Anti-Aging Food: Go With The Grain

Can eating a diet rich in certain foods actually be a viable anti-aging therapy? Yes, if you go with the grain. Whole grain, that is.

Whole grain foods such as wild and brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat and rye, bulgar, and even popcorn can be a very effective part of an anti-aging diet. Whole grains are an outstanding source of B vitamins and antioxidants and they provide iron, magnesium, and fiber as well – all of which are important at any age, but absolutely vital to health and well-being as we get older.

Here are just a few ways in which whole grains play an anti-aging role in diet:

Reduced risk of colon cancer – A mammoth 16-year study that monitored over a million participants concluded that consumption of whole grains was inversely associated with the risk of developing colorectal cancer.

Better weight control – A Dutch study of nearly 5,000 older adults found a direct link between increased whole grain consumption and reduced risk of overweight and obesity. Increased whole grain intake was also associated with lower Body Mass Index.

Lower risk of diabetes – An ongoing joint U.S. – Norwegian study has found that whole grains are an important part of what they term a “low risk food pattern” that has been found to lower risk of developing diabetes by as much as 15%.

Improved heart health
– A 20-year Harvard study of more than 20,000 physicians concluded that that those eating two to six servings of whole grain cereal a week reduced their risk of heart failure 22%, while those eating whole grains daily reduced risk by 28%. In addition, a massive Wake Forest University study of more than 285,000 participants found that eating as little as 2.5 servings of whole grain foods daily can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by almost one-quarter.

Decreased incidence of gum disease – The findings of a 14-year study of more than 34,000 Canadian men conclude that the risk of periodontitis, a serious inflammation of the gums that frequently leads to tooth loss in adults, may be significantly reduced by eating three to four servings of whole grains daily.

Potassium In Skin Care Revolution

Potassium is a mineral that most of us don’t think about too often. Interestingly, it is also a mineral that can help the skin in many different ways. How much do you know about potassium and your skin?

Potassium helps muscles to keep their control over the body. Potassium also helps with the growth of new cells. When your body is able to produce new cells, your skin will become healthier. The question is: where can you get your daily dose of potassium?

There are lots of skin care products that include potassium. Then again, you’ll have to be careful about what type of product you use (more on that topic below). However, this happens to be one mineral that you can get from the foods that you eat. Foods that are high in potassium include:

• Meat, Fish, and Poultry
• Apricots
• Avocado

Many other fruits and vegetables are also high in potassium. The trick is to eat enough potassium for your skin to benefit from it, but you shouldn’t overindulge in potassium either. As with most other things, there is a fine line between eating a proper amount and eating too much.

Potassium also helps to relieve any stressful or anxious feelings that you might have; it can reduce the risk of high blood pressure; and it may even be able to prevent stroke. Just think – one small mineral that most people never even think about can help with all of these things.

You may also decide to take a potassium supplement. These supplements are great if you don’t get enough potassium regularly. Of course, you must make sure that you choose a supplement that is good for your body. This means that you must select one that is all natural.

In fact, any skin care products that aren’t made from natural ingredients tend to be rather poor. Some of these chemically concocted products may even harm your skin. This is why it’s important to constantly read the back of any skin care product label.

While you do need to have a good amount of potassium in your diet in order to create healthy skin, you must also make sure that you use only good skin care products. Otherwise, simply try and get your potassium from the foods that you eat.

Now that you know a bit more about potassium, you can begin to adjust your diet accordingly. It may be difficult to keep up with all of the things that are good for your skin, but it’s also important. Since you will have the same skin for the rest of your life (there’s no possibility of trading that skin in!), it makes sense to take care of it.

There are lots of minerals in the world that can really help your skin. The more that you read about your skin, the better off your skin will be. When it comes to skincare, knowledge really is all the power that you need…of course, a healthy dose of potassium doesn’t hurt either.

Anti-Aging Therapies: Can Coffee Protect Against Alzheimer’s?

Every coffeehound knows how important that beautiful brew can be. It wakes us up in the morning, it’s the midafternoon pause that refreshes, and it’s the ideal accompaniment to after-dinner everything, from dessert to discussions. We know it makes us feel better … but can it actually help our brains function better?

It looks like the answer is yes. A University of North Carolina study on the effects of drinking coffee concluded that caffeine is a safe and reliable drug that could potentially play a role in the therapies against neurological disorders. It is even believed that drinking coffee could help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, one of the most wide-spread and devastating of all age-related disorders.

How coffee protects the brain
Coffee’s protective powers center on what medical experts call the “blood brain barrier”, a natural filter that guards the central nervous system against potentially dangerous chemicals that may be carried through the rest of the bloodstream. It is believed that high cholesterol levels in the blood have an adverse effect of this filter, weakening the barrier against these chemicals and leaving the brain vulnerable to damage.

The University of North Dakota study showed that after three months of a high-cholesterol diet, the blood brain barrier in rabbits that had ingested the equivalent of just one cup of coffee per day was far more intact than the barrier in those that had been given no caffeine.

Research on Alzheimer’s disease indicates that a weak or “leaky” blood brain barrier that makes cholesterol damage to the brain possible is among the factors that can trigger or contribute to the disease.

Caffeine shown to reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms

A recent University of Florida study even suggests that caffeine could actually reverse some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. The study used mice bred to develop symptoms of the disease, which were tested to confirm that they were exhibiting the same kind of memory impairment that human Alzheimer’s sufferers experience.
Half the mice were then put on a daily regimen that included the caffeine equivalent of five cups coffee added to their drinking water, while half the mice had no caffeine added to their water.

After two months both groups of mice were retested, and it was found that the mice that had been drinking the caffeine-added water performed significantly better on memory and thinking skills, actually testing as well as mice that had not been bred to develop dementia. The mice that had been drinking non-caffeinated water showed no improvement in the tests.

Even more encouragingly, it was found that the brains of the mice given caffeine showed as much as 50% reduction in levels of beta amyloid protein, which is the basis of the destructive plaque that builds up in the brains of dementia patients. The research suggested that caffeine had this effect because it suppresses brain inflammation that leads to over-production of the protein.

Experts warn that while these results are extremely positive, more research is needed to determine whether caffeine has the same effects on people.

Natural Anti Aging Recipes You Can Make At Home

Are you tired of paying for anti aging creams that don’t work? Well never fear, there is certainly plenty of room in every woman’s skin care routine for using natural products to enhance her current skin care regime. Here are some natural anti aging recipes that you can make at home.

Egg White Facial Mask

This egg white mask will have a lifting effect on the skin, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Simply whisk two egg whites until they are completely white and foamy. Apply the whipped egg to your face and leave it to dry. Rinse off well with cool water, you will instantly feel a smoother, firmer skin surface.

Natural Yoghurt

Great as a cleanser and moisturizing mask for aging skin, natural yoghurt will leave your skin feeling smooth and silky. Add honey to use as a moisturizing mask, or oatmeal flakes and use as an exfoliating scrub. As a bonus, mix in a little lemon or lime. The Vitamin C is great for skin repair and the gentle acidic effect is great for fine lines and wrinkles.


Most people are aware of the health benefits of eating avocado. The same can be said for using it in your skin care regime. The following recipe will help improve the moisture level and elasticity of your skin. Combine an avocado with a large dash of olive oil, one egg white, and the juice of half a lime. Mix well and apply to the face for 20 minutes. Rinse well with cool water.

Home Skin Care Solution Downfalls.

One downfall when making your own skincare products at home is that it isn’t possible to isolate just the active ingredients that work well for skin care. Another is the time it takes to make and use the product. Many cosmetics manufacturers have spent time isolating natural ingredients and offering them as convenient skin care products. These can also be a great option for tired and aging skin.

Anti-Aging Vitamin A

Anti-Aging Vitamin A

Study proves Vitamin A reduces wrinkles

A recently published study found that face creams based on Vitamin A dramatically reduce the depth of wrinkles and significantly improve the appearance of skin in older women. Holy Land Cosmetics, which relies on the most advanced clinical trials in the field of para-medical cosmetics,(Cosmedics) has developed several preparations and ranges based on Vitamin A and Retinol.

A study conducted at the University of Michigan succeeded to prove that face creams based on Vitamin A dramatically reduce age wrinkles. This is not the first time in which research has proven that topical treatment with Vitamin A and its derivative – retinol veratin A reduces wrinkles and expression lines.

However, the study created waves among the scientific community in the field, where as opposed to many previously conducted studies, this time it was not a laboratory study on skin cells, but a clinical study with the participation of women, and then not just women – but women with average age of 87! This important study, which was published in the medical journal Archives of Dermatology, found that the use of retinol – a derivate of Vitamin A, had a significant rejuvenating and anti aging effect in the skin of the subjects.

The research subjects applied topically – on the inner side of the arm – moisturizer containing retinol in concentration of 0.4 percent, or alternatively moisturizer without retinol. After 24 weeks the researchers analyzed biopsy samples of the women’s skin tissue, and found significant differences in the depth of the wrinkles between the side on which the preparation was applied and the untreated side (because a biopsy was performed, the researchers preferred to apply the treatment to the arm skin and not the face skin, and chose the inner part of the arm, where the skin is thin and similar in texture to the face skin).

What was the explanation for this impressive finding?

An analysis of samples showed that the retinol significantly increased the production of two structural components of the skin – glycosaminoglycen and procollagen. The glycosaminoglycen is a glucose molecule known for its important property of binding large quantities of water, and as such serves to support the skin tissues. Procollagen is a precursor from which collagen is produced in our skin.

Increasing the production of procollagen leads to the increased production of collagen – the most important component of the skin.

One Vitamin, Many action mechanisms

The action mechanisms of Vitamin A in the skin and its importance in keeping the skin young and healthy are not limited solely to these two substances. Vitamin A has long been recognized as one of the strongest antioxidants, which protect our bodies from harmful oxidizing effects of free radicals. Among its many functions in the body, Vitamin A has been proven vital in keeping the skin soft and smooth.

Studies in the field of dermatology that focused on this vitamin and its derivatives – retinol and Retin A found that this is one of the only substances which, when applied topically over time can not only slow the aging of the skin, but also reverse the aging process, improve the condition of existing wrinkles and restore the skin. The studies showed that the prolonged topical application of Vitamin A accelerates the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which preserve the skin structure and its elasticity, and of hyaluronic acid, which thickens the dermis and smooths expression lines and small scars thus resulting in anti aging effects.

Apart from its great importance in treating and slowing signs of aging in the skin, Vitamin A helps regulate the production of melanin pigment – the skin pigment which protects the skin from the sun’s rays. Moreover, research has shown that this vitamin is also one of only two substances in the world proven unequivocally so far as being able to repair accumulated damage to the skin following exposure to the sun, and to dramatically fade pigmentation spots. In addition, it has been shown that topical application of Vitamin A or retinol improves the condition of the skin in cases of acne. Regular topical treatment helps normalize the secretion of oil from the sebaceous glands and constricts them, reduces comedones and improves the appearance of the skin.

Dedicated Vitamin A receptors

It is of interest to note that in the dermis – the middle layer of the skin, there are dedicated receptors for Vitamin A, which help the substance molecules penetrate the deep layers of the skin, resulting in a clear increase in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As a result the wrinkles and expression lines are smoothed, the skin becomes firmer and more elastic and there is ongoing improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin.

The changes that take place in the skin are amazing. Apart from the cosmetic effect on the external appearance such as anti aging, topical application of Vitamin A has an important internal effect. When a biopsy sample is taken from a certain area of the face skin before treatment and after two years of treatment, a considerable difference is observed. The first sample, taken prior to treatment, presents the effects of damage due to age and the sun on all layers of the skin, where the corneum stratum (the top layer of the skin) is not normal, the epidermis is too thin and its cells lose their typical arrangement, and the collagen and elastin fibers are relatively sparse and few.

By contrast, in the later sample, it can be observed that the corneum stratum appears normal, the epidermis thickens and its cells are organized, the collagen and elastin fibers are arranged and the skin becomes elastic and firmer.

Ingredient in anti-aging medicine

Due to the dramatic and effective effects of Vitamin A on the skin, it is in fact today considered one of the only ingredients whose properties can achieve real change in the face skin, and even more – one of the components used in anti-aging medicine.

Holy Land Cosmetics, relying on the most advanced clinical studies, has developed several formulations and para-medical product lines based on Vitamin A and on retinol. As it is known, one of the main factors responsible for the effectiveness of a cosmetic preparation is the concentration of its active agent. In the study conducted at the University of Michigan, as said the researchers used retinol in a concentration of 0.4%. Holy Land Cosmetics’ preparations based on retinol contain different concentrations, with some reaching double the concentration of that used in the study – i.e. 0.8%.

Anti aging:

The “Alpha-Beta” & “Retinol product line”, a unique range which is particularly active in rehabilitation and rejuvenation of face skin, is based on a combination of retinol with alpha and beta hydroxy acids. The leading product in this range is “Premium Peel” – smart peeling from the new generation, based on active retinol which facilitates real change in the skin. Other preparations in the range also contain retinol in especially active concentrations.

Acne treatment:

The “A-Nox Plus Retinol” product line of Holy Land Cosmetics, for the renewal of skin afflicted with acne, is also based on natural retinol, combined with plant extracts, aromatic and antiseptic oils, minerals and more. This range has been clinically tested on cases of acne vulgaris and has also proven effective in extremely severe cases. The product line is used by cosmeticians, as well as by dermatologists who treat acne.

One of the company’s flagship products – “Multivitamin Serum” – is based on Vitamin A, combined with five other vital vitamins – C, E, F, H, K and Vitamin B complex.

The Difference Between Hypoallergenic Skin Care and 100% Pure Skin Care

In the quest for natural skincare, there are a number of terms that are often used when describing cosmetics and skin products. They include 100% pure skincare, hypoallergenic skincare, and organic skin care. There are some large differences between these terms and if you have sensitive skin it is a good idea to know which is which.

The phrase 100% pure skincare is a bit of a misleading title. Any natural ingredient has been processed slightly and this renders it so that it is no longer 100% pure skincare. The closest you can get to 100% pure skin care is aloe vera gel that you have harvested yourself from the plant. Even then, some people may argue that drawing it out of the leaf renders it no longer 100% pure skincare.

100% pure skin care gives no promises that there will not be an allergic or negative reaction to the ingredients in the product. 100% pure skin care simply implies that there are no additional chemicals or substances that have been mixed with the ingredient being listed as 100% pure skin care ingredients. It is ironic that it can be difficult to know how much of the particular ingredient listed as being 100% pure skincare has been included in the product you are using.

Many people think that hypoallergenic skincare products will not cause allergies, but this is not the case. Hypoallergenic products do have the chance to cause allergic reactions but the chance of having an allergic reaction with a hypoallergenic skincare product is lower. In some cases, the formulation of hypoallergenic skin care products is different so that even people who are allergic to a particular ingredient may be able to use that ingredient in a hypoallergenic skin product.

Keep in mind that in order for a product to be labelled as hypoallergenic skincare, it has often been modified significantly from its natural form. If you are trying to use more natural skincare products, you may have a hard time finding natural ingredients in a hypoallergenic skin product.

Organic skin care products are also different from 100% pure skincare products and those that are labelled hypoallergenic skincare. Like the 100% pure skincare products, there are no guarantees that organic ingredients will not cause allergic reactions. It simply designates that an ingredient has been grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers.

Whether it is 100% pure skin care, hypoallergenic skincare, or organic ingredients, you should always make sure that you do not continue to use a product which makes your skin tight, red or painful.

Skin Care For Nurses

Nurses have a never ending fight against the bacteria and germs that are found in the walls and halls of health care facilities.  Nurses must continually wash their hands and practice good hygiene. They are in a constant battle to fight skin problems that relate to the closed air system in their work environment and the necessity to continually wash their hands. One big problem that they happen across the most often is dry skin.

Dry skin can cause any one to feel itchy and sometimes can cause cracks in the skin that are very painful. Not to mention the appearance of natural beauty literally fades away while the damage constantly increases. It is not just nurses that have this problem, statistics have shown that one in every five people suffer from dry skin. Nurses just tend to show these problems more often due to the nature of their jobs.

One of the best things that can be done to mitigate dry skin problems is to follow a few basic prevention methods. First, if you  do suffer from dry skin, then the bathing routine should be limited to about ten minutes and  no more than once a day. Using some mild unscented bath oils in your bath can help alleviate itching.  Warm (not hot) baths are easier on the skin than a harsh steamy shower. Do not use rough scrubbing surfaces on your skin.  Instead, substitute a soft loufah for scrubbing to help in defoliating dead skin cells.

Other things that can be done to prevent dry skin can be simple, such as not allowing the harsh weather to be in contact with your skin. Use gloves when the weather is cold or windy outside. Raw winter weather can dry exposed skin quickly and cause painful cracks that are often difficult for nurses to heal.  Using a humidifier in your house during the coldest months will raise the humidity in your air at home as well and lead to a healthier environment.  Limiting caffeine and alcohol usage is recommended if you suffer from dry skin as these beverages cause dehydration, accentuating dry skin.  For the same reason, heavily scented deodorants and perfume usage should be limited.

Using moisturizers is essential to remedying dry skin. There are multitudes of moisturizing products on the market today with a variety of price ranges. They come in creams, ointments, and lotions. Finding the product that is right for your skin often is a lengthy trial and error procedure.  Some products show immediate negative signs such as skin irritations, but it may take weeks to determine whether a moisturizer is having a beneficial effect on your skin.  There is conflicting evidence as to whether the higher priced moisturizing systems are better than their less expensive cousins found on the shelves of Wal-Mart.

The form of moisturizer has a bearing on its effectiveness.  Ointments are typically thick and greasy and should be used at night when they will work best to trap your natural moisture in the skin. Creams are not as greasy as ointments but it is necessary to apply them more often to get the same benefits. Lotions are not as effective as the ointments or creams, but they do absorb much faster and they tend to be easier to use during the day. Using the type of moisturizer appropriately has a bearing on its effectiveness. Daily prevention aids for dry skin are not always enough.  If you have already shown severe signs of dry skin you should consult a family doctor or dermatologist to correct skin damage.

Nursing shoes can be a cause of foot related skin problems.  The use of pantyhose causes feet to sweat inside nursing shoes after long hours of walking the halls of a hospital or clinic.  Resulting skin problems such as athlete’s foot can be difficult to control.  Contrarily, the use of socks in nursing shoes controls perspiration but often dries the feet, especially in cold weather, causing cracked skin on heels and soles.  It is especially important to use a good foot cream for daily use and a heavier ointment for overnight treatment.  Foot massages at the end of the day help restore circulation to the feet creating not only healthier skin, but less painful tootsies.

For nurses, getting plenty of rest between shifts is essential to optimum performance on the job, but it is also an integral part of healthy skin care.  Before donning your uniform scrubs and nursing shoes and heading out the door, practice good skin care by getting plenty of rest, use your favorite moisturizer and don’t forget to pack a lotion or cream to refresh your skin during the day.

Benefits of Anti Aging Amino Acids

Even though the world cannot actually stop people from aging, we continuously try to find ways to look younger and stop the signs of aging. Anti aging amino acids is something else that helps our body.

You need a balanced and steady supply of these nutrients so that you are able to maintain a proper body function. If there is a shortage, it can have a negative impact. Amino Acids are used in most body processes from the way the body works to brain function.

They are also able to activate and utilize vitamins and other nutrients. There are amino acids that we need, and amino acids that we don‘t need. Essential means it cannot be and Non-Essential means it can be produced from within.

Approximately 80% of the amino acids are non-essential and the other 20% are essential. Non-essential in no way implicates unimportance. Amino acids are important to the functioning of protein within our body. The majority of our body weight comes from protein, with the first being water.

Substances of protein make up our hair, nails, tendons and ligaments, glands and organs, muscles and many important bodily fluids. Proteins are important for bone growth as well. Proteins in our body are formed for a specific purpose. What happens is the food that we eat containing protein is broken down into amino acids.

Then the body takes the amino acid supplied and uses it to construct the proteins the body is in need of at the time. Without the amino acids, the proteins could not be manufactured, therefore making amino acids significantly important.

Without the necessary amino acids being available, the body renders vitamins and minerals useless because the vitamins are unable to fulfill their purpose, without sufficient amino acids.

Coconut Milk as Natural Skin Care

Coconut milk is fast becoming a natural skin care ingredient. It has a very high fat content and is also very high in natural fatty acids. Fatty acids are natural antiseptic that gently deep cleans impurities perfect even for ultra sensitive skin. It has been confirmed by skincare experts that topical use of coconut milk can help cure some skin conditions.

Coconut milk, when used with cleansers can take away dirt and oil from the skin. It creates a clean, soft, and smooth complexion. Coconut milk salt scrubs gently exfoliate the top skin layer while leaving the next layer smooth and supple.

Natural skin care products that are organically made contain no chemicals like artificial scents, colors, and even preservatives. They key is to read the labels of the products you are buying. It also helps you to check what other benefits you can get from the product. There are some coconut milk cleansers that have anti-bacterial ingredients that are good for your skin. But generally, coconut milk will help to moisturize and soften the skin. To ensure top quality ingredients and results, make sure the product uses real coconut milk, not an artificial substitute.

When buying a coconut milk cosmetic, make sure what is written on the label is “organic coconut milk”, and not the “light” or “diluted” version. The diluted type has less lauric acid. Lauric acid is converted into monolaurin by the body. This is a natural health aid. Mixing coconut milk with other chemicals make it less effective, if any, skincare value.

Coconut milk has higher values of antioxidants – phenolic antioxidants, as compared to coconut oils. One reason for this is the fact that organic coconut growers plant coconut in soils rich in nutritional value. It makes your skin respond to the product making it more effective than diluted or chemically enhanced products. It is a fact that if you have sensitive skin, coconut milk is the suitable natural skin care product for you.
