John Anderson's 7 Tips for Healthy Aging

John AndersonWith recent news of preliminary data that U.S. life expectancy is down for the first time since 2004 — dropping to age 77.8 overall – there is yet more talk about what people can really do for themselves to live successfully into old age.

Successful aging is crucial, now more than ever, considering the drastic rise in an aging population that scientists have said may soon cause a ”global aging crisis” bringing with it enormous challenges to countries worldwide.

With the recent introduction of Product B™ Antioxidant plus Telomere Support, we turned to Isagenix Founder and Master Formulator John Anderson, who has dedicated himself to researching the topic.

Product BWhat is Product B and why do I need it? “Product B is an advanced dietary supplement that is designed to support longevity and healthy aging. Product B works directly within the body’s cells to combat oxidative stress caused by an overabundance of free radicals and to support telomeres, critical guardians of our DNA. Keeping telomeres healthy and long is important because their shortening is a key biomarker of the aging process. In our modern world, unfortunately, most of us suffer from greater oxidative stress due to being overweight, malnourished, and overstressed. Greater oxidative stress leads to an increased rate of telomere shortening. Product B works to reduce the harmful effects oxidative stress has on telomere length.”

We also asked him what he considered as the best advice to give people for the sake of healthy aging.

“In today’s toxic world, we need all the help we can get to protect ourselves against foreign invaders entering our bodies every second of every day,” he said. “We age from the time we are conceived until the time we die. Most people have accepted this as being normal and do nothing because they feel like the battle has been lost.”

According to Anderson, however, it is indeed possible to fight aging with simple (yet complex), proven ways to help us to achieve healthy, long lives.

Here are John Anderson’s 7 tips for healthy aging:

  1. Choose healthy foods that are dense in nutrients. Shop for your foods on the outer aisles of your grocery store and spend most of your time in the organic fruits and vegetables sections.
  2. Cleanse daily using botanicals and ingredients shown to assist in the removal of toxins.
  3. Exercise daily. Aim for at least 30 minutes of activity.
  4. Practice healthy sleep habits. You know the rule: eight hours a night is the ideal.
  5. Reduce stress–this is not easy sometimes, but finding ways to solve the cause of stress in your life is absolutely necessary.
  6. Take antioxidants, botanicals, omega-3s, vitamins, minerals, and other quality nutrients that fight aging and support your body. There is nothing better than the convenient packets of Ageless Essentials™ Daily Pack with Product B. Get all of your daily nutrients needed for youthful aging and vibrant energy all in a handy packet and never have to struggle with another pill bottle again.
  7. Add at least 1 to 2 IsaLean® Shake servings to your regimen daily (to replace meals) because it’s proven that nutrient density and low caloric intake is helpful in slowing aging and ensuring proper weight control.

IsaLean Program with Product B

And finally, we asked John for his advice: What’s the best way to use the Isagenix system to enhance the effectiveness of Product B? We believe Product B will provide optimal results when combined with our Pillars of Health products (the foundation of every Isagenix System): IsaLean Shake, Ionix® Supreme, Ageless Essentials Daily Pack, and Cleanse for Life®. These “Pillars”, when used together, can help reduce oxidative stress, support nutritional needs, cleanse the body, and ensure the required balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
