Every cell in the body plays a role in healthy aging. From deep inside your organs to the outermost layer of your skin, how you nourish and protect your cells can help to keep you strong, healthy, and resilient for years to come.
Intermittent Fasting for Wellness
Intermittent fasting can help you reach your weight loss goals, but there are many reasons to fast beyond weight loss. For decades, intermittent fasting has captured the attention of researchers for its benefits in age-related health and longevity. Recent research has found that fasting can lead to improvements in circadian rhythm, circulation, cardiovascular health, cognitive health, and reduced oxidative stress (1-4). Over time, these improvements could contribute to more active, fulfilling years.
A Cleanse Day is the Isagenix method of nutritionally supported intermittent fasting and aids your body’s natural cleansing and renewal systems to promote healthy aging. Cleanse Days aren’t complete without Cleanse for Life®, a phytonutrient-rich botanical beverage that is designed to make intermittent fasting easier and more effective. It gently supports the body’s natural detoxification processes with vitamins, plant-derived trace minerals, and phytonutrient support from turmeric, licorice root, and bilberry, among other nourishing ingredients.
Nourish Your Body
Between Cleanse Days, it’s vital to ensure your body receives balanced nutrition, including a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. However, eating a perfectly nutrient-rich diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables every day can be a challenge. Multivitamins and mineral supplements are an effective way to fill in the gaps. While they play a large role in helping people meet their nutrient needs, research has shown that regularly taking multivitamins alongside a balanced diet is associated with many long-term health benefits.
Diets with adequate vitamins and minerals from both healthful foods and added supplementation have been shown to support cardiovascular and bone health, cognitive performance, and chromosomal telomere length, a biomarker of aging (5-7).
Exercise to Strengthen Your Muscles and Support Your Vitality
Alongside good nutrition, exercise is an extremely powerful tool with ample health benefits. It profoundly affects the body, from building our muscles to supporting our cells, making your daily dose of exercise an important part of youthful aging.
The length of telomeres, the protective endcaps on the strands of DNA inside our cells, are significantly correlated with biological age (8). Each time a cell replicates, which happens millions of times throughout our lifetime, a tiny piece of the endcap is lost. This loss translates to shorter telomeres as we age.
In a 2017 study from Brigham Young University, 5,823 adults were evaluated to better understand the extent that exercise affects telomere length as a measure of biological age (9). The researchers found that those who regularly perform 30-40 minutes of high-intensity exercise, such as running or cycling, at least five times a week could be up to nine years younger on a cellular scale compared to those who don’t exercise at all.
AMPED™ performance nutrition products were designed for competitive athletes but can help anyone get a better workout. With products that target your body’s needs before, during, and after your workout, AMPED products are equally suited for those who are just getting started and those who want to take their performance to the next level.
Reveal Your Skin’s Youthful Radiance
The most visible signs of aging are displayed on our skin, including sunspots, poor texture, and wrinkles. It’s estimated that up to 90 percent of skin aging is caused by UV radiation from sun exposure (10). In addition to limiting your exposure to UV rays from the sun, there’s a lot you can do to improve the visible signs of aging in your skin.
Great skincare can preserve not only a more youthful appearance but also promote healthier, more moisturized skin, too. The outermost layer of the skin forms a protective barrier built of specialized proteins and lipids that helps seal in moisture and shield us from harmful bacteria and damaging UV rays (11). Over time, skin naturally becomes thinner and drier, but accumulated sun damage, cleansers that strip the skin’s natural moisture barrier, and other factors can accelerate drying and impact skin tone and texture. Skin dryness also accentuates the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Ensuring skin is clean, hydrated, and moisturized will help in maintaining a strong protective skin barrier (12-13).
