With thousands of supplements on the market for just about every ailment, we love the opportunity to provide information on which supplements are worth your time and which aren’t. Today, we are looking at three potent anti-aging beauty supplements we recommend to many of our patients here at Center for New Medicine.
Inflammation and oxidative stress are two significant factors that can negatively affect skin health. While each of the supplements below boasts many benefits, you will notice that each directly or indirectly helps reduce inflammation and boost antioxidant levels.
3 Anti-Aging Beauty Supplements
One of the few supplements that has been shown to be as effective as pharmaceutical drugs is Berberine. This anti-aging beauty supplement is an alkaloid that can be found in several plants‚ including Barberry‚ Oregon Grape‚ Golden Thread‚ and Goldenseal. Not surprisingly, Berberine has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Now, modern science is confirming the many purported benefits of this unique substance.
Benefits of Berberine include:
Powerful antioxidant to fight oxidative stress.
Can reduce inflammation.
Can help fight against parasitic, bacterial, fungal, and viral infections.
Can help maintain healthy blood lipid levels.
Can help reduce blood sugar levels.
Can aid in weight loss.
Can lower cholesterol and help prevent heart disease.
May help fight symptoms of depression.
Can help protect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
May help reduce the growth and spread of various cancers.
While many mushrooms contain powerful healing potential, Cordyceps are a favorite anti-aging beauty supplement here at Center for New Medicine. There are over 400 species of Cordyceps however, the most extensive research is around Cordyceps sinensis and Cordyceps militaris. Cordyceps sinensis is an expensive species to grown and as a result, most Cordyceps supplements are made from a synthetically grown version called Cordyceps CS-4.
Benefits of Cordyceps include:
Can increase energy.
Can reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Can improve exercise performance and stamina.
Can protect from physical and mental stress.
Can boost the immune system.
Can help balance thyroid and other hormones.
Can help neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage and skin aging.
At Center for New Medicine, we only produce the purest and most potent formulations which is why we created this 100% organic Cordyceps sinensis rather than the commonly used synthetic version.
Commonly found in seafoods, walnuts, along with certain seed and plant oils, omegas are fatty acids critical to optimal health, anti-aging, and beauty. There are several types of omega fatty acids which include omega-3’s, omega-6’s, and omega-9’s. Omega-3’s are some of the most impactful substances for skin health.
Benefits of Omega-3’s include:
May help protect against sun damage to skin cells.
Helps reduce inflammation.
Decrease oxidative stress.
Can reduce the severity of acne.
Helps protect against dry, red, itchy skin.
May help reduce symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, and inflammatory skin disorders.
Can accelerate wound healing.
Can reduce the risk of skin cancer.
Can help reduce hair loss and boost new hair growth.
