New research is helping ordinary Americans take control of their health. It's easier than you think to live healthy as you age. 


Despite the hype about anti-aging solutions, we know there's no fountain of youth. However, we also know that there are things we can do to live young as we age, such as exercising, eating well and taking supplements. Unstable molecules in your body called free radicals cause a condition called oxidative stress, which is associated with more than 100 diseases, according to published studies. Each of the millions of cells in your body is assaulted by free radicals more than 10,000 times each day, causing cell damage and cellular aging. 





Changing your diet alone isn't enough. Free radicals are a natural by-product of your body's normal metabolism of food to create energy. Additionally, while conventional antioxidants such as vitamins C and E are important for many nutritional reasons, studies show they do not eliminate age-related stress when consumed in the quantities generally recommended. A product from the newBiomed Collection of pH Balance Skincare was launched to target aging: BioMed Vitamin C Moisturizer &BioMed Retinol Complex.


 

Oxidative stress is made worse by exposure to such things as tobacco smoke, alcohol, insecticides, chlorine, and even excessive sunlight. Elevated oxidative stress is associated with heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's and cancer, among others, according to published research. The human body produces its own antioxidant enzymes to fight free radicals and support cellular health.


A proper diet, exercise and skincare routine combination has been shown to significantly reduce early and premature signs of aging.
