Is It Possible To Slow Down The Aging Process?

Anti-Aging Strategies You Can Look Into

Anti Aging Strategies have almost become mythical, as we advance in your search for optimal health and everlasting beauty!  But more than the scams of far too many beauty lotions and miracle potions for endless youth, most of us do want to age well and healthy. So, together great products and procedures that can aid you in your quest for beautiful skin and youthfulness, that we can talk a lot more about with you at Lasair Aesthetic Health in Denver. We also bring you some tips to easy things you can do now that will help you feel better and be healthier later on in life.

 

Red Wine?  Yes please!

Resveratrol, a plant compound found in grapes, blueberries, and red wine, has proven to have anti-aging powers. According to the Huffington Post a recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism found resveratrol does “prolong lifespan.”  Researchers at the National Institute of Health and the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research found that: “resveratrol’s anti-aging effects only works when a specific gene is present, namely SIRT1. In other words, no SIRT1, no anti-aging effects — which means that resveratrol’s influence on the gene is significant.  Consequently, the study now reinforces the claim that resveratrol can prolong lifespan and health-span by boosting the activity of mitochondria, the cell’s energy supplier.” i09 reports. According to The Los Angeles Times: “The SIRT1 gene, one of a family of genes, the Sirtuins, is believed to control the good function and longevity of cells and, in turn, of their host.”

Bottom line, studies point to the benefits of resveratrol, found in red grapes and blueberries, as an anti-aging strategy. However, excess consumption of alcohol, as in wine, can strongly dimish the positive effect of of your evening’s toast. So one glass of red wine is more than enough, or grapes and blueberries that would be just as good!

Have SEX!

Yes, you read that right, Anti-aging specialist Dr. Eric Braverman quoted by  The Doctors TV recommends it like this:

Pets Ease Stress and Lower Blood Pressure

Owning a cat could reduce your risk of a heart attack by nearly one third, researchers told delegates of the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference.
