- Vitamin C / Flavonoids
- Vitamin E
- Green Tea Extract
- Folic Acid / Vitamin B12
- Calcium / Magnesium
- Ginkgo Biloba
WHAT SUPPLEMENTS CAN YOU USE TO SLOW DOWN AGING
Some supplements should be used daily by everyone concerned about the effects of ageing. Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants that fight free radicals.
Vitamin C and Flavonoids work within the cells watery interiors while Vitamin E protects the fatty membranes that surround the cell, in addition it improves immune function in older people and reduces the risk of some age-related conditions, including heart disease, some forms of cancer and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.
Green tea extract which has long been prized for longevity promoting properties, is an excellent extract to have, and grape seed extract is another antioxidant that may be more potent than vitamin C and E.
Folic Acid is a B Vitamin which maintains red blood cells and promotes the healthy function of nerves. Moreover it protects the Heart by helping the body process homocysteine, an amino acid-like compound that may raise the risk of heart disease.
Folic acid Is best assisted by vitamin B12 which Fosters healthy brain function. Vitamin B12 supplements are useful for older people because many of them lose the ability to absorb the Vitamin D from food, and low B12 levels can cause nerve damage and dementia.
It is probably best to take B vitamins in the form of an A to Z multivitamin and mineral formation, these have been shown to improve the immune function and reduce infection rates in the elderly who need more of a wide range of nutrients.
The amino acid like substance Carnitine contributes to a healthy heart because it helps to transport oxygen to the cells and produces energy. To protect against osteoporosis, nutritionists recommend supplementation with Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D because doses of these are not supplied by multivitamin and mineral formation.
The herb Ginkgo Biloba enhances blood flow, and may therefore improve such age-related conditions as dizziness, impotence and memory loss.
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO ABOUT AGING
- Protect yourself from the sun as ultraviolet rays make skin age faster.
- If you smoke give it up. Smoking speeds bone and lung deterioration.
- Build and maintain bone and muscle mass with weight bearing exercise such as walking and weight training.
- Eat a variety of fruit and vegetables as they are rich in antioxidants, and oily fish for Omega-3 fatty acids.
FACTS AND TIPS

Vitamin E may add years to your life. In a study by the US National Institute on Aging, people who took vitamin E supplements were about half as likely to die of a heart disease as those not using vitamin E.
In another American study the vitamin strengthened the immune system in people aged 65 and older.
A Swiss study found a link between high level of antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamin C in the blood and better memory skills in older people.
