Everything was decided at the age of 26 years. In his new book, “Health Before You,” cardiologist and nutritionist Frederic Saldmann is interested in the technique of becoming a centenarian, and beyond, living to 150. According to him, humans begin to age at the age of 26 years.
Therefore, it is necessary to take care of your body from this age. Too young to think of it? Not at all. “The earlier you start, the better,” he says.
Each year, our body loses 1 to 2% of muscle mass, so to maintain the health of the remaining mass, you must work through regular physical activity.
But she’s not the only one who needs attention, your brain also needs to be pampered. For you ladies, a little less work than our male friends. And for good reason, women’s brains are generally four years younger thanks to hundreds and hundreds of years of greater brain activity. However, you still need to get your neurons to function as often as possible.
IQ points evaporate very quickly, simple example, 3 weeks of vacation to drop out completely, and your brain has already dropped by 20 points according to Frederic Saldmann. Thus, during retirement in particular, a man or woman who leaves his brain at a complete rest can quickly be affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
At the same time, work stress can also harm your abilities because according to several studies “it takes five hours for the stress hormone to go down for one minute of black thinking,” which is a massive function of the brain.
The secret to longevity is:
Having goals: Having goals, dreams, goals, projects gives meaning to life. Thus we gain longevity.
Exercise: 40 minutes of exercise a day is a good rate for gaining longevity. Be careful, not necessarily aerobic exercise or strenuous sports, but for example swimming, cycling, hiking … In fact, according to the cardiologist, physical activity would reduce the risk of developing cancer, cardiovascular disease or Alzheimer’s .
Fasting practice: Thanks to intermittent fasting, “people develop their immunity and a molecule that sharpens brain and memory.” Fasting, he said, is a real “rejuvenation cure.”
You now have the keys to living happily ever after until you turn 150!
