May is “Older Americans Month.”
Now, I don’t know specifically at what age one earns the title of “older” but I would guess it’s referring to people 50 and over.
I’ve been in the health field for over 30 years and I can say that it certainly seems like things start breaking down once people hit the big 5-0.
But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Because there is a whole lot you can do to help keep your body young on the inside…
And when you do that, you’ll probably look younger on the outside too!
Here’s what I mean.
Ways to tap into your inner fountain of youth!
As we age our bodies face certain challenges that, if left to progress, can impact how we feel and accelerate the aging process.
But the good news is that you can take very effective measures to counteract these challenges and help keep your body younger on the inside and outside!
Here are the biggest bangs for your buck to consider in terms of fighting the biological clock:
Nothing lights the fires of disease, pain and aging like inflammation.
Inflammation is a significant force behind heart disease and cancer—our 2 top killers—plus arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, type 2 diabetes, stroke and degenerative joint disease.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are Nature’s anti-inflammatory, but unfortunately due to our modern diets that are heavy in processed foods, vegetable oils and meats from grain-fed animals, most of us are seriously deficient in these crucial fats.
And at the same time, our diets are brimming with inflammation-stirring Omega-6 fats, which creates a topsy-turvy imbalance of fats in your body and rolls out the red carpet for inflammation!
To make sure your body maintains a health-supporting level of Omega-3 EFAs, supplementation with a pure pharmaceutical-grade fish oil formula like VitalMega-3 is crucial.
VitalMega-3 provides a soothing 1,200 mg of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats in every 2-capsule dose, including 600 mg of EPA and 400 mg of DHA (the Omega-3 superstars).
Maintain a healthy gut microbiome
Let’s face it—as we age it becomes more and more likely that we are medicated in some way.
Unfortunately, most medications disrupt your gut microbiome, which can weaken your immune system functioning as well as cause gas, bloating and constipation.
In addition, your body eliminates excess cholesterol and old hormones through the GI tract, but if your gut environment is less than stellar and your BMs are dicey, you are running the risk of these substances being reabsorbed into circulation and putting you at risk for elevated cholesterol and hormone-dependent cancers.
But you can go a long way in supporting tip-top gut health with a full-spectrum probiotic supplement like Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula.
Super Shield’s outstanding, well-studied blend of 13 strains carry out their unique “specialties” in how they enhance your health, plus together they provide strong support for your gut wall, immune system and healthy, regular BMs.
Stay in shape
Regular exercise is literally the fountain of youth.
It helps your body eliminate age-accelerating toxins, it increases your heart strength, helps improve digestion, promotes better sleep, helps lower blood pressure, helps you maintain a healthy bodyweight and by strengthening the muscles surrounding your joints, it can decrease the symptoms of arthritis!
You can do it! Just get your doctor’s OK, start slowly and work your way up. Every little bit counts
Fight free radicals
Free radicals are probably secondary only to inflammation in terms of triggering disease and feeling old.
Now, free radicals are a by-product of normal cell metabolism, but the problem arises when they get out of control…so it’s crucial to make sure you have enough antioxidants to keep these buggers in line.
Antioxidants are protective nutrients that include vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium and alpha lipoic acid. They come to your rescue by fighting harmful free radicals and minimizing or preventing the damage to your cells that they cause.
Having a healthy diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is vital to getting the antioxidants you need.
Also, supplementing with a multi-vitamin and mineral formula like Super Core can help ensure your body has health-supporting levels of these crucial nutrients.
In addition to the antioxidant-rich vitamins E and C as well as selenium and zinc in Super Core, our special formula contains the well-studied antioxidant carotenoids lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin, as well as resveratrol and the “cream of the antioxidant crop”—alpha lipoic acid!
Now THAT’S complete!
Plus Super Core also has natural anti-inflammatories that can help counteract any inflammation you may have going on.
Feel younger by the minute!
Do what you can to fight back at the aging forces that we all face.
I bet you’ll see a tremendous difference in how you feel and look!
And know this! I’m right there with you. I’m 55 and what I have talked about up above is EXACTLY what I do every single day. Here I am saying hi to you from my office in a picture that was taken in March 2018.
While there are times once in a while that I feel my age, I can honestly say that most times, I feel 25 years younger.
You can too! Do it now.
To your health,
