More specifically, you want help with How to Slow Down the Aging Process: 3 Life Hacks?
so in this video I want to show you some simple things you can do to slow down the aging process now some of the information I’m gonna talk about in this video is out of this book right here I’m gonna break it down really simply but it’s this book is called oxidants in biology fascinating read you need a medical dictionary to get through it because there’s a lot of biochemistry but there’s some gold nuggets in this book okay and they’re talking about the balance between antioxidants and oxidants okay in the environment so you have this constant battle because if you’re being exposed to all this oxidation you can kind of compare this to a car rusting out I mean it’s kind of weird that oxygen would create damage but too much of it can be very very damaging to your cells okay the mitochondria which is at the heart of your metabolism it’s the energy Factory and it actually has an engine and uses oxygen to break down fuel so it actually releases oxidants okay now some of that is good for the body in that these oxidants that your body makes kills off microbes but when the mitochondria and other parts of the cell become damaged and you’re getting too much oxidation from that that can actually destroy the cell and create all sorts of problems and set you up for even getting cancer so there’s a positive part of oxidation and there’s a negative part and the same thing goes with antioxidants which counter the oxidation you can get antioxidants from food and your body can make antioxidants and that is called endogenous antioxidants this means antioxidants that are made within your body as compared to exogenous antioxidants which are antioxidants outside the body okay so from vegetables for example but a really really important and misunderstood area is building up your antioxidant Network and getting your body to make more antioxidants so I’m going to show you just a few things you can do to build up this network without taking external antioxidants the hormone called melatonin is a very powerful antioxidant okay this occurs when you’re sleeping so when it gets dark and the less light coming into the eye there’s an entire cascade of things that happen in your brain and one is you get a spike of melatonin melatonin actually gets rid of hydrogen peroxide maybe you have used hydrogen peroxide in the past let’s say you had a cut and you want to sterilize it to kill the bacteria you you put the hydrogen peroxide and it bubbles up and it kills off the microbes well your cells actually make hydrogen peroxide to kill off microbes as well but sometimes our bodies make too much hydrogen peroxide and that’s very toxic to the body because it’s creating too much oxidation well if you have enough melatonin this can counter that and that’s just one thing that it does but I don’t recommend going to the store and buying melatonin what I am gonna recommend is just getting more sleep or take naps okay so the second thing that they talk about in here is the difference between occasional exercise and regular exercise regular exercise as in routine in on a regular basis will build up your endogenous antioxidant Network okay now initially when you do exercise let’s say it’s an intense workout you’re gonna generate tremendous amounts of oxidation it’s gonna break down the muscle tissue let’s consider bad right but as you do it over time your body gets used to it it starts to adapt and it starts to build up huge amounts of antioxidants to counter the stress or oxidation damage from exercise so regular exercise on a consistent basis will help to build up your antioxidants and protect you against oxidation and you are going to start looking younger when you do this and it could be as simple as walking every day but routine regular exercise is very very important so we have high quality regular sleep or naps and regular exercise it seems really really simple next one is fasting and I’m talking about regular fasting as in intermittent fasting because you can’t just do fasting on a long-term basis because at some point you have to eat right but intamin fasting would be a regular routine of combination of fasting and eating and that produces huge spike in your endogenous antioxidant Network an ideal pattern for you to work up to would be 20 hours of fasting in a 4-hour eating window so let’s say for example you a tab 3 and then the next meal would be at 4 5 6 and 7 ok so it would be 4 hours later that would be like the eating window but then you’d fast for 20 hours that would be very very beneficial if you’re new to my channel I put a link below of how to do that the benefit of fasting is something called a Tov G a tov adji means self eating so your body is actually recycling its own tissue one of the bad effects from oxidation that causes aging or premature aging is what oxidation does to your proteins okay it creates what’s called miss folded proteins and these proteins kind of gunk up and they get stuck in the body they don’t exit the body that well and they clog up things between your neurons creating memory problems and eventually Alzheimer’s they clog up the heart and they’re in the eye they’re in the kidney they’re in the nervous system so there’s miss folder proteins come from oxidation and also they actually create oxidation they create a toxic effect in the body and your body has a hard time getting rid of these because they’re non-functional well it just so happens that fasting through a tough OG can take these miss folder proteins put them into a garbage disposal and start to break down these proteins okay there’s actually detergents that your body uses in certain enzymes to break down this protein and on the other side it spits out brand-new amino acids that your body can then use to rebuild so fasting really slows down the aging process as well as stimulate certain genes that help so here we have sleeping or napping regular exercise and intimate of fasting these three are very very very powerful and that’s why I want to put your attention on this okay the next thing to do is to avoid excessive amount of oxidants now a body makes enough oxidants for us to then get more externally iron for example like let’s say for example you’re taking a multi supplement from the drugstore read the label make sure it doesn’t have iron in it because that’s one way to get the wrong type of iron the thing about iron is it’s very difficult to get rid of iron if there’s too much so you want to avoid cooking and iron skillets for example and definitely don’t take iron as a supplement unless you have for example some anemia which you’re low in iron and you tested it in which case you can take a food base iron which comes from like bovine liver make sure it’s grass-fed and of course one of the biggest things that creates oxidation is high levels of sugar in the diet even your blood Sugar’s being high that will just oxidate the the eyes kidney the nerves the brain so this is a real big one right here glycation what is that that is the combination between sugar and a protein so if you’re eating foods that are cooked with sugar and protein that’s really really bad or you’re consuming foods with fat and sugar together heated that would be very very bad that creates some serious oxidation so that would be like ice cream for example because you’re cooking in this fat with this sugar you’re gonna get a lot of glycation and glycation also happens in our bodies if you have high levels of blood sugar and your body is 98.6 it can actually create glycation of your your red blood cells and one of the tests for that which is related to diabetes is called a1c that’s glycation of the protein in your blood so you want to reduce the glycation simply by knocking out this sugar okay and then vegetable oils especially the corn and the soy oil very high in omega-6 creates a lot of oxidation frequent meals will increase oxidation thus the intermittent fasting so let’s say for example you join the gym right and they have this CrossFit class and they’re working out every single day and year fifty-five years old very bad you’re gonna over train it’s too much exercise without much recovery it’s gonna create a lot of oxidation and then we have cortisol having too much your cortisol over a period of time without enough recovery is really bad this has to do a stress also if you’re taking prednisone or a cortisol or any medication that can create some massive damage and the damage is creating is oxidation so stress in general creates a lot of oxidation on your body but if you’re getting regular exercise and good sleep you can easily counter the stress of life but you need to look at the big picture and really look at the balance of these two okay we want to build up your endogenous antioxidant Network and of course we have trans fats you want to avoid those and then there’s a lot of other things avoiding chemicals pesticides GMO foods all of that creates oxidation and the last thing I’m going to just touch on is exogenous antioxidants raw vegetables cruciferous usually you want to steam some of your cruciferous but then have your salads raw and that’s part of the photo nutrients in cruciferous which give additional health benefits that go beyond just vitamins and minerals alright guys so that was your tip of the day the next step is for you to go ahead and implement this if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, I explain how to slow down the aging process with 3 simple yet incredible life hacks. If you’ve been wondering how to slow down aging, how to look younger, or what the best natural anti-aging tips are—this video will help you.
Some of this information comes from a really fascinating book that typically requires a medical dictionary to get through. But, I’m going to break it down so you can quickly and easily understand what you really need to know about anti-aging.
We’re going to be talking about the balance of oxidants and antioxidants. There are both positives and negatives when it comes to oxidants and antioxidants.
Some oxidants kill off microbes, which is a great thing. It might sound crazy, but too much oxygen can create damage to your cells.
Oxidation has a negative effect on proteins called misfolded proteins. These damaged proteins gunk up and get stuck in the body, which can cause premature aging as well as other serious health problems.
Antioxidants counter oxidation. You can get them from food, but your body also makes antioxidants.
Endogenous – antioxidants made within the body
Exogenous – antioxidants made outside the body
An incredibly important yet misunderstood area is building up your antioxidant network, and getting your body to make more antioxidants. I’m going to show you how to do that without taking external antioxidants.
These are the essential anti-aging life hacks we’re going to go over:
Melatonin – A very powerful antioxidant that occurs when you’re sleeping. It gets rid of hydrogen peroxide.
Exercise – This will build up the endogenous antioxidant network.
Intermittent fasting – The benefit of fasting is autophagy.
Avoid excessive oxidants – Your body makes enough, you don’t need more.
Exogenous antioxidants – Consume more raw vegetables.
