Moringa and Anti-Ageing
Can Moringa help my skin looking young?
The short answer is yes and it is due to all the nutrients found in Moringa leaves.
For generations mankind has been looking for the secrets to looking young, whilst our genetic makeup has a lot to do with how our body ages, there are things you can do to help yourself. Don't waste money on expensive unproven chemicals made in a lab, for which, as most people know, there is little or no proof that any of them work as claimed.
How can Moringa help? As you have already started to discover Moringa is high in nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants! It is a natural food which can supplement your which can enhance your diet and crucially give you more of what your body needs to stay young.
As we get older, our cells regenerate less and at a slower rate. Our bodies also produce less collagen and elastin which are the two most important elements of firm skin. The anti-oxidant cystine, found in in Moringa Oleifera stop free radicals, whilst the proteins accelerate the re-growth of new cells. Furthermore, the vitamin A in Moringa assists in the production of collagen and elastin, helping firm your skin and rid it of wrinkles and other skin defects. In short, the nutrients which are found in Moringa, can help to keep your skin healthy and fit. Clearly it won't turn back the clock but as part of a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet it will make a real difference to your health.
Our Moringa is a natural food supplement, 100% organically farmed and grown from organic seeds. (Many cheaper suppliers grow from GM seeds without declaring it!) Therefore you know that every gram of our Moringa is pure and provides some of the vitamins and nutrients you need to stay looking young.
Below is a table of what is found in our Moringa and why it will help you to keep looking young as part of a healthy lifestyle. The second part of the table helpfully tells you what else you need but not found in Moringa.
Found in Moringa
- Scientific research has found that telomere length is positively associated with dietary intake of vitamin A in women. Not only does vitamin A boost your immune system if you are deficient, you can become predisposed to infections that can promote telomere shortening. The shortening of your DNA's telomere is associated with ageing and cancer.
- Research show that people who posses omega-3 index of less than four percent age faster than those with indexes above eight percent. Therefore, your omega-3 index may also be an effective marker of your rate of ageing. One of the central anti-ageing theories relating to telomeres is to try to activate the enzyme telomerase, to actually increase the telomeres' length and essentially reverse ageing, and omega-3 fats appear to play a role in activating this enzyme.
- Vitamin B12 is sometimes called "the energy vitamin," it is required by your body for several vital functions. Including energy production, DNA, blood formation, DNA synthesis, and myelin formation.
- Magnesium is also thought to influence telomere length by affecting DNA integrity and repair.
Not Found in Moringa
- People with higher levels of vitamin D are more likely to have longer telomeres, meaning they will age more slowly than people with lower levels of vitamin D.
- Astaxanthin has emerged as one of the most potent and beneficial antioxidants currently known, with potent anti-inflammatory and telomere DNA-protective capabilities.
- A lack of CoQ10, also known as Ubiquinol, can cause premature aging and increase DNA damage, because this essential vitamin recycles other antioxidants, specifically vitamin C and E. Ubiquinol benefits the heart health and muscle function but depletion leads to fatigue, muscle weakness, soreness and eventually heart failure.
Probiotics (fermented vegetables)
- Processed foods are bad for you,they are high in sugar and other chemicals, effectively destroy your intestinal microflora. Your gut flora has immense power over your immune system, eating processed foods damages your body's natural defence systems increasing your susceptibility to illness and premature ageing. You should consume traditionally cultured and fermented foods a staple in your daily diet, in order to optimise your gut flora. Fermented vegetables are an excellent alternative.
- Polyphenols are potent antioxidant compounds found in plants, which have been linked to anti-ageing benefits.
- Plasma concentrations of the B vitamin folate corresponds to telomere length, and folate plays an important role in the maintenance of DNA integrity and DNA methylation, both of which influence the length of your telomeres.
- Consuming more vitamin K2 offers protection against for cardiovascular health and prevention of cancer, research suggest vitamin K2 can provide substantial protection from prostate cancer.
What else contributes towards reducing the effects of ageing? A healthy lifestyle
Exercise - Increasing your blood circulation will allow the distribution of essential nutrients to your skin
Eat plenty fresh fruit and vegetables - We are now told to take "7 a day" whilst this is to prevent health problems and prolong life, the vitamins and proteins will help your school look younger
Not smoking - smoking clogs up your system and reduces blood flow, there is plenty of information out there already!
Reduce alcohol consumption - Alcohol can cause premature wrinkles, loss of collagen, elasticity, redness, dehydration and puffiness
Avoiding pollution - Pollution in the air damages our circulatory system and reduce oxygen distribution to the body, your skin does not like pollution!
Avoid processed foods - eat fresh organic foods.
Reducing stress levels
Limiting exposure to the Sun - Too much UV light cause the skin to age and sun burn is known to cause skin cancer.
