How Rebecca Lives An Amazing Life Well Into Her 80's

Getting old is a frightening prospect. Most of us worry we'll no longer be able to enjoy life and instead face one frustration after another. But it doesn't have to be that way. As many spunky and vital seniors testify, with the right attitude and a strategic approach to healthy living, your older years can be just as rich.Take Rebecca R. of San Antonio, Texas, for example..."I tell you, I'm amazing!" says Rebecca, chuckling to herself.And truly, there's no disputing this. As Rebecca describes - with a healthy dose of wonder in her voice - she defies all the gloomy predictions about getting older. Well into her 80's, she has a busy and active schedule. She plays bridge, walks every day, is active in her church and regularly gets involved in the activities organized at her retirement community.What's her secret?Rebecca attributes her good health to taking chlorella supplements and her belief in God."I thank that chlorella for my good health!" exclaims Rebecca. Since 2009, she's taken 15 chlorella tablets without fail every day. "I've just had my blood work done and my cholesterol is normal. My blood pressure is normal. My triglycerides are normal. Once in a while I may have a back ache. But at my age, who doesn't."As Rebecca has discovered, chlorella is great for all around health.· A pilot study in Japan revealed chlorella seems to help your body maintain normal cholesterol levels.[1]· When it comes to keeping your joints moving smoothly, a small clinical study has shown chlorella can help with minor pain and inflammation. [2]· And when it comes to immune health, numerous studies have demonstrated chlorella helps keep your internal defenses strong.[3]"I don't know the last time I've been sick. I live in Texas so I get some allergies occasionally. But the only operation I've had was a broken ankle."As she points out, most of her neighbors need the assistance of a cane, walker or wheelchair. Rebecca doesn't need any help. Instead she often helps push people's chairs into the dining room. And she walks for exercise every day.

In addition to lots of walking, Rebecca drives herself everywhere. And during the day, she doesn't need glasses to see where she's going. She only uses them to read.When people ask her how she manages to stay so vital, she shares with them her information about chlorella algae. "But I can't make them do it if they don't want to take it. It's unfortunate... "Rebecca knows what it's like to face off with health challenges. Though she never smoked, she developed COPD from second-hand smoke. And while in college she came down with Meniere's disease. With the loss of hearing this disease caused, she had to drop out of school for a year. But she didn't let that stop her. She went on to serve as an Air Force nurse. Well before Rebecca discovered chlorella and added it to her diet, her indomitable spirit helped her take on these challenges and live a full life.Rebecca's energy and enthusiasm for life continues to fuel her in her senior years and spills out as she talks. "They can't believe I'm this active at my age. When I look around me at other people slumped over or crippled at my age, I think I'm pretty amazing, too."As Rebecca demonstrates, your later years can be amazing. It's up to you. Simply by mixing a positive attitude with good nutrition and a fair amount of activity, you can cook up some golden years filled with joy.Sources:[1] Effect of long-term administration of chlorella tablets on hyperlipidemia, Jrnl.

Anti Aging Skin Care Secrets Revealed - Use Anti Aging Techniques To Look Younger In 30min!

It may sound impossible that there are simple anti aging skin care secrets available today that are able to make you look 5yrs younger in less than 30min, but amazingly it's actually true.When it comes to anti aging secrets and skin care there are 2 main points of discussion that need to be taken in to account: stem cell technology and lifting masques.Firstly, let's talk about the role your skin plays in the body and why these anti aging skin care secrets are important. lifting masques and just precisely what they are.Your SkinYour skin plays an important role in the body-it defends against viruses and bacteria; helps balance fluid and electrolyte levels; and contains nerve receptors that allow you to feel sensations such as cold or heat. Your skin is the first line of defence for your body and it's also the first thing that another person sees of you, so it's a very good idea to take care of your skin and the appearance of your skin.The way to do this is by adding a Lifting Masque to your routine.Lifting MasquesNow let's talk about precisely what these are. A Lifting Masque is applied to the face, left on for 15-20min and "peeled' off once the application is complete.A good quality Lifting Masque will combine invigorating antioxidants with natural, nutritional sugars to give you a skin-firming masque that beautifies and hydrates - even after it has been removed. The botanicals in the Masque bind to the skin's surface and produce an instant lift while distributing moisture fundamental to skin repair - in less than 30min.

The best quality ones will work by constructing a tridimensional matrix that continues to replenish after the masque has been peeled away, providing continuous nourishment. Using one regularly trains the skin to keep its lift while structurally contouring your face and sculpting it back to youthful perfection.When you combine a Lifting Masque with powerful anti aging stem cell technology, you truly have found the holy grail of anti aging skin care secrets.Stem Cell TechnologyStem cell technology has moved to the forefront when it comes to cosmetics and anti aging. More specifically than that, you want to look for products that are derived from Human Stem Cells. These products don't actually contain any stem cells in them, they contain the chemical compound that is found naturally in the human body that promotes stem cell repair and growth.The reason you want to look for cosmetic products derived from Human Stem Cells as opposed to those products that are derived from plant stem cells is that the active ingredients are generally found naturally in our own bodies, so there is no chance of rejection or reactions from them. With plant based products, this is not so true.Whichever way you look at it, a good Lifting masque is a crucial component to any serious anti aging skin care regimen.Rescue your skin from showing the damaging effects of aging.Yours in Freedom

Anti Aging Skin Care For Men - Should Men Care About Anti Aging As Much As Women?

Long gone are the days of the rough and tough looking man, with tough weathered skin and grissly stubble being the status quo. A transition in the mindset of society has led to the breed of a new man..the modern man..the metrosexual man.The metrosexual man takes care in his appearance and most likely has his own range of skin care products as well as his own anti aging routine. To metrosexual men it has an important role to play in their daily routines and they are more than comfortable promoting the fact that they "indulge" in personal care.This modern man is well aware that in today's world of the media-driven search for perfection, he too can have the anti aging benefits of skin care products long enjoyed by women. Breakthroughs in anti aging technology, such as the cultivation of compounds derived from adult human stem cells, is bridging the gap between the want to look younger and the costs to do so.There are products in the market that offer fantastic results from their cosmetic ranges, low price points and as a result for today's men skin care is not just "something that women use". Men are buying in to the "wanting to look 5yrs youger" genre... buying in massively!Whilst it is estimated that currently 70% of the $200b industry of cosmetics products sold worldwide are being sold to women, this has dropped from an estimated 90% 10yrs ago. What that means is that the percentage of men using cosmetics products for their anti aging benefits has tripled over the last decade. With this percentage rise expected to continue for many years to come, cosmetics companies are quickly targeting the growing market of metrosexual men looking for the next big thing in anti aging cosmetics.

Whilst also targeting men directly, cosmetics formulators are also coming up with products that are deemed unisex; meaning that they can be enjoyed by either men or women and have great results for both. This actually allows couples to follow the same anti aging routines as each other and work together to their common goals of looking younger and healthier.It is a known fact that people will actually spend 3 times more on how they look rather than on how they feel, and with today's new breed of free thinking, trend setting metrosexuals, the lines between what is deemed to be a female-dominated industry (such as cosmetic products and anti aging) are quickly becoming blurred.Today's men are looking younger, feeling better and becoming healthier and the health wellness and youthful aging industry can take much of the credit for this mindset shift from girls products vs boys products simply to adult skin care products.I for 1 am happy for this shift in mindset as it allows me to enjoy all the benefits of today's anti aging cosmetics products and keeps me looking fresh and healthy, especially as my skin endures a lot from the harsh Australian sun.Yours in Freedom

Want to Be Fit and 50? Just Stretch and Clench!

I am often asked how I stay so fit and slim at 50. The answer of course is a mixture of genetics, lifestyle, diet and exercise. I may be lucky to a degree but if you look at most people that fit in that bracket, the reality is that they work at it.There is one element above all other however that has made a difference. I stretch and clench! I have done it from my teens, it now comes automatically and I don't give it a thought.So what is stretch and clench?It started after I left school, when the netball and cross country stopped and I noticed a big drop in my fitness level. Although naturally slim I noticed that my legs ached when I went upstairs and walked uphill. There was no denying I was losing fitness and tone in my legs, stomach and bottom. At the time 'callanetics' was all the rage, an exercise routine that involved small multiple repetitions of a muscle group. The craze was based on the premise that lots of small muscle contractions equalled one big one. The results seemed impressive even if it was incredibly tedious. Never the less I got into the habit of holding my stomach muscles in as I sat down in a boring job.The breakthrough came however when I discovered that I could stretch my leg muscles and clench my bum as I walked. Don't we all do that I hear you cry? The reality is 'no, we don't'. Try this out and feel the difference.Give it a trySet off walking normally, focus on how your legs, bums and stomach feel. Now hold your stomach in and stride out. Deliberately lengthen your stride so that you feel a big stretch along the front of each thigh. As each leg comes back clench your bottom hard, really squeeze. Once you have got the hang of it quicken your pace.

You may feel as though you are 'sashaying' a little but you can feel the difference that it makes and if you are walking fast enough your heart rate will rise.Speed walking burns more calories than joggingStudies undertaken at the University of Massachusetts revealed that 'speed or race walking' at high speeds burns more calories than jogging at the same pace. Seems hard to believe I know but race-walking was found to burn 120-130 calories per mile compared to 110-120 for jogging.Race walking also improves your upper body fitness too as you need to pump your arms to walk really fast. Keeping fit this way is much better for your knees and hips than running which is much higher impact. You can read more about the benefits of walking on the NHS website here.An ardent dog walker, I have walked this way all my adult life. It comes automatically now and I hate dawdling along with other people. My children have long joked that I walk as though I am trying to get a stick out of my bottom!Whatever it takes I say! If you want to be fit, 50 and still in your size 10 jeans then give it some thought.

Aging Is a Treatable Disease

Live Healthy - Look Marvelous - Live LongerThere are actions you can, and should take today to dramatically improve your health, your appearance and your longevity. You can control 70% of the factors affecting your longevity; only 30% are controlled by genetics until very late in life when genetics become more controllingAlmost all of the effects of aging and the common diseases that come with aging are treatable, to at least some extent. The key is early detection and early treatment.Our understanding of the aging process is advancing rapidly. Some scientists believe that the first immortal human may be living today.In 1786, life expectancy was 24 years. Better diets and some medical innovations allowed it to double to 48 years in the next 100 years.Modern medicine has now increased life expectancy to over 76 years. Future medicine promises to increase it to over 100 years during our lifetime."Over half the baby boomers here in America are going to see their hundredth birthday and beyond in excellent health." says Dr. Ronald Klatz of the American Academy of Anti-Aging. "We're looking at life spans for the baby boomers and the generation after the baby boomers of 120 to 150 years of age."The key to Live Healthy - Look Marvelous - Live Longer is to delay the diseases of aging so that when they do occur, it is very late in your life.The causes of aging are finally being understood. There are actions you can take today to take advantage of the recent medical developments. Dr. Rudman ran a series of tests on aging people and demonstrated that the effects of aging could be slowed and even reversed. He concluded: "The overall deterioration of the body that comes with growing old is not inevitable." The Causes of AgingAlmost all life on earth blossoms with youth, until it has reproduced and passed its genes on to the next generation. After that, the flowers wilt and die, and we humans began to age. Yes, we begin to age while we are still in our 20's.We age because the products of our metabolism, I.e., the "ashes" from the oxidation processes that produce energy in our cells, accumulate faster then our endocrine system can remove them. This is because most of the cleansing hormones that surged through our youthful bodies begin to decrease as we begin to age. Some of these more critical hormones have decreased by about 10 to 30% as we enter our 30's. The decreases become ever more dramatic as we enter successive decades of life. Most of our hormones have decreased by over 50% and some have been reduced to near zero as we enter our 70's. So we age. Our muscles and bones weaken; our reaction time slows; we lose our agility; all combine to make us more susceptible to accidents. Our immune system weakens and makes us more susceptible to disease. And we die.The Death ClockDr. Hayflick has shown that we have another cause of aging. He has shown that we have a built-in death date of about 120 years, if diseases or accidents do not get us earlier. The point at which our cells have divided a fixed number of times sets this death date. It has been termed the "Hayflick limit."Our cells divide to produce new cells to replace the old cells damaged by metabolic ash build-up, free radicals, toxins, and other wear and tear mechanisms. As the cells divide, the chromosomes split to provide chromosomes for the new cells. When the chromosomes split, they lose part of their telomeres - the genes at their ends that keep the chromosomes organized. After a certain number of splits, the telomeres wear away and become too short to keep the chromosome organized and therefore the cell dies without being able to replace itself.You can think of telomeres as analogous to the plastic bands on the ends of shoelaces. Telomeres hold the important DNA code intact, preventing it from fraying as the molecules replicate over time.

Resetting the Death ClockBut tests over the past few years have shown that the "Hayflick limit" can be extended by the use of an enzyme that causes the "organizing genes" at the ends of the chromosomes (the telomeres) to re-grow. This enzyme is called telomerase.Telomerase treatments on human cells in the laboratory have indicated that telomerase can make human cells immortal. Doctors and researchers involved in these treatments are reporting that it is their belief that death is not inevitable.Telomerase is actually an enzyme (a catalytic protein) that is able to arrest or reverse the telomere shortening process. The body produces telomerase when we are embryos in the womb to accommodate the very rapid growth of the embryo. But, unfortunately our bodies do not produce telomerase after birth except possibly for the creation of sperm.So for humans to extend life we must do two things: first, eliminate the oxidants and toxins in our foods and environment; and find a dietary or pharmaceutical method for increasing and preserving the length of our cells' telomeres.Promising Anti-Aging ResearchThere are many ongoing projects that promise to solve our problems of aging. One is from a team of South Korean scientists. They report that they have created a newly-synthesized molecule, named CGK733 that can make cells younger."All cells face an inevitable death as they age. On this path, cells became lethargic and in the end stop dividing but we witnessed that CGK733 can block the process," Prof. Kim Tae-kook reported. He further stated: "We also found the synthetic compound can reverse aging, by revitalizing already-lethargic cells. Theoretically, this can give youth to the elderly via rejuvenating cells."Kim expects that the CGK733-empowered drugs that keep cells youthful far beyond their normal life span would be commercialized in less than 10 years.Researchers at The Wistar Institute have defined a key target of an evolutionarily conserved protein that regulates the process of aging. The study provides fundamental knowledge about key mechanisms of aging that could point toward new anti-aging strategies and cancer therapies.Aging saps our strength and ability to enjoy life, cripples us, and eventually kills us. Tens of millions die from age-related conditions each and every year. Comparatively few people know that degenerative aging can be slowed with diet and lifestyle choices, medicines and nutracuetials.Comparatively few people are aware of the many serious scientific efforts, presently underway, aimed at understanding and intervening in the aging process - in order to one day reverse its effects.Your objective should be to have a healthy life and continue to live long enough to take advantage of all the medical advances and technologies now in development.Our health is determined by our genetics, our diets, and our past and current lifestyles. You can now optimize your current and future health by defining and taking medications, vitamins, and other supplements and treatments tailored to your specific health needs. The program to do this recognizes the validity of three basic themes:

The Future of Medicine is in Personal Tailoring

Preventative Medicine is Key

Aging is a Treatable Disease.
Your Anti-Aging Longevity PlanIt is strongly recommended that you get familiar with the latest anti-aging information and develop your personal Longevity Plan. The key to longer life is to detect any health issues as early as possible and take advantage of the available technology to address them. Time really is of the essence.

More Benefits of Exercise - It Can Improve Your Skin

The many benefits of exercise make it a no-brainer that everyone should do. From better overall health to more restful sleep, and importantly for so many people the part that it can take for weight loss should make the decision about exercise only as to which one you should take up. The biological effects of exercise on the body literally have an effect on humans from head to toe. But if that weren't enough exercise can actually make you look better. For those with some level of vanity, I'm sure now I have your interest.Skin health is directly related to blood circulation. When blood is flowing throughout the skin, constantly providing it with oxygen and nutrients and removing waste, it will remain vibrant, with good color and remain supple. Exercise will keep the blood flowing at optimal levels, and as a result the skin cells will remain healthy. Improper blood flow can eventually cause the skin to die.But exercise can go even further to provide a youthful look and maintain healthy aging. We are now finding that engaging in the right exercise can maintain tone in the skin similarly to keeping good muscle tone. As we age, our skin naturally sags because it loses a thin layer of fat under the surface. But by building a replacement layer of lean muscle mass it can support the skin and eliminate the skin sag. This also helps to eliminate that ugly cellulite that really causes that aging look.So along with a diet that supports lean muscle mass, the exercises you should be looking to do are the ones that promote lean muscle mass. Excessive cardio training is not considered the best for the skin and for that matter overall fitness. Long distance running and typical cardio training are now considered to be even harmful to our health.

This is because as more stress is placed on the body over long periods of time, a stress hormone called cortisol is produced. This begins to break down collagen in skin, which is a protein that holds the skin together, giving it its structure. We have found that a better way of working out is intense interval training because it has been found to be the more natural way the body responds to training.Short bursts of this intense training interspersed with bodyweight workouts will help you to challenge your muscles. Pushups, lunges, four-count squat thrusts and abdominal planks are great bodyweight exercises that need no equipment whatsoever. Various yoga routines such as Bikram Yoga are all-inclusive programs that tax the body and encourage flexibility and suppleness.Doing any of these exercises will be of no help to the individuals who do this training, of course unless they stay properly hydrated. The skin can get damaged quite quickly if you work out but don't drink the proper amount of water. And how do you know how much this will be? Pinch the skin on the back of your hand. You need to hydrate better if your skin does not spring back quickly.

How To Keep Making Friends

The Royals have been gracing Australians with the pleasure of their company. The media love events like this. The press, magazines, and television coverage ensure that the focus is the guest's every move.The guests seem accustomed to living in a fishbowl, having their every action scrutinised by 'experts', and sharing their child with whomever shows any interest. The visitors are likely to be just as pleased as most OZ are when their tour is over.Having visitors, whether they pop-in uninvited or are expected, is good for us - as long as they don't stay too long, of course. The world is an increasingly busy place, so staying in contact is usually worth effort and time.We're not privy to the real reason for the visit, but let's suppose that they'd like to build a friendship. Friendships are relationships that develop over time. The Royals might become future friends - at the moment, the best they can hope for is relationship-building.Aristotle had a fair bit to say about friendships. He considered that there were three types of friendships - useful, pleasure-providing, or virtuous. Friendships for usefulness get us what we want; membership of an exclusive club, desired contacts, etc. Friendships for pleasure are those who are fun to be around. Friendships of virtue are those in which we are valued for ourselves. True, virtuous friends are not going to evaluate us according to worldly criteria; it's the core self that they're interested in. Oprah summed it up beautifully when she observed that many people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. Or as Cicero observed thousands of years ago, 'The shifts of fortune test the reliability of friends'.

The Royals, of course, may not have considered the type of friendship they're aiming for, or even if they agree with Aristotle's observations: time will tell, perhaps. One thing we do know is that they will have to work at it.We also know that friendships help us to live longer, better. Whether we call it a 'strategy' or not, we need to make sure that once a friend passes on (leaves or goes somewhere else, if you like) that he or she is replaced by someone else.William, Kate, and George can't be counted as friends, yet, but they have made the all-important first-step toward achieving Aristotle's virtuous-type.

Tips for Making Your Hands Look Youthful

Our hands always need care and attention but seldom get what they deserve. As we reach 50 and beyond, the skin on the backs of the hands loses it's elasticity and is an age "tell tale", despite how much care you've given your face, neck and body.To keep your hands looking beautiful and to minimise the signs of aging, there are a few simple changes (or additions) you can include in your beauty routine.Give Yourself a Home-ManicureIf you've never done a manicure for yourself at home, it's really not that difficult, and you probably already have all the tools you'll need somewhere around the house.What You'll Need

Cuticle oil (baby oil will do)

Nail clippers

Emery board

A cuticle stick

Exfoliating scrub

Hand cream or Lotion

Nail polish (Be brave and select a bold colour)

A few cotton balls
Set some "me time" aside, and follow these simple steps:• Remove old nail polish with an acetone free nail polish remover.• Rinse your hands in warm water and massage an exfoliate into your hands and nails, including around the cuticles and in between the fingers.• Rinse off the exfoliant and pat dry with a towel.• Put one drop of warm cuticle oil or cream on each nail and massage around the cuticle and nail.• Use a cuticle tool to gently push the cuticles back. If you are using an orange stick, wrap some cotton wool around the end.

When you've done every nail, rinse your hands in warm, soapy water.

If your nails need a trim, use nail clippers rather than scissors.

Using an emery board, file across the top of each nail to tidy them up.

File in one direction since a sawing motion will make the nails peel and split. To

create a neat finish, file from side to centre.

Before painting your nails, remove any residual grease with a cotton pad soaked in an acetone free nail polish remover.

Apply a base coat to each nail from base to tip.

Apply two coats of a fabulous colour, or go for something natural, and then add a final clear topcoat. Allow two minutes between applications to allow each coat to dry.
To maintain a great set of hands:

Wear sunscreen (always) to protect your hands against sun damage and age spots.

Always use hand cream after you wash your hands.

Your nails aren't tools! Use a staple remover or screw driver rather than your nails.

Harsh chemicals seriously dry out your hands, so wear gloves when cleaning, washing the dishes and doing the gardening, etc.

Treat yourself to a spa manicure once in a while!

Anti Aging Tips - Is There Such Thing As Anti Aging Foods That Help You Live Longer?

We all know that our diet plays a large part in how healthy we are. Anti aging and skin care products are one thing, but are there certain foods that can help counteract the negative effects aging has on the body? The simple answer is yes!These foods contain the right types of antioxidants and vitamins that can help our bodies and our skin function at optimum levels and aid in the anti aging process.These foods, in conjunction with a good skin care regime, will dramatically improve the health of your skin and body:- Red Wine / Resveratrol
- Garlic
- Avocado
- Coconut oil
- Berries
- Dark Chocolate
- Beans
- Fish
- Vegetables
- Nuts
- Whole GrainsI'd like to delve a little further in to my top 3 foods that are essential to anti aging.Red wine, or more accurately the antioxidant 'resveratrol' that is contained in red wine, is the most potent source of antioxidant known today and is found naturally in foods like grapes and nuts.Studies have shown that when comparing two groups of overweight mice on a high-fat diet, giving one group of mice resveratrol has dramatic effects. The first group of mice were given high doses of resveratrol as well as a high-fat diet, the other were not given any dose of resveratrol. The overweight mice that were given resveratrol were found to be healthier and lived longer than the overweight mice that did not get resveratrol.Subsequent studies have shown that when started at middle age, resveratrol slowed deterioration of body and skin cells that resulted from aging, as well as repairing and improving cell function.
