AGEING – CAUSES, INTERESTING FACTS, PREDICTABLE FAILURES DUE TO AGING, AGING MECHANISMS

A 70 year old grandmother does not look a day older than 30. You ask her the secret. She says – Organic Juice. She called it a fountain of youth! Now you would want to know what organic juice is. Read on.


Organic juice is pulp at its purest form – Contains no chemicals, pesticides, coloring or additives. While even non-organic foods contain less than the maximum legal levels of pesticides, common sense suggests that less is better: Some pesticides have been linked to myriad diseases and conditions, including Parkinson’s and cancer. The more chemicals our bodies consume, the more side effects are caused. Organic farming practices help conserve water and improve soil quality as well. Given the droughts we see occurring every year and the dire reports from environmental experts, these are no small reasons to go organic. Studies have shown that organic foods are often higher in vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorous than their non-organic counterparts. Also since they are made without using much preservatives, they have to be consumed faster which in turn is good for the body and fresh.

Introduced to me by my sister who made it out of cucumber, cumin and some lime juice, it was refreshing, easy to make and the best part was she did not add any SUGAR! Sugar, as we know, is bad for our body. If you are dieting, sugar is a big no-no. But did you know sugar also makes one age faster? Consuming a diet high in refined carbs and sugar leads to the production of AGEs, this may cause your skin to age prematurely. Pre-mature aging not only causes wrinkles and sagging of the skin but also dehydration and a lot of other health problems.

Organic juices are made out of fruits as well as vegetables which are grown without chemical fertilizers and are GMO free. GMO (Genetically Modifies Organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. They do not contain any kind of added sugar which makes them all the more healthier. They flush out toxins from the body and restore the natural antioxidants. Antioxidants fight those nasty free radicals, which can damage skin, and vitamin C builds healthy hair and promotes nail growth. This is why, organic juice is also called as the fountain of youth. They are made out of oranges, beetroots, blueberry, tomatoes, you name it! Of course each fruit or vegetable gets its own health benefits to the table.

Orange is a great source of vitamin C which is important for strong bones. It cuts the risk of heart disease and prevents kidney stone. It is also an amazing fruit which keep your skin tight and glowing. Beetroots help lower blood pressure and help you maintain a healthy weight. It’s also a very good source of Potassium. Going organic is not only best for the environment but also best for you! Go organic, stay healthy.
