Active Lifestyle Delays Aging


If you are worried that you aging quickly, ahead of your age, and you appears to be older than your real age, then you might have a problem that has nothing to do with diet, according to a new research.
The new research, conducted by a team of experts at University of California San Diego (UCSD’s) School of Medicine, suggests that women who maintained an active lifestyle as they get older age more slowly than counterparts who pursue a more sedentary lifestyle.

In other words, women can slow the pace of their aging by maintaining an active routine or lifestyle as they get older.

Lead researcher Dr. Aladdin Shadyab said that one should not sit idle for more than 10 hours a day, particularly as one ages. He stressed that physical exercise should start when one is young, and continue to be part of one’s daily life even at the age of 80 years.

The research, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, explains that science of aging lies in our DNA. Throughout the course of one’s life, our cells continuously replicate themselves. After each copy, minute caps, known as telomeres, at the end of DNA strands shorten, which exposes chromosomes to decay.

In the new research, the experts measured participants’ movements for a week using accelerometers and discovered that that those women who exercised for at least 30 minutes a day didn’t have shorter telomeres. It is also worth-mentioning here that several studies have linked shorter telomeres to heart disease and cancer.


A previous research had identified the specific molecule (NRF1) responsible for maintaining so-called telomeres. In that study, researcher had found that those participants who spent 45 minutes exercising on a stationary bicycle got the levels of NRF1 boosted, which kept their cells younger.  

One of the best ways to remain active throughout life is yoga as this Indian traditional type of exercise offers a number of health benefits.
