Even though we’re aware of the basics of aging healthily, we can’t stop the process. But we can slow it down. We can make sure our diet is healthy and that we get enough calcium and vitamin D. Good sources of calcium in your diet include dairy products, almonds, and vegetables such as broccoli and kale. It might also be a good idea to research some calcium supplements.
Vitamin D is vital to bone health because it helps the body absorb calcium and maintain bone strength.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who can get enough of this by spending good time in the sun, then you’re at an advantage, but you can also get it from tuna, sardines, egg yolks, and fortified foods such as milk and many cereals.
Did you know that drinking water is linked to possibly living a longer life? According to experts, decreased body water content is the most common factor that increases serum sodium, which is why the results suggest that staying well-hydrated may slow down the aging process and prevent or delay chronic disease!
Always discuss supplements with your healthcare professional as you don’t want to cause complications with any medications you may be on.
Above all, Enjoy life, look after yourself, look after your mental health and keep on top of your visits with your GP. Aging healthily is easily achieved.
