Polyphenols are micronutrients with powerful antioxidant activity, and they are found abundantly in common foods like vegetables, fruits, red wine, and cocoa. Amazingly, there are over 8,000 polyphenols already identified, and probably more that are yet to be discovered! I coined the term Powerphenol because I’ve found that intelligent, high potency polyphenol supplementation plays a key role in slowing aging and increasing your vitality as well as improving the quality of your keto lifestyle.
Regardless of your age, size, fitness level or lifestyle, your goal should be not only to survive but thrive! That is exactly what Powerphenols do: they act as a nutritional bonus that takes your health to the next level, allowing you to glow from the inside out.
Similarly to how you would upgrade an airline seat for more legroom or upgrade the operating system on your phone, think of Powerphenols as an upgrade for your nutritional status. When I say that, I’m referring to creating a wellness shield that protects against degenerative diseases, increases beneficial bacteria in your gut and supports weight management, and a keto lifestyle amount others.
ˈpou(ə)r fēˌnôl,-ˌnōl/ (noun) — the ability of an autophagy-activating polyphenol in a nutrient-dense form to do or act in a way to defy aging and improve health.
Why are Powerphenols so important for restoring youth, supporting your keto lifestyle, and protecting you against disease? There are several key reasons that my book, Glow15, includes these powerhouse nutrients, and it largely has to do with environmental factors that are (to some extent) out of your control.
Five Reasons Why You Need Powerphenols
Food Production is Flawed
1 In an ideal world, the food you eat would come from healthy, nutrient-rich soil and be sustained by pure water. Sadly, this is far from the case. Soil degradation is the decline of soil condition, and one consequence of this is contamination from toxic chemicals and pollutants. These pollutants are then transferred to the food you eat and water you drink. Water is also drained of important nutrients due to modern filtration, such as magnesium (not to mention chemical contamination).
If you grew up and have always eaten a diet of mostly organic produce, grass-fed and pasture-raised meats and eggs, it’s possible for today’s world of nutrient-depleted agriculture to still result in nutritional deficiencies. Play it safe, use Powerphenols help to fill in the gaps.
Nutrient Levels are Dropping
2 Multiple studies have shown that nutrient levels in your fruits and vegetables have significantly dropped: especially calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin, iron, vitamin C and protein. Conventionally raised produce contain far fewer vitamins and minerals than they did a half-century ago. Unfortunately, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are disrupting soil quality and depleting it of vital nutrients and polyphenols take a serious hit. Suffice it to say, this is a serious problem.
Even if you eat 100% organic, contamination and nutrient depletion is still possible, so better not to gamble your health. In Glow15, I offer a targeted supplement plan highlighting Powerphenols, to help balance a depleted system and protect you against the potentially dangerous toxins found in today’s food supply. Powerphenols have strong antioxidant capacity so if your body is inflamed from rampant cellular oxidation, these medicinal plant compounds can help restore integrity to your tired, worn out system.
Accelerated Agers Disrupt Detox
3 I don’t want to overwhelm you, but the truth is that your health and wellbeing are getting attacked from various aggressors, not just the foods you eat! Environmental and lifestyle stressors like lack of sleep, environmental toxins in the air and chronic stress and anxiety can also be considered Accelerated Agers, meaning factors that speed up the aging process in an unnatural (but common) way.
Research shows that polyphenolic antioxidants levels can plummet with repeated exposure to Accelerated Agers, so supplementing with Powerphenols is a surefire way to protect your cells and support your natural detox process. In Glow15 I highlight the four supplements I suggest (EGCG, Berberine, Curcumin, and Trans-Resveratrol), including how to take them as part of your wellness lifestyle.
Absorption Declines with Age
4 Many factors can affect digestion and absorption of nutrients from the foods you eat, and aging is one. As you get older, your levels of hydrochloric acid (HCL) and digestive enzymes naturally decline, and this can potentially lead to nutrient deficiencies. In addition, eating a high-fat or ketogenic diet often requires a greater need for digestive enzymes to digest all the fat. Along with ensuring your digestive system is functioning properly (at any age), supplementing with Powerphenols to make up for some degree of unavoidable decline is a smart idea.
Your Nutritional Insurance Policy
5 Considering that most insurance companies don’t see the value in preventative nutritional therapy, you should probably take matters into your own hands! Glow15 will walk you through a nutritional insurance policy consisting of whole foods, good fats, exercise, self-care and Powerphenols to be sure you are doing everything in your power to help slow aging, support your keto lifestyle, and fight disease.
While getting all of the nutrients you need from an organic, keto diet is a lovely idea, in theory, the reality is that all of these consequences of modern living make that a real challenge. Think of Powerphenols as a nutritional savings account: you’re storing critical nutrients for protection and security when you most need them. Really, it’s an advantage you need to invest in!
Glow15 supports you with how to begin your Powerphenol supplements that also go hand in hand with the Glow15 program as well as a keto diet; to achieve the level of wellness you’ve always wanted, protect yourself from future disease and feel your very best every day.
