Best Ways To Stop Aging
Natural Anti-Aging Measures
There are many lifestyle changes that will help to strengthen the body and its immune system. Physical
activity and regular exercise top the list. Simply moving – at least three times a week for twenty minutes
– will benefit your cardiovascular system, improve the strength of your bones and tone of your muscles,
and bolster your immune system. In addition, exercise release endorphins into the system that elevate
mood and fend of depression while working to keep the mind sharp.
Protect yourself from the spread of disease by something as simple as washing your hands multiple
times during the day. Eat a diet rich in antioxidants which are believed to neutralize the effects of
chemicals in your body called free radicals that are thought to contribute to the aging process and have
been linked to cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants include Vitamins A, C, and E as well as lycopene,
omega-3 fatty acids, and folate.
Although it becomes more difficult to sleep with increasing age, adequate sleep has a profound
influence on stress and disease resistance. Seven to eight hours a night are recommended. Also do not
ignore the psychological benefits to be drawn from laughter, positive thinking, social interaction, time
spent with friends and family, and something as healthfully indulgent as a nice long soak in a hot tub.
People who are enjoying their lives and drawing emotional sustenance from living will be healthier and
will stay young longer.
Artificial Anti-Aging Measures
For people who do not get enough antioxidants from their diets, supplements are often the solution. A
quality multi-vitamin / mineral tablet is a good idea for all adults given the rapid pace of modern life and

growth hormone) to reverse the effects of aging, but the jury is still out on the efficacy of these
There are many anti-aging creams on the market. Beyond moisturizing the skin and supplying it with
vitamins, formulations containing either Botox or Retinol have become increasingly popular. These
creams have the effect of removing or lessening facial wrinkles but will only work for a limited time.
Some people go so far as to have Botox or collagen injections to “puff up” lines and wrinkles but for
many the next step is a cosmetic procedure such as thermage (radio frequency emission
treatments), facial liposuction, or an actual surgical face lift procedure.
Exercise for anti-aging, skin care products to fight wrinkles, a diet rich in antioxidants, a good
attitude – all this things will fight the effects of the passage of time on your body. Many times when
premature aging takes hold, a lifestyle change is in order. Be aware of what’s happening with your
body and be prepared to take charge to change it.
