I marvel at Betty White, as bubbly and zestful at 99 years old as she was half a century ago playing perky Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Lucky lady. Betty’s energy inspires me. We all need as much vitality as we can get as we age.
Everyone knows that genetics, exercise and healthy eating are crucial components of aging well. But now scientists have discovered a critical link between how and why we age and the health of the 30 trillion cells in our bodies. Giving us energy and strength, as well as supporting our immunity and overall well being, our cellular processes deteriorate with each passing birthday. We tire more easily, become weaker, have reduced mobility and stamina and are more susceptible to disease.
Known as Age-Associated Cellular Decline (AACD), the way we feel is connected to a time-related deterioration in the way our cells function that begins in our 40s and accelerates in our 60s. This journey progresses at different rates for everyone.
But here’s excellent news: Scientists at Nestlé Health Science have figured out that nourishing our cells with targeted cellular nutrients can help renew and restore our declining cellular processes. And they’ve created CelltrientTM Cellular Nutrition, a line of supplements and beverages to help manage how our cells perform as we age. Celltrient is the first and only brand that addresses more than one of the causes of AACD through a range of targeted cellular nutrients, GlyNAC, Urolithin A and Nicotinamide Riboside.

Celltrient Cellular Energy features Nicotinamide Riboside (NR), a unique form of vitamin B3 or niacin, that can help our cells replenish an important molecule for energy production, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+). NAD+ is essential because it allows our cells to convert the fats, proteins and carbohydrates we eat into the energy we need to function every day. Research shows that NAD+ levels decline by up to 50 percent when we’re between the ages of 40 and 60.
Even if we do cardio and weight-bearing exercises, consume a diet of nutritious whole foods, get adequate sleep, and stay away from smoking and drinking, our NAD+levels decline as we age. “This can begin as early as our 40s and a shortfall of NAD+ can be a reason we feel less peppy and have less stamina when we’re in our 60s,” said Dr. Noelle Reid, a holistic family medicine physician in Los Angeles.
The NR in Celltrient Cellular Energy does its job deep inside our cells to help revitalize their natural processes, Dr. Reid explained. The level of NAD+ increases, typically within two weeks, and is sustained as long as you continue taking the supplement. Available in powder that can be mixed with most any cold beverage, the product also includes six different B vitamins, to help support energy metabolism.
If you’re already taking niacin, vitamin B3 and other B vitamins, consider trying Celltrient Cellular Energy because it’s a unique formula and will have a greater impact on your NAD+ levels, Dr. Reid added.
PROTECTING YOUR CELLS
Now is the most important time to protect your cells. We’ve heard countless times during the last year that the older we are, the more susceptible we are to illness. Just as NAD+ declines in our cells affects our level of energy, a reduction of the antioxidant glutathione in our cells makes us more vulnerable to disease as we age. “Glutathione protects our cells from external toxins that enter our body through food, water, air, or physical contact with skin,” Dr. Reid said. It also helps protect cells from damage caused by environmental factors, including cigarette smoke, air pollutants and industrial chemicals.

Less glutathione can mean less protection for our immune cells. Celltrient Cellular Protect features a blend of amino acids, Glycine and N-Acetyl Cysteine (GlyNAC), that are the building blocks for glutathione, the master antioxidant we need for our overall cellular protection. It’s available in convenient mix-ins and capsule forms.
KEEPING YOUR STRENGTH AND STAMINA AS YOU AGE
Strenuous exercise might tire us out when we’re young, but it can leave us gasping for breath and achy all over as we age, especially when we don’t consistently use our muscles. When we’re older our overall strength is impacted by the combination of reduced muscle mass and energy production in our skeletal muscle cells.
Celltrient Cellular Strength provides our muscle cells with the nutrient Urolithin A (UA), which helps cells renew their power plants and promote healthy muscle function. “Cellular Strength complements our daily exercise routines and gives our cells an extra boost,” Dr. Reid stressed.
“My journey with cellular nutrients began about four years ago, when I started taking an NR supplement. My signature high energy seemed to be decreasing, and the science behind NR impressed me,” said Geri Brin, editor of FabOverFifty.com, a lifestyle website for women. “I don’t have a scintilla of doubt that NR helped me maintain the level of energy I’ve always enjoyed. When Celltrient recently launched, I switched to Celltrient Cellular Energy because I like its additional B vitamins and that I can mix the powder into a glass of cold sparkling water,” Geri added. “I’m also planning to add Celltrient Cellular Protect to my regimen.
“It’s exciting to benefit from the advances in nutritional science that are helping us to redefine the way we manage our health.”
