You potentially haven’t even thought about Urolithin A yet today! Ha! Well, I hadn’t either. In fact, I want to put an r in the word, it’s so unfamiliar I struggled with it in the interview! But it can have a positive impact on healthy aging and we’re going to tell you just how.
What you have thought about today is your energy. Or you’ve taken it for granted because it’s already great. Nearly 80% of our community deal with lower energy than they’d like and cope with it quietly or resort to quick fixes that not only don’t last but prolong fatigue.
Warning if you’re sensitive to supplements or feel my talking about them becomes too salesy, this may not be your episode. While this is not meant to sell you, persuade you or entice you it is intended to make you aware of discoveries that can boost your nutrition when you’re not able to eat enough, or don’t get enough of the right foods for whatever reason.
A supplement won’t do the heavy lifting if you aren’t trying. If you don’t eat well, a supplement is really a ridiculous effort. Drinking Boost or Ensure-like products is not life sustaining. Real food recently grown by sun and rain is necessary. But when you can’t, or when you can and depleted soil and quality of food means low energy and absorption, then science discoveries can help.
We can agree to disagree. And I think we can co-exist happily doing so. Vegans live in the same household as carnivores for crying out loud!
