7 Easy Anti-Aging Tricks You Can Use Today
Some anti-aging advice is obvious. Control your weight… work out… get plenty of sleep. But lots of people want simple, quick, and effective ways to kick-start their anti-aging program. Maybe you do, too. So here are 7 easy anti-aging tricks you can use today.
#1 – Take a good natural multivitamin.
This may sound simplistic, but it may be just what your immune system needs. Doctors at University College London showed low nutrition levels are linked to immune system decline, especially as you age. According to one of the study’s authors, improving your nutritional status may reverse immune system decline.1
#2 – Boost brain health with garlic.
Garlic is famous for everything from boosting heart health to helping clear up acne. Now we know aged garlic extract contains a compound – called FruArg – that can defend brain cells against damage. According to a study in the journal PLOS One, FruArg may help blocking aging effects in the brain.
#3 – Have a cup of coffee.
Health-wise, coffee goes in and out of fashion. But when it comes to aging, that morning cup of Joe may be just what the doctor ordered. According to a study in Pharmaceutical Research, a compound found in coffee – CGA – may help your body use insulin more effectively. And that means better blood sugar control.
#4 – Nip hardened arteries in the bud.
A 2014 Swedish study showed that lowering cholesterol can lead to clearer, healthier arteries, if it’s caught early enough. Remember that garlic extract I suggested for brain health? It also promotes healthy cholesterol levels.
#5 – Eat your greens.
Want to keep your mind sharp? Try a serving of spinach, kale, or mustard greens. According to scientists at Rush University Medical Center, the vitamin K in leafy greens supports mental sharpness. They linked eating two servings of green leafy vegetables a day to an improved mental capacity. How improved? 11 years younger than people who avoided leafy greens.
#6 – Eat protein with every meal.
Americans tend to eat carbs for breakfast and protein at supper. But University of Texas researchers discovered eating a full serving of protein at every meal boosted muscle protein production. In other words, to stay fitter and more muscular, go for the eggs instead of the bagel at breakfast.
#7 – Make your physical activity fun.
A 2014 study discovered that how you look at physical activity makes a huge difference. If you see your workouts as fun, you’ll snack less afterwards than if you see them as exercise. So… if jogging is a chore, don’t jog. Find an activity you enjoy instead. Perhaps gardening, cycling, or golfing. As long as you’re having fun, you’re less likely to snack afterwards.
So often, anti-aging seems like a chore. But it doesn’t have to be. There are many small steps you can take to slow – or even reverse – the effects of time. These 7 are a good start.
Yours in continued good health,
Dr Kenneth Woliner, M.D.
