Summertime is a great time to shed excess weight. Unfortunately, as we age, it becomes harder to shed the pounds. You have to work hard at it, exercise daily and make the correct food choices.
Help from our friends
We need some help, and here is where the right nutrients can make a difference. A young cell is characterized by its energy production, just like a young body. As we age, our physical output decreases. To this end, I have looked for methods to increase energy, naturally and safely, at the cellular level. This has led me to a number of nutrients that work in a special way to enhance the loss of body fat, preserve muscle mass and regulate levels of blood sugar and insulin -- key attributes of a healthy, young body, regardless of chronological age. They will also promote beautiful, healthy, youthful-looking skin. Here are ten of my favorites:
1.Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha lipoic acid, often referred to as 'the universal antioxidant," is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory found naturally inside of the energy producing portion of the cell known as the mitochondria. Alpha lipoic acid enhances our ability to metabolize food into energy. ALA is a unique antioxidant because it is both fat and water soluble. This means it can go to all parts of the cell, including the lipid (fat) portions such as the cell plasma membrane, as well as the interior of the cell (known as the cytoplasm) where water soluble chemicals reside.
DMAE is a naturally occurring nutritional substance with
powerful anti-inflammatory properties; it is found in
fish including wild Alaskan salmon, anchovies and
sardines. DMAE is important in the production of
neurotransmitters, which are essential in the
communication from one nerve to another and between
nerves and muscles. Taking DMAE as a supplement will not
only improve your cognitive function by improving memory
and problem-solving ability, it will help increase skin
firmness and muscle tone -- important for anyone on a
weight loss or anti-aging program.
Glutamine is the body's most abundant amino acid. It
plays an important role in keeping the muscles
functioning properly and helps reduce muscle
deterioration. Glutamine literally drives
muscle-building nitrogen into the muscle cell where it
is synthesized for growth. It is also converted into
glucose when the body needs more energy. When the body
is in a highly inflammatory state, it breaks down our
muscle tissue to get the extra glutamine needed,
resulting in muscle mass loss.
