Life Extension GEROPROTECT Ageless Cell
Ingredients selected in silico
The term 'in silico' stands for 'with a computer', as 'in vitro' stands for 'in a test tube'. Life Extension developed the GEROPROTECT Ageless Cell formula in collaboration with Insilico Medicine. They searched databases with more than 200 ingredients that may contribute to healthy ageing. The four most interesting ingredients are found in GEROPROTECT Ageless Cell.
Cell protection from vitamin E
A diet rich in antioxidants helps you stay vital longer. An important nutritional antioxidant is Vitamin E. GEROPROTECT Ageless Cell contains pure D-alpha tocopherol, the natural form of Vitamin E. Tocotrienol is a phytophore that is very similar to tocopherol and is a good complement to it.
Benefits of vitamin E
- To stay vital during ageing
- To maintain healthy cells and tissues
- To protect against free radicals
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine: building block of glutathione
Each capsule contains a generous amount of NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine). NAC is a derivative of the sulphur-containing amino acid cysteine. It is an important building block of the body's own substance glutathione.
Glutathione from supplements is almost completely broken down in the intestines before it can be absorbed. To support the body's own production of glutathione, supplementation with NAC is therefore a good choice.
Green tea with 45% EGCG
Polyphenols are valuable substances found in fruit and vegetables. The leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) also contain polyphenols. One of the best known polyphenols in green tea is the substance EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). The presence of EGCG is the main reason for adding green tea extract to antioxidant-rich supplements.
The green tea extract in GEROPROTECT Ageless Cell is free of caffeine. Because the tea leaves are steamed briefly according to a special process, the active substances in green tea are preserved. The extract is standardised at 45% EGCG. This means that it is of constant quality and more concentrated than a non-standardised extract.
Myricetin from Myrica cerifera
The plant Myrica cerifera is also called Southern Bayberry. The active component myricetin belongs (like the better known Quercetin) to the flavonols. Myricetin also occurs naturally in walnuts, berries, grapes and herbs.
