Anti Aging Pills - What You Should Know Before You Take Them - Articles Surfing
Humans today are a pill-popping species.
Aches and pains?
Caught a cold?
See lines appearing on your face?
But can anti aging pills. Give you a wrinkle free face?
What causes wrinkles in the first place?
A baby's skin is soft and supple. When you are young, your skin is firm and supple due to its rich moisture stores and collagen which supports your skin is plentiful. Healthy skin is made of 70% water, 25% protein (namely collagen and elastin) and 2% lipids. That means for skin to be healthy and young looking, your body needs sufficient water, collagen, elastin and fat.
As you grow older, your body produces less collagen, leading to less support for your skin. Skin loses its firmness and wrinkles form. Exposure to the sun's UV light causes collagen to breakdown more quickly, speeding the appearance of wrinkles.
Undereye wrinkles could also be due to the rough handling of the skin around your eyes when you put on or remove makeup. Smoking speeds up the appearance of lip wrinkles, from the way a smoker take a puff. Not to mention the multiple aging effects cigarette smoke has on the body.
Actually, the best antiaging thing you could do for yourself is to quit smoking and to wear sunscreen all day long.
So where do antiaging supplements. How do they work?
Health supplements work by supplying the body with the nutrients it lacks.
Antiaging food are foods that are rich in antioxidants and which contain healthy oils. Likewise, antiaging supplements include antioxidant pills and omega 3 oils. Antiaging supplements that are based on antioxidants fight agint by providing the body with the antioxidants necessary to neutralize those aging free radicals.
Omega 3 supplements or fish oil supplements provide your skin with the oil it needs. Without sufficient good fats, skin gets dry and ages more quickly. On top of that, supple skin needs moisture and moisture is kept from evaporating away by that thin layer of sebum on the skin. That helps relieve inflammatory age related diseases like arthritis, which is basically, joint inflammation.
Another popular anti-aging supplement is based on the age reversing effect of growth hormones. That is where Human Growth Hormone supplements come into play. They don't necessarily contain human growth hormones. The popular ones contain precursors to HGH which can boost your body's natural production of HGH, which reverses some of the signs of aging.
There are many herbs and foods that help reduce the effect of aging, and even more anti aging supplements based on the nutrients found in these foods and herbs.
If your body is lacking in any of these nutrients, such an antiaging pill that contains the nutrients you need would help you slow down or even reverse premature aging.
Still, there is no real fountain of youth. The best you can do is to keep your body as healthy as possible for as long as you can and to age gracefully.
