Influencing ageing

SHALL WE TRUST THE NUMBER OF CANDLES ON OUR BIRTHDAY CAKE OR NOT? WE DON’T NEED TO COUNT THEM AS IT’S POSSIBLE TO INFLUENCE ONE’S BIOLOGICAL AGE AND TO FORGET ONE’S CHRONOLOGICAL AGE, BY LIVING ACTIVELY AND SERENELY, IT’S PROVEN!

Today, the European life expectation reaches 83.1 years for women and 77.5 years for men. We win yearly three months more! The secret lies in our telomeres. These are genetic markers of our biological age and consist in little protective hoods situated on our chromosomes termini. These DNA sticks influence the ageing quickness of our cells, impressive little things. The longer they are, the longer you’ll live. The shorter they are, the higher the risk to develop illnesses.

Genetic inheritance

Thus two persons of the same age may get telomeres of different sizes. One will be younger than the other, biologically speaking. The genetic heritage may explain this, but is not the sole factor. According to several studies, among which some of three American researchers – Nobel prize in physiology- medicine in 2009 – and Eli Putterman’s works (California University), the results highlight that changing one’s way of life may lengthen the telomeres up to 30%, which means that our DNA may be rejuvenated.

Let’s talk practically

• Stop smoking, as smoking is accelerating ageing, besides being one of the main causes of cancers.
• Eat less but eat food of better quality, as 30% less calories means 20% more life in better health.
• Practice regularly sport about half an hour per day. Alzheimer risk is halved, so are cardiovascular events, whereas rejuvenating our skin. Indeed, according to Pr. Mark Tarnopolsky research (Ontario University, April 2014), the quality of sportive people’s skin, aged of 40 years, is closer to that of twenty-somethings rather than to that of 40 years old sedentary persons. The beneficial effects even amplify over time: volunteers over 65 years accepting to bike 3 times a week during half an hour have experienced a skin-rejuvenation of ten years after a three-months training.
• Monitor one’s stress thanks to full-awareness meditation, diaphragmatic breath or yoga.
• Make love as it lowers stress and protects against some cancers. Three times a week allows lengthening one’s life expectancy of ten years!

Is it possible to avoid putting on weight after 45 years, the million-dollars question.

In fact, we secrete less growth hormone and less testosterone, which are the hormones responsible of muscular mass gains and of fats combustion. If we intend to boost this production, the solution is muscle -building. A muscle never works isolated. Thus make global exercises (such as squat, cores, pumps, lunges, climber’s movements) during 40-45 mn sessions, twice a week.

You're absolutely right with the positive mental approach. In this domain,I think there are daily discoveries - like those about the positive mental approach for decreasing the risk of cancers. Bravo!
