We can’t avoid getting older.
But even though we can’t stop the clock, we can make the ageing process more graceful with the help of a healthy lifestyle. What we put into our bodies is the most important aspect of long-term wellness and greatly impacts how our bodies feel and perform as time goes on.
At BIOVEA, we like to get all the help we can get when it comes to ingredients that help us feel and look better. Here are our favourite products that actually support longevity and graceful ageing:
Found in nearly every cell in the body, CoQ10 plays a vital role in cellular energy. Supplementing with CoQ10 is great for anti-ageing support because as we get older, natural CoQ10 production tends to decrease. This decrease can result in cardiovascular, eye, energy or skin problems.
Evidence shows that supplementing with CoQ10 may help combat high blood pressure, heart failure and other age-related health issues. 
This BioMedX Research formula is one of our favourite products to support mental health and energy. Combining more than five ingredients, including DMAE for memory, gingko biloba for its neuroprotective properties, B vitamins for concentration, ginseng for energy, and schisandra for mood, the combination ensures a supported nervous system as you age.
You’ve probably heard that vitamin E is good for you, but vitamin E is especially beneficial when it comes to anti-ageing support. Vitamin E is a renowned antioxidant that protects cells throughout the body from oxidative stress, resulting in a stronger immune system and supported heart health, which is crucial as you grow older. You can take a vitamin E supplement to support cardiovascular, eye health and overall health. You can also use it topically to support youthful, hydrated skin.
Packed with flavonoids, linoleic acid, vitamin E, and OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins), which are compounds that fight free radicals throughout the body, grape seed extract is a must-have antioxidant. Grape seed extract works to neutralise all the damaging free radicals we come in contact with every single day, and this neutralising supports a balanced body, strong immune system, and may help you avoid premature ageing.
This ingredient is known as the “Key to the Fountain of Youth” for good reason: It supports health, vitality and a fresh appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding compound, making it an effective skin-hydrating ingredient when used topically, and when ingested, it lubricates joints, cartilage and tissues throughout the body. A hydrated body is a key to longevity and healthy ageing, and hyaluronic acid ensures the body getting hydration where it’s needed.
