AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER.
Do you know that you can slow down the aging process and reverse it to some extend? Do you want to feel young, look young and stay young? With Anti aging lifestyle, it is possible.
The Secret of Long Life
The Chinese, the Japanese have the highest longevity in the world having several thousands of people living beyond 100 years.
There are plenty of sadhus and yogis in Himalayas who gain energy from just air, water and sunlight and are living beyond 150 years. Aging is just unknown to them.
So, what do they know, that we don’t?
The Science of Anti Aging
A large majority of chronic human diseases are the result of early ageing. If you can delay this ageing process you could live longer, healthier and happier.
Recent research in molecular biology has explained the process of retrograde aging.
The hypothesis behind the delaying of the aging process is, by elimination of the free radicals that cause oxidative damage to the cells and by preservation of the telomeres which are the end caps of your DNA that are responsible for cellular worn out.
Lifestyle is Everything
You too, can delay your aging process by a disciplined lifestyle with a detached mental disposition.
Here are few lifestyle practices for anti-aging –
Yoga and Exercise
Daily practice of hatha-yoga helps to develop flexibility, strength, equilibrium and improved physiological functions of the vital organs. The role of aerobic exercises, like swimming, jogging, running, cycling, treadmill or cross trainer activity improves the micro circulation, stamina and strengthens the circulatory system.
Food and Herbs
Consuming the foodstuffs which are rich in antioxidant properties delays the aging process. Regular consumption of turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, garlic, fresh lemons, blue or black berries, asparagus, almonds and walnut are extremely beneficial to delay aging process. They also boost the immunity, helps to fight infection and have Lipid lowering properties as well.
One must avoid all toxic substances which are poor in antioxidants and those that are studded with trans-fats. You must stay far away from fried food, stale and refrigerated food and all sorts of fast foodstuffs.
Adequate intake of water maintains cellular hydration necessary for optimal function of the cells. Dehydration gives a haggard look and triggers early aging.
Healthy Sex life is considered a cardio-tonic activity which liberates chemicals called as serotonin, oxytocin, endomorphs and dopamine which enhances the feel-good factor necessary to delay the aging process.
Gentle body massage at regular intervals is invigorating.
Prevention is better than cure
Mind you that resisting change is also resisting youthfulness. Accept any ‘change’ gracefully. So, these methods of controlling the aging process translates into preventing the major lifestyle diseases like heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer that are today rising exponentially. The cost of prevention is far too less than the price that you would pay for the treatment.
