Avoid Inflammation with Turmeric
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effect, turmeric may help to reduce inflammation and pain. Its active ingredient curcumin is one of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs that keeps inflammation down and the immune system healthy. Curcumin has a protective effect on the liver and also has the ability to suppress free radicals that can cause mutation in our DNA. According to research, Curcumin may prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease since it blocks the formation of beta-amyloid. This substance is responsible for the plaques that slowly inhibit cerebral function in this serious disorder.
Probiotics hold the key for good digestion, better health and a stronger immune system. Science discovered the role of probiotics also in ageing and longevity. For optimal gut flora, eat fermented food such as yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut and use probiotic supplements.
Proper Sun Protection
Sun is one of nature’s most healing agents. It destroys bacteria and helps prevent infections. Your body is able to produce its own vitamin D from direct sunlight. Although moderate, unprotected sun exposure is essential for good health, using proper sunscreen is advised to avoid sun damage and premature ageing.
Those who have a rich social life are also healthier, more active, and longer-lived than their less sociable mates. We need friends we can talk to without being misunderstood or criticized. In the smallest circle, we have our family and closest friends. How peaceful is that microcosm of society? As human beings, we are responsible for ourselves. Surrounding yourself with positive people can boost your mood, health and productivity. That leads to longevity.
Love and be loved!
