Today we are living in a highly dynamic time; every moment something new happens and in order to cope up with the speed of each passing moment we are continuously increasing our own work speeds. We are running our minds at rate so high so that we can produce highly efficient results in every field. The competition around us, the race of achieving the highest, the dream of accomplishing something great is all what we are running for. In this rapid train of passing time, we forget that we are missing life; the art of living. We are so busy in completing our deadlines and grabbing every new work opportunity at hand that we stop taking care of our health. Health has taken the last position in our priority list. The life that we have been blessed with, we don’t take care of it. We don’t understand that there is no meaning of our earnings if we cannot stay healthy and fit. We must learn to enjoy the benefits of our greatest achievements. But how do we do so - By enjoying a healthy life. A healthy life does not only mean living a life free of diseases but also one where in we are mentally, physically and emotionally fit. Stress of work and relationships make us mentally and physically unfit. We all should take out time from our busy schedules, just for ourselves; to focus on our health; to make ourselves beautiful from both inside and outside; cleanse our body of toxins both physical and chemical. A healthy mind and body is the first step towards achieving happiness and contentment. We can start with little steps to make our lives better. Start with drinking plenty of water, spending sometime in the sun light outside; do a little bit of stretching and breathing daily. It is a cliché to say that Health is Wealth but nonetheless it is true. We invest our money in all sorts of luxuries – grand mansions and buildings, newest fashion and the most popular brands, latest of gadgets and technology, most comforting furniture and the most beautiful art pieces and paintings but we hesitate to invest money in our health. We spend our money and wealth to buy the most expensive items or save it to have the brightest future. We fail to comprehend that we only have control over our present and making our present better is the only way to enjoy all our savings. We do not give a second thought when buying a new shirt when our wardrobe is already full of the many that we do not even have days to wear on; neither do we wait for a minute before spending a large part of our earnings just to satisfy our taste buds; then why do we think twice before buying a nutrition supplement for our health? Dietary supplements or nutrition supplements are mistaken to be one and the same thing but they are not. According to FDA, “A dietary supplement is a product intended for ingestion that contains a ‘dietary ingredient’ intended to add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet. A ‘dietary ingredient’ may be one, or any combination, of the following substances: a vitamin, a mineral, an herb or other botanical substances, an amino acid, a dietary substance for use by people to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake, a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, or extract. Some dietary supplements can help ensure that you get an adequate dietary intake of essential nutrients; others may help you reduce your risk of disease.” Thus, dietary supplements are foodstuffs but with a higher content of vitamins, minerals or pharmacologically active substances. Artlife Company brings to you a wide range of Dietary and Health supplements as well as cosmetics that will ensure a healthy lifestyle, reduce your risk of various diseases and a bring a beauty both internal and external. These products will help you to stay healthy both mentally and physically. So start taking one today to feel the difference and enjoy a better present and a much healthier future.
7 Worst Foods that causing Aging & 7 Most Powerful Anti-Aging Tips
Look older than you should, lack the energy you ought to have, bring on all sorts of serious diseases like cancer and heart attack, lose your mental clarity and memory, and die younger than you should?
I’m sure your answer is giant NO WAY!
In which case the most important goal you could have in your life when it comes to looking and feeling as young as you should, avoiding (and healing) disease and early death, and eliminating pain while you are at it is …
Take the essential steps below to
reduce your body’s inflammation starting today!
Follow the 7 Powerful Anti-Aging Tips after the 7 Foods below and you CAN Reverse Premature Aging
Now I am not talking about the normal and natural inflammation that is a healthy body’s reaction to irritation, infection, or injury.
I am talking about chronic inflammation, which unfortunately most adults over age 35 have today, and which is when pro-inflammatory substances continue to be released into your body over time, attacking your healthy cells, blood vessels and tissues instead of protecting them.
And unhealthy cells, vessels, and tissues EQUALS premature aging — skin that increasingly looks older than it should, bones that get weaker than they should, depleted energy, and a brain that gets increasingly cloudy too.
When you understand chronic inflammation’s basic processes, in fact, it is no surprise that scientific research (especially over the last decade or so) has shown that it is THE root cause of most of today’s chronic diseases, including cancer, heart attack, diabetes, fibromyalgia, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and more.
And of course, chronic inflammation also means pain.
The VERY Good News!
But here is the wonderful thing about addressing your inflammation: it is never too late. By striving to avoid these foods below, and by taking the positive steps that follow, you really CAN reverse premature aging (and heal and prevent disease and eliminate your pain in the process)!
Below are 7 worst-offender foods that cause premature aging. This means these foods are linked to chronic inflammation — amongst a host of other serious problems these foods can cause!
Further below are 7 CRUCIAL steps to take to banish chronic pain, reverse premature aging, and both heal the underlying causes of and prevent serious disease.
Foods That Cause Aging #1: Sugar
Sugar provokes chronic inflammation, amongst many other ill effects. It’s not about banishing sugar from your diet entirely, as healthy foods like fruits contain it naturally. Instead the big goal is to eliminate it from all sources you possibly can, so you are only getting it from the natural whole foods like fruit.
Try to avoid table sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, maple syrup, sorghum syrup, rice syrup, molasses, corn sweetener, liquid cane sugar, dextrose, fructose, glucose, and any other word that ends in an “ose”, barley malt, and concentrated fruit juice, for example. Watch labels carefully for these and other sugar sources.
Foods That Cause Aging #2: Hydrogenated Fats / Trans-Fats
Think of these as artificial fat, and think of them as extremely bad for you! In addition to promoting inflammation, trans-fats promote insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and obesity.
They are prevalent in deep-fried foods, commercial baked goods, and fast foods. Watch food labels carefully – and keep in mind in the U.S.A. that foods containing less than .5g of trans fat can be called trans fat free. Avoid margarine, vegetable shortening, and partially hydrogenated oil … watch labels for these, because even if it doesn’t list any trans fat, if it contains these, it likely has some!
Foods That Cause Aging #3: Processed Foods
Processed foods include refined grains, processed meat, and pasteurized dairy.
Refined grains basically have their nutritional value stripped right out of them to make it easier for the food factories to produce and store on grocery store shelves.
The effect of what is left after the nutrition is stripped out of them is very similar to the effect of sugar on your body. Furthermore, processed grain products typically have all sorts of added ingredients that make their health-obliterating effects even worse, such as excess salt, sugar, and artificial ingredients. White rice, white flour, white bread, noodles, pasta, biscuits, and baked goods are a few examples of processed grain foods.
Scientific research shows that processed meat, meanwhile, is a very strong contributor to aging and disease, especially cancer of the colon and rectum. Processed meats include those that have been smoked, salted, cured, or preserved with chemicals, such as lunchmeat with nitrates.
Finally, common milk and dairy products found on your grocer’s shelves are pasteurized, which means it is heated at a temperature just below boiling to kill off bacteria. Pasteurization became widespread early in the 20th century, when it was necessary due to the unsanitary conditions on many dairy farms back then.
Unfortunately, pasteurization also kills off the digestive enzymes in the dairy (which is why so many people today are lactose intolerant)! It also makes around 50% of the calcium in the dairy unusable by your body! What’s left is a lot of milk sugar (lactose) that converts into sugar your body uses very rapidly. Add that to the fact that dairy cows today are force-fed unnatural diets along with antibiotics and growth hormones, and you can see why common milk does NOT do a body good.
Foods That Cause Aging #4: Cooking Oils High in Omega-6
Most peoples’ diets are dangerously high in omega-6, and dangerously low in omega-3, contributing greatly to premature aging and disease. And polyunsaturated vegetable oils like sunflower, corn, safflower, cottonseed, and grape seed oils have very high omega-6 and very low omega-3.
Foods That Cause Aging #5: NON-Naturally Raised Meat
Most beef, pork, and poultry you’ll find at grocery stores and restaurants come from feedlots versus being raised naturally (and humanely.) What this means is that the animals are force-fed diets such as corn and soy that are not their natural foods, in order to rapidly and excessively fatten them up. This results in sick animals, so they’re injected with antibiotics, too. To speed the fatten-them-up-and-sell-them process even more, they are injected with hormones.
What that means is a range of horrible effects on you if you eat this meat, such as high levels of omega-6 fatty acids … and antibiotics and hormones.
To avoid premature aging and disease, seek out only free-range and organic meats from animals fed entirely on their natural diets such as grasses.
Foods That Cause Aging #6: Alcohol
If you are in generally healthy condition, a glass of red wine or beer daily have both been shown to provide health benefits.
But things turn sour beyond those moderate levels with wine, beer, and other alcoholic beverages, as routine high consumption provokes inflammation, especially of the liver and esophagus.
Foods That Cause Aging #7: Artificial Ingredients
Aspartame. Saccharin. BHA and BHT. Mono-sodium glutamate. Potassium bromate. Sodium nitrate and nitrate. These are some of the worst artificial ingredient offenders. Artificial sweeteners, and other artificial ingredients that preserve, thicken, conceal, or do who-knows-what to food, are ARTIFICIAL … meaning they are not MEANT to go into your body! Many have been linked to all sorts of serious disease including cancer. If you want to look younger, feel younger, heal and prevent disease, and live longer, seek whole and natural foods on food labels and avoid these deadly agents.
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #1:
Eat More Natural Foods Rich in Phytonutrients and Antioxidants
Phytonutrients are certain organic components from plants that are essential to avoid premature aging and avoid disease. Antioxidants, meanwhile, are molecules found in certain foods that slow or prevent the oxidation of molecules – meaning they reverse and prevent the formation of free radicals in your body, thereby reversing and preventing early aging and disease!
One exceptional source of phytonutrients and antioxidants (and also a lower-sugar fruit source) are berries, such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cherries.
Garlic, kale, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, legumes like kidney beans, chili peppers, onions, spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, and sweet potatoes are some other super-healthy foods.
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #2:
Drink More Clean Water
Study after study confirms it – most people are not drinking nearly enough clean, pure water. It is the essence of life, of course, so its benefits are myriad. But they include flushing the toxins out of your body, helping you feel full so you don’t overeat, and keeping your skin young and healthy.
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #3:
Be Sure You are Getting Enough CLEAN CoQ10, Omega-3 and Vitamin E!
Vitamin E is essential for preventing early aging, both in terms of your physical appearance and as a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells from free radical damage that leads to cancer, heart attack, and other serious diseases. BE CAREFUL with vitamin E supplements, though, as there are multiple forms of Vitamin E and many contain the synthetic form that can be dangerous.
As already mentioned above, meanwhile, most adults are DANGEROUSLY deficient in omega-3 with DHA and EPA fatty acids that are so essential to avoid and help reverse premature aging, low energy, and serious disease. Again, though, please BEWARE of most omega-3 supplements, as many contain low-grade omega-3 and other ingredients that can actually be harmful.
And finally, be sure you are getting enough CoQ10 in your diet! Again there is a widespread deficiency of this essential compound that acts as the “power switch” for all 100 trillion cells in your body.
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #4:
Eat Naturally-Raised, Whole, Organic Proteins, Grains, Fruits, and Veggies
Well, as you can tell from the Foods that Cause Aging above, it is very wise to avoid anything processed, artificial, chemically saturated or altered, or otherwise manipulated by humans. (ALWAYS keep in mind they don’t do this with your health in mind – they do it for profit.)
Instead, seek out meat from animals allowed to range freely, allowed to eat their natural diet that hasn’t been sprayed with pesticides and herbicides, and not injected with steroids, antibiotics, or hormones. For protein, also seek out organic legumes.
Whatever protein sources you choose, make sure it is clean and that you get plenty of it in your diet – protein is increasingly essential as you get older; starting around the age of 40, muscle mass begins to decline by up to 1 percent yearly, and protein is critical to slow that process!
Also seek out foods made from whole organic grains – be careful of products stating “Made from Whole Grains!” because often that means whole grains are one of the ingredients, along with processed grains and all sorts of other harmful ingredients. (Watch those labels!)
And seek out fresh, organic, and ideally locally grown vegetables and fruits, too.
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #5:
Sleep Properly, Sleep Well!
Research just keeps on proving that getting proper sleep is fundamental to avoiding premature aging, to healing and preventing disease, and to overcoming pain. Amongst its many other functions, good sleep is key to helping greatly reduce the impact of emotional stress on your health and wellbeing.
If you do not consistently get a good night’s sleep, please do not miss …
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #6:
No Excuses – Exercise!
You have heard about the extreme importance of exercise before … countless times, probably. You KNOW it is critical to avoid premature aging, to increase your energy, and to heal and prevent disease already. It is also one of the most effective ways to reduce the emotional stress that contributes to premature aging and disease!
Powerful Anti-Aging Tips #7:
Do Not Wait: Fight Your Chronic Inflammation Starting Now – Naturally
Far too many people ignore the pain they are feeling in their body, some because they think they are helpless or it is “normal,” others because they think they can “tough it out.”
Ignoring the pain now means ignoring your chronic inflammation now, and that is about the most dangerous mistake you can possibly make. As you know by now, chronic inflammation is the underlying cause of premature aging – from how your skin looks to how much daily energy you have to how focused your brain is.
And as you know by now, chronic inflammation is the underlying cause of most serious diseases, including cancer and heart attack.
Ignoring it or “toughing it out” is like playing Russian roulette with your life.
By taking the steps above, you can reverse chronic inflammation and other health-obliterating offenders ongoing and long-term.
1975th at the special meeting of the medical - biological AMNSSSR department has decided to allocate a special group of compounds able to exert a physiological effect expressed in small quantities. The scientists were united in one group and named it "biologically active substance" or "micronutrients" and annexed them, alkaloids, hormones, and hormonal compounds, vitamins, microelements, biogenic amines, neurotransmisere, substances which possess pharmacological properties.
Thus, on the border of Pharmacology and dijetologije, appeared a new direction in medicine - mikronutrijentologija, whose main task is the application of micronutrients with different composition and structure of the prevention and strengthening health of every man.
In 1999-the age Tuteljan VA colleagues proposed a different name for the new section of medicine: farmakonutriciologija. It is proposed also to give them the name of micronutrients, biological active food additives (BAD). This terminology has become generally accepted at the present time. BAD-Using these along with the food, the food itself becomes a drag. With this method (use of biologically active supplements to food), food becomes functional. Functional foods are foods that contain components or additives (BAD's) that show the positive effect on one or more functions of the organism and thus improves the general condition and health, or significant impact on reducing the risk of infection.
Biologically active food additives (BAD's) are natural or pharmacological analogue of natural complexes, which are necessary to ensure the normal functioning of the human organism and that modern man does not receive food.
Another definition of BAD's: that the concentrates of the natural or identical to natural biologically active substances, including essential nutrients, which are recommended for individual use, or included in the composition of nutrient products. vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and Phytochemicals are used with food or on their own to enrich the nutritional value of food and the body has provided with the necessary micronutrients to protect against illness or for recovery and healing. This is especially great advantage for people who are due to social, cultural or medical reasons, eliminated certain foods from your diet.
Biologically active food supplements by their nature may be natural products, animal, mineral or microbial origin, have a combined composition. Their use of modern man into the body all the necessary elements of the food can not get the same zatrovanosti, inadequate food processing where they lose important ingredients. Using BAD's modern man complement your meal vitamins, minerals, micronutrients, fiber and other herbal ingredient.
Biologically active food supplements are a special group of medicinal products that are on the frontier between food and medicine.
