Although there have been many advances in modern medicine over the past century, there is still no magic drug or formula that will prevent you from aging, however, it is possible to at least slow down the hands of time and the following suggestions can help you to do just that.
Purslane to Feel Younger?
Purslane, which is also referred to as pigweed, is a little known plant that grows worldwide. Similar to noni juice, purslane is a rich source of numerous vitamins and minerals and it contains an exceptionally high level of antioxidants which help to slow the signs of aging by protecting the skin against environmental damage. Purslane is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and it has been found to have anti-microbial (infection reducing), fever reducing, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties.

Cleansing for Stamina
We humans are equipped with numerous organs (lungs, liver, bladder, colon, kidneys and skin) which work to detoxify and clean out our bodies. Unfortunately, as we grow older these organs can weaken and become clogged-up with waste, resulting in a decline in the energy and stamina that we so often associate with youth. Luckily, cleaning up your diet and periodic fasting can help to cleanse your body and restore your organs to their optimal state. You can enhance the cleansing effect of a fast by drinking a lot of water, meditating, resting up and using a sauna or steam room in order to sweat out excess toxins. Just be sure to consult with your healthcare practitioner before embarking on any radical cleanse or a fast that exceeds 24 hours.
If you really want to feel younger and slow down the aging process then you simply must exercise. It may be no secret that exercise will boost your energy and stamina but did you know that it will also help to counteract age related muscle loss and to prevent numerous age related diseases including cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer. A recent study has also found that exercising helps to maintain the protective tips which are found on bundles of genes inside cells. This is important because when the protective tips are lost wrinkles, muscle degeneration, cloudy thinking, eyesight loss, hearing impairment, and other issues which are associated with aging and feeling older may all ensue.
