Who doesn’t want to find the secret to eternal youth?

To be able to blend the wisdom gained by age with the health and vitality of the young would be ideal for many.

The truth is we are surrounded by an environment that constantly challenges us.

If you want to preserve your youth and health some basic tips would be to take an honest look at your lifestyle.

Things like smoking, drinking and drugs are no-brainers when it comes to accelerating the aging process.

But what about the other, not so obvious stuff?

Stress and a sedentary lifestyle have also been shown to increase metabolic distress and contribute to ageing.

Diet is also crucial – if you want your body to function at its best, you have to feed it only the best.

This means good quality fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, complex carbohydrates and good oils from salmon, nuts and avocado.

Let’s not forget about water.

So many people drink coffee and tea not realising that excess consumption is actually dehydrating them!
