Radiate with youthful freshness!
Who doesn’t know the feeling of getting older but still feeling young? Getting old isn’t what it used to be. Even at the age of 40, 50, 60 and beyond, we still aim to discover the world and remain open for new things. More and more people are managing to stay looking youthful and fresh in advanced age, bursting with energy. They radiate vitality and lightness.
The reason for this lies in a healthy lifestyle and a normal hormone balance. Hormones are our body’s fountain of youth. They affect ageing and the performance of our body and mind. Hardly a thing happens in the body without them. Hormones affect our health, our energy, our metabolism, how we sleep, our skin, our hair, our sense of hunger and our weight. They also influence our moods. Being hormonally balanced means not only an active, healthy lifestyle, but also keeps us from looking old so quickly.
Hormonal disorders are indicated by a variety of symptoms, including sudden bursts of peckishness, constant changes in weight, sleep disorders, or constant tiredness and fatigue. Hair loss, mood swings, depression, hot flushes, night sweats and gastrointestinal disorders may also be indicative of a hormonal imbalance. A balanced diet can help balance out your hormones again. Hormones can be rebalanced wholly naturally with the right foods. With healthy fats, local vegetables, algae, roots and fermented foods, the body can produce and balance out its hormones and resolve any hormonal problems. Vitamin B6 also helps to manage hormonal activity.
Another less known natural root is the yam, a super tuber with unique nutrients. The yam supplies not only a variety of minerals and vitamins but also contains large amounts of diosgenin, which works like a hormone in the body. It drives production of the hormone DHEA, which is capable of increasing bone stability and slowing the ageing process. The yam root also provides large quantities of vitamin B6 and offers many nutrients to boost the beauty of healthy skin. It improves cell generation and enhances the structure and formation of new cells. The yam root is also a source of vitamin C and key antioxidants. This combination of nutrients helps to reduce wrinkles and signs of ageing, and keeps you looking young and fresh until your later years.
