Anti-aging research is advancing very rapidly. We will soon begin reaping the benefits of this research. Currently a few expensive and yet unproven anti-aging treatments are available but, as the research continues to pour in, the treatments will become more effective. As more competition develops in the dynamically exploding health supplement and anti-aging business sectors prices will start to drop.
For people who are past their prime and who want to reap the benefits of this research, it is more important now than ever to adjust their daily regime to include a solid nutritious diet, some moderate exercise, and a few supplements. It is also important to keep up with and utilize the latest advances in anti-aging research to improve one's daily routine. This website was created with those ideas in mind. Keep informed and stay young!
The typical American diet, nutritionally speaking, is woefully inadequate. The average lifespan in America can be significantly extended through improved nutrition. Changing your diet so it becomes more nutritious is one of the easier ways to help one live long enough to reap the benefits of ant-aging research. How can you do this?
Quite simply we need to reduce our caloric intake, increase our daily intake of fruits and vegetables, and lower our fat and grain consumption. Even with a "good" diet, it is probably impossible to get all the nutrients we require for opitmum nutrition. There is a distinction between essential nutrients and optimum nutrition. Experts say we require 50 to 100 essential human nutrients. They are essential because a deficiency in any of them will, over time, create visible symptoms of malnutrition.
Note: detailed information about specific nutrients and super foods can be found at the web links (links are colored blue) embedded in the text that follows. If you really want to know more about superfoods take a few moments and visit these sites.
Most nutrition experts believe there are many non-essential nutrients that can benefit the human body. The human body requires 100s (some say 1000s) of interacting nutrients to function at its best. Optimum body health and performance are only possible if we have a good understanding of the ins and outs of nutrition. A partial list of most human nutrients can be found at: Human Nutrients.
A similar situation exists in the area of Super Foods. There are many foods that are touted as being Super Foods. What are the "Ultimate Superfoods" and how beneficial are they? Since all foods have varying nutrition values, this question has many possible answers and the answers will vary a little depending on your individual nutritional needs, but there is absolutely no question that eating superfoods and possibly taking a few supplements can help you maintain your good health.
Most medical doctors only have a superficial knowledge of the basics of nutrition. That leaves only a few authorities that can give you easy to understand answers to these questions. One of my goals is help you educate yourself on the subjects of human nutrition and super foods.
Human nutrition is a complex subject. The human body may require many 100s of
nutrients to achieve optimum levels of health and physical performance.
You need to have a good understanding of the science of human nutrition
to make sense of all this. I recommend looking at a few of the popular
and easy to understand books on human nutrition that appear below. Sometimes authors allow their books to be read for free.
