Staying Young

Recently, some of my friends were discussing how to stay young and look good. Some had even talk about what products to use to stay young. Actually after much thought, I want to take this opportunity to pen down my thoughts.

In my opinion, the 4 pillars of staying young wil be nutrition, positive mind, sleep and of course, products for the face. Staying young is all about inside out. If internally is not well taken care, it will show extenally. Not matter how much money we put on the face, it will not work.

So why do we age? It is simply because we did not replace what has been used up by the body. Isn't that simple? Yet many people just doesn't get it.

The 2 basic foundation that the body is made of are both protein and water. Without protein, nothing can be build. Without water, nothing can flow in the body. Yet, many of us did not take quality protein or drink clean water for the body. For example, deep fried meat is bad protein whereas steamed is good. Soft drink is bad whereas filtered water is good. Once we understand this basic principle, staying young becomes a norm actually. The body works based on the basis that resources will always be shifted to ensure the body stay alive. Give you more examples. If our blood is acidic, then we will lose calcium that leads to osteporisis. So the problem is acidic blood, not lack of calcium. If the body needs more vitamin C to fight oxidative stess, then vitamin C will be released into the bloodstream by breaking down the skin. That's how our skin becomes inelastic.

  • Collagen: vitamin C and protein
  • Bones: calcium, magnesium, protein and vitamin C.
  • Brain: EPA, DHA, vitamin A,B,C,E
  • Liver: Fish oil and milk thistle plus qualty sleep
  • Kidney: vitamin C and filtered water
  • Eyes: carotenoids
  • Lung: carotenoids
  • Nails and hair: quality protein

May I suggest the following supplements with these schedules:
Before breakfast/after lunch/after dinner/before sleep

Protein powder: 2/-/-/2
Positron: 1/-/-/ (optional)
Double X: 1/-1/-
Bio-C: 3/4/3/4
B-complex: 3/3/3/- (urine will turn yellow. It's normal)
Mult-carotene: 1/1/1/1 (if skin or palm turn orange, stop. Once colour goes away, repeat)
Lecithin E: 4/4/4/4
Fish Oil: 1/1/-/-
Calcium/Magnesium: take according to bottle instructions.
Milk Thistle: 4 before sleep. ( breast feeding or pregnant ladies please consult doctors)

Besides taking supplements, a healthy diet with enough sleep and a positive mind is a winning formula to stay young. And of course, must drink clean filtered water, not distilled.
