The Quest For Youth - Articles Surfing
The search for the Fountain of Youth can be traced back from early times to the present day. This legendary spring supposedly restored the youth of anyone who drinks from it. It is said to be located in Florida and stories of the fountain are most persistent in this state.
History tells us that ancient Egyptian women washed in sour milk and fruit-based baths to improve their skin while French women in the court of Louis XIV relied on wine and honey.
In today's world, women still use these old treatments and many others to help fight those dreaded lines that come with aging. Anti-aging products boast of miracle effects overnight but in reality getting rid of wrinkles will take as much time as it took for you to develop them. Fortunately, there is help for us.
The quest for looking young has turned anti-aging medicine into a multi-billion dollar industry. All of a sudden longevity clinics are popping up all over the country and Internet advertisements for miracle cures constantly bombard your inbox.
Did you know that miracle waters, magnets, and light emitting devices are being advertised as anti-aging products? Some believe that special waters have anti-aging properties. Ever heard of the high-tech sounding "clustered waters" or "magnetized waters" and the so-called "miracle" waters from exotic locations where people are said to live long, blessed lives? These products promise everything from pain relief to a long life in a state of perpetual youth!
Of course, it's important to drink water. Researchers agree that water is vital for life but there is no scientific evidence that water from places where people tend to live longer lives, "magnetized" or manipulated water will offer any added anti-aging benefits over regular tap water.
If you think a magnet is just a toy, think again. Magnets come in all shapes in sizes and are placed in everything from mattress pads, toe rings, knee pads to face masks, and they all promise a myriad of benefits, including increasing one's lifespan. Magnets are said to activate life-promoting enzymes and encourage cell division, which supposedly slows down the aging process.
Sadly, there is no scientific evidence showing that magnets offer any measurable benefits on the human lifespan. So just let your children play with it or use it to hold your pins and needles.
So leave the water for drinking purposes, the magnet for your children's science project, and flashlight in case of power interruption. Instead switch to products that offer real benefits and will help you look young.
