Our research colleagues at the Linus Pauling Institute have discovered yet another benefit of Juvenon’s key ingredient, lipoic acid. It seems that this mighty micronutrient resets and synchronizes circadian rhythms, or the biological clock found in most life forms.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a magic bullet that stopped your risk of cancer in its tracks? Unfortunately, there is no such thing, but researchers are learning more and more each day. The American Institute for Cancer Prevention and World Cancer Research Fund recently released a report with recommendations for cancer prevention.
You know that “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” feeling? Perhaps you’ve been eating sensibly, but somehow you feel puffy and uncomfortable? This temporary abdominal distension is commonly known as belly bloat and it is different than the extra weight that many wrestle with.
Here at Juvenon we pride ourselves in providing credible information on health issues that are near and dear to your heart. A recent study published in Nutrition Journal fulfills this company-wide goal in a big way….
Simply put, youthful, beautiful skin is a reflection of what is going on inside your body at a cellular level. To understand the entire aging process, one must start at the cellular level. The well-established free radical theory of aging states that mitochondria are the major source of toxic oxidants. The consequence of this destructive activity is an inefficient cell and a body we recognize as aged with – you guessed it – wrinkled skin.
Whether it’s abstract concepts or planning our day, why do we seem to think more slowly as we age? To date, there is no definitive answer, but an understanding of the aging brain and its energy requirements offers some clues.
The goal, for most of us, is a long, healthy life. Genetics clearly play a significant role, but environmental factors are, perhaps, equally important in determining longevity and health. Although, for the moment, our genetic make-up is beyond our control, we can influence our lifespan with our diet and daily routine.
Imagine driving in city traffic. The lights are timed so that, if you’re lucky and there aren’t any accidents or crazy drivers cutting in front of you, you can drive several blocks before a red light stops you. But realistically, multiple factors often throw the system off balance and the traffic rarely flows smoothly…
Is it possible to extend lifespan? Although it hasn’t been proven for humans yet, the answer seems to be yes, at least for yeast, flies, mice and, according to recent research, primates.
