Aging factor 3: Oxidation

Oxidation is the basic process of life. This process helps create necessary energy for exchange organs to help us sustain life. Every cell in your body should be provided with a certain amount of oxygen and nutrients to operate normally. However, oxidation also brings the risk such as the apple typically turns into brown when it is placed in the air, so oxidation can also result in damaged cells and toxin releasing, leading to wrinkles, reducing muscles and energy. Oxidation reacts strongly with chemicals and always tries to coordinate with other molecules with free radicals. To work well, they will steal electrons from other compounds, which makes these compounds become free radicals and the electron stealing process continues. This repeated process creates oxidative pressure that gradually destroys cells.

Description: Oxidation


Treatment tips

Absorb colorful foods containing more antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, simultaneously helping free radicals in molecules to be balanced. Studies indicate that potatoes with red or purple peel include twice antioxidants than light peel. Evidences also conclude that antioxidant activity will help the body run smoothly, protect you from oxidative pressure or cell injury, and it’s important to conserve energy regardless at what age you are.

Colorful foods should be absorbed

Green, dark green: kale, spinach, celery, zucchini, kiwi

Yellow or orange: lemon, carrot, sweet potato, yellow squash, apricot

Red: tomato, watermelon, red beans

Gold brown: wheat germ, nut, seed, vegetable oil

Blue or purple: eggplant, beet, raspberry, blueberry, fig, grape

Dark red or black: cocoa bean, tea, chocolate

Herbs (parsley, lily and mint) and oils (coconut, flowers, hyacinth)

Aging factor 4: Acidification

One of the main functions of the body is balancing between acid and alkali concentrations. All cells will work better with mild alkali concentration, in the pH range about 7.2 – 7.4 (PH 7.00 is neutral). It is a good environment for the absorption of nutrients from plants along with vitamins and minerals from outside to strengthen bones, help kidney and liver detoxify more effectively and avoid degenerative diseases. With the ideal alkaline level, your body will be younger, more energy, muscular, tough and you will have smooth skin, shiny hair and bright eyes. However, how can you maintain the right level of alkaline level? The answer is diet – the major factor in balancing alkaline and acid level. We tend to eat more acidic foods such as fish, meat, grain, cheese, egg, sugar, wine, coffee,…If we absorb more acid, our body will have more wrinkles, dry skin, thin and broken nails along with weak hair. Also, because the effect of acid, calcium and magnesium is lost from the bones, bones are weakened and have the risk of osteoporosis.

However, there is a difference between acidic and alkaline foods. For example, lemon juice is acidic food but it has effect in the body as a citrate alkali in metabolism, similar to citrus fruits.

Treatment tips

Absorbing more alkaline foods in the diet will help you neutralize the acidity. Alkaline foods such as vegetables, fruits, legumes are healthy foods which are rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acid, enzymes, immune enzyme and plant nutrients. You should eat 80% of alkaline foods and 20% of acidic foods to avoid acidification, and then keep this rate stable with concentration rate at 70%/30%. You should avoid originally acidic foods such as hard cheese, meat, animal fat and eat foods that can be converted into protein such as vegetables, legumes and yogurt instead. Another potential alkaline source that you can exploit is carrot, cauliflower, apple, olive, rye, coconut, hazelnut, peach, pepper, ginger, soy milk and sesame oil.

In addition, you need to regularly check the acidity of your body by running a PH test or using litmus paper to test on urine for few seconds in the early morning. Compare the color of litmus paper to check with the table. The PH of the urine can be in the “high acid” (4.5) to the “alkali” (8) area but the ideal PH is between 6.4 and 6.8. If the urine contains much acid (less than 6), try to balance the acidity and alkalinity of the body with a healthy diet.
