Aging may be inevitable, but why not take steps to make the process as efficient as possible by incorporating nutritional supplements to help along the way. There are several exciting new products on the market that have the potential to do just that. You've probably heard of one of the critical ingredients - resveratrol - a plant polyphenol commonly found in red wine.1 Reported health benefits regarding plant polyphenols include positive effects on the cardiac system, neurological system, and cancer suppression.*1
Another healthy aging ingredient is nicotinamide riboside (NR).* NR is an intermediate to NAD+ (meaning the body converts NR to NAD+), which is essential in repairing and maintaining genomic integrity and plays a vital role in many diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and pro-inflammatory diseases.*2 NR supplementation increases NAD+ levels which are essential activators of sirtuin.*2
You're probably asking, what is sirtuin? Sirtuin is an anti-oxidant enzyme that depends on NAD+ to function, and sirtuin responds to nutritional and environmental stressors.* These stressors could include fasting, ionizing radiation, DNA damage, oxidative stress, and more.*2
Unfortunately, studies show that sirtuin activity declines with age, so supplementation with products that increase its activity can help make this enzyme more available for use.* Supplementation with NAD+ intermediaries (resveratrol and NR) can increase NAD+ levels, increasing sirtuin activity.*2 In fact, one study stated that resveratrol is "the most potent activator (of sirtuin)...."1
Thorne's ResveraCel® supplement is an excellent source of these vital components to healthy aging*. This product features both of the essential elements discussed in this article, resveratrol and nicotinamide riboside (NR) (as well as other cofactors).3
