Nobody looks forward to ageing but it is one of the inevitable facts of life and, actually, if we are blessed with moving forward into older age, we should probably be grateful. Not everyone makes it this far! That doesn’t mean, though, that you have to settle for looking and feeling less than your best. Slowing down the ageing process is possible, and it isn’t as hard as you might think .
Whether you’re looking to keep your body feeling supple for longer, keeping your hair feeling long and strong, maintaining your brain health, reducing wrinkles and achieving younger looking skin, anti-ageing supplements can help you.
Here we outline some common signs that you’re ageing faster than you should be, and explain how LYMA’s formula can help to fight the ageing process head-on. If you’re looking for an anti-ageing supplement to trump all others, LYMA could be just what you’re looking for.
Signs that you’re ageing too fast (and how lyma can help)
1. Thinning hair
With age comes the natural breakdown of cells in the body. This includes the stem cells that trigger hair growth. When coupled with the build up of oxidative stress that accumulates in the body over the years, and you have a recipe for developing thinner, and more brittle, hair.
LYMA contains Cynatine® HNS, the world’s first solubilised, active keratin. Keratin is the major structural component that makes up hair, skin and nails, but it is not naturally soluble, bioavailable or digestible. LYMA’s superior delivery systems, however, ensure that it becomes all three, and that the keratin peptides are delivered directly to the skin, hair and nails to boost strength and appearance. Clinical studies have shown that people who supplemented with a daily dose of 500mg/day - the exact dosage formulated in LYMA - over three months saw a significant improvement in the appearance of their hair, skin and nails.
2. Developing fine lines and wrinkles
Wrinkles are caused by the enzymatic breakdown of structural proteins and depletion of the skin’s natural collagen levels, also known as ‘collagenases’. This breakdown is, unfortunately, inevitable and usually begins around the age of 25.
LYMA contains Lycored Lycopene™, an ultra-stable carotenoid (carotenoids are the pigments that make tomatoes red and carrots orange, and they contain a number of free radical-fighting, anti-inflammatory properties that can help fight ageing in humans). Lycored Lycopene™’s superpower when it comes to tackling lines and wrinkles is that it actively helps to inhibit collagenases, keeping wrinkles at bay and you looking younger for longer. LYMA’s Lycored Lycopene™ has been technology-enhanced to deliver you the best results in the shortest amount of time.
3. Sun spots
Age-related pigmentation is a common complaint in people who are ageing, and is typically caused by years of repeated sun exposure. Sun spots are typically characterised by dark, freckle-like, spots that appear on your hands, chest and face as you age.
The first course of action for anybody - whether you’re wanting to prevent sun spots developing or, if you already have sun spots, to ensure that you don’t develop any more - is to apply a protective layer of SPF every time you leave the house.
LYMA can help to turn the clock back on sun spots, and to help prevent them from developing in the first place. Lycored Lycopene™, as formulated at 30mg in LYMA, has been shown to mitigate sun damage by up to 50%, protecting the skin from succumbing to the UV damage that causes sun spots in the first place. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated in clinical studies to have a gentle lightening effect on skin, and can help to reduce discoloration and the appearance of dark patches, including sun spots.
4. Brittle bones
As you age, you may notice you become more susceptible to bone breakages and fractures. You may also find that you start to experience shin splints when running or walking. This is because, as you get older, your bone density decreases. Once this gets to a certain level it can be defined as osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis occurs when your body begins to draw on bone matter for its calcium supply, weakening the bones and making you more prone to injury. Whilst the process is natural, it is not a given that you should experience osteoporosis and there are supplements you can take to ensure your bones remain strong and in good working order.
LYMA contains two ingredients that are integral to maintaining bone strength: K2 VITAL® and Vita-algaeD3™. Our bodies cannot make either of these nutrients itself so it is vital that we supplement. It’s important to take vitamins K2 and D3 in tandem : vitamin D3 is responsible for absorbing and metabolising the calcium in the food we eat and for synthesising sunlight; and vitamin K2 is responsible for ensuring that the calcium is transported to the parts of the body that require it. Vitamin K2 ensures that metabolised calcium ends up where the body needs it most; the bones and teeth. Bone health should be a focus if you are active or ageing, and particularly if you are going through menopause .
5. Reduced brain health
Something that scares a lot of people about growing older is that their cognitive functioning will decline; that they will become forgetful, that their mental processing will slow down, and that they won’t be able to think as sharply as they once could.
Cognizin® is one of LYMA’s eight peer-reviewed, clinically-backed, patented ingredients, and is the world’s leading nootropic. Cognizin® has been implicated in improving memory, processing speed, focus and attention span in adults, has been shown to slow the onset of age-related cognitive impairment and could even prevent dementia . One particular study demonstrated that, after supplementing with 250mg/day of Cognizin® for just 28 days, middle-aged women saw significant improvements in a mental agility test, improved cognitive inhibition and faster recall, and improved attention span and central nervous system functioning.
Nobody wants to age, but LYMA can help you age better. If you want to look, feel and act younger for longer, you should start prioritising your health now.
