Anti Aging Tips To Keep Your Body Younger
Aging is a natural process. However, there are recommendations, advice, and even small changes in the daily routine that can delay this process and even help maintain health.
Below are 7 simple and straightforward ideas for staying young and healthy longer.
Anti-Aging and Health Tips
Nutrition is one of the most important pillars to delay aging and maintain health.
It’s not just about eating a couple of fruits a day and then knowing the difference between good and bad fats, paying more attention to variety, reading product labels purchased at the supermarket, and checking the proportions of food consumed. That is to say, it is necessary to make the correct nutritional selection a custom.
If, for years, you have had bad nutritional habits, it will not be easy to change them overnight. However, you can gradually improve your diet towards a healthier one.
Staying Physically Active
Research shows that being physically active helps delay aging. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can achieve this goal, especially if you stick to a routine on a regular basis and if you choose the exercise of greatest preference (swimming, walking, bicycling, etc.).
A large number of studies have conclusively shown that obesity can cause serious health problems and shorten life. Even 5 kg of extra weight can mean unnecessary risk, especially if this excess is located around the waist. It is important to understand that, with age, metabolism slows down and does not burn the calories you used to burn which means reducing the amount of food you eat and exercising more.
Taking Care of Your Bones
You shouldn’t expect to reach menopause, in the case of women, to worry about osteoporosis. You need to start taking care of your bones much sooner, as you start losing bone density at least a decade before menopause. One way to keep your bone system in good shape and delay aging is to get enough calcium and vitamin D every day, and to quit smoking and exercise every day.
Men, too, must take care of their bones even though osteoporosis affects them less (1 in 12 men compared to 1 in 3 women). For this reason, these recommendations also apply to men.
Although one or two drinks a day reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, you shouldn’t think that if you drink more, you’ll get more benefit. As you get older, alcohol can affect you more, because your body metabolizes more slowly and you’re more prone to falls. Also, drinking too much alcohol can increase the risk of breast cancer in women.
It is important, to prevent health problems, to have regular check-ups and lab tests. For example, if a person suffers from high blood pressure, only by taking blood pressure can detect it and thus have the advantage of preventing complications such as cardiovascular and renal problems. Early detection of cancer or diabetes can be life-saving.
To keep skin young and stay healthy, especially in the respiratory system, say no to smoking. Even passive smoking should be avoided because, according to research, people who are exposed to secondhand smoke have a 20 to 30% greater chance of developing lung cancer.
