Does blowing out your birthday candles each year give you anxiety? A lot of us worry about ageing, but we shouldn’t. Not only is it a natural part of living, it’s also partially within our control. There are lifestyle changes we can make and supplements we can try to keep the signs of premature ageing at bay. Here are our top tips to avoid premature ageing.
What is premature ageing?
First, let’s look at what we mean by ‘premature’ ageing. Ageing is a natural process that we’ll all go through at some point. As our bodies age, they lose the ability to repair and regenerate which leads to wrinkles, sunspots and greying hair. Depending on your genetics and lifestyle, you may avoid the signs of ageing for some time. Or you may find they appear earlier than expected – which is when we refer to it as premature ageing. So, if you’re finding the signs of ageing creep up on you early; what can you do about it?
A daily dose of collagen
There is growing research on the potential of collagen to support our body in maintaining its youthful appearance. Packed full of protein, collagen is an essential element to our body’s ability to hold its skin shape and elasticity. Some of the benefits that you may experience with a daily collagen supplement include:
- Reduced sagging of the skin
- Improvements to fine lines or wrinkles
- Plumper skin
- A reduction in hair loss
The NutraViva range of collagen and gelatin are a simple option for adding a daily dose of collagen to your diet. With over 60% bioavailability in both products, they’re easily absorbed by the body so that you get the full effect.
Eliminating bad habits
None of us are perfect and we’re not here to judge your bad habits. But there are a few which are known to increase the signs of ageing. Where possible, cutting them out is likely to do wonders for your appearance. Classic age-inducing habits include smoking, excess sun exposure, lack of sleep, and too much stress. All of these put your body under strain which might be why it’s ageing before its’ time.
