Although in your teens and 20’s it may have seemed impossible, the truth of the matter is that aging is a fact of life. Old age does not discriminate and will visit us all, regardless of our income level or social standing. You may have noticed, however, that movie stars and famous personalities seem to age a little later than the rest of us. While genetics do play a role in how fast we age, there are all sorts of factors that contribute to the appearance and experience of aging including fitness, nutrition and stress. The likelihood is, if you had a team of fitness coaches and nutritionists working hard to get you ready for your latest action movie role, you’d probably seem a little younger too! Luckily, it doesn’t take a million dollar income and a team of assistants to put a hold on the aging process.
Whether you’re young and full of energy, or experiencing the creaky joints and aches and pains we associate with old age, it’s never too late or too early to start looking after your body. After all, you’re in it for the long run! We’ve put together a few tips to keep you youthful for a lifetime, including Ageless Vitality, a daily supplement, formulated by experts to give you all the nutrition your body needs to keep you youthful and energetic no matter what the calendar says.
It may sound too simple, but if you want to look and feel youthful and energetic at any age, make sure you’re getting enough sleep. The average person needs at least 8-9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best and as we age the responsibilities and stresses of daily life can often make it hard to relax and catch those quality z’s. One study (1) from Penn State College of Medicine found that lack of sleep was more detrimental to men’s intellectual health than it was to women. Restorative sleep is essential to regulating brain function and keeping you sharp and energetic.
A few tips for a good night’s sleep include being sure not to eat just before bed, removing computers, phones and other devices from your bedroom and creating bedtime habits like drinking a cup of soothing camomile tea every night as you wind down. If you need something to do while you relax, try reading instead of watching T.V.
Exercise is key to overall health and may significantly slow down the aging process. A 2018 study (2) from the University of Birmingham and King's College London compared 125 amateur cyclists with a control group of people who did not exercise regularly. The researchers found that the expected loss of muscle mass and strength that we associate with aging was not present in the cyclists. They also found no increased body fat or high cholesterol levels in the group who exercised regularly and the men in the study showed consistently high testosterone levels. Even your immune system benefits from regular exercise. You don’t have to run out and buy yourself a track bike either. Research (3) suggests that just 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day is enough to kickstart a whole slew of health benefits so there’s no excuse not to keep moving.
Diet and Supplements
As the old saying goes, "you are what you eat," and that is never more true than with aging bodies. While you’re young you may be able to scarf down a daily double cheeseburger and fries without a care in the world, but as you age, your metabolism slows down and your food choices become more important. Chose a diet high in antioxidants like blueberries, spinach and kale to keep your cells healthy. Be sure you’re getting plenty of fiber as this could lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Omega-3 Fatty Acids are great for heart health and can be found in fatty fish like tuna and salmon. A great way to support a healthy diet is to take a daily supplement which will ensure that you’re getting the well-rounded nutrition you need as you age.
Ageless Vitality is specifically formulated to support healthy aging and contains antioxidant vitamins A & E, zinc to keep your immune system functioning at its best, and selenium which, according to the arthritis foundation, may help keep your joints healthy and could even prevent illnesses associated with aging like rheumatoid arthritis.
If you’re a smoker and you need one more reason to quit, consider your age. Smoking not only contributes to and causes a host of health problems that will slow you down prematurely, it also wreaks havoc on your skin. Smoking interferes with the blood supply that keeps your skin looking plump and healthy and some estimates suggest that the average smoker looks about 1.4 times the age of their non-smoking counterparts. One study (4) from Johns Hopkins also found that smokers were 4 x as likely to report feeling unrested after a night’s sleep. If you’ve tried to quit before and are having trouble kicking the habit, find a support group online and set yourself up for success. Your older self will thank you.
So, if you want to stay youthful and energetic well into your golden years, make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep, fit in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day, quit that nicotine habit and support a healthy diet with Ageless Vitality, one of the very best supplements on the market to make sure you stay as young as you feel.
