LET’S TALK ABOUT AGING…
Aging is a hot topic in almost every generation. How do I preserve a youthful glow? How do I prevent fine lines before they appear? How do I reduce the visible signs of aging? How do I feel young again?
Insert thousands upon thousands of targeted anti-aging ads here.
And there are many great products that do help target the symptoms of aging, but are there any which actually get to the root cause of aging?
To answer that question let us first describe the process of aging.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU AGE?
Aging isn’t just the visible signs you wear on your skin, it is a process that takes place within every cell in your body.
As you age, your cells experience multiple chemical processes of aging — oxidation, glycation, and methylation.
During oxidation, unstable compounds, known as free radicals, can lead to cell damage and produce harmful chemicals. Moving on to glycation, these harmful chemicals compromise mitochondria, proteins, and DNA. The DNA lacks sufficient methyl groups and cannot continue to produce new DNA for future cells, and cell regeneration comes to a halt.
When your body can no longer produce new, healthy cells to maintain its tissues and functions, aging occurs.
ANTI-AGING: FACT OR FAD?
Common definitions of anti-aging refer to the process of slowing, stopping, or even reversing the process of aging.
But true anti-aging battles go beyond the skin and are fought on the cellular level.
Since aging negatively affects cells, preventing them from functioning properly, targeted anti-aging aims to minimize the cell damage that occurs on a molecular level as a result of the environment, stress, illness, and the natural effects of time.
One of the most effective anti-aging molecules ever researched is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+.
NAD+ is a coenzyme found in all cells and is a conductor for cell metabolism. Enzymes are catalysts that make biochemical reactions possible and coenzymes are ‘helper’ molecules which enzymes need in order to function.
NAD+ is the most abundant molecule in the body besides water, and without it, any organism would die. NAD+ is used by many proteins throughout the body, such as the sirtuins, which repair damaged DNA. It is also important for mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of the cell by helping turn the nutrients we eat into adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, allowing cells to exchange and produce energy. Abundant NAD+ keeps you feeling younger by supporting multiple aspects of healthy aging, cellular metabolism, body composition, and normal circadian rhythm function.
YOUR BODY’S NAD+ IS FINITE.
Low NAD+ is a hallmark of aging. As your NAD+ deplete, your cells cannot regenerate, and you age. Studies show we lose 50% of our NAD+ by age 60, and with it goes the vibrancy of youth. Skin loses elasticity, fatigue sets in, muscles weaken, and bones become brittle – to name just a few symptoms.
So, we can boost NAD+ levels by taking NAD+ supplements, right? Yes and no. Scientists around the world have long searched for a way to supplement NAD+ but kept coming across a problem.
NAD+ in supplemental form has very poor bioavailability, meaning it doesn’t have much of an effect when introduced to the body.
However, NAD+ does have a precursor or intermediate—a molecule that transforms into NAD+ through enzymatic reactions.
WHAT SETS FLUORESSA’S PRODUCTS APART?
NMN as a NAD+ supplement is a relatively new venture for the anti-aging sciences, and being on the cutting edge of science always comes with one big caveat – the pricetag.
SO, WHAT’S IN THE PRICE?
When it comes to NMN, the purer the NMN the better. A lot of supplement providers combine low doses of NMN with multiple other ingredients, and while these filler ingredients may not be harmful to you, they take up room that NMN could be filling.
Single-ingredient, pure NMN, in the 9000mg range can go for dizzying heights of around $2,000.
Because of our unique process, we are able to offer NMN supplements at competitively high doses for a fraction of the cost.
AGING AFFECTS EVERYONE.
Maintenance, prevention, repair. The three musketeers of aging.
At Fluoressa, we believe in all three and we believe it is never too early or too late to defy the effects of aging.
