Fighting Ageing With Natural Supplements

Is ageing inevitable? The experts from Youth & Earth explain how natural supplements can hold off bodily processes such as ‘autophagy’

• What is the process of autophagy?
Autophagy comes from the Greek words “auto” meaning self and “phagy” meaning eating. A critical part of cellular and tissue regeneration, it involves “self-eating” damaged cells and then using some of those damaged cells for cell repair and cleaning.

As an evolutionary mechanism for self-preservation, autophagy also helps remove toxic proteins from the body that contribute to a wide range of neurodegenerative diseases. The onset of autophagy is triggered around 24 hours into a fast.

• What are Blue Zones?

Blue Zones are specific parts around the world where people live to be 90 to 100 years old. The researcher Dan Buettner circled these areas in blue, such as Icaria in Greece, Ogliastra in Sardinia, Italy, Okinawa in Japan, the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica and Loma Linda in California, hence the name Blue Zones.

The residents all shared common characteristics of plant and fish-based diets, moderate intake of alcohol, reduced calorie consumption, and daily exercised Their healthy lifestyles all positively impacted their longevity pathways (mTOR, Sirtuins, NF-kb, and AMPK).

• What is NMN and NR and why are they needed?

NMN (β-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) and NR (Nicotinamide Riboside Chloride) are naturally occurring compounds that provide us with the means to transform and absorb a very important co-enzyme, NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide). Every cell relies on it for natural fuel, so we can feel active and alive. We cannot absorb it directly due to its size. NAD+ repairs DNA, identifies and corrects defective molecules, as well as signalling so that all our living cells can function properly

NAD+ levels decline up to 50% between the ages of 40 and 60. Without sufficient NAD+, our cell energy transfer breaks down causing age-accelerating conditions. To boost these levels quickly and efficiently you can use NMN or NR supplements

• How do you take NMN and NR?

Both NMN and NR supplements are best taken in the morning on an empty stomach, to boost your energy levels for the day.

NMN and NR capsules are taken orally, while NMN and NR Sublingual Powder powder can be placed directly under your tongue, where your capillaries will allow for absorption bypassing your GI tract.

We recommend you take NMN with an activator of Sirtuin, like Resveratrol, Curcumin, or Pterostilbine, which acts as an accelerator. The AMPK activator Berberine is another option.

Our NMN Sublingual Powder comes with a little scoop/spoon inside that measures 250mg. A chart with age and weight dosages based on customer feedback can be found on the NMN product pages, so you can find the dosage that works best for you. For your convenience, we have provided a table below.

• What is the story behind Youth & Earth?

Youth & Earth began with a story of a successful consultant in a highly competitive and stressful industry where extensive travel was a norm. His “get up and go attitude that had propelled his career had literally “got up and gone” and he knew his health was in serious trouble. This led him to perform a home blood test kit and discover that all his biomarkers were out of whack. Despite exercising regularly, he had gained weight and his cholesterol and blood sugar levels were extremely high. He was on the verge of developing type 2 diabetes! There and then he decided to do something about it.

While researching health, he came across the iconic biohacker and longevity expert Dr David Sinclair. His words, “Ageing is a disease and that disease is treatable.” was an epiphany for him. He discovered that his NAD+ levels were declining, contributing to his premature ageing and symptoms. To raise NAD+ levels in his body, he decided to try NMN – a substance naturally occurring in the body. He noticed a dramatic increase in his physical and mental energy levels and his life changed at this point!

That man is Ed Van Harmelen and to share his newfound hope, he founded Youth & Earth and launched NMN as its flagship product. His goal is to provide his customers with products tailored directly to their needs as he continues to research and add to his all-natural Youth & Earth supplements.
