I don’t want to age any faster than necessary and I am sure you don’t want to either. And what in the world is a telomere?

Enjoy All Life Has to Offer!!

Enjoy All Life Has to Offer!!

Did you realize you have a profound affect on how quickly your body ages?  Every morning looking in the mirror can tell us how we are aging externally. The real issue is how you are aging internally. How well are your cells and ultimately your organs and glands holding up against the daily assault of free radicals, toxins, stress and nutritional deficiencies?  The idea is to slow down the aging process if we can.  There are things you can do to not only reduce the aging process but also maybe even reverse it in some cases.

Can We Slow Down Aging, YES! The sooner in life you begin to live a life of wellness the younger your body can be, as you get older.

So what does aging really mean? Technically, aging is a combination of all metabolic life activities, the effects of exposure to toxins, microbial agents, and nutrient deficiencies and their total combined effect over time on each cell.

I am going to try to keep this simple! Anti-aging is the positive effect of the antioxidants and nutrients we pour into our body that counter the negative effects of the metabolic processes and our exposure to toxins in our environment, food, air.

As part of life, we are exposed to microorganisms, environmental toxins, drugs, emotional toxicities, unhealthy foods, nutrient deficiencies and stress; let’s call these “negative health catalyst”, or NHC. These NHCs have a direct impact on our cells ability to continue to replicate in a healthy state. NHCs can cause damage to the cell and even DNA in our cells. They do this in different ways. In one case they cause free radicals to form that can damage the cells and even the DNA in the cell to the point that the cell will begin to replicate itself in an unhealthy state.  In another way they lower our immune function to the point that the immune system is not healthy enough to stop the growth of bacteria, viruses, micro organisms and even mutated cells and the mutated cells can multiply to the point of disease. In another way they turn on the adverse health potential of certain genes to express themselves as disease and illness, but potentially the most damaging effect of these NHCs is their ability to shorten our telomeres and cause damage to our DNA through free radical damage to our cells.

What Causes Aging?

In my opinion the biggest causes of aging are:

 

What Are Telomeres?

In this Illustration The Red Caps Are Telomeres

Our genes are located on twisted, double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, Telomeres are protective DNA-protein complexes, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide and hold some secrets to how we age and get cancer. Think of the plastic caps on the end of your shoelaces. This is sort of what the telomeres look like. They keep the strands of chromosomes from unraveling. As the effects of NHCs advance our cellular aging the telomeres get shorter and shorter.   Once the telomeres get so short, the cell can no longer replicate and aging accelerates.

To strengthen our telomere’s we must increase the presence of the enzyme telomerase in our cells. Telomerase is an enzyme that is responsible for keeping telomeres healthy. As we age our body’s produce less and less telomerase thus we begin to age faster and faster. In addition, the NHC’s also slow down the cellular production of telomerase.

How do we slow down the aging Process?

By living a lifestyle of wellness we greatly enhance our potential for slowing the aging process and having a life of vibrant health.  Recent studies even show that a lifestyle of wellness actually can increase the cellular production of telomerase and improve overall health. If we remove NHC’s and include nutrient dense foods (lots and veggies and fruits), pure water, relaxation, adequate sleep, health building exercise, fresh air, sunshine and emotional and spiritual balance, we can improve every facet of our health potential. You can in many cases trump genetic tendencies.  The way you live has such a powerful effect on your health that it literally can mean the difference between sudden death and a life of longevity with vibrant health.

Nutrition Makes Healthy Bodies!

Nutrition Makes Healthy Bodies!

Hold the cheese! Wait hold the Mac-n-Cheese! Say what?

Our bodies amazingly can live for a long time on little nutrition but over time the nutrient reservoir in our body shrinks if we don’t refill it.  At some point because your cells are not being fed adequate nutrition or because your cells no longer have the nutritional reserves to protect and repair themselves they become sick and then replicate in a sick or diseased state. Eventually the cell can mutate into a cancerous cell. Normally a body with plenty of nutrition will have cells that can repair themselves or they will self-destruct. Additionally, you will have an immune system that is able to recognize the sick or mutated cell and kill it. This is why nutrition and nutrient absorption is so important. Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants are vital for building a healthy body. Every tissue and bone of your body, every chemical that your body makes, every blood cell, every hormone and immune system compounds, EVERYTHING requires a certain amount of nutrients.

Cells don’t live on French fries, cheeseburgers and mac-n-cheese. The body breaks down what we eat, searching for macronutrients and micronutrients.  Macronutrients are carbohydrates, fats and protein.  Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.  Hold up, you just said macronutrients are carbohydrates, fats and protein and  that is exactly what French fries, cheeseburgers and mac-n-cheese provide, right? Well yes, it is in fact very rich in these but has very little of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids and antioxidants which are in fact what makes cells function.  Think of carbohydrates, fats and proteins as part fuel and part nutrient delivery system. The job of carbohydrates, fats and proteins is to provide calories for energy and provide vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants are vital for building a healthy body that the body needs to operate, build and repair.

The average adult has approximately 100 trillion cells and every cell in your body operates like a miniature city or country. Wow that’s hard to comprehend! Each cell has it’s own waste removal and trash disposal system (lymphatic system) It has it’s own defense system (immune system) with Army’s to destroy invaders and internal threats (cancer cells) and it’s own engineers and maintenance system to rebuild and repair what ever needs it. In addition, it has it’s on monitoring system (endocrine system) to sense when any part of your body has a need and direct the action. It has workers (enzymes) that make every task happen.

Cells make up organs and tissues in our bodies.  And even though they are in a most amazing way self-sufficient they also work in harmony together to make organs, muscles and tissues work. Just imagine making a fist with your hand. All of those muscles in your arm and hand had to operate together and in perfect harmony to make that fist. Additionally, your brain had to send signals through the nervous system to tell every cell exactly what to do. This requires your body to have healthy nerve cells and have the ability to make neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) that make those signals happen.

Your body has power plants in each cell that deliver the needed energy to sustain life and operate it’s own internal systems while fueling the bigger picture of muscles, organs and systems. It takes many vitamins and minerals to make energy possible. It takes the vitamin’s A, C, D, K2 and the minerals magnesium, boron and strontium to make healthy bones. Follow me so far?

Body building, protecting and repairing nutrients come from real foods and the richest foods in nutrients is by far and away plant foods. Processed and refined foods are absent enough nutrition to support and build a healthy body.  In fact processed and refined foods are anti-nutrients. They rob much-needed nutrients from our nutritional reserves. The SAD (standard American diet) is the biggest cause of disease and illness across our planet. Our diet has migrated across the globe and is now inflicting its participants with alarming rates of disease and illness.

It’s never to late to make your body healthier if you are willing to make the change. Many times disease and illness can even be reversed through a highly nutritious diet and being more physically active.

Vive is full of nutrition from plants that build healthy bodies. Vive supports healthy body functions. Making Vive a daily part of your diet can enrich your life by helping you build a healthy body with plenty of energy.
