15 Natural Ways to Get Rid of Bags Under Eyes - The Art of Anti-Aging

They may show up when you’re stressed or short on sleep and disappear when you get some rest. However, at some point, bags or dark circles become a more permanent fixture. This is unfortunately a part of the aging process and happens at different times for different people. Usually, under-eye bags aren’t a cause for medical concern, but they are frustrating and have an unhealthy appearance. Thankfully, there are several things you can do at home to get rid of bags under eyes. Common Causes of Bags Under Eyes There are several possible causes for puffy, baggy eyes. As your skin ages, the tissues around your eyes start to weaken. One of the main reasons for this is that collagen production in your body drops as you get older.

Besides fluid, the weakened tissues allow fat that normally supports your eyes to move below your eyes as well. (5) Dizziness and Vertigo, Part II - Research on Aging. Artificial Blue Light is Making Us Age. By: Jon Barron staff writer Hiyaguha Cohen at The Baseline Of Health Foundation What is Blue Light?

Artificial Blue Light is Making Us Age

All light is composed of electromagnetic particles moving in waves. (1) Each color of the visible spectrum is associated with a wave of a particular length and intensity. These waves emit energy. Although it may seem counterintuitive, the shorter the wave, the more energy it emits. Molecular Hydrogen Information. Since 2007, research into the effects Molecular Hydrogen has on Oxidative Stress has exponentially increased.

Molecular Hydrogen Information

This is because scientists and researchers have identified the significant benefits that hydrogen may have on the general health of all living things as well as fighting disease. This is the leading edge of a new understanding in biology and there is still much to learn, however, a common theme has emerged, and that is that the supplementation of Molecular Hydrogen into the biological system, has a beneficial effect on the entire system.

Its effects are so diverse because it is a fundamental element and crucial in enabling the process of energy production, the cleaning up of the radicals created during that process, and ultimately life itself as a healthy complete organism. Approximately 62% of all the atoms in most animal species are Hydrogen atoms with another 24% Oxygen and 12% Carbon. Hydrogen is the lightest and simplest element with the symbol H.

A new study done on the E. coli bacteria provides a fascinating insight as to how humans could be transformed into virtually invulnerable super-beings. Radiation is incredibly dangerous to living processes. It can kill acutely1 or damage DNA and later cause cancer2 and atherosclerosis.3 Through a relatively simple process, E. coli were cultured to resist destruction caused by high-intensity radiation. What excites us is the mechanism by which these bacteria were able to avoid radiation destruction. The bacteria in this study were able to elude death from extreme radiation by dramatically accelerating their DNA repair processes.4 The significance of this finding is profound.

JANUARY 16, 2015 by APRIL McCARTHY How Heavy Metals Are Promoting Aging It's been known for decades that some metals, including iron, accumulate in human tissues during aging and that toxic levels of iron have been linked to neurologic diseases, such as Parkinson's.

How Heavy Metals Are Promoting Aging

The fact is that all metals are toxic and the aging and diseases processes run wild without special transport and handling mechanisms to keep them from harming us. This applies just as much as essential minerals, like iron, zinc and chromium, as it does to non-essential metals and metalloids, like cadmium and arsenical compounds. 7 causes of age-related cognitive decline. (NaturalHealth365) “Senior moments.”

7 causes of age-related cognitive decline

We’ve all heard of them, or even experienced a few ourselves – those small mental glitches that are annoying, but not significant enough to interfere with daily life. Inevitably, normal aging brings some loss in cognitive function – usually involving lapses in memory, a reduced ability to maintain focus, and decreased problem-solving capacity. But, it’s the more serious issues surrounding dementia that are life-threatening AND avoidable. For starters, oxidative stress and inflammation are truly enemies from within the body. Although the brain naturally loses volume and efficiency due to aging, certain factors can accelerate the process. Optimize Digestive Health. Many of the health complaints that plague aging adults—from impaired immunity to digestive distress and nutritional deficiencies—can be traced to a key underlying factor: poor digestive health.

Optimize Digestive Health

One common cause of impaired digestive health is an age-related decline in the digestive enzymes needed to extract essential nutrients from the foods we eat. Without these crucial enzymes, food passes through the gastrointestinal tract without yielding its beneficial constituents. The result is poor nutritional status, which can contribute to numerous disease processes. Can Acetyl L-Carnitine and Lipoic Acid Slow the Aging Process?

(Image: Glyn Nelson/Flickr) Whenever I see my 10-year-old daughter brimming over with so much energy that she jumps up in the middle of supper to run around the table, I think to myself, "those young mitochondria. " Mitochondria are our cells' energy dynamos. Descended from bacteria that colonized other cells about 2 billion years, they get flaky as we age.

Recent research suggests it may be possible to reverse mitochondrial decay with dietary supplements that increase cellular levels of a molecule called NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). Structure of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, oxidized (NAD+). NAD is a linchpin of energy metabolism, among other roles, and its diminishing level with age has been implicated in mitochondrial deterioration.
