STAND UP to aging with this ‘keystone nutrient’ boost

The worst part of aging isn’t the number of candles on your cake…

It’s the feeling that you’re WASTING AWAY.

The fullness has disappeared from your face… your bones are brittle… and your muscles have lost their tone.

This isn’t a one-way street.

Not by any means!

You can REVERSE these signs of aging and more… and BUILD yourself back up to a more youthful time in your life.

It’s all thanks to an ancient nutrient that’s finally been ISOLATED and PERFECTED for human consumption.

This development has been more than a DECADE in the making

And a new breakthrough is SHATTERING the conventions of how we fight getting older!

The war against ‘old age’

In pre-Columbian times, Mayan rituals used the plant pigment annatto as “war paint” and to illustrate manuscripts.

Native tribes of Brazil still carry on the tradition of decorating their bodies with this red pigment.

That’s how the tree it comes from (Bixa orellana) got the nickname “lipstick tree.”

But annatto has been shown to have tremendous therapeutic value, too.

In fact, scientists have spent 10 years developing a nutrient that can be extracted from it — called “geranylgeraniol” (or “GG” for short).

I GUARANTEE you’ve never heard of it… but it’s actually a close relative of vitamin E.

And it’s an anti-aging hero!

That’s because GG acts like a keystone in the complicated process of how the body nourishes itself.

According to a recent study out of Australia, our bodies naturally synthesize GG via the same pathway that produces our own supply of the nutrient CoQ10.

In fact, it can help your body create CoQ10… which often gets DEPLETED in seniors (especially those taking statins, which also effects that same ex).

It’s also an essential building block for protein, which is essential for maintaining youthful skin and skeletal muscle mass.

It’s also important in the synthesis of vitamins K1 and K2.

And as you may already know, K2 is CRITICAL for helping your body use calcium properly… rather than allowing it to build up where it can wreak havoc (i.e. your arteries).

That helps promote healthy bone density.

Unfortunately, you LOSE your supply of GG — just when you need it most.

As you get older!

And prescription drugs… both statins for cholesterol and bisphosphonates for osteoporosis… can SABOTAGE your body’s natural production of it, too.

Fortunately, you can get GG from an external source when your internal one dries up.

While GG occurs naturally in some foods (flax, sunflower, and olive oils)… you can get a standardized, patented extract of it by taking supplements.

And that means you could say GOODBYE to muscle fatigue… and perhaps even REVERSE muscle pain, which sometimes accompanies statin use.

The patented version of GG is available as Annatto-GG from its maker, Designs For Health.
