The phrase “aging backwards” may bring up thoughts of science fiction but science fiction is now science fact. Research shows that there are tools, habits, and supplements you can implement that will not only stop aging in its tracks but also reverse your biological age. But where do you start?
First, we need to set the right foundation to stop the aging clock in its track. That means we need to work on the basics such as consistent exercise, healthy nutrition, a good night’s sleep, and keeping daily stress low. You have probably struggled with at least one of these areas in the past, but each of these habits are crucial for building a strong foundation of health to stop aging.
You can start with small, simple steps in each category. Go for a twenty minute walk each day, that will increase cognitive function and even decrease the likelihood of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s. Next is nutrition. An easy change is switching to organic veggies, grass-fed meat, and wild caught fish. You feel better when your food is better. Two things for a better night’s sleep is making sure your room is dark and cold. 68 degrees is the best temperature for a great night’s sleep, even if you toss another blanket on. And finally, stress. You can lower daily stress with the gratitude exercise. The gratitude exercise is taking time without distractions, thinking of three things you are grateful for and WHY you are grateful for them. This exercise alters your brain chemistry to put you in a more relaxed state of mind.
Now that you have a strong foundation, let’s talk about aging backwards. Infrared light therapy is great for your skin, hair, and even eyes. It promotes healthy mitochondria which are the work horses of the body. Check to see if your local spa offers it.
Triggering proper cell death is key to aging backwards and staying young. One of the best ways to do this is intermittent fasting. Make sure to consult your doctor before making the change.
And finally, a great supplement for aging backwards is PQQ supplement. PQQ has been shown to promote learning and memory, protects your heart, and protects against inflammation.
Let’s set that healthy foundation. Then you can experiment with these anti-aging tools. You will not be disappointed!
