Antioxidants: The Surprising Truth About Anti-Aging Supplements

For years, it’s been a commonly held notion that free radicals were mainly the cause of aging. With that thinking in mind, most anti-aging products and anti-aging supplements on the market have targeted those same free radicals with their antioxidant counterparts.



If you take a look at almost any anti-aging product—whether it’s anti-aging supplements or an anti-aging serum—you’ll be sure to find some mention of antioxidants and their touted ability to fend off free radicals.



While it’s important to counteract free radicals with antioxidants, free radicals aren’t the only cause of aging. There are, in fact, nine root causes of aging that antioxidants alone cannot address. Lumity anti-aging supplements have been formulated to specifically address nine of the root causes of aging through a scientifically targeted blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and proprietary complexes.

What Are The Nine Scientific Causes of Aging that Anti-Aging Supplements Should Address?


Beyond oxidative damage—the damage that free radicals inflict on the body—there is the buildup of cellular debris, which can hamper your cells’ optimum functioning, leading you to feel fatigued physically and fuzzy mentally.



Another major cause of aging is glycation, which damages collagen and depletes skin of its natural moisturizer, hyaluronic acid. Glycation, at its core, is the haphazard bonding of proteins or lipids with sugar to form non-functioning structures called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs). Those AGEs have been implicated in the breakdown of collagen and elastin and have also been known to play a part in some degenerative diseases as well as cardiovascular disease.



Telomere shortening, another root cause of aging, leads to cell death. Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, and as your cells divide, they grow shorter and shorter until they are lost completely. The speed at which telomeres shorten and your cells die is indicative of the body’s rate of aging.



DNA damage plays a vital role both in the overall aging process as well as in the proliferation of degenerative diseases. When DNA becomes damaged or mutates, it either does so infrequently dividing cells, or it does so in infrequently dividing cells, which can lead to a number of different age-related conditions. In any case, DNA damage ultimately results in degeneration.



Inflammation, which everyone experiences from time to time, may also result in degeneration and has been shown to have a correlation with many degenerative diseases. Inflammation takes its toll by waging a low-grade attack on the body from within and impairing the functioning and repair of tissues and cells. Over time, that impairment accelerates aging significantly.



At the cellular level, the mitochondria is the powerhouse. It provides the majority of the vital energy to the cell, and in doing so, it also produces free radicals. Mitochondria are particularly susceptible to free radical damage, so as the body ages, your cells start to ration that energy, and the result is cellular energy decline, yet another root cause of aging and one of the reasons that your body may become more prone to disease as you grow older.



Insulin resistance is a penultimate cause of aging. It’s the over-activation of insulin—generally due to poor diet—that causes cells to be resistant to insulin, and that resistance may lead to obesity and other degenerative diseases that worsen as we age.



Finally, one of the main reasons we age is hormonal decline. Human growth hormone (HGH) surges during youth, and it repairs, renews, and regenerates all of the body’s essential tissues. As time wears on, human growth hormone production declines, which may lead to a loss of youthfulness and vitality. The slump in production of HGH may also contribute to an increase in body fat, a reduction in muscle tissue, and a lack of elasticity in skin, which can further contribute to wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin.



To combat all nine of those root causes of aging, it’s going to take more than your average antioxidant supplement. It’s going to take a revolutionary anti-aging supplement that’s been scientifically formulated to help you look and feel better from the inside out.

How Anti-Aging Supplements Can Help Combat


Years of research have gone into the identification of nine of the major causes of aging—as well as into their respective solutions. Lumity doesn’t just offer up a megadose of powerful antioxidants like other anti-aging supplements. Instead, it works with your body’s natural processes to help it heal, repair, and protect itself. Lumity combines an ideal balance of vitamins, minerals, and proprietary complexes to help your body help itself.



Lumity is entirely free of artificial colors, flavors, and dyes. It also contains no stimulants or caffeine, no melatonin, no dairy or eggs, no gluten, no preservatives, no sugar, no synthetics, no sulfites, no soy, no parabens, no wheat, no yeast, and no petrochemicals.



What does Lumity contain that sets it apart from other anti-aging supplements? For one thing, its powerful anti-aging ingredients are already emulsified in natural flaxseed oil. Unlike other anti-aging vitamin and mineral supplements, Lumity can be taken on an empty stomach.



Because its effective ingredients are all emulsified, this unique anti-aging supplement not only won’t irritate your stomach’s lining, but it also goes to work much faster than other anti-aging supplements. In just 4 to 6 minutes, the softgel capsules completely dissolve, allowing the key nutrients to be absorbed almost immediately.



What are those key nutrients, and how do they help stave off nine of the causes of aging?



For starters, the flaxseed oil in Lumity works double-time to suspend the other ingredients as it works tirelessly to help protect all cell membranes. Flaxseed oil contains alpha-linolenic acid, which, as an omega-3 fatty acid, helps to reduce inflammation, lower insulin levels, increase skin radiance, improve cardiovascular health, increase energy levels, and so much more.



Vitamin A, another essential ingredient in Lumity, works both as an antioxidant, helping to combat free radical damage, and also works with your body as a fat-soluble vitamin to aid in vision health, healthy skin production, as well as healthy scalp, hair, teeth, and bones.



A water-soluble vitamin, vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps the body protect against free radical damage, and it also works with your body to help produce and maintain collagen for more youthful skin. Vitamin C helps to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, fine lines, and age spots. It also works with your adrenal gland to help increase your ability to deal with stress.



Vitamin E helps protect cell membranes against oxidation, one of the nine scientific causes of aging. It can also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease when taken in proper doses. Overdosing on vitamin E, however, can be harmful, which is why Lumity contains just the right amount to be beneficial.



Iodine is an essential trace element that assists in the maintenance of healthy skin, teeth, and hair. It also plays a vital role in both metabolism and hormone production.



Widely considered an anti-stress mineral, magnesium helps to restore youthful energy levels and eliminate fatigue. It has been shown to be instrumental in relieving the effects of nerve and muscle conditions, such as cramps, anxiety, and general moodiness.



Selenium works hard on its own to protect cells against harmful free radicals, oxidative damage, and DNA damage. It also teams up well with vitamin E to help contribute to the increase of antibody formation.



Another anti-aging power player, zinc is thought to be involved in more body functions than any other mineral. Zinc has been shown to be instrumental in the maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and nails.



Turmeric, a spice that’s been used medicinally for thousands of years, contains curcumin, which works with the body to counteract chronic inflammation. Turmeric has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, and it also functions as an antioxidant.



Also, an anti-inflammatory agent, coenzyme q10 (also known as CoQ10) supports the energy production within almost every cell in the body. When CoQ10 levels are boosted in the body, it can aid in the ability to lose body fat and increase energy levels over time.



Acetyl-l-carnitine is an amino acid that helps to repair existing age-induced DNA damage while also protecting against future damage. It can also help with the regulation of insulin production in the body. This anti-aging amino acid works together with all of the other powerful antioxidants in Lumity to help improve bone density, increase energy levels, prevent muscle loss, and improve and maintain general cognition and other vital brain functions.



Yet another beneficial, anti-aging amino acid, l-cysteine helps to replenish intracellular levels of the antioxidant glutathione. L-cysteine also works hard to block glycation and the formation of AGEs, which can, in turn, help to maintain a healthy level of collagen, which can help ensure lasting youthful skin firmness and elasticity.



Arginine, another anti-aging amino acid, has been linked to the improved release of human growth hormone (HGH), which may contribute to several vital anti-aging functions, from increasing the elasticity of the skin to reducing body fat levels and so much more.



An essential amino acid that is required for several functions throughout the body, lysine helps to delay aging by helping to increase collagen levels and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been shown to aid in serotonin production, thereby helping to reduce anxiety and increase the body’s ability to cope with stress.



When taken in conjunction with arginine and lysine, glutamine can help to increase HGH levels as well as glutathione (a natural, powerful antioxidant) stores in the body.



Alanine is an amino acid and a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the tone and mass of your muscles and maintain the youthful, glowing, firm appearance and feel of your skin. It’s also effective in helping combat against glycation, one of the nine scientific causes of aging.





Could you gain all of these anti-aging benefits from taking each of these supplements individually? In the correct proportions, maybe. But going to those lengths would not only be more costly, but it would also be remarkably inefficient, potentially dangerous (as you could overdose on certain supplements), and likely not as effective as the Lumity 2-step process.



Why would you settle for anything less than natural radiance?



Lumity anti-aging supplements are backed by years of scientific research and testing to get the ideal balance of ingredients that work with your body to help produce incredible results.
