When we think about the effects of aging, most of the time we think of the changes to our appearance, physical abilities, and cognitive functions. While these effects are the most noticeable, we don’t often think about aging at the cellular level. Cellular aging actually plays a significant role in our overall health. So, let’s take a closer look at what cellular aging is and how we can combat it (no microscope needed).
Why is cellular aging important?
Your body is made of trillions of cells, but every day your cells come under attack by many factors like diet, stress, UV rays, and toxins that can increase oxidative stress. When your cells come under attack, free radicals are formed that can damage cell components like DNA and trigger inflammatory reactions that are thought to contribute to cellular aging. Many scientists believe that this daily cellular damage may be a key factor in many types of normal age-related conditions, and the health of cells can strongly influence overall health.
How do you combat cellular aging?
Keeping your cells vital and strong is a daily task, and a good way to start is by addressing factors like diet and stress. Eating a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids and low in refined starches, sugar, and saturated and trans-fatty acids helps combat cellular aging. Lowering your stress can also help your cells and your overall wellness.
But there is a key nutrient that helps combat cellular aging: polyphenols. Polyphenols are plant-based nutrients that have antioxidant benefits and protective effects against cellular aging. They can be found in many fruits, vegetables, green and black tea, red wine, coffee, chocolate, and olives. But a great way to get polyphenols is to supplement with Vivix®. Here’s why.
Slow Aging at the Cellular Level®*
Vivix contains a proprietary, all-natural blend of polyphenols based on the muscadine grape, one of nature’s rarest, most potent grapes. Its key ingredients have been shown in laboratory studies to activate cells’ defenses, neutralize free radicals, and protect against cell damage.*1 Vivix also has a positive impact on cellular energy production.* The mitochondria of your cells generate energy but decline as you age. Key ingredients in Vivix have been shown to increase the mitochondrial mass.*
When it comes to combating the effects of aging, it’s best to start from the inside. Take care of your health and the health of your cells (they make up your whole body after all!).
