“Everybody wants to get old, but nobody wants to be”.
The secret of eternal youth
Even if we all wish for it – unfortunately there is no such thing as a one-time magic potion à la Asterix. However, if you follow the following points or integrate them into your everyday life, it can have a lasting positive effect on your telomeres and your cell status:
- Stop Smoking!
Smoking is a brutal attack on the cells and therefore causes premature wear and tear of the telomeres and lasting cell damage.
- Get out of stress
Yes, we know, this is not easy at all. Especially because stress is also strongly produced from the outside and we can hardly escape it. Therefore, it is extremely important that you consciously take time out and relax. Be it through meditation, mindfulness exercises or a walk in nature. Regular deceleration through beautiful moments is worth its weight in gold.
- Long live sport
Studies show time and again: exercise is an ideal way to stay vital and young. Oxidative stress decreases and the length of the telomeres can demonstrably be extended. But please always do it moderately and without exaggerated thoughts of performance. If implemented incorrectly, the positive effect unfortunately turns into the opposite and stresses the body. Three to five times a week for 45 minutes each are perfect as a fountain of youth.
- Sleep well
Good, restful sleep is probably one of the most important recipes for staying young and vital. More than seven hours of sleep ensure a better cell status – however, the quality of sleep and thus the sleeping atmosphere also play a decisive role. Fresh air, a high-quality mattress and the avoidance of blue light from TVs, smartphones and tablets help, among other things, with the production of the important sleep hormone melatonin, which controls the day-night rhythm of the human body.
- Think Positive
Even if it is not always easy – especially in these times – to see the glass as half full and not half empty: Positive thinking, laughter and conscious enjoyment are good advisors for staying young, attractive and vital, this has been scientifically proven… and the great thing is that life is also much more fun that way.
- Active hydrogen – the ultimate antioxidant
Combined with a balanced diet, Active Hydrogen is THE way to “hunt down” free radicals and fight oxidative stress. So it is no wonder that in Pakistan’s Hunza Valley – where Dr. Patrick Flanagan discovered Active Hydrogen – there was a high proportion of 100-year-olds, even 110- and 120-year-olds among the locals. What’s more, they were also in the best of health, in excellent physical condition and capable of producing offspring well into old age.
How good, then, that our Active H® contains Active Hydrogen and that one capsule, according to its discoverer Dr. Patrick Flanagan, is equivalent to the antioxidant power of 10,000 glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice.
