What is the problem with aging?
If you are wondering what is the problem with AGING? I will first ask you this question. Have you noticed that older people tend to get sick more often? Have you ever wondered why?
It’s pretty obvious that older people have less capacity to work than someone of younger years. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule, but it’s a slippery slope downhill as you are age. Ending up incapacitated in a nursing home is not a happy ending.
The problem is the human body just doesn’t function as well as it did when you were younger. As we age we actually become more susceptible to age-related disease. Why?
We first need to understand that women are at their genetic best around 23 years of age and men around 25 years of age.
Around this age men and women tend to have a lot of energy, look their best with a body that functions well. The reason is they have not started to age. Not to say some young people don’t get sick, they do. However, everyone is at their cellular best at this age.
As you pass the age of 20, the cells that grew you diminish. By 40, you have lost about 60% of the stem cells that grow and maintain your body.
What’s wrong with stem cells diminishing?
This means that your cells have a reduced capacity to respond to the need to regenerate damaged tissue. As well as damage caused by aging. Damaged stem cells are bad news because they can cause inflammation and stem cell dysfunction. This further exacerbates symptoms of aging and disease.
Another major factor to consider is telomeres. These are the caps or tips of your DNA. Damage occurs to these as we age and they get shorter.
What happens when telomeres wear out?
These caps naturally wear down over time until they get so short that they can no longer protect the cell. Short telomeres are linked to chronic and degenerative diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s, and early death.
Wearing out as we age
There are more factors at play in aging, however, damaged telomeres a reduction in stem cells is something of concern. Essentially the body is wearing out as we age. Now that we know that it is directly related to disease and illness wouldn’t it be a good idea if we could address these two aging factors?
If you could remove almost all of those old cells, and replace and repopulate them with new fresh young ones so your biology could function as you were in your 20s again, is this something you would want to do?
Whilst a healthy lifestyle including diet, exercise can go a long way to slow down the reduction in stem cells and shortening of telomeres it will not stop it from happening.
In fact, if we want to stop it it is going to take some remarkable science. Intervention is required that you just can’t do by yourself.
I mean you can’t exercise and diet yourself out of aging like you for weight loss. It’s just not possible.
Two recent scientific discoveries that may hold the key
The first is the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2009 awarded jointly to Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak “for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase.”
The second is another discovery by Harvard Scientists in 2017, relating to nicotinamide mononucleotide, a substance known as NMN has shown to turn an old mouse back to a young mouse.
This can be akin to an 80 year old returning back to the health of a 25 year old. From this study they have precluded NAD boosters as “one of the most important molecules for life.” Essentially, NMN helps to improve stem cell function and enhance life span.
So if we can, in fact, protect and lengthen our telomeres and restore stem cells we now can have a serious chance at warding off aging and age-related disease.
A proactive approach to the problem of aging
Since I am not one to sit back and do nothing I like to be proactive about my health.
What is the problem with aging?
Well, after seeing my Father develop early-onset Alzheimer’s at 54 years of age you can understand how I see the problem. My motivation to address this issue is huge. I mean, he was in a nursing home by 56!! That is not right.
So, I definitely am mindful of everything I eat. I exercise regularly. I drink plenty of water and work on managing my stress. However, I am aware that is not going to cut the mustard when it comes to aging. Although it will go a long way to support my health.
An extra boost
That’s why I have chosen to take a telomere support supplement (Sisel TSX – Telomere Support Extreme) and another supplement (Sisel AGE Pill) that supports the body to boost NAD. I am pretty convinced by my own results and the results of others that I know that they are having a positive impact.
I personally have noticed a massive difference in my skin, hair and overall energy levels. So far I happy with the results and excited to see what new scientific breakthrough is coming out next. I am sure it will be DaBomb!
In closing check out the difference of the before and after photo of my friend’s Khai’s results. He took the AGE Pill for 5 months drinking 2 litres of water a day. Well, you can be the judge for yourself!
