We all want to Stay Feeling Young.

Remember wondering what you'd look like when you grew up? Wasn't it so exciting to imagine yourself as an adult? Well, at the time, yeah—it was exciting, but how about now? Unfortunately, we can’t reverse the aging process, but we can offer you some tips & tricks to help reduce the signs of aging, specifically inflammaging.

What is Inflammageing?

In simpler terms, inflammaging is a term used to describe aging induced by chronic inflammation. Inflammation is your body's process of fighting or healing something whether that be an infection, injury or toxin.

Acute inflammation is temporary, your body releases chemicals that trigger a healing response and once the infection, injury or toxin is gone, the inflammation is gone too. However with chronic inflammation, inflammatory chemicals do not turn off leaving your body in a constant state of alert.

Inflammaging can accelerate the aging process and may worsen some age-related symptoms and diseases:

  • Tissue Damage

  • Chronic Skin Conditions

  • Collagen Loss

  • Difficulties Fighting Skin Infections

Inflammaging has also been linked to mental health conditions like depression as well as neuroinflammation associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.

What Causes Inflammaging?

Several environmental factors may influence the course of aging, such as:

  • Pollutants

  • Dietary Factors

  • Chronic Stress

  • Smoking

  • Obesity

  • Radiation

How to Manage Inflammaging

Our foods and habits can speed up this process by providing the perfect storm for inflammation which breaks down the architecture of the skin. While inflammation can’t be completely prevented, it can be managed with a healthy lifestyle. If you want to avoid medication for treating inflammation, making healthy changes to your lifestyle should be your first step in managing inflammaging.

Foods that can speed up the aging process are said to include:

Sugar and sweetened fruit juices, soda, Refined carbohydrates: white pasta, white bread, pastries, baked goods made with sugars and refined foods, Fried foods, cooked vegetable oils found in store-bought baked goods, Margarine, shortening, trans fats, Ultra-processed foods with food additives ie. artificial food dyes and flavoring, preservatives etc, Modern wheat gluten, Processed dairy
