Longevity is designed to be a daily antioxidant maintenance program to protect the body. Antioxidants are must-haves to fight off free radicals that disrupt and destroy cells. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging. Free radicals are linked to aging and a host of diseases. So antioxidants daily are an important part of fighting free radicals in the body. This supplement helps fight damaging effects from diet, aging and environment. The precision delivery softgel releases in the intestine (not the stomach where acids breakdown the constituents) for optimal absorption and minimal aftertaste. Gary used to speak about Longevity, saying that it was a MUST TAKE DAILY for anyone... #cuzFrankincense.
Longevity is a fat-soluble antioxidant and while Ningxia Red is primarily a water-soluble antioxidant and we need both!
What is the difference between Ningxia Red and Longevity? Well, both are powerful antioxidants… but the only similar ingredient is Orange essential oil. Longevity includes Orange, Thyme, Clove and Frankincense essential oils.
-THYME: Studies** show that thyme essential oil maintains DHA levels in the brain, liver, heart, and kidneys of aging subjects. Low DHA levels are associated with a loss of focus and memory, unclear thinking, and mood alterations. Test subjects receiving a daily dose of thyme oil had higher levels of DHA than those who did not take the supplement.
-CLOVE: Nature’s strongest antioxidant and richest source of eugenol. (Check out your Essential Oil Pocket reference for all the cool benefits)
- ORANGE: Contains 90 percent d-limonene, which promotes healthy liver function. (Thats why i love adding Orange vitality to my water with Lemon Vitality daily)
-FRANKINCENSE: supports cell health and immune function. (Google the benefits and you'll be sold on Frankincense in your daily life, just like I was!)
