What Is Healthy Ageing and Why Is It Important?
What is healthy ageing?
WHO defines healthy ageing as “the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age.” Healthy ageing is about creating the environments and opportunities that enable people to be and do what they value throughout their lives. This can be anything from having strong social interactions and mobility, to having good cognitive ability and a safe and secure environment to live. Many factors influence whether we live a long and healthy life; access to quality health care, exposure to pollution, stress, and diet just to name a few. However, many of these factors are out of our control. So how can we ensure we age in a healthy way? Well, one of the ways that we can achieve healthy ageing is by focusing on cellular ageing.
What is cellular ageing?
Cellular ageing is the gradual loss of cellular functions which eventually results in cell death. Basically, everything we associate with getting older is due to cellular ageing and cells being unable to perform their specific functions until they die. Scientists now know that many factors such as physical exercise, sleep, depression, and certain gene mutations can lead to premature biological aging. And as we said with regards to healthy ageing, environmental factors, such as ultraviolet rays, poor diet, and alcohol, as well as psychological factors including stress, are putting our cells at risk of significant damage.
Can we slow down cellular ageing?
There is a way to hack our own biology that’s perfectly safe and extremely effective. We can slow down cellular ageing and help our bodies work towards a healthy ageing goal by using something called NAD+. NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It naturally exists in all our living cells; managing our energy levels, and helping with cell regeneration and anti-ageing. NAD+ is fundamental for life and as important to our bodies as oxygen. Unfortunately, as we age, our NAD+ levels decline. By topping up our NAD+ levels we can help our cells function normally for longer and slow down the effects of ageing.
