Skin Aging

By on October 8, 2014

The term ‘inflamm-aging’ is used to characterize a widely accepted theory that aging is accompanied by a low- grade inflammatory response. It is the most widely accepted theory of aging amongst scientists today.

Although our bodies use inflammation as a natural defense mechanism against infection or injury, problems arise when harmful internal cellular damage consistently assail our bodies. The body, in turn, is in a state of perpetual inflammation, which speeds up the aging process. This is called Inflamm-Aging.

Inflammation touches every aspect of our health. Scientists have determined beyond doubt that inflammation is linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other chronic, degenerative causes. Understanding inflammation is crucial if we are going to positively impact our health, our waist size and how we age.
So what causes inflammation? Here are just a few of them:

Emotional Stress.
The stress we feel as a byproduct of living
Physical Inactivity.
Our sedentary lives are catching up with us.
Sleep Deprivation
Inadequate sleep makes you more than
just tired.
Refined Sugar:
But it tastes so good!
One more reason to shed some pounds.
