THERE comes a time in life, when we just don’t feel like we used to; when we start to actually feel our age, spurred by a decrease in energy levels and a mind that isn’t as sharp as it once was. Generally accepted as a natural course of ageing, in actuality it is the process of brain ageing, which affects our analytical thinking, multitasking and decline in memory. While it is a part of life, there are three common myths about the ageing of the brain and in general. That is:
1. Getting older leads to frailty
FACT: Muscle volume and strength does gradually decline with age but it can be slowed down or even prevented with regular physical activity and good nutrition.
2. Old people become senile
FACT: About 80% of older adults are healthy enough to enjoy their golden years, even with some degree of cognitive function decline.
3. Age-related diseases are predetermined by your genes.
FACT: Even though the genes you are born with are fixed, your health depends on how you live your life.
Age and nutrition
After age 50, your body does not require as many calories as it did in your 20s. Essentially this means there is less room for unhealthy choices. This makes your daily diet choices crucial for maintaining overall health including for fighting off diseases, increasing your body’s resistance, strengthening muscles and ultimately, ensuring quality of life.
However, food alone may not be sufficient to provide you with a complete and balanced nutrition for this.
