The aging process is inevitable for every person. Aging cannot be avoided because it is a natural phenomenon. But you can slow it down and delay it if you know when the body begins to age.
Why is old age coming
The human body is aging because its organs are aging. And organ aging is caused by cell aging. Although the fact is known that cells in the human body are constantly renewed - old ones die, new ones appear. But the body is getting old anyway. This is due to the fact that in the course of life, cells are damaged for many reasons. And damaged cells cannot produce new healthy cells. Therefore, over time, the body accumulates more and more cells with various damages. And when a large number of them accumulate, they slow down the processes of the appearance of new cells. That is why a person grows old earlier than nature intended.
Scientists believe that, in theory, the human body can live up to 150 years. But in practice, a person does not live so much, because his body wears out much earlier, and this is due to a number of reasons.
Factors leading to physiological aging
How quickly and early a person grows old depends on heredity, in what environment he lives, what kind of life he leads, what he eats.
Modern man leads a sedentary lifestyle, and the human body needs physical activity. Otherwise, the circulatory system does not work as expected, which over time leads to diseases of various organs.
Few people at a young age think about what foods they eat. But it is very important to eat a balanced diet and include antioxidants in the diet, which successfully fight free radicals. Free radicals are the number one enemy of youth. are molecules that are deprived of an electron, so they are trying to take it away from some other molecule.
Smoking, alcohol, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, stress does not contribute to the rejuvenation of the body.
Of course, a polluted environment also causes aging. The radioactive background, in which it is constantly, has a detrimental effect on the cells of the human body. Visiting the metro, where everything is lined with granite slabs, a person receives a considerable dose of radiation. Asphalt emits radioactive particles, and there is also radiation in drinking water and plants.
At what age does old age come?
It is difficult to define clear boundaries of old age. After all, this is not only a physiological process, but also a psychological one. Much depends on how emotionally the person is.
There is an opinion that old age occurs when desires cease to fill and please, when there is nowhere and nothing to strive for. Some people visit this state at the age of 80, while others feel the same at the age of 30.
How soon a person feels old is determined by various factors: his social environment, profession, the presence of children, the level of intelligence development.
Prevention of old age can and should be carried out starting from youth. To do this, you should lead an active lifestyle, eat right, take care of your face and body. But the most important thing is to feel young. And for this you need to believe in the best, love, plan for the future, develop mental abilities, more often find a reason to smile. When the soul is young, it cannot be hidden. The whole appearance will radiate this youth, and no one will believe what is written in the passport.
