Aging occurs over time and it is also influenced by environmental exposure, the food we eat, stress from inside and outside the body. Aging occurs in a complex manner even at the cellular and molecular levels. Aging is a sure thing. Aging is the biggest risk factor for most of the diseases that affect us as adults, the older we get, the higher our risk of chronic disease. Although scientists have yet to find a way to stop this aging process, they can still learn more about how to maintain health throughout our lives.
Some aspects of aging are beyond our control, such as our genetics and family history, but we can educate ourselves about moderate risk factors and do our best for healthy lifestyle and dietary choices.
Most of us can be healthy and well active in later years, if we take care of ourselves. It’s no surprise that regular physical activity can help promote healthy weight, mood and sleep habits, and improve overall health. And it is clear that a fully balanced diet or nutritious diet is essential for good health. But when it comes to understanding which foods are the best choices, much nutritional research focuses on how certain foods or nutrients can negatively impact health, or even play a role in the development of disease.
Recently, scientists have begun to explore and understand how nutrition can play a role in promoting healthy aging across all stages of life.
The plant pigments found in bright orange and red fruits and vegetables can prevent it and slow the progression of eye disease.
- Calcium helps keep bones strong.

By paying attention to the nutritional intake we eat, exercising regularly, a happy mood, and good sleep habits will improve health and prevent premature aging.
