The goal of our Anti-Aging program is simple: maintain health and youthfulness throughout your life. This means be in the best of health – mentally and physically. Obtain good medical care and maintain a strong immune system to avoid disease. Exude energy like someone who is much younger. Be happy. Enjoy life.
There are four major theories of aging described in the book “The Anti-Aging Revolution” by Dr. Ronald Klatz, O.D. and Dr. Robert Goldman M.D., founders of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. These four major theories are:
Jean Carper in Stop Aging Now! demonstrates that aging is actually a monumental, progressive deficiency disease. It begins to appear in adulthood, picks up in middle age and takes a giant leap after age fifty. You can prevent and correct aging to an amazing extent by taking antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other supplements.
Ms Carper asks "if there was a magic potion to preserve youth, who wouldn't take it?" She answers her rhetorical question by saying "the prospect of youth potions is no longer remote. In fact, such awesome agents are here now. The staggering truth is that scientists have already identified scores of substances that strike at the very heart of aging by slowing down and even reversing the deterioration that we now view as normal aging. And although you may not realize it, you have wide access to virtually all these youth potions."
Read Jean Carper's lively and compelling, well-researched book, published in 1995. Then you will further understand the basis for the Rejuvenation-Science® Anti-Aging Supplement Series™, reflecting updated research through 2007.
Rejuvenation Science Anti-Aging Series
We have acquired the finest quality formulations to create the Rejuvenation Science® Anti-Aging Supplement Series™. These supplements are chosen to address aging as it is presented in these theories of aging, and the clinical, every-day signs of aging that we all experience.
Rejuvenation Science® Green C™ enhances the basic level of antioxidants in our Maximum Vitality™ multivitamin. This synergistic antioxidant formulation includes Vitamin C, Green Tea, Grape Seed Extract, N-acetylcysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Turmeric (curcuminoids), Lycopene, and Blueberry. It addresses the Wear and Tear, Genetic Control, and Free Radical theories of aging.
Rejuvenation Science® Coenzyme Q10 Ubiquinol is the most absorbable form of Coenzyme Q10. It is also an antioxidant. Ubiquinol assists the mitochondria to provide cellular energy to minimize cellular and organ wear and tear from a sometimes toxic and stressful environment. Studies have shown Coenzyme Q10 to be beneficial especially for normal heart function, to protect DNA from free radical induced oxidative damage, and to maintain healthy energy levels.*
Rejuvenation Science® Biom3ga™ Supercritical Fish Oil provides Omega-3 fatty acids -- DHA and EPA -- to balance the excess omega-6 fatty acids in a typical modern-day diet. "Long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, the beneficial component ingested by eating fish or taking a fish oil supplement, reduce heart attack and other problems related to heart and blood vessel disease in people who already have these conditions, as well as their overall risk of death" according to the AHRQ.
Rejuvenation Science® Biom3ga™ Krill Oil™ provides significant health benefits from three important nutritional categories: omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and antioxidants. These nutrients work together to support healthy cell membranes, joints, the heart and many other body systems. Biom3ga Krill Oil helps maintain healthy cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels that are already in the normal range.
Rejuvenation Science® High Energy Chai Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants called polyphenols and flavonols. Research shows that components of green tea may help manage cholesterol & triglycerides levels already in the normal range; support healthy blood clotting; enhance immune function; and enhance weight loss. The Chai flavor blend gives it great flavor.
Theories of Aging
Wear and Tear Aging Theory
The wear and tear theory of aging says that the body and its cells are damaged over time by use and abuse. The organs – liver, stomach, kidneys, skin, etc. – are worn down by toxins in the diet and the environment, by the excess consumption of fat, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and nicotine, by the ultraviolet rays of the sun, and by the many physical and emotional stresses to which our bodies are subject. Wear and tear is not confined to the organs, but exhibits at the cellular level also.
This theory holds that moderate exercise, good diet, nutritional supplements, and other treatments can help reverse the aging process by stimulating the body’s own ability to repair and maintain its organs and cells.
Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging
Hormones are vital for repairing and regulating body functions. When aging causes a drop in hormone production, it causes a decline in your body’s ability to repair and regulate itself efficiently. The neuroendocrine system is made up of these hormones which regulate many body functions. Hormones are regulated by the hypothalamus gland which is located within the brain.
Hormone replacement therapy helps to affect more efficient body functioning.
Genetic Control Theory
DNA (dioxyriboneuclaic acid) controls the functioning of the cells and organs of the body. The genetic control theory postulates that DNA is programmed with a certain lifespan. As the DNA ages, it directs the cells to age and then to begin to die.
Antioxidants and anti-aging treatments act to support and extend the life of DNA. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to protect DNA from free-radical induced oxidative damage.
Free Radical Theory
A free radical is a molecule with an extra electron. It is inherently unstable, attempting to bond with another molecule to steal a matching electron and attain electrical equilibrium. In doing this the free radicals create new free radicals and extensive bodily damage. That damage can be in the form of RNA and DNA damage, interfere with the synthesis of proteins and destroy cellular enzymes which are needed for vital chemical processes. As people age, this free radical damage can create mutant cells, leading ultimately to cancer and death.
Free radical damage is also known as oxidation. Substances that prevent the harmful effects of oxidation are known as antioxidants. Common antioxidants include Vitamins C, E, and beta carotene, the precursor to Vitamin A. Many other substances have antioxidant properties including Coenzyme Q10, alpha lipoic acid (sometimes called the universal antioxidant), N-acetylcysteine, flavonoids from plants which include green tea, grape seed, turmeric, lycopene (from tomatoes), and bilberry. The antioxidant value of nutrients is measured on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale.
