Let’s be honest. We all want to look younger. Whether we care to admit this or not, we subconsciously go to great lengths to look our very best everyday.
For a very good reason. Our self confidence is naturally improved when we look our best. It makes us feel positive, happy and vibrant. It gives us more energy. Studies have even confirmed “looking younger” subconsciously forces other people to like us more.
Self confidence is a huge thing. When our confidence levels are lacking, it has crippling effects on all parts of our lives. If we’re married, we feel our husbands no longer find us attractive. If we’re single, we stop going on dates. It even turns some of us into complete home-bodies who are afraid to leave the house!
One of the leading causes of anxiety and depression is a lack of self confidence that stems directly from your aging appearance.
To counteract this, we go to extraordinary lengths, purchasing expensive skin care products such as creams, moisturisers and serums. We then spend even more going to skin care clinics getting laser treatments and *gasp* chemical peels. We also spend up big on makeup and lipstick. All in the pursuit of looking our best.
I need to let you in a secret:
To make long-lasting, positive and noticeable changes to your skin and appearance, you need to start thinking of beauty as an internal concept. And start treating it from within your body.
Repetitive Cellular damage
Wrinkles and fine lines
Dark circles under eyes
Puffy eyes and face
Acne, pimples and blackheads
Dry and flaking skin
Your healthspan is even more important than lifespan…
You may be asking, how is that possible? What could be more important than living longer?
Well, healthspan is the period of life where you’re healthy. If you are past your healthspan, it means you’re chronically sick. This often means you have a degenerative condition.
Humans are only capable of living to around 120 years old physically. We are a long way off from increasing that. So instead of focusing on increasing the time we live. We should be focusing on maximising the length and quality of our healthspan.
The average lifespan in Australia is 82.45 years. The World Health Organisation recently established a metric to measure the average healthspan called HALE. The average HALE is currently just 63.1 years.
The world’s healthspan is rapidly decreasing. People are getting chronic degenerative conditions now starting in their thirties and forties
This means that instead of spending your time with loved ones, travelling the world and doing the things you love—you spend time and money with visits to doctors, hospitals and pharmacies…
You also experience great frustration because you don’t have the energy you need to experience life to its fullest.
The inflammatory and degenerative disease culprits that are contributing to our declining healthspan are diabetes, cancer, alzheimer’s, heart disease and autoimmune diseases.
Vitamin C is actually an antioxidant. The baobab fruit is the world’s number one source of bioavailable Vitamin C when compared to all other fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce dark circles and under eye bags, reduces skin discolouration, speed up wound healing, keep the skin looking younger, improving skin moisture and hydration and reducing full-body inflammation. The high amount of this particular vitamin is why baobab is a wonderful anti aging food source. Vitamin C also helps the body form elastin and collagen . Vitamin C also improves circulation and plays an important role in helping the body absorb more nutrients.
Iron deficiency is one of the worlds most common nutritional disorders in women. The deficiency causes anemia, which occurs when the body has decreased levels of haemoglobin in red blood cells. These low levels hinder your body’s ability to access oxygen which leads to fatigue, shortness of breath and muscle weakness. Whilst baobab is high in iron, your body is not always able to absorb it. Baobab contains phenomenal levels of Vitamin C which is widely known to enhance the absorption of iron.
Baobab’s rich polyphenol content has been scientifically proven to reduce the glycemic response when consuming high-starch foods. The study found a significant reduction in the conversion of rapidly digestible starches from white bread into sugars in our blood when consuming this together with Baobab. This stabilising effect is of much interest as a potential for managing blood sugar levels. Baobabs rich fibre content also helps control blood sugar levels, which prevents any sudden fluctuations that may lead to feelings of fatigue, headaches, and, over the long-term, serious health conditions like diabetes.
Together with advanced and faster ageing, cell damage is also heavily responsible for diabetes, alzheimer’s and cataracts. Baobab is one of the world’s richest sources of antioxidants, which are important for overall health because they help delay, repair, or prevent the damage to our cells caused by free radicals. This cell damage can result in serious health conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cataracts.
Certain compounds found in papayas help you break down and utilise proteins properly. The most powerful enzyme found in papaya is Papain which has the ability to break apart the bonds between amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. This enzyme is very helpful for people with low stomach acid who have trouble digesting meat. It also turbocharges protein absorption once it has been digested. People with digestive disorders such as leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune disease and even constipation can benefit from adding papain into their diets.
There has been a lot of interest in papaya and its ability to help increase the amount of platelets in the blood. A study conducted found that those given papaya leaf extract had significantly higher platelet and red blood cell counts after 72 hours compared to those in the control group. Researchers believe that papaya extract may eventually be a treatment for people with blood disorders.
Since it can breakdown proteins, the digestive enzyme Papain may be able to attack the protective coating found on cancer cell walls which could prevent their growth. There is significant interest in this area of the cancer and diet connection and how enzymes like papain can be used in helping treat cancer. Beta-Carotone, Vitamin C and Fibre have all been linked to decreased risk in cancer. Fiber also acts to reduce the cancer-causing toxins in the digestive system.
Antioxidants fight harmful free radicals and prevent cell damage. They also protect you from several types of crippling chronic disease including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Studies have consistently shown that blueberries contain the highest total antioxidant capacity but also, one of the greatest varieties. This includes flavonoids, anthocyanins and phenols. A recent study even showed that participants supplementing with blueberry powder increased serum antioxidant status by 8.5% after just one hour.
Several studies now have shown the exciting effects of blueberries when it comes to weight loss. Blueberry powder has been shown to prevent obesity in subjects that were fed a high fat diet. Another study by the Cardiovascular Center and the Michigan Integrative Medicine Program showed that the intake of blueberry powder was linked a reduction in belly fat in obese subjects.
Many studies have now shown that blueberries improve memory, recall and cognition. A landmark study by the European Journal of Nutrition demonstrated significant cognitive improvement and immediate recall time in children compared to the placebo group.
Anthocyanins in blue blueberries have been reported to reduce the ultraviolet ray-induced skin photoaging effect as well as inhibiting collagen destruction and inflammation.
Anthocyanins are a type of flavonoid, a family of powerful antioxidants that fight the effects of aging and oxidative stress. They play a key role in fighting the damage caused by free radicals in your body which leads to numerous diseases and aging. Anthocyanins also help protect cells, vital organs and tissues from oxidative damage and stress. Research even indicates that anthocyanins have a positive impact on gut health when they interact with microflora. This can help decrease inflammatory markers associated with disease and support health hormone balance
When combined with Vitamin A, Carotenoids help prevent skin cancer and premature skin damage. Diets high in carotenoids help prevent UV light damage (which can lead to melanoma), wrinkles, scaling, follicular thickening of the skin, drying and aged-looking skin. Vitamin A also helps prevent keratinisation of the skin which is a process that causes your cells to lose their moisture and become very dry.
The concept of ‘good’ bacteria is central to the idea of postbiotics. By introducing prebiotics to our digestive systems, and by nurturing probiotic function, we are already taking steps to foster these good bacteria within our bodies. It is postbiotics which complete this cycle, and which provide further support and promotion to the formation of these all-important positive bacterial strains.
Beetroots are abundant in an antioxidant called alpha-lipoic acid which has been shown to lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity and prevent oxidative stress-induced changes in patients with diabetes. Scientists have stated that alpha-lipoic acid terminates free radicals and increases vitamin C and cytosolic glutathione, thus preventing toxins that have the powder to destroy the health cells in your body.
Beetroot increase the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood and has also been found to reduce the amount of oxygen that muscles require in order to function optimally. Three studies have consistently shown beetroots ability to improve athletic performance in time trials, weight lifting and runners and enhance blood flow because it’s abundant in nitrites. The precursor to the powerful physical performance enhancer, nitric oxide.
Striking research from the Department of Pharmacology reveals one of the most powerful biological activities of resveratrol which has been soundly investigated is its cancer-chemopreventive potential. In fact, studies have shown that it “blocks” the carcinogenesis at various stages: tumor initiation, promotion, and progression. Scientists believe resveratrol down-regulates your body’s inflammatory response through the release of an abundance of anti-inflammatory compounds.
Resveratrol limits your body’s ability to produce two dangerous molecules known to trigger full-body inflammation, phospholipase D and sphingosine kinase. Other studies have shown the compounds potential to limit cyclooxygenase enzymes. These nasty molecules trigger inflammatory responses that damage tissue throughout your body. Now, your body naturally produces inflammation as a means of healing itself. However, a state of constant full-body inflammation is the cause of almost every chronic disease in humans.
