Aging Gracefully

The media offers a barrage of anti-aging beauty products however anti-aging is much more than skin deep and requires more than applying skin products.  The graceful way we age involves the foods and herbs we eat, the quality of products we use, the habits we form and the care we give ourselves.
Food choices and mild exercises are the easiest way to slow aging.  A variety of healthy and colorful vegetables that contain, phytonutrients, vitamin C, minerals and immeasurable nutrients  is our base to youthfulness and good health.  Immeasurable nutrients are only found in whole foods and  phytonutrients.   A variety of phytonutrients provide different health and anti-aging benefits so, eating vegetables, should not be limited to the FDA’s 3 – 5 servings but increased to 10 – 15 servings daily.  Small portions of 13 vegetables a day can prevent heart disease, cancer, pre-mature aging and many other conditions that we battle today.
If you are wondering how to incorporate these foods in your diet, let’s look at an example:
Breakfast could be a variety of fruits (different types of berries, apples, seasonal fruits) or baked winter squashes with cinnamon or a high protein powder drink.
Lunch is a great time for salads (alfalfa sprouts, radish, avocado, onions, peppers, cucumbers, spinach or mixed greens  a few black beans or seeds are tasty additions. (8 vegetables)
Dinner might include a small piece of fish or organic chicken or red meat, with steamed (asparagus with garlic) add sliced tomatoes (3 vegetables).
Snacks will include: carrots, celery,  peppers and other colorful vegetables.  Also add in a few fruits and a handful of raw nuts or seeds.  (an additional 2-4 vegetables).
You can easily see how 10 to 15 vegetables would not be a problem, they should be eaten in small amounts, remember it is the variety that counts.

Do you know that dark circles under the eyes, puffiness, loss of skin tone and an increase in fine lines and wrinkles can be contributed to a diet of sugary and starchy foods.  Chemically processed foods literally  rob us of our beauty, health and youthfulness.  So, one of the best things we can do for our skin is stay away from sugary and refined foods.

Because of depleted soils and pollution we may need additional vitamins.  A good Omega-3 fish oil, Calcium Lactate with magnesium, collagen C and a whole-food, multi-vitamin and mineral should provide enough for a healthy body and mind.   Include powerful anti-aging teas or tinctures, such as bilberry, gotu kola and jasmine green tea.  Theses teas will further enhance longevity as they provide the cells and body systems with nutrients that slow aging.

** Bilberry is  a powerful circulatory antioxidant that slows down degeneration it also helps relieve joint inflammation and prevents the deterioration of joint collagen.
** Gotu Kola is  excellent for cell re-generation and has been used for centuries to slow down aging.
** Jasmine green tea is a strong antioxidant tea that can help protect your body against damage of free radicals (cancer).  Jasmine tea is also benefits the nervous system.

Once organs, cells and body systems are supported it is time to work on the skin.   Always check ingredients in the product, if it contains mineral oil, parabens. triclosan, fragrances or dioxane (just to name a few) it is best to search for a healthier product.
Mineral oil is also known as paraffin wax or petrolatum and a very common ingredient that is used as a synthetic moisturizer to lock in the moisture.  It is cheap and readily available but works to clog the skin.  It coats the skin like plastic and prevents it from breathing correctly and prevents the proper elimination of toxins.  These products can lead to rashes, irritations and allergies if used regularly.
Parabens are known as methyl, propyl, butyl and ethyl parabens, these are used as a preservative, again because they are cheap.  However, studies have shown that they can cause cancer and interfere with many of the body’s important functions especially thyroid and the hormonal balance.
Triclosan  is used in a weedkiller and is an anti bacterial agent. Because of it’s common use in skin creams, it is thought to be responsible for the strains of bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics.
Fragrance, is a word used to hide thousands of harmful chemicals that lead to allergic reactions, depression and even hyperactivity.  Fragrances are also used to hide rancid smells of chemical ingredients or additives.
Dioxane is a SYNTHETIC derivative of coconut and is used to make harsh ingredients milder! The state of California deems that this chemical causes cancer and can lead to respiratory conditions.

Many harmful and skin damaging substances are added to most anti-wrinkle creams but by becoming a knowledgeable label reader you can make better choices to preserve your treasured health and skin.
The best anti aging products are free from harmful chemicals and contain organic oils such as macadamia nut oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, hemp oil or olive oil, avocado oil as well as a number of anti-aging herbs.  This type of product is healing and is naturally enriched with vitamins.
