Can You Avoid Aging?
Walk into any department store and you’ll find hundreds of beauty products lining the shelves.
Each one of those products has something else, something unique to offer. Most promise to
hide the signs of aging. Some make claims of being able to erase the years and to have you
looking 10, 20 or more years younger. But, in truth, there is no way to avoid aging, is there?
Consider some numbers for a moment.
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the average life expectancy in the United States was that of
just 42 years of age! Today, that number has nearly doubled its size and that’s no short feet to
accomplish. The fact is that people are living longer because of the benefits of modern
medicine and the benefits that technology offer.
In fact, today, there are over 70,000 people in the United States alone that are at the age of 100
or more! That is an outstanding number.
What if we told you that it really had nothing to do with those products on the market, but that it
had to do with the things that you are capable of making changes with today, right now?
But, before you get to those good tidbits, it’s important for you to understand that you don’t just
want to look younger. You need to dig deeper into your lifestyle and feel younger.

The Baby Boomers’ Brain
Your brain is one of the most important things for you to take into consideration in any health
regimen. For the Baby Boomer, it is even more vitally important to care for your brain.
Today, the number of Alzheimer’s patients is quickly on the rise. There are numerous situations
in which people are forced to realize that the years are slipping by and they no longer can keep
a grasp on time.
There are a number of things you can do, actually, each of them offering their own benefit.
Here are some.
Learning is one of the very best things you can do to your brain. As you age, many stop doing
new things and looking for new areas of the world to explore. That is what starts the shut down
of the brain. Because you aren’t using it as much, especially for new things, you aren’t making
it function as much as it needs to.
When you keep your brain functioning, you encourage it to continue to be active. On the other
hand, if you don’t, you lose the necessary functions that you need.
Some ideas here include taking a new class, learning to do something that you enjoy such as a
new hobby, and even learning history. You can take courses at your local community college or
start a discussion group about the books that you are reading. Learn to plan a new instrument.
Learn to cook like a professional.
Keeping your brain active is very important to your overall well being. Without taking in these
considerations, you put your brain at risk for becoming ill and functioning less optimally. As you
can see, though, this is one of the most prosperous and easy parts of the Baby Boomer’s
lifestyle that can be changed for the better!
All About Baby Boomers
Supplementing And Hormones
As a combination of the diet and exercise regimens of the Baby Boomer, it is also important to
take into consideration supplementation and your body’s hormones, both of which are critical at
preserving the body’s health and longevity.
You may ask why you need to add supplements to your diet when you have just started on a
healthy diet that’s been described here. The reason for this is really unfortunate for most.
Supplementation is needed for other reasons as well. Here are some examples of why you
need to add the right nutrients to your diet now.
• Pesticides and herbicides are commonly used to help keep bugs off of the foods that are
grown. While you think that this is a good thing, it still causes problems for the production of
nutrients in the soil.
• The soil itself is often not even authentic soil! Some of the most modern farms are using
synthetic types of soil which allow for faster and longer growing seasons that produce
more products that’s also good looking.
• With genetic mutation, scientists of have developed fruits and vegetables (not to mention
virtually any other type of food that you eat) products that are genetically altered enough to
produce the perfect specimen every time. The nutrients get left out.
When you don’t get the right types and amounts of nutrients, your body will break down faster
with the onset of degenerative diseases. In fact, some studies have shown that with the proper
nutrients you can die early. As you know, we are working on keeping you healthy, longer and
