Focusing on ways to slow ageing by supporting the body’s ability to repair damage to DNA, the immune system and mitochondria, the optimistic conclusions from the book are that we do not have to accept that ageing inevitably leads to diminishing health. Rather we can look forward to enjoying years more vigorous physical and mental health.
United Kingdom – Billions are spent annually to defy the process of aging. From Botox and cheek lifts to all manner of herbal or medicinal cocktails, there’s an entire industry built around the desire to not look or feel one’s age.
But according to Colin Rose, the real secret of slowing down ageing is to tap into the body’s own natural processes. The key shift comes when the body is supported to repair the damage to DNA, the immune system and mitochondria which normally build up as you get older. Yet with that critical support you can greatly reduce of – or in some cases even reverse – what are typically thought of as “age-related disease”.
In his new book, ‘Delay Ageing: Healthy to 100’, Rose shares the latest University research and laboratory studies, before handing readers a simple guide they can follow to embrace years of additional, healthy life.
What if getting older didn’t mean getting ill?
Most people accept that growing older means suffering illness – less energy, a risk of cardiovascular disease, brain disorders, cancer, aching joints and increasing frailty.
Most people shrug and say: “It’s just the way life is”.
Now we know that most people are wrong.
Researchers on ageing, based in the world’s leading universities and medical schools, confirm that we are now entering an unprecedented era for healthy ageing. One that promises significant increases in human health span – by preventing, delaying or in some cases even reversing, the drivers of ageing.
Author Colin Rose is a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts who has written on health, nutrition and science for over 30 years.
Delay Ageing, written for a general audience, reveals and explains the latest research including:
•The 10 fundamental causes of ageing and how each one can be countered.
•How to turn on genes that repair damaged DNA.
•How immune systems can be strengthened to fight disease – whatever your age.
•How to protect your brain as you get older.
•How to lower both blood pressure and blood sugar levels – key threats to longevity.
•How your microbiome affects ageing – and how to ensure a healthy gut.
•How to disconnect biological from chronological ageing.
Ageing is essentially the accumulation of damage – damage to cells, to mitochondria, to DNA, to stem cells, to essential communication between cells – including brain cells – and to the immune system.
When we are younger, that damage still occurs, but our repair mechanisms are good enough to restore us to health. But as we age those repair mechanisms begin to falter.
Delay Ageing shows how you can boost your natural repair mechanisms – and proves that you can slow the rate at which you age. And, therefore, cut your risk of ‘age-related’ illness – to extend the years when you live physically fit, mentally sharp, and happily active.
Delay Ageing culminates in eight practical age-delaying actions that can easily be incorporated into any lifestyle. They are natural, non-drug, solutions you can start tomorrow. An inspiring blue-print on how to live better, longer.
“We do NOT have to accept the fallacy that advancing years automatically means the onset of frustrating or debilitating illness and disease,” explains the author. “We actually need to instead focus on boosting the body’s natural ability to repair and heal.
Continuing, “In this book, I lay out all of the research and evidence in a way anyone can understand. But it’s not just a book about these studies – but an actual concrete action plan for how to live your life now, so you can live healthily for as long as possible. I’m extremely confident many of my readers will greatly increase their chances of living to 100 and beyond.”
‘Delay Ageing: Healthy to 100’ will be released on 19th October, 2020.
