PROMOTING HEALTH AND ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS
I’m often asked if I feel its acceptable to “sell”as a professional. Clearly there’s a balance, but we sell “good health” all day long – why not some means of getting there?
There is a need to promote health care , maintenance and preventative means and products on the internet. There is a presently unmet need to serve those looking for information and products. This is an area of interest that I believe demands attention.
Promoting antioxidants, health and anti-aging online.
There is a need to promote health care , maintenance and preventative means and products on the internet. There is a presently unmet need to serve those looking for information and products. Here is an area of interest that I believe demands attention.
As has been mentioned, in my opinion health is not simply the absence of disease’ but more of health in absolute terms, and again in my opinion, the role of antioxidants in anti-aging is likely to act in both this role and in the prevention of disease, especially inflammatory based diseases.
Antioxidants, and disease prevention
Many diseases have been implicated in antioxidants preventative role, but clearly individual results will differ. Again, in my opinion, since “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” this is an area that should be investigated and using current understanding, taken action on.
Unfortunately, antioxidants appear to have less financial, traditional and governmental support than patentable “cures” i.e. antibiotics, and these papers rarely reach the “peer reviewed” journals, just as with mechanical out-dated jaw position determination over physiologically determined techniques.
An example is that although as a practicing dentist of over 40 years, with an interest in prevention and a great belief in the value of antioxidants in (periodontal therapy)and in gum health and possibly assistance in prevention of disease. I have heard few clinicians mention this, apart from a few academics – Dr. Chapple is a champion in this respect.
It’s rare that any practicing dentist recommends this approach (there must be, I’m just not aware of any). This may partly be that although literature, studies and common-sense support it, dentists may not know about appropriate combination and dosage.
Unfortunately, antioxidants appear to have less financial, traditional and governmental support than patentable “cures” i.e. antibiotics, and these papers rarely reach the “peer reviewed” journals, just as with mechanical out-dated dental techniques in jaw position is still widely used.
Where do I get my antioxidants from?
Clearly naturally occurring foods must play a part, it may well be, that without a reasonable diet, the effects of antioxidants may not be optimized. On the other hand, studies show clearly that to get optimal and appropriate antioxidants is not possible by way of diet alone.
Supplementation of a healthy diet becomes appropriate for those wishing to optimize their types, combinations and doses of antioxidants.
Are Antioxidant supplements of any benefit?
Now, here we hit a psychological barrier. Commercial concerns are still at work and while the outlook, beliefs and ethics of pharmaceutical giants may be excessive (please forgive my cynicism), they have muddied the water for many healthcare providers.
Many doctors (strangely enough) believe everything that multinational pharmaceutical drug manufacturers claim, yet won’t give consideration to other more studied, and better proven nutraceuticals, products.
A nutraceutical product is defined as a “food, or parts of a food, that provide medical or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease”.
What antioxidants do people need?
Generally, antioxidants in the right form, with the right diet, in the right combination and the right dose.
How do I know I’m getting the antioxidants I need and at the right dosage? You don’t, sometimes you have to rely on commonsense and a balanced view of the “pros and cons”.
I like and use Pharmanex antioxidant supplements myself, hence the product’s inclusion below. I like the standard LIFEPAK as a base for a daily regimen. If you want to know how to provide this service, please contact me – there is a need and a want to be healthier!

It’s certainly true that it’s likely beneficial and safe to take (reasonable) amounts of specific antioxidants in the reasonable belief of gain, e.g. Vitamin C, but where do you go from there. Co-enzyme Q10, Lipoic acid, Vitamin E and so forth? What about multi-vitamins?
Do they contain supplements, are they supplied in the appropriate and purest form?
I took handfuls of supplements at one time, trying combinations and doing the best I could with the knowledge I had at the time, but there are other things in life too, so I investigated certain multivitamin combinations and the best I found were those sold through a company called Pharmanex.
Again, commercial issues arise as despite their role at the forefront of scientific and practical nutrition in this area they are still an arm of a SLM company. However, in my quest to get the most appropriate supplements for me, I started taking them 20 years ago.
For me, my regimen may not be the cheapest but I know they’re a quality product, well reviewed, have a long track record, scientifically formulated and the ingredient balanced and come in an easy to take form.
OK, so what should I do next?
As no-one really knows what every single individual needs, this combination has been perfected over years of trial and study – it’s a matter of deciding what makes sense to you. I can endorse this, for me, this product works and is worth taking as a dietary supplement to reduce the tissue damage and disease potential caused by the normal passage of time, and in so doing by reducing cell oxidation provides a realistic and scientific approach to our anti-aging.
This is prevention at its most cellularly basic level but it may also reverse the signs of aging too. Not to avail ourselves of the value of this product would be, in my opinion be to miss an opportunity for an easy, yet effective way of looking good, feeling younger and living longer.
