Skin and Ageing.

Skin and Ageing.

  Many things cause our skin to age. Some things we some we can influence, others we can do nothing about . The skin has three important layers: the outer epidermis, the middle dermis and the inner subcutaneous fat layer. The epidermis is a thin layer that contains the pigment that colours your skin. The thicker dermis layer contains hair follicles, oil glands and blood vessels. The inner, fatty layer serves as a protective barrier to your organs. As you age, the epidermis gradually thins and pigment levels decrease. This results in thinner, paler skin. You may also notice sunspots from UV exposure, known as solar lentigo.

Food is a lot more than simple calories

Food is a lot more than simple calories

Food is a lot more than calories. Research evidence suggests that food also speaks to our genome, which is the genetic blueprint that directs the way the body functions down to the cellular level.  This brings a whole new meaning to the idea of a food chain. Indeed, if our bodies are influenced by what we have eaten – down to a molecular level – then what the food we eat  also could affect our genome. For example, compared to milk from grass-fed cows, the milk from grain-fed cattle has different amounts and types of vitamins A , C and fatty acids. So when we  drink these different types of milk, our cells also receive different nutritional messages. Like wise as a human mother’s diet changes the levels of fatty acids as well as vitamins such as B-6, B-12 and folate that are found in her breast milk. This could alter the type of nutritional messages reaching the child’s own genetic switch, and whether or not this has an effect on the child’s development.  Epigenetics - what is it ? Your genes play an important role in your health, but so do your behaviors and environment, such as what you eat and how physically active you are. Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviours and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence.

Zinc is an essential trace element that’s found and used by every cell throughout your body.

Zinc is an essential trace element that’s found and used by every cell throughout your body.

This critical metal is only needed in tiny amounts .Your  body relies on zinc for growth, maintenance, and numerous biological functions—including hormone creation and balance.
