Youthful Ageing – Can it be done?

Ageing is a funny thing. It’s as if one day you are looking at this young healthy person in the mirror then all of a sudden that person is replaced by this older person looking back at you. 

Does it have to be like this? 

The Winning and Losing in Ageing 

Age is something we all face. It’s part of our journey through this world. Yet how is it some people seem to do it so much better than others? 

It’s as if they are taking sly sips from the Fountain of Youth, defying the ageing process and living an adventurous, happy, healthy, later life. 

So how can we retain that vitality and health as we age? 

One thing that really helps is a healthy lifestyle. 

7 Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle 

Natural foods help give you a more natural body. Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meats, fish, free range poultry, whole grains, pulses, beans, nuts, seeds, vegetarian and vegan proteins etc. 

Cut down on processed foods like take-aways, cakes, biscuits, sweets, ice-cream, chocolate, sugar, sugary drinks, etc. 

Cut down on alcohol and reduce or stop smoking. 

Do some resistance exercise (weight training), three to four times a week. 

Go for a 20 minute walk every day, and try to get a minimum of 8 hours sleep every night. 

Cut down on screen-time (computers, phones, TV’s etc). Especially for two hours before bed. (For more information on this, check out blue light screens and the natural sleep inducing hormone melatonin). 

Science and Ageing 

Another challenge we face as we age is that our bodies are continually being bombarded by toxins called free radicals. They attack and damage our cells and have been implicated in contributing to the negative signs of ageing. 

These negative signs include everything from arthritis and asthma right down to heart disease and cancer, and are also implicated in the wrinkling of the skin. 

We need a certain amount of free-radicals, but our problems begin where they start to over-tax our immune defences and our system can’t stop their destructive activity. 

The problem is that as we age, free radical damage really does go into overdrive, and is widely acknowledged as one of the main contributory causes of ageing. 

Free Radicals – Where They Come From 

We can’t stop free radicals coming into the body. 

They come in from stress, radiation, computers, mobile phones, sunlight, a lot of fats in our diet, alcohol, cigarette smoke, etc. 

What can we do then to combat the damaging effect free radicals can have on our body? 

Help From the Good Guys 

This is where our own superhero defenders come into play. Our Body’s natural defence unit that deals with these nasty toxins is our immune system. This is largely fuelled by amazing defenders called antioxidants. 

These antioxidants use their nutritional superpowers combating bacteria, viruses and toxins that threaten our body. 

Chief among these are the Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and the minerals Zinc, Magnesium, Potassium and Selenium. 

Other very useful antioxidants are Pomegranate, Green Tea, Ginseng, Broccoli-Sprout, Spirulina and Lycopene. 

These are all very valuable antioxidants to have at our disposal to help support us in our advancing years. 

A New Level of Antioxidant Support 

There is already an antioxidant formula that contains all of these antioxidants and more.

It is called Cell Rejuvenation Mix by Tony Quinn Educohealth. 

Together they help form a potent antioxidant defence unit, and come in an easy-to-use tablet form and can be taken with meals. 

This makes them ideal to help provide you with the best of antioxidant support, with benefits that contribute to: 

Normal skin and vision (Vit A). 

Normal Immune Function (B12). 

Reduction of tiredness and fatigue (Vit C, Magnesium and Vit B3). 

Collagen Formation (Vit C). 

Thyroid Function (Iodine). 

Fertility (Zinc). 

Respiratory health (Hesperitin). 

Healthy Ageing (Lycophene). 

Improve concentration and coordination (Panax Ginseng). 

Normal bones, gums, teeth and hair health (Magnesium, Vit C and Biotin). 

That’s some support for one antioxidant formula. 

Start Where You Are At 

Making a change in how you live can be easy for some and not so easy for others, yet we can all start taking steps to improve. 

The big thing is do something and not just stand still and to try adopting some of the Healthy Lifestyle tips from earlier. They really can make such a difference for the better. 

Including Tony Quinn Educohealth Cell Rejuvenation Mix in your daily regime could be a very good place to start. 

It could be the ideal spark to ignite the whole process for you.

Defence Force – Are You Winning Your Inner War?

Did you know that at any given time there is a war going on inside of your body? On one side, in your defence, a force of health helps neutralise threats that attack and damage. The other, forces of illness, decay and degenerative ageing.

Normally the defence force is stronger than the attackers. However, when the attackers become stronger, that is when serious illness can start to gain ground.

Chief among these attackers are toxins called free radicals. Although our body needs a certain amount of them to help with certain body processes, the real problems occur when they flood the system.

These nasty little toxins attack and damage our cells and have been linked to among other things diabetes, heart disease, cancer, DNA damage and even the wrinkling of the skin… 

Know Your Enemy

Free radicals can enter the body from many different directions. 

Stress, air pollution, a lot of fats in our diet, radiation, alcohol, cigarette smoke, exercise, sunlight, etc. 

We can’t stop them coming in but by not smoking and only drinking alcohol in moderation we can limit their supply. 

Also, it is a good idea to adapt a more natural healthy lifestyle.

Our Crack Defence Unit

The good news is our body has its very own crack defensive unit that helps protect us from these free radicals. This defence unit (our immune system) is largely fuelled by nutrients called antioxidants. 

These include the well-known vitamins, A, C, D, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12.

Valuable minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, selenium, copper, chromium and boron also play an important role.

They are like our very own internal team of superheroes that help keep us in good health.

You will be happy to know that you can get these antioxidants in your food and in particular if you are taking in your ‘5 a day’ servings of fresh fruit and vegetables. 

Unfortunately for some of us, we may be neglecting this good advice and instead live more on convenience foods which can be more calorie-dense and nutrient-poor.

This can make it harder for us to load up on these valuable protectors.

A New Level of Defence

A great way around this is to take an antioxidant supplement. However, with so many antioxidants to choose from this can be a little confusing. 

Here are a few tips to help you:

  • Make sure you get a formula strong enough to keep you at your best.
  • Always ensure Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K are in your antioxidant formula.
  • Make sure that your formula contains the important minerals magnesium, zinc, potassium, selenium, copper, chromium, and boron.
  • Other useful additions would be the herb Milk Thistle, Resveratrol (the wonder extract of grapes), Broccoli Sprout, Pomegranate extract, Green Tea, Ginseng extract and the ever useful Coenzyme Q10.

The addition of all of these really helps prepare our immune system to repel* these unwanted toxic invaders when our body is challenged by them.

Outstanding in its Own Field

One antioxidant formula that really fits the bill here is Tony Quinn’s Educohealth Cell Rejuvenation Mix. It has all of the above ingredients and more. This formula really packs a punch. 

For those with low energy, it helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. (Niacin/ Vitamin B3, Magnesium and Vitamin C).

If cognitive performance and sexual health are issues for you it helps support both. (Panax Ginseng).

For immune health, Vitamins A, B12, B6, C, D and the mineral Zinc, play an important part.

It also helps contribute to the health of normal skin, (collagen synthesis), nails, bones, gums, teeth and hair. (Vitamin C,   Zinc).

All in all, it’s a very rounded antioxidant/multivitamin formula. 

Mobilize Your Troops

So as our internal battle continues throughout the whole of our life, it swings from health to illness intermittently throughout this time.

Why not do yourself a favour and consciously support your body’s defensive troops to help them best keep you in a state of good health.

There’s nothing like looking and feeling well. 

When you look in the mirror and see that glow of health, it gives you such a lift.

Don’t you think then that it is a good idea to invest in the best of yourself?

Let Cell Rejuvenation Mix help you in this. When you do you will realize why it has been so popular with our customers for the last 15 years.

Vitamin C – A Life-Saver That Helped Change our World

It helped save British sailor’s lives, great scientists raved about it and we would be dead (Lost) without its vital immune support.

The Magic ingredient is Vitamin C.

This wonder nutrient first came to prominence back in the 1700s. During this time the British Navy had a huge problem with their sailors dying from the disease scurvy.

During the “Age of Exploration” (from 1500 to early 1800’s) it is reputed that almost 2,000,000 seamen died of scurvy.

Legendary explorer Vasco da Gama’s crew fell foul to scurvy in 1499.

A staggering 116 of his 170 men died mostly due to scurvy.

The famous explorer Magellan too fell foul to scurvy in 1520 with 208 of his 230 strong crew, mainly falling to scurvy.

During the 18th century alone more British sailors died of disease than from military action.

Royal Navy surgeon James Lind discovered when he gave the men vitamin C-rich oranges and limes they had a remarkable recovery. Up to this scurvy claimed the lives of many sailors on almost all long voyages.

Not long afterward the British Navy adopted a policy of including citrus juice in the men’s daily rations.

This led to the nickname ‘Limeys’ given to the British sailors.

This led to the end of the scourge of scurvy.

Nobel Prize Winner

One of the big champions of the benefits of Vitamin C was Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Linus Pauling.

Pauling wrote several books including Vitamin C the common cold and the flu and Cancer and Vitamin C.

Pauling himself was such a fan that he personally took in up to 10,000 mg of vitamin C a day to help keep him operating at his best.

He was an American Icon: Two time Nobel Prize winner, chemist, chemical engineer, and peace activist. New Scientist dubbed him one of the 20 greatest scientists of all time.

Albert Einstein said of him “Ah that man is a real genius”

In later years Pauling discovered the immense health possibilities of Vitamin C.

This led him to devote much of the latter part of his years to promoting the benefits Vitamin C and orthomolecular medicine (the practice of maintaining human health through the use of nutritional supplements).

It obviously worked well for him as he lived productively to the ripe old age of 93.

The Brilliant Mind that Discovered Vitamin C

The person who first discovered Vitamin C was brilliant Hungarian Physiologist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi. This amazing man won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1937 for this great discovery.

A staunch believer in human rights he donated his prize money to the Finnish resistance to the Russian invasion of their country in 1939. 

He helped bring to light the amazing benefits to be had.

Particularly interesting is his work in relation to serious illness research and the potential protective support Vitamins C and E could give to the damaging effect of free radicals on the cells.

He too lived to the ripe old age of 93.

What is Vitamin C?

It is a water-soluble nutrient found in many fruits and vegetables.

Unlike most animals, humans don’t produce their own Vitamin C. We need to get it either from our food or from a food supplement.

It performs a multitude of actions in our body among them it contributes to the normal function of the immune system, skin, cartilage, nervous system, collagen formation, teeth, and gums.

It also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and the normal functioning of the nervous system.

Altogether it is a big hitter in our body’s natural defense system to help keep us at our healthiest.

When given to those poor sailors it helped produce some startlingly good results.

Vitamin C in the Modern World

Today the practice of taking Vitamin C in supplemental form is pretty widespread. Just do an internet search and you get all this information on all different types.

 It can often be linked to other searches for liquid collagen, collagen peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, collagen protein, etc

A Standout Performer

The beauty industry has long been aware of the benefits of Vitamin C in relation to collagen support.

 In that time they have explored the different types of this Vitamin until usually settling for an oil-soluble form of Vitamin C called ascorbyl palmitate.

The big advantage of this form of Vitamin C over others is that being fat-soluble it lasts much longer in the body than conventional vitamin C.

Ascorbyl palmitate in the form of Radiance C gives all the usual benefits of Vitamin C but has the added benefit of more lasting performance.

Radiance C is also in capsule form which makes it easy to take.

Benefits to Be Had

If you are tired or fatigued Radiance C helps reduce both of these.

If you want your skin, teeth, gums, and collagen formation to be at their normal best Radiance C is a big player here.

In a time when so many people are concerned with their immune health Radiance C supplies important support to the immune system.

With many people going through a stressful time Radiance C is a valuable support for the normal function of the nervous system.

All told it is a great option to take if you want to be at your normal best.

Take the Next Step

The British sailors found it an answer to their prayers.

Those great minds helped bring its benefits to our lives.

It’s no wonder Vitamin C is probably the most widespread nutrient on the market today.

Try Radiance C yourself and see what they were talking about.

Your skin, gums, teeth, and immune system will be glad you did.
