The current rise in popularity of herbal supplements and multi-vitamin products has led many people to question whether these products are truly necessary and whether they work as intended. The reality is that while most people’s diets do meet their basic nutritional needs, today’s lifestyles can take a toll on the body in other ways. For instance, exposure to pollutants such as chemical cleansers and automotive exhaust create reactions in our bodies that previous generations never encountered.In addition, people today live longer than they ever have in the past, and part of the joy of living longer is being healthy and happy enough to make the most of that extra time. To this end, anti aging supplements can help not only with the appearance of the skin, but with overall health and well-being, allowing you to lead a longer, happier, more active life.Many people first begin studying anti aging vitamins in an attempt to halt the physical appearance aspects of aging. For instance, many supplements seek to target wrinkles, spots on the skin from sun damage or scarring, undereye circles, or tired, sagging skin. It is true that many supplements can improve the skin’s appearance and elasticity, affording a younger, healthier, more vibrant appearance. However, these same vitamins and supplements can also improve overall health by offering similar effects on the body’s internal structure as well.Anti aging vitamins are concerned with more than simply physical appearance. While many may consider anti aging to be a matter of appearance alone, the truly dangerous elements of aging are disease and the wear and tear the body suffers naturally over time. To this end, anti aging supplements include not only those aimed at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but also those aimed at proactively preventing heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and other diseases and conditions that people become more prone to as they age.For instance, anti-oxidants not only improve the skin’s appearance but can also improve cardiovascular health and even reduce cancer risk. A diet rich in vitamin C will also protect heart function. Fiber-rich diets can decrease the risk of many different cancers, and also help the body rid itself of toxins, resulting in smoother, clearer skin.While the best actions you can take to reduce the signs and symptoms of aging are to maintain a healthy diet and a healthy weight, get regular exercise, drink sufficient quantities of water, and reduce stress as much as possible, anti aging supplements are available to pick up the slack and improve upon your own efforts.
If you are trying to look 10 years younger or more, there is no shortage of information or products to help you achieve your goal. Nowadays, it seems everywhere you turn there is some new product or cosmetic procedure claiming to remove wrinkles, restore elasticity, bring back radiance… the list goes on and on.But before you try that breakthrough product or visit that hot new medical day spa there are 3 anti aging traps you need to know about. Fall into one of these, and no matter what products you are using, you could be undermining your results without even knowing it.Anti Aging Trap #1- No Passion for Anti Aging or Complete Acceptance of the Aging Process”Passion for anti aging?” you say. “Of course I have passion for anti aging. Why do you think I spend hundreds of dollars on products and procedures?”Let’s make one thing clear- passion for anti aging and looking 10 years younger has nothing to do with how many products you buy or how many visits you schedule with your plastic surgeon. Passion for anti aging starts in the brain:For example: Every morning when I wake up, the first thing on my mind is anti aging. I am constantly researching, studying, putting test ideas into practice to stay and feel younger and more vibrant. I thoroughly enjoy it and a day doesn’t go by without me thinking about anti aging and trying to look 10 years younger.Now I know everyone doesn’t or even can’t wake up with anti aging on the brain. There are kids to get off to school, jobs to go to, bills to pay; the list goes on and on.But to really achieve any level of anti aging, you do have to have some passion for it.Why?Because passion for anything, whether it be looking 10 years younger, losing weight, or getting a promotion starts in the brain. The moment you set your mind to achieve something your brain immediately goes into overdrive coming up with ideas to bring this plan to fruition. Passion is the fuel which drives this process. The more passionate you are about an idea, the higher the probability that you will achieve what you desire.Unfortunately, anti aging or trying to look 10 years younger or more quickly loses momentum. This is because many people feel there are only a few options to truly stay youthful. Once they start to age, they believe the only options they have are plastic surgery or Botox. Which brings us to the next anti aging trap:Anti Aging trap #2- Overloading On Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic ProceduresI recently met a 48 woman who was obviously addicted to plastic surgery. Her face was smooth, taut and unlined. She had no wrinkles on her forehead, around her eyes or around her mouth. But guess what? She didn’t look ten years younger. She looked like a 48 year old woman that had a lot of work done.Her face was mask-like, even when she smiled. You can see this look on a lot of celebrities (Courtney Cox, Nicole Kidman, Joan Rivers). Maybe that’s why some people think it is the best way to fight the aging process. People love to emulate their favorite stars.Now I’m not against plastic surgery. Compared to only 10 years ago, plastic and cosmetic surgery has come a long way in helping people everywhere to look and feel younger. And perhaps that’s the problem. Because it has become so much more affordable it is now the quick fix instead of the last resort. Too much plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures will not make you look 10 years younger. It will however make you look strange, unnatural and like a plastic surgery junkie.Anti Aging Trap #3 Setting the Bar Too LowWhen I ask women what they really want to achieve from all the effort they put into staying youthful, more often than not most of them respond with the following:”I want to look good for my age.”The only way I know how to respond to this statement is “Why?”If you truly want to look good for your age, no matter if it’s 30, 40 or 50+ then I say go for it. You could probably achieve your goal in a matter of months if you haven’t done so already. But know this:You will never go to a college sporting event and be mistaken for a coed by 4 different students. You won’t be able to wear a mini skirt and look “age appropriate”. (Sorry to use that phrase. I actually despise it but that’s a whole other article.) You will never go for a jog and have 3 seventeen year olds on scooters ask what college you go to.Why? Because “looking good for your age” is setting the bar way too low. Sure you look good, but only for your age. It’s the equivalent of the comment: “you throw pretty good for a girl”. You want to look good period. You want to look so good that no one can say you look good for your age because no one can tell how old you are.I know plenty of women aged 40+ who can and have been mistaken for a college coed. Who still have the ability to pull off a mini and flip flops. And who have 17 year old boys waving to them from their motorcycles and scootersNow that we discussed the 3 Anti Aging Traps and how easy they are to fall into, let’s talk about the good news. Look at the following quote:”Anti Aging to us is a lifestyle. My wife and I decided a long time ago that we weren’t going to age. We were going to eat right, constantly try new things, take care of our bodies. But most importantly, we set our mind to it and I guess we’re doing all right.”-from a 52 year old man and his 46 year old wife.This quote came from a married couple I recently met who I had guessed to be in their mid thirties. The man confessed to me that he was actually 52 years old and his wife was 46. I was pretty stunned. Being as obsessed as I am with anti aging, I can usually guess peoples’ ages pretty well. So this really threw me for a loop.This couple looked, walked and talked like they were 35 years old. And a young 35 at that. It was truly amazing and I couldn’t stop looking at them.So how were they able to look at least 10 to 15 years younger? Is it possible that they had some plastic surgery?They were very open and honest about their beauty regimen and upkeep. They told me they have had “absolutely no Botox”. And no plastic surgery. They both have skin peels every six months to rejuvenate their skin. They eat no processed food whatsoever and a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. They exercise 5 days a week, stretch extensively to stay flexible and agile and keep abreast of new innovations in the anti aging industry.Everything they told me was fascinating and their plan was obviously working for them. But I kept going back to their original quote: “My wife and I decided that we weren’t going to age.”That small statement is one of the key reasons why they are able to stay so vibrant and young looking. In their mind, they wouldn’t accept the aging process and when they had that affirmation set firmly in their brain that set in motion a life-long plan of fighting aging at every turn. Once that affirmation was solidly in place, everything else that followed became second nature to them.And that is the true key to anti aging and staying young and vital. Believing with absolute certainty that you can. So stay passionate about anti aging, don’t overload on cosmetic and plastic surgery and set that bar way up high. When you avoid these anti aging traps, you’ll be surprised how quickly your body and mind respond. You may just wake up a couple months from now looking 10 years younger.
With the importance of exercise and nutrition to maintain optimal health to keep the doctor away, many of us eat what is good to our taste buds but actually lack the proper nutrition we need for our bodies to perform at it’s fullest potential.But what if there was a way to peek into your genetics and assess exactly what nutrients your body is deficient of? Then, after assessing your nutritional deficiencies what if there existed such a way to create nutritional supplements that compensate for your particular deficiencies through your very own DNA make up?Well I have good news for you. Because for the first time in history scientists have completed the Genome Project and are now able to peek into our genetic makeup, generate a DNA report, then create a unique blend of whole food, organics, super fruit, plant based nutrition supplements that are scientifically proven to make a difference in health and nutrition based on your very own unique DNA.As of August 2008, Genewize Life Sciences brought to market the Lifemap Nutrition System as a breakthrough in Science and has taken the health and wellness industry by storm. Genewize Lifemap Nutrition System is reported by numerous proud consumers to provide more energy, endurance, concentration, better sleep, and also the relief of joint pain, headaches, lower blood pressure and a host of other health related dispositions. The days of guessing as to what works for your individual health needs are a thing of the past. “Why guess when you can be assessed?” That is a loud spoken quote pertaining to this all new DNA based nutrition system. Now, more than ever are consumers agreeing that One Size Doe’s Not Fit All when it comes to nutritional supplements.Genewize Lifemap Nutrition System is uniquely formulated and genetically matched to be a customized nutrition system based from your very own DNA. Each formula is personally created from a potential of 120 ingredients and over 577,000 variations. It all starts with the customer receiving a self administered swab kit in the mail, then swabbing the inner cheek area, and placing the swabs into the prepaid postage envelope which is bar coded for your security, then mail back to Genewize Life Sciences Laboratory to be assessed. Within 4-6 weeks you will receive a copy of your DNA healthy aging report, a list of the ingredients in your personal formula, and a 1 month supply of your customized DNA based Nutritional supplements sent to your door step and every month thereafter on complete auto ship.As with every new scientific breakthrough, there is always a fraction of those that are non believers. And this one is not an exception to the rule. Many disbelieve that science has come this far while others take the negative route without any investigation at all. On the other hand, many are turning to the Lifemap Nutrition System as an alternative to medicine and also as a prevention method from some health related diseases ever surfacing in the first place..
