Anti Aging Nutrition

Going Beyond Healthy Eating with 3 Simple Steps

A youthful healthy body full of energy with beautiful skin requires anti aging nutrition.

Now, I’m not trying to talk you into some fancy diet plan. No calorie restrictions, no fancy food menu or some sort of special anti aging woodoo.

In fact, I don’t like to talk about a diet, because if you are on a diet you eventually will get off the diet. What is the point in doing a diet short term to look youthful for a brief moment and then return back to your old habits?

Many people have noticed that after a few weeks of healty dieting their skin and whole body are looking rejuvenated. But it shouldn’t stop there. To keep your body youthful you need to adopt an anti aging nutrition lifestyle.


What is Anti Aging Nutrition?

 Anti Aging NutritionThe secret of anti aging nutrition is the supply of all nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that our body needs in order to stay healthy, for rejuvenation, self-repair and protection of the cells.

Anti aging nutrition goes beyond normal healthy eating. It is advanced nutrition that helps the body to perform at it’s best. Only then the body can rejuvenate itself to be radiant and full of youthful energy.

The body is a complex machine, yet it is all about the cell.

Live starts with one cell. That one cells duplicates thousands of times until it forms a human body. Once maturity is reached, the body starts to age.

Why? Because aging is a normal physiological process that every living being goes through. It’s called life!

However, in our modern world our bodies age prematurely due to environmental factors and poor lifestyle choices. These include nutrition, pollution, toxins and chemicals, stress and so on. Degenerative diseases are most likely the result of modern lifestyle choices. Along with nutrition, detoxification methods are one way they can be dealt with.

While a hundred years ago people would have died of diseases like diphtheria, degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease and other chronic diseases are killing more than 24 million people world-wide prematurely. Sadly this trend is rising.

We are living longer, thanks to modern medicine, but also dying longer. But old should not equal sick.

Are people possessed about anti-aging because we think that aging means being sick, getting cancer and dying too early?

We are not able to stop the aging process, but with anti aging nutrition and an active healthy lifestyle we are able to slow down the aging process.


What To Eat And Not To Eat

You don’t have to follow any specific diet plan or count calories. There is no restriction to carbohydrates or the amount you eat.

It is really very simple. GO BACK TO BASICS

You can eat everything nature offers you. Anything that can be hunted, fished, picked or gathered. The key is to eat as little processed foods as possible. Choose organic products that are free of nasty chemicals whenever possible.

If you go shopping, stay at the outside isles. If you are wondering how to read labels? You are looking at the wrong foods. Anything that comes in box with a label is most likely processed.

Any natural unprocessed foods would not spike your blood sugar. Health professionals recommend to stick to low glycaemic eating. Purely because it has been proven that all the white stuff, like sugar and wheat are speeding up the aging process. Foods that interfere with the blood sugar levels will affect your weight, hormone levels and ultimately your health. See Insulin Resistance. If you can’t live without sugar try the low glycemic natural sweetener Yacon Syrup.

Are We’re Getting Enough Nutrients?

You would think that by sticking to only natural unprocessed foods you would get all the nutrients your body needs. Sadly this is not true. In order to receive advanced nutrition, we have to supplement our diet.

The vitamin and mineral content in most fruits and vegetables has dropped over the past 50 years significantly. This is due to depleted soils, unripe picking, chemical processing and storing. It may take month from the time the fruit or vegetable is picked until we actually consume it. Most of the nutrition is lost on the way. Then we may cook it or boil it to loose further nutrition content.

But it is not only the little nutritonal value of our foods, it is also the fact that most of us do not eat the recommended daily intakes of fruit and vegetables. A National Health Survey in 2004 showed that only 16% of female and 11% of male Australians consumed five or more servings of fruit and vegetables, while 40% of female and 54% of male Australians did not usually consume the recommended two or more servings of fruit everyday.[1]

Consider that you must eat 15 kg of Spinach to receive an optimal amount of 400 IU (international Units) of Vitamin E, one of the most powerful oxidation defence agents for conquering free radicals.

Bottomline: We don’t get enough nutrients than what we need. The answer is advanced nutrition.


Advanced Nutrition

For the body to receive all the nutrients in the right forms and quantities for it to be utilised we need to supply it with advanced nutrition.

Medical authorities advice to take nutritional supplements, as our body does not get enough to maintain health and prevent degenerative diseases even with the healthiest diet.

Dr Ray Strand, author of What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You, Death by Prescription, Healthy for Life, and Living by Design, says,

“When all of the necessary nutrients are provided to the cell in a complete and balanced nutritional supplement, the combined effect is phenomenal”[2]

Now that we know that we should take an nutritional supplement as part of our anti aging nutrition diet, the question arises what kind of supplements do we actually need?

There are thousands of products on the market that are specialising in age prevention. You could have a cupboard full of products from Vitamin C to E, Zinc and Magnesium.

It would be hard to manage the right dosage and right amounts of all essential nutrients if you would have to take them all individually. Not to mention the right combinations as you would need a degree in biochemistry.

An easy way is to take a complete nutritional supplement. What is complete? It is a multi-vitamin and multi-mineral that includes antioxidants in the right amounts and form so it can be absorbed by the body.

A comprehensive, precisely balanced quality nutritional supplement that offers superior ingredients, 100% potency guarantee and adheres to pharmaceutical grade Good Manufacturing Practices.

Some people think that it is only necessary to take a nutritional supplement occasionally or when feeling sick. To stay in optimal health you must make sure that you supply your body with all the nutrients that it needs to protect and repair itself every day because our bodies excrete, metabolize and eliminate certain nutrients fairly quickly.


What Is Your Skin Eating

It is a medically recognised fact that our body absorbs significant amounts of what we put on our skin.

  • The average adult uses 9 personal care products daily exposing them to 126 chemicals every day!
  • 89% of 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products have NOT been evaluated for safety.
  • Over the last 30 years, only 9 of those 10,500 ingredients in personal care products have been banned or restricted.
  • One third of all personal care products contain one or more ingredients classified as possible human carcinogens.

Certified Organic food is the best choice for anti aging nutrition. Why would you accept any less for your skin?

It just makes sense to choose Organic Skin Care and Personal Care Products.


Daniela’s 3 Simple Steps To Anti Aging Nutrition

Anti aging nutrition, including a diet rich in fresh natural foods and a complete nutritional supplement is the basis to keep your body youthful.

Equally important are plenty of sleep, exercise and the stimulation of your mind. Beauty and Makeup plays also an important role as by looking younger, we are feeling younger.

However, without advanced nutrition our body cannot function properly. Your sleeping patterns, energy and mental alertness may be affected and you may suffer from mood swings, depression, aches and pains, lethargy and generally feeling unhealthy.

Anti aging nutrition is where anti aging starts. I say this as Beauty Specialist, as I know that anti aging requires a holistic approach and that all expensive creams and treatments are less effective if the nutrition is not complete.

As a basis to all anti aging treatments I recommend the following anti aging nutrition program:

Step 1 : Detox

For a start detox your body to remove accumulated toxins.

This will start off your anti-aging lifestyle to a good start. We often don’t realise how toxic we are and how the accumulation of toxins in our tissues make us feel unwell or sick. After the detox you will not only feel refreshed and full of energy you will see a noticable difference in your skin.

There are many different detox programms available.

The detox should include plenty of soluble and insoluble fibre as this is the fastest way to remove toxins out of the system. Also included should be lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, essential fatty acids and a balanced amount of good carbohydrates and protein.

The cleanse should not starve you as it is not intend to be a weightloss diet, instead to reset your body to its normal metabolism, remove toxins and give your body a break from the typical western diet.

Step 2 : Supplements

Start taking a complete nutritional supplement every day. This should include a Multi-Vitamin, Multi-Mineral, Antioxidant and Essential Fatty Acids.

Multi Vitamins and Minerals assure that your body is staying at its optimum health while antioxidants help to neutralize harmful toxins on an ongoing basis so they don’t accumulate in the tissues.

Omega 3, 6 and 9 Supplements help maintain normal, healthy heart function, brain cell membrane development, nerve and myelin function, and helps maintain good joint health. Not to mention the benefits for skin, hair and nails.

Take your supplements religiously every day, because being healthy and slowing down the aging process is a process that occurs over time. Just like aging and degenerative diseases occur over a long period of time, not over-night.

Step 3: Eat Unprocessed Foods

Food that is natural, unprocessed and from organic source is the best you can give your body and stop the clock.

I do not believe in calorie restriction diet or any other restrictive diet plans. Our bodies need food, just the right one. So enjoy glorious beautiful food that will make you look and feel beautiful.

This should not be a diet, but a lifestyle. Together with your supplements you will assure that your body will age at the slowest possible rate.
