The brief was I wanted something amazing to kickstart everything that was ageing in my body. I was looking for the Benjamin Button effect. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t consider 48 aged in any way, but let’s be honest, once you get to 40 you start to notice little things like having to strain your eyes to read a text message, the recovery time to get over a bottle of wine and your bedtime shifts from 11:30pm to 9:30pm. I wanted to feel revitalised and renewed from the inside out. I wanted to feel like Lindsay Wagner in the Bionic Woman like I could do anything again. My team raised a few eyebrows at me when I said, “I want a secret ingredient”. Have I mentioned I have an amazing team? Well, I do, and they found me exactly what I was looking for.
WHAT’S IN IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
TruNiagen (Nicotinamide riboside chloride) What does it do? It raises the levels of NAD + in the cells. NAD is a crucial enzyme that regulates energy, metabolism and survival. It’s an odd word, survival, isn’t it? We live in a very regulated country, so we have to use words like survival and not words like A-A. No, not Alcoholics Anonymous, the other A-A (remember my Benjamin Button reference above). NAD+ acts as fuel for many key biological processes, such as:
- Repairing damaged DNA
- Converting food into energy
- Fortifying cell defence systems
- Setting your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm
Low NAD+ levels have been linked to health concerns like declining metabolic function so having a supplement that raises those declining levels is… Eureka! If you are still not sure what it does, Google it!
Coenzyme Q10 is well known for its cardioprotective properties. It’s a powerful antioxidant that protects all tissues, especially the energy-producing mitochondria inside cells. Women over 50 tend to be more deficient in this compound and as a result, energy levels can seem lower. CoQ10 is responsible for generating cellular energy and reducing free radicals formed in the body. It also assists with maintaining a healthy immune system.
Reishi mushroom is a fungus that grows in various hot and humid locations in Asia. It has several molecules, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides and peptidoglycans, that are responsible for its activity as an adaptogen (a remedy that helps the body adapt to stress). It is used traditionally in Chinese medicine as a “longevity tonic” (another one of those odd words) and to generate and strengthen one’s qi (chi, or life force). It’s also a popular choice for immune support and liver health.
Milk Thistle was chosen for this product because as we reach our menopause years our organs might be slowing down a little and finding it a bit harder to look after us. After all, they are the same age as us, right? And perhaps we haven’t done that much to look after them. Imagine what our insides would look like if we looked after them like our skin on the outside, exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturising it daily. Milk Thistle is your make up herb for organs. It’s a liver and gallbladder tonic that protects the liver and kidneys. It’s also an antioxidant, detoxifier and your digestive system loves it.
Siberian Ginseng is used to prevent colds and flu. In Western herbal tradition, it was used to increase energy, longevity and vitality. We use it today because of its ability to improve cognitive function and to relieve symptoms of fatigue, weakness and exhaustion.
Curcumin fits this product very well because now that we have looked after our organs, increased our NAD + levels for you know what, sharpened our wit, strengthened our qi and dealt with fatigue with some Asian mushy, all that is left is to promote is a bit of bile flow and maintain a healthy digestive system. Nailed it! The ultimate rejuvenation tonic!
