Anti-Aging

General

By the time most people reach the age of 50 or 60 they tend to accept the negative effects of aging as a fact of life that they have little or no control over. However, there are some factors that people DO have control over and one of those is their nutritional intake. There is a large body of evidence that suggests that there are positive effects we can have on aging that deal directly with the foods we eat. The good news is that good nutrition incorporated into our lifestyle can help improve energy level, heart function, blood pressure, bone density, and bowel function as well as help keep weight in a healthy range and help prevent certain diseases such as cancer. As we age it is important to concentrate on spending calories wisely, consuming enough protein and calcium, as well as maintaining your intake of vitamin D, iron, vitamin A, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and zinc. The Anti-Aging Templates ensure that you receive all of the proper nutrition necessary to help make aging a healthy time of your life
