How to Help Reduce The Signs of Aging

Arrest the Aging Process

by By Bette L. Hall CMA, NHC

The word aging conjures up negative images in our minds of forgetfulness, restlessness and sleepless nights, and wrinkled skin with dark spots on the face and hands. We no longer need to stand by and accept these things as part of the natural aging process.

Scientific studies show us that it is possible to enhance both the length and the quality of life.

The length of our life or the number of years we live is not important if we cannot have quality of life also. Who would want to live to be eighty or ninety years old if we cannot sleep or think right and you don’t even know the names of your family members? So what we need to do is to arrest the aging process.

A specific amino acid, acetyl-L-carnitine, can sharpen the mental abilities and stimulate the growth of  new neuritis. Robert Crayhon, M. S. recommends that we take carnitine and acetyl-Lcarnitine along with Co-Q10 and folic acid for improved cognitive function.

Restless nights and insomnia are often associated with aging. Lack of sleep has been associated with cytokines which have been linked to degenerative diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland and controls our wake/sleep cycle. As we age, the body’s natural production of melatonin is slowed. Supplementation with melatonin has shown to regulate sleep as well as slow brain aging.

Aging Factors

Wouldn't you like to stop the aging process in 11 minutes? That really isn't possible although there are things you can do to help reduce the signs of aging and add to the reversal of the aging process.

If I asked you to describe the aging process, what would you say? There's more to it than just wrinkles and age spots. I'm sure you could describe the aging process humans and the aging process of the skin and the process of aging skin.

You might be asking yourself, "What can i do to stop the aging process?" For example, are you wondering if you have oily skin will that delay the aging process? Is it true that the drier the skin, the more wrinkles appear?

What is the normal aging process vs dementia? What can affect the aging process? Should we slow down the process of aging?

These are questions that can be researched online. But it's a known fact that elderly healthy active living is crucial in slowing down the aging process. Healthy living & old age usually go hand in hand. Alive and well healthy living go together too.

Yes, the importance of healthy active living is crucial.

Hyaluronic Acid (HLA) is a vital component of our skin’s structure that diminishes as we age. HLA is responsible for moisture, suppleness, and elasticity of the skin and will improve the appearance of the skin when HLA is used both internally and externally.

In summary, the use of acetyl-L-carnitine, carnitine, Co-Q10, omega 3 fatty acid, melatonin, and hyaluronic acid can help you arrest the aging process. You can be mentally alert, cognitive, rested, attractive and full of life at any age.
