The Anti Aging Secrets Of Assisted Community Living Seniors

Ever since the beginning of modern science, researchers have been searching for a miracle that reverses the aging process, to makes us look younger and live longer. Much to the general public’s dismay and contrary to all the marketing gimmicks, there are no miracle drugs that can reverse all of the effects of aging. For the most part, these marketing ploys are scams. Many assisted community living residents do not realize that aging is not caused by just one factor within their body. It happens due to a complex range of issues all acting together that causes us to age. Because aging is so complex and is very much an individual process, there is no one simple formula to the anti-aging process.

Ultimately, the only way to fight aging is to approach the issue from multiple fronts and different perspectives. This requires approaching the subject on a case-by-case basis. People need to forget about the concept of a magic pill and embrace their aging process realistically. This philosophy is followed by most of the Assisted Community Living seniors. Assisted community living centers incorporate exercise activities and proper nutrition for their residents. Although many don’t like to admit it, exercise and proper nutrition can fight aging. Assisted community living centers provide their seniors with anti oxidant rich meals and other healthy options to reduce the effects of aging.

Omega 3 fatty acids act like lubricators of the body. They prevent us from overheating, and essentially extend the lifetime of our cells, organs, and joints. They strengthen cell walls, boost cognitive functioning, and contribute to the smooth functioning of the cells in our nervous system. To make healthy fatty acids a part of your diet consume plenty of fish, especially salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies and sardines. Other sources of omega 3 fatty acids include chia seeds, flaxseed, soybeans, vegetable oils and egg whites.

Cell damage is the culprit for many of the external and aesthetic effects of aging. Some of this cell damage is a natural result of aging, but a great deal of it comes from environmental factors that we allow ourselves to be exposed to. The sun and air pollution are two examples of environmental factors that increase the aging process. When these outside influences are absorbed by your cells, it causes little molecules known as free radicals to develop and initiate the process of cell damage. Anti oxidants, which are found in a wide variety of foods, help destroy these free radicals and clear them out of the cells. Some foods that are the best sources of antioxidants include blueberries, cranberries, grapes, dark chocolate, carrots, whole grains, green tea, and red wine. Assisted Community Living centers find ways of introducing these anti oxidant sources and at the same time keep in mind each patient’s medical requirements.
