An Anti-aging Folk Remedy
Aging is a natural process we all go through. Some people want to grow old gracefully. Some would prefer to stay young as long as possible, as hard as that is to do.
So, what happens when we age? For starters, your skin gets thinner and less elastic. Have you ever noticed the paper-thin skin on some very elderly people? That will be you, or me, if we live long enough.
Bones and muscles become weaker. Things we were able to do in our younger days become harder or are out of our reach as we begin to slow down. Osteoporosis is a mostly a disease of the elderly.
I forgot the rest. No, just kidding. As we age our memory worsens also.
Our immune system weakens, making it harder for our bodies to fight of diseases.
We would all like to slow the aging process. In our 20s and 30s we probably don’t think about it too much. We’re young, we’re active. We’re enjoying life. But the more years we have under our belts, the more we start to feel, and think about, the aches and pains of getting older. Many of us start to look for products to help us look and feel young for as long as we can.
Are there anti-aging products out there that really help?
Is there an anti-aging folk remedy available? Here are some fruits that have been shown to have anti-aging properties.
Have you ever heard of Noni? Noni fruit comes from the mulberry plant of the South Pacific Islands of Tahiti and Hawaii. Noni has been used in folk remedies by Polynesians for over 2,000 years and is reported to have a broad range of health benefits.
Noni (which means “longevity”) is known as a balancing agent that helps stabilize and enhance the health of the body. The noni plant was considered vital to ancient settlers and was one of the four basic plants that they brought with them in canoes as they colonized new islands.
Today, millions across the world are discovering the health-enhancing properties of this once hidden island secret.
One of the most important components of the noni fruit is proxeronine, a natural ingredient, which is a building block essential to human cell growth.
Another fruit with anti-aging properties is the Acai berry. These berries are the product of an Amazon River basin palm tree. The berries are a dark purple, and have a thin layer of edible pulp around the seed. Anthocyanin, a group of flavonoids found it Acai, is a very well known antioxidant, and fruits rich in this antioxidant have been shown to have anti-aging properties.
Acai also has naturally occurring vitamins B and E, and the minerals iron and calcium. They also have an extremely high amount of antioxidants.
Wine drinkers of the world, rejoice!
One of the compounds produced by grapes, primarily in the seeds and skin, is called Resveratrol. This compound made headlines in November of 2006 when scientists demonstrated that it kept overfed mice from gaining weight and turned them into the equivalent of olympic athletes. It also seemed to slow down their aging process.
Very few medical discoveries have generated such an instant buzz. Scientists became interested in exploring the potential health benefits of resveratrol when its presence was discovered in red wine, leading to speculation that resveratrol might help explain the “French Red Wine Paradox.” The French have lower mortality rates and a lower incidence of coronary disease.
The benefits of drinking red wine have been recognized by the American Heart Association who now recommend one to two glasses per day for men and one glass per day for women. Obviously the alcohol content of wine does have its drawbacks (impairs brain function, can’t be combined with many medications, children and pregnant women can’t drink it and long-term use may harm the liver.)
As I mentioned in a previous post, Goji berries also contain anti-aging properties. The powerful polysaccharides in goji berries, which have the anti-aging properties, also help with learning and memory., something that seems to come harder to us as we grow older. Goji berries are native to the Far East and are delicious bright red berries.
The mangosteen fruit has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years for its health-enhancing properties. When Queen Victoria tasted this imported delicacy in the mid-1800s she promptly declared it to be her favorite fruit. Since then mangosteen has been commonly referred to as “The Queen of Fruits.”
Centuries later, science has finally corroborated what folklore medicine has known for centuries. Mangosteen works!
The key ingredient in mangosteen is called xanthone, a natural molecular substance that has recently won high praise from numerous scientists and researchers. What’s remarkable is that the mangosteen represents the single greatest known supply of these tremendously beneficial xanthones
Despite the fact that mangosteen has only recently been discovered in the West, there have already been literally hundreds of research papers and studies conducted on mangosteen and xanthones throughout the world.
Where can you find these health enhancing fruits?
Can you run down to your local grocery store and pick up some mangosteen? Or some goji, or none? Perhaps some of these supplements can be found in a grocery store. More likely a specialty health food store like Sprouts would have some of these fruit available as a supplement. Maybe, but probably not, the fruits themselves.
You owe it to yourself to take a look at some of these supplements.
