Live long and Prosper
What? What was that? You say you want to thwart the undesirable effects of aging, sail through life with ease and live way past your IRA balance? Read on. There probably isn’t a person alive today who doesn’t want to look and feel younger. It is one of the great human ironies. When we’re young, we can’t wait to be adults in the real world. And when that comes to pass, well, you know the rest.
Aside from wanting to look and feel our best, we simultaneously strive to live a very long and healthy life, want to grow old gracefully-especially if we’re feeling (and looking) great while we’re doing it. So where is that elusive fountain of youth we’ve all been hearing about? Surprisingly, it may just be in your fridge, your gym, your bed and your medicine cabinet.
You are what you eat: The value of a balanced diet
Yep. It’s true. Eating properly, i.e. lots of whole grains, vegetables, fish, legumes, fruit and skimping on high calorie sweets and fats can help you live a long, healthy life. Consuming antioxidants on a daily basis can help your body fight free radicals and in turn some of the telltale signs of aging. Another benefit to eating right is that it gives your body the tools it needs to help regulate blood sugar, control your weight and blood pressure and strengthen and fortify your bones. This is all a recipe for success.

Hit the treadmill (then hit the pillow): Commitment to exercise and rest
It is popular belief that regular exercise (ideally 4-5 times a week) can fight stress. Stress can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and myriad other health problems. Exercise can also strengthen the heart and bones and help with symptoms of arthritis.1 The after effects of exercise are lasting too, and the increased feelings of relaxation and wellbeing can stay with you throughout the night and well into the next day. Exercise has also been found to zap depression and even enhance mental clarity by increasing serotonin levels in the brain therefore a workout can leave you looking and thinking at your best. 2, 3
There is a reason it is called “beauty rest.” Sleep is another very important component for longevity, anti-aging and overall good health. Sometimes a full night’s sleep eludes us and it shows the next day. A restful night’s sleep can enhance the immune system, promote mental acuity and stave off unwanted health problems like obesity.4 We appear rested, alert and even those fine lines seem to fade into the ether.
So where is this “wellness Utopia” located where everyone sleeps well, eats a balanced diet and gets plenty of daily exercise? If you find out, please let us know.
Luckily, for the rest of us, help is readily available.
Supplemental Insurance: The right kind of support
There are many nutritional supplements and vitamins on the market today that can fill in the gaps for those of us who are too busy to lead a Utopian lifestyle. One such supplement is CoQ10, famous for its heart health properties. CoQ10 also helps to increase energy levels, and fortify the immune system among many other benefits. It comes in various forms, mostly related to absorption levels. Solanova offers the proprietary Bio-Solv® form, Q-Gel® CoQ10 in both 60mg and 100mg softgels. We're now pleased to introduce our new top absorption CoQ10 product in the Ubiquinol form! It is the only lipid- & hydro-soluble CoQ10 available today. Since our bodies become less able to convert Ubiquinone into the usable Ubiquinol form as we age,Super QNol® in 100mg softgels is the answer to getting the most absorption and highest levels of usable CoQ10 possible.
Another powerful supplement to consider is MultiSential Vege Cap, a full spectrum multivitamin -- allowing you to get a powerful array of vitamins and minerals but in easy-to-swallow capsule form.
With all these healthy tools at your disposal, the sky’s the limit. So better keep funding those retirement accounts -- sounds like you might be drawing on them for a long time to come.
