Aging, like death is an inevitable process in our body. But the rate of aging can be controlled, particularly due to some changes in lifestyle.
Drink more water. Whether you are drinking eight glasses of water a day? Don’t underestimate this number. Aging makes it harder to absorb certain nutrients. That is why it is important to maintain the body moisture.
Exercise. Physical loads prevent the inevitable in the elderly neurodegenerative deterioration in the body. In particular, a positive effect on the brain.
Eat fatty acids omega-3. These nutrients affect the functionality of the brain, reduce inflammation, help build and restore cell membranes. Fatty acids omega-3 found in oily fish like trout, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines. You can also get them from nuts and seeds, including sunflower seeds, Chia and walnuts.
Eat more vitamin B. B Vitamins like folate, B6 and B12 are extremely important for maintaining cognitive functionality. Eat foods with lots of vitamins – meat, chicken, oysters, eggs and milk.
Get enough sleep. The less people sleep, the faster the processes of aging, and the rather spoiled skin, covered with wrinkles. It is very important to sleep at least 7 and not more than 9 hours every day to achieve the maximum effect, writes The Health Site.
