Supplements to take for Anti-Aging

I have always strongly believed that what we put in our body effects the way we look and feel.Having a healthy diet ,drinking lots of water and taking vitamins and supplements are a great way to get your skin glowing and ultimately feel better.

Why not make a new years resolution to start making more healthy changes? You could be using the best wrinkle cream ,but it will not work if you are eating unhealthy or missing vital vitamins your body need.

So take advantage of those great sales on at the drug store and stock up soon on the ones in this list-

 1-Vitamin E-The main thing this vitamin does is protect the skin and other cell structures in your body from free radical damage. Some researchers believe that vitamin E is the most important of all the anti aging antioxidants – the master vitamin.
The vitamin is needed for proper functioning of the immune system and healthy red blood cells it is also proven in studies to help with the arteries,heart,cancer,arthritis,and even reduce cataracts.

Buying a supplement will give you the highest level but also the best food sources are: sunflower seeds (and oil), almonds, olive oil and olives, papaya, avocado and to a lesser degree – spinach and blueberries.(i am sitting here eating sunflower seeds as i type this hahaha)

Also remember a regular multi-vitamin does not contain enough vitamin e,usually only around 30UIs so it is wise to take it seperate at least another 100 to 400IUs per day to get the benefits.

here is a great article you can read to learn more of its anti-aging properties -

is one of the most important minerals for your health and for anti aging,sadly the foods we eat do not usually give us enough so taking a supplement is needed especially if you do not eat meat(as i do not )as that is where is mostly found like in fish and red meat.

Benefits of selenium come from the fact that the body uses it to make something called glutathione peroxidase. Glutathione peroxidase is a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells from oxidative stress, and prevents the DNA damage that can cause cancer.
It is recommended that adults take 400UIs per day.

Do you take any vitamins or supplements and why ??


  1. I do take take vitamins but ones that keep my brain healthy - i.e. vitamin b12 and omega 3 supplements. But I used to buy the same vitamin e you have in your picture, pop it by sticking a needle in it, then take the vitamin e oil and apply it over my face for 30 mins to 1 hour.

  2. I think what our body needs is filled up bu supplements. Stress is one factor why most of us looks aged. Thanks for sharing your blog.

  3. Excellent post I must say.. Simple but yet entertaining and engaging.. Keep up the awesome work!
    Taking a supplement isn't actually a bodybuilding requirement. If your diet is adequate, you don't need to canadian supplements it to build muscle. But there are different opinions out there on whether supplements are helpful.

  4. “You could be using the best wrinkle cream, but it will not work if you are eating unhealthy or missing vital vitamins your body need.” – Very true! You have to start from the inside if you want to that glowing beauty. The cream and make-up can only do so much as covering the exteriors of your skin. What you need are properties that will help restructure your damage cells which is the cause of aging and chronic diseases. Hope @
