The course of ageing.
New study: Which ageing type are you?
Researchers at Stanford University in California (USA) found that there are at least four different ways in which the body ages over the course of a lifetime.
Everyone is different and so they age more slowly or faster. The ageing process can have different effects: The youthful appearance disappears, the body becomes weaker, and at some point mental performance also decreases. No wonder you want to stop this process. Although the source of eternal youth has not yet been found, scientists at Stanford University in California have gained new knowledge on the subject.
The team around geneticist Michael Snyder was able to identify four ageing types in a group of test persons. Will the new information help to slow down the ageing process?
Ageing type is linked to a specific organ or process in the body
In their study, which appeared in the journal “Nature Medicine” in January, they investigated the ageing of the body using biochemical methods. 106 women and men aged 29 to 75 years were followed over a period of several years. Later, the researchers concentrated on 43 subjects. They collected data on their genes, proteins in the blood, cytokines (proteins that regulate cell growth, among other things), metabolic products and microbes. As the study progressed, the values changed and the researchers were able to identify the different ageing variants.
Each type is linked to a particular organ or process in the body. Some have changes in metabolism, others in the immune system, liver or kidney function. People whose aging process had an effect on their metabolism developed a certain haemoglobin in their blood, which could be an indication of diabetes. People of the immune aging type are more susceptible to inflammation in the body. Not everyone can be automatically assigned to one of these ageing types, but mixed forms are also possible. And there are probably other types that could be discovered in further research.

#11 Spices Spice up your life!
Spices add flavour and health benefits to any meal!
They also have some age defying qualities.
The smell of cinnamon is a delightful one, and you should add it to your diet more often
because cinnamon has been shown to increase the production of collagen in your skin making
it more firm and youthful looking.
If you like heat, then you’re in luck because research suggests the capsaicin in chili can
reverse some of the age related changes that take place in the skin’s cells.
So, try spicing up your next dish.
Ginger is another spice that can help prolong the signs of aging.
Ginger contains a compound called gingerol.
This compound could reduce the appearance of age spots that appear when our skin becomes
damaged from the sun.
Plus it also contains anti inflammatory properties.
We’ve got two more items and you’re gonna want to stick around for the last one...
#12 Bone Broth Slurping down some bone broth might not be
part of your regular diet, but in the health community it’s widely known for its health
Bone broth is made from cooking down the bones of your leftover meals.
For example you can make bone broth from the leftover chicken bones from your supper, or
the leftover fish bones.
This releases the nutrients into the broth.
Once you’ve done that you can enjoy the benefits like:
A boost in collagen which as you know helps your skin stay firm and fights off wrinkles.
Studies also show that collagen can assist bone health and keep your muscles strong.

More research needs to be done on bone broth but the research that is out there is very
promising in terms of anti aging.
Alright last, but certainly not least.
#13 Dark Chocolate We thought we’d save the best for last.
Keep in mind, it HAS to be dark chocolate.
Milk chocolate doesn’t have much, if any, of the benefits we’re going to pass along.
70% Dark chocolate or higher is great in the anti aging field and fights off common ailments
that affect us as we get older like high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Eating a square or two of dark chocolate as a treat won’t spike your blood sugar and
has lots of antioxidants that defend your cells against damage from free radicals.
Dark chocolate is high in calories so you want to keep this as a small treat every now
and again, to get all the benefits.

Did you know that the thirst sensation becomes weaker as we age? That means the older we get, the more important it is that we keep ourselves hydrated.
The research team’s vision: staying healthy longer
The classics among doctors’ instructions to stay healthy for longer are well known: Eat a healthy diet, exercise, do not smoke and do not drink alcohol. But now, with the study, everyone could have their ageing type determined and take targeted action against the risks. With regular tests, the ageing process can be monitored and, if necessary, intervention can be taken. “It can help individuals to accurately identify risk factors for their health and identify the areas where they are most likely to have problems later,” Snyder said, explaining the benefits of knowing your own . Those who change their lifestyle in time can become biologically even younger.
Michael Snyder summarised the findings of his study in a comparison: “As your car gets older, some components will probably wear out faster than others, such as the gearbox or brakes. And you need to know these parts to ideally repair them”.

veins can be tricky and expensive to
treat and apart from expensive laser and
intense pulse light procedures there's
not a lot you could do about them the
only way you can avoid spicy food
related flare-ups as if you avoid it
completely and opted for mild or non
spicy food number 9 carbohydrates or
wheat carbs and wheat products are
converted to sugar if you don't use them
this results in higher blood sugar not
only will this lead to wrinkled skin it
could also lead to weight gain which
will make you look and feel older always
try to keep carbs in check and unless
you need the energy for a workout it's
best to grab fresh veggies or grilled
chicken to munch on number 10 salty
foods foods with too much salt in them
lead to excess amount of sodium in your
blood this in turn causes water
retention in your body and the skin this
makes you feel bloated and makes your
skin look puffy tired and aged high-salt

also known to damage the DNA by
shortening the telomeres which

but can wreak havoc on your skin and
health if consumed in high quantities so
always try to keep your salt intake to a
number eleven dried fruits dried fruits
are loaded with sugars which tend to get
stuck in your teeth and when sugar

plaque and cavities if it's not removed
this can make you look older than you
are they're also high in sulfites which
preserve food but are not always that
good for your skin sulfites increase
free radicals which impede collagen
growth making your skin look older so
opt for whole fresh fruit instead if
nothing but dried apricots will do brush
your teeth right after eating or to
sugarless gum number 12 rice cakes rice
cakes are usually considered to be a
healthy food but they're not as healthy
as they seemed to be they have a
glycemic index of more than 70 which is
considered very high and are broken down
by your body the same way as sugar
excessive levels of sugar in your body
can deplete collagen exacerbating the
signs of aging so try and go easy on
those rice cakes next time number 13
margarine for a long time margarine was
touted as a better choice than butter
because of its low saturated fat content
but it's been found that people who
regularly consumed heavy amounts of
margarine have more wrinkles than those
who ate less due to the presence of
harmful polyunsaturated fats these
polyunsaturated fats tend to increase
inflammation leading to an increase in
oxidative stress this damages your
body's organs including the skin leading
to dry dull appearance in the formation
of wrinkles avoid margarine and opt for
small amounts of real butter instead do
you eat a lot of these foods are there
