Nutritionist shares the 10 most powerful ingredients in the fight against ageing13 Oct 2020
Australian nutritionist and health author Jessica Sepel has nominated the 10 most powerful ingredients in alleviating symptoms of ageing.
Ms Sepel said that as the symptoms of ageing go further than skin deep, it’s really important to support vitality from the inside out.
“As a woman in my 30s I am beginning to experience the onset of the symptoms of ageing when it comes to skin health, hair and nail growth, as well as the slowing of my digestive system and a decline in energy levels,” Ms Sepel said.
“There are so many products and creams that claim to reverse ageing from the outside, whether it be reducing wrinkles or shrinking pores. However, some of the most disruptive impacts of ageing are to do with what’s going on inside your body.
“A balanced diet and continuing to do forms of exercise you enjoy are the most important tools against ageing. However, there is research showing the efficacy of certain nutrients and ingredients when consumed at therapeutic doses in supporting the maturing body.
