4 Tips for Caregivers Looking to Stay Healthyby Rejuvenation Therapeutics Science and Editorial Team
November is Caregiver Awareness month! In honor of that, we would like to take a moment to thank all the caregivers in our lives. Caregivers are often an underappreciated community, so if you are among that noble set, we recognize that you are truly doing something amazing.

Do You Know What Is In Your Supplements?by Rejuvenation Therapeutics Science and Editorial Team
Do you really know what is inside your daily vitamins?
Many people incorrectly assume that the pill or capsule they are ingesting contains just the pure ingredient written on the side of the bottle.
Not so! The reality is not all vitamin supplements are made the same. Before putting anything in your body, make sure to research the purity of the product.
Some vitamins can be downright detrimental. Some contain additives and unnatural fillers that can be harmful to your health just like processed foods are. They can also block the absorption of nutrients.
When it comes to vitamins and supplements, choose a company like Rejuvenation Therapeutics that focuses on using the most natural ingredients available for the filler, the capsule and the packaging for each of their supplements.

Anti-Aging Breakthrough: Scientists’ Vitamin B3 Discovery Turns Back the Clockby Rejuvenation Therapeutics Science and Editorial Team
Recent scientific studies from major universities have discovered that nicotinamide riboside (NR), a unique form of Vitamin B3, can help slow the aging process.
How does it do this? It elevates levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a natural compound found in all living cells.
Despite being a mouthful to say, NAD+ is vitally important to our bodies for normal cellular function and generating metabolic energy. Unfortunately, it is also proven to decrease as we get older.
Therefore, taking supplements with NR could aid in combatting NAD+ decline, which leads to aging and chronic diseases. Studies have shown that NR taken daily in the right amount can also enhance cardio and brain health by elevating levels of NAD+ in the blood.
The increased levels of NAD+ can promote cells to repair and sustain themselves, thereby slowing down aging.
