Aging is a natural phase of one’s life that occurs to all individuals.It is, therefore, important to prepare ourselves to deal with its effects. However, not all people are informed on how to deal with it. As we continue growing older, there are two things that happen biologically to our bodies that tend to increase the rate of aging. The rate of cell destruction commonly caused by physical agents and immune-mediated causes gradually increases. Worse still, your natural capacity to repair the damage caused to the cells is hampered by the already weak detoxification system of the body. This, therefore, means that the older you become, the higher the damages accumulate to your cells thereby speeding the aging process. Ideally, if we took good care of ourselves, we would end up increasing the chances of living longer. Below are the secrets to helping you grow old gracefully.
