  • Qualia Senolytic: Have you heard about senolytics yet? It’s a class of ingredients discovered less than 10 years ago, and it’s being called the biggest discovery of our time for promoting healthy aging and enhancing your physical prime. Your goals in your career and beyond require productivity. But let’s be honest: The aging process is not our friend when it comes to endless energy and productivity. As we age, everyone accumulates “senescent” cells in their body. Senescent cells cause symptoms of aging, such as aches and discomfort, slow workout recoveries, and sluggish mental and physical energy associated with that “middle age” feeling. Also known as “Zombie Cells,” they are old and worn out and not serving a useful function for our health anymore, but they are taking up space and nutrients from our healthy cells. Much like pruning the yellowing and dead leaves off a plant, Qualia Senolytic removes those worn-out senescent cells to allow for the rest of your cells to thrive in the body. Take it just two days a month. The formula is non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free, and the ingredients are meant to complement one another, factoring in the combined effect of all ingredients together. Resist aging at the cellular level and try Qualia Senolytic. Go to for up to $100 off and use code ROUNDTABLE at checkout for an additional 15 percent off.
