Ageing is not an illness!
As we get older we don’t need to look or feel ill. Growing older is inevitable but the ill health that so often comes with age is avoidable. Ageing is not correlated with your physical age so much as with your eating and lifestyle habits.
Ageing is merely a physiological condition which makes your body more vulnerable to disease and damage. An incorrect diet as well as exposure to pollutants, radiation, toxin and many other environmental and lifestyle factors can cause serious damage to your DNA. It is this genetic damage which causes the production of abnormal proteins, which in turn leads to defective cell repair, loss of cell elasticity, and other symptoms of the aging process.
Your cell metabolism, protein synthesis, immune function, and the biochemical functioning of all your body cells are all finely regulated by the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland’s hormones, whose secretion is reduced during the aging process. Of particular interest in the ageing process are oxygen free radicals, which take an electron away from another molecule. Thus interfering with many biological activities such as the normal function of the cell membranes, protein synthesis, and continuous repair of the DNA. This harmful process is called oxidation. The antioxidant formula in a very well balanced diet will make a positive difference in your health by nullifying the oxidation activity of these harmful free radicals. Too much sugar can create more damage than free radicals, as sugar can attach to free amino groups on proteins. This process, called glycation, seems to be the base of aging activity.
The right diet will fight the glycation process, by regulating your daily intake of aldehydes and ketones from your diet.
