Legends and Truth about Anti-Aging

Older Healthy Looking Couple
Look and feel great as you age.

Each one of us starts to age the instant we are born. It is not possible to prevent aging; if you are living, you are aging.

However, numerous things exist which you can carry out to sustain an active and healthy you and to get rid of or at least restrict a lot of elements which lead to aging.

From the time Ponce de Leon went looking for the Fountain of Youth, individuals have been searching for methods to control the process of aging.

Advancements in the Fight against Aging

Wonderful improvements have been made by medical science to keep individuals alive longer by avoiding illnesses and curing them and assisting people to live more joyful lives which are also healthier.

There is a continuous rise in normal life expectancy and a lot of us can anticipate a life which is a lot longer compared to our ancestors. In reality, our bodies were built with the capability of healing themselves so long as you take appropriate care of yourself.

Your body consists of around 100 trillion or 100,000,000,000,000 cells that are living. They use appropriate food to maintain strength and health. All these trillion cells die and are substituted at constant intervals by other cells. Your whole body is practically totally restored every few years; in reality, you are a different person from before!

Body Cells and Anti-Aging

How your cells operate is the answer to anti-aging:

After the death of a cell three possible things must occur:

1. If appropriate nutrition has not been provided to a cell, its substitute is going to be the cell’s weaker version. In such a case, your body is deteriorating.

2. The substitute cell might be as strong as its forerunner. In this instance, your body normally stays the same.

3. The third likelihood is that the new cell is more powerful than the earlier one.

You are currently really renewing the body and overturning the process of aging. This can occur only if you provide your cells with a lot of appropriate food energy to function with.

At times, normally when we are in the late twenties or early thirties, a lot of us begin taking note of those initial signs that we are no longer children; the appearance of a number of gray hairs, facial wrinkles and the beginning of drooping of the skin.

Other signs appear slowly as more time passes; it is a bit difficult to wake up in the morning, our sight and hearing are no longer the same and our sex life is not as energetic as we recall.

As we check around, we see similar things taking place to our family and friends. A lot of us normally embrace what we view as nature’s unavoidable process.

Your Age is Determined by Your Feelings

If you consider yourself growing older and feel this way, you are then! The state of your mind has an impact on the happenings inside your body. In the meantime, you witness your body growing older; therefore, you feel older which strengthens your body’s aging processes. It turns into a cycle which is vicious.

You Can Change Things

As you become aware of your body appearing and feeling younger, there will be improvement in your mindset. This encourages you to go on with your practices for anti-aging which creates a loop for favorable feedback, rather than an unfavorable one. Therefore, this process speeds up.

Today, individuals are living longer because of enhanced medical breakthroughs, raised awareness of how vital a healthy lifestyle is and other elements which are connected.

The Body of Humans Can Withstand a lot of Mistreatment and Neglect

It is not every time that we consider our bad habits as it might take decades or years for the impacts to show. However, if you neglect yourself for a long time you might one day discover yourself suffering in your old age with a huge range of illnesses and complaints such as trouble with sight, hearing, cancer, brittle bones, heart disease and a lot of other issues.

However, it just takes awareness and a small amount of work to avoid many if not all of these widespread issues connected with age from showing. No quick cure or magic pill is available and some effort will be required on our part. However, the outcomes will be worth it.

To you, how much would it be worth it to derive pleasure in your last years as a grownup who is active, healthy and capable of continuing to carry out a lot of the things you adore most?

“Do You Want To Live Forever?” was a Channel 4 Documentary following the revolutionary life-extension and immortality ideas of this somewhat eccentric scientist, Dr. Aubrey de Grey.

This show is all about the radical ideas of a Cambridge biomedical gerontologist called Aubrey de Grey who believes that, within the next 20-30 years, we could extend life indefinitely by addressing seven major factors in the aging process. He describes his work as Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS).

Retired USN "Mustang"(Enlisted to Officer) Officer. World traveler, been to 38 countries.

After retiring in 1994, I kept myself busy traveling as an online web programmer. Maybe you heard of me, Have Web Sites Will Travel? I then retired for a second time in 2010. Recently to keep busy I started a 3rd career, a career dedicated to me. My full time dedication is to my health and fitness. My job is to research everything to do with health and fitness (Yes, sexual health) and everything else related. I workout 6 times a week, closely monitor my diet and nutrition.

I definitely don’t want to live forever! But I want to “live while I’m alive” as they say. Maybe we can’t turn back the clock, but if I can maximize my quality of life by slowing it down and making good choices, then I want to.

It’s valid that some anti-aging products can make your skin wind up chafed. Be that as it may, as a general rule, these reactions happen in light of the fact that the item isn’t suited to your skin. In the event that you don’t attempt it on however, how might you know? Continuously apply an item on a little spot of your skin to check whether you have unfavorably susceptible responses to any of the fixings.

Nature can’t be cheated, no matter how far we try to slow it down, it will definitely catch up with us. However, we have to give it a go.

Thanks for letting know some interesting facts regarding anti aging. It’s good to know how to look good in the age of 60’s and more.

Rick Morris

I have to admit I am always looking out for anything that seems to be a fountain of youth. I won’t go for plastic surgery, but natural paths to looking and feeling younger I am all for. Thank you for sharing so many good ideas on how I can get back to where I want to be an stay there for as long as possible,

Edward F.

Thank you Ray for posting this and also thank you GarryN for the video you have posted.. I has been a pleasure to read such interesting facts and tips!!

Anti-aging has become a big lifestyle change for me. I feel better, I look better and it feels like I am years younger.


Things are bad enough that we cannot trust anything that we read online, now we have to deal with myths and what is actually proven?

Steve Pierce

That was a great video! I really like to watch things like that because it gets my brain waves moving and my creative side thinking a lot deeper. I am not sure anyone will ever life forever, but the basics behind his theories make sense.

Sam Sidhu

This was interesting. I don’t kid myself and expect anything to turn back the clock on aging. But I pursue anti-aging because it has to be a better wellness plan than accepting I am getting older by the minute, right?

M. Newman

We are living longer, more than double the life expectancy of someone born in the middle ages. The challenge is to enjoy a quality of life worth living in those extra years. I see morbidly obese people, chain smokers and drinkers and know they may be alive by the time they reach my age, but I wonder if theirs is going to be an existence worth living. I do my best to keep fit and healthy and wish everyone would, but trying to tell people they should do the same is like talking to a wall.

Mike Walsh

This was a good post. I am not vain, nor am I hung up on getting older. But if you can avoid it, or at least looking like you are aging, why not go for it, right?

Like most Americans I have let myself go. Until now that is. I was with my teenage daughter when I was mistakenly referred to me as her grandfather. It upset my daughter far more than it upset me. At the moment I committed myself to slim down and work on becoming healthier. I am even considering dying my hair ūüėČ

D. Smith

This was a good read. I read an article not long ago about a worm like sea creature that never dies of natural causes. Its cells just keep reproducing and in some cases the creature can actually grow younger. In other words, if not eaten by larger prey, which many are, the creature can actually live forever. This seems to be the case with people, if we can create an ideal enviornment for reproduction of strong cells.

John Turner

Nature always finds a way to kill, unfortunately. Living forever probably won’t be possible but at least we can try and hope.

John S.

I am blessed with a young gene I guess. 63 and no hair but no wrinkles either. Often mistaken for 40+. Maybe there is something to happiness keeps you young as you say. I do nothing but avoid negative people and avoid stress… and I have never smoked cigarettes. Interesting to read this anyway.


I would suggest to watch some facts about aging:

Interesting video.

And I believe that if you feel in your mind young – you will feel better. Don’t stress yourself about I’m getting old… I’m too old.. I can’t do… YOU CAN! Just change your thinking.
