7 tips to age less quickly
While waiting for the miracle treatment, we can slow aging differently.
1. Play asceticism. Professor David Sinclair is formal: exit the feasts that oxidize the body. The ideal would be to reduce by one third his daily contributions by favoring fruits and vegetables. Fasting is also recommended for two days a year or more if possible.
2. Stop the toxic ones. Smoking or drinking excessively quickly damages the DNA and our cells.
3. Abuse resveratrol. This is the favorite molecule of Professor Sinclair. It is found in cocoa, nuts, blackcurrant, pomegranate, green tea and wine. It is produced by environmental or pathogenic stress (grapes that needed to defend themselves from aggression). For wine, choose small vintages (a glass of easy-drinking Merlot).
4. Renew with his sneakers. In 2009, Dr. Blackburn won the Nobel Prize for Medicine for discovering telomeres. It's a bit like the plastic end caps of our laces, except they are placed at the end of our DNA helices. The longer and more resistant they are, the more our DNA remains intact. During life, telomeres get shorter. The researchers observed that a regular (or even daily) physical activity allowed them to be lengthened by 10%. For "antibaskets", some plants also have very beneficial effects: purslane, Ginkgo biloba or milk thistle.
5. Take a break on the sugar. In excess, it causes the glycation responsible for the aging of our body. Two glasses of soda a day for ten years can age our body six years. But it is valid for all refined sugars.
6. Make love. By spending two glide sessions twice a week (against one), you can gain seven years of life expectancy. With orgasms, it's even more ...
7. Block inflammation. The idea is to stop the natural inflammatory process of our cells, source of osteoarthritis, chronic pain but also more severe diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or cancers. Some foods have already been proven: turmeric, wild garlic, cabbage, seafood or pineapple.
