A common myth among all cultures of all time is the fountain of youth. Since the beginning of human history, we have been obsessed with acquiring eternal youth. And now more than ever, we may be close to retrieving it.
As time goes on, it is recorded on the molecular clock, which all living creatures carry. As we age, our bodies change in every aspect, from our external appearance to our DNA patterns and chemicals.
Cell rejuvenation is stopping the changes that time brings and reverting them. Throughout recent years, especially with all the new progress around stem cells, the cell rejuvenation buzz has kept getting hotter and hotter. Embryonic stem cell transplants are being used to treat various diseases and conditions.
This article will try to briefly go through the findings of the world of stem cells while describing our Sanbera approach towards real cell rejuvenation which is natural, preventative, and sustainable.
A preventative approach to cell rejuvenation
As a Swiss company, in Sanbera, we always prefer the most naturally accessible and sustainable approach. Evidence shows that stem cells are more successful in dividing in specific environments. Below we have listed some of the factors that are proven to create favourable circumstances for natural cell rejuvenation.
There wouldn’t be a way to put any other factor on top of diet in this list. A healthy diet is essential to your body for natural cell rejuvenation. Food is medicine, and what we eat defines how our body corresponds with environmental factors, including time.
Anti-inflammatory foods should be on top of our diet to protect us from time damage and promote cell rejuvenation. Aside from antioxidants that are so vital that a separate section will be devoted to them, many other nutrients aid us in detoxification and fighting inflammation.
Ensure your diet includes the cabbage family members such as cauliflower, broccoli, kale, cabbage, bok choy, garden cress & Brussels sprouts, as they are some of the best for promoting stem cell growth. The sulforaphane in these leafy greens charges our liver enzymes and breaks down harmful toxins, and their Indole-3-carbinol molecules battle the inflammatory compounds in our blood.
Fatty nuts are famous for protecting your skin’s hydration, bounciness, and firmness. This is partly due to the anti-inflammatory properties of vitamin E, which all our daily supplements include.
Look around you for plant-based food options for polyphenols. Abundantly found in mushrooms such as maitake and shiitake, polyphenols naturally boost your stem cell production and magnify your liver’s detoxifying abilities.
Iodine is one of the most highly regarded minerals in our Daily Essential Women and Daily Essential Men due to its role in enzyme function, hormone production, cell development, and fighting harmful environmental toxins.
Antioxidant-dense fruits and vegetables defend your body from the harm of free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for many chronic diseases, from cardiovascular conditions to cancer and various inflammatory issues. Look out for the deep reds and purples of fruits and vegetables, as they sign the presence of antioxidants.
We designed all of our supplements with the potent antioxidant properties of acerola, black elderberry, guarana, bilberry, cranberry, green tea, and red grape extracts. These superfoods aid in preventing free radicals from forming, identifying them, and breaking them down.
Other antioxidant food sources include all kinds of berries, broccoli, spinach, carrots, potatoes, small red beans, kidney beans, black plums, gala apples, dark leafy green, and many more.
We believe that antioxidants are critical to health maintenance and improvement, so we have the most potent antioxidant vitamins in our Sanbera system, with the highest bioavailability. Some of the antioxidant vitamins in our products are vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene, as well as minerals such as zinc.
Quitting cigarettes and reducing alcohol
We are all already well aware of the negative health impacts of smoking, so there would be no use in getting deep into them in this article. Evidence, such as the slower healing of smokers compared to non-smokers, proves that smoking seriously harms cellular regeneration.
Furthermore, the frequent and abusive consumption of alcohol provokes omniscient liver failure, harms digestion, and causes brain oxidative stress.
To not make your healthy lifestyle choices pointless and protect your well-being, it is best to stop smoking and minimize your alcohol intake.
The second phase of the Sanbera system, our Nightly Reload Women and Nightly Reload Men supplements are focused on improving sleep quality and bringing you deep rest. When it comes to cell rejuvenation, sleep is critical. When you sleep, your body repairs and detoxifies itself. Sanbera supports this process with a rich blend of nutrients and potent detoxifiers such as acerola, green tea, and folic acid.
Research by the stem cell institute shows that lack of sleep harms stem cell function. If you receive half the necessary amount of nightly dreaming, meaning 4 hours instead of 8, your stem cell migration drops by 50%.
A sedentary lifestyle seriously harms the number of circulating stem cells. A healthy cardiovascular and respiratory system and blood flow enhance cell repair and rejuvenation abilities.
Regular physical activity boosts circulating endothelial progenitor cells, also known as EPC. These stem cells attach themselves to the inside of the heart and blood vessels where the blood flow is impaired and help build the new blood vessels and capillaries.
This process triggers and promotes various other regenerative processes in the cardiovascular system and battles diseases and premature aging of the heart.
Eliminating inflammatory foods
Although inflammation is the body’s natural defense against potential threats such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins, it can also harm your health if prolonged. Constant inflammation can lead to never-ending fatigue, frequent infections, joint and muscle pain, and even insomnia - all of which consume energy and harm cell rejuvenation.
Food can cause inflammation when it is hard to digest and breakdown. While most vegetables and fruits are easily digestible, it could not be said the same for refined forms of sugars, fats, and grains in processed supermarket foods. Your body doesn’t tolerate these complex forms, doesn’t need them, and tries to get rid of them as it does not know what to do with them.
Because of the modern city lifestyle, processed foods and sugars are more than ever a threat to our health. To protect and promote stem cell activity and cell rejuvenation, one has to receive the necessary nutrients, antioxidants, and dissolvers, while minimizing the consumption of unhealthy food like sugar.
Studies have proven that reducing glucose consumption increases stem cell longevity. Other than sugar, other inflammatory foods include red meat and processed meat, refined grains such as white bread, supermarket snacks like chips and cookies, sugar drinks like soda, and fried food.
Understandably, the modern lifestyle may not allow the elimination of processed foods for most of us, although we can do our best to minimize their consumption. Our goal in Sanbera is to offer an accessible alternative that makes up for the low comings of our diets as much as possible. Our supplements can be easily introduced to your self-care routine, as rushed as it may be, to strengthen the foundations of your health.
Avoiding environmental toxins
Avoiding toxins seems impossible, but we can only do our best. Every day, we are exposed to thousands of harmful chemicals in the air, food, water, and personal products. While the impact of these toxins may not be immediate, they build up over time.
Each form of pollution and every chemical harms us in various ways. Allergies, autoimmune responses, impaired hormone production, and nervous system damage are now more common than ever, and toxin-induced diseases such as cancer are among the threats to every one of us.
While no one can avoid all these factors, studying the labels of your self-care products and supervising your diet will be beneficial. Try to replace processed harmful foods with fresh detoxifying alternatives.
While in Sanbera, we try to battle the harmful chemicals by including detoxifying nutrients such as B vitamins, zinc, and iodine, we believe that is not enough. All our products are produced with an ethical and sustainable approach to minimize any environmental harm. Formulated with only organically grown ingredients, our products are vegan and have never been tested on animals.
