Ageing is a funny thing. It’s as if one day you are looking at this young healthy person in the mirror then all of a sudden that person is replaced by this older person looking back at you.
Does it have to be like this?
The Winning and Losing in Ageing
Age is something we all face. It’s part of our journey through this world. Yet how is it some people seem to do it so much better than others?
It’s as if they are taking sly sips from the Fountain of Youth, defying the ageing process and living an adventurous, happy, healthy, later life.
So how can we retain that vitality and health as we age?
One thing that really helps is a healthy lifestyle.
7 Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle
Natural foods help give you a more natural body. Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meats, fish, free range poultry, whole grains, pulses, beans, nuts, seeds, vegetarian and vegan proteins etc.
Cut down on processed foods like take-aways, cakes, biscuits, sweets, ice-cream, chocolate, sugar, sugary drinks, etc.
Cut down on alcohol and reduce or stop smoking.
Do some resistance exercise (weight training), three to four times a week.
Go for a 20 minute walk every day, and try to get a minimum of 8 hours sleep every night.
Cut down on screen-time (computers, phones, TV’s etc). Especially for two hours before bed. (For more information on this, check out blue light screens and the natural sleep inducing hormone melatonin).
Science and Ageing
Another challenge we face as we age is that our bodies are continually being bombarded by toxins called free radicals. They attack and damage our cells and have been implicated in contributing to the negative signs of ageing.
These negative signs include everything from arthritis and asthma right down to heart disease and cancer, and are also implicated in the wrinkling of the skin.
We need a certain amount of free-radicals, but our problems begin where they start to over-tax our immune defences and our system can’t stop their destructive activity.
The problem is that as we age, free radical damage really does go into overdrive, and is widely acknowledged as one of the main contributory causes of ageing.
Free Radicals – Where They Come From
We can’t stop free radicals coming into the body.
They come in from stress, radiation, computers, mobile phones, sunlight, a lot of fats in our diet, alcohol, cigarette smoke, etc.
What can we do then to combat the damaging effect free radicals can have on our body?
Help From the Good Guys
This is where our own superhero defenders come into play. Our Body’s natural defence unit that deals with these nasty toxins is our immune system. This is largely fuelled by amazing defenders called antioxidants.
These antioxidants use their nutritional superpowers combating bacteria, viruses and toxins that threaten our body.
Chief among these are the Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and the minerals Zinc, Magnesium, Potassium and Selenium.
Other very useful antioxidants are Pomegranate, Green Tea, Ginseng, Broccoli-Sprout, Spirulina and Lycopene.
These are all very valuable antioxidants to have at our disposal to help support us in our advancing years.
A New Level of Antioxidant Support
There is already an antioxidant formula that contains all of these antioxidants and more.
It is called Cell Rejuvenation Mix by Tony Quinn Educohealth.
Together they help form a potent antioxidant defence unit, and come in an easy-to-use tablet form and can be taken with meals.
