Healthy Ageing - Healthy You
A Guide for a long and vital life

An apple a day…

Since ancient times, people are longing for the gift of eternal youth. This is manifested for instance in the motif of the fountain of youth in diverse myths. A bath in it or drinking its water is said to wash away the ailments of age.

Today it is evident that indeed our diet plays a pivotal role for healthy ageing.

Ongoing improvement of healthcare, living standards and increasing knowledge about the impact of individual behaviour like physical activity and adequate nutrition positively affect our life expectancy – and our claim for a good quality of life, no matter how old we are.

The process of ageing – behind the scenes

Ageing, from a scientific perspective, results from the accumulation of cellular and molecular damage over time, with theories pointing to oxidative damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, and cellular senescence as key factors.

Cellular senescence occurs when telomeres, DNA sequences at chromosome ends, shorten due to cell division and oxidative damage, leading to cell cycle arrest. Accumulating senescent cells appear to limit tissue regeneration and promote chronic inflammation, often termed "inflammaging."

Exogenous factors such as smoking, high-fat and sugar diets and UV light can accelerate these ageing processes.

Telomeres, important role in healthy ageing

… and what’s the good news?

Our organism itself possesses the capacity to fight oxidative stress with antioxidants. In this respect, our diet has a decisive influence. Plant-based diets deliver a plethora of secondary plant metabolites that may positively influence health. Among them, the class of flavonoids are recognised as powerful antioxidants and rendered as main reason for the health benefits from consumption of fruits and vegetables. One subclass of flavonoids, the anthocyanins, are well-known as potent radical scavengers and responsible for the blue and violet colour. So fruits with a high anthocyanins concentration are an important food source for healthy ageing.

Beauty from within

When it comes to ageing, we often focus on the visible signs like wrinkles and age spots. The sun's UV rays speed up these changes, making our skin age faster. Fragmentation of the dermal collagenous matrix promotes wrinkle formation and pigmentation may become uneven with so-called age spots.

Oxidative stress plays a central role in the structural alterations of the skin in both photo-ageing as well as chronological ageing. Delphinol®, a powerful antioxidant, can help maintain skin vitality by countering the effects of light exposure and slowing down ageing-related changes. As a nutritional supplement, Delphinol® supports vibrant skin, reduces redness, and supports firmness and elasticity. Delphinol® clearly promotes the beauty from within and thereby the overall well-being.

Metabolic Balance

Age is one of the most important factors of change in terms of energy metabolism: as it slows down, it becomes crucial to balance energy levels. Managing blood sugar becomes key to prevent spikes and enhance insulin sensitivity.

Inflammation is also a factor in age-related diseases, but a balanced diet can help reduce inflammation, preserving health in later life.

Clinical data show that Delphinol® has great potential for a healthy glucose metabolism. It delays glucose absorption after eating carbs or sugars, helping to avoid post-meal crashes. Delphinol® also stimulates in vitro the release of the satiety hormone GLP-1. Both findings imply that Delphinol® can help curb cravings and keep blood sugar levels within normal ranges.

 

Bone Health

Loss of bone mass and osteoporosis are well-known concomitants related to ageing. Our bones undergo constant remodeling throughout life, but as we get older, bone density decreases. For both women and men, this process can start as early as the 30s and worsen during menopause.

In pre-clinical studies, Delphinol® not only inhibited the formation of bone-resorbing cells but also stimulated the formation of osteoblasts, the bone-building cells. Moreover, Delphinol® prevented loss of bone mass and reversed significant changes in bone architecture by stimulation of bone formation. This makes Delphinol® a unique ingredient for nutritional supplements supporting strong bones.

The Path to Youthful Aging: Beauty, Metabolic Balance, and Bone Health

EMBRACE THE YEARS

Healthy aging is a journey worth paying attention to, and it is about more than just counting the years. It is about feeling your best and maintaining your inner beauty. Incorporate the following tips into your everyday life so that you can age gracefully and enjoy a more vibrant future.

FIND YOUR INNER GLOW

  • Nutrition: Incorporate foods rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids to support your skin health. Drinking an adequate amount of water is also very important to maintain your skin’s elasticity.
  • Telomere support: Our telomeres also play an important role in ageing. Telomere shortening increases the risk of wrinkles. With healthy ageing in mind, supplements like Delphinol® can help to protect telomeres.
  • Positive attitude to life: A positive outlook can do wonders for your appearance. Surround yourself with positivity, spend your free time with people who make you happy and do activities you love.

FIND THE RIGHT BALANCE

  • Regular Exercise: Make physical activity part of your daily routine. Even a brisk walk or simple stretching exercises can do wonders for your metabolic balance.
  • Intestinal Health: A healthy gut is crucial for metabolic health. Consume foods rich in fiber, prebiotics, and probiotics to support your gut health.
  • Indulge foods in moderation: Enjoying the occasional treat is fine, but moderation is key. Excessive consumption of alcohol and sugar can upset your metabolic balance. For even better blood sugar regulation, consider supplements containing anthocyanin-rich ingredients such as Delphinol®.

FIND YOUR INNER STRENGTH

  • Nutritious diet: Maintain bone health with a diet rich in bone strengthening nutrients. Calcium, vitamin D3, and vitamin K1 are essential for strong bones.
  • Lifestyle habits: Quit smoking to protect your bone health. Smoking can weaken bones and increase the risk of fractures. It is also advisable to get enough restful sleep. Aim for about 7-8 hours of sleep each night to support bone regeneration.
  • Movement in everyday life: Regular physical activity can strengthen your bones. Activities such as cycling, gymnastics, brisk walking or yoga can help to maintain bone health.
