Stay Young and Youthful forever….with Science

Look for products with cell regulators, such as retinols, peptides and growth factors (GF), which can influence collagen production.

How many of you have seen the movie The Age of Adeline. In this movie the actress Blake Lively faces a car accident at the age of 29 and she never ages thereafter…. Stay Young and Youthful forever

This is complete fiction.  Nobody can stay young forever, but we can definitely slow it down with science backed ways. 

What is Skin ?

Skin is the body’s largest organ. A square inch of skin has millions of cells and many nerve endings for sensing temperature, pain, pressure, and touch. Skin is very sensitive and can get damaged if it is not cared for. We need to protect it from the sun, dirt and from irritants.

“The body sheds 30,000–40,000 dead skin cells off its surface every minute. This amounts to nine pounds of cells every year. ”

Skin and Ageing

As we grow older our skin also undergoes changes. Skin ages both from the inside and from the outside. Within our skin, collagen production slows and elastin becomes less flexible. New skin cells are produced less quickly, and dead skin cells are not shed as often.

Signs of Ageing:

  • Wrinkles
  • Thinner and more transparent skin
  • Hollows in the cheeks and eye sockets and looser flesh on the neck and hands
  • More prominent veins and bones
  • Dry skin
  • Slow healing when injured

  1. Gut Health : Secret to glowing skin

54 percent of acne patients have marked alterations to the intestinal microflora. Acne, facial redness, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, and rosacea could happen because of poor gut health. Having processed diet, stress and other lifestyle factors could result in a damaged or “leaky” gut lining (leaky gut is increased intestinal permeability or intestinal hyperpermeability), which leads to low-grade inflammation, oxidative stress and insulin resistance – all factors which have been linked to poor skin health. So take good care of your gut.

Probiotic, Prebiotic and Synbiotics. Do we know what exactly are they?

Try out Probiotic, Prebiotic  and Synbiotics for good Gut Health

My previous post was all about ‘Good Bacteria‘ and the role they play in maintaining a healthy life. Some researchers believe that up to 90 percent of all diseases can be traced in some way back to the gut and health of the microbiome. Poor gut health can contribute to leaky gut syndrome and autoimmune diseases and disorders like arthritis, dementia, heart disease, and cancer.
So it’s understood that good health begins in the gut while poor gut function, due to an imbalance of gut bacteria, can lay us open to digestive disorders and a host of other health problems.

So how can we make our Gut to stay healthy ?

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates

Answer is Try out Probiotic, Prebiotic  and Synbiotics

The health benefits imparted by probiotics and prebiotics as well as synbiotics have been the subject of extensive research in the past few decades. These food supplements termed as functional foods have been demonstrated to alter, modify and reinstate the pre-existing intestinal flora. Functional foods also provide the body with required amount of vitamins, fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Probiotics:

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates

The term Probiotics is derived from a Greek word meaning “for life”. Probiotics have been defined as live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. The concept of probiotics evolved at the turn of the 20th century from a hypothesis first proposed by Nobel Prize winning Russian scientist Elie Metchnikoff.

Benefits of Probiotics:

  • Provide a natural defense or immune system for body
  • Prevent growth of harmful bacteria
  • Strengthen immune system towards allergies and other autoimmune diseases
  • Help body to produce vitamins

  • Increase defecation and reduce constipation
