There are various antiaging supplements available in the market. Some supplements may claim to have antiaging effects but their effectiveness & safety can vary.. below are some common antiaging supplements that have been studied for the potential benefits.

1.  Omega-3 fatty acids: found in fatty fish and flaxseed oil they can have anti-inflammatory properties and support heart and brain health- make sure you pick up quality brand of omega-3's as needs to be a pure form.

2. Coenzyme Q 10:  antioxidant that helps produce energy in cells and may have skin and heart health benefits.

3. Vitamin C:  antioxidant that supports collagen production and helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and damage.

4. Vitamin E:  antioxidant that may help protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays and other environmental factors.

5. Resveratrol: found in red wine and  grapes it is an antioxidant that has been studied for its potential antiaging effects.

6. Curcumin:  derived from turmeric and is an antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties.

7. Niacinamide (vitamin B3):  vitamin studied for its potential to improving skin elasticity and reducing fine lines.

8. Collagen supplements : there are some studies that suggest collagen could improve skin elasticity and hydration.

9. Green tea extract: contains polyphenol's that have antioxidant properties and could support skin health.

10. NMN ( Nicotinamde mononucleotide):  precursor to NAD+ and shown to elevate levels of NAD+ which produces energy.

11. NAD+ ( Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide): important for energy production and supplementation has been shown to slow mitochondrial decline ( the powerhouses of our cells) and improve health and age. 

12. NR ( Nicotinamde riboside): precursor to NAD+ and shown to elevate levels of NAD+ which produces energy. 

These supplements could offer potential benefits but they are not a substitute for healthy lifestyle which includes a balanced diet, exercise, sleep and proper skin care.   Additionally, individual responses to supplements can always vary and supplements can interact with medications.. so always consult with a physician before starting.
