At the present, there are various forms of stresses that the human body is subjected to, whether it be in the form of pollutants, toxins, as well as diseases. As people age, their bodies are not as resistant to these stresses. It can even be observed that the average life expectancy for both men and women today is significantly shorter than it was 20 years ago. Along with the aging process come changes in the normal mental performance and memory ability. For this reason, science continues to develop methods and provide newer info on how seniors of today can extend their lives and maintain their peak mental performance.
One of the best things to do to stay young and live longer is to exercise regularly. For seniors, any form of activity is beneficial, especially for keeping healthy circulation and maintaining the integrity of bones and muscles. In 2003, a New York study further stated that exercise can actually help boost your memory and mental performance. More solutions on aging and longevity can be explored at PATH medical.
Aside from these mentioned activities, one must get rid of bad habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol. Lastly, the body must be provided with the right diet as a source of energy, for regulation of the body systems, as well as for added resilience to diseases and injury.
