We always want to review our life style so that we can live healthily to our full potential at every given age. In my view every age is beautiful and I absolutely love the term “ageing gracefully” rather then pathetically inducing unnatural youth. A balanced life filled with exercise (according to your body and age) + nutrition’s + adequate rest are potent scavengers of free radicals. Which implicated in ageing faster and in a number of human diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, malaria and in rheumatoid arthritis.
- Follow a balanced training program that emphasizes on regular exercise and eat 5 servings of fruit or vegetables per day. This will ensure that you are developing your inherent antioxidant systems and that your diet is providing the necessary components.
- Weekend warriors should strongly consider a more balanced approach to exercise. If failing that, consider supplementation.
- Look for upcoming FDA recommendations, but be wary of advertising and media hype.
- Do not over supplement. The supplements of antioxidants are believed to help protect the damage of body from free-radicals. But before you go out and stock your pantry with mega-doses of these vitamins, be warned: more is not always better. The long-term effects of large doses of these nutrients has not been proven yet. Other chemicals and substances found in natural sources of antioxidants may also be responsible for the beneficial effects.
❤ Lastly if we can incorporate being around nature and deep breathe looking at its beauty and feel nourished every day, there is nothing like it!! life can be lived beautifully at every junction with mindfulness. Cheers to happy and healthy life!! 🙂
