Best Anti-Aging Supplements & Essential Oils that work [Available in Kenya]
Anti-aging supplements are so many that we have to be specific which areas of aging we are targeting.
Example, supplements effective for the skin & face could be different from those effective against joint (arthritis) and skeletal system aging signs like osteoporosis.
Anti-aging skin supplements could be different from those effective in hormonal changes caused by aging. Having said that, some supplements like collagen peptides are effective in most areas of aging.
For the sake of this article, we will focus on skin anti-aging supplements in order of effectiveness. Then at the bottom, we will include the most effective combination.
Collagen Anti-Aging Supplement
Collagen peptides powder is probably one of the best anti-aging supplement known. This tasteless supplement that blends in with any drink like tea or coffee is effective in skin, eyes, joints, bones and gut health as an anti-aging supplement.
There are different types and kinds of collagen. Example, Collagen type 1, 3 & 4 are best for skin, hair, and guts. Collagen type 2 is best for bones, joints, and disc cartilage
Alpha Lipoic Acid as Anti-Aging Supplement
Alpha-lipoic acid to help prevent certain kinds of cell damage in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid also restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E and vitamin C.
It is also evidence that alpha-lipoic acid can improve the function and conduction of neurons in diabetes.
Taking a specific product containing alpha-lipoic acid (Reduced Glutathione) and other ingredients seems to improve elasticity and reduce wrinkles and roughness of aging skin.
Hyaluronic Acid os is popularly known in anti-aging cosmetics, especially when mixed with Vitamin-C Serum. Applied to the skin, it reduces wrinkles, sun damage and dark spots caused by overexposure to the sun.
Plastic surgeons use hyaluronic acid as a lip filler to rejuvenate lips, especially after menopause. Joint health surgeons inject hyaluronic acid straight to the joint to treat arthritis and joint pain.
In fact, taking Hyaluronic acid supplement by mouth not only makes the skin look younger but can also cure joint pain in as little as a week 👍. I am sure no doctor has ever told you such a cheap supplement is more effective for joint pain than pharmaceutical drugs.
Gamma Linoleic Acid Anti-Aging Supplements
Gamma-linoleic Acid are special oils belonging to Omega six classification. There are three popular Gamma Linoleic acids in order of their strength:
Taking Gamma linoleic acid with Omega -3 can reverse visible signs of aging and sun damage in as little as two weeks. It comes with other benefits like clearing acne, regular menstrual cycles (women), relieve of diabetic nerve pain and many more benefits.
Beta Carotene Anti-Aging Supplement
Beta-carotene is an essential nutrient found predominantly in algal species and in yellow, orange, and dark green vegetables. You may have heard about carrots and carotene.
Taking beta carotene as supplements have been shown to reduce signs of aging. Beta-carotene also tames acne. Be careful overdosing on beta carotene and foods rich in vitamin-A as it can cause problems
Anti-Aging Supplement Stack Recommendation
Let me start off by saying that there is no single miracle bullet that can prevent us from aging. Aging is a natural process that we all must go through. However, we can slow or even reverse [VISIBLE] signs of aging with supplements and cosmetics.
Must have Anti-Aging Supplements in your stack!
Besides the supplements discussed here, there are some supplements that you must take as core supplements for almost any health or beauty issue you may have. Without them, nothing will work.
These are the anti-oxidant supplements namely Vitamin-C, Vitamin-E, Glutathione, and Vitamin-D3 (not an antioxidant).
It is recommended to take anti-aging supplement blends that have more than one ingredient.
Example: For Flawless skin for people under age 35
👉 Take Reduced Glutathione (has milk thistle and Alpha lipoic acid) and a choice between Borage oil or Collagen Peptides.
👉 If you have acne prone oily skin, apply retinol cream at night and a good sunscreen during the day.
Best Anti-aging Supplements For Women Between 35-45
At age 35 and up, almost everyone has visible signs of aging and a lot of sun damage to the skin. It is about time to do catch-up game!
👉 For everyone, regardless of your skin type, your skin is losing collagen, fast. Take Collagen peptides twice a day with your favorite drink.
👉 Limit or eliminate sugar, milk, and gluten (you will be amazed). Add a green veggie smoothie once or twice a day. NEVER drink fruit smoothies. They load you up with sugar!
👉 Add Omega-3 & Gamma Linoleic Acid. I would suggest you use Omega 3-6-9 blend that has all essential Omega oils.
👉 If your libido is going down (most women at this age suffer this) and you do not have PCOS, add DHEA or see our recommended libido supplements list. We are recommending DHEA over other libido boosters because it has both libido benefits and anti-aging benefits.
At this age, signs of aging skin are there in 100% of all people. If you cannot see them, others can! At this age, age-related diseases like diabetes, blood pressure, etc start to creep in.
For women, estrogen hormone is in a free fall decline. Lips get thinner and wrinkled. Eye wrinkles (crow feet) are evident and deeper when smiling or laughing. Libido is even lower. Vaginal dryness and vaginal wall thinning are there, causing uncomfortable intercourse.
👉 It is time you started DHEA supplement. This has both anti-aging and libido boosting properties.
👉 Collagen peptides is almost a MUST have in your supplements stack. You need to build back your skin elasticity.
👉 You almost cannot do without Omega oils, especially Gamma Linoleic Acid. Without taking omega supplements, you can be guaranteed you are NOT AGING gracefully. Consider heavier concentrations of Omega-3 with EPA & DHA. Read this article about Omega Oils.
👉 Your nerves are also declining. Slower reaction time, memory decline and mood changes. It is time to add CoQ10 in form of Ubiquinol in your stack.
👉 Your anti-aging skin care is more specific. You cannot rely on just about any cream from the streets. You need a complete anti-aging kit with 4 step system.
