Anti aging tips
Human life moves inevitably from the cradle to the grave, like the way ocean waves move to for the shore. The questions of why people age and why people die have been asked for thousands of years… and only in the last forty years or so has science been able to provide concrete answers.
You see, aging is caused primarily by the formation of unstable oxygen molecules, known as free radicals, in the body. The process is irreversible, because every cell in the body produces tens of thousands of these free radicals everyday. So, if your aim is to fight aging and be as young as you can be in your old age, then you need to be properly informed on how best to do this.
First and foremost, exercises would greatly help you fight aging. With exercises you can build endurance and strength. Studies suggest that exercise combats loss of muscle strength, stamina, balance and bone density that increases with age.
The American Heart Association says regular Aerobic exercise is a “must do” for anyone committed to slowing the aging process.
In case you didn’t know, free radicals contribute to the aging process. So, to slow down aging, there is the need for you to maximize your intake of anti-oxidants- because they can neutralize free radicals to a great extent.
There are also certain foods and supplements that can help slow down the aging process.
Dr Jeffrey Blumberg of Tufts University advises that eating dark colored vegetables like carrots, spinach, tomatoes and similar give you carotenoids, while eating berries that are purple and blue give you flavonoids which also helps.
But since it is very difficult to eat what we should, Dr Blumberg advises taking daily supplements of the classic anti-oxidants, such as – 200 – 250mg of Vitamin C; 100 – 400 of Vitamin E; and a mixed carotenoid supplement of 6 – 10mg.
You see, taking anti-oxidants is like driving with a seat belt, according to Dr. Blumberg. They can seriously protect your life, not only from daily diseases but also from the sudden and dangerous actions of free radicals.
Another way to reduce or slow down the aging process is to prevent or treat the skin’s exposure to the harsh rays of the sun. According to Doris Day, the assistant clinical professor of Dermatology at New York University, ninety-five percent of wrinkles are due to exposure to sun.
So, as much as possible, try to avoid exposing your skin to the rays of the sun. And where you can’t, you can use good creams that help to ease the effect of the sun on your skin.
There are many good creams out there that help fight the effect of the sun on our skins. Such creams help fade brown aging spots, reduce wrinkles and other fine lines, and even aid in smoothing your skin tone. To know the good ones to use, make sure you buy the creams that are well known and also approved by the Food and Drugs Administration.
One of such creams approved by the Food and Drugs Administration is called Renova. Doris Day even recommends Renova cream for people who have early signs of sun damage and early signs of skin cancer.
