Are supplements the key to staying forever young?

Evidence suggests that in today’s harsh environment, we should all be taking dietary supplements.

This is according to Galway-based Active Revive, a food supplement company dedicated to creating simple and effective new ways to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

Director of Research and Development at Revive Active, Dr Daniel Jones said: “We wanted to take the highest quality of nutrients and the right dosages and to bring them together in really simple, practical formulas, without any fillers, binders, sweeteners or anything artificial.

“Every year we have further and further insight into the importance of key nutrients within our diet to make sure our bodies are functioning optimally.

“To help promote healthy ageing, that’s really what it’s about, supporting what the body wants to naturally do.”

Started back in 2011, the company is now in its seventh year and is going from strength to strength with a wide array of products available which are all formulated and made in Ireland and then shipped worldwide.

Active Revive’s newest product on the market, Beauty Complex, was developed in conjunction with nutritional dermatologists and is aimed at slowing down the ageing process of the skin using the most up to date research and knowledge in the field.

“With research, we are constantly understanding things to greater detail and in greater depth and we really understand the ageing process very, very well now,” said Dr Jones. “We have a well-defined understanding of what goes wrong in our skin as we age to show signs of ageing.

“We created this formula which is a spectrum of nutrients which really address every aspect of ageing in the skin.”

Dr Jones said that the new formula focuses on three key factors of skin treatment: restoration of the foundation of the skin, restoring the hydration of the skin which keeps the skin plump and young looking, and maintaining a strong and healthy skin barrier to keep good things in and bad things out.

Next on the horizon for the company is the launch of a line of vitamins and supplements for children which should be available by early September of this year.

“We just want to make nutrition very simple, very practical and to show people the profound benefits that can be obtained from focusing on these key nutrients,” concluded Dr Jones.
