Aging and dying have concerned humanity for over 5,000 years. When growing up begins to grow, after growing it begins to age, our aging process begins after just 20 years, although we don’t really notice it.
In a context characterized by a tendency to lengthen life, but also to a consequent aging of the population, the management of longevity allows us to evaluate, monitor and manage the state of health and well-being, to minimize the risks of suffering from pathologies, acute and chronic, related to age, but also behavioural mistakes on the one hand and genetic predispositions on the other.
In all living organisms there is a delicate balance between the production of free radicals and their elimination at the hands of antioxidant defence systems.
The rupture of this balance, indicated as oxidative stress, causes the onset of cellular lesions that, if serious and protracted over time, lead to an acceleration of the aging process and the onset of many illnesses.
The causes of increased productionof free radicals are varied: pollution, lifestyle, diet, alcohol, smoking, exercise incongruous, psycho-emotional stress, illness, trauma, inflammation, infections, vascular diseases, cancer, and drug therapy. In a healthy condition, our body is able to prevent damage from free radicals thanks to the natural defence system made of antioxidants, so named because their contrasting the action, in fact, oxidant, free radical. A reduced effectiveness of such a system is due essentially to an absolute or relative deficiency of antioxidants, however determined.
According to evolutionary theory of aging, evolution has led to an optimized genotype whereby a lot of "energy" (understood as adaptation capacity, plasticity, and genome repair ability) is invested in neonatal and juvenile-adult ages at the expense Of what remains for the reparative processes of the geriatric age. This resource drainage has brought a limit to survival.
Contrasting the development of these harmful effects is a task that should be undertaken as early as possible, starting with adulthood. In fact, in aging, then age-dependent alterations may occur in all physiological systems.
In other words it is possible to know if the body is more prone to aging and the pathological conditions related to it (heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, osteoatropathy, cancer, etc.)?
Contrary to the past, today we work only to cure a disease but also to prevent it and improve our physical appearance. But to delay the physiological aging and disease you need to know if your body tends to age faster than your actual biological age.
The "Longevity Score" is an innovative test that is based on the redox status assessment of our body, that is, the extent of oxidative stress and antioxidant potential of our bodies, related to the functionality of our arteries. It is performed quickly and easily with a fingertip (for a small blood draw) and the dignified relief of vasodilatation of the arteries of the fingers. Once the longevity score is taken, it will be possible to implement specific and personalized therapeutic and nutritional pathways to improve the quality of life both in healthy subjects and in people with chronic diseases (hypertension, diabetes, etc.).
A lot of clinical data confirms that health corrective measures are being implemented beforehand, so even after thirty years, life expectancy may be greater and, of course, aesthetics as well. For more information call 06.86211558.
