Anti Ageing Peptides
Why Anti-Ageing Peptides?
We are realising that the symptoms often attributed to ageing could merely be a symptom of hormonal deficiency. Dependent on diet, lifestyle choices and environment, some people age prematurely, whilst others more gracefully.
Regardless, by the time we all get to around 30 years of age, there is one fact which is commonplace in our life of being human and that is the decline of our most important hormone for the maintenance of health and wellbeing and that is Growth Hormone.
The Benefits of Anti-Ageing Peptides
- It is now more important than ever to ensure your sleep quality is optimised. Sleep deprivation leads to increases in visceral fat storage, and minimises the regeneration that is meant to occur in deep sleep. Sleep loss affects natural GH stimulation and muscle hypertrophy.
- Be sure to include supplementation where necessary. There are various vitamins, minerals, amino acids that offer substantial benefits to your health as you age. These supplements taken should be free of harmful fillers and additives. Do your research before taking any supplement.
- Most of us, as we approach midlife, will have several hormones that are imbalanced. What this means is the signalling that typically occurs during our youth is stunted. In order to function optimally, these hormones need to be corrected. By taking a proactive approach to anti-ageing, we have it in our power to slow down premature ageing, prevent the onset of certain diseases and live a quality life. Peptides are now considered a viable anti-ageing treatment that has the potential to restore the body to a youthful and regenerative state.
Tips to Prevent Premature Ageing
Numerous factors affect whether or not we will age gracefully, many of which we have total control over.
- Exercise (especially heavy weight lifting) will retard the loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) and bone (osteopenia) and maintain muscle and bone strength.
Diet and Nutrition
- Promotion of normal digestive processes â€“ gut flora balance + proper elimination.
- The second phase of detoxification â€“ repair gut barrier function, stimulate and support liver detoxification pathways, eliminate potential allergenic dietary factors.
- High blood glucose is closely associated with rapid tissue ageing and chronic disease progression.
- Minimise foods that areÂ pro-inflammatory in the diet. This includes saturated fats (meats, poultry, dairy), sugar, and refined and processed foods. If you are a patient that is sensitive to antibiotics then only eat organic meats so you canÂ avoid antibiotic residues.
- ChooseÂ foods that are high in essential omega 3 fatty acids like oily fish, seeds and nuts.
- Eat a minimally processed diet rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients and bioflavonoids.
- Protein is essential for connective tissue support, and should be consumed during each meal.
- Nutrients to support digestive health including fibre should be consumed.
- Minimise intake of caffeine, alcohol and salt.
Stress Levels, Lifestyle and Relaxation
- Stress management techniques should be implemented.
- Smoking cessation is the highest priority in patients who are currently smoking
