Anti-aging is a BIG buzzword that you may have heard already in the world of dietary supplements. However, there is much more to stopping the hands of Father Time than you may think. Today, there are more toxins in the environment than ever before, leading to the production of more damaging compounds inside our own bodies. The most common (and harmful) of these compounds include what are known as free radicals. As a byproduct of the natural oxidation process in your body, they have been clinically shown to damage healthy cells, mutate them, and even cause cellular death.1
What is Oxidation?
Most people who shop in regular grocery stores have probably already seen the word “anti-oxidant,” maybe on health foods, juice, or even shampoo bottles. But what are they? Antioxidants are naturally protective substances that can be found in numerous food sources such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. The role of antioxidants is primarily to minimize damage caused by unstable molecules in the human body produced during the oxidation process. Your body undergoes this process as a reaction to many things like UV rays from the sun, toxins in your food supply, and even exercise. While the oxidative process is a natural thing, the byproducts of this process can be harmful to your cells, and even threaten your overall good health.
Known as “free radicals,” these harmful molecules are imbalanced by nature. Due to their chemical structure, they are lacking one electron, and in order to regain stability, they continue to travel throughout your body until they can find one to “steal.” Antioxidants freely donate the missing electron to rogue free radical molecules to stop them from “stealing,” from your healthy cells, and damaging your good health. For this reason, antioxidant compounds from any source play a vital role in neutralizing free radicals, and minimizing their damage in the body.
The Power of the Active Stem Formula
If there was a fountain of youth, it would be stem cells. Studies have even called them, “immortal cells,” as they express what’s known as highly stable telomerase (an indicator of lifespan). When you are born, your body is filled with these types of cells that essentially act as replacements for old, damaged, or dying cells. However, as we age the amount of active stem cells decline, leaving your body more prone to oxidative stress and the cellular damage that commonly results due to the natural aging process.
While the free radical theory of aging has been popular since it was first discovered by Denham Harman in the 1950’s, today, researchers know that real anti-aging effects can only be attained with the power of stem cells.2 That’s why Active Stem included these five potent ingredients to boost the production of stem cells in your body.3
While there are still very few human clinical trials to prove the efficacy of stem cell therapy for anti-aging results, there are a few studies to show just how the ingredients in Active Stem work to stop the aging process – dead in its tracks!
- Green Tea Extract. Green tea is one of the most popular beverages on Earth, and one of the most health promoting, too! Studies have shown that the main antioxidant compound found in green tea extract (EGCG) also has the power to enhance stem cell growth in vitro.4
- L-Carnosine, Blueberry Extract, Vitamin D3. One study revealed that the synergistic effects of L-carnosine, along with blueberry, green tea, and Vitamin D3 were able to successfully increase the production of new stem cells in human subjects.5
- MELK is an amino acid (protein) that works to help build strong, and dense muscle tissue. It is also a vital structural component of genetic material including DNA, and RNA. As an essential part of MELK (maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase), leucine has been suggested in clinical studies a potential agent for stem cell regeneration.6
Active Stem: The Anti-Aging Formula That Works
Today, there is a lot of talk on the internet and television about antioxidants as a way to reduce the visible signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and even sagging skin. However, there is very little talk about the power of stem cell regeneration to offer even more anti-aging benefits including those that affect the brain, bones, muscles, as well as joint pain.
The stem cell theory of aging goes deeper to address all types of anti-aging. So, get the power of Active Stem to regenerate new cells damaged by the byproducts of oxidation, and the natural aging process. It’s the anti-aging formula that actually works!
