Age with style and grace

A ging may be inevitable , but with advancement in research and technology , there are plenty of ways you can slow , or even reverse , the hands of time to stay healthy and promote longevity .

Consider these ideas from Longevity Labs +, a company dedicated to cutting-edge aging research and the makers of spermidineLIFE , a firstof-its kind , clinically studied supplement containing natural spermidine , which renews cells and can reverse the signs of aging :

Protect your skin

Not only does your skin protect vital internal organs , it ' s an essential barrier to intruders like bacteria and other infection-causing microbes . The skin is also the body ' s greatest tool in managing hydration levels and providing critical cues to your nervous system about things like temperature and pain .
With such a big role in your overall health and wellbeing , the skin often shows the first signs of aging . Wrinkles and age spots are often indicators of a person ' s true age .
However , you can reduce the visible impacts of aging on the skin with daily care . Regularly moisturizing helps keep skin supple , and diligent sunscreen application year-around can protect your skin from damaging sun rays . Some compounds and nutrient plans can help nurture youthful skin .
It ' s also important to closely monitor your skin for changes , especially changes to moles or other spots that may be signs of skin cancer , which is generally treatable when caught and managed early . In addition , collagen peptides and a spermidine-rich diet can be
key in ensuring healthy skin into your later years .

Maintain clean and healthy cells

However , a compound naturally produced by the body and found in nature called spermidine can clean cells of toxic matter so they can operate with renewed youth and efficiency . Spermidine triggers a cellular renewal
process called autophagy , which allows cells to shed layers of waste and regenerate instead of slowing down and dying off . As the body ages , natural levels of spermidine decline , cellular regeneration slows and signs of aging are accelerated .
Spermidine is a key to anti-aging and is believed to help reduce the onset of neurodegenerative and age-related diseases . You can boost spermidine levels by eating certain foods that are high in spermidine , like lentils , soybeans , mushrooms , aged cheese , pears , broccoli , peas and cauliflower .
However , few people eat enough spermidine-rich foods to maintain optimal levels in their later years . Taking a supplement like
award-winning spermidineLIFE * can support cellular renewal and help cells stay young and healthy . The first and only clinically studied spermidine supplement in the world , it includes spermidine naturally extracted from European non-GMO wheat germ along with carefully selected vitamins , minerals and healthy fats .
