On one hand, aging is about how we perceive ourselves, and on the other hand, aging involves the natural processes of the body’s aging.
The concept of ‘aging’ has two main components. On one hand, aging is about how we perceive ourselves, our lives, and our bodies. On the other hand, there is another aspect of aging—the natural processes of the body’s aging, which are physiological and irreversible but can be slowed down.
Researchers from the United States have found that the human body begins to age later than commonly believed.
Previous studies on this matter suggested that the body starts to wear down and age after the age of 30. However, a recent experiment has cast doubt on these previous claims. According to new findings, people start aging after the age of 39. Crossing this milestone triggers processes in the body that fit the definition of aging.
It has been established that at the age of 39, intellectual activity in the brain begins to decline. Additionally, during this age period, issues related to muscle dysfunction and deterioration of bone structure are often observed. Melanin production, responsible for the normal functioning and protection of the body, becomes more active. These processes in the body indicate its gradual aging.
It is within our power to slow down the natural physiological aging processes. To achieve this, it is necessary to engage in regular physical activity, maintain a healthy diet, avoid stressful situations, give up harmful habits, and provide adequate rest for the body.
