The creams claiming that vitamin E and antioxidants have the youth-reviving effect make everyone be positive about the future of anti-aging solutions. Thousands of experiments around pills and creams with different ingredients are being performed yearly. Few of the magic food supplements thus resulting are actually approved by the FDA for human tests. Most of them reach only the stage of being tested on laboratory animals.
One of the promising pills has been created by the molecular biologist David Sinclair who even looks to extending the life span of a human besides combatting cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and heart disease. The biologist and his close relatives are already taking pills with the basic ingredient being resveratrol. But the solution does not do magic, so exercise and healthy eating will still be necessary anyway. Sinclair is also optimistic about FDA approving the anti-aging remedy developed by him in the near future.
Another approach tested only on laboratory mice was based on ‘caloric restriction’. Its name describes the practice: the mice were being fed less than needed. That increased the level of sirtuins, molecules involved in the metabolism process. The researchers claimed that it did work as expected, but the FDA has refused to include the technique in the list of possible options.
Despite the complicated road to getting their researches approved, biologists keep studying the different medications and say that finding the solution to a longer and healthier life is only a matter of time.
When thinking about preserving youth, a lot of people think first of all of preserving a tight and healthy-looking skin. While waiting for the magic food supplements that would keep the look youthful, one can follow some rules that keep the skin healthy:
- Avoid smoking and polluted environments. The toxins slowly damage the connective tissue and the process is not reversible.
- Stop yielding to the temptation of tanning to the darkest shade you can possibly achieve. Statistics show that women who had avoided excessive sun look noticeably younger than their tanned peers after the age of 50.
- Figuring out which products are best to use and avoid mixing brands, as you increase the possibility of mixing incompatible chemicals.
- Specialists claim that cutting out sugar from your diet can make your face look years younger. It seems that everyone’s favorite ingredient speeds up the loss of collagen and elastin.
- You can test the Face Lift Diet developed by dermatologist Dr Nicholas Perricone. It promises an anti-aging effect and looks tasty when you read it too 🙂
