Methods of Anti-ageing

Exercise & Nutrition -
Much of anti-ageing methods have been concerned with a proper healthy diet and a physical exercise program. Avoidance of life threatening hazards such as smoking and excessive eating of sugar and fat containing foods has also been greatly published and therefore is practiced by many.
Physical exercise is considered important for maintaining physical fitness including healthy weight; building and maintaining healthy bones, muscles, and joints; promoting physiological well-being; reducing surgical risks; and strengthening the immune system.

Proper nutrition is just as, if not more, important to health as exercise. When exercising it becomes even more important to have good diet to ensure the body has the correct ratio of macronutrients whilst providing ample micronutrients; this is to aid the body with the recovery process following strenuous exercise. When the body falls short of proper nutrition, it gets into starvation mode developed through evolution and depends onto fat content for survival. Proper rest and recovery is also as important to health as exercise, otherwise the body exists in a permanently injured state and will not improve or adapt adequately to the exercise.

*Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) –
which aims at restoring youthful levels of growth hormone, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, DHEA and thyroid (all of which decline with age) – has also been tried as means of reducing the effects of ageing. But sadly there are certain contraindications ( also known as side-effects ) associated with HRT. Some of the common ones are severe liver disease, migraine headaches, coronary artery disease, venous thrombosis, fibroids and the risk of breast cancer.
Dependency on HRT may be effective during treatment, however will loose its effects when discontinued. This can be dangerous as it affects the natural balance of the endocrine system.

*Anti-Oxidant therapyThe idea that antioxidant supplements, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lipoic acid and selenium, might extend human life stems from the free radical theory of ageing. By destroying free radicals and reducing cellular damage, antioxidants, as a group, can:
Promote eye health and prevent macular degeneration, cataracts, and other degenerative eye diseases.
Keep the immune system in good shape, or boost the immune system when it has been compromised.
Prevent age-related neurodegeneration such as decline of the brain and nervous system.
Prevent DNA damage and therefore have anticarcinogenic effects.
Have antiatherogenic effects; that is, promote cardiovascular health and help prevent atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular diseases. Antioxidants can decrease LDL and cholesterol, increase high density lipoprotein (HDL), and lower blood pressure. The mechanisms behind these effects are not fully understood, and can occur even if the person has a diet high in saturated fat.

*Cellular Therapy – Cell Regeneration

When we advance in age and grow older, our bodies go through a continuous process of change in terms of our cells. These cells are constantly dying and being continuous replaced by new ones during the cell division process. At such, factors such as stress, disease and premature ageing resulted in a further decrease of cell
increase in cell death. So, when the quality of new cells being reproduced decline, the deficiency of the organ of which they are a part of begins to decline too. Thereby causing cell degeneration in the nervous, digestive and the endocrine systems in our bodies thus, ageing.
Rejuvenation is the procedure of reversing the ageing process, thus regaining youth. As mentioned earlier, as we get older, our health worsens, strength and intelligence diminishes and beauty is rapidly disappearing. Historically, people in all societies have looked for a way to regain the qualities of youth.

Currently, the newly and most widely recognized method of rejuvenation and extending maximum lifespan is cellular therapy. Which means, extension of maximum lifespan can be achieved by reducing the rate of ageing damage, by periodic replacement of damaged tissues, or by molecular repair or rejuvenation of deteriorated cells and tissues.
Scientists and researchers seek to understand the nature of ageing and they develop treatments to reverse aging processes or to at least slow them down, for the improvement of health and the maintenance of youthful vigor at every stage of life. The primary life extension strategy currently is to apply available anti-aging methods in the hope of living a longer, healthier and quality life.
Many biomedical experts believe that future breakthroughs in tissue rejuvenation with cellular therapy, cell transplantation, cell replacement and molecular repair will eliminate all aging and disease as well as allow for complete rejuvenation to a youthful condition.
Zell-v Sheep Placenta :
-an opportunity to reduce cell degeneration caused by malfunction of specific cell types and the body’s failure to replace or restore cells.
-starts with the selection of fresh placenta from animal bred specifically for this purpose. Numerous years of experience have shown that sheep are the best donor animals because they are vital, hardy animals with strong immune systems and natural disease resistance. In addition, sheep proteins are particularly compatible with the human body and trigger no immune reactions.
- are all extracted fresh, with the big molecular fat, protein, hormones and blood removed. They are further filtered to remove damaged weak cells and then cultivated by Cell Culture with the end results of active cells separated and purified. They are thus very pure and do not contain any other unnecessary ingredients.
The proven theory states that sheep cells circulate from the site of absorption until they recognize and congregate at the human counterpart organ. For example, liver cells go to the liver, sex cells go to the sexual organs and heart cells go the heart and etc. This natural principle of cells going “home” to its corresponding organ and gland is called the Homing Principle.
These young organ specific cells, but not species specific, imprint their vigor upon old, tired and degenerating cells, stimulating them to function with renewed efficiency – Cell Regeneration. As a result, the organ itself then regains its vigor and vitality, functioning at its optimum level.
