The Anti-Ageing Revolution
Ageing starts off noticeably with significant changes to the human bodies, for example changes in metabolism and hormone production, decreased immunity against infections and diseases, skin deteriorations and appearance of wrinkles, distortions in sleep patterns, changes to bones, joints and muscles, changes in the reproductive systems of male and female, changes in lungs, kidneys and central nervous system etc. While ageing theorists normally believed it is a result of wear and tear of the body exposed to ultra-violet light over time and as a product of metabolic rates, the actual argument against the rationale behind human ageing is still unknown (Kapoor, Dureja & Chadha, 2009).
As much as it is complex by nature, the effects of ageing are perceived differently by each human organ and have its ways of affecting some people more than the others. Few researchers argued that ageing is a result of lifelong biological and psychological processes that tend to wear out with the passage of time. Elements such as diet, heredity, illnesses, culture, physical activity and other environmental reasons are attributed to the ageing process, making it inevitable. However, scientific advancements over time have prescribed many anecdotes to outperform ageing process by keeping the skin fresh and the body, healthy (Lippman, 1987; Estes & Binney, 1989). Although there is no measure of the exact timeline before one ages, there are certainly tips and tricks and methods by which it can be altered and made easy a process, if not entirely stoppable.
The Biology of Ageing
Medical researchers and gerontologists have long remained concerned about the biological deteriorations taking place in humans and animals, which lead towards ageing. One of the most commonly cited cause of ageing is referred to the oxidative stress that produces damage to human DNA, lipids (fats) and proteins through the chemical oxidation that causes them to deteriorate (Graf, 2005). Unhealthy habits such as drug abuse, alcoholism and smoking produce these changes more rapidly, while oxidants are also producible through infections, poor health and inflammation. Another biological explanation for ageing comes from poor cellular functioning with the increase in chronical age resulting from an excessive accumulation of lipofuscin which is a deadly fatty substance for human beings and animals (Kapoor, Dureja & Chadha, 2009).
Different bio-gerontologists provided their own explanations for the ageing process while majority of scientific community deemed it as a predefined process controlled by human genetics. When more waste products build up in metabolic systems, cellular functions deteriorate, hence, leading to ageing. Another perpetrator often addressed as the main factor behind ageing is collagen that forms bodily proteins (Kapoor, Dureja & Chadha, 2009). With an increase in the age, these proteins become less efficient at functioning, and produce age-related symptoms such as wrinkles and weaker muscles. Evolutionary scientists and gerontologists provided the definition of ageing as nothing more than an uncontrollable accumulation of faults in human bodies that weakens their organs and causes poor cellular performances (Lippman, 1987). While biologically, the phenomenon is complex yet dynamic, age-related impairment of tissues and organs is perhaps, the most visible signs of normal ageing.
Ageing and Psychological Changes
Ageing is an inevitable reality that older people dread to realize. Like any other phenomenon that brings changes, ageing results in psychological impairments, dependency and mental distress (Birren & Schaie, 2001). Cognitive factors of memory and thinking abilities together with affective elements such as sadness, loneliness and depression impact upon an individual’s self-image. Result shows that out of an increasingly ageing populations living in rest homes and in community, almost 16-65% of these people suffer from a lack of energy, deprivation, lack of concentration and poor appetite, simply because they think they are not young and capable anymore (Estes & Binney, 1989; Kapoor, Dureja & Chadha, 2009). Financial dependence, social isolation, loneliness and poor nutritional levels are common stimulators for loss of interest in living, as a result of which these older citizens feel completely abandoned and dejected. This social participation minimizes, and they seem to isolate themselves from everything that is happening around. This social withdrawal gives way to anxiety and depression that makes death a relatively preferred option for these people to give up living! While the biological causes of ageing are not less frightening, the psychological pressures become visible relatively sooner, and carry deep impact on the individuals’ well-being (Birren & Schaie, 2001).
Can ageing be avoided?
There are certain secret tips and treatments in the medicinal world that can slow down the ageing process, or at least prevent from severe age-related deteriorations. Just as important as it is to prevent skin infections and wrinkles form emerging outside, it is also essential to take adequate care of bodily systems and functions so that good health could be maintained for a longer time (Kapoor, Dureja & Chadha, 2009). Therapists, doctors and yoga experts recommend some universal lifestyles changes as part of keeping fit and ageless. These include being happy and stress-free, eating fresh produce, taking adequate sleep, staying active and involving in exercise, moisturizing the skin and hydrating it and avoiding unnecessary makeup and artificial chemicals on the skin (Graf, 2005). While everyone knows about these secrets, not many people literally follow these tips for a lifetime. In this case, while they tend to maintain a relatively healthy regime, the skin still weakness and age appears inevitably.
NutriNZ believes that serums, facial cleansers and moisturizers can do some justice to the skin, while there is more attention that needs to be paid towards the body. This involves taking more minerals, more nutritional supplements, and anti-oxidants that could radiate in the muscles and organs, making it stronger and less aged. In this regard, three secret recipes emerge from the wonderland of NutriNZ that has taken the medicinal world by storm in providing best anti-ageing solutions. What else do you need?
