Total Cell Rejuvenation

Cells and Aging

Even with the most nutrient dense diet, it’s impossible to always feel absolutely amazing.

Let’s get real.  We age.  Yeah, I know, duh, right?

What do you think of regarding aging?  Maybe…joint pain or wrinkles…ugh.

As we age, we begin to experience changes in our cells which become apparent when we notice things such as wrinkles, because skin becomes thinner and we lose fat in our face.  Also, your bones and muscles become weaker.  Your memory gets a bit wonky, and your immune system cannot fight disease as easily.

Nutrition

Are there foods that we should focus on to reduce the aging process?

ABSOLUTELY!  Much research has been done on certain foods and especially certain ‘superfoods’ which allow for peak performance and stamina.  Also, foods that are rich in antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of molecules in our body.

“Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells.” – Wikipedia.com

Let’s look at a list of well known foods (including drinks, herbs and spices) that have good to high antioxidant levels:

Dark chocolate or cacao

Berries (Strawberries, goji, blueberries, amla, blackberries, acai, etc.)

Green tea

Plums

Walnuts

Spinach

Kombucha

Kale

Olives

Beets

Fresh herbs or spices such as oregano or cinnamon

There are also many natural supplements or extracts which contain skyrocket amounts of antioxidants.

Antioxidant Rich Supplements

Grape seed extract

Coq10 or Ubiquinol

Green tea extract

Various ‘superfood‘ formulas

ACES (Vitamins A, C, E plus Selenium)

Glutathione

Resveratrol

and the list goes on….

But what if there was one single natural supplement which took cellular health to the next level towards optimal health?

My answer is MSM or methyl-sulfonyl-methane.

MSM

MSM which is made up of 34% sulfur is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body.  Sulfur is present in all living tissue.

It is a vital building block of amino acids and connective tissue including joints, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails.

MSM also supports many essential metabolic processes in the body.

MSM provides a variety of health benefits and is utilized to repair, rebuild, rejuvenate, strengthen and cleanse the cells of the body.

The health benefits of MSM supplementation include the following:

Increase collagen production for healthy hair, skin, nails and joints

Repair intestinal damage

Detoxification

Enhanced circulation

Mental clarity

Anti-Inflammatory response

Reduced allergy symptoms

Reduced arthritis pain

Increased recovery time from sports injury

Reduced chances of bladder disorders

Improved digestion

Dosage

Because MSM comes in both capsule, tablet and powder form, I recommend following dosage instructions on the container or bottle.

Generally I recommend only 1 gram which is equal to 1,000 mg per day to start.  You may increase gradually after the first few days up to 3 or 4 grams.

DO NOT take a large dose to start off with because you will have a rapid detoxification response.

I also highly recommend taking MSM alongside Vitamin C for enhanced benefits.

To purchase MSM supplements, check out your local health food or independently owned vitamin store.  Most likely they will carry a variety of products to choose from for your specific health needs.
