Interested in Healthy Ageing?

  • Written by News Company


We usually do notice, but the first biological signs that we are aging appear in our mid-20s. These changes become more apparent as we enter our 40s, and by the time we are 50, they are undeniable. Since we all age, the important question is: Are we aging healthily?

 

First, I am going to share 8 basic changes that take place in our bodies as we age and then tell you the secret to aging healthily.

 

How do our bodies change as we age?

 

  1. Skin - The collagen and elastin in our skin gradually degenerates causing sagging and wrinkles. Along with this, the body produces less oils which leaves our skin and hair dry.

  2. Muscles - Muscle tissues atrophy and lose their strength over time. Changes in the nervous system also cause the muscle fibres to contract at a slower rate.

  3. Bones - 60% of our bones are composed of calcium and other minerals. With age, bones begin to lose these minerals which leaves them weak and brittle.

  4. Joints - Joints change because cartilage wears thin and lubricating fluid decreases. The tendons and ligaments around the joints also atrophy which limits our range of motion and causes instability.

  5. Senses - Eyesight and hearing begin to fade in our 40s as tissue becomes stiff and nerve pathways lose their efficiency. Taste also deteriorates as we lose taste buds.

  6. Nervous system - Nerves begin conducting impulses more slowly, while our brain and spinal cord lose cells and mass. These changes affect our mobility, thought processes and every other bodily function.

  7. Endocrine system - The endocrine system produces hormones that regulate metabolism, tissue function, sleep, mood and more. Over time, endocrine glands decrease hormone production and hormone receptors become less sensitive.

  8. Vital organs - Our hearts, digestive tracts, lungs and other vital organs lose varying degrees of function as we age, because the cells they are made of grow larger. These larger cells function less efficiently and multiply at a slower rate.

 

How can we maintain good health as we age?

 

Eating a nutrient-rich diet every single day is the secret to keeping your bodies strong as you age. Your daily diet should include:

 

  • Protein - Proteins contain hundreds of amino acids. These amino acids help

build and repair all types of tissue, as well as regulate enzymes and hormones.

  • Fibre - fibre encourages food to move through our digestive tract at a healthy rate. This improves the microflora in our intestines and boosts the digestion and absorption of nutrients.

  • Vitamins- Our bodies need 13 different vitamins to function properly. Supplying your body with these vitamins every day will improve mental acuity, heart health, bone mass and in short, your overall health.

  • Minerals - Calcium, phosphorus, potassium and selenium are just a few of the minerals our bodies use to strengthen bones, increase immunity, produce hormones and maintain nerve impulses.



Eating a diet rich in protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals every day can be difficult, but Isagenix makes this easier.
