3 Nutritional Secrets for Longevity
Much as you may want to, you can’t freeze time and stop the aging process. However, there are certainly things that you CAN do to make your body and mind more healthy and youthful.
Today I’d like to share 3 nutritional secrets with you about how you can more effectively protect your cells from accelerated aging so you can experience better energy, less symptoms, and enjoy life more fully.
Lemon balm tea
Lemon balm tea fends off DNA damage (especially from radiation), increases your master cell protector (antioxidant), glutathione, and boosts brain health.
In the study on how lemon balm tea reduced cell damage, participants drank 2 cups/day for 30 days and significant improvements were shown. Lemon balm also boosts brain health by eliminating free radicals that damage brain cells (it contains eugenol, a powerful antioxidant). It also contains rosmarinic acid which has been shown to improve blood flow to the brain. Lemon balm has also been shown to improve GABA, a calming brain chemical that protects brain cells from over excitation which can result in cell death.
Reduce toxin exposure. Toxins are unavoidable and yet there’s so much you can do to protect your body against toxins and extend the life of your cells! When your cells get damaged, you can’t fight disease effectively and you certainly don’t feel your best.
Toxins include things like pesticides, heavy metals, and even household products like air fresheners (more on that another time!). You can reduce your toxin exposure by drinking plenty of clean, filtered water; eating organic food that’s free of pesticides and other toxic chemicals, sweating (exercise, sauna), and breathing clean air. What you do consistently and frequently adds up fast so dialing in your food, water, breathing, and movement makes a huge impact over time.
Replace key nutrients. I mentioned glutathione earlier. It’s your body’s master cellular protector. One of the building blocks your body needs to make glutathione is an amino acid called cysteine. It’s found in high amounts in animal protein (chicken, duck, turkey, pork, cottage cheese, yogurt, eggs, and ricotta) as well as broccoli, red peppers and onions.
Sulfur-rich foods like arugula, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and eggs are also needed to make glutathione.
When you approach your health with the attitude that your body was designed to be healthy and that how you take care of yourself really matters, it’s a game changer! Symptoms are common at any age. More and more I am seeing younger people struggling with their health. I also know it’s possible to be older in years and feel great in your body because I have clients who are living proof.
Use these 3 secrets to clear the path for your innate healing to occur so you can enjoy your life more fully.
