorption into the body’s circulatory system. It became clear to him that only minimal amounts of nutrients were finding their way from the digestive tract into the bloodstream. Inspiration struck. Dr. Myers mixed key vitamins and minerals and turned them into an intravenous fluid. After conducting medical tests on animals, then himself, he tested his “cocktail” on human participants. The results were nothing less than remarkable.

MYERS DIET - CIRCULATORY

The term “Myers’ cocktail” didn’t come into being until after Dr. John Myers’ death in 1984. At that time, the precise recipe for the doctor’s mixture was lost to the medical community. And so it remained a mystery until Dr. Alan Gaby meticulously experimented –vitamin by vitamin- until he came up with a formula that replicated Dr. Myers’ wonder blend.

Dr. Gaby named his development the “Myers’ cocktail” in homage to the man who started it all. In the decade following the development, Dr. Gaby oversaw more than 15,000 treatments. The doctor presented his findings at medical conferences across the U.S. In 2002, he published his medical review of the Myers’ cocktail in the Alternative Medicine Review. His review has been quoted often ever since.

Since the 1960’s the American diet has become more and more dependent on pre-packaged, fast foods.

MYERS DIET-JUNK FOODHis timing could not have been better. Since the early days of Dr. Myers original vitamin drip, the consumption of chemically laden, processed foods has risen exponentially. And it continues to do so. Since the 1960’s the American diet has become more and more dependent on pre-packaged grocery items and fast foods that are poor in nutrients and –in some cases- even interfere with the absorption of nutrients.

The Myer’s cocktail has come into its own. Because of their customizable nature, vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail have not only been used in the treatment and prevention of chronic medical conditions. The anti aging qualities of vitamin drips and injections have become enormously popular with celebrities and regular Americans alike.

#4: Medical Conditions that are Helped by Vitamin Drips

A vitamin drip like the Myers’ cocktail is exceptionally versatile. From anti aging therapy to illnesses, syndromes, and disorders that threaten or profoundly affect quality of life, vitamin drips can be customized according to the particular needs of the patient. These include:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic depression
  • Lyme disease
  • Cancer
  • Sinusitis
  • Bronchitis
  • Cold/flu
  • Immune deficiencies
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Food poisoning
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Antioxidant deficiencies
  • Anti-aging
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Narcotic withdrawal
  • Gastrointestinal trouble
  • Migraines

But drips like the Myers’ cocktail aren’t only for acute or chronic illness therapy. Vitamin drips are also beneficial as preventative therapy. These therapies include:

  • Immunity boosting for children readying for the school year
  • Preventative therapy for frequent travelers who must fly regularly during cold and flu seasons
  • Approved athletic sports performance enhancement
  • Hangover remedy

What Happens During Vitamin Drip Therapy?

Whether for anti-aging, recovering from a hangover, or treating serious illnesses, vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail are legitimate medical procedures. This means they must be performed by a qualified medical professional. Be sure to seek out licensed professionals when considering vitamin drip therapy. Regenerative medicine facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute make sure experts are on staff who are experienced in intravenous therapies like the Myers’ cocktail.

Legitimate clinics begin the therapy experience by having a staff member take the patient through a brief medical evaluation. Vitamin drips are customized right in the clinic, according to patient needs. The “cocktail” of nutrients will be administered as an intravenous drip, which is generally done via the patient’s forearm. The therapy time ranges between five and thirty minutes, depending on the condition being treated. While therapy is being administered, patients can relax and catch up on reading, close their eyes and rest, watch a video on a mobile device, or any other calm activity that can be performed in a quiet, stationary manner.

Before receiving vitamin drip therapy, it is recommended that you drink plenty of water and eat beforehand. This will help prevent feeling faint or dizzy during and after treatment.

MYERS DIET - DRINK WATER

Certain sensations during vitamin drip therapy are quite normal.

It is common for patients to experience a “flush” that begins in the chest area and travels through the body. Some patients say they feel a warming sensation in the pelvic area, while others report a metallic tang in the mouth. Still other patients say they experience heightened visual activity.

In any of these cases, the sensations are normal regardless if the drip is being administered for anti aging therapy or acute/chronic medical conditions. If at any time you’re unsure about what you’re feeling during the treatment, the medical professional who is administering the drip will be happy to address your concerns.

Vacation in a Bag!

Recipients of the Myers’ cocktail report feelings of energy, perkiness, and pain relief. Even when the therapy isn’t anti aging specific, many patients notice firmer facial tissue and a healthy glow to the skin. Patients who come away from vitamin drip therapy report feeling rested and a positive boost in mood, much like one feels after a vacation. It’s why the Myers’ Cocktail is sometimes called the “vacation-in-a-bag.”

Generally speaking, patients undergo Myers’ Cocktail treatments once weekly for a period of four weeks. Once this initial regimen is done, therapy is undergone one or two times monthly, depending on the need of the patient. Frequency varies according to the advice of the medical professional, patient needs, and the symptoms that are present.

Authentic Examples Of Vitamin Drip Results

In 2002, the Alternative Medicine Review published Dr. Alan R. Gaby’s medical review titled “Intravenous Nutrient Therapy: The ‘Myers’ Cocktail’.” In it, Dr. Gaby offered examples of results from actual case studies. Among them were:

  1. Sinusitis. A woman between 30 and 35 years of age battled chronic sinusitis for over a year. She underwent two Myers’ cocktail therapy sessions over the course of two consecutive days. As a result, her sinusitis symptoms should rapid improvement, and didn’t recur for over six months.
  2. Migraines. A middle-aged woman who suffered chronic migraine symptoms chose Myers’ Cocktail therapy after several other treatment types failed. She found the therapy so effective, she underwent seventy separate sessions over the span of six years.
  3. Flu. A collegiate wrestling athlete came down with the flu just prior to when he was slotted for a major competition. After a single Myers’ cocktail therapy session, the flu symptoms diminished. But, even more than this, the student experience a boost of energy. He competed better than in any prior wrestling tournament.

What Is In A Myers’ Cocktail?

Not all vitamin drips are created equal. The abundant blends of the Myers’ cocktail remain the preferred vitamin drips for therapies ranging from anti aging to cancer. Among the supplements and vitamins used in a Myers’ cocktail are:

B12 Complex. This B vitamin provides a rapid energy boost and is excellent for the health of the hair, skin, and nails. It is crucial in anti aging IV therapy.

High Dose Vitamin C. Medically administered high doses of vitamin C via Myers’ vitamin drips are prized for preventing stress and fatigue. This supplement is an essential therapy base for a variety of IV therapies, from anti aging to skin improvement to mega-boosting the immune system for a wide array of infectious and chronic diseases.

MYERS DIET - VITAMIN C

Glutathione. This is a prominent anti-oxidant used in the treatment of fatigue, depression, and other chronic illness symptoms.

Multi-Vitamin/Mineral IV. This is comprised of essential vitamins that literally range from A to Z. Its main purpose is to fight vitamin deficiencies.

MSM. MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. It is an amino acid administered for pain therapy.

Sodium Bicarbonate. You may already have this in the kitchen pantry in the form of baking soda. As great of a household item as it is, sodium bicarbonate’s true value is in its medically significant qualities for detoxifying, reducing inflammation, and decreasing acid reflux.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA). ALA is one of the super antioxidant found in vitamins such as C and E. It’s great for anti aging therapy, cancer IV drips, and in treating a variety of illnesses.

Know Before You Go!

Since the mid-20th century, the average U.S. diet has shifted radically from natural and unprocessed foods to high-sodium, high-salt, processed edibles that are chemically laden and nutritionally poor. Lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary. Is it any wonder that our energy stores are depleted, depression is pervasive, and recurring illness continues to plague our society?

Those who have tried vitamin drips like the Myers’ cocktail report significant improvement in energy and the ability to fight off infection. Many doctors prize it as an aid in combating many of the most challenging diseases known to medicine. And its anti aging qualities are sought after by celebrities and average Americans alike.

A vitamin drip like the Myers’ cocktail is a medical procedure that must be performed by a trained medical professional.

As mentioned previously, it’s important to keep in mind that –even as anti aging or hangover therapy- a vitamin drip like the Myers’ cocktail is medical procedure that must be performed by a trained medical professional.

Regenerative medicine facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) often incorporate IV drip procedures as crucial auxiliary treatments that compliment stem cell and/or platelet rich plasma therapies. Legitimate regenerative medicine clinics in the U.S. practice these procedures under exacting laws and guidelines.

A legitimate stem cell clinic in the U.S. is properly licensed, FDA guidelines-compliant.

While regenerative medicine clinics take a holistic approach to healthcare -such as incorporating cornerstone health care departments like nutritional counseling and functional rehabilitation into their practice- they are commonly known as, simply, stem cell clinics. And just as with any medical practice, it is imperative that a stem cell clinic is properly licensed, FDA guidelines-compliant, and staffed with experienced physicians and other medical professionals.

With that in mind, NSI offers tips below to help you ensure you’re working with an FDA guidelines-compliant regenerative medicine facility.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.

Boost Cellular Health, Slow Down Aging!

How To Boost Cellular Health And Increase Energy To Slow Down Aging

Billions of years ago, cells in your body gave in to an invasion from a group of microorganisms which were a form of bacteria. The relationship between cellular healing and these new microorganisms was not parasitic but symbiotic. The descendants of the microbes later became mitochondria: the energy producing powerhouse of the cell.

SLOW AGING - BACTERIA CELLS

As a leading regenerative medicine facility in the U.S., the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) understands the critical role that mitochondria has in cellular healing. The mitochondria play a very important function in maintaining your physical and mental health: from physical illnesses like autoimmune conditions to the neurological.

You can increase energy at the cellular level and, in turn, boost your physical strength and reduce episodes of lethargy. Boosting your health from this micro level can have a wide range of benefits that will improve your quality of life. But first, it is important to understand how the mitochondria work, and how important they are in cellular healing.

cellular healing

Understanding The Role Of The Mitochondria & Cellular Health

The mitochondrial derives its energy from a molecule commonly known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This molecule is created entirely within the mitochondria. It takes a lot of work to produce ATP as is required by the cell. To ensure that energy is supplied to the cell, a single ATP molecule will have to be recycled about a thousand times every 2 hours. That is why cellular healing is at the root of whole-body health.

Since the mitochondria evolved from independent microorganisms, it has its own unique DNA. Its DNA is more susceptible to oxidative damage than cellular DNA. This is because the biochemical processes that take place in the mitochondria produce a lot of dangerous free radicals that puts cellular health at risk.

For years scientists have worked to understand the role of mitochondria in aging.

For years scientists have been trying to understand the exact role of mitochondria in the aging process and cellular health. One theory is that an increase in the frequency of mitochondrial mutations is responsible for aging and the issues associated with it. This theory comes from the observation that as people grow older, they tend to have a higher count of mitochondria. However, this theory has never been proven conclusively.

Recent studies point to other factors that may indicate a link between mitochondria, longevity, and cellular health. These studies are revealing that this important component of the cell is not just a source of energy. It plays a critical role in maintaining the integrity of the cell. It is an agent that facilitates signaling between cells, stimulates the immune function, and modulates the production of stem cells for the regeneration of cells and tissues.

Oxidative stress can cause a lot of damage at the cellular level. Oxygen is a vital element that the mitochondria needs for the production of energy. It is used in the cell to produce adenosine triphosphate. However, because the mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell, it produces a lot of free radicals.

Free radicals cause molecules to disintegrate.

Free radicals are molecules that are missing one or more electrons. These molecules are released as a result of biochemical reactions. They are unstable and can cause a lot of damage to cellular health as they try to restore their neutrality. They cause molecules of other compounds to disintegrate.

Along their path, free radicals are known to change the composition of certain compounds. In turn, these compounds trigger reactions at the cellular level which are known to produce even more potent free radicals. This chain of reactions has an impact on cellular health through the DNA structure of the cell and, ultimately, tissues and organs.

To prevent this oxidative stress at the cellular level, it is important to take antioxidants. These are chemical compounds that can donate electrons to free radicals. However, unlike other compounds, they can provide the needed electron without turning into free radicals.

Antioxidants help prevent the growth of tumors.

Antioxidants have other important functions. They encourage cell apoptosis to prevent the growth of tumors. Some antioxidants can attach themselves to the DNA to prevent the DNA from getting involved in biochemical reactions that would cause damage to cellular health.

In order to ensure that your body is protected, there are two things you can do. One is to prevent the production of these free radicals at the cellular level. The other thing you can do is to increase the number of antioxidants in the body and to insulate your body from the free radicals. There are several ways you can protect your body from this kind of damage for cellular health, longevity, and your body’s overall health.

Better Nutrition For Cellular Healing

Whether you want to lose weight, reduce fatigue, or live longer nutrition is the most important aspect of your health that you need to focus on. Research studies health officials have often pointed out that nutrition is indeed the single most important factor. From cellular health onward, nutrition plays a key role in how we feel, how well we fight infection, injury, aging, and disease.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have found that up to half a million people are killed by poor nutrition every year. Research studies going back decades have shown that the human lifespan can be increased by a third or more by reducing calorie intake while adopting a nutrient rich diet that promotes cellular health.

Robust cellular health depends on a nutrient diet.

SLOW AGING - FISH

A nutrient rich diet is critical in boosting cellular health, the body’s ability to fight free radicals, and contain oxidative stress. A nutritious diet contains the following minerals and vitamins critical for the cellular function:

  • Vitamin B: Boosts cellular function, energy production, the development of red blood cells.
  • Riboflavin: Plays an important role in mitochondrial metabolism.
  • Manganese and Magnesium: Maintain normal function of the cells, nerves and they are also involved in numerous cellular processes.

It is therefore important to eat enough quantities of vegetables and fruits. However, other than having a nutritious diet, you also need to eat less. Consuming too much food puts a lot of strain of the mitochondria and this produces a lot more free radicals than the body can handle. It’s a prescription for jeopardizing cellular health.

It can be difficult to keep track of your calorie intake. There are things you can do to stay lean and reduce the risk of getting obesity related illnesses.

Take Alpha Lipoic Acid

One important nutrient you can add to your body is alpha lipoic acid. This is an antioxidant that is found in various foods such as meat products and common vegetables like broccoli and spinach. It is well known for its role in nerve damage repair, and studies suggest that it can be effective in dealing with type 2 diabetes.

The alpha lipoic acid can help to improve cellular health. It plays a critical role in facilitating the mitochondria to break down glucose for the production of energy. The antioxidant is also quite effective in cleaning free radicals, which are produced in large quantities when the mitochondria are engaged in its various metabolic processes.

Alpha lipoic acid has the unique ability to maintain its oxidative function.

Alpha lipoic acid is one of the most powerful antioxidants. It has the unique ability to maintain its oxidative function once it loses an electron. Most of the antioxidants are incapable of doing this unless they are replenished by an external compound that can restore them. Alpha lipoic acid can maintain its oxidative function even after losing an electron. It helps to restore spent antioxidants and increase their levels in the body, both important in cellular health.

Another important function of this compound is in helping manage type 2 diabetes. Although research on this subject is still ongoing, there is evidence to suggest that it can enhance the body’s ability to utilize insulin and thereby regulate blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a reduced capacity for the pancreas to release insulin or to utilize it in breaking down glucose.

ALA is a boon to diabetics.

ALA is also beneficial to diabetics in that its advantages for cellular health can restore nerve damage that is common with people with the condition. Its nerve and restorative qualities also make it beneficial to people with conditions such as HIV and liver disease which cause nerve and tissue damage. If you choose to take the supplement for any of these conditions, seek a doctor’s advice. Even though taking ALA supplements is known to have little or no side effects, it can have unwanted consequences for people with cardiovascular conditions.

Supplement With Coenzyme Q10

If you want to boost your energy at the cellular level, you should consider supplementing with Coenzyme Q10. This enzyme is critical for the ATP production process by the mitochondria, crucial for cellular health. It is key in the electron transport system because it can transport two electrons at the same time. For this reason, coenzyme Q10 has been referred to as the spark plug that jump starts many important biological processes for cellular health. It is found in all cells in the body, but it is often in higher quantities in organs that require more energy to perform their biochemical functions such as the liver, kidney, and heart.

CoQ10 is, therefore, one of the key compounds that can boost cellular health and energy. Small changes in the levels of CoQ10 in the body can affect organs and tissue especially those susceptible to deficiency. Humans tend to lose their ability to produce adequate quantities of the compound as they get older.

Taking Coenzyme Q10 empowers mitochondrial that has lost its capacity to perform its functions. It is the only element within the electron transport system that can be introduced in its full composition from outside the mitochondria. In the electron transport system, it acts as an agent that prevents free radicals that cause damage to the cell. It can restore spent water soluble antioxidants like Vitamin E and Vitamin C.

Carnitine

Carnitine is one of the metabolic compounds that are essential for cellular health. The compound is said to be a fuel for the cell because it provides high-octane fatty acids to certain cells in the body. Carnitine has been studied since the turn of the twentieth century, and research shows that it can be useful in addressing serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and in boosting brain function.

It has been found that, when used with R-lipoic acid, carnatine can restore the function of mitochondria.

Carnitine plays an important role in anti-aging. When used with R-lipoic acid it has been found that it can restore the function of mitochondria to be as effective as that of young cells. The two compounds, when used together, have also been shown to be beneficial to the cells of young animals. Taking the supplements beginning early in life could boost cellular health and slow down the aging process.

The compound helps to repair damaged cells and the cell membrane. It clears up lipofuscin, which is a pigmentation left after the breakdown of damaged lipids. The pigmentation is believed to be one of the main indicators of aging and poor cellular health. Signs of lipofuscin can be seen in the retina, muscles, heart, and liver of aging animals and humans.

Along with cellular health, another important function of carnitine is that it can boost immune function. It enhances the function of a certain type of white blood cell called the macrophage to function like a phagocyte. That means that the compound boosts the immune system’s ability to engulf and destroy pathogens as well as prevent cell apoptosis.

Carnitine has proven to be effective in restoring cognitive ability and brain function in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

The ability of carnitine to regenerate cells, tissue, and restore the energy levels at the cellular level has made it beneficial in the treatment of certain diseases. For example, for people with Alzheimer’s it has proven to be effective in restoring cognitive ability and brain function to a significant degree. It can also help people with other conditions such as kidney failure, ALS, and Parkinson’s.

The best food source for carnitine is lean meat. It contains a much higher quantity of the compound than other types of meat. However, consuming red meat on a daily basis is not advisable. Experts suggest limiting weekly lean meat intake to 3 ounces per week. Other great food sources of the compound include fish, chicken, and pork.

Ginseng

Ginseng is an adaptogen herb that can help boost cellular health. An adaptogen is an agent that neutralizes, physical, emotional, and external stressors. It is an herb that has been highly valued for thousands of years. In ancient China, it was considered to be more valuable than gold. The word Panax comes from a Greek word which loosely translates to “all curing”.

The active compounds responsible for Ginseng’s beneficial effects are known as ginsenosides. There are more than 50 ginsenosides that have been isolated by scientists. They have a diverse biochemical structure which is believed to be one of the reasons that ginseng is beneficial to cellular health, allowing it to be beneficial to people with diabetes, cancer, and various types of inflammation.

Ginseng’s anti carcinogenic effect helps prevent stomach cancer.

Ginseng has an anti carcinogenic effect and research shows it has the ability to prevent cancer of the stomach, liver, and pancreas. Scientists have isolated ginsenosides Rg(3), Rg(5), and Rh(2) which are found in red ginseng. It has been identified as a safe biochemical agent with no negative side effects to cellular health. Ginseng can help prevent various types of tumors from developing.

Ginsenosides help to boost the immune system and prevent inflammation. These compounds help to regulate cytokine levels in the body. Cytokines are a group of proteins that act as a signal for the immune system and also control inflammation and hematopoiesis. Cytokines are esssential for cellular health. One animal study showed that the compounds found in ginseng encouraged a positive immune response for subjects with a lung infection.

Ginseng has been shown to be effective in preventing common colds.

A daily dosage of ginseng has been shown to be effective in preventing common colds when tested against a placebo. This speaks of the ability of the ginsenosides to affect cellular health by modulating and boosting the capacity of the immune system to fight external threats. It can be taken as a supplement to help prevent cell damage and promote overall health and well being.

Curcumin

Turmeric is perhaps well known as a spice and coloring agent. However, the plant’s medicinal properties have been recognized for more than 6000 years. The plant has a group of compounds referred to as curcumin which can suppress symptoms of serious conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s and even liver fibrosis.

SLOW AGING - TURMERIC

Regarding cellular health, scientists believe that curcumin’s medicinal properties are due its exceptional ability to fight inflammation in the body. Years of research shows that the compound is capable of relieving the body’s oxidative stress produced by various biochemical processes.

Curcumin helps prevent damage to cell lipids.

Curcumin is capable of preventing the damage of cell lipids due to oxidation. This, in turn, prevents the cell from falling apart as a result of irreparable damage to its membrane. Besides playing the role of building cell membranes and storing energy, lipids act as chemical messengers between cells.

By preventing lipid peroxidation it helps to encourage cellular health via chemical signals that promote cells to take action against neurodegenerative diseases. Its ability to prevent degeneration of lipids is also believed to be the reason curcumin has shown to be capable of stopping tumor growth.

Curcumin promotes apoptosis which is the natural death of damaged cells in the body. Without apoptosis, damaged cells would accumulate in the body and cause further damage to cellular health, which can trigger a cancerous tumor.

Exercise

Exercise has been one of the things that doctors and health practitioners have consistently promoted as an answer to overall well-being and cellular health. It is one of the habits we are encouraged to adopt to keep cancer and serious cardiovascular conditions at bay. Exercise can significantly improve cognitive function, and prevent the degeneration of muscle and tissue that comes with age.

The reason why exercise seems to have so many benefits may be due to its positive effects on cellular health. It boosts the production of important proteins that are needed by the mitochondria. Exercise can prevent cell damage due to aging. Scientists have found that interval training has the greatest impact when it comes to boosting cellular function. Interval training involves doing short intervals of intensive workouts in between the normal workout routine.

SLOW AGING - FITNESS CLASS

FAQ About A Ketogenic Diet For Women

Is A Ketogenic Diet For Women’s Health The Right Choice?

The ketogenic diet is no longer thought of as just a “fad diet.” A ketogenic diet for the management of many health issues -from diabetes, to weight management, and for women’s health- is becoming a regular part of medical practice and nutritional counseling. In one form or another, and by one name or another, the keto diet has been recommended by physicians and other medical professionals since the 1920’s. Not only to address weight control, but to augment treatment of patients with serious illnesses. Continue reading “FAQ About A Ketogenic Diet For Women”

10 Foods To Increase Libido In Men And Women

Studies tell us that 32% of women suffer from loss of libido, while 15% of men report lack of sexual desire. But that’s not to say that sexual dysfunction and low testosterone isn’t something that both sexes struggle with as we reach middle age and older.

While lack of libido is more frequent as we enter our 30’s, it can happen to both men and women at any age. Drops in testosterone in men and women alike can often be at the root. But it can occur due to many other reasons, as well. These include:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Prescription medications
  • Unhealthy weight
  • Lack of exercise
  • Drug or alcohol abuse

So, if you’ve been struggling with low or no sex drive, you can see that you’re not alone. And it’s no wonder that the market is awash with medications and pseudo-medications that claim to boost libido.

But not all the news about low libido is so dire or so sketchy. According to the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI), the number of patients stepping up to address their own lack of sexual desire is increasing as the stigma surrounding poor libido fades. As news grows about authentically effective regenerative medicine techniques the help in reclaiming more youthful energy and sexual desire, NSI is seeing an influx of people coming forward for help.

 

Sexual dysfunction is among the most common regenerative therapies sought

The need is great. Sexual dysfunction and anti-aging are among the most common regenerative therapies sought out at NSI by patients. So an understanding of the underlying causes of low libido is more important than ever. Even more important is knowing how nutrition and lifestyle can enhance –or tank- sexual desire for either sex at any age.

Today, we know so much more about the physical and emotional workings of the libido. Advanced medical techniques like regenerative medicine now make it possible to get to the cellular core of the problem, while modern natural remedies backed by sound science provide “read deal” aids to help people be pro-active right at home through nutritional and lifestyle changes.

There are real-world ways to boost your libido through simple, thoughtful lifestyle adjustments. And you’ll find that they don’t just help you find that zest for sex that you once had. This article focuses on two specific areas: what to eat and what not to eat. You may be surprised to learn what types of food act as safe, natural aphrodisiacs and which ones have just the opposite effect.

All without resorting to radical surgeries or potentially harmful drugs. Are you ready to boost your energy, improve your sex drive, and lead a happier, healthier overall life? Then read on.

The Basics Of Libido

While the sex drive is as old as humanity, the word “libido” is only about 100 years old. Many people think the legendary psychoanalyst Sigmund Feud invented the word but, in truth, he only popularized it. In any case, libido is defined as one’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity. Low libido affects both men and women, and has similar root causes in both sexes, as well as some gender-specific ones, too.

Libido in Men

It is not at all abnormal for men to experience a gradual decrease in libido as they age. For most, sexual desire continues in one degree or another into their sixties or seventies. However, if a man’s age isn’t the reason behind his decrease in libido, several other factors may be involved including:

  • Depression
  • Too much stress
  • Side effects of medication
  • A decrease in male sex hormones like testosterone
  • Sleep apnea

When low testosterone is the culprit, a medical condition known as erectile dysfunction (ED) may occur. ED is when a man cannot achieve or maintain an erection. It is a common misconception that low testosterone, ED, and low libido are always related to each other. But the problem is far more complex than that. One does not necessarily follow the other, or even occur at the same time. In fact, men who have difficulty getting or keeping erections typically have perfectly normal or even high sex drives.

Libido in Women

As complex as men’s sex drive is, women’s sexuality is even more multifaceted and complicated. This is why, prior to the developments of regenerative medicine, medications and other interventions for low male libido have been more successful than those for women.

As with men, low women’s libido can be caused by many factors, including:

  • The state of her relationship with her sexual partner
  • Socio-cultural influences such as media images of sexuality
  • Job or domestic stress
  • Medical conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis and thyroid problems
  • Female levels of testosterone that are too low

It comes as a surprise to some people that women have the hormone testosterone. But it is as essential in women as it is in men, even though female levels are lower. As with men, testosterone in women is essential for bone strength and the development of lean muscle mass and strength. The hormone is also a factor in women’s overall sense of well-being and energy. And, again as with men, testosterone is crucial in regulating the female libido.

Testosterone levels in women crest sometime after they reach their mid twenties. A steady decrease occurs thereafter as they approach menopause. After menopause, female testosterone levels fall significantly. That means the female sex drive can dip significantly, too. But other physiological factors can affect women’s libido prior to menopause. Birth control pills and other types of hormonal pregnancy prevention frequently have the effect of depressing female sex drive.

The Two Primary Chemicals That Influence Sexual Desire

Increasing the libido depends on two key biological chemicals that can alter sex drive levels, whether for male or female. they are dopamine and prolactin. Medical experts believe that an increase in desire is influenced by dopamine, while prolactin decreases libido. Medications can interfere with these natural chemicals, increasing prolactin or inhibiting dopamine release. Whether the medication triggers an increase in prolactin or a decrease in dopamine, the effect can be a reduction in sexual desire. Medication may cause additional sexual side effects, as well.

For men, an increase in prolactin is associated with numerous indicators of poor sexual and/or psychological health. Increased prolactin levels are also linked to a greater body mass index (BMI), higher blood glucose levels, and a reduction in physical activity. Too much prolactin seems to induce overall feelings of being unhealthy.

Other factors also influence libido in both women and men. They include:

  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Prescription medications
  • Alcohol and/or drug abuse
  • Chronic diseases, such as diabetes
  • Obesity

Obesity continues to be an increasing factor in libido for men and women alike. A Duke University study has shown that obesity can raise the likelihood of sexual problems by as much as 25 times. Obese males often experience erectile dysfunction. And while obesity doesn’t appear to cause clinically diagnosed female sexual dysfunction in women, it has been shown to have an impact on women’s energy levels and sexual self-perception, which can both affect libido.

The good news is that clinical studies have proven that even a small percentage of weight loss can boost sexual desire and reduce sexual dysfunction in both men and women.

The Connection Between Diet & Sexual Health

There are ways to increase libido by changing your diet. But it’s not just a matter of adding foods and supplements that aid sexual health. It’s also a matter of avoiding or at least significantly reducing food types that can drag down desire.

foods to increase libido

Foods that can Help Libido

  • Natural Aphrodisiacs

Fruits such as figs, bananas and avocados act as natural aphrodisiacs. They are packed with vitamins and minerals that promote blood flow. The increase in blood circulation includes the genitals, which can naturally boost libido.

  • Foods with Vitamin C

Vitamin C is known for improving blood circulation, as well. To optimize this benefit, it’s crucial to eat foods that are loaded with C every day. Vitamin C has been particularly linked to women’s sexual health. Excellent choices for daily consumption include broccoli, oranges, red peppers and guava.

BOOST LIBIDO 3 - ORANGE

  • Iron-rich foods

Low levels of the mineral iron are known to have a negative effect on several elements of healthy sexual reaction, especially for women. Dark leafy vegetables like spinach or kale are iron-rich, as is beef that comes from grass fed cattle.

  • Foods Rich in Collagen

Collagen is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues. As we age, production of collagen production declines. This doesn’t just cause the skin of our faces to lose firmness. It can also make it more difficult for men to maintain an erection, and can degrade the firmness of vaginal walls in women. Bone broth and vitamin C are both great natural collagen boosters. You can also purchase a collagen supplement powder.

  • Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes and yams are packed with potassium and vitamin A. Potassium helps regulate blood pressure, which can help reduce erectile dysfunction in men.

BOOST LIBIDO 4 - SWEET POTATO

  • Watermelon

Skip the Viagra, guys, and opt instead for delicious watermelon. Research has shown that watermelon may have the same affect on men as the popular but potentially risky drug. This because the juicy fruit has phytonutrients like lycopene, beta-carotene and citrulline. All of these help relax blood vessels. So watermelon can be a help the libido without adding the negative side effects associated with ED drugs.

  • Spice it up with Nutmeg and Clove

Spices like nutmeg and clove are packed with antioxidants. These are terrific for your health in general as well as for your libido. Research shows that nutmeg and clove extracts enhance the sexual behavior male laboratory animals. You get the added benefit of fighting bad breath, with clove.

  • Dark Chocolate

Research has shown time and time again that eating chocolate stimulates the release of phenylethylamine and serotonin. This release can lead to an aphrodisiac effect as well as lift one’s mood. The key to healthy chocolate consumption is moderation and choosing low sugar, high quality dark options.

  • Brazil Nuts & Almonds

Almonds and brazil nuts are selenium-rich. Selenium aids healthy testosterone levels. Almonds also have zinc, vitamin E, and healthy fats linked to improving sexual health and reproduction.

  • Water

We all know that staying hydrated is important while exercising. But did you know that dehydration can have a negative effect on libido, for both women and men? Drinking plenty of water helps reduce fatigue and headaches. In women, staying hydrated can go a long way in preventing vaginal dryness.

Now Let’s Talk About Foods to Avoid

  • Trans Fats and Fried Food

Foods that are heavy on the grease or full of trans fatty acids do not make things better in the bedroom by any estimation. Trans fats have been known to increase abnormal sperm production in men, and interfere with gestation in women.

  • Processed Food

Food that have been processed contain a cocktail of chemical, many of which may have a negative effect on libido and sexual performance for both sexes.

BOOST LIBIDO 7 - PROCESSED FOOD

  • Poor Quality Protein

Not all protein is healthy. The meat that comes from livestock that is factory-farmed is infamous for containing artificially added hormones and antibiotics. Both of these elements are strongly linked to hormonal imbalances in both women and men.

  • Food that is High in Sodium

High levels of sodium is known to contribute to high blood pressure which, in turn, can cause restriction of blood flow. Including to the genitalia. All the more reason to avoid processed and/or canned foods, which are usually loaded with sodium.

  • Conventional Dairy

Know your dairy before consuming it. All too often, milk, cheese and other dairy produced from cow’s milk have synthetic hormones. These can negatively affect the body’s own levels of estrogen and testosterone.

  • Sugar

Research has generally established that processed sugar adversely affects sex hormones. Specifically, studies point to disturbing affects on levels of testosterone. In males, consumption of sugar has been shown to decrease blood levels of testosterone by as much as 25%. While it may be tempting for men to think they’re in the clear if they aren’t diabetic, research tells us otherwise. Even the healthiest of men show decreased testosterone levels hours after consuming glucose.

BOOST LIBIDO 8 - SUGAR

  • Alcohol

It may seem that alcohol enhances libido, but in fact excessive use of alcohol does just the opposite. It can also affect arousal and sensitivity in both men and women. If you enjoy alcohol before romance, limit your consumption to one drink. That’s right: just one. Choosing a glass of red wine is your best option. Red wines like cabernet sauvignon are rich in antioxidants. They can also help widen blood vessels, which can increase blood flow to key arousal areas. But remember, when it comes to alcohol -especially in the case of your libido- there really can be too much of a good thing.

BOOST LIBIDO 5 - RED WINE

When Advanced Intervention Is Needed

Regardless of whether the person struggling with low libido is a woman or a man, there are cases in which more than sound nutrition and proper exercise will be needed. Prior to the advancements of regenerative medicine, there had been some success in treating erectile dysfunction in men.

This was usually done with drugs, while more drastic alternatives like surgically implanting penile pumps were done for men who didn’t respond well to drug therapy. But drugs lose efficacy or simply don’t work for many. And, whether drug therapy or surgical intervention was used, neither necessarily increased male libido.

For women the sheer complexity of the female sex drive had stumped the medical community for decades, when it came to successful drug intervention. Today, however, advances made through regenerative medicine techniques are changing all that.

Regenerative methods like adult stem cell therapy have made impressive strides in the field of sexually-related medicine.

Regenerative methods like adult stem cell therapy, in which a patient’s own stem cells are stimulated into action, have made impressive strides in the field of sexually-related medicine. This line of therapy works within the patient to naturally stimulate hormone levels to boost libido, repair any damage from injury or disease that may be causing sexual dysfunction, and significantly improve one’s overall energy and sense of well-being. Stem cell therapy has been shown to successfully improve libido in both men and women, regardless of the underlying causes of suppressed desire or dysfunction.

This is possible because today’s regenerative medicine techniques work on a cellular level to directly address the reasons for the symptoms of sexual dysfunction and low libido. It is well established after decades of study, as well as practical daily clinical application, that using the patient’s own stem cells in therapy holds no risk of rejection and is a safe, effective method for both men and women.

It is, however, crucial to remember that stem cell therapy –like any medical procedure- must be practiced by a licensed medical provider. The best facilities will use adipose-derived stem cells (stem cells derived from a small sample of the patient’s fat). Those practicing the most advanced techniques will provide therapy as an outpatient procedure that requires little or no post-recovery.

Legitimate, licensed stem cell facilities will strictly follow FDA guidelines and only experienced medical professionals will perform the procedure. And they will be fully integrated facilities that encompass not just regenerative medicine techniques, but take a whole-body approach through nutritional counseling and functional rehabilitation tailored to as each patient’s individual health needs.

Unlike ten years ago, today low libido and sexual dysfunction is far less likely to be something men and women must just “learn to live with.” Between better nutritional awareness, understanding the importance of adequate physical exercise, and the direction of modern medicine poor libido due to aging, disease, or injury is swiftly receding into history!

Today’s Top Anti Aging Techniques

Today’s Top Ways To Make Anti Aging A Natural Part Of Your Life!

It happens to us all. It’s a natural process. We all get older and our bodies go through changes. We can’t stop the clock from ticking, but we can do something about the pre-mature aging that occurs both externally and internally. We can actually work toward anti aging, pushing back against the complex biological functions that hasten aging, such as a process known as glycation (where sugar molecules bond with protein or lipid molecules without the regulatory effects of enzymes) and the hyper oxidation of cells.

That’s right. Today’s anti aging techniques work on a cellular level and offer results like never before seen in history. From foods, to herbs, to supplements, and beyond to the most advanced anti aging techniques coming out of regenerative medicine, anti aging in the 21st century is keeping us healthier, more energetic, sexier, and younger looking. And all without the need for invasive plastic surgery. We may not yet be able to stop the clock of aging but we are, right here and now, slowing its progress.

A war on aging that is taking place on several fronts

So, how is this being done? It’s a war on aging that is taking place on several fronts, not the least of these being the latest advances in adult stem cell therapy. The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) reports that anti aging therapies are among the most popular regenerative medicine methods requested. But stem cell therapy is just one piece of a comprehensive plan that takes a holistic approach to anti aging.

In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at the primary elements that comprise today’s multi-level approach to anti aging.

The Fundamentals Of Aging And Anti Aging

Many things are behind the speeding up of the aging process. But chief among them is excess sugar, elevated levels of stress, and toxicity that is, essentially, everywhere. Have you ever noticed how some people look 20 years older than they should while others look 20 years younger? Which would you prefer to be?

This explores what to do to support anti aging and how to be on the lookout for the factors that cause premature aging, inwardly as well as out. In some cases, it’s just a matter of eating right. In others, it’s a matter of putting your own cells to work for you. In all cases, you’ll be amazed how much of what’s behind anti aging is in your control.

Foods That Promote Anti Aging

Want to slow down your personal aging process? One of the best places to start is you’re eating habits. Certain nutrients are essential to have on a daily basis to act as your anti aging allies. These include antioxidants, healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are naturally occurring chemicals that help protect plants from germs, fungi, insects, and other threats. Fruits and vegetables have phytonutrients, as do some other plant-based food like whole grains.

Chief among these important nutritional elements are antioxidants. According to Lauri Wright, Ph.D., R.D., L.D., assistant professor at the University of South Florida, “Antioxidants are compounds found in food that stop or delay damage to the cells.”

foods for antiaging

Antioxidants help prevent or even stop cell damage

Antioxidants are naturally occurring compounds within foods like veggies, fruit, even coffee, wine, and chocolate. They’re called antioxidants because they help to prevent or even stop cell damage caused by molecules known as free radicals, or oxidants. Hence, they’re called antioxidants. And antioxidants are an important element in anti aging.

Foods that are rich in antioxidants include:Antioxidant rich teas

Many teas are packed with this anti aging compound. Among them are green, white, oolong, rooibos, and black teas. The antioxidants in teas are known as polyphenols, and they are mighty indeed as protectors against free radical damage.

  1. Wild caught fish

Fish is an anti aging food on a couple of levels. It has anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats that help tap the brakes on the aging process. But fish that are wild, not farm raised, are particularly rich in anti aging omega-3 fats as well antioxidants. Among the richest are:

  • Wild Alaskan salmon
  • Lake trout
  • Herring
  • Albacore tuna
  • Halibut
  • River trout
  • Catfish
  • Cod
  • Snapper
  1. Green leafy vegetables

It’s important to find a way to add green leafy veggies to your anti aging diet daily. There are plenty to choose from, but particularly rich in antioxidants are:

  • Kale
  • Swiss chard
  • Beet greens
  • Spinach
  • Spirulina

They all provide nutrients crucial in supporting the health of your bones and eyes. They even help in the prevention of cancer. But spirulina -which is a flowing, bright green sea vegetable- is especially rich in anti aging compounds like polythenols.

green leafy vegetables

  1. Berries

Berries of almost any kind are chalk full of antioxidants called anthocyanins. These help anti aging by maintaining muscle. And it’s believed now that berries are also cancer fighters.

  1. Herbs

No matter your food preferences, you’re bound to find at least a few herbs that make your meals more interesting. And many herbs are natural allies in anti aging. Two particularly good ones are turmeric and garlic. Both have anti-oxidants and purifying nutrients fight aging.

Beware Of These Foods That Help Age You Faster

  1. Refined sugar

Yes, tasty though it is, refined sugar is still a nutritional nightmare. Refined sugar is a major player in a process known as glycation, which damages cells and wrinkles the skin. It is the number 1 food that spurs premature aging.

avoid sugar for antiaging

  1. Unsprouted grains

Grains that are not allowed to sprout before being used in food products have quite a different effect than whole grains. Unsprouted grains commonly promote the body’s inflammatory response and, like refined sugar, can support glycation.

  1. Trans fats and hydrogenated oils

Trans fats raise LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels and lower HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Like refined sugar, trans fats and hydrogenated oils may make your taste buds swoon, but they can also make you weak with heart disease. These unhealthy fats encourage cellular inflammation, one of the culprits that are involved in premature aging, heart problems, and several kinds of cancer.

  1. Alcohol

It is true that red wine, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, has a powerful antioxidant called resveratrol. And a glass of red wine from time to time has been shown to have anti aging benefits. But there is such a thing as “too much of a good thing” when it comes to red wine, and alcohol in general.

After all, most of us don’t really have “just a little wine from time to time.” It doesn’t take much more than that to turn a potentially good thing into just the opposite. Alcohol promotes cellular inflammation and accelerates the aging process.

  1. Artificial sweetener/other artificial additives

The amount of chemicals that are in artificial sweeteners and other artificial additives are too numerous to list here. But the majority of them have this in common: they can accelerate aging. Every time you add an artificial sweetener to your tea or coffee, you are doing just the opposite of promoting anti aging.

Add These Five Anti Aging Supplements To Your Diet

1 Omega-3 fats

Using a fish oil supplement daily is a great way to promote anti aging. EPA and DHA in omega-3 deliver a powerful one-two punch to inflammation and age-related cell damage. 1000 mg a day should do the trick.

2 Green super-food powders

Don’t much like fruit or green leafy veggies? A green super-food powder can get you the best anti aging benefits from both food groups. Green super-food powders are made from fruits and dark green veggies, and contain an abundance of anti aging minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

They are also chalk full of Vitamins K, C, E and B vitamin, and crucial fatty acids. Minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids? That’s an anti aging trifecta!

3 Resveratrol

There’s our old friend resveratrol, again. Only, this time, it’s in supplement form, a much healthier way to get it. A daily dose between 250-500 mg a day does nicely as an anti aging supplement.

4 Adaptogen

Adaptogens are natural substances that help the body adapt to stress. They exert a normalizing effect upon our bodily processes. Adaptogens are best ingested in herb or herb supplement forms. These include:

  • Ginseng
  • Ashwagandha
  • Rhodiola
  • Holy Basil

Among the ways that adaptogens work as anti aging agents is by lowering cortisol levels and reducing the damaging effects that stress has on the body. The recommended daily dose is 500 to 1000 mg a day.

5 Co-enzyme Q10

Also known as CoQ10, this is a potent antioxidant that supports healthy heart function. The body’s cells need CoQ10 in order to produce energy, an essential element in any anti aging regimen. Use 50 mg twice a day.

Healthy Lifestyle Habits That Promote Anti Aging

  1. Sleep

Too long overlooked as an absolute for overall health, adequate and quality sleep has finally been recognized for its value in both longevity and anti aging. In fact, taking your sleep seriously is one of the best ways to from both looking and feeling old beyond your years.

Everyone’s sleep needs vary. But, on average, most people require no less than eight hours of quality sleep. Making sure your room is cool and dark will go a long way in making sure it happens.

sleep for anti aging

  1. Exercise

To make exercise part of your anti aging regimen doesn’t mean you have to work out like a pro athlete, if you don’t want to. Moderate exercise will get you noticeable anti aging qualities, both inside and out.

Physical activity promotes youthfulness. It keeps joints lubricated and supple, helps the body detoxify, keeps the heart and blood vessels healthy, and improves lean muscle mass. And there’s another, vital anti aging quality that exercise promotes: resistance to injury.

These Oils Are “Essential” To Anti-Aging

By now you’ve probably heard a lot about essential oils. These oils derived from herbs and other plant life are anti aging powerhouses. Packed with antioxidants, essential oils also have natural compounds that balance hormones and reduce cellular damage.

Essential oils that are particular good for anti aging include:

  • Frankincense
  • Lavender
  • Myrrh
  • Sandalwood

Mixing two drops of any of these with water once a day works great for anti aging.

Science, Naturally!

One of the greatest advances in medical science today is the development of regenerative medicine. From injuries to illnesses to chronic conditions, regenerative medicine techniques like adult stem cell procedures is revolutionizing the way medicine is practiced. It turns out that regenerative medicine methods are also highly valued for their anti aging abilities.

There is much more to aging than wrinkles, loose skin, and age spots. Aging is cell deep. It happens because the body becomes increasingly damaged as the years go by. Life itself is to blame: normal wear and tear, exposure to unhealthy environments, and genetics are just a few of the reasons for aging.

Before the development of regenerative medicine techniques, there was little science could do

As we age, our cells don’t regenerate as quickly or as abundantly as when we’re young. So the signs of aging appear. Before the development of regenerative medicine techniques, there was little science could do. Of course, there is cosmetic surgery to help delay the outward appearance of aging. But plastic surgery and chemical peels can do nothing about the fundamental causes of aging.

Regenerative medicine, however, uses the body’s own healing and rejuvenation abilities through stem cell and/or platelet rich plasma therapy. Stem cell and related therapies have been shown to not just improve the outward effects of aging, but to help slow down or, in some cases, even reverse the aging process.

Stem cells act as anti aging agents

The stem cell is a unique element in our bodies that can repair damaged organs, tissues, and cells. Stem cells act as anti aging agents at the cellular level; from the inside out. Stem cell therapy is one of the most focused-on discoveries of modern medicine.

Anti aging stem cell therapy significantly improves organ and cell strength. That’s why those who have the therapy are more than simply younger looking. They feel stronger and healthier, too. Regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity, stem cell therapy is a successful procedure for virtually anyone.

It is, however, important to go with a legitimate, licensed stem cell clinic. Stem cell therapy using adipose (fat derived) adult stem cells is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that is done in a matter of a few hours. But like all medical procedures, stem cell therapy should be taken seriously and performed only by professional physicians.

Below, the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) offers tips on how to make sure you’re going to a licensed, FDA guidelines-compliant stem cell facility.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

5 Ways Stem Cells For Anti Aging Treatment Works

For thousands of years, history has been littered with myths and false methods for stopping the clock of aging. The legendary queen Cleopatra bathed in sour milk as an anti aging treatment. Still others relied on weird applications of animal organs. But it is safe to say that real strides were not made until about 110 years ago, when cosmetic surgery as we know it was first developed. Still, to this day, invasive plastic surgery remains risky, expensive, and far from perfect.

Today, more and more people are turning to stem cell therapy as the ultimate anti-aging treatment, and many physicians say there’s a good reason. Unlike plastic surgery, stem cells rejuvenate from within and address much more than the outward effects of aging. Countless studies have shown that stem cells replace, re-grow, and repair on a cellular level that goes far beyond simply “looking good.” They can also return more youthful levels of energy and resolve age-related conditions like hair loss, osteoarthritis, and more.

Stem cell anti aging treatment is more than skin deep

stem cell therapyThe basics are, in many ways, quite simple. Plastic surgery can temporarily reduce the outward appearance of aging. But it cannot address the core causes that make us age. Cosmetic surgery can’t restore energy levels or relieve the aches, pains, and degenerative effects of aging. Stem cells, however, aren’t simply skin deep. As an anti aging treatment, they literally combat the aging process from the cellular –even the molecular- level all through the body. And they do all this without invasive, painful surgery or the need for recovery periods of any length of time.

The effects of anti aging treatment with stem cells can include:

  • A More Even Skin Tone
  • Reduction of Age Spots
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • Improved Muscular Strength
  • The Slowing of the Effects of Degenerative Diseases

So, how exactly does stem cell anti aging treatment do all this, and more? There are five essential ways. The National Stem Cell Institute, a leading U.S. medical clinic in stem cell therapy technology, goes over all of them, and explains how anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy is performed.

5 Ways Stem Cell Anti Aging Treatment Works

 

  1. Increasing The Body’s Stem Cell Count

Stem cells remain in the body throughout life. In fact, our bodies depend on these “adult” stem cells in order to keep us healthy and to repair damage of any kind, whether from injury, illness, or neurological conditions. Discovering that adult stem cells are so critical to health and disease prevention is counted as one of the most important health discoveries of modern medicine. From this discovery has sprung a golden age of stem cell therapy developments; among them, anti aging treatment.

All adult stem cells originate in bone marrow. As we age, the production of stem cells begins to decline. The result is aging, age-related diseases and disorders, and a slowing in the body’s ability to heal after an injury or during illness. No amount of cosmetic surgery can be effective anti aging treatment for these.

Declining levels of stem cells affect the skin’s ability to remain elastic and repair environmental damage

Declining levels of adult stem cells mean damage can be essentially left un-repaired almost anywhere in or on the body. The older we get, the more our body’s defenses must decide where to use its dwindling resources. This means that repairing the effects of aging to the skin or hair line will gradually take a back seat to more pressing health matters. Anti aging treatment studies show that adult stem cell releases from the bone marrow drops at significant rates as we grow older.

  • At thirty-five years of age, stem cell release drops by forty-five percent
  • At fifty years of age, stem cell release drops by fifty percent
  • At sixty-five years of age, stem cell release drops by ninety percent

This means that, by the age of sixty-five, only ten percent of the body’s stem cells are circulating through the blood. Compare these percentages to that of infants, whose stem cell circulation rate is 100%.

Stem cell therapy as an anti aging treatment helps to increase the levels of stem cells circulating through the bloodstream. By harvesting the cells from an easily accessed source –the fatty layer that lies just beneath the skin- a person’s own stem cells can be concentrated and released back into the bloodstream. There, the cells can resume fighting the root causes of low energy levels, the degenerative conditions related to aging, and restore the skin’s natural hydrating and regenerative abilities that give it the glow, elasticity, and firmness of youth.

FACE

  1. Repairing The Damage Of Skin Due To Aging

With a greater number of adult stem cells circulating through the bloodstream, every organ in the body can more effectively fight the effects of disease and aging. Since the skin is the body’s largest organ it, too, is profoundly affected by the boost in stem cell circulation. Anti aging treatment via stem cell therapy results in the improvement of:

  • The skin’s elasticity and tightness
  • The reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • The evening of skin tone through lightening and clarifying
  • The reduction of sun damage
  • The reduction of the effects of environmental pollution
  • Increase of skin cell longevity
  • Promotion of healthy skin radiance
  1. Repairing The Damage To Hair Follicles

There are a number of reasons why people lose their hair, from genetics to disease to environmental elements. In regard to age-related hair loss, both hair and scalp cells begin to deteriorate as we grow older. The thicker, longer hair of youth is replaced with the soft, white fuzzy hair so often associated with age. This happens to men and women alike. It’s caused by stem cells of the hair follicles falling dormant. Without proper signals from the surrounding area, the cells cannot begin to regenerate and continue to grow the thicker hair associated with youth. Stem cell therapy for hair loss in relation to anti aging treatment “jumpstarts” hair production.

HAIR LOSS

An infusion of stem cells restores signaling

When anti aging treatment includes stem cell therapy for hair loss, the infusion of stem cells restores those lost signals that cause hair growth. The fresh stem cells stimulate those that are already within –but are lying dormant- in the hair follicle. This causes the dormant cells to “wake up” and chemically signal hair growth. The fresh stem cells also construct and help to underpin the hair follicle papilla, which is the base of the follicle bulb. Comprised of connective tissue and capillary loops, the follicle bulb is an essential part of healthy hair. The result is ongoing, long term, permanent hair regeneration.

  1. Repairing The Internal Damage Of Aging

Stem cells are the building blocks from which all repair, regeneration, and healing of the body arise. When adult stem cells flow abundantly through the bloodstream, they reach every organ and become whatever type of cell is needed to maintain the health of each one. A higher rate of stem cell circulation goes beyond the improvement of external signs of aging. Anti aging treatment thought stem cell therapy permeates deeply and throughout the body. Among the areas potentially addressed through stem cell anti aging treatment are:

  • Adrenal Glands
  • Appendix
  • Bladder
  • Brain
  • Eyes
  • Gall Bladder
  • Heart
  • Intestines
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Lungs
  • Esophagus
  • Pancreas
  • Pituitary Gland
  • Prostate
  • Skin
  • Stomach
  • Thymus
  • Thyroid
  • Veins and Other Blood Vessels

Not surprisingly, then, stem cell therapy can go beyond anti aging treatment even when the intention is mostly to address the external affects of growing old. Among the age-related diseases and chronic conditions that stem cell therapy treats are:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD)
  • Joint Pain
  • Neuropathy
  1. Restoring More Youthful Energy Levels

Anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy can ultimately result in far more than external improvement in skin quality and fuller hair. Since stem cells address a wide array of underlying conditions related to age, including the restoration of organ functions, energy levels are known to increase as tissues are repaired and inflammation from the cellular level on up is dramatically decreased.

A number of age-related conditions can rob people of energy. Among them are:

  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kidney Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Lung Related Diseases
  • Circulatory Conditions

Certainly, part of the reason stem cell therapy helps restore energy levels is because the relief of chronic symptoms, like pain, makes people feel better. But the repair of damaged organs means healthy tissue replaces that which is unhealthy. When that happens, fuller function is restored. Just as when an automobile performs better and with more pep after proper repairs are done so, too, does the body produce more energy and stamina when its organs, blood vessels, and central nervous system are all operating at optimum levels.

Breaking Down How Stem Cell Therapy Works As An Anti Aging Treatment

So, what are the exact mechanics that allow anti aging treatment through stem cell therapy to lead to optimal health? As mentioned above, stem cells are the building blocks from which all repair, regeneration, and healing of the body arise. Every cell of the body “stems” from them. Hence, the name “stem cell.”

INTERNAL DAMAGE REPAIRED

Packets of pure potential

Stem cells are packets of pure potential. The most commonly used stem cells in today’s regenerative medicine are mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Originating in bone marrow, MSCs await signals from the body and brain to travel to whatever area is in need of development, repair, regeneration, or healing. In all stem cell therapies, whether for anti aging treatment or other types, adult stem cells are either multipotent or pluripotent. Those that are pluripotent have the most potential to “shape shift” into the many types of cells of the body, including:

  • Bone
  • Muscle
  • Cartilage
  • Brain
  • Neurons
  • Blood
  • Tendon
  • Nerve
  • Skin
  • Organ
  • Gland

When the population of circulating MSCs is plentiful, this microscopic but mighty army is able to reach a variety of organs and turn into the cells needed by the body to replace damaged, worn, or diseased cells. The influx of fresh tissue helps the organs recover and sustain optimal vigor. In the case of anti aging treatment, this includes restored health to skin cells. Youthful glow and suppleness, among other benefits, is returned to the skin.

Current studies indicate that the amount of stem cells that circulate through the bloodstream is a primary factor in all health and healing. So the greater the population of circulating MSCs, the greater is the ability of the body to heal. A substantial collection of scientific evidence has been established over the decades that overwhelmingly supports today’s developments in regenerative medicine methods, including anti aging treatment.

Great strides in stem cell therapy were made prior to their use as an anti aging treatment

MSCs have been in use in the United States for many years now. Treatments for a wide range of diseases, injuries, and chronic disorders are well established, with more being developed on a continuing basis. Adult stem cells are showing impressive results in the fight against several cancer types. And the National Stem Cell Institute practices regenerative medicine in combating diseases like multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, diabetes, and more. Anti aging treatment is a natural addition to these stem cell therapy methods.

How Stem Cell Anti Aging Treatment Is Performed

Reputable stem cell clinics in the United States work exclusively under FDA guidelines. These guidelines stipulate that therapies like anti aging treatment involve only minimal manipulation of the MSCs. The stem cells must also be the patient’s own, and must be immediately delivered back to the patient after the clinical processing is complete.

Thanks to the discovery of vast stores of pluripotent MSCs within the fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin, remarkable advances have been made that have enabled stem cell therapies to develop exponentially while remaining FDA guidelines-compliant. Among these are anti aging treatment stem cell techniques.

Stem cell anti aging treatment is an out-patient procedure with no post-procedure downtime

The discovery that the fatty tissue just beneath the skin holds an abundance of pluripotent MSCs has made stem cell therapies of many kinds possible, including anti aging treatment. This fatty layer is known as adipose fat, and it is easily accessible through minimally invasive means. The MSCs from this source are known as adipose-derived stem cells. A small sample is usually harvested from the patient’s thigh, buttock, or abdomen. Since the sample isn’t large, only a local anesthesia is needed at the site of harvesting.

While this technique for straightforwardly harvesting adipose-derived MSCs is a boon to patient and physician alike, the ease of this minimally invasive procedure is not the primary reason that these specific stem cells are preferred in regenerative medicine. Adipose-derived stem cells are prized for their exceptional potency. This makes them a superior choice for a wide variety of stem cell treatment procedures, not the least of these being anti aging treatment.

The procedure is not only minimally invasive, but straight-forward

Anti aging treatment begins with the harvesting of the adipose tissue. The small sample then goes through a process known as centrifugation. This separates the MSCs from the other components of the adipose tissue. At the end of the process, the stem cells are highly concentrated. This concentrate is the basis of a serum that is injected back into the patient as soon as the MSCs are processed.

CENTRIFUGATION

The full procedure, from harvesting to injection, is complete in a matter of a few hours. There is no concern for rejection because the MSCs are the patient’s own. Unlike plastic surgery, there is no post-procedure downtime or need for an extended healing period after anti aging treatment with stem cells. Patients may return home and take up their normal activities immediately after leaving the clinic.

There is rarely a need for any pain medication following the procedure. If there is any, it is generally reported as mild to moderate discomfort at the site where the cells were harvested. An over the counter medication such as Tylenol is usually all that is needed.

Anti aging treatment infuses the body with a fresh supply of pluripotent MSCs which go to work repairing and rejuvenating all organs, including the skin. Internal effects can include:

  • Reduction in Fatigue
  • Improved Muscular Strength
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • A Demonstrable Uptick in Mood and Mental Acuity
  • Reduction in joint and bone stiffness and pain
  • The Slowing of the Effects of Degenerative Diseases

External effects can include:

  • A More Even Skin Tone
  • Reduction of Age Spots
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Over-all Firmer, Younger Appearance
  • A Happier, Healthier Outlook on Life

As we age, everything breaks down. Prior to the development of regenerative medicine, little could be done to slow the effects of aging. Cosmetic procedures –from abrasive chemical peels to major surgical procedures- offer the outward appearance of youth, but they can be highly invasive, frequently risky, and often require long periods of painful recovery. More than this, cosmetic procedures of any kind –no matter how minimally performed- cannot address the core elements that really make us feel old.

The advent of regenerative medicine has already begun changing the future of modern medicine. It comes as no surprise that this remarkable sea change is shifting anti aging treatment away from the merely superficial to the far more holistic approach of addressing whole body health through stem cell therapy.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

Top 16 Anti-Inflammatory Foods to Promote Health and Wellness

Even with modern advancements in medicine, there seems to be a rise in the number of people affected by arthritis, heart disease, asthma, cancer, amongst others. Many scientists acknowledge that these diseases affect the general population to a higher degree than it did decades ago. According to WHO (World Health Organization), noncommunicable diseases is the leading cause of death for people around the world.

WHO has named poor diet, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption as some of the main factors that have led to the higher incidences of these diseases. While you are advised to quit smoking and drinking, there hasn’t been a lot of focus placed on providing information on the kind of foods that they should be taking. In particular, the power of anti-inflammatory foods in transforming one’s health has grossly been underrated.

What Is The Role Of Inflammation In The Body?

Even though there are many diseases caused by inflammation, inflammation is actually an important bodily function. It is an important part of the body’s immune response. It helps the body get rid of damaged cells, harmful stimuli, irritants, and pathogens.

When these harmful elements and irritants are detected, white cells and other important substances are deployed to that part of the body. Blood flow may increase in the area to ensure hormones, white blood cells, and nutrients are delivered to the affected area. As a result, you may notice redness and swelling. Without inflammation, wounds would become septic and infections would be difficult to contain.

However, inflammation is not always beneficial to the body. Science tells us that it is the root cause of many common diseases. Inflammation can generally be categorized into two; Acute and chronic.

  • Acute: Inflammation progresses rapidly and may quickly become severe. It may clear within a few days or may extend to a few weeks.
  • Chronic: Chronic inflammation is long-term and can last for months and even years. It often happens when the immune system cannot get rid of the irritant, when the irritant persists at low levels in the body, or when the immune system begins to attack tissues in the body.

Acute inflammation may cause flu, sore throat, tonsillitis and bronchitis. Chronic inflammation may be responsible for even more serious conditions such as arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, and chronic active hepatitis amongst other diseases. An autoimmune disorder happens when the body decides to reject its own cells and tissues. Some of the more common immune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, vitiligo, and systemic lupus erythematosus. For diseases that are not autoimmune, the body responds to pathogens and irritants, but in a way that is not properly controlled and regulated. Some of the diseases that are not autoimmune may include tonsillitis and asthma.

Scientists and medical practitioners acknowledge that nutrition can help manage and even cure most of these diseases. However, some studies show that dietary recommendations by medical practitioners are still underdeveloped. This happens even after the patients request dietary recommendations from their doctors.

What Can An Anti-Inflammatory Food Diet Do?

One of the best ways to combat inflammation and the diseases that come with it is through diet. It has been noted that some of the foods that cause inflammation also cause heart disease and diabetes. Some of these foods include refined carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, and a number of processed foods. These foods facilitate the underlying mechanisms that trigger and sustain inflammation in the body. They also limit the body’s ability to control infections, contain allergies and reduce the risk of cancer.

To adopt and anti-inflammatory diet, you need to avoid processed foods and start taking a well-balanced diet that contains plenty of fruits and vegetables. You will also need to avoid or reduce the consumption of red meats, processed carbohydrates, and foods with a lot of additives.

For the best results you need to consider foods with the following:

  • Antioxidants: Are known to protect cells from free radicals and reduce inflammation by reducing oxidation in the body.
  • Minerals: An important element in the regulation of inflammation.
  • Essential Fatty Acids: Fatty acids are an important part of the functional response of cells to inflammation.

Top 16 Anti-Inflammatory Foods

There are some important changes you can make to your diet to reduce your risk of succumbing to one of the diseases caused by inflammation. Taking small consistent steps is generally more realistic and easier to implement.

You can start by replacing some of the foods in your diet that will secure your body from diseases at a cellular level. Here are some of the best non-inflammatory foods you can incorporate into your diet.

best foods for inflammation

  1. Bok Choy

Bok Choy which is sometimes referred to as Chinese cabbage is one of the most nutrient-rich vegetables you can find. It has important phytonutrients that can fight inflammation in the body. It has omega 3 fatty acids which fight inflammation at the cellular level and other important substances such as alpha-linolenic acid which also helps to contain inflammation. Bok Choy has minerals that can help regulate blood pressure and has sulfur-containing compounds that can keep cancer at bay.

BOK CHOY

  1. Green Leafy Vegetables

Everyone knows that you need green leafy vegetables in your diet to stay healthy. What most people take for granted is that these vegetables contain important anti-inflammatory flavonoids and antioxidants that keep many diseases at bay. These vegetables can also help you stay healthy and help with weight loss. The U.S Department of Agriculture recommends three cups of green leafy vegetables each week.

Some of the top green leafy vegetables you should add to your diet include:

  • Kale: Rich in vitamin A, C, and K and important phytonutrients.
  • Spinach: Rich in flavonoid compounds which work together to fight cancer in the body it is also rich in vitamin A, C, and B9.
  • Swiss Chard: Rich in antioxidants and contains important nutrients that can keep coronary artery disease at bay. It is also rich in calcium and can reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES

  1. Beets

Beet is one food that can help fight inflammation at the cellular level. It is known to have the capacity to protect cells, enzymes from external stress. It contains important antioxidants that can keep diseases at bay. One of the most important antioxidant in beet, betalain gives it its signature color. It is also rich in magnesium and potassium which also help to fight inflammation in the body.

Lab studies have shown that beet is effective in lessening cell tumor growth. It does this by inhibiting enzymes that facilitate inflammation in the colon, lung, breast, and testicular tissue.

BEETS

  1. Avocado

Avocado is rich in vitamins and minerals and is one of the most effective foods in containing inflammation and protecting you from a wide range of diseases. It contains monosaturated fat and helps to maintain a high ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad cholesterol. The potassium in avocados helps to uphold normal blood pressure in the body, and lutein is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It is also known to increase the bioavailability of carotenoids which also reduces the risk of getting inflammatory diseases.

  1. Broccoli

This is one of the most nutritious vegetables that you can add to your diet. Broccoli has a great reputation as an agent that can keep diseases at bay because its anti-inflammatory properties are known to be particularly potent. It contains important phytonutrients such as sulforaphane which is an anti-cancer agent that facilitates the removal of harmful carcinogens from the body. Despite its high nutrient content and its numerous health benefits, some people choose to stay away from Broccoli because it has a bland taste. However, you should try different methods of preparation to find what works best for you.

BROCCOLI

  1. Celery

Celery is one of the vegetables that is often overlooked thanks to the fact that it contains 95% water. However, not only is celery a good low-calorie vegetable you can add to your diet, but it contains important antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that can help keep diseases at bay. It helps to lower inflammation, fight bacterial infections, regulate blood pressure and check your cholesterol level.

It contains vitamin c and flavonoids in addition to other important antioxidants. Some of its additional antioxidants like psoralen are useful in protecting organs, cells, and tissues from oxidative damage.

CELERY

  1. Pineapple

Pineapple is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory fruits. It contains an enzyme bromelain which controls inflammation and has been known to help treat bruises, wounds, and cuts. The anti-inflammatory potency of bromelain is considered to be more potent than what is found in most prescription medications. The enzymes in pineapple help to facilitate the breakdown of protein.

Pineapples are nutrient rich fruits, containing Vitamin B1, Vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. Some of the phytonutrients found in pineapple can work with important elements found in medication to reduce symptoms of common diseases.

Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin c and also contain other important minerals such as potassium and calcium. They are also known to contain properties that help to reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer and other inflammatory diseases.

Sweet potatoes are also known to be very rich in beta carotene. One cup of sweet potatoes contains about three times the recommended daily intake. Beta-carotene protects the cells from damage and also plays a role in slowing down the aging process. It also contains Cyanidin which protects the gut from dangerous toxins. Thanks to these helpful substances sweet potatoes can help reduce the risk of diabetes, asthma, and arthritis.

SWEET POTATO

  1. Blueberries

Blueberries are a low-calorie food with many benefits and can protect from diseases like dementia and cancer. It is rich in phytonutrients that provide strong anti-inflammatory benefits. One important flavonoid antioxidant is quercetin.

Quercetin is one of the most abundant antioxidants in the human diet. It helps to fight the effects of aging and inflammation and to protect the cell from free radical damage. Blueberries are also rich in fiber which helps to promote gut health, reduce constipation, and control blood sugar levels by controlling the absorption of glucose in the body.

BLUEBERRIES

  1. Walnuts

Walnuts are not only nutrient rich they also contain nutrients that are difficult to find in other foods. The vitamin E in walnuts is in an unusual form. Vitamin E in the form that is present in walnuts is known to prevent the risk of heart disease. It also contains unsaturated fats which can help keep the levels of bad cholesterol down. It is also rich in fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids both of which play a role in reducing inflammatory effects in the body.

WALNUTS

  1. Salmon

Salmon is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids which help to fight inflammation at the cellular level. Eating salmons twice or thrice a week can provide the required quantities of omega 3 fatty acids. Salmon also contains bioactive peptides which control inflammation in the digestive tract and improves insulin effectiveness. Thanks to its omega 3 fatty acids and other important bioactive compounds, it can reduce the risk of cancer. Arthritis, heart diseases and also improves the brain’s memory and cognitive performance.

What to Avoid: Foods that Promote Inflammation

Scientists now acknowledge that inflammation causes a wide range of diseases. The risk of these diseases can be reduced by adopting the right diet. Even though there are a number of foods and herbs that can prevent inflammation, on the other hand, there are some foods which will promote chronic inflammation thus leaving you prone to a wide range of diseases. It is advisable to limit or eliminate altogether some of these foods from your diet.

Sugar

This is perhaps one of the biggest contributors to inflammation in modern diets. When the body cannot breakdown excess sugar, it creates room for the proliferation of compounds called cytokines. High consumption of sugar weakens the immune system and leaves you prone to diseases. Try and avoid candy, snack bars, chocolate bars and soda, all of which can have very high amounts of sugar.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
