The desire to stop the ageing process or even reverse it is probably as old as the human race. Every breath, every digestion, every heart beat and every operation leave traces on our bodies. Ageing is something that happens to all of us but the rate in which it occurs can vary enormously. Your biological age will depend on your personal level of fitness and mental state. Researchers have found a variety of ageing characteristics that can help define our personal biological age. These include hormones, vitamin and mineral levels, bone density, breathing capacity, personal fitness and much more.
The most common diseases in the 21st century are age related, such as cardiovascular disorders, osteoporosis, dementia and cancer. Anti-ageing techniques can help delay the ageing process, stop or even reverse it.
Anti-ageing always starts with our personal choices. A balanced diet and enough exercise are the basis for a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy weight and having an adequate supply of micronutrients are fundamental to healthy ageing. Many studies prove that regular exercise can prevent cardiovascular illnesses as well as osteoporosis and dementia. Risk factors like smoking, alcohol, over-exposure to the sun or electromagnetic effects on the body, caused by mobile phones, should be avoided. Therefore, free radicals have a significant impact on the ageing process. Scientists say that these aggressive oxygen compounds speed up the ageing process because the body changes them into toxins and so smoking or over-exposure to the sun should be avoided. These free radicals normally become harmless with a good supply of vitamin C, E and beta-carotene.
Stress can also have an impact on the ageing process. Therefore, it is not only a balanced diet and physical activity that play an essential role in fighting the ageing process, it is also important to find mental balance.
