People have always searched for a longevity elixir, drinks and food that will prolong their lives. Even though human life-span is considerably increased since the earlier period of human history, old age still awaits us and – at least for now – it’s unavoidable.
Aging, however, does not have the same effects on each individual. Some 40-year-old people seem quite old and have wrinkles all over their faces, while others who have 60 years look as if they are just 40. Some people are vital and really healthy even in their older age, while others experience decline in health too early in their lives. Poor sight, forgetfulness, osteoporosis, heart attack, and other diseases like these are commonly associated with aging. However, studies have shown that age is not always responsible for these diseases, and that very common the ‘responsible’ ones are the genetic predispositions, poor physical activity, and unhealthy diet.
