Everyone is dying to achieve longevity! What an irony but its true! People now have been very greedy of obtaining youth in many ways than one.  Upon reading this article giving away the 7 Anti-Ageing Tips to Make a Century Mark, bet a lot of people would start brewing their natural but long process of invisible potion of effort to long life. Yes they are a handful but you might want to try it out!


“1. Floss: Periodontal disease might be directly related to systemic inflammation and cardiovascular risk, according to an article in The Lancet. The strength of association between tooth-brushing, flossing and heart disease has not been 100 percent clinically proven, but according to the American Academy of Periodontology, people with gum disease are twice as likely to have heart disease. What’s the connection? There are a few theories, including that inflammation of the gums can cause the arteries to accumulate plaque.

2. Eat Indian food: Curcuminoids are the active ingredient compounds in the yellow spice called turmeric, which is found in Indian curry. For more than a few thousand years, curcumin has been used as a healing agent in Eastern medicine. Western medicine has recently caught on, with a plethora of scientific studies backing curcumin’s anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and liver-cleansing properties. Dr. Johnny Bowden, author of the anti-aging book, “The Most Effective Ways to Live Longer,” and a speaker at the first annual anti-aging conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2010, advises, “Put turmeric on as much food as you can, but because it’s not super-absorbable in food, you should buy a curcumin supplement as well.”

A study in Clinical Cancer Research advocated for curcumin being evaluated for the prevention or treatment of cancers. Another study in Phytotherapy Research magazine presented the first evidence for the “safety and superiority of curcumin treatment in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA).”

3. Take an aspirin: If you’ve previously had a heart attack or stroke, popping an aspirin a day may extend your life. Though daily aspirin consumption remains controversial — some doctors recommend it across the board, while others prescribe aspirin only for those with a heart condition — one study published in The Lancet concluded that taking an aspirin a day could significantly reduce the risk of dying prematurely from cancer. After five years, the group taking aspirin had developed almost a 40 percent lower chance of developing cancer than the control group, which did not take any aspirin. Take caution with aspirin, though, as it may promote gastro-intestinal bleeding, and always speak with your doctor before starting a new regimen.

4. Eat omega-9 fatty acids: Almost everybody has heard about the heart-healthy and other myriad benefits derived from eating essential omega-3 fatty acids. Lesser known are the omega-9’s. Though they are not essential because our bodies make them naturally, eating foods, specifically monounsaturated oils like olive oil may extend your life. A study in Neurology suggests that high olive oil consumption plays a protective role by reducing the risk of stroke in older subjects. “Inflammation is the root cause of every degenerative disease and omega-9 oils are extremely anti-inflammatory. They do a great job penetrating the cells and getting cells and neurotransmitters to communicate with the brain faster,” says Bowden.

5. Eat dark chocolate: According to a study of more than 2,000 people published in the British Medical Journal, the blood-pressure lowering effects of dark chocolate consumption are beneficial in the prevention of cardiovascular problems in a population with metabolic syndrome. Another study in Nutrition concluded that flavonoid-rich cocoa consumption significantly improves blood pressure, insulin resistance and lipid profiles. Flavonoids are the antioxidants found in chocolate.

6. Check your hormone levels: Dr. Gary London, who practices the relatively new Western medicine concept of anti-aging in Hollywood, Calif., suggests that those over 40 who want to live out the second half of their lives with vigor should consider getting their hormone levels tested. “If your energy levels and sex-drive are low, if your muscle tone is deteriorating, bio-identical hormones may help,” says London. “Hormones are chemical messengers that are critical for making healthy cells. Our peak hormone level occurs at ages 25-30; afterwards, our hormone levels drop,” adds London.

7. Don’t have low cholesterol: A study published in the Journal of Korean Medical Science concludes that low cholesterol is associated with mortality from cardiovascular diseases. UCLA researchers concluded in a study published in 2009 in the American Heart Journal, that more than 75 percent of 136,905 heart attack patients had healthy cholesterol levels, suggesting that cholesterol levels do not have a direct correlation with developing heart disease; don’t worry yourself sick about cholesterol.”

These 7 proven facts to healthy life are agreeable. Surprisingly a direct approach on how to prevent your skin’s health and beauty is totally missing.  People should learn how to take care of their general health and skin is a big part of it. This statement is not meant to alter the article’s main concern, in fact skin is a part of every single TIP mentioned in it but is merely mentioned. Skin is often believed to be the window to our physical health. Sometimes, if something serious is happening to our body our skin is more than generous to represent it. In fact, physicians would use skin symptoms like discoloration and allergies to determine certain illnesses and therefore clear skin is a must to avoid confusion. This and the urge to look good at all times is everyone’s prerogative and most if not all would love to indulge themselves into it.

Natural topical skin solutions are always available in the market in forms of creams, gels and serums. And one good example of these solutions is niacinamide serum which has 10% niacinamide that helps prevent all types of skin ageing symptoms. Since we are talking about all natural products and with today’s trending need to a M-U-S-T healthy living this one should go with the list as well.
Niacinamide or nicotinamide is a water soluble vitamin that eliminates all signs of skin ageing known to men. It is a part of the Vitamin B group and is mostly used as an anti-inflammatory agent to fight acne.  It also protects the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Wearing it all day promotes skin hydration which results to lesser appearance of wrinkles.  Niacinamide based products like this serum also helps in shedding dead skin cells which results to a healthier, whiter, spot free skin.

Overall the advocacy to longer life not only entails living healthy but also looking healthy by eating good food, staying active and releasing stress regularly. 🙂
