Premature Ageing

 

 

 

We all age, but premature ageing is a condition where a person ages faster than they should.

Some of the most common signs of premature ageing appear in your skin, with wrinkles and age spots. A large factor in “premature skin ageing” is a result of free radical activity in the body which usually happens because of constant environmental exposures such as radiation from the sun, UV rays, tobacco smoke and pollution.

Even physical stress and poor diets can also contribute to free radicals running rampant in our system thus increasing the ageing process. Too much of free radicals can lead to poor circulation, deteriorated eye health and weakened vein and skin elasticity – all of which can lead to premature ageing.

Let’s take a closer look below on its 3-way action protection:

1) Powerful antioxidant protection

It has strong antioxidant properties that are 50 times greater than Vitamin E and 20 times greater than Vitamin C which makes it effective in reducing the damaging effects of free radicals, including UV damage to our skin that causes premature ageing.

2) Strong nutritional support

As we age, so do our blood vessels, which can often get blocked, stiffen and become less flexible. It makes sense to look after our blood vessels and keep them flexible, and strong.

This extract helps ensure that our nutrient delivery system (our blood vessels) stays strong. It would not only make sure that our organs receive the oxygen and nutrients they need but also it will be able to remove the harmful toxins out from the body.

A healthy outside starts on the inside!

3) Potent collagen support

Did you know that you start losing around 1.5% of collagen a year once you hit your mid 20’s. It declines over time due to premature ageing and free radical damage.

Collagen is essential to LAC MASQUELIER’s® French Pine Bark Extract’s three-way action. With this supplement, it will help to support your collagen – providing structural reinforcement to the extracellular space of your connective tissues.

Neutralise excess free radicals

Remember, a good diet and regular exercise should always be the foundation for building your best health. However, sometimes the body needs a little added support and supplementation which can go a long way to shield yourself against premature ageing.

When we think of our health and primary organs in the body, usually our heart, brain, kidneys are among the first one’s that comes to mind.

Organ such as the liver often tend to get forgotten. Most of us know that consuming harmful drinks such as alcohol will have a severe impact on the liver’s health, but did you know there are also other factors that influence liver health too?

In this article, we dive deep into liver health, why it’s important and what steps you can take to ensure this vital organ stays healthy for the long-term.

What does the liver do?

To put in perspective how vital our liver is, it’s been known to perform “at least 500 functions” that keep us healthy. It is the second-largest organ in the body and has many important jobs, including filtering toxins from your bloodstream, balancing macro- and micronutrients, and regulating hormones.

Click here to find out the explanation

These 3 are some of the liver’s vital functions: to eliminate toxins, to metabolise nutrients (carbohydrates, lipids and proteins), and store energy as glycogen.

Detoxification

The liver functions as a filter that recovers and eliminates harmful toxins. Those toxins can be naturally present in the waste generated by our metabolism, like ammonia, or in the ones we eat or drink.

Synthesis

Our liver assures the metabolism of the carbohydrates, the fat and the proteins while producing bile, an essential element for our digestion. It also avoids haemorrhages via the coagulation process.

Storage

The liver stores vitamins (A, D, E, and K) and glycogens (carbohydrates) meaning it stores energy like sugar and makes it available when we need it.

Click here to find out the explanation

It is located on your right side, midway between your waist and your armpit.

Your liver is a unique organ

The human adult liver weighs averagely around 1.4 kg and is found in the right upper abdomen, below the diaphragm. It takes up most of the space under the ribs and some space in the left upper abdomen, too.

Because of the importance of the liver and its functions, evolution has ensured that it can regrow rapidly as long as it is kept healthy. All vertebrates, from fish to humans, have the ability to regrow the liver.

Did you know?

Did you know that it is the only visceral organ that can regenerate? It can regenerate completely, as long as a minimum of about 25% of the tissue remains. The liver can regrow to its previous size and ability without any loss of function during the growth process.

Unhealthy dietary habits can lead to the rise of a modern disease known as the fatty liver.

Your liver does a lot to keep you healthy, especially acting as your body’s filter to clear out toxins. However, overworking it with a high-stress lifestyle, lack of sleep and eating an unhealthy diet for too long, might cause it to acquire its own health problems.

Unhealthy dietary habits can lead to the rise of a modern disease known as the fatty liver. What is worrying is that fatty liver is not easily detected in the early onset and can go undetected for years.

As the condition progresses, symptoms such as fatigue, abdominal distension after meals, bloatedness, discomfort after slight alcohol consumption, mild diarrhoea after meals will begin to surface.

Fatty liver is greatly due to unhealthy lifestyle such as being (overweight, stress, lack of sleep, high levels of fat and sugar, consuming fast food regularly) and not just due to alcohol and toxins.

The more unhealthy our lifestyle is, the greater the burden is on the liver. Of course, nowadays, it’s difficult to live a complete stress-free life and avoid unhealthy foods.

Hence LAC, short for Leader in Antioxidative Control, has introduced their LAC L.Pro

Click here to find out the explanation

Foods that are high in fat, sugar, and salt can affect liver function over time. Fried and fast foods can also affect the health of your liver.

Made from carefully selected Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM) herbs , LAC L.Pro. helps to  promote better blood circulation and soothe the liver. Since its founding, LAC has embarked on a pioneering journey to develop scientifically-based formulas, to neutralise free radicals, combat ageing brought forth by oxidative stress, and support you daily in looking, feeling, and functioning at your best.

Remember that your everyday choices and lifestyle habits can affect the health of your liver in the long term. Live a happy life with a healthy liver. A healthy liver can increase your life expectancy, which implies that you will have more time creating memories with your loved ones.

What goes behind the production of treated water involves a complex operation from raw water abstraction to water treatment and distribution to consumers. All the equipments and assets require continuous and periodical upgrading and maintenance works to ensure clean and safe treated water supply remains sustainable.

Over the past decade, Malaysia has witnessed a dramatic increase in the prevalence of mental disorder. Two years on, the pandemic is far from over. As we continue to adjust to life in a new normal, many stressors persist. We now have to cope with:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Concerns about the future
  • Fast-paced living
  • Emerging infectious diseases

What is mental health and wellness?

Mental health is just as important as physical health – we need both to achieve overall wellness and quality of life. Unfortunately, we tend to overlook the importance of mental wellness, and often take it for granted.

Read More

Mental health is the foundation for our emotions, thinking, communication, learning, resilience and self-esteem. Our mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Indeed, good mental health is key to healthy relationships, good personal and emotional well-being, and our ability to contribute to community or society.

Do note that although often used interchangeably, poor mental health and mental illness are not the same.

Mental health involves effective functioning in daily activities. If you have good mental health, you are productive (work, school, caregiving), have healthy relationships, and able to adapt to change and cope with adversity.

Mental illness

Mental illness refers collectively to all diagnosable mental disorders. Common mental illnesses are depression, bipolar disorder, post-partum depression, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorders etc.

Read More

Someone suffering from a mental illness experiences significant changes in thinking, emotion and/or behaviour, and typically has problems functioning in social, work or family settings.

Alas, many people who have a mental illness do not want to talk about it due to social stigma. But mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a medical condition, just like heart disease or diabetes. And mental health conditions are treatable. The vast majority of individuals with mental illness continue to function in their daily lives.

Have you ever looked at your grandparents as the years went by and wondered if they got shorter every year, or was it an optical illusion as you grew? Well don’t worry, because it is normal for everyone to lose some height as they age.

Why do we shrink as we age? Over the years, the discs between your spine’s vertebrae flatten, your muscles start to lose mass and the spaces between your joints will narrow. 

Have you ever looked at your grandparents as the years went by and wondered if they got shorter every year, or was it an optical illusion as you grew? Well don’t worry, because it is normal for everyone to lose some height as they age.

Why do we shrink as we age? Over the years, the discs between your spine’s vertebrae flatten, your muscles start to lose mass and the spaces between your joints will narrow.

Based on the National Library of Medicine, people typically lose almost one-half inch (about 1 centimetre) every 10 years after age 40. While losing some height as you get older is normal, a significant loss of height can be attributed to osteoporosis.

Taking care of your bones will help you reach your full potential to perform at your best. Find out more on osteoporosis and some vital advice on taking care of your bones from the expert, Dr Ahmad Norshahrid Zahari, Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon from KPJ Sentosa KL Specialist Hospital.

What is Osteoporosis?

According to Dr Ahmad, osteoporosis, or porous bones, is a systemic disease in which the bones lose density.  It causes the bones to become thin, weak, more fragile and would fracture easily even if it is only a trivial injury. Having osteoporotic fractures can reduce mobility and may affect quality of life.

When you’re young, your body makes new bones faster than it breaks down old bones and your bone mass increases. After your early 20s this process slows, and most people reach their peak bone mass by age 30. As people age, bone mass is lost faster than it’s created.

The common areas of the bones where osteoporosis would occur?

“Osteoporosis affects all bones of the body, and fractures usually occur at the regions with more cancellous bones since they are more porous and active in bone remodelling than cortical bones. Examples includes:

Can we stop bone loss from happening?

According to Dr Ahmad Norshahrid, we cannot stop our bone loss, because it is a natural ageing process and also because it has to do with our hormonal changes when we age, especially for women when their estrogen levels start to decline.

However, we can reduce our bone loss progression by taking the necessary amount of calcium  as part of balanced diet which can be found in:

  • Milk

  • Dairy products

  • Green leafy vegetables

  • Soy and soy products 

It is even more effective if you start consuming food intake with adequate amounts of calcium in your early years. Then when you become older it will serve as a cloak of protection for your bones.

How much calcium and vitamin D do I need every day?

Based on the Recommended Nutrient Intakes (RNI) for Malaysia, 2017, the calcium intake for young people is 1000mg per day. For women who are in their menopause stage, they should consume 1200mg of calcium per day.

The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. Without enough calcium, the body would take calcium from its stores in the bones, which weakens existing bone and prevents the formation of strong, new bone.

You can get vitamin D in three ways: 

  • Through the skin from sunlight, 

  • Your Diet

  • Supplements

It is recommended a daily vitamin D intake of 15 – 20 µg, RNI,2017. Examples of Vitamin D-rich foods are egg yolks, saltwater fish, liver, and fortified milk.
