It is important to determine what methods can be used today to increase healthy aging, forestall the onset of age-related diseases, and create conditions favorable to obtaining a “longevity dividend.” Recent studies suggest that consumption of diets rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components such as those found in fruits, nuts,
vegetables, and spices, or even reduced caloric intake, may lower age-related cognitive declines and the risk of developing neurodegenerative disease.
Together, the findings provide compelling evidence to suggest lifestyle changes involving caloric selection through alterations in berry fruit, nut, fish oil, and curcumin intake, and caloric restriction may provide beneficial effects in aging and prevent or delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as AD. These changes may provide the most efficacious methods thus far for increasing “health span.” Interestingly, while many of the mechanisms for the beneficial effects of these nutritional interventions have yet to be discerned, it is clear that they involve decreases in oxidative/inflammatory stress signaling, increases in protective signaling, and may even involve effects to protect against the two major villains of aging, oxidative and inflammatory stressors.
OxyNaturals Comment: All of our nutriceuticals, especially OxySpark, OxyBoost and MemNivia contain anti-inflammatory/anti-oxidative ingredients and as such are very effective in increasing the "health span" of the aging population.
