Our bodies goes through a great deal of trouble every day, and most of it goes unnoticed, because the deterioration takes place at a level that the eye cannot discern - right at the cellular level. Since this happens in a discreet way, in a way that does not leave an impression on our minds, we tend to overlook what damage we might be exposing to ourselves on daily basis.

And make no mistake, we do expose ourselves to some severe dangers every day. Pollution, excess sunlight, chemicals in cosmetic and skin care products, hair gel that withers our hair, shoes that weaken our feet - these are only some of the many endurance tests that we subject ourselves to every day for the greater part of our lives.

The human body is a fantastic construct - an evolutionary marvel that has been designed over millions of year of careful refining. It can hold its own against many of the perils we encounter and for the most part, heals on its own. But repeated damage and exposure to harmful environments will eventually result in the body becoming worn out. You can prolong the longevity of your body by playing your part in keeping your body in tip-top (or tip-above average) shape.

Nature, being the wonderful assistant it is, has provided many natural sources from which we can speed up the healing and rejuvenating processes.

When you can play a considerable role in the upkeep of your body, it begs the question why you shouldn't. Most of the ingredients listed above are readily available and are very inexpensively priced. There really is little excuse for not preventing something is that preventable, and which also, left ignored, usually leads to severe and irreversible problems.

Try to include some of the ingredients in your diet. Most of them taste great and bring some variety to your palate, so there's that as well. You don't have to institute a total change in your diet pattern.
