Exploring Longevity with Clinique La Prairie Holistic Health

Exploring Longevity with Clinique La Prairie Holistic Health

This week, we explore the topic of Longevity with Clinique La Prairie Holistic Health. The team shares with us the importance of this topic and what we can do to ensure improved health and longevity.

Longevity is about your habits, which can lead to an imbalance in the cell signalling pathways resulting in overactivation of the growth and division’s processes at the expense of those related to stress resistance that would maintain and regenerate your metabolism. It is also about science-based solutions that rebalance the body system to reduce age-related chronic inflammation and promote cell regeneration. With Clinique La Prairie's Holistic Health supplements, you can target cellular-longevity that your body needs to unlock your fullest potential

Why do we age, and how can the aging process be inhibited?

Recent advances in science have led to a growing body of evidence showing that aging is inextricably linked to “senescence”, the process by which a cell ages and stops dividing but does not die. Over time, large numbers of these cells grow throughout the body. They remain active and release processes that cause inflammation and may damage nearby healthy cells.

Over life, cells are less able to regenerate. And the process begins early. Eight weeks after birth, there is already inability to heal a wound without leaving a scar. Subsequently, in adulthood, the regenerative potential of cells gradually decreases (until death) and is accelerated in contexts of inflammation and diseases.

At the molecular level, several cell signalling pathways have been identified as playing a crucial role in maintaining what we call “cell homeostasis” – the self-regulation of their stability. This means that we could act on the cellular pathways that are intimately connected to senescence (to aging).

Science shows that when cell signalling pathways associated with cell growth and division are activated, this links to an increase in age-related low-grade chronic inflammation and the development of chronic diseases.

In contrast, inhibition of these pathways leads to improved health and longevity, for example with cellular interventions associated with stress resistance.

How might wrong lifestyle and nutrients lead to a higher increase in senescent cells with age?

This is where inflammation strikes. A cellular imbalance is associated with chronic low-grade age-related inflammation and promotes the emergence of senescent cells while decreasing their elimination by the immune system. Although senescent cells cannot divide, they secrete many pro-inflammatory factors, which, by contamination, contribute to the transformation of cells in their vicinity into senescent cells. This condition favours the development of chronic diseases that impair the quality of life with age.

Tips to Longevity & Wellbeing

  1. Nourish your Body - What you put in your body is what you get out of it, so following a pro and prebiotic-rich diet restores gut health naturally, boosting immunity and preventing inflammation and the ageing of cells.
  2. Get to bed on time - A health-conscious lifestyle wouldn’t be complete without the right amount of quality sleep, so setting an alarm to go to bed and winding down before- hand is also a must. After all, it’s during our sleep where most of the body’s healing and regeneration happens.
  3. Keep your brain healthy - Meditate, breathe and learn. When chronically exposed to stress, the body produces high levels of cortisol, disrupt immunity and cognitive levels and cause gut inflammation. Meditation and yoga can be great for disconnecting fully, while breathing exercises ensure that the body gets enough oxygen in stressful situations.
  4. Nutraceuticals - The Holistic Health science-driven supplements range supports you with a unique core complex that promotes the natural healing and regenerative processes from the cells up. Age-Defy, the most comprehensive, targets antioxidation, anti-inflammation and cell regeneration, while others in the range support brain health or the body’s cleansing processes.

Why should we consider Longevity supplements?

Longevity supplements are advanced nutrition targeted at cellular health. They work on slowing down the hallmarks of aging that cause cellular and molecular damage in the body over time. If we refer to the above science background: they act on nutrient and energy-sensing cell signalling pathways and on senescent cells to reduce their emergence and facilitate their elimination. Holistic Health Age-Defy contains actives and important nutrients to do this work.

At the top of its science-based ingredients list:

  • Coenzyme Q10: it is naturally made inside our cells to act as an antioxidant, and is essential for cellular energy and maintenance. Its dietary supplementation is known to offer cellular support for the highest energy requirements
  • BetaVia™: nutrient-dense beta-glucans and amino acids that support the immune system and may help cells to produce vital energy
  • Cavacurmin®: highly bioavailable curcumin complex that helps provide potent antioxidant protection
  • Fixentin: known to support a slower cellular senescence
  • Ashwagandha in Niehanyl: anti-inflammatory known to help regulate biological stress reactivity
  • Soybean germ extract: bioactive with one of the richest sources of amino acids that help stabilize cellular functionality and delay age-related damage

And Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium are just a few of the antioxidants in the formula that may support mitochondrial health by balancing free radical damage.

Along with a healthy lifestyle, the right nutritional strategies aim to support health maintenance at any age, and secondarily promote long life in good conditions by slowing down the senescence and progression of chronic diseases.

The Holistic Complex

The Clinique La Prairie Holistic Health Complex is an unparalleled core complex that targets deeply at a cellular level is the breakthrough innovation at the heart of each CLP Holistic Health supplements.

Building on 90 years of research and clinical practice, Clinique La Prairie lifescience experts have identified 5 fundamental pillars of balanced health – immunity, neuromodulation (stress management), anti-inflammation, rejuvenation and cellular longevity – connecting the most powerful bioactive compounds to target them in a proprietary formula.

The result is a fusion of 5 potent ingredients balanced with targeted active naturals that connect together for your wellbeing and longevity.

You will find CLP Holistic Complex across all the Holistic Health Supplements. Clinique La Prairie recommends to start with an AGE-DEFY and add the rest according to your needs.
