How to Resist Ageing

Many a system in the human body slow down as age advances and it is found that at the age of 75 a person has only 70% of the cells he or she had earlier. Nowadays many look aged before they actually become old. Let us see the basic reasons and tips to resist ageing.

Causes of Ageing

  • Ageing is the process of growing from birth causing apparent physical changes on the skin, loss of flexibility of joints and muscles, weakness of bones, reduction in the eyesight etc.
  • The progressive deterioration of the biological systems reduces the capacity to replace the dead cells.
  • Unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals accelerate the ageing process and such free radicals are formed more due to smoking/chewing tobacco, consumption of excessive alcohol and radiation from sun and x-rays.

Remedies

  1. Antioxidants that are produced from the food intake are the most powerful weapons that can disarm the free radicals.
  2. Food intakes that contain vitamin C and vitamin E must be taken regularly.
  3. Folic acid which is rich in vitamin B maintains red blood cells and promotes healthy functioning of nerves besides protecting the heart.
  4. Glucosamine is a good supplement to maintain healthy joints because it enhances blood flow.
  5. Quit smoking.
  6. Take lots of fruits and vegetables.
  7. Avoid exposing yourself to strong sun and do weight bearing exercises like walking at least five days a week.
  8. Drink green tea extract twice a day. Consume vitamin B12 with Folic acid and vitamin E for improving longevity significantly.
  9. Last but not the least, clean and good habits which one need not buy are the best anti-ageing agents.
