Anti-Aging From The Inside
- Posted on: Dec 30 2017
There are many options for anti-aging that treat conditions externally, such as facelifts, laser resurfacing and injectable fillers. These procedures address lines, wrinkles, age spots, dull complexion and other problems that arise as we get older. The most comprehensive aesthetic plans should also include approaches that fight the signs of aging from the inside. Dr. Petropoulos recommends complementing your cosmetic treatments with anti-aging supplements.
The Benefits of Resveratrol
In 2013, the National Institute of Health published a report about the anti-aging benefits of resveratrol. Resveratrol works by preventing certain enzymes in the body from contributing to the aging process. The mechanism by which the compound affects aging was also studied by a group at Harvard Medical School. The media took to the news very quickly, and many experts began recommending red wine as an anti-aging solution because the skin of grapes contain resveratrol.
Maximizing the Benefits of Resveratrol
While increasing your intake of red wine, cocoa and other foods that contain resveratrol will provide your body with the compound; absorption affects how much you need to ingest to maximize the benefits. Dr. Petropoulos recommends that her patients use supplements rather than increasing foods that contain resveratrol. The reason is that one would need to ingest large quantities of the foods to gain the greatest increase in resveratrol levels. Using red wine as an example, you would need to drink 60,000 bottles each day to absorb the same amount of resveratrol that your body gets from nutraMetrix® supplements.
Other Anti-Aging Solutions
When it comes to anti-aging solutions, the best approach is one that is multi-faceted. Dr. Petropoulos recommends that you complement your nutraMetrix® resveratrol intake with other supplements. By using the Nutri-Physical™ questionnaire, she helps you find the best combination of supplements for your unique needs. Another valuable tool is our Gene SNP DNA Screening Analysis that evaluates your genetic makeup to determine what health challenges you may face as you age. The information helps you to take steps now that may reduce your risk.
