Telomeres And Senior Balance Exercises
Senior Balance Exercises For Anti-aging

Telomere length is a huge topic these days and ties together the concepts of diet and exercises, starting with senior balance exercises, to help slow aging in older adults. Please see more information at http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now New studies are coming out of medical research that looks at telomere length, what effects it and what effects does it have on healthy living. Telomeres are structures at the tips of chromosomes that play a key role in cellular aging. Recently, molecular biologist Elizabeth Blackburn shared a Nobel Prize for her research on telomeres. In her new book, Blackburn argues that you can actually lengthen your telomeres—and perhaps your life—by following sound health advice, including making a habit of not smoking, eating well, sleeping enough, exercising regularly, and cutting down on stress. “Telomeres listen to you, they listen to your behaviors, they listen to your state of mind,” said Blackburn, president of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. Telomeres sit at the end of strands of DNA, like the protective caps on shoelaces. Stress from a rough lifestyle will shorten those caps, making it more likely that cells will stop dividing and essentially die. “We can provide a new level of specificity and tell people more precisely with clues emerging from telomere science, what exactly about exercise is related to long telomeres, what exact foods are related to long telomeres, what aspects of sleep are more related to long telomeres.” Short telomeres increase the likelihood of cells becoming senescent and producing molecules that lead to inflammation, which she said is a huge risk factor for every age-related disease. Blackburn said, her research suggests that lengthening telomeres with medications could be dangerous—that lifestyle changes are far safer than a pill. One of the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to help with telomere heath is to exercise, but a safe workout for an older adult should always start with performing senior balance exercises.
Senior Balance Exercises For Healthy Living
To workout safely, medical professionals like doctors, nurses and physical therapists recommend that aging individuals rehearse senior balance exercises to build a strong foundation of steadiness for all movement activities. As an example, before you pick up a barbell to do Biceps or Triceps muscle strengthening, you can practice a specific equilibrium to help you be steady on your feet. You can start a stability routine such as standing with your feet shoulder width a part and centering your body weight in the middle of your feet. In this position, concentrate on keeping your body weight centered as you move your arms up and down doing your Biceps and Triceps exercise. Focusing on the your body weight centered in your feet will assist in heightening the sensory input from your feet to your balance center in your brain, which will make you more steady overall. You can learn how to practice this and other senior balance exercises by following the demonstration of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
