Enjoy!NLA for Her launches anti-aging supplement Healthy Her
Introducing our newest supplement, Healthy Her! Coming soon to NLAforHer.com April 7th, 2014...
Healthy Her is our Cutting Edge Anti-Oxidant Blend that has potent anti-aging and overall women's health benefits!
What will Healthy Her do for you?
-Anti Aging Benefits
-Boosts Immune System Function
-Helps Prevent Free Radical Oxidation
-Improved Skin, Hair, and Health
Why supplement with Healthy Her?
Healthy Her is our cutting edge anti-oxidant and anti-aging blend formulated to reduce free radical oxidation in the body, enhancing cellular function and overall health. When free radicals overwhelm the body's ability to regulate them, your body becomes in a state of oxidative stress which ultimately leads to the premature aging of the affected cells.
Healthy Her is so effective because of our ultra concentrated formula of top of the following line ingredients:
Pterostillbene: A powerful, natural antioxidant that originates from blueberries. Several human clinical trials have concluded that pterostillbene may help fight free radicals caused by oxidative stress, supports healthy blood flow and circulation, may improve memory and mental focus, supports healthy cellular aging, may improve mitochondria function, and promotes heart health.
Resveratrol: Found naturally in the skin of red grapes, studies have shown that Resveratrol effectively may help neutralize free radicals and other oxidants as well as may help inhibit LDL oxidation.
Glutathione: Helps eliminate toxins, enhances immune system functions, and promotes healthyenergy production and fights free radicals.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: A powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals and also helps regenerate other antioxidants.
Vitamin E: The most abundant fat soluble antioxidant in the body and one of the most efficient chain breaking antioxidants available.
Biotin: Promotes healthy hair, skin, and strong nails.
