Look Younger Live Longer

Researchers the world over are desperately trying for an anti-aging formula so as to increase the longevity of human beings or at least to slow down the aging process.

What is aging?

Have you ever seen an iron rod, iron gate or grill without enamel paint - subjected to the sun, air, and rain? It gets rusted over a period of time. In scientific language this process of rusting due to normal or bad weather conditions is called oxidation process and quantum of rusting depends upon the time factor and weather conditions - the iron articles are subjected to. Longer the time and tougher the weather conditions - more the rusting - decreasing the life span of Iron articles. How do we save our iron gates, grills from rusting? Obviously by first removing dust from these articles and coating it with a layer of Red Oxide. Thereafter we apply enamel paint on these articles to save it from rusting that is oxidation to increase their longevity.
Similarly is the human body. The human body also gets oxidized and this oxidation process of the body is called aging. How can we stop or slow down this oxidation or so-called aging process? It is very difficult to stop this process. However, it can be slow down the aging process. As in case of oxidation of iron articles we needed red oxide and enamel paint -we require strong immunity and antioxidants to boost the immunity. To achieve our goal we as parents resort to immunizing our children to protect them from viruses, diseases. Intelligent mothers breastfeed their babies to build up a strong immunity to fight against infections, viruses, and diseases. Mother's breast milk works in the same way as red oxide layer works on the iron articles. Now comes the role of the time factor and weather conditions. Normal wear and tear are obvious with the passing time but we can protect the body from adverse weather condition by taking umbrella:). Level of the pollution in the air, water, cereals, fruits and vegetables, drug abuse, smoking, drinking, unhygienic living - all taken together or singly have the potential to accelerate the oxidation or as we call it as the aging process of the body. Building a strong layer of immunity is one aspect and boosting immunity is another task.

How can we boost our Immunity:

As iron articles required enamel paint to increase the life span - similarly the human body also needs antioxidants to revive, build up and boost immunity or bodily resistance to fight infections, viruses and diseases and in turn to increase the longevity of human life or you may call it slow down the aging process. I will be discussing the availability of major antioxidants (in plenty) in dietary foods in my Hubs at HubPages. The main antioxidants are Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin B, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene and above breathing in pure air/oxygen to increase the oxygen level in the body. While discussing the availability of Immunity Boosters we will also be discussing the daily recommended quantity of antioxidants as higher doses are sometimes as harmful as deficiency of these antioxidants.

Oxygen Chambers

Now in metro cities craze of Oxygen Chambers is gaining momentum where one can have pure oxygen to rejuvenate and fine tune the body by taking rid of toxin gases inhaled during normal work up. 10 to 15 minutes once or twice a week can make you look younger and live longer as the oxygen is the basic lifeline of the human body. Today we are inhaling poisonous fumes from Inverter Batteries emitting Lead Fumes which are carcinogenic and during the winter season we inhale poisonous gasses like Carbon Mono oxide, which is also emitted by the polluting vehicles and can be fatal. I am sure that in addition to saloons, Spa Centers - the new clinics known as Oxygen Chambers will be in great demand at urban centers when the physicians will be prescribing at least one or two sessions of pollution-free breathing inside the oxygen chambers to slow down the aging and wrinkle process which is set in motion by the toxin substances especially emissions.
