In this month's edition of Julie's Medicine Cabinet, our founder delves into her personal health regimen, underscoring the importance of a holistic approach to wellness. "My foundational belief in health begins with diet, hydration, movement, connecting with nature, and prioritizing sleep hygiene," Julie shares. "As we age, and I'm keenly aware of this in a milestone year for myself, our focus naturally shifts to maintaining bone density, preserving collagen, and ensuring our brain health and muscle strength." Julie views supplementation as a key part of her nutritional strategy, particularly as markers of aging become more central. This month, our founder reveals a curated selection of supplements significantly impacting her cognition, energy, and overall well-being. From glycine to creatine to her must-have CoQ10, Julie's discoveries are the products you need that you never knew you needed.
"Glycine is a known powerhouse for supporting bone, muscle, brain, and skin health," Julie explains. "Its role in collagen formation is crucial for bone density and skin elasticity. I've found it particularly effective for muscle repair and cognitive function. It's become a staple in my routine to ensure my body's resilience. I prefer it in powder form rather than capsules."
"Creatine is my go-to for enhancing muscle strength and brain health," says Julie. "Its ability to boost ATP production is invaluable for high-energy demands, and I've noticed a marked improvement in cognitive tasks. It's not just for athletes; creatine is a key player in my regimen for maintaining muscle mass and bone health, which is a priority for 2024. Currently, I'm taking a creatine powder by the Mexican brand Birdman and am happy with the results."
"NAD has been a game-changer for my cellular energy and metabolism," Julie notes. "As I focus on aging gracefully, this supplement helps counteract the natural decline in NAD levels, supporting my brain health and DNA repair processes. It's a cornerstone for longevity and overall cellular health. I use MitoLife NAD Powder Extra Strength."
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)
"CoQ10 is essential for mitochondrial health and protecting my heart and has been a staple of mine for several years," Julie emphasizes. "Its role as an antioxidant is pivotal in my daily routine, combating oxidative stress and the signs of aging on my skin. As I grow older, maintaining a healthy heart and youthful skin is a priority, and CoQ10 is integral to achieving that. I love Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with PQQ."
