If you want to age well, here are some tips:
Incorporating some simple guidelines will aid in setting you squarely on the path
to optimal health and give you the best shot at living a long, happy life.
Too much sugar and processed foods, combined with insufficient exercise. Controlling
these two factors will likely eliminate more than 90% of these medical conditions:
Next, in order to better understand the cause of aging, you need to become familiar
with some compounds called "free radicals."
Poor lifestyle choices such as smoking, consuming processed foods laden with trans
fats and other harmful chemical additives, along with pesticide and other chemical
residue, add to your free radical burden.
Stress has a direct effect on the body, which in turn underlies many of chronic diseases.
Thus, developing effective coping mechanisms is a great strategy for aging gracefully.
Studies repeatedly show that regular, moderate-to-vigorous exercise can help prevent
or delay the onset of hypertension, obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis and the falls
that lead to hip fractures. Although a lifetime of regular exercise is ideal, it's
never too late to start. It's been shown that even individuals in their 70s can substantially
increase both strength and endurance with exercise.
People who've lived the longest tend to eat large amounts of whole unprocessed minimally
cooked vegetables and fruits and live in areas that promote regular physical activity,
such as daily walking.
