can health, diet and lifestyle changes slow down ageing?

So, what is ageing exactly? Ageing is a process of accumulation of cellular damage over time, leading to impaired function of tissues and organs and, eventually, causing death. There are a number of cellular processes contributing to ageing, a characteristic that they have in common is “inflammageing”. It is a combination of “inflammation” and “ageing” and it describes exactly that: a low-grade chronic inflammation that settles in as we age, causing cellular dysfunction and destruction. Addressing chronic inflammation is the key for extending our health span as well as lifespan. Let’s take a look at the key cellular mechanisms of ageing. 1. Extra-cellular protein cross-links As we age, our cells create too many connections between proteins outside of their surface, causing tissues to become more rigid, lose elasticity causing wrinkles and arteriosclerosis. These cross-links…

the power of good nutrition when it comes to immune health

“Vitamin D deficiency is already known for its association with lung and respiratory tract infections. As such it is worth checking your vitamin D levels.” As doctors and scientists do their best to understand the disease better, research from early cases suggests that health and nutrition plays a vital role in the onset and severity of the disease. Who is more at risk of COVID-19? COVID-19 is a disease caused by a virus called the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which causes a cough, shortness of breath and in worsening cases breathing difficulties, pneumonia and sepsis. Research suggests that people who suffer from chronic diseases - such as diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease – are more prone to adverse effects from the virus. Focusing on building a healthy and robust immune system…

the power of tribes when it comes to your health goals

Our brains and bodies have been hardwired over millions of years to function in specific, and very efficient ways. Tapping into this is powerful because we’re able to work with how our bodies naturally function as opposed to fighting against it, making achieving our aims all that more realistic and effortless. A great example is the current dietary trend of fasting. Fast-track your goals with fasting Fasting involves shifting when (but not necessarily what) we normally eat; it’s essentially a pattern that involves eating plenty most of the time, but punctuating this with intervals of eating very little. This complements human evolution; we have evolved to function without food for extended periods because food wasn’t always available to our ancestors (Mattson et al. 2017). “Another key part of our evolution being studied by…
