Symptoms of aging creep up on us
- By our mid 20’s, workout recovery slows down.
- In our 30’s, our skin develops fine lines while physical energy starts to noticeably decrease.
- By our 40’s and 50’s, muscle definition fades, and the feeling of vitality often tanks.
As far as our diet, combating the aging process with 1 or 2 magic bullet ingredients won’t cut it. Legit anti-aging nutrition requires complex nutrition, because aging is a complex process. Comprehensive anti-aging benefits is what our friends at Neurohacker Collective designed their new Eternus formula for: 36 ingredients (many of them very hard to find), that work together to attack aging 6 different ways, with a mountain of research to back up the ingredients in it.
So what are the 6 keys to slow down aging as much as possible? And how is the new Eternus formula designed to address all 6 needs?
1) Promote A Fitter Mitochondrial Network
If your mitochondria don’t function properly, your cells will struggle to produce energy. With insufficient energy being produced, you’ll feel more tired and lethargic [R].
And poor mitochondrial health doesn’t only cause physical sluggishness. It also is linked to brain fog and neurodegenerative diseases, while improving mitochondrial function may reverse these conditions [R, R, R].
The mitochondria also initiate the production of steroid hormones, including cortisol and all sex hormones. That’s why malfunctioning mitochondria can cause hormone imbalances [R].
Eternus has a multitude of ingredients with research correlating to various aspects of improved mitochondrial health and function, including resveratrol [R], lipoic acid [R], n-acetyl-L-cysteine [R], and Coq10 [R].
2) Boosts Production Of NAD+ & Optimize Your NAD+: NADH Ratio
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that consists of adenine and nicotinamide, and is found in all living cells.
NAD exists in two forms: NAD+ and NADH respectively. NADH contains 2 more electrons than NAD+.
Low NAD+ quickens aging. In mitochondria of young people, NADH can readily donate its electrons to generate NAD+. During the aging process, increased DNA damage reduces NAD+, leading to reduced SIRT1 activity and reduced mitochondrial function [R].
Supplementation with NAD+ intermediates, readily increases cellular and mitochondrial NAD+, and reverse many aging or disease processes associated with low NAD+ [R, R2]. There is strong evidence that B vitamin levels have direct correlations to NAD+ production [R], with niacinamide (B3) in particular showing a particularly strong correlation [R]. Eternus supplies a stack of B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and B12 vitamins in its formula.
While boosting NAD+ is a useful strategy, it’s also important to increase the NAD+ : NADH ratio. Increasing the cellular consumption of NADH is an additional lever toward that end. Calorie restriction induces an enzyme called Nrf2, which is considered to be a master regulator of cellular defense; it’s responsible for many cellular protection processes and involved in mitochondrial biogenesis (i.e., building new mitochondria).
3) Elevate Your ATP Levels
Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is a cell’s “energy carrier” or “energy store” molecule. This is true of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, although the ATP production mechanism differs across the two types. ATP is the main source of energy for most cellular processes.
Low ATP levels are often found in people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [R], and even moderate depletions of ATP have been linked to sizable increases in oxidative stress [R], while higher ATP levels have been correlated to increases in muscle mass [R] and increased capacity during high intensity activities [R].
Many ingredients in Eternus have been associated to increasing ATP levels including CoQ10 [R], and Eternus contains elevATP® specifically for that purpose, which contains a combination of trace minerals from ancient peat, including ionized magnesium and apple polyphenols, which has been correlated to increased ATP output in clinical studies [R].
4) Increase Your Upregulation Of Sirtuins
Sirtuins are a family of proteins critical to healthy aging. The regulate cellular health by performing critical biologic functions such as DNA expression.
When proteins are undergoing stress, acetyl groups are added to proteins as a response to changes induced by inflammation and oxidation.
Sirtuins remove these acetyl groups to keep the protein in service longer than usual, while simultaneously stabilizing the charge state of the carbon backbone in protein to resist any further changes in their shape. This allows your cellular proteins to live longer and you can save energy on other processes.
Sirtuins such as SIRT1 protects us from nitric oxide. When you have good SIRT1 levels and activity, nitric oxide will stimulate DNA repair genes (via deacetylation of FoxO1). Otherwise, nitric oxide will stimulate genes that will cause the cell to self-destruct (R).
Sirtuins play a major role in good sleep as well. SIRT1 regulates the strength (amplitude) and the duration of circadian gene expression in the retina by removing acetyl groups from key circadian clock regulators, such as BMAL1 and PER2.
Anything that increases NAD+, will increase SIRT1 activity. So I won’t relist the ingredients in Eternus which have already been listed to that end, but additionally, there is evidence that SIRT1 and SIRT3 activity increases from supplementation with lipoic acid,also found in Eternus, appearing to do so directly [R].
5) Activate AMPK
AMPK (5′ AMP-activated protein kinase) is an enzyme that plays a key role in energy balance. All creatures from yeast to humans have this enzyme (R).
AMPK can detect the level of energy (number of ATP molecules) in a cell and helps regulate responses when it gets too low or high.
AMPK is produced in a number of tissues, including the liver, brain, fat cells and muscle (R).
When cellular energy is low, AMPK is activated and targets a range of processes, the net response of which is an increase in energy production and a coordinated decrease in energy (ATP) usage (R).
6) Support Insulin Regulation
If you are insulin resistant, your brain will not get the message that insulin is trying hard to convey (that you have high levels of sugar in your bloodstream).
In this way, insulin resistance promotes hunger. You eat and insulin is released, but your body tells you to eat some more despite the ability of insulin to act as a satiety hormone. Hence why obesity is linked to brain insulin resistance [R].
When rats had their brain insulin receptors removed, they ate more, developed insulin resistance, and became obese [R]. There is a correlation between insulin resistance and fat accumulation in the liver [R].
Beyond a weight loss regimen and regular exercise, both of which can decrease insulin resistance, there are a number of supplement foods found in Eternus which can aid in this as well, such as magnesium [R], resveratrol [R], and lipoic acid [R].
