All cells in the human body have a limited capacity to divide over the course of our lives, and as they approach that limit, the process that we know as aging shows in our bodies. External factors such as smoking, stress, chronic inflammation and pollution all play a part in the speed with which the aging process takes place, making it important to limit our exposure to external toxins as much as possible. Cell damage is caused by free radicals that result from exposure to these external toxins.+ Read more >
Supporting the body nutritionally through the use of quality anti-aging supplements is an important part of slowing down the aging process and maintaining overall health. Some of the most important anti-aging supplements for neutralizing free radicals are antioxidants. These include Vitamin A, C, E, CoEnzyme Q10, Carnosine, and carotenoids. Another anti-aging supplement with important health benefits is Resveratrol. This nutrient has shown dramatic results for reducing the incidence of cancer, as well as maintaining heart and cardiovascular health. Other beneficial anti-aging supplements include Omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids, glucosamine and chondroitin, calcium magnesium, and Vitamin D. Vitamin B 12 supports the nervous system, blood cells and digestive functions and is often depleted in the elderly. Taking a high quality Vitamin B 12 supplement along with folic acid provides the body with the nutritional support it needs for healthy cell functioning. Simple diet and lifestyle changes that can be incorporated into our lives will also enhance the effects of anti-aging supplements and lead to increased energy and an overall feeling of wellness. Eating a diet that has 30 – 50% less calories than an unrestricted diet, but increasing the nutritional value of the foods we eat by consuming more fruits and vegetables has been shown to be beneficial in studies. Exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, limiting exposure to harmful chemicals and doing cleanses to eliminate the build-up of toxins in our bodies are all lifestyle changes that can contribute to slowing the aging process. Maximize your lifestyle efforts to slow the aging process with high quality anti-aging supplements from Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store today. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
R(+) SR is the natural form of this vital antioxidant. It is the sole form produced in the body for use in the mitochondria. All lipoic acids including conventional "lipoic acid" or "alpha lipoic acid" supplements are only 50% R(+)-lipoic acid; the other half of such supplements is the artificial S(-)-enantiomer. The one feature limiting all lipoic acids is the extremely short plasma half life of around 22 minutes. R(+) SR is specially formulated with a more bioavailable salt form than the conventional "alpha lipoic acid" or R+ Lipoic acid and is more stable to heat and moisture making it more resistant to polymerization. In addition, R(+)SR is formulated in a special matrix to provide a sustained release guaranteed for 8-10 hours. Two to three capsules of R(+)SR provides a 24 hour coverage of this important and versatile antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an extraordinary antioxidant. Unfortunately, its effectiveness has been limited on two fronts. Firstly, supplemental lipoic acid has been manufactured with the R+ and S- enantiomers - two molecules with the same chemical formula but with different structures. The R+ form is naturally occurring and the beneficial effects of alpha lipoic acid come from the R+ isomer. The S+ form however is artificial, a byproduct of the manufacturing process and is harmful because it is thought to prevent the utilization of the R+ enantiomer. This is especially detrimental with ALA because the molecule has a very short half-life in the body, estimated at 22 minutes; the second shortcoming of this molecule. The solution is, in theory, simple. To reap the full benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid, an R+ sustained release formula would be ideal and would offer continual resistance against free radicals and prolonged insulin sensitivity in diabetics.

Antioxidant Synergy includes the complete "Antioxidant Network," the body's five-member antioxidant defense and recycling system. Most antioxidants lose their protective power once they have quenched a single free radical. These five antioxidants - R(+)-lipoic acid (the natural mitochondrial form of lipoic acid), the complete vitamin E complex (tocopherols and tocotrienols), vitamin C (in both fat- and water-soluble forms), glutathione (as effective precursors), and coenzyme Q10 - are unique in their synergistic ability to "recycle" one another into their active antioxidant forms. Selenium (an essential cofactor of the enzyme thioredoxin reductase) and flavonoids are proven network "boosters.

Benfotiamine is a naturally-occurring form of thiamin (vitamin B1). Benfotiamine's superior ability to penetrate cell membranes increases its bioavailability over conventional thiamin supplements. This allows for the use of benfotiamine to elicit all of the benefits of vitamin B1, such as the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and fat, in a highly efficient manner.

Carnosine is a dipeptide found in high concentrations in brain and muscle tissues. A potent inhibitor of damage to proteins from sugar (glycation) and scavenger of free radicals, carnosine has been shown to reverse cellular senescence in culture. Preliminary evidence suggests that it may provide support conditions of sub-optimal brain homocarnosine metabolism leading to impairment in social interaction, communication, stereotyped behavior, and symbolic or imaginative interaction.

Glycine is the simplest of all amino acids required for protein synthesis in the body. Research supports a role for glycine in supporting a wide range of bodily structures and functions, including release of somatotropin (human growth hormone), memory function, healthy thought patterns, collagen synthesis, normal cell growth and development, glucose metabolism after a carbohydrate load, and preventing unhealthy angiogenesis (blood vessel formation).
