Like it or not, that darn biological clock is ticking away for all of us.
And that means that our bodies will inevitably start to show signs of being, well, worn out!
Plus our environment doesn’t help this cause! There are several factors all around us that definitely don’t work in our favor when it comes to aging.
Even if you have the best diet in the world and exercise like an Olympian, there are certain facts and forces that you can’t entirely eliminate and they can take a tremendous toll on your health.
Here’s what I mean.
Five inconvenient health truths associated with aging
Like it or not, all of us will face these realities to a certain degree, especially once we reach age 40:
1- As we age, our body’s production of digestive enzymes decreases. This can lead to acid reflux, gas, bloating and constipation.
2- Our metabolism also slows down and we are less efficient at absorbing nutrients (and more efficient at gaining weight!).
3- Stress compromises our immune system functioning, making us more susceptible to sickness and disease. Plus stress also causes depletion of nutrients, especially vitamin C.
4- Our food is inherently less nutritious than it once was due to soil depletion and bio-engineering of crops. As a matter of fact, one study concluded that we would have to eat 8 oranges today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our grandparents would have gotten from 1!
5- The increasing prevalence of nutrient-poor processed foods on our shelves is a main driving force behind skyrocketing rates of deficiencies and disease, including cancer and heart disease.
Don’t wave the white flag of defeat yet!
The good news here is that, even though there are forces working against us, there are also specific measures we can take to fight back and preserve our health!
1- Start with your diet
Now, don’t you dare throw your hands up in the air or use lower nutrient content in foods as justification to eat whatever garbage you want.
Although it’s true that we aren’t getting as many nutrients as we used to from our food supply, fresh, wholesome real foods are STILL the best nourishment for your body!
Do your grocery shopping in the outer perimeter of the store—fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, poultry and fish, dairy, real butter and eggs. Also check out farmer’s markets and CSA (community supported agriculture) opportunities in your area to get the freshest foods at dramatic savings.
Also, in addition to what foods you eat, it also matters what foods you eat together--especially if you want to support your body’s absorption of nutrients and pave the way for better digestion (and less gas, bloating and heartburn).
And my Great Taste No Pain system can help you with that!
Great Taste No Pain teaches you how to pair foods in your meals to encourage nice, smooth digestion. Plus it includes a collection of recipes that are lip-smacking delicious and easy to prepare!
2- Supportive supplements
Here are the very best supplements to consider when counteracting age-related issues and poor food quality:
Super Core Multi-Vitamin and Mineral Formula. Super Core provides a therapeutic dose of essential vitamins and minerals to help ensure the presence of those essential nutrients necessary for all of your body’s metabolic processes. Plus it contains natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to fight disease-causing free radicals and inflammation!
Super Shield Multi-Strain Probiotic Formula. Stress, toxins and poor food choices all take their toll on your gut microbiome, wrecking your digestion and weakening your immune system. So it’s essential to help replenish those crucial friendly microbes with a top-notch, full-spectrum formula like Super Shield.
VitalMega-3 Omega-3 fish oil formula. The health benefits of Omega-3 essential fatty acids are practically never-ending, and include lower blood pressure and cholesterol, depression prevention, lower risk of heart disease and cancer, and easing inflammatory conditions like arthritis! And VitalMega-3 is as good as it gets, giving you 1,200 mg of Omega-3 EFAs, including the superstars EPA and DHA.
Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B. Vitamin D deficiency is rampant in our society, and is most assured a factor behind our ever-increasing rates of heart disease, cancer and autoimmune conditions. Optimum DK Formula provides a health-supporting 5,000 IU dose of vitamin D3, plus also includes its partners Vitamins K1 and K2 and the mineral boron, which together support strong bone, cardiovascular and immune health.
Digestizol Max Digestive Enzyme Formula. Once your body’s ability to produce enzymes is diminished, you can’t wave a magic wand and make more. That’s when a complete enzyme formula like Digestizol Max can be a life-saver! Its well-balanced enzyme blend can work alongside your body’s own enzymes and help pave the way for complete and proper digestion of your foods (and less heartburn!).
Now you are armed with some real strategies to help fight back at the biological clock and our increasingly challenging environment!
By the way, my personal regimen includes following my own meal planning advice in Great Taste No Pain, plus taking Super Core, Super Shield, VitalMega-3 and Optimum DK Formula every day!
And at age 55 (that’s a brand-new picture of me up above), I’m feeling 30 years younger than I am!
To your health,
