Why does my spermidineLIFE subscription bottle come separate from my Autophagy pack?
Yes, spermidineLIFE bottle products are shipped from a different facility than the Authophagy Essentials line.
What are the benefits of taking Autophagy Essentials packs?
Frequent use of our packs will increase the amount of autophagy-activating molecules in your body. Autophagy is the molecular process of breaking down damaged or discarded cellular components to be reused as energy.
What is autophagy?
Autophagy is the molecular process of breaking down damaged or unusable cell components to be recycled as new energy. The concentration of the body's own spermidine also decreases with age. An accumulation of non-effective or toxic cell components are linked to age-related diseases in humans. By recycling these components, cells are able to self-regulate and return to optimal functioning.
What is Curcumin?
Curcuminoids are a group of compounds found in turmeric (Curcuma longa), a bright yellow spice that is a main ingredient in curry powder. The best-known curcuminoid is curcumin, which is responsible for the yellow color of turmeric. Curcuminoids have been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What are the benefits of Curcumin?
Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant derived from tumeric. It has been used for centuries to suppress inflammation and may help to protect the brain from age-related damage.
What is the difference between Curcumin and Turmeric?
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, and it is thought to be responsible for many of the health benefits due to its antioxidant properties. Turmeric is a root often used as a spice, and is a source of dietary fiber, vitamins C and E, and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.
How does Curcumin help with inflammation?
Curcumin is a compound derived from the spice turmeric that has been shown to suppress inflammation. It does this by blocking the activity of pro-inflammatory molecules and enzymes and by acting as an antioxidant. Curcumin has been reported to be used to help mitigate a wide variety of inflammatory conditions. It can also be used preventatively to reduce the risk of developing inflammation-related diseases.
What are the benefits of green tea extract?
The extract is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and autophagy-inducing properties. Autophagy is a cellular process that helps to maintain healthy cells by breaking down and recycling damaged proteins and molecules.
What is the difference between green tea extract and green tea?
Green tea is a hot drink made from steeping tea leaves in hot water. The tea leaves are from the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea has been consumed for centuries in China and Japan for its benefits, including weight loss, improved mental clarity, and a caffeine boost. Green tea is a source of antioxidants, which protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
Green Tea Extract is a form of plant-based compound derived from the green tea plant, called a catechin. Catechins act as antioxidants that may protect against cellular harm, combat inflammation, and help prevent certain chronic disorders. As a supplement, green tea extract is a concentrated source of the antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and flavonoids of green tea.
What is resveratrol?
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in red wine, grapes, blueberries, and other fruits. It is extracted from the skin of red grapes and has been shown to have health benefits, including reducing inflammation and promoting autophagy.
What are the benefits of resveratrol?
Resveratrol is extracted from the skin of red grapes and has been shown to have health benefits, including reducing inflammation and promoting autophagy.
What is berberine?
Berberine is a natural compound extracted from a variety of plants, including several species of the Berberis genus. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects.
How should I take the supplements?
We recommend taking all supplements at the same time everyday with a meal and enough water to wash down each supplement. The time of day is not so important as long as it remains consistent each day. While we recommend that the supplements are taken every 24 hours, you can split them up by taking some every 12 hours.
What are the benefits of berberine?
Berberine has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects. In recent years, berberine has been shown to promote autophagy, a process by which cells break down and recycle damaged or old proteins and organelles. This property of berberine makes it a potential treatment for conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases.
What is apigenin?
Apigenin is a type of flavonoid found in many plants, such as parsley, celery, chamomile, and thyme. Apigenin has been shown to possess a variety of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects and improved cardiovascular health. Apigenin provides these benefits is by inducing autophagy. Autophagy is a cellular process that helps remove damaged or aged cells and proteins from the body. By inducing autophagy, apigenin can help protect cells from damage and improve overall health.
Why do you recommend NMN and Apigenin together?
During the electron transport system in the mitochondria of cells, NAD+ plays and important cyclic roll. Essentially the more effect the re-cycling of existing NAD+ the better. There is evidence that to just continually supplement NAD+ looses its effectiveness and perhaps could become oxidative. Apigenin has been shown to block one of the key enzymes that prevents the recycling of NAD+. The combination of NMN and apigenin is designed to provide the best combination of NAD+ supplementation support through NMN and optimize recycling with apigenin.
