For more than 2,500 years, human’s have been searching in vain for the fountain of youth. It’s almost certain it will never be found; however, that’s not to say there aren’t other ways to fight the effects of ageing. Clinique La Prairie’s age-defying food supplements contain a special holistic complex, and a new scientific study has proven it to be an excellent way to fight natural ageing.
The Swiss-based Clinique La Prairie is regarded as one of the leading lights in preventative medicine and has been in existence for more than 90 years. Unlike many of the here today, gone tomorrow brands that make all manner of overblown claims, the Swiss clinic has built an enviable reputation founded upon its long-standing results.
The clinic has a team comprising of around fifty specialists, all using the latest technology. In what will come as excellent news for those searching to slow down the onslaught of time, a new scientific study has now proven the anti-ageing effects of its proprietary CLP Holistic Complex contained within its food supplements in a laboratory setting.
One of the significant contributors to ageing is something called oxidative stress. I am quite sure that some of you will recognise the words but perhaps aren’t sure what it is. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, these are known as RONS. Ageing is due to the accumulation of RONS-induced damage. Various studies have shown that antioxidant therapy could be an essential factor in preventing ageing, and this is one of the key elements in Clinique La Prairie’s anti-ageing food supplements.
CLP Holistic Complex and Age-Defy formula
CLP Holistic Complex is the core ingredient in Clinique La Prairie’s Holistic Health supplements. The complex has been proven to have a protective effect on the telomeres, a region of repetitive DNA sequences found at the end of chromosomes.
Oxidative stress can result from various factors, including pollution, a poor diet and lifestyle. Not only is it a factor in ageing, but it can also lead to disease and chronic inflammation. The role of telomeres is to protect the chromosomes from deteriorating.
The Telemores form a cap at the end of each chromosome, which can shorten over time due to oxidative stress. It is this that contributes to ageing, as once the Telemores reach a critical length, they are unable to divide and replicate, resulting in a lack of cell repair, which could cause tissue and organ deterioration. The way forward is to slow down the rate of Telomere shortening, which in turn, will help to delay the ageing process.
How science has proved the anti-ageing properties of the CLP Holistic Complex
Life Length Laboratories conducted an eight-week laboratory study to investigate the protective effects of the CLP Holistic Complex on telomeres. The CLP Holistic Complex was tested on human cells (primary fibroblasts) to investigate how it affected telomere length.
The study showed that telomere shortening associated with cell ageing was much slower in cells treated with the CLP Holistic Complex when compared to the control group. Therefore, the study concluded that using Holistic Health supplements as part of a healthy lifestyle can mitigate the negative effects of ageing and contribute to longevity.
Managing oxidative stress and telomere loss with a healthy lifestyle
Nutritional supplements are among the very best tools to help reduce the rate of telomere loss when combined with a diet rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents such as plant protein, healthy fats and polyphenols, as well as exercise, sleep and managing stress.
